Question about HP L1950 LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Can't get base to pivot so monitor faces front

I just purchased an HP L1950 LCD monitor. The monitor ships with the screen facing up (parrallel to the base). I've tried to pivot it forward, but it moves about 2 inches and then feels like more pressure would break it. How do I get it to face front?

    I have the same problem! Is there a lock somewhere? Could it it have anything to do with the pin you have to remove to make it swivel?
    Is it a hardware failure?

    TILT IT MORE FIRMLY ! I too feared I would break my recent-purchase, so I did not take it past a firm resistance. But went to my tech dept at work, and they demoed for me, just tilt it more firmly past the point of strong resistance and it tilted fine (then I tried it on theirs). It was good to try it elsewhere first, but trust me on this; AS LONG AS that LOCKING PIN has been REMOVED at the second (upper) hinge small opening [if there's a oval hole with nothing in it, you're good-to-go), this will work

Hello,

The problem you have is usually caused by a bad power supply in the monitor. If you can solder you can usually fix the problem by replacing a few bad parts. The bad parts are called capacitors. If you go to our web site at:
www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm We have some pictures posted of what to look for when you take the back off of the monitor. You can order replacement capacitors from several web sites or we can provide them for you. The values will be marked on the sides of the ones in your monitor. If you don't want to do the repair yourself we do offer a repair service for $35 plus return shipping. Contact me if you have more questions or need the repair done by our techs.

I hope this helps.

mcdevito75 here, You should be able to hold the monitor at the 9 and 3 O"clock position and simply use your hands to tilt the monitor to it"s desired position, look for any Locking type knobs on the back of the monitor Not the monitor itself but the base, the part the monitor is attached to, if so Loosen knob--s just enough to move monitor then re-tighten when done.

When i power up gateway screen is black


Most likely, its a power supply issue. Have fixed a couple of these by replacing bad capacitors on the power supply board. A bad capacitor will have the top bulging, not flat on top as it should be. The way to get the monitor apart is a little tricky. You will need to remove the screws around the top, sides, and bottom, Do Not remove screws on back in the middle. These screws hold the metallic pan that houses the power supply it's self. I used an orange pealer from Tupperware to pray the front face plate away from the back. You can use a screwdriver, if you don't mind a little marring on the face plate plastic. It's not easy removing the front face piece, lots of interconnecting plastic locks all.around the front face plate. Using your pry tool and pulling (you'll need to use a little muscle) to get the front off. Once face plate is loose, you'll notice the screen is connected to the power supply, one in the middle usually can be pulled and disconnected using your hand. I suggest taking pictures before removing the other wires holding the screen to the power supply. At this point, the front plate is removed, and the screws holding the the screen have been removed, wires disconnected, and power supply in view. Best of luck

LCD screen totally white when turn on


The HP is a flat screen monitor used with many desktop computers. When the LCD on your HP monitor goes white, it is an indication that your monitor's inverter board has gone bad. The inverter board is a small circuit board that transfers power from the monitor's main circuit board to the LCD screen. Replacing the inverter board means dismantling the HP monitor.

1. Power down your computer and unplug the HP monitor cable from the back of your desktop. Disconnect the power cable from the back of the monitor. Relocate the monitor to a flat work surface. Place the monitor with the screen facing downward.

2. Remove the Phillips-head screws from the monitor's base stand and from the back cover. Lift the base stand off of the monitor and remove the back cover. Peel away the foil from inside the monitor around the internal circuit board.

3. Locate the inverter board near the bottom of the monitor's casing. Unplug the power cables from either side of the inverter. Loosen the Phillips-head screws from the inverter board. Lift the old inverter out of the monitor's casing and set it aside.

4. Place the new inverter inside the monitor. Replace the Phillips-head screws and fasten it in place. Reconnect the power cables to the connectors on each side of the new inverter. Replace the foil around the outside of the main circuit board.

5. Replace the back panel and base stand, and their retaining Phillips-head screws

I hope you find it very helpful.

Hp pavilion f1930 shows pic for 2 secs. then blank


Rather than guessing, or blaming the computer, I fix the F1903 backlight problem. Power the monitor and using a bright flashlight check the screen to ensure there's an image, or the menu when you press the menu button. Nearly every one of the F1703 and F1903 monitors I've repaired have all been backlight issues. If you have an image proceed with these instructions. This is a repair for those people competent in component level electronics repair with good soldering skills. Items needed, Crosstip screwdrivers, fine tipped soldering pencil, fresh rosin core solder, (4) "2SC5706" or "C5706" Transistors. Remove the 4 screws holding the base, set the base aside. Lay the monitor face down on a surface that won't damage the screen or Bezel. Remove the 4 screws holding the back on.Carefully pry the back away from the bezel. Be careful in doing this because the display controls are attached to the bezelremove the 4 screws holding the control board on. Turn Monitor face up, remove bezel. With the Monitor Face up remove the Machine screws around the edge of the case. Carefully place the monitor face down again without having the LCD fall out of the Monitor frame. Peel the foil Tape back on one end of the frame and using small pliers, unplug the 4 CCFL plugs (these go to the 4 lamps, I believe you have to remove the VGA and DVI connector Hex socket screws and screws around the power input. Carefully lift the back up and unplug the LCD, you'll have to remove the adhesive backed ribbon cable retainer. Set the LCD somewhere safe.The board with the 4 CCFL plug sockets is the Inverter board, unplug it fomr the Logic board, Remove the screws holfding it in as well as the 2 plastic clips (Squeeze these one at a tim with needle nosed pliers while gently lifting the board up.set the Monitor fram aside as you're going to focus on the inverter board. Using a LIGHTED magnifier, look for cold solderjoints, dull gray and pitted looking. One by one remove the solder with a desoldering braid (I mark the board with a sharpie pen to remember where all of the questionable joints are.) Using a fine tipped soldering pencil REMOVE the solder and replace with fresh rosin core solder. Be VERY careful not to disturb any of the surface mount components on the board. There are 2 large gray boxy looking capacitors with 2 transistors around each one. Check the solder connections there carefully on the capacitors. Look for signs of arcing, blackened spots or overheated circuit board. The 4 transistors in this area are (2S)C5706, replace them all, they're about a dollar apiece on EBAY, I would NOT recommend using a "SK or EGC Equivilent". Once the transistors are replaced, reassemble the monitor, up to the point of where you put the plastic case back on. with the monitor face up, plug in power and a signal cable form the computer and carefull press the power button on the Control board, the monitor should work. This is the most common fault with this monitor, if it doesn't work, go back and check all of the solder joints and resolder any you may have missed. Once the monitor works again, reassemble the plastics onto the frame, attach the base. I hope this helps, I can't promise this will resolve the issue every time, but it has in virtually every one of this model I've repaired. This repair helps the "no backlight or comes on then goes dark" problems. Randy L. Bray

Cracked face panel on monitor


Yes, the LCD screen "face panel" can be replaced. However, note that this part is the most expensive part of the monitor. If your monitor is more than a year or two old, it may be difficult to find a replacement and it may be more cost effective to simply replace the whole monitor.
