If it is a tube type monitor, (i.e. not LCD) I would suggest replacing it.

IBM 8303 DOESN'T SUPPORT MY FLATSCREEN HP VS15


2 steps:

1. plug the hp vs15 into another computer and see if it works, if not could be a bad monitor.
2. If you have the old monitor, plug it in to the IBM computer and in windows lower the resolution down to 640 X 480. Now turn off the computer and plug in the VS15 monitor. If resolution was an issue it should work now.

Hope this helps

My monitor (HP vs15) is flickering for about 5 seconds and then goes black. I managed to get it to turn back on and stay on, but now it is very dim.


It sounds like the LCD inverter is dying.

It would be cheapest to have it repaired but it would make the most sense to buy a new monitor.

If you have it repaired it might just be another part that dies next week.

Vs15 (Gray, Metallic) 15 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor: you mash the power button and the light will come ...


Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.


Monitor is bad for sure. Try another known good monitor on your computer and if the problem stops then you know for sure the original monitor is bad. Hope this helps.

Monitor stays asleep


Check in the BIOS and see what your monitor settings are.
Did you change the sleep mode or power off mode? What do you do to make it come back on? Sounds like it might be getting too hot and/or going bad. Try it on another machine and see what it does. Also try another video card because the video card could be going bad.

Hp vs15, black screen, power light goes on and off like it is in sleep mode


Monitor is dead. The LCD inverter board probably went out and needs replacing. More than likely, it will cost you over $100 to get it fixed. It's better to spend the money on a new monitor.
