Try replacing the large electrolytic capacitors on the power supply board (should be 4-6 capacitors for 5 and 12v rails). This works in most cases.

I have a Dell 1704 FPVt monitor I use it in conjunction with an touch board with a monitor split cable. when I plug the team board in the dell monitor goes blank. It doesn't do this with the old m


Isolate the problem per above. Eliminate the monitor, split cable and software settings so that each, individually work. Then eliminate team board - do you have a spare?
It could mean sharing the monitor signal means weakens it so that one can display and the other does not work. Prove it with a different source computer. Don't know if buffer devices exist or how to increase input sensitivity.

My LG 700E crt monitor has stop functining to control brightness and contrast ,Any other way to increase or decrease brightness and contrast. pls let me know thanks


It's time to RESPONSIBLY RECYCLE any 17-inch CRT monitor, and buy a LCD monitor;
used LCD monitors can be purchased for under $50.

It would cost you over $50 to take the CRT to a TV/Video repair shop, for trouble-shooting and repair.

I have a black spot on my crt samsung monitor screen


I know some people still prefer old CRT monitors over more modern LCD monitors even today. Unfortunately Cathode Ray Tubes or CRTs aren't serviceable since they are a factory vacuum sealed unit and this probably why no-one has replied. The black dot is probably a burn mark on the inside of the CRT if it's always there. When there's a problem with the CRT itself there's nothing one can do except replace the unit and it's not worth changing the tube as it will cost much more than the monitor is worth and anyway I'd be very surprised if they even bother making these old parts any more. One can buy 17" CRT monitors as cheap as 10 pounds and larger CRT monitors for a bit more at recycling businesses like Speedie Computers near Birmingham in the UK, so if you you still want to use an old CRT monitor, replacing the whole unit is certainly the best option. There's currently still an excess of old CRT monitors that need recycling after being replaced by newer LCD monitors and recycling companies like Speedie often have literally pallet loads piled up high and they'll be only too glad to let you take one or more off their hands for next to nothing. It's better if you can find somewhere local to yourself rather than purchasing online if at all possible or you'll probably end up paying more in postage than the cost of a replacement used CRT monitor because they're fragile, heavy and bulky to transport.

This is a common problem across many monitors, unfortunately. The problem stems from one of two things, typically.

Itis either the Power Inverter board (Inverter Mirage Electronics AD-1700Rev:F 200-000-170DTL1 VERSION:A) or a weak or dying backlight.

Ifyour monitor comes on for a few seconds then you can test the backlight byusing the controls to get into the backlight brightnes settings on theOSD and turning it WAY down.

If that doesn't work or if it won't come on at all then it islikely bad capacitors on the Power board mentioned above. If you feeladventurous and know how to solder then you might be able to fix thisyourself. You need to be careful however because you are dealing withhigh voltage in there and capacitors CAN hold a charge long after youhave unplugged the unit. You can read more about this power board aswell as how to replace the bad caps HERE.

Ifthat's not for you then I would recommend taking it to a local TV shopfor them to fix. The parts shouldn't be more than $20, but labor can beexpensive.

Blank sceen


No, because it sounds like the backlight has blown. These LCD monitors utilize a backlight, just like the florecent bulbs we see in office buildings. Alot smaller! These things can be repaired, but by the time you figure out how and when you track down the bulbs you would have purchased a new for all of that time. But they can be repaired!

Check signal message when data cable unplugged. blank screen when data cable plugged


This problem is most likely to be caused by a bent or broken pin on the CRT video cable at the VGA connector, OR, this could also be caused by a damaged VGA connector on the back of the laptop. If neither VGA connector is at fault, the problem could be caused a damaged (kinked) CRT data cable, or internal damage to the VGA connector on the back of the laptop, though I suspect the problem is more likely to be external, and you probably won't have to disassemble the laptop to locate the culprit...
