Question about LG Flatron F700P 17" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Color not stable.

I just bought this monitor last year. After bought it, my friend tell me that it have like some inner curve, not to its resolution but its screen. I thought its still ok then i let it go as it. When its going about a year old, the color becomes unbalance/trouble. Sometimes it not have color except grey and very sensitive when have some / a little shaking. When its ON for a while(15minutes), then its become OK. But it is just sometimes. And sometimes will going bad again. I really dissapointed of this expensive monitor. At top of view is ok and clear, and at bottom i think its little blur. What is the problem. Is it just a small problem and can be fixed without expensive cost? Or should i buy a new one. I work with computer and little confuse about it because it still can be use as normal when OK and going bad sometime and make me very disapointed! Please suggest me.

Re: Color not stable.

Your description sounds like a unit with cold solder joints or a bad capacitor. It sounds like you have the skills to check the 1st problem. Remember safety. If you can solder remove the back and solder all the connections on the main circuit board. Give this a try. This could easily solve your problem. Probably more than half of these kinds of problems are related to poor solder joints. If this doesn't fix it finding a bad capacitor could be more than you are capable of, which means you may need the assistance of a qualified repair tech. Good luck.

The words 'Auto Adjustment' keep appearing on the monitor screen. If I pull the mains lead from the monitor screen, it temporarily clears the message, but it soon returns. Help please!

hi, How do u do?? You must select the right resolution for your monitor, if you tell me the exact model name, I will tell you which resolution is best for your monitor. usually the last option in resolution list (windows resolution setting) is the prefect one, but sometime it's not correct.

Good day, I have an Acer AL2423W monitor. When I turn it on, for the first few minutes all I get are vertical coloured lines. After a few more minutes the screen images start to become visible, but...

Hi Friend, In this case what I would recommend you is to connect any external monitor to the system to check if you have the same issue with the external monitor as well or not.
If yes, then it might be the issue with the video card so, you can try updating the video drivers for the system.
If no, it means that the original monitor has some issues with itself..
Also what I would recommend is try to lessen the screen resolution instead of 1920 x 1200 to lower resolution and restart the system and check if it makes any difference..
Also update the video drivers for the system.

Need to set the color to 6500K

No, the manufacturer is the one to contact on what resolution is best for your project.
Most monitor are already set for best resolution for photos and movie view and also media editing so you should be OK
if your monitor is a recent model at 16500X780 or it says that is 1080p or 1080 i then you should have no issue with the color setting.
You can go to the control panel and set the display settings for hue, color , contrast and brightness if your Monitor has a graphical user interface for it. Check your user manual for color adjustment for your monitor and also the video card that is install in the PC.
The "control panel will have the display setting for "true, and High color resolution.

This issue is weird, I don't know if the monitor you bought is new or not, or is there any changes done in the computer prior to that issue. The only thing I could think of is there might be an incompatibility issue with the video card to the monitor you are using. I don't know if they have the same brand and model but if not, most probably that the monitor is not compatible to the video card.

Connection hook up problem

Set the resolution lower.

It is telling you that the resolution you want is beyond its normal operating range.

just drop it to lets say 800 x 600
Then bump it up one resolution at a time until you get the message again, then drop it back one.

Running monitors above the acceptable range can drastically shorten their lifespan.
With lcd monitors you are much better using the DVI cable if yout video card supports it.

Sounds like a faulty IC chip or relay that is triggered by heat. Usually in that case it costs as much to repair the monitor as buying a new one. If you want to get it checked out by a local technician it's up to you, but i suggest not to bother and just go buy a new one. I suggest a LG LCD monitor if you want good quality. I sold those for a while and also worked with them a few years and they are pretty much the most top of the line monitors for a reasonnable price and hardly ever fail. If you want to pay a little less for your monitor, i recommend a Hanns G monitor. Bought one for my girlfriends computer 2 years ago and a friend of mine also has one and they are pretty good quality and also pretty durable for a lesser price than the LGs.
