Question about Gateway EV 700 17" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

On turn on of the EV 700 Monitor only a horizontal line is seen across the screen. Seems as if the vertical scan or oscillator has stopped working ??

Check the pins on the connector cable. make sure that not one of them is bent. If it is, it could cause the problem as on of the signals is not there. You can get some needle nose pliers (thin ones) and carefully bend (form) the pin back straight. Once straight, carefully insert the connector back in. Then, pull it out to make sure it did go in and not get bent again.

If the cable is good on both ends, (you can ohm them out with an ohm meter), make sure all is ok on the computer end. (drivers, video card, software). If it is, then pitch it and get an LCD. You don't know what you are missing. Better yet, don't break a sweat. Go and buy an in expensive LCD screen. you'll be glad you did. Besides, the EV700 is now old, full of dust, lint, cooties, etc.

How to solve horizontal lines on a CRT TV monitor and what could be the possible courses for it


Monitor horizontal lines problems usually caused by a defective vertical output/driver ic. A missing supply voltage to the vertical output ic may caused similar faults which is one horizontal line across the display. Dry joints and missing vertical output pulse from vertical oscillator ic also could contribute the same symptom. If you discovered that the protection resistor (usually from 1 to 4.7 ohm) open circuit or burnt, then replacing it won't solve the problem. The resistor burnt or open circuit was due to a short in the vertical output ic. Thus you have to replace the vertical output ic and the burnt resistor together before you switch on the monitor.

TV has a great picture but wont "hold it". Keeps going to a single flat horizontal line across the middle of the screen. Tapping on side of TV used to bring it back but now, nothing. Just a line.


Vertical scan output section circuit fault. Absence of vertical scan causes the single horizontal line on screen. Horizontal scan output section is OK. Contact any service technician to troubleshoot the vertical scan output section circuit. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.Surf the site with patience.http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Horizontal line fault to CRT based TVs are given.

My crt acer ac512 monitar only centre line view,c"not full view why?


there are several reasons why picture of crt monitors did not display good picture. if your monitor had horizontal line at the center of the screen?...the faulty is in the vertical deflection, check the vertical oscillator also the fusible resistors & capacitors around that section. if there had vertical line at the center of the screen?..check the horizontal deflection, horizontal output transistor also check the YOKE.

When I turn it on there is just a horizenal line. This is on a Mitsubishi cs 35 ax 1 35" from 1992


hi there, it seems you have problem with your VERTICAL IC, this is similar to all CRT I have repaired. horizontal lines in the middle huh! well the picture is deflected in the center of the screen. it shows your TV is oscillating. means it is good. the problem is that you cannot adjust the picture to occupy the whole monitor. By replacing the Vertical IC it will remedy the picture to view widely. the vertical IC has these many 8-10 pins and mounted on heat sink. Usually mine is serial with LA 7837. good luck on your troubleshooting, hope this help, please rate and vote.

My EV 700 screen picture is condenced has one bright clear line in middle screen and two more lines faded,space in between lines


Sounds like a CRT problem but to be sure, hook up another monitor to the computer and if you get the same exact lines then you know its a problem with the video card, if the lines go away then you know its a problem with the monitor.

Ps 27123 have sound, tuning etc only small horizontal color band


Hello bdedrick708,

If what you are trying to say is that you have a 1/4 inch horizontal line across your screen, this means that something in your vertical deflection circuit has failed. This could be the vertical oscillator, the vertical output processor, the vertical coupling capacitor, or the vertical section of the yoke transformer.

If what you are talking about is a vertical line from top to bottom then you are possibly talking about a failed horizontal section of the yoke transformer.

Why so little about the horizontal section of the yoke? That is because if the horizontal section fails completely then you would lose high voltage and no line would be present because you would not have raster (screen light).

In any even check the yoke transformer first. Then work back from there.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Tv not working


this symptom, sometimes called the tube light effect, it is characterised by a bright thin horizontal line across the middle of the screen. this symptom is caused by a breakdown in the vertical deflection circuit. hence maybe the trouble maybe in the vertical oscillator, amplifier or output circuits. but if all i have said is not clear to you, better bring it to a qualified tv technician. good luck!

A thin horizontal line across the screen


I know I have seen thin lines in the past on older CRT monitors, these are usually wires which support the aperture grill. LCD is just a panel so this must be something different. What color is the line? It is probably an error in the scanning process.

Wavy Vertical Line


you have AC ripple getting into your horizontal output. you have a power supply problem in the monitor. take it to get it fixed.
