20 Most Recent CTX S762A 17" LCD Monitor Questions & Answers

Try to do this: Just before the Windows start up screen (after the bios loading) press F8 and log in at safe mode settings. If at this mode you can see your screen change the resolution settings at a lower set. Save and reboot normally. Now try step by step to increase your resolution. In case of a blank screen appears at a new setting, don't do anything; after some seconds the monitor will come back to the previous settings. Save and go on.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

I opened up and fixed a monitor just like this. The reason it only stays on for a second is because there are 4 or 5 bad capacitors on the power supply board that have over heated and gone bad due to cheap parts or poor ventilation. All I had to do was replace them and the monitor worked fine after that. Also i resoldered one joint on the bottom. While I dont reccomend the average home user to try this it is an extremely easy fix if you have the right tools.

separate your wiring. Touching wires cause cross-talk of signals. Should be immediate results.

1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor. 2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor. 3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on. 4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works). 5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord. 6. If the power light is on and yellow or flashing, but nothing displays, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor needs replaced.

Press the menu button again (or when done adjusting) and it will go away.

I would suggest turning the monitor off and unplugging it. Then retry the settings.Try this manual:http://support.octek.com.au/Downloads/Files/CTX/S762A.pdf

Did you try this monitor with another PC yet to find out if it is the PC video card problem or the monitor problem.
Most failure in the monitors are due to the bad capacitors in the power supply section as you can see in my albums of failed monitors and TV's.

Sounds like a faulty capacitor on the board inverter circuit. Or one of the lamps needs replacing. Either way, not an easy home fix unless you know what your doing. You can pull it apart and resolder the internal solder points. That fixed mine.

Thsi model has known problem with bad solder joints due to contamination, you need to remove the old solder on the four inductor leads, clean the leads eal well and resolder, see my pictures here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/HP%20F1703/
Al so look to see any one of the capacitors have bulging top, they should be completely flat top.

Check your cable that is coming from the video card. Try wiggling the cable to see if the monitor comes back, if that does then your have a bad cable.

When does it do this? Is it a power saving mode? Check the connections to the VGA cable are secure.

Look for a plastic screw cover at the top part of the table stand. You will have to use a plastic pry bar or plastic putty knife to unlock the inside holding clips. This procedure will have to be repeated when you remove all the screws from the rear panel to unlock the rear plastic casing from the front panel casing. Be careful not to apply to much pressure or you may break the plastic locks that hold together the case. Hope this helps you with your problem.

Inside of the base support there is a spring mechanism. I have seen the spring come off from its support, or some parts of the mechanism itself go defective. In some cases I had to order a new support from the manufacture.
