Question about LG Flatron 915FT 19" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Screen width keeps changing

Whenever I switch on my monitor it comes up with the resolution I expect - 1024 x 768. However, after a couple of minutes it sort of 'clicks' and the screen resolution changes to what I imagine is right for a widescreen display (maybe 1280 x 768). Then after a varying time - can be anything from 2 mins to 20 mins it 'clicks' again and all is ok again. Is this something I can fix or is it a sign of a hardware problem? I've tried using the OSD and played around with various settings but this doesn't help. The monitor is about 4 years old. Thanks.

Re: Screen width keeps changing

This is a hardware problem. There's a high wattage resistor inside which normally gets quite hot. Eventually this resistor desolders itself due to heat and breaks the circuit. Any repair-shop can fix this by re-soldering mentioned resistor (it is easy to distinguish it by its brownish color) using a suitable solder or by replacing this resistor by a more powerful one. Another workaround is to change a video mode to, say, 1280x960 or 1152x864 (while in these modes, monitor circuit bypasses the said resistor).

My computer monitor shows a message "out of range". I can't get rid of the message or show anything from my computer.

The resolution your computer is sending is greater than the maximum support resolution of your monitor that isn't working or is a resolution not supported. Connect one of the monitors that works and turn down the resolution to something small (800x600 or 1024,768) and then switch to the original monitor back, you should see a picture and can adjust the resolution to something larger that the monitor supports.

Width of the screen is increased by itself. Now I want to fix it.

It could be the graphic card is not setup for the system you have. I would get the driver from the manufacture on the web for the monitor and or update the setup that came with your system also from the manufacture of your computer. IF that don't work I would try another Monitor.

You need to set the PC VIDEO resolution to the native resolution of the monitor to get correct aspect ratio (not adjustable at the monitor, the adjustment is doen at the PC VIDEO card setting), you need to find that out from your monitor owner manual.

Monitor wont stay on- blue light is on. but screen keeps going blank.

Have you tried the monitor on another computer? If so, and it works, the issue is with your graphics settings on your computer. LCD and plasma based monitors often come with a protection circuit that disables the monitor if the synch or refresh rate are beyond it's capabilities. this is to protect your monitor from damage.

Do not exceed your monitor's max resolution.
Resolution is determined the following way:

Width x Height @ Refresh Rate
For your model:
  • Max Resolution 1440 x 900 @ 75Hz
More detailed information about your monitor can be found HERE. If your monitor is still under warranty, and you find it to be faulty, you may be able to send it to the manufacturer for repairs.

HP W1907 Monitor goes black after resolution change

This is normal, but it should only take less than a minute for your computer to readjust, make sure all your graphic card drivers are updated, for that may be a factor.

Contact me if you need more detailed explaining.

You to change the setting of your monitor that is found at the bottom of your monitor some near the power button (of your monitor when you turn on the monitor) it is a push botton where you can change the width, height, etc. not on the resolution or any program found in your computer.
