Having problems with your HP Computer Monitors ?

Our HP L1706 monitor has worked perfectly with our Mac Mini for the last two + years. The last four days when we turn it and the computer on a green light on the monitor flashes, no picture, and maybe an hour or more later the monitor will finally display the Mac Mini desktop. Do you think the monitor is dying? Or has some setting on the computer or monitor inadvertently been changed?


Answers :

Make sure that it is directly connected to the Mac Mini and not through some other device like TV Tuner, Video capture device.
If it is already directly connected then the picture tube might be reaching the end of it's life, You need to replace.
