Question about HP Pavilion F1903 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Going to Sleep

The power supply to our PC (eMachine) recently died (our outside powerline was hit by lightning - which also blew the PC surge protector). We replaced the PC power supply (ourselves) and now the (F1903) monitor states "Going to Sleep" and goes into a power saver mode (solid amber light) almost immediately upon being turned on. If I'm fast enough, when it first comes on I can hit the Menu button on the monitor and see the menu, but it quickly goes back to "Going to Sleep" again.

We've tried unplugging (power) and re-plugging. We've connected the montior into a laptop and gotten same results. We've replaced the monitor cable and gotten a "Check Video Cable" message. After plugging the monitor into another computer (laptop) we've got the same message.

The monitor is out of the warranty period.

    I have an HP Pavilion a1730n with an HP vs19e monitor that keeps locking up the monitor goes black but I think the processor stay running. The only way to get it back is by unplugging the system. I have window Vista and this problem is not consisting but it happens at least once a day and it is very irritating to get it to run again.

Due to the power surge, it is highly possible that the monitor was given a boot by your computer on it's way out.

This will short out a very small transistor inside the monitor on the video board and in turn, then monitor cannot see that there is a signal so goes to sleep.

If you get brave enough to venture inside the screen, then check near the cable input. The transistors are only around 3mm and have 3 legs (two one side and one in the middle on the other).

If you find anything like that burnt (get a magnifying glass) then replacing the board is the easiest option. Just don't be tempted to wipe the board before you look at everything very closely, you may wipe away the tiny bit of evidence you are looking for.

Hope it helps =)

I have a LED TV that was hit with a power surge caused by lightning.


Could be your household insurance would cover the damage.

Unless the lightning strike was very local to you, on your side of the local substation, the responsibility for the cost of repair or replacement could be the power company's.

Surges from lightning strikes aren't supposed to get past the electrical substation.

Old-fashioned valve tvs and radios sometimes survived huge surges on the powerline and even minor lightning strikes to the antenna but solid state semi-conductors and micro chips aren't very tolerant to overloads of any sort. These days a tv is not longer a tv in the conventional sense but like cars and radios should be considered as just another computer that is full of CMOS chips which are extremely sensitive to overloads and static discharges. Even the screen of your tv is made up of semi-conductors.

I would be very surprised if the set isn't a write-off.

My emachine desktop tower will not power on


the sound you are hearing or heard could have been power surging through a powersupply unit that just blew.. hopfully it did not effect any of the other hardware..to trouble shoot this you can do one of two things..1 disconnect the 20/24 pin powerconnector from the motherboard 2 disconnect the cpu power connector 3 disconnect the 6pin power connector from the graphics card if there is one some machines have onboard video chipsets if thats the case then no worries 4 disconnect the Harddrive power 5 jump the power supply to see if you get any power from it any questions on that go to youtube and type in how to jump a power supply... or option 2 is buy a new power supply make sure its 80plus certified and replace it...i know its a lot of work but i hope this has helped you

Your reasoning about the switch mode power supply being damaged is probably right.
Bear in mind that this power supply may not be the only thing that may be damaged in your computer.
You won't know for sure until you borrow a power supply and install it into your computer to see if it will work again.

Bad storm, lightening strike outside then TV went off and will not come back on.


I would start with your power supply. If you took a surge it is possible that you only blew a fuse. If it is a blown fuse, make sure you only use the same type fuse.

Got a 47 inch flat screen sanyo. tv will power on get a picture for about 10 sec and then turn off. transformer outside of house was struck by lightning


Sound like you had a power surge that has taken out the invertoer power supply capacitors...these are electrolytic capacitors that will be taken out by surges(it's a veryu common problem)..you can take the cover off the back and look for the power supply board(it will be the one with the ac line cord going to it...look at the cylindrical components on the board to see if they look bloated of have some fluid leaking out of them..this would indicate a bad capacitor...if you don't want to take the unit apart you can take to a shop and have them look at it...note: If you own your home and you have homeowners insurance..it should cover the tv if you had a close lightning strike...just a suggestion

Unplug it and then blow a hairdryer at the power supply for 3 minutes. Leave the lid on, just blow the hairdryer at it from the outside. Craziest trick I ever saw.

After that, turn off hibernation. And eventually, replace your power supply.

HP M1050Y - not powering up after power surge


The green light at back is probably the NIC or network interface card, which means the computer is receiving power. Just not enough apparently. Try changing the power cords from being plugged into the surge protector to being plugged dirctly into wall socket. When you do this take the ethernet cable out before turning it ON.
