Question about Westinghouse L1975NW Monitor

2 Answers

Monitor has wrong resolution suddenly

I have a laptop, but the backlight burned out so I bought a L1975NW to use as the main monitor for another year, at which point I planned on buying a new computer. Everything was working fine, but today when I turned on my computer the display looked zoomed in and when i moved my mouse to the edges of the screen, it would scroll in order to be able to display that part of the screen. I checked the display settings for my computer and they were as they were before (1280 x 800). Then I looked at what the monitor itself was set to and it was 1024 x 768 for some reason. I can't change this at all.

The weird thing is that when my computer is turning on and is at the loading screen, the monitor is at 1280 x 800, but right before it gets to the user account screen it turns black for a few seconds and switches to 1024 x 768. I have an ATI Mobility Radeon 9600 graphics card by the way. Like I said, everything was working fine yesterday.

    I should've mentioned that my computer uses Windows XP, and I'm sure that it isn't because of an option made by the computer such as a magnifier tool.

    I have the same res. dump problem. I even bought a new graphics card to try and fix it. Are there drivers for this monitor?

L1975NW Monitor: My monitor is very dark; too dark to even see how ...

More likely the backlight is not on, check the caps (leaking/bulging tops) in the power supply first, then check the fuse in the inverter circuits, when the caps went out it may have taken out the MOSFET for the inverter transformer with it. See failed WESTINGHOUSE and other monitors due to bad caps.

How to check if its just burned out & not tech. problems


It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem, this series ofWestinghouse monitors are known to have this issue. After a few yearssome LCD monitorswill blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts calledcapacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. When thecapacitors blow out they also damage the driver MOSFETs. If you aregood at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts, replace any that look like the picturesand your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to beinstalled with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on theold one and insert the new one the same way. I am putting together astep by step repair guide for this series of LCD monitors, it should beup by 07/11, check my web site for the guide. Repair parts kits are also available for $16.95 If you don't want to trythe repair yourself we offer a repair servicefor $35 plus shipping. If you are not going to repair it we will buy it from you for parts, we pay $30 for dead/as-is units.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Just look for the newest driver there is for your graphics card. Try here

If you still can't set the resolution to match the optimum for your new monitor then the graphics card isn't capable of matching it. You could add a new graphics card.
