Question about Compaq fs740 17" CRT Monitor

Monitor screen problem

I have a compaq fs740. While I'm working on the computer the entire screen will turn entirely orange or blue with slightly slanted lines. I can slightly see my information stil in the background. I have to wait for the screen to turn back to normal which may take a few minutes or a few hours.

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.

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.
