a HP monitor. as old as 2006... (o0ps)
read the manual yet? on "power saver modes" turn off them?
i bet you dont know spec, on caps. it's not published by HP ever.
most are +80% - 20% for filters. (ever seen that?)
so a 100uf can read 180uF, or 80uf and is IN SPEC.
but no caps stated, by you, lots there are...
my guess you are
looking for the caps used in china long ago that all failed, every one.
first off you never fully stated whats wrong, in DETAILS.
first have good running pc , with live VGA output (using VGA are you)>? unstated...
the MON, will now live sync, now , Horz and vert, on both pins
the OSD screen now works,
if not the monitor is bad.?
or see No/syn, no sig, out of range or no input errors.
Monitor Going to Sleep
see page 34? in your manual yet?
and page 31, turn of power saver ?
if OSD is dead, say so first.
OSD can be locked. push mon menu button for 10sec, now unlocked
then go to OSD screen
When the monitor is in normal operating mode, the Power li
ght is aqua-white or green (depending on model) and the
monitor uses the normal watts of power. For power us
age, refer to "Technical Specifications" (Appendix B).
The monitor also supports a power-saver mode that is
controlled by the computer. When the monitor is in the
reduced-power state, the monitor screen is
blank, the backlight is off, and the
Power light is amber. The monitor uses
minimum power. When the monitor is "awakened," a brief
warm-up period occurs before the monitor returns to
normal operating mode. The energy-saving reduced power stat
e activates if the monitor does not detect either the
horizontal sync signal or the vertical sync signal. The powe
r-saver feature must be activated on your computer for this
feature to work, << read that carefully?
turn this off ? first?
the early models of the monitor
had CCFL back lamps, and the 2 inverters are on the main power board. left side here
Hello, I have exactly the same problem. Also, when I take the cable off from the monitor, the light turns green, and something comes up on the screen. It is a blue box saying "Please check video cable connection." But when the cable is connected to the computer tower, the light goes "amber" again. So is it a problem with the monitor? or with the computer tower?
Thanks in advance.
