HP Pavilion 17" screen flashes on and off

The screen flashes on and off rapidly (about 1-2 times a second). When it flashes on, it looks normal. The blue light on the power button also flashes on & off. Any suggestions?

Try reinstalling your monitor. You should have a disc that came with all of your equipment.Make sure it is a clean install and there are no other programs running. Also check all connections to make sure they are tight.

If this does not help, do you have another monitor you can install temporarily so that you can work on this problem?

Is this a new monitor installation? You might want to check your hardware compatibility list which you will find under Start>Programs>accessories>compatibility wizard.

Hp pavilion f1703 flashes on and off. Tried pushing F8 for 30 seconds - no result.

have you checked the power connecter at the back of the monitor?

is it the whole PC that is flashing on and off or JUSTr the monitor?

the F8 key when turning on a Windows based PC, will only take you to a screen to choose how to start windows, in Normal mode, safe mode, or commandline mode.

none of this helps a flickering screen.

try and change out the data cable (VGA cable, blue screw in plug) and the power cable if possible.

The way you can see its a backlight problem is after it goes off after that 1 min.
Grab a flashflight shine it on the screen and c if you can c the desktop if you can than its the backlight.

welcome to first time English dot com ! really !
this is texting, it's what ever you want.
so you have a dead monitor? does the OSD work.
that is first, OSD if the ON SCREEN display fails the monitor power pack is dead or the monitor is dead,
monitor schematics can be hard to find
but 1second google search and i see this.
learn to use google?

no symptoms posted, or full English , here ill use google translate for you (so can you, dig?)
OMG the Spanish actually has facts.

P.S. It takes a second to turn black and it seems that something causes excess consumption (low voltage 3 V.), then it is dark and the minute goes to amber, the led."

What does OSD do.
did you know a monitor is only $50 at walmart.
id bet it costs way more to fix any monitor than that.
parts, labor, shipping and bam broke.

the monitor is covered here 100% but no schematics. sorry.

read the words, my monitor is blank there? it tells you step by step what to do. well advised to read that or translate it.

the monitor has 4 buttons on the right
button 1 is OSD menu, this must work all the time with power on.
even with no PC connected. it works.
if not the power supplies inside the monitor are dead. or the power pack is dead, if it has external pack we test that next.

this monitor has LCD back lamp CCFL with inverter.
CCFL or well known to die fast or go dim or ugly yellow.
Id put this think in the trash and get a LCD with LED black lamps
in a heart beat. and never look back to CCFL junk again. IMO

id did not read your manual for you, just skimmed it,
but if it has a power pack id check that first.
then with CCFL (they sold the monitor over 17 years ago)
IF the screen goes back, we use a FLASH light, on the screen
and if you now see DATA of any KIND< the CCFL is bad.
in non geek that is "BAD BACK LAMPS" and supplies to it.

as seen here, ( if this works the back lamps are toasted)
