Question about NEC MultiSync 77F 17 in.CRT Conventional Monitor

NEC 77F CRT monitor - displays alternating black \ white crosses

When the monitor is powered on, it shows two perpendicular white lines that intersect the center of the screen on a black background. After 2 - 3 seconds, it shows black lines on a white background. It alternates from one to the other continuously, and I can't get it to do anything else (OSD controls make no difference.) NEC has a monitor troubleshooting guide, but I haven't been able to access it. I'm hoping the CRT is still good and that I can keep the monitor out of the landfill - what do you think's wrong with it?

Sounds like its stuck in test mode. Make sure that none of the buttons are stuck in place and does it make any noise while its turned on?

Usually you just pry them apart. The cracking sounds and the amount of force necessary to do this is sometimes unnerving to the inexperienced.

Getting black horizontal lines across the screen. It started off as an intermittent problem, now occurring more often. I changed the video card and the power supply tests fine and I changed the refresh...

I would test the cable, use it on a different monitor or try a different cable. That is the only other thing to check, otherwise it definitely is the monitor.

If you're referring to the taskbar that's usually on the bottom of the desktop, click on the taskbar and drag it to the bottom. Then right click on the taskbar and check "Lock the taskbar". This should solve your problem. All the best.

Nec 700 crt

Not a solution at all, but I'll post that I have a NEC MultiSync FE700 monitor that I purchased back in 2001, and have I been using the monitor since that time. Lately the monitor has been showing signs of 'acting up'. I read on the Internet that CRT monitors generally have a working life of about six years. It may be, depending on years of use, that the monitors are just reaching the end of their life.

Mitsubishi diamondpro 930sb flickering

I have had the same problem with my 991sb and most recently my 930sb. The first was replaced at NEC's expense however on this second one i'm out of luck. I think its a problem with its power inverter. It may be repairable by a tv repair place. I'll be looking into it and let you guys know.
