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.

In my View sonic CRT monitor E71f 17",there is a curve appearing on the upper side of the screen and there is some space between the display and the screen, please help. thanks


It's time to responsibly recycle your old CRT monitor, and spend about $100 to buy a new 17" or 19" LCD screen, rather than spending any money at a qualified TV/video technician, trying to trouble-shoot the problem.

Screen curves in on the sides, what is the cause?


This effect is known as "pin cushion". There is an adjustment for it on the front of your monitor. Follow your monitor guide for instructions on accessing the correct buttons to make the adjustments.

Screen shrunk


Try using the 'degauss' option of your monitor. It should be in the on screen menu, or possibly a reserved button for it. If not, you may have the options in your menu for the monitor to adjust the shape of the screen manually, you'll just have to go through the menues carefully using the various buttons on your monitor. If nothing fixes it, I would just replace the unit, as repairing it would likely cost more than buying a new one.

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.
