Hi! Looks like that the monitor is near to it's break point. 5 years of service is not bad. Mine just took 4years and have it replaced. The capacitors surely is faulty that it's better to purchase a new one since monitors nowadays got a lot to offer. HOpe this shed some light and thank you for using FixYa!

I tested in my PC with the cables of my own monitor (Benq FP92Wa) and the image pop-up just fine, but after 5 seconds the monitor goes black. I tried to reboot in safe mode but the same thing happens


If the monitor has the same problem on two different computers, it is most likely the monitor has a problem. This monitor is probably about 9 years old, and it would probably cost more to fix it than to buy a new one.

Hannspree HF229H will not stay on


railbird56, Common problem for ALL BRANDS of "cold-cahtode-fluorescent-lamp" back-lit lcd monitors! Here are your options!!! Cheapest to most costly!! 1. Warranty repair. 2 DIY repair???? 3. Local or distant repair. 4. possible old + cash swapout with Hannspree for refurbished same model?? 5. Trade-in for new wide screen. My best guess on your monitor (no history) is that the unit's SMPS is in partial or full shutdown mode during it's black screen moments. How much do you know about "electronic ballasts" "switch-mode-power-supplys" and how to repair them?? 12fixlouie

Make sure that your computer isn't going into Standby or Hibernate mode. You can test this by briefly pressing the power button and wait to see if the screen comes back on.

Samsung monitor picture clicks off after 2-5 seconds...


Yes, It sounds like the backlight inverter circuit is shutting down. No inverter power, no backlight. On some monitors the inverter circuit will shot circuit the power power supply which makes the power light flash on some it just kills the backlight. You can usually check with a flashlight. Hold the flashlight pointed at the screen and see if you can see any of the icons or background picture. If you can then it is the backlight circuit or backlight tubes, usually the circuit.

HP F1903 monitor


sure the F1903
is a LCD monitor but is old , it has
and CCFL black lamp.
it has board inside that is the power supply /inverter
this board runs the lamps.
the lamps love to fail after 10 long year of service
so when monitor fails, push the menu botton on the front
is the OSD menu dead (monitor brains inside)???

see bottom of this page , see CCFL and PCB there?
if lamps bad replace them
if PCB bad replace it, seen sold on Ebay , vastly, there.

Monitor problem


You are experiencing an inverter board failure. You will need to replace or repair the inverter. The inverter drives the CCFL lamps that illuminate the screen if the lamps draw to much current or components on the board are overheating it will shut down the backlights. Some monitors have cold solder joints on the toroidal coils of the inverter that causes this problem, very typical with HP monitors, If you are handy with a solder iron you may try just re-soldering board and replacing push-pull transistors for a few more years of use. Provide make and model and I can be more specific about probable cause and solution.
