Question about HP Pavilion MX70 17" CRT Monitor

3 Answers

Blank monitior I have HP Pavilion Mx70. When I turn the computer on the light on the monitior turns green, the screen remains blank/black and after a few seconds the little green light turns yellow as if it is in sleep mode. I have all the reovery disc, but can not do anything until I can fix the problem with the monitior. Can you help me? Thanks, Traci66

    I had exactly the same problem which was solved by disconnecting the cable to the computer and then reconnecting. There was, however, a six week period between the two events when I was using a spare monitor.

    It was only as I was ready to try a repair shop that I decided to look on the internet. A search for "HP MX70 fault finding" led me to FixYa as being appropriate on the first page of search results. On reconnecting the MX70 I pressed the power button and it is now working OK.

I have the same problem. Do This: When you Switch-Off the Monitor, there should be a small Click/Zip sound a second after the screen goes blank. Lets Call this as "A". Solution 1: Switch "Off" the Monitor & then Turn it "On" after 'A'. Repeat this till you get correct picture. Solution 2: Switch "Off" the Monitor & then Turn it "On" (after 'A' ofcourse) while holding the (+) button on the Monitor. This also Resets the Monitor to Factory-Settings. Solution 3: Try rapidly switching between various combinations of the Desktop Resolution, Adapter Refresh Rate & Color Depth Settings. Solution 4: Give Sharp but Careful taps with Soft part of your palm on the sides & top of the monitor when it is "On" & Do Solution 1. Believe it or not, It Works. Nikhil David, Mumbai-India.

This is a easy one. It happened to me once. If this ever happens again, push and hold the power button until the light on it turns off then turn it on again. It should work.

    sry, actually, you hold the computer power button, not the monitor power button.

There is probably some electronic malfunctions inside your monitor. Since I will not be able to actually check your monitor, the best solution for this is bring your monitor to a qualified TV/CRT technician in your area for proper diagnosis. He's the right expert and the second opinion to that kind of problem. Problems regarding inside the monitor are usually not fix-it-yourself kind of thing for non-expert like you compared to software problem, which can be mostly fix by yourself guided by an expert.

Hi, I have an HP Pavilion DV7 laptop. When I turn on the computer everything seems to be working but the screen is blank. Blank meaning black and/or colorless without light. Thanks!

Borrow a monitor and plug it into the side of the notebook to verify that the computer still works. If it does then the screen has gone out.

Computer on, screen blank and wireless unresponsive

YUP... sound like a motherboard problem. Could be a short somewhere. Try taking the Battery out and also the hard drive and put them back again. I have fixed such problems before by doing just that. GOOD LUCK !!

Monitor won't come on right away

Sounds like the CRT is starting to go bad cause its taking longer and longer for it to boot up. CRT's aren't available now so a new monitor would be the only option.

Blank screen. Remains blank

Power down, remove the battery, remove the power plug. Hold down the power button for at least 30 seconds. Remove and reinstall the memory module(s). Re install the power plug and try to power back up and see if it works. If it does, reinstall the battery ad you're done. If not, get back to me for some more ideas and further diagnosis.
Thanks and have a good day!
