Question about HP mx705 17" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Hp ms705 menu comes on without prompt

My monitor menu just comes on, I turn it off and it comes back on. Sometimes it comes on and dims to 1%. This happens sometimes every few seconds sometimes with minutes between. It did this a couple of months ago and I finally resolved the issue by restoring my computer to its factory state. This computer is 2 and a half years old and I don't need to replace it yet but I also don't want to have to restore the machine every couple of months. This is most annoying.

Re: hp ms705 menu comes on without prompt

Even my monitor HPM704 does the same thing from 12Mar08. I bought this monitor an year before. It looks like this batch of monitors have issues from factory itself. Plan to get support from customer care.

HP Monitor cycling through 'Quick View' menu options and menu buttons are unresponsive.

Your wiring may be causing "cross-talk". Separate the wires in back, so they do not touch. This should be an instant fix.

How do you dim monitor brightness

This can be done in the menu on the monitor. There should be a button that says menu. push that and sub menus will come up. There should be a choice for brightness. Most of the selections are then adjusted using the volume buttons Up or Down.

Blank screen, but has power

It is most likely a backlight that has burnt out or something else of the sort. You will want to call HP Support and explain to them of your troubles.

Check the buttons on your monitor for possible shorts. Sometimes pressing a sequence of buttons while turning the monitor on will lock the OSD.
