Question about 3M MicroTouch 17" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Microtouch CRT Monitor has no picture

We have a Microtouch CRT Monitor (part #11-1541-78N). Unfortunately, the screen does not have a picture any more. We are looking for a replacement monitor. Per 3M, we will need a similar or same CRT monitor, in our application, in order to solve the problem. The reasoning behind this is the monitor drives a printing press. It would appear that the drivers for the monitor are written into the software that runs the press. Therefore, upgrading the monitor will be a problem because we would need to install new drivers. These old CRT models have been discontinued since 2006. Any suggestions on how to alleviate this problem (find a monitor or fix the present one - keep in mind we have searched the internet widely - most people who say they have a monitor on-line find out they do not in reality.)

    We have tried another monitor - it works fine - but it's not microtouch and we can't get a cursor because there are no drivers for a mouse

Did you set ur resolution screen setting higher than 1024 in ur computer panel resosulion setting?Yes than that is ur problems right there.CRT monitors modes are based on old technologies ,CRT monitors can't go up more than 1024 resolution setting.Setting resolution more than 1024 resolution for CRT models monitors will have thesse causes.The screen resolution on the screen will shrink and get smaller or will not have video resolution on the CRT monitors screens at all.Only LCD or LED monitors models can support and go higher than 1024 resolution setting has none of these causes.Time to upgrade for a new monitors technologies like LCD or LED monitors models.

Unfortunately, this is not a fixable problem. Samsung CRT monitors are well known for losing color; they have defective cathode ray tubes. I recommend that you buy an lcd screen. sorry if that wasn't what you wanted to hear! don't forget to rate

No picture on screen

Try connecting the CRT to a different (desktop or laptop) computer, to confirm that the CRT is still working.

Try connecting a different CRT (or LCD) monitor to your computer, to confirm that your computer is sending video-output.

If possible, try a different "data" cable between the computer and the CRT.

I cannot adjust anymore the parameters of the monitor from the 4 keys from the front panel and my brightness is extremely low. What can be done? Regards, DP

Unfortunately it sounds like the crt or picture tube is failing. Even though some can be rejuvenated it will be costly getting crt replaced or rejuvenated.

Screen is red

jmeek: unfortunately there's not much you can do about this one. it's either the red gun in the crt has shorted, because of impurity build-up, or the driver for the red gun is shorted. either way it's repair or throw away time. tv repair shops used to carry a picture tube reconditioner that would zap the color guns in the crt to burn-off the shorts. it's doubtful they would have a socket that would fit your crt, but they might. they could possibly find a replacement for the driver if it's defective. but given the low cost of lcd's, that's i would be going. be sure to recycle the monitor correctly. please don't just toss it in a dumpster. there are computer part recycler's thru-out most of the US.

Touch Screen Montior

Do have the 3M driver? If not you can go to their web sight and down load it. You'll need to know what touch card you have, Microtouch or Dynapro. The monitor will be marked hopefully or you could call tech support. Just google 3m touch screen drivers.

Many screens on one monitor!

Your monitor is malfunctioning and requires servicing. Unfortunately there is no software solution, and no monitor adjustment buttons will control this problem. Due to the high cost of replacement parts and service technicians, it may be more cost effective to buy a new LCD monitor. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news :(
