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.

I have 2 of these monitors with the same problem. On power up the green led will light & remain on but the screen remains black. On one of the monitors the screen will light up for a few seconds then...


The inverter that turns on the back light may be bad - it's suppose to create the high voltage pulses to fire the CCFL back light lamps. Apparently the back light turns on after a few seconds however, it cannot stay on because the inverter might be bad. If you connect a known external CCFL lamp to the to the inverter output you can isolate the inverter.

I have an hp pavilion a720n desktop with an hp pavilion mx70 monitor and windows xp home. There is a problem with the color displayed on the monitor. I see mainly black and white, but blue shows up fine....


First of all you can check the computer by connecting another monitor to it to see if the problem goes away...if so then the problem would be in the monitor. If not , then I would try to change the video grafics card in the computer(assuming you don't have built in video). If you have built in video on the mother board then you will either need to replace the motherboard or disable the onboard video and install a video card

The screen remains black when computer is turned


maybe a hardware problem, on booting the pc, move the screen to every angle to see if there is a connection problem.
If so, then use your warranty if you have one.

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.

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!
