Question about Dell Ultra Scan 17TX - 17" SVGA Color Monitor (15.9" Viewable), 1280x D1726T-HS-07

1 Answer

Dell Trinitron Ultra Scan Monitors

Simple question. I've been on the phone with Dell (duh-ell) now for 70 minutes and am on hold for the 5th person to talk to. I have 2 monitors. Both monitors are Dell Trinitron Ultra Scan. One model is the P780. The other model is a 17 TX (D1726T-HS). I want use a converter to interface to these monitors which will allow me to view a surveillance camera in color, for better visibility instead of black & white. The converter specifies that it is for use with a VGA monitor. Can you tell me if either, neither, or both are VGA format?

Yes as long as your monitors have the standard 15 pin Mini D-sub connector (which they do) then you should have no problems viewing a composite input through your converters.

How to unlock the On Screen Display (OSD) when it comes up locked.

This is a simple fix that Dell did not readily have on tech support.  This got me free lifetime phone support for my monitor and computer.  To unlock the OSD, hold in the "menu" button for 15 seconds and that will unlock the OSD.  It is that simple. Enjoy this simple solution if you ever need it.

What flatscreen monitor is OK to substitute for sanpo alphascan 520?

Hi. Almost all the crt type monitors should work, it's flat screen monitors that seem to give computers problems with aspect ratios, and resolution settings.

I personally use an NEC AccuSync 70.
It might not be the newest monitor in the world, but the colors are crisp, clear, and bright.
And It allows a setting of 1024x768@85 hz refresh rate, which works great for my games.

As far as flat screens, I would probably go with an Acer, or a Dell monitor, as these two companies seem to have better quality from their monitors than most other manufacturers.

I hope this helps you out!

My dell monitor ultra 2000 goes blank after about 3 minutes then i turn it off and on again. the picture will show but have to keep resetting it. is it repairable?

Everything is repairable but CRT monitors are not worth repairing. Just about any thrift store or recycling center will have a load of them and most of those places won't even take them any more so it's real easy to find a free one.

My dell ultra sharp 1702 monitor blinks for quite awhile before starting up when I turn it on...?

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, 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 Dell monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Blurry resolution and screen smear until it has been running for several minutes

Check the video card first, if you have another vidoe card try it. If that does not shore up the problem the monitor would be a issue, and now a day monitors are dirt cheap even for the LCD monitors so I would look into buying on of those if your inclined to do so.
