Question about HP Pavilion MX75 17" CRT Monitor
My monitor just quit working onemorning when I moved my mouse. My cord is good. No display whatsoever. I can hear a click when the cord is connected and disconnected. No power light though. The switch seems to have no power coming to it. It is four years old. It is awfully coincidental that it just decided to quit working. I am fair at schematics, etc. but cannot find anything on my monitor, even troubleshooting it. It has not been abused or anything of the sort. My son had the exact same thing and his did the exact same thing exact instead of just turning it on one morning, he turned off a breaker switch and then back on not knowing it affected his monitor. Everyone says throw it away, but it is a good monitor. I love it, however now it is not working. any help or advice? I have been told it is repairable, but the cost is too high for a repairman to do it and he also advised to throw it away and get an locd flat screen and update. I really didn't want to at this time. Please help. Anyone!
...strictly as, at at best. a long shot: according to a post I just read somewhere online about this HP MX 75, pressing AND HOLDING the + button on the monitor front and at the same time turning the monitor on and off repeatedly, may fix problems with this monitor.

Tips for a great answer:
When you plug in the power cord is there any lights
whatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of the
When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.
Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the laptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and take note of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).
Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoever when you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you was operating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cord is bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the power cord is bad.
Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in and hit the power button to see if it boots.
Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.
Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.
