Question about HP 91 (White) 19" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Yellowing screen after 15 minute great working!

Hi! I have got a "HP 91 19" CRT Monitor" and it always works great in the early moorning after a long sleep at night. But after 15-20 minutes of perfect running, it starts to get yellowy. At first some yellowy lines running up and down, then there are more and more of them. At this phase, some little hit to the monitor's side solves the problem... for some seconds. Then after 2-3 minutes, it completely changes to a yellowy, little greeny screen. Not that bad, but annoying, and i work a lot with Photoshop, so i would need all the colors.

Here are all the symphtoms i have experienced:
- At night i switch it off, tomorrow it's gonna work perfect for ~15 minutes
- Before it gets yelowy, there is a little war with yellowy lines running up and down
- Finally gets completely yellowy, no response to hitting it.
- BUT! I found out, that the MENU SYSTEM of the monitor is all the same, NOT YELLOWY!

I think this means that the cathode ray tube is okay. Maybe there is something with the heating. Some components got dry or i dont know... When it warms up, thats when the problems get going. Please tell me if i can fix it by changing some easy-to-get components, or it can be cheaply have serviced or etc...

While CRT monitors are very good with color rendition, they do have a warm up time (at least 30 minutes before to get the truest color they can give) they also lose brightness and contrast over time. Since you do Photshop work and color is important to you, you should consider a new monitor, if you want to stick with the CRT style they are still available cheaper now because of the popularity of the thinner lightweight space saving LCD's, but you can get a new LCD which will be better that the .26 dot pitch you are used to on the HP. Depending on the extent you rely on your monitor for color accuracy, you can find a reasonable replacement monitor all they way up to an outrageously priced model which has lots of adjustments. Be be advised all monitors are going to look different and all should be calibrated, either visually with software based adjustment or with a hardware / software monitor calibration. That's a whole different solution - ask if you want to know more. I personally went from a 21" Sony CRT, huge and heavy to a 20" widescreen LCD, no regrets, the images are clear the display is stable. So go and look at them at your local computer store. The cost to have the CRT repaired combined with shipping (the weight is a factor) was just under the cost of a new LCD. There are very few user serviceable parts for monitors and repairing is not as economical or practical as it was back in the days of "TV Repair" shops.

When i turn on my hp pavillion mx50, it shuts itself off after a few seconds and doesnt work. What could be the problem?

The problem is more than likely caused by the flyback transformer, this generates the high voltage to the crt screen, when this part fails the protection circuit activates causing the monitor to shut down.

What flatscreen monitor is OK to substitute for sanpo alphascan 520?

Hi. Almost all the crt type monitors should work, it's flat screen monitors that seem to give computers problems with aspect ratios, and resolution settings.

I personally use an NEC AccuSync 70.
It might not be the newest monitor in the world, but the colors are crisp, clear, and bright.
And It allows a setting of [email protected] hz refresh rate, which works great for my games.

As far as flat screens, I would probably go with an Acer, or a Dell monitor, as these two companies seem to have better quality from their monitors than most other manufacturers.

I hope this helps you out!

Finding an equivilant replacement monitor

Any 15inch CRT brand will work, unless you have built in speakers. Most Cathoid Ray Tube  monitors have been being fazed out. You might want to consider a flat screen monitor. Used CRT monitors can be found , very cheeply, at most computer stores or even Cregs list.. We have to pay to dispose of them here in our city.

ferozkhan, It could be your LCD backlight giving you problems. With the computer on and the monitor power LED green shine a flashlight in the lower left hand corner of your screen. Look for the ?Start? button, if your backlight is not working you?ll see a faint ?start? button if you look closely. Depending on the monitor this is usually an economically repairable problem.
