Problems with HP Monitors?

It would appear that HP has some problems in pictures; specifically with displaying them. Apparently, the HP Pavilion F1703 monitor has a bad habit of going black at about the end of the warranty period. The problem appears to be related to bad solder joints on the inverter board that powers the backlight for the display, as several people have reported successful repairs by redoing the solder joints. If you have one of these monitors, you should be aware of this. In addition, there appears to be some effort to get a Class Action lawsuit against HP going. You can read more at the CNet Reviews Peripheral Forum.

Do you have one of these monitors? If so, tell us about your experience.

hp pavilion f1703

Well it sounds like I'm not alone. My monitor is blacking out as well. I'm glad I saw your article before I bought an other one. How do you get the case off so as to redo the solder joints?

Very carefully! Beyond that try to find detailed instructions!

You are the man, I'd feel a lot better if I had one of these monitors, thank you, Gizmo!
