Question about HP Pavilion F50 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
Gstanz52, Oh, Oh, looks like someone needs a new wide screen lcd monitor!!! What is the "date of manufacture" from the rear label???? Maybe the "black screen of death" has finally caught up with your 6 to 8 year old lcd monitor. I would guess that the internal electronic ballast circuit (inverter) has failed and will not supply 500 to 1000 vac to light-up the cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" any more!!! Next thing to do is go HERE: http://www.lesliewong.us/blog/2005/05/02/hp-pavilion-f1703-flat-panel-display-blackout-solution/ Do some reading to determine if a possible DIY refurbishment of your unit is in your future. If you want to try refurbishing unit, then do some reading in the fixya profiles of "budmrtn" "buddymc" "12fixlouie" (me) for more information and or do comment to this post. Then you should watch some video clips at YOUTUBE of owners/ technicians disassembling and repairing typical CCFL back-lit lcd monitors.
My advice to you is: Get new higher resolution Wide Screen unit. Then and only then, attempt a refurb job on F50 to keep as a working antique spare monitor. 12fixlouie
