Question about HP Pavilion M70 17" CRT Monitor
Started noticing the problem in Subject. Opened the Monitor Cover & found, if I lift up and hold the Circuit Board corner near the Screen Focus / Brightness Adj. control, the display is back to normal. I suspect a Dry solder / Broken Solder contact. Do not exactly know which point to re-solder. If anyone know which point(s) to re-solder it would be great. Otherwise I need to re-solder all the contacts in that corner/area of the Circuit board.
Although it's difficult to pinpoint which solder point(s) are the cause of a problem of this nature, the use of a magnifying glass will help you determine which solder point(s) look "irregular" compared to the other ones. Look for cracks or pits across the solder point and re-solder once found. Sometimes a hairline of solder is shorting out two points and again is might not be possible possible to see without magnification. If you don't notice any irregular solder points, a component could be causing the problem (like a very dirty/oxidized potentiometer or a cracked discrete / SMD). Let me know if this helps.
