On my monitor I had the 8 pin smt FET's short out. The CCFL transformers were not bad. You can use a ohm meter to determine if the transistors are shorted or open. If you use FET's like mine did, you can monitor the out put for voltage. Mine was 12 volts pulsed DC. Good luck.

I have an HP Pavilion f1703 monitor that has a problem. The power cord has an AC converter mid-way thru ints length. there is a little green light that comes on when plugged in. The monitor seems to go...

You need to find out if the AC adapter is still putting out 12vdc with a load such as car 12v bulb, the problem can be in the monitor also, this is a bad model and was part of a recall a long time ago, it has problem with bad solder joints on the 4 TOROID inductors.
You need to remove old solder, clean the TOROID leads and resolder.
If you Google "HP F1703 problem/recall' you will get a lot of hits.

Or just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.

When I turn my monitor on...............the switch is blue instead of green and will not come on..............

Romove old solder from the 4 TOROID (round) inductor leads, clean them real well and resolder, check the caps and the transistors (4, c5706/5707) also.

There is usually an identical resistor somewhere else on the circuit board, so if you cannot read the colors of the burnt one, you can read the colors from an identical resistor on the same board. If you just replace the resistor, it will probably just burn out again or damage another component, you have to find the cause of the resistor burning out, most likely an electrolytic capacitor failing. Look for bloated or seeping capacitors and replace those as well. Also look for broken or burnt toroid coils.

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.

No power

The inverter boards for the backlights fail on these HP F series monitors. Sometimes it is cold solder joints on toroidal coils. Sometimes the transistors that drive the output transformers (4). It is not difficult to repair if you have good soldering skills. I usually resolder the toroids and replace the transistors regardless of culprit. You may see the heating effects of bad components (discoloration) on the board.
