20 Most Recent HP Vs17 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor Questions & Answers

old VS17 LCD.with nasty CCFL back laps.
did you know most CCFL LCD are now dead, from age,
most that is , used every day most the day. 20,000 hours life.
well its bad, and you want to fix a DEVICE that has no documents to support it, (schematics are not sold for it)
the operators manual is easy to find, posted links here to it vast times.
the other odd thing on this monitor is the power saver in its OSD
turn it off first and the timer by same name.
so it has the fact china, caps, desease as most did then.
learn that in electronics, when a cap shorts, it then blows up other parts, that are very hard to find, and buy, now.
some parts are contract parts (HP secret) with no real P/N used.
no standard P/N used, like chips and diodes and transistors.
sure there may be a fuse, did you look for one?
why not buy a LCD with LED back lamps, that have 3 good features,
1: it dont have CCFL 2010 and newer, wider the screen the more true this year.
2: and the LED back lamps last forever. mostly.
3: the caps wont blow up. the bad cap era is over.

buying this invites same problem set.

see used on fleabay, 2007 date stamped,\
fuses are marked, Fn (F for fuse and n for a number ID)
why bother? the labor to fix it is 5 times prices of new one.
buy refurb at walfart.



just be careful to look up any monitor to be sure 2 things
1: made 2010 or newer.
2: has the words LED back lamps in the spec.

this old monitor has 2 issues.
1: it has CCFL tubes that love to burn out (backlamps)
most this old are long go, yell,dim.,blinking or DEAD.
2: push the menu button on front of mon. turn off power saver.

3: if the PC goes to sleep, or hibernete mode (parked)
then that is 100% normal
if you dont like feature then go to windows control panel
click power, ICON and turn off all monitor sleep /hibernate modes.

that assumes windows, no OS stated.

if the lamps are dead,
use flash light pointed to sceen, see data. ? bingo for bad CCFT tubes.
as seen here

push the auto set button on the monitors.
it has reset too. stated in the manual.
does it fail on PC #2 is no then the PC you failed on is bad.
NO PC stated
no OS stated is this XP
or the monitor is bad, as all are this old they die.
the 2nd PC test solves this in seconds work.
even an older Laptop has VGA on the rear, that can be used to do this.

spilled coffee or cola on the the desk
soak it in water, with 1 drop dish soap.
let is side there, even lay down paper towels soaked.
then in 15 to 30min, it will un glue.

this is not a PC question, or electronics
pure mechanics.
even ash tray or vase can do that, if sugar drinks spilled.

Should also check the connection between the monitor and computer. If something is wrong there the monitor will not turn on - only the standby light will be on.

If not turning on at all and you have confirmed that power is reaching its innards then the most probable culprit is the units power supply.

If this happens before you turn your computer on, then your monitor is automatically saving power. Just turn your computer (the big box) on before the monitor, and it'll be fine.
If this happens after you turn your computer on, you have a power problem. You can either get it fixed, or my recommendation would be getting it replaced.

Try to change the screen resolution and frequency setting of your graphic card.
1. Restart your PC
2. Before getting into splash screen, press F8 frequently
Choose enable VGA mode by pressing up arrow and press Enter, wait until finish loading. Now the display looks bigger, change the screen resolution to best fit to your Monitor (normally 1360X800). DO NOT CLICK OK>go to advance tab> Monitor tab, choose 60Hz for screen refresh rate, NOW you may KLIK OK

Try totally disconnecting the monitor and reboot your system.
Disconnecting the VGA connections.
After the system reboots, plug the monitor in and power on and reconnect the VGA connection.

You're going to have to make sure you have the right video drivers for your computer installed. Usually running windows update and installing all optional updates will resolve this. Also make sure that the refresh rate is set to what is native to the display, which would be 75hz for that model

It sounds like your power supply on the monitor is starting to give out. Those are very difficult to replace if built into the monitor itself. You may not have much choice but to purchase a new monitor.

This not good, the problem is in the video processing board that is part of the LCD panel, not cost effective for repair, cheaper to replace.

Yes you could fix it yourself by checking, and if needed re-installing the audio drivers into the XP operating system. Check the device manager and verify that the audio drivers are installed.
