Greetings to all and happy new year!
Back on pages 433 and 434 I have described some problems with my HP A7217A(differently branded FW900). Basically the main problem was that it turned off the moment I plugged a VGA cable in it. After leaving the monitor in a repair shop for a few months this issue is finally fixed. The man said there were broken circuits on the D board. Now the monitor works, however when I first turn it on, the image is extremely bright and it takes about 30min to come down to normal. The problem can't be fixed by adjusting the G2 voltage with WinDAS. I have the same problem with a Sony E530 except it warms up faster and the brightness goes down to normal in about 10min.
Any ideas on how to fix this?
That's normal for CRTs. You need at least 30 min for the monitor to warm up and stabilize.
