Question about Computer Monitors
The desktop screen on my monitor is beginning to fade, and I would like the resolution ot be much brighter. How do I do this please. Nothing I have done appears to work so far.
1. adjust the monitors brightness and contrast
2. adjusting the brightness and contrast with your video card software
if that fails
1. decide if the monitor is worth the money to repair or scrap
2. you can buy a brightness kit
3. you can have the monitor ( rejuvinated ) " the tube part "
Most monitors lose brightness over time , but don't give up on CRT becuase it's 60 years of proven technology and can provide unilimited colors. the situation has improved with newer monitors.
if the monitor claims it has extra bright technology , don't trust it because that extra circuitry can cause premature failure of the other circuits such as the vertical , that was especialy true of viewsonic A90F+ , and it's not a crime to tell the world they don't stand up to the test of time.
for some reason certan monitors last a long long time and others don't.
the smaller 17 inch monitors can "most of the time" outlast the bigger 19 inch size monitors.
That prety much tells you we're being sold junk.
so buyer beware.
KDS xFlat monitor 17 inch is a good buy for around 100$
while the Proview models that look like them are NOT they lose focus fast.
and almost all DELL monitors last way beyond expectation.
CTX monitors offten lose every colorgun except green lol
I've worked in the monitor repair field for a long time , I've replaired countless monitors.
Always buy a digital monitor with digital controls , analogue controls are prone to being knocked out of adjustment very easly and you don't want that.
if your monitor is older than 5 years old and begining to fade , it's time to seriously consider buying a new one.
You'd be supprised at the quality of some of the off brand monitors vs. the high and mighty big name brand monitors.
I hope these tips help you get the best monitor for your money.
it's just unwise to spend more than 200$ for a monitor givin their life span before failure.
so go out there and take the bull by the horns and when you get a good little monitor , hold on to it
love it , and if you're smart you'll buy two of them and stick one in the closet in cause the one you're using does fail.
I think even ole magic seadog would agree with me on that..
have a good one , shalom >:D<
