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.

Monitor only works at start up. then I must use optional monitor. occasionaly monitor will work for a short time


You may need to change the resolution on the screen, in windows, you may find the "Display Options" under "Control Panel", usually this problems is caused by the computer having a hight resolution than the supported by the monitor, for your specific monitor the available resolutions are:
Support of video modes up to 1280 x 1024 at a 75 Hz refresh rate from the manual at:
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00264775.pdf
That means you have to chose a resolution lower than 1280 x 1024 and a frequency lower than 75 Hz. Anything higher than that on the resolution or frequency will cause the monitor to display a "Out of Sync" message and turn off shortly thereafter.
Thanks !!!

My HP Pavillion M70 monitor is saying "video cable connected?" when I try to use the monitor. I am trying to output my laptop to the monitor because my laptop screen is wearing out, but I cannot get it to...


go into the BIOS settings and tell it to use the LCD/Monitor as a display.

or

press fn key+(F5 or F7 or F8) 1x or 2x or 3x.....

Fn key combination. The Fn key is located at the lower left of the keyboard, normally between the CTRL and the ALT key. Toshiba uses Fn-F5 to toggle between the laptop LCD and an external display. IBM or Lenovo uses FN-F7, Acer varies with the model, using Fn-F5, Fn-F3, Fn-F8, Sony Fn-F7, Dell Fn-F8, HP or Compaq, Fn-F4. There are variations with the age of the laptop and not all manufacturers have standardized on a key combo across the whole range, but you can usually figure it out from the little graphics on the function keys that line the top of the keyboard.

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

HP MX 75 CRT monitor just quit working. No light on the on button.


...strictly as, at at best. a long shot: according to a post I just read somewhere online about this HP MX 75, pressing AND HOLDING the + button on the monitor front and at the same time turning the monitor on and off repeatedly, may fix problems with this monitor.
