Answers :

This is a common problem across many monitors, unfortunately. The problem stems from one of two things, typically.

It is either the Power Inverter board (Inverter Mirage Electronics AD-1700 Rev:F 200-000-170DTL1 VERSION:A) or a weak or dying backlight.

If\015\012your monitor comes on for 2 seconds then you can test the backlight by\015\012using the controls to get into the backlight brightnes settings on the\015\012OSD and turning it WAY down.

If that dosen't work then it is\015\012likely bad capacitors on the Power board mentioned above. If you feel\015\012adventurous and know how to solder then you might be able to fix this\015\012yourself. You need to be careful however because you are dealing with\015\012high votage in there and capacitors CAN hold a charge long after you\015\012have unpluged the unit. You can read more about this power board as\015\012well as how to replace the bad caps HERE.

If\015\012that's not for you then I would recomend taking it to a local TV shop\015\012for them to fix. The parts shouldn't be more than $20, but labor can be\015\012expensive.

Or you could replace the monitor. You can get some nice ones from Newegg.com from around $100. Remember to recycle PC parts responsibly!

Dead Monitor Hi, I bought my parents an HP computer for Christmas and now, only 7 months later, the monitor stopped working. w1907 monitor. I've read some comments on here but don't understand what the solutions are saying. I don't know anything about inverters etc. Can a monitor be fixed or replaced since it's only 7 months old? I think that's an extremely short lifespan for a monitor, especially since it's used only a few times a week for short times. Thank you the monitor is dead
