Question about Compaq V700 17" CRT Monitor

2 Answers

Dead Monitor Hi, I bought my parents an HP computer for Christmas and now, only 7 months later, the monitor stopped working. w1907 monitor. I've read some comments on here but don't understand what the solutions are saying. I don't know anything about inverters etc. Can a monitor be fixed or replaced since it's only 7 months old? I think that's an extremely short lifespan for a monitor, especially since it's used only a few times a week for short times. Thank you the monitor is dead

Hello, welcome to Fixya!

Your monitor is having a power fault because it is not switching on. The monitor might have worked fine in the past, but that's electronics for you. Power surge, irregular power supply, excess power supply, etc can affect the unit thereby not making it to power on.

First, remove the unit's power cord from the wall, wait for about 30mins, then plug it back in. If it doesn't power on, plug it into another outlet, to make sure there electric current entering into the rmonitor.

If plugging into another power outlet doesn't power it on then it confirms that the receiver is having a power fault.

When electric current comes from the power outlet into the monitor, it goes straight into the power supply board which then circulates the current into the unit. So if the monitor doesn't power on, the first thing is to make sure there is power entering into the monitor.

So check the power cord, if it is a 3-pin plug, it must have a fuse in it. check the fuse if it is not blown. if fuse is intact, then power supply board should be checked.

This unit must have a power supply board in it where power enters from the mains. A capacitor, fuse, diode, etc may have been defective on the power board and maybe that's why its not making the unit turn on. There might also be some disconnection or something, inside the unit which is not making it to power on.

To actually find out what's wrong, you need to disassemble the unit with a screw driver and check what's wrong. You will be needing a meter and continuity tester in order to read the components on the power board. Once you detect any bad component, you can make necessary replacement at any electronics accessories store withing our vicinity. This is the only way by which you can detect and solve the problem.

Of course, testing the power board with a meter will require someone that has the ability. So it you can't, then you might be needing the help of a repairman or you can call a friend that has the ability to help you out.

I wish you the best of luck.

Regards.

I found a tablet pc settings option in my control panel on windows 7 pro and it reports that my hp w1907 can be used with pen input. Is there something I need to install to allow this? It doesn't...


The pen input is not available on the HP W1907 monitor. I have three of them and Win 7 tells me the same thing but there is no firmware in this monitor that supports pen input. There are other models that HP puts out that do and the driver is the same so the option appears in Win 7 by default. Sorry to give bad news. (trust me, I was excited at first followed by the Aw ****!)

You could have a faulty inverter board. The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp/s, these lamps are mini fluro tubes approx 1,5mm dia. and the length of the screen.
Check the inverter output/inverter board and you maybe able to get parts from

How do you clean the monitor?


You can buy specific kits for cleaning flat panel displays at either your local computer store or most electronic stores that sell accessories for computers. Read the instructions carefully to ensure that you don't spray any fluid onto areas that should not be made wet.
