Question about Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 2020U Monitor

Open Question

Screen image sporadically changes between 2 sizes.

For a given resolution setting the image size varies from a normal 100% to about 85% size. This happens particularly on startup or when screen goes from screensaver powerdown to active. When the screen shrinks it always brightens significantly and black levels become poor. It will switch back and forth between these 2 states (100%/normal and 85%/too bright) about evry 15 seconds to 2 minutes until the screen has been on for 1/2 hour to one hour. What is the defect and how can this be repaired. This is an otherwise very satisfactory monitor and I don't want to ditch it.

SOURCE: Screen goes black with white horizontal line.

WHEN does this problem occur? Does it ONLY happen after the computer loads Windows (or another OS), or does it happen as soon as you turn the monitor on? We really need more information before we can provide specific advice or suggestions... IF this happens as soon as you turn the monitor on, switch it with a different monitor. If the problem goes away, the original monitor is defective, and probably not worth the cost of repairing it. If the problem ONLY happens after you load Windows, boot the system into Safe Mode (press the F8 key during bootup until you see the menu which allows you to select Safe Mode), then reboot and see if the problem has been resolved; simply booting into Safe Mode, then rebooting the system into Windows MIGHT solve this WITHOUT requiring you to change any system settings... IF the problem remains in Windows AFTER you've booted into Safe Mode AND rebooted back to Windows, the videocard driver might be corrupted. In that case, you'll have to reinstall the vidcard driver to correct this problem... If all else fails, it IS possible that the videocard itself is defective; if installing an updated driver doesn't work, try swapping the videocard with a different one. BE SURE to uninstall the OLD videodriver, and install the proper one for the new videocard; if you don't install the correct driver, you could create MORE problems than you have right now...

SOURCE: Diamond Plus 91 monitor

Have you tried a different cable? It could be broken.
On my Plus 91 with special software (Powerstrip) I can get the refresh rate up to 119Hz at 1024 x 768, but I use 1280 x 960 at 96Hz as it's the highest res I want to use for prolonged periods of time as 96Hz doesn't give me eyestrain no matter how long I stare at this thing.

What is the recommended resolution for HP2009M

The stated native resolution of this monitor is 1600 x 900. If you set your display resolution to that in your computer's configuration, you will get the sharpest display.
Note that there is always a trade-off between sharp image and the size of displayed items on the screen. By that I mean that if you set your display to 1600x900, your text will be sharp, but it will be smaller on the screen than if you see the resolution to 1280x720, for example. The trade-off would be larger text (say, if you have vision problems), but the text would not be as crisp.
Experiment with a few different resolutions to see what looks the best and has the best text size on your screen.
Note also that most browsers will let you enlarge the web page on your display by pressing Ctrl+ repeatedly until you get the size you want. Pressing Ctrl- will reduce the web page displayed size.

Image set up of screen is only half of the monitor

If you v-size is already at 100% then the issue is with the picture being sent to the monitor. Based upon what kind of input you have for the monitor there is a number of different ways to fix this. I will assume you are using the monitor with a desktop computer. If this is for XP, then there is a simple fix as follows, adjusting your display properties:
Right-click on your desktop background and then click on "Properties" this will open up a new window. Select the "Settings" tab, then drag the green arrow in the "Screen Resolution" field to the desired setting. Since you have a "widescreen set-up" you more than likely have a resolution where the first number is about twice the second number...they should be close to even to have a square image (bigger numbers show more detail than smaller numbers).
Hope this helps!

My monitor changes colors (e.g. normal then turns

Color changes on the display mostly occurs because of a faulty VGA cable or a loose connection of the cable to the VGA port at the back of your PC or Monitor. But if the cable is fixed securely at the back and the problem still persists, slightly move the cable's wire segment while observing its reaction on your monitor. Does it change colors while u do so? If it does even when the cable is securely plugged in to both the PC and the monitor, then u need to change the cable.
As for the visible display area size (technically called the Resolution) right click on an icon free area on the desktop and click Properties. At the top of the form click on the Settings tab. At the bottom of this form find Screen Resolution and adjust it to it your requirements and click Apply. On the confirmation dialogue that pops up click Yes if the displayed resolution suits u otherwise click No and try another resolution size. Hope this helps.

Display appearing stretched

the original image size was probably recorded in 4:3 aspect ratio...meaning your widescreen is a 16:9 ratio size screen and is stretching it outwards to fill the whole screen. If you want the image to look normal.. ie. not short and fat people.... you need to change the picture size in the settings from widescreen 16:9 to normal 4:3 tv in the settings menu most likely...Also most remotes will/should have a button for that.

Monitor is enlarged, wont return to normal size

Hi, three possible things. 1) You have activated the magnifier. Go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, Accessibility, Magnifier - deactivate, should be a small window bottom left of the desktop. or 2) Your screen resolution somehow changed. Right click on any clear part of the desktop, go to properties, Settings Tab. Adjust screen resolution to desired setting then click Apply/OK. or 3)You are in Safemode. Restart and if same large icons etc, do # 2. Hope that this be of some help to you. Pls post how things turn up. Regards
