Question about HP Pavilion F1703 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

HP Pavilion Vs17 LCD MOnitor

This monitor was working fine. My daughter turned it off , at the monitor power switch, over night and I have been unable to get anything on the screen since. I hooked up a old CTR to the CPU and it works. I have also tried the VS17 on other CPU's with not positive results. The power button on the monitor blinks but will not remain lit.

    I believe I'm having the same issue, I have a HP Pavillion f1703. Windows did an update that "required an automatic restart" of my computer and now whenever I disconnect and reconnect the power, the light will flash 2 times and then nothing happens. I connected another monitor to this PC and the computer works fine. If anyone can help, that would be great.

    I have been leaving my computer and monitor on power save so that I can just move the mouse and the computer "comes alive" quickly. Tonight I cam home, moved the mouse and the monitor came on, I was checking email when suddenly the screen went black... the power is still on, the blue light starts blinking and the screen keeps trying to come back on and for a nano second I can see the desktop but it winks out and goes black. I turned everything off and rebooted but same thing. I checked all wiring and connections everything looks fine. I had to use my old laptop here (thank goodness for backup!) to get online and search for an answer! This monitor has been fine for gosh, 5 years? Is it on its last legs? Time to get a new one? Worth repairing? Any idea what's happened to it?

    My monitor just quit over night too.I called HP tech support to see if they could fix it and they wanted me to pay them to answer yes or no!! I have only had it a year.You would think their products would last longer.

    I turned my power off on the monitor using the power button and when I try to turn it back on it will blink with the blue light. No other problems with the monitor until this. I tried another power cable and of course I disconnected all the cables, waited for a long time and then tried it again with no luck. Any ideas?

    Same problem, left the monitor on w/o shutting it off ever. Decided to turn it off the other day and when I came back the morning I saw the power light blinking; haven't been able to restore power to it since. 1 yr 3 mnths old. 2nd replacement monitor from them, first did the same. Probably has some back alley asian computer chip in it from 10 yrs ago.

My monitor is flashing different colors... it wont start up

chanel_luv_u, Could be possible internal SMPS/CCFL inverter power supply problem. If the PC is ok with different "known-good" monitor connected to PC, then vs17 monitor will need some work done on it. Do some reading here first for some clues!!! The first place I would look at on ANY ccfl back-lit lcd monitor that starts doing "very strange things" would be the units "switch-mode-power-supply/CCFL inverter circuit". Try YOUTUBE for video clips of DIY lcd monitor repair to see if unit can be fixed for less than $6 in parts. Keep this in mind though, Your vs17 isn't any different than any other ccfl back-lit lcd monitor in it's basic design and operation. Do some reading of fixya LCD monitor technicians profiles for more info. Let us know what plans you have after you do your research. Bye for now. 12fixlouie

Hpvs17e white backround is pink

hucknannie, Power down the pc and monitor. Then disconnect and reconnect the VGA cable a few times to the rear of the pc. then turn system back on and re-boot. If your "PINK" screen still there, then you may need to have unit refurbished with new "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" or have the internal "switch- mode-power supply/ccfl-inverter-supply" inspected and repaired. Yes, before you do anything, visit this web blog about HP monitors!!! Read and make note that people are still visiting the blog even after 4 years!! Hope this response helps.

My hp monitor keeps going dark every time i turn off the monitor and the whole computer, but i can still see the background of my monitor but it keeps going dark

qalmar1217, Power supply may be bad and need some work done on it! First, go visit this site and do some reading. I suspect your monitor no different than what you will be reading about. Your symptom(problem) not new. In fact it happens to be an epidemic disease among CCFL back-lit lcd monitors of all brands. Do some research in my fixya profile and you will see what I mean. Good luck with the repair. Come back here if this was of some help to you and rate this response. 12fixlouie
