Question about TTX Medallion Series -8570 (White) 15 in.CRT Conventional Monitor

1 Answer

Grey Squares on the monitor

Hello, I am trying to use a TTX 17 inch CRT monitor (not sure which model, doesn't say anywhere, it's basically a discarded monitor from some office) along with my regular monitor (ViewSonic E90f+), in dual-view mode. I have a GE force 6600 with all the latest drivers, and my computer is an AMD Athlon 64 x2, also with all the latest drivers. my motherboard is an asus A8E-N with the latest bios. I don't know why it doesn't work because I have tried the dual-view feature with at least 3 other CRT monitors and it worked *perfectly*, at 1280x1024 resolution with 75 hz refresh. But now the problem is this: the monitor turns on, but will only display a bunch of grey squares. Then it turns off, and back on, with more grey squares but at different resolution. And it just keeps on doing that, and simply never reacts to anything I try to do from my computer, as if it's just not plugged in. When I unplug it from the computer, however, the only difference is that the squares turn white. My Nvidia property menu detects this monitor as being "TTX Digital Display" but as I said, seems to have no way to affect it in any fashion whatsoever. The buttons on this TTX crt don't do anything either, believe me, I have tried all of them, and I also tried keeping them pressed for 15 seconds each and stuff like that but nothing happened at all. i also went on the TTX website and downloaded the drivers that they have there, and installed them, but that also didn't change anything at all. So there you go, I'm completely at a loss. Should I just look for another CRT to dual-view with?

Try reducing the resolution, Since the CRT you are referring to is old monitor, it might not support high resolution.

Hello sir, i hav LG CRT 15" monitor. After turning on, its LED continuous blinks and power button does not work and displays nothing. so plz suggest me what should be deffect?

Any 15-inch CRT-style monitor should be replaced by a 15-inch or 17-inch LCD-style monitor. You can find "previously-owned" monitors for $30 to $50, which is less than taking your CRT monitor to a TV/video repair-shop for an *attempt* to get it repaired.

Hi, My DELL 17' CRT Monitor is not getting power suppply. Please help me out for the same. Kart.

Spend $50 (or $100) and buy a used (or new) 17-inch LCD monitor, rather than "investing" $50 to $75 to pay a TV/video technician to *TRY* to fix your CRT monitor.

The monitor is blank (pale gray color). No information How can I find a monitor to replace it? The computer is a Dell Dimension 4600 series. I don't know what are the video characteristics of this...


OK, the package comes standard with a 17 inch screen(CRT). So, basically you have 2 choices, you can either buy a replacement CRT screen or you can buy LCD, these are the cheaper options available at this moment.

I would personally go for a LCD screen. the size is a personal choice, but i will not go any bigger that a 23 inch with the graphics card installed.

You will be able to buy it at almost any computer store, and it is cheaper than you think.

Please let me know if this was sufficient, if not, i will try and better explain myself.

Kind regards

I poked around the website for you, and found the following blurb:

"A. All models manufactured after 1999 are “plug and play” compliant, therefore “plug and play” drivers supplied with your specific system will work the same as the “TTX.inf” driver found on our website.

If so, here is the link to their "TTX.inf" driver.

Now, a closer look on that page said "CRT Monitor", and that may not be what you have. I did stumble across another of their pages talking about Touchscreen Manuals and drivers. Find that here:

This page says to match the last two numbers of the product ID on the back of the unit to their chart of drivers and manuals.
Hope that helps!

Princeton CD770MCN 17 driver and or setup program

My only suggestion: responsibly recycle that 17-inch CRT, and buy a used 17-inch LCD; around here, the local "government surplus" store is selling 3-year-old 17-inch LCDs for $50, plus taxes.

If it was a "plug-and-play" monitor, then there was _NO_ need for any "drivers" at all, because the monitor would identify which combinations of horizontal/vertical pixels and refresh-rates that it would support.
