Question about E-Machines eMachines Monitor E15T4

1 Answer

Monitor problem - images are "shaky".

For the last week, or more, the images & print on my screen appear to bounce slightly (side-to-side). It gets worse at moments, to where it becomes difficult to read.

I have checked all external-connections and cleaned out the dust inside the hard-drive (no rust). - There are no new electronics around the PC to cause interference.

What can/should I do now to resolve the problem? - TIA

    Thanks! - I have been told to unplug & re-insert the graphics card (in case it came loose?) to see if this helps. I have not done that yet. - Should I? (I was told it is inside the hard-drive, where the monitor wire goes into the back of the PC. - Right?)



    I'm learning as I go, so, I don't know what a plug-in card is (except a memory card for pictures/videos). - Do I need to buy something else for the AGP slot? - And, I don't know which is the AGP slot?...Got any further directions for me? :)

Are you using the onboard graphics card? if yes try using a plug in card in the AGP slot to see if it makes a difference.It sounds like either an onboard graphics chip problem or a motherboard problem. come back to me for more emachine support, One of my specialised fields is in these computers.

    Hi, the onboard graphics card plugs in high up on the back of the case just below the keyboard/mouse connectors. If your monitor cable is plugged in here, your pc is using the onboard graphics card. If it is plugged in further down in one of the expansion slots, it is using an AGP card. the AGP card is a graphics card that plugs into the aGP slot on the motherboard, the brown one on the motherboard set slightly further back than the white pci slots.

Hp 2010i monitor shaky, can't find degauss option


I don't think degaussing your monitor is going to help with this issue. Degaussing mainly addresses color correction around the monitor edges due to a magnetic field and applies to CRT monitors not LCD monitors which yours is. If by your term "shaky" you mean the image is unstable, then the problem is either in the main board which controls the X Y sync or with the power supply board. If you are knowledgeable with electronics you could probably repair this at home for $40 or less. If not then I would shop for another monitor to replace yours. Don't throw your old monitor away, instead post it for sale on craigslist. There are a lot of do it yourself type people who will buy this either for parts or to repair and resell. I don't know what it will bring as far as cash, might be $40 might be $5 but anything is better than zero.

Samsung syncmaster 914v monitor problem. right side of display is darker image. can see dots like a newspaper print or looking through a screen. when display is black it almost appears like an image is...


This is likely the LCD panel itself - you are describing a left/right image error that can be only created by the left/right division by the LCD driver wrapped around the outside of the LCD panel.
If your monitor uses a separate circuit board to drive the LCD, it could be this driver board.
Either way, it will require an LCD panel - $$$

This is due to a bad pin or bent pin or a bad connection isde the monitor or can even be a bad signal cable. Check all of these when in doubt check the solder points inside the unit.

Black edges to individual lcd cells


Sounds to me like the screen is starting to go bad. Best way to find out though, try another known working monitor and see how that works. If the other monitor works well then you know the original monitor is the problem.

If the 2nd monitor gives you problems then you know its the video card thats bad at that point cause you would be having the same problem on both computers.

Dim monitor


5 years old, lamps are good for about 50 000 to 60 000 hours of life you would have to do the math based on average number of hours per week/month and see where your are, several things to check initially are inside look for blown capacitors, you can find images all over the net Google "blown capacitor image" and you will see what to look for.
Next could be inverter failure as they get old and work pretty hard. Last the ccfl lamps may be dieing of old age like the florescent lamps in buildings, they get burnt at each of the ends and have a hard time lighting up.
let me know what you find.

Acer P193W monitor stretched image


What service pack of windows xp are you running? Also, do you have your old monitor, if so, then plug it in and see if the same problem occurs. If not , go under the settings for your graphics card (not windows display options) and see if there can be a correction made to the settings for your monitor. Also, try going to microsoft.com and updating your computer (it's free) and you'll probably get the required driver to fix the problem from them. Check under your control panel and see if you have automatic updates turned on, if so you may want to limit what updates are to be installed by allowing updates but you choose which one's to install. Hope I could help. My e-mail
