Look for bad caps in the power supply first.

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 (they should be replaced in a set), 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
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Screen does not go on.


You may have backlight inverter circuits failure or power supply failure, look inside for bad capacitors in the power supply first since it is easy to do, post back what you see inside so we can guide you further, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps, inverter, or lamps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Hp vs17 has white screen at boot. I have eliminated the chord from the tower and the tower works fine. I have audio, no video. Only a white blank screen. It does not blink or flicker. It just stays white....


There are three choices here...bad screen, bad connection, or bad video card, if the card is integrated onto the motherboard, then that part of the motherboard could be bad. If you have access to another monitor or a TV with a vga input, try the computer with another monitor. If you get a signal on that other monitor then you know you either had a bad connection with the other monitor or you lost the screen on the old one. Go back and reseat your video connections with the computer off. Don't ever remove or move cables to the monitor and video with the computer running...the screen can suffer permanent damage. If there is no signal on any monitor, then either you have a bad vga cord or your video graphics card had died.

Monitor power light is blinking. The screen is blank.


Hopefully it will go away if you can re-install your video driver. I guess it depends on how fast it blinks. These monitors are not easy to fix. Try and connect to different computer. Let's hope you can reinstall the driver and not have to service monitor.
