Question about Hitachi SuperScan Elite 802 21" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Bright,thin line, in the middle of the screen, then...

Hello; First of all I understand that this CRT Monitor is 1998 technogoly!?!

I turn on the monitor, I hear a 'cracklin' sound, a lot like static electricty.

The screen only shows a bright, thin line, all the way across the middle, and then the thin line turns to a small dot, and the monitor goes blank!!!

Thanks, Don ( )

    Abypaulose; Thanks for your reply, and your solution to my CRT problem.

    This monitor will NOT turn on (screen is now completly blank)!

    My local repair shop wants $150.00 to repair this problem...

    I can purchase a NEW 19" LCD monitor for $139.99 (or a refurbished 22" or $189.99) !

    Perhaps, I should wait til AFTER Christmas before I make a decision (wanting too take advantage of all of those "after-Christmas-specials") !

    Thanks again...Don_D

1. I turn on the monitor, I hear a 'cracklin' sound
Reply: In a CRT Monitor there is a component called EHT which generates High voltage which is connected to the anode of the CRT, If there is any leakage due to moisture can cause this crackiling sound, You need to clean this high tension wire or replace the EHT ( CAUTION : BE AWARE OF HIGH VOLTAGES )

2. The screen only shows a bright, thin line.
Reply: The vertical Drive section of the monitor is faulty.

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.

CRT Monitor Displays only a thin bright horizontal line

Vertical IC loose connection. Best is to reflux it or resolder. It is in internal circuitry inside the monitor commonly an upside single line IC.

And its a minor repair only. But I recommend it to be serviced by a qualified technician. Inside it are plenty of nasty voltages. It might caught 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!
