Fp 7317 My monitors green light stays on, but the screen will come on for a second then goes off

  • kandy27 Oct 30, 2008

    Green light comes on....compaq screen shows.....then goes blank. I can turn it off and on again and the desktop screen will come on but only for a few seconds.

    My screen goes off at random and after I cycle it off/on it is back but sometimes for hours or seconds before it starts doing it again. It happened twice as I was typing this. All connections between the monitor and the cpu are good.

I've noticed with my FP7317, the problem is not the LCD panel going out, but the backlight. I can just barely make out high contrast shapes on the monitor (such as the "Check Video Cable" box). Using a dual-monitor setup, I can get the FP7317 to light up whenever I change it's refresh rate, but that only lasts for about 5 seconds, and it's dark again. Any ideas on how to get the backlight back on?

    If you can't fix it any other way, check outhttp://www.inventgeek.com/Projects/Backl...

    Be careful with the thin glass LCD panel! It cracks very easily (now I know)!

Could be a bad invertor board. Is the monitor still under warranty. Compaq can repair it. They'll come to your house. Compaq and HP are now the same company. http://h40059.www4.hp.com/warranty/delivery/levels.php

Saw this happen on a monitor before, opened it up, found cold solder joints (where the component leads were not soldered very well to the circuit board), fired my solder gun up, resoldered every suspicious looking joint and presto! Been working fine for over a year now. :-)

I turn my screen on and after 15 seconds it turns off but the green power light is still on

Try holding a flashlight (or other very bright light) an inch or two away from the screen while it's on. If you can see your background very faintly, then the backlighting of your monitor has gone out.
There are a lot of tutorials on how to replace backlighting (like this one: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Replace-a-LCD-Backlight/ ) or you can just buy a new monitor.
If you can't see anything with the flashlight, then it might be a bad capacitor, which is usually about the same in cost and labor as a new monitor.

My screen goes black occasionally. I unplug it

There could be some faulty capacitors on the inverter board which are buldging or leaky.

Monitor turns on and screen comes up for about 1 second and then turns black. Green power light stays on and green

This will be a fault with the inverter section that powers the ccfl lights usually a transistor or an i.c replaced will cure the problem
