It can be the power supply, backlight inverter circuits, bad lamp assemblies.
If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, 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 HP monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/

hi the cause is screen back light not working properly. you need to remove the back cover of the monitor to access the internal part of the monitor. then look for the connector of the cold cathode fluorescent tube back light going to the power inverter board of the back light you will noticed a dry joints which cause a loose connection that is why you hear a sound that cause of spark. you need to re soldered the connector or replaced if totally burned.

Why is my HP vs17e monitor blue power light blinking?


the blinking of power led means that the power supply is not working fine, this can be caused by:
  1. a puffed capacitors in the secondery side of the power suplly
  2. a shorted transistor in the inverter section
  3. a damadged flyback transformer in the inverter section
to solve the problem, unplug the LCD from the power source, wait for 30 mn to discharge the main filter capacitor (150 uf, 400 V), look at the capacitors, if they looks good, check the transitors, if you find a shorted one (0 ohm read) change it. don't forget to test the continuity of the flyback transformer (primery and secondery). i hope that this will help you to solve the problem.

HP vs19 monitor does not turn on.


You may have to inspect the inside of the monitor. You may have to dry it out from the inside and look for burned component which may be caused by a short due to the moisture.

Monitor turns off after about 3-5 seconds


I would say your monitor is bad if you have tried it on 2 different monitors and it does the same on both. Check your warranty expiration date, some monitors have 2 or 3 years warranty. If it's still under warranty, you may be able to have it replaced or repaired.

Hp vs 19 lcd monitor and it randomly just turns off and then flashes back on for 2-3 seconds then goes back off again


phantasighz, Did you swap out the monitor to get online? Or has the HP LCD mysteriously start working fine again? We need a littile more history here???? Once the LCD goes to BLACK, will it stay black, or will it all by it's self try to start up again, and then repeat the whole cycle again forever? Did you buy it new? How old is it? Have you talked to HP to see if they have swapout program? You send them your's+$40 to $90, and they send you same model refurbished(new CCFtubes/inverter/smps) installed. If you don't know by now, you are dealing with a lighting problem. Do you have any of the new energy saving curlie-Q screw-in compact-fluorescent light bulbs? Their high voltage source is derived alittle different than the way your monitor does it, and of course the Cold Cathode Fluorescent tubes are thinner and straight and hung horizontally on the opposite side of the LCD/FPD you look at. All you need to do to learn more about your problem and what hundreds of others are doing to repair their LCDs is GOOGLE search this: bad caps in lcd monitors. Hope this info helps you understand the technology better. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @aol.com
