If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Monitor wont power off


The blue light probably simply means that the computer is not turned on, but the monitor is. Just turn off the monitor, and the blue light should go away.

My Hewitt Packard flat screen monitor keeps shutting off, it will come back on then shut off again.The green light stays on.


my HP w1907 flat screen keeps shutting off after playing a game, but does it frequently when changing browsers also.The blue lite stays on, if I click and return it back on blue the monitor opens for one second.
Also I can't return the screen resolution back to its original setting, which is 1440x900 because any browser home page has a 4"white space on both sides of the monitor. I can't hit my auto selectbutton because that causes the problem. I spent $60.00 for tech support but no help on fixing the problem. One tech directed to buy hardware helper,that was about$30.00! I just keeps directing me to my original chipset setting which I told the tech that's where my problem started! My daily important update keeps popping up with it,so where's the HP support when you paid for it? Problem still not resolved. Joe...aka jljoekool@charter.net,,I bought the HP monitor and tower together,so it's a HP PROBLEM

Hp flat panel monitor comes on shows logon and then blank screen


Ok, another words, monitor powers up for few seconds and shuts down by itself. If green LED on the front panel turns off as well or stays on?
If stays on, then inverter turns into protection mode because of old backlight lamps.
If it turns off in same time with an image on the screen, then there are some bad electrolytic capacitors in the power supply.

Same here- I understand that the capacitors are bad and need to be replaced. I am going to undertake it myself. Radio Shack sells them.

Monitor problem


erickalin - it sounds like your computer might have shut down and failed to come back up again. If you have access to another monitor, try hooking it up to your computer instead of the one you normally use (that won't stay on). If the second monitor won't stay on, the problem is your computer. You might have to take it to your local computer geek or computer store to get serviced. If your computer DOES work with the second monitor, you might need to have your monitor serviced or replaced. Good luck!

supposed2b, I think you have the same problem, although your computer doesn't even sound like it's powering up. Your power supply might be faulty or an internal component (CPU or memory most likely) of your computer has died. Double check your power connections and ensure that when you press the power button you hear the computer start up and the light on the front comes on (hopefully green or blue, but not yellow or red). Again, you might need to take your computer in for service.
Good luck!
