    Kds Monitor - Display pulls in on each side to somewhat of an hour glass shape . A tap on the side of the monitor restores it for varying lengths of time but is BY ** MEANS a fix . I don't think I know enough about it to get inside the cabinet to try anything.

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.

White line across screen

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following
symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can
examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life
of your monitor or TV by several years.

Take it to a repair shop.

Monitor screen display stretched center but squashed/narrow edges

On the monitor itself, I am guessing this is a desktop? There are buttons for adjustment. Look for the menu button around the bezel of the monitor and press it. Scroll through the settings for the default setting and press that. Once the default settings are made for the monitor, then you can go to the graphics settings available through windows to get the resolution straightened out.

Dell Monitor E207WFP Picture Not Centering

Try another monitor on the PC, see if that helps.
If it does, the monitor is faulty. Try resetting it to fctory settings.
If it isn't, it's probably your graphics adapter, or something in between.
First check the vga cable, then reinstall the graphics driver.

I hope this helps,

Screen display

You have control buttons for the OSD either on the bottom or the side of your monitor.

Push and enter the set up and push buttons until you see the arrows that move the screen up or down, right or left.

Your model may have one of the buttons marked automatic. If so, pressing that one will center the display on your monitor.

Let us know if you still have a problem!

Screen image display distortion

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.

Problem with my Dell E771mm 17 in.CRT monitor

How far from the sides is the image? If it?s just an inch or two you can use the monitor adjustments to expand the image to the edge of the screen where it was previously. If its too far in then the only option is to have it repaired. You didn't mention where you are but in the US even a minor monitor repair that involves at tech opening the monitor is going to cost at least $45, perhaps more. That?s a lot of money for a monitor worth about $100 new so a new or used monitor may be a more cost effective option for you. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don't forget to rate this post.
