Question about TTX Medallion Series -8570 (White) 15 in.CRT Conventional Monitor

1 Answer

Grey Squares on the monitor

Hello, I am trying to use a TTX 17 inch CRT monitor (not sure which model, doesn't say anywhere, it's basically a discarded monitor from some office) along with my regular monitor (ViewSonic E90f+), in dual-view mode. I have a GE force 6600 with all the latest drivers, and my computer is an AMD Athlon 64 x2, also with all the latest drivers. my motherboard is an asus A8E-N with the latest bios. I don't know why it doesn't work because I have tried the dual-view feature with at least 3 other CRT monitors and it worked *perfectly*, at 1280x1024 resolution with 75 hz refresh. But now the problem is this: the monitor turns on, but will only display a bunch of grey squares. Then it turns off, and back on, with more grey squares but at different resolution. And it just keeps on doing that, and simply never reacts to anything I try to do from my computer, as if it's just not plugged in. When I unplug it from the computer, however, the only difference is that the squares turn white. My Nvidia property menu detects this monitor as being "TTX Digital Display" but as I said, seems to have no way to affect it in any fashion whatsoever. The buttons on this TTX crt don't do anything either, believe me, I have tried all of them, and I also tried keeping them pressed for 15 seconds each and stuff like that but nothing happened at all. i also went on the TTX website and downloaded the drivers that they have there, and installed them, but that also didn't change anything at all. So there you go, I'm completely at a loss. Should I just look for another CRT to dual-view with?

Re: Grey Squares on the monitor

Try reducing the resolution, Since the CRT you are referring to is old monitor, it might not support high resolution.

Hi, My DELL 17' CRT Monitor is not getting power suppply. Please help me out for the same. Kart.

Spend $50 (or $100) and buy a used (or new) 17-inch LCD monitor, rather than "investing" $50 to $75 to pay a TV/video technician to *TRY* to fix your CRT monitor.

17-inch CRT?

Ask your friends -- one of them probably has a "surplus" 17-inch CRT that they will _love_ to give-away to you, to replace yours.

Or, look on CRAIGS LIST for a used 17" LCD screen, for $30 to $40.

What component failed in my 17"CRT 753s model samsung moniter?


Your vertical deflector circuit is going out. This is really not economical to repair, the chip alone is $12-15 plus if you have any other parts in the circuit going out plus labor. You can pickup 17" CRT monitors for less than $15 from goodwill or craigslist.

Sorry to say but I think its time to retire your 753s

I poked around the website for you, and found the following blurb:

"A. All models manufactured after 1999 are “plug and play” compliant, therefore “plug and play” drivers supplied with your specific system will work the same as the “TTX.inf” driver found on our website.

If so, here is the link to their "TTX.inf" driver.

Now, a closer look on that page said "CRT Monitor", and that may not be what you have. I did stumble across another of their pages talking about Touchscreen Manuals and drivers. Find that here:

This page says to match the last two numbers of the product ID on the back of the unit to their chart of drivers and manuals.
Hope that helps!

Princeton CD770MCN 17 driver and or setup program

My only suggestion: responsibly recycle that 17-inch CRT, and buy a used 17-inch LCD; around here, the local "government surplus" store is selling 3-year-old 17-inch LCDs for $50, plus taxes.

If it was a "plug-and-play" monitor, then there was _NO_ need for any "drivers" at all, because the monitor would identify which combinations of horizontal/vertical pixels and refresh-rates that it would support.
