HP 9000 (712/100) workstation - problems with LCD monitor

[ Edited ]

I am trying to connect a HP 18" LCD flatscreen display with a HP 9000
workstation model 712/100.

Although the resolution is set correctly the display intermittently "flashes"
to a blank screen. It is not a set frequency of flashes, but appears random in
duration.

The display and video cables are not faulty - I've tested them on an NT
workstation.

Any ideas much appreciated.

Re: HP 9000 (712/100) workstation - problems with LCD monitor

The D5065W / L1800 flat-panel display is listed as being supported on the
B/C/Jxx00 models, as well as the X/P personal workstation models. The native
resolution of the display is 1280x1024 @ 75Hz. I don't have one of these
displays to test on a 712, but could you confirm (via BOOT_ADMIN) that your
resolution is set to this mode and not "sync-on-green"?

Hi Chuck,

Thanks for rsponding.

I've interrupted the boot admin and allowed the system to cycle through many of
the monitor types - always seeing the same screen blanking.

I also manually set the monitor to the HP L1800 Monitor recommended resolution
of 1280x1024 @ 60Hz since this should is supported by the 712/100 - (monitor
type 5).

I've tried many of the types including the obvious 1024x768 @ 75Hz.

I'm still seeing the screen blank for a second or so. It's almost as if it's
power related, but can't be since the monitor works fine on an NT client
(Omnibook 3000 laptop).

Any other ideas?

Regards

Caron

I have the exact same issue. Did you ever find a solution? Sorry I have to follow a thread that is 2 years old, but this is the only post turn out in the search.

Thanks

I'm also jumping onto this old thread with the same problem - envision 15" lcd monitor, 712/60 and a constant cycling of displays modes, none of which seems to be compatible. Anyone found a solution?
