Question about HP Pavilion MX70 17" CRT Monitor

Blank monitior I have HP Pavilion Mx70. When I turn the computer on the light on the monitior turns green, the screen remains blank/black and after a few seconds the little green light turns yellow as if it is in sleep mode. I have all the reovery disc, but can not do anything until I can fix the problem with the monitior. Can you help me? Thanks, Traci66

Re: Blank monitior

I have the same problem. Do This: When you Switch-Off the Monitor, there should be a small Click/Zip sound a second after the screen goes blank. Lets Call this as "A". Solution 1: Switch "Off" the Monitor & then Turn it "On" after 'A'. Repeat this till you get correct picture. Solution 2: Switch "Off" the Monitor & then Turn it "On" (after 'A' ofcourse) while holding the (+) button on the Monitor. This also Resets the Monitor to Factory-Settings. Solution 3: Try rapidly switching between various combinations of the Desktop Resolution, Adapter Refresh Rate & Color Depth Settings. Solution 4: Give Sharp but Careful taps with Soft part of your palm on the sides & top of the monitor when it is "On" & Do Solution 1. Believe it or not, It Works. Nikhil David, Mumbai-India.

This is a easy one. It happened to me once. If this ever happens again, push and hold the power button until the light on it turns off then turn it on again. It should work.

Re: Blank monitior

There is probably some electronic malfunctions inside your monitor. Since I will not be able to actually check your monitor, the best solution for this is bring your monitor to a qualified TV/CRT technician in your area for proper diagnosis. He's the right expert and the second opinion to that kind of problem. Problems regarding inside the monitor are usually not fix-it-yourself kind of thing for non-expert like you compared to software problem, which can be mostly fix by yourself guided by an expert.

I have an hp pavilion a720n desktop with an hp pavilion mx70 monitor and windows xp home. There is a problem with the color displayed on the monitor. I see mainly black and white, but blue shows up fine....

First of all you can check the computer by connecting another monitor to it to see if the problem goes away...if so then the problem would be in the monitor. If not , then I would try to change the video grafics card in the computer(assuming you don't have built in video). If you have built in video on the mother board then you will either need to replace the motherboard or disable the onboard video and install a video card

Monitor won't come on right away

Sounds like the CRT is starting to go bad cause its taking longer and longer for it to boot up. CRT's aren't available now so a new monitor would be the only option.

Blank screen

This looks like a problem with the video card or the power supply to the monitor. Try connecting a different monitor and if you still face the same problem then probably you may need to have a look at your video card or its connection in motherboard

Self-Test Feature Check (STFC) Your monitor provides a self-test feature that allows you to check whether your monitor is functioning properly. If your monitor and computer are properly connected but the monitor screen remains dark, run the monitor self-test by performing the following steps:
  1. Turn off both your computer and the monitor.
  2. Unplug the video cable from the back of the computer. To ensure proper Self-Test operation, remove Analog (blue connector) cables from the back of computer.
  3. Turn on the monitor. The floating 'Dell - self-test Feature Check' dialog box should appear on-screen (against a black background) if the monitor cannot sense a video signal and is working correctly. While in self-test mode, the power LED remains green and the self-test pattern will scroll through the screen continually.
  4. Turn off your monitor and reconnect the video cable; then turn on both your computer and the monitor.
If your monitor screen remains blank after you use the previous procedure, check your video controller and computer system; your monitor is functioning properly.
