It will cost $50 to $100 to trouble-shoot and repair any 15-inch monitor.

It will cost $20 to $40 to purchase a "pre-owned" 15-inch LCD monitor.

If will cost $50 to $100 to buy a new 17-inch LCD monitor.

Your money; your choice.

Compaq fs740 text too faint and fuzzy to read well

Firstly you need to switch to the monitor's optimal resolution of 1024x768 @ 85Hz and before anyone posts anything about resolution 1024x768 @ 85Hz is the optimum not the maximum. To change to this resolution: Assuming you are using Windows XP click with the right mouse button an an empty part of the desktop and select Properties (or click Start, then click Control Panel then click Display), on the Settings tab, under Screen resolution, drag the slider bar until it says 1024x768 and then click Apply. Also in Display settings you'll find an advanced button, in the advanced panel you'll see the option to adjust the refresh rate, try adjusting this to 85Hz. Now press the Menu Button on the front of the monitor and press + of - until you see an option called "Degauss" and press the select button on the front of the monitor, your screen will do a disturbing jump and flicker accompanied by a metallic thud, this is normal. If this doesn't help message back.

I want cmpaq 5500 service manual plese help me

If you are looking for a repair manual for your Compaq MV 5500 CRT Monitor, you will most likely not find one as CRT's are not designed to be serviced by the average user. Servicing a CRT is actually very dangerous work due to the high voltage and current the monitor can store.
However, if you were just looking for a user guide manual, I found one for you here: Click Here.
Hope this helps. If it does, please accept and rate the solution! Contact me with any more questions you may have. Thanks for using FixYa!

It is broken. Replace it.

If you look online for a "previously-owned" 15-inch LCD monitor, expect to pay $20 to $30.

If you go to any "big-box" electronics store, you can buy a 19-inch LCD monitor for under $100.

Either way, it's much less expensive to REPLACE it
than it would be for a professional TV/video technician to try to trouble-shoot and REPAIR it.

I'm having problems locating a manual. Compaq doesn't seem to support the model anymore. Reading a review online, It almost looks like Compaq had an Application control this instead of practical buttons on the front. Here's the review I read that talked about it ->
Hope this helps a bit! Sorry I don't have much else, I've been digging for a few days now to find more.
