hi there, Below the monitor, on the center are option button, you can explore that in adjusting your screen display. You can widen the display, or tweak it depending on the angle that you need to. Just press the center button and choose from the menu.

My crt acer ac512 monitar only centre line view,c"not full view why?


there are several reasons why picture of crt monitors did not display good picture. if your monitor had horizontal line at the center of the screen?...the faulty is in the vertical deflection, check the vertical oscillator also the fusible resistors & capacitors around that section. if there had vertical line at the center of the screen?..check the horizontal deflection, horizontal output transistor also check the YOKE.

Screen stretched out horizontally and distorting picture. None of the settings buttons appear to solve this. I can shift the image vertically or horizontally; but not squeeze it horizontally.


There are adjustments in the size of the items on a screen under the screen properties, settings. If you right click on the desktop screen and then properties you can get there. There is at least one size which causes a distortion of images being displayed. This may be your problem.

CRT Monitor Displays only a thin bright horizontal line


Vertical IC loose connection. Best is to reflux it or resolder. It is in internal circuitry inside the monitor commonly an upside single line IC.

And its a minor repair only. But I recommend it to be serviced by a qualified technician. Inside it are plenty of nasty voltages. It might caught you.

Monitor is vertical display instead of horizontal display


the keys ctrl+alt+right arrow should do the trick for you. if not then right click on the keyboard and select properties for options and you will find your graphics software has its own rotational software. good luck with two year old, sounds like you'll need it.

Horizontal/Vertical Postion of Image on LCD Monitor


the controls for focus adjustment are on the flyback transformer, (that big black thing on the left hand side (usually) of the monitor with the thick red wire that goes to the CRT.) the flyback may have 1,2,3 or even 4 knobs on it. 3 of these would be labled SCREEN (bottom knob of flyback. handles brightness)
FOCUS 1 + FOCUS 2 (focus adjustments. these are what you need to play with) and the 4th knob (some old mitsubishi workstation monitors had these) i do not know, it wasnt labled and HV adjustment was on the deflection board

Screen image display distortion


Hello.
What you are reporting is a problem in the pincushion circuit in the horizontal section of your CRT monitor. Usually this is from an electrolytic capacitor that is no longer willing to play nice with all the other components.
It is repairable, but get an estimate first. If the repair bill appears to be around $100, you would be better off to put a few more dollars with that and buy an LCD TFT monitor.
If you are quoted $25 or $30, it is probably worth having repaired. Just keep in mind that these older CRT monitors have age on their components, and once repaired, it will still be an old monitor.
Only you can decide which choice is right for you. At least now you have a few facts to help make the decision.
I hope this helps.

Faulty display on screen


Your monitor has a fault in the pincushion correction circuit. Most likely a bad solder connection, a failed diode or capacitor. I recommend you have a repair facility fix this one.
