SOURCE: Hi we have a ctx monitor PV720A that stays on for

glenn659, possible cause is bad internal switch-mode-power-supply" failure or SMPS is detecting something wrong with lcd cold-cathode-fluorescent-tube backlighting circuit, (INVERTER) and it goes into SHUTDOWN mode to try and prevent a catastrophic failure from occuring. Glenn, visit youtube, search for video clips on LCD monitor disassembly and also also research BAD Capacitors or Swollen Capacitors and also the "WHY DO LCD MONITORS FAIL PREMATURELY" Certainly your's will be in the top two causes! Did you do the flashlight test with your monitor "on" and connected to a known good PC with the WIN-desktop screen showing. Even though screen is BLACK it might still show the desktop when you hold the light about 1" from screen. Some will, some won't depends on condition of the power supply. In any case get back to me with your plan of action you intend to take after viewing YOUTUBE stuff. Bye for now. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@aol.com

Faulty monitor ctx pv720a. The screen has the


Try another cable, or check the plug for bent pins. If they are all good, check that the monitor is set for VGA input (if it supports VGA and DVI) as it may be looking for a different input. Then replace the monitor. It's not common, but video processing circuitry can sometimes fail, and yours may have. New 17-inch LCD monitors are quite inexpensive now, so it would probably be more economical to replace this one than to try repairing it.

This is what inverter board looks like:

Look for bad caps also, more likely to need new inverter board, warning, you can have bad lamp assembly also.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses; poor solder joints, 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.

Black line over entire width of ctx monitor screen 1mm depth in mid screen.


You need a new screen surface...you can order one from any reputable dealer....just take your monitor apart and unattach all of the components and replace the screen area with the appropriate part. You are not specifying whether or not it's an LCD or a CRT...if it's a CRT just go buy a new one :) if it's an LCD you can replace the screen for 100 dollars or so.

CTX P772 17" LCD Monitor Problem


This is caused by sending a video signal to the screen at a refresh rate higher than 60hz. A LCD Doesn't refresh the image by scanning from top to bottom like a traditional CRT or picture tube. They are hard set to 60hz and can not understand anything else. Setting it to anything else will cause it to not display a video signal, picture tearing (little blocks with horizontal movement), Offset video or convergents issues (colors appear offset giving it the 3d movie look with out glasses on)

To fix it you need to go into your operating systems display settings and pick out a LCD monitor with a refresh rate of 60hz

Hope that helps
