Re: the video camera

Is it built into the monitor? If so, then there should be a USB port on the back/bottom of it or something of the sort. Are you telling me that you don't know how to connect it physically to the internet, or that you don't know how to connect it software-wise?

Inherited Compaq FS740 but after hooking up monitor will show green for a short time and then color is yellow? Is it dead? Has set up for a while

Check the pins on the cables. Single color presentation but clear picture indicates the pin for a particular color is borken on teh cable. Remember Red Green and Blue are mixed to make other colors. If you have predominantly one color then its due to cable not haveing all pins inserted properly or damaged.

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.

WhenI turn my monitor on, a screen appears saying VGA input - no signal & DVI input - no siganl & then it goes to sleep

Do you have multiple Video cards installed in your computer?

Check the monitor on another computer to verify the Monitor works and so does the cable.

If Monitor works, cable works, and you have 1 video output from your computer, then your Video card is probably no good.

Monitor is tilted forward and wont tip back

it will tilt back, just make sure the stand is in the forward most position and not turned and hold the screen at top and push while at the same time pull at the bottom, it will be quite stiff.

Compaq monitor

OK your monitor is failing in the Horizontal circuitry.... OR the PSU is failing to supply the correct Voltages. Either way it is probably going to fail completely soon. With monitors so cheap now, here in NZ they are about NZ$20.00 - $50.00, repair isn't adviseable to do so, it would make more sense to put the Repair monies into a NEW screen... maybe time for an LCD?

Concave screen problem also

OK All these Compaq's have a Power Supply problem, or a Horizontal Voltage problem.. meaning they are on the way out. The SMPSU's in these units often fail along with the Horizontal Drive Circuitry. I think it is time for a new one? Repair of such a unint would barely be "Ecconomical" IMHO.
