Question about Compaq FP 7317 17" LCD Monitor
When I power up it turns the green light on until the monitor flashes, then it all goes dead. Then every 3-5 seconds it tries again and the green light and the monitor flash then die again, it is a constant cycle (over and over). This is my first flat panel and I bought it used (guess I should have got new lol)any ideas? Thanx, Will
I know im way too late for this, but your power supply is bad or wrong. must be 110 ac input-12 volt 5 amp dc output. just got a used one with no cord, found out the hard way. of course. had a 12v dc output but it was only 564ma. about 1/2 amp which did exactly the same thing

Heat from the switch mode power supply in the unit will detierorate the 1000mfd/16volt caps.I replaced all 4 of mine to restore from a dead unit

Not sure I can tell you the exact nature of the problem with the info you have given. However, here are some trouble shooting tips. These are the things I would do to figure out what is causing the problem: 1. Hook up a monitor that works so that you can make some configuration changes to the graphics card. 2. Find out the native resolution of the LCD monitor that has the problem. Many 17 inch and 19 inch LCD's are 1280 X 1024 with a refresh rate of 60 Hertz. It is quite possible that your previous monitor settings are not compatable with your new LCD monitor. This is an easy fix. So go into your graphics control pannel and start by making sure that your refresh rate is set to 60 and the resolution to 1280 x 1024 or perhaps even lower like 800 x 600 but 1280 x 1024 is fairly standard with many LCD's. 3. With these new settings hook your LCD monitor up again and see if that works. 4. Still not working? ... Then there may be a problem with one of the hardware components in the monitor. When the monitor flashes are you for an instance seeing an actual picture? If so then the problem may be with your lamp controler. It's what controls the brightness etc. of your monitor. What you can try to do is lower the brightness. This sometimes restores the monitor to being useful. ie. you can use the monitor but only at a lower brightness. Setting the monitor to a lower brightenss may be a bit of problem if you can't see the brightness control which is often displayed on the screen itself through the menu function. If you are briefly seeing a picture as it goes through this 3-5 second cycle then hit the hardware menu button on your monitor. You should then see some sort of menu that you can control with the other buttons on your monitor. Find the brightness selection and lower it. You can lower it all the way to 0 and still have plenty of brightness to see a picture. NOte: you may have to make the change in brightness within one cycle of it going off and and on because each time it cycles it's quite possilbe that it resets itself. So in this case you would have to be really quick with the menu buttons on the monitor. It might take a couple of tries (or more) to get the squences of buttons you need to hit to get the brightness down. I had this problem once with a monitor and I was able to get the brightness down but only after many tries. I had to be supper fast with my menu selections. After that was done it worked flawlessly again. 5. Still not working? ... you are right you probably should have bought a new one LOL ... or next time when buying a used one make sure that you see it functioning correctly on a computer before buying it etc... Best of luck. Sincerely, Dean Dean Kenneth Robinson [email protected]

Did the same and burnt a frazzled chip. it is on the 3rd circuit board (I believe it provides the lamp power). It is the 8 pin surface mount chip next to C900. As far as I can make out, the numbers on the chip are 4559 **** **7B I was told it's the lamp drive. If it is indeed lamp drive, then when you turn the monitor on, round the edges of a flashlight pressed to the screen, you should see a picture. If there isn't one, you may have killed more than I did. Is there no power regulator at the input? Good luck

it could be th epower supply and it could be the monitor.
power ON button should not flash orange regardless what you do. it should stay green. then orange. not orange to green to orange.
try the monitor on another PC if you can fine one.
the other thing is are the 2 monitor similar (CRT to CRT and LCD to LCD), you can't mix the the two, they will work but need different video driver to function correctly.
