Question about HP Compaq FS7600 17" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Problem with monitor

My CRT monitor's display is curved in on the sides, and the menu options for correcting this are not responding. Furthermore, the width of my display is too wide, and that menu option is not responding as well. Other menu options are working, however.

Anybody have any ideas on what the cause of this problem is and how I may be able to fix it?

Hi,

Your post/description indicates a "pincushion" problem; the width problem is as you have stated.

There are two (2) possible reason for these problems:
1. component failure in the horizontal section of the monitor. These components could either be a diode, a capacitor or a resistor. In some cases there are trimpots in the PCB that can be adjusted to correct these problems;
2. component/connection failure in the controller section.

Of the two, I tend to suspect #1 as highly likely the case. Repairs such as this would require that you be familiar and comfortable working with electronic components and circuitry, the use of a DVM and a soldering iron. Should this be not to your liking, your next best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Hello
Select reset option by monitor menu, set it to default first. Then try to adjust the width and height of the screen. If this does not help you, try other resolutions set by the system.

To adjust the display settings:

The current display settings appear across the top of the main menu.

2. Rotate the flywheel to highlight an option. The name of the

3. Press the flywheel control to select the highlighted option, then
rotate the flywheel to adjust it.

Some options can only be enabled or disabled. There are also some
options that contain additional menus.

4. Repeat Steps 2 and 3 until you have made all your changes.

5. Rotate the flywheel control until Exit is highlighted, then press
it to exit the OSD control system.

Manager menu.

Vertical pinch on left hand side of crt


You mean the picture on the left side is curved out? Or is it restricted to the very top and very bottom?
If you have the curve problem, look in the menu and see if there is a pincushion control and a pin cushion balance. Adjust the balance until both sides curve the same, then adjust the pin cushion control to remove the curve.
If you are only having the problem in the corners, look in the menu for a corner correction control and play around with it to see if it corrects your problem. If the monitor has no OSD (on-screen-display), then it may be too old to have these controls. You may have to open the unit and see if there are any physical adjustments (little potientiometers). You might want to leave this to someone who knows what they are doing since the high voltage circuit can have 25-35 kV. Considering the price of CRT monitors, you might be able to find a new one for under $50.
