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.

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!!! http://www.lesliewong.us/blog/2005/05/02/hp-pavilion-f1703-flatpanel-disolay-blackout-solution/ 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
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!!! http://www.lesliewong.us/blog/2005/05/02/hp-pavilion-f1703-flat-panel-display-blackout-solution/ Read and make note that people are still visiting the blog even after 4 years!! Hope this response helps. Feel free to leave a comment and also rate this response on fixya. 12fixlouie
qalmar1217, Power supply may be bad and need some work done on it! First, go visit this site and do some reading. http://www.lesliewong.us/blog/2005/05/02/hp-pavilion-f1703-flat-panel-display-blackout-solution/ 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
I have reviewed your problem and have the fallowing for you to aces.
First, power off all devices and monitor.
Second. disconnect all devices from the PC and Monitor.
Please make sure the monitor is disconnected from it power source.
Next, hook up monitor to PC and start PC, along with monitor.
Next, enter menu on HP vs17 and reset.
Allow to run for ten or 15 minutes, watching the video on screen for imperfections.
If all looks OK, hook up your other devices and enjoy.
I hope this has helped you. Please let me know how things work out for you.
