Was working on my Pavilion, and the w1907 monitor just blacked out. I brought it to the HP service center and after a few days, they told me the monitor cannot be repaired. I set up the PC about more than half a year ago after buying it for a year plus. And I must have used the PC for less than 50 times, and was shocked when the monitior just blacked out.
I checked the revision code of the monitor, which is Rev STM 002, which means that it is most likely early revision, hence the monitor could be build during the "PP" (Prototype Phase) or early "MR" (Manafacturing Release). Could this mean that this is a case of manufacturing defect or parts defect? Monitors usually do not breakdown within 2-3 years of constant use. In my case, I just started using it for less than a year and a very light user (since I normally work on a notebook).
It is frustrating after spending >$1650 and the monitor cost $399, then told that I have to buy another monitor for about $300. Does anyone know if other users of w1907 have similar experiences?

error message on w1907 when hooking up to a Macintosh PowerPc G5. every time i plug the screen into the computer it tells me to change the settings to 1440x900 at 60Hz... my computer doesn't even have this option. the weird thing is that behind the error message on the monitor the quality looks great. all i want to do is get rid of the error message without changing the settings... i was thinking that a combination of the monitors buttons might do the trick, i just can't figure it out... anyone got any bright ideas?????

Mine does the same thing. Usually when swiching from normal view to when I open a game. Sometime it just flicks blank and comes back. Othertimes I have to wait. I was turning the monitor off and on plus pressing the Menu button. Now I just shut it off and either wait 3 to 5 minutes or walk away for a little while and then turn it back on. It then comes back on OK.
I believe it's something to do with the video input. It tries to go to digital.
I'm going to keep looking for an answer to this problem. I'm sure more people have this issue and the experts at HP SHOULD have a way to fix the problem.

its interesting that i hear this on the 19 inch monitor. i have a w2207h monitor i got as a gift a couple weeks ago from my daughter and have had nothing but troubles it it flickering and the screen disappearing while running in extended desktop mode. the original laptop the monitor was connected to was a toshiba dual core, decent machine. the following things i have done to narrow down the problem.
hooked up the monitor to an HP pavilion dv6300. 2 gig mem and a dual core box as well. same results... flicker, then will go to half screen and flicker.
swapped out the vga cable that came with the monitor and tried on both laptops. same results
the one thing i did notice was that it seemed to start to flicker and go bad was at about the same time my hard disk was in use. if my drive wasnt doing anything, my monitor was stable. seems like it may be an rfi issue.
this monitor is 2 weeks new and it sucks. it is extremely faulty and would not recommend it to anyone until they get the bugs out.
