Have the same monitor and had the same problem. The problem is bad electrolytic capacitors in the power supply circuit. Replace C110 and C111 and you will have the problem fixed. The original caps are 820uF at 25V and they are in parallel for a total of 1640uF. I only had a 1000 and a 560 and placed them in parallel. All is good now.

Get this fixed before it takes out other parts in the power supply. Took me about 30 mins. Good luck,

Ryan

AOC Monitor says "no signal" and won't wake up!


This monitor refuses to wake up because it cannot find the signal from the computer.

When the light is amber, force the pc to shut down by holding the power button until all lights go off. Then, after about 10 seconds, power the pc back up again.

If this does not start your monitor, unplug all the monitors connections and plug them back in again. These things should reform the connection from the pc to the monitor.

good luck

Monitor problem - Dark colors, slow screen refresh


It sounds to me like the picture tube in the monitor is going out. I began to wonder if it was your video card until you mentioned that you used it with various computers. This tells me it's the monitor itself. Unfortunetly, I think your monitor may be due for retirement.

I have the exact same issue with the f1703 monitor - the OSD will not turn off. Apparently, this model monitor was defective, and was recalled by HP. However, they failed to give notice, so I would recommend following up with them to attempt to get it replaced. Good luck!
