Question about HP Pavilion MX75 17" CRT Monitor
Is there a way to correct this?
A flat line in the picture is caused by a broken yolk or bad fly back transformer. This is a expensive fix. I would think that purchasing a new one would be several hundreds cheaper.
A mx 75 is a pretty old monitor. If you must have a crt (graphic artists or print artists do usually since they produce mostly correct color) You can pick up a new one from many of the local office supply stores or walmarts for under 100$ in the 17 inch range. I would however suggest a LCD for its power saving ability though. You would be suprised how much power those old crts use.
Sorry I couldn't be a better new bringer

The life expectancy is about 5 years. You can fix it, but it's not worth trying to track down the power board for a crt, it's going to cost you more than a new monitor. There are flat panels for under a hundred dollars now, you will save that on electricty over a two year period. Although some folks just like them better than lcd's that is no longer an issue, with the faster resolutions in the past few years you will be better off going for a new lcd. HP's website is the most likelly place to obtain service for your monitor, but I just got an email from Dell this morning and you can get a new 19 inch for about a hundred dollars from their reurbished shop if you really want to save some money, and a 24 was only around $200.
