Screen Doesn't show Transparent or High Opacity Images

When looking at images with a watermark. The kind that are semi transparent but still able to be recognized it is not showing up. I look at the same image on a regular old "crappy" monitor and *BAM* there is the watermark. I think I've tried everything, I am at a loss. Any help would be appreciated. Do I need to recallibrate the monitor, how do I do that?

Re: Screen Doesn't show Transparent or High Opacity...

Calibrate in the monitor menu the RGB values to sRGB space and disable all optimizations (movie mode, text mode...). Leave it in "Normal".
Also set carefully the contrast in the monitor to something like 60% and choose the right GAMMA in the image editing software.
Make sure you are using the native resolution of the LCD and check in the user's manual how to do the adjustments because all monitors are different.
All those settings are one-time programmable, once you got the right settings they don't need to be changed again.

Hi, my syncmaster p2270 seems to have some kind of focus issue. Everything is sharp, but to the right of the visuals on screen there is a duplicate, reflection of whatever is being displated on screen....

Hi Jonhy, on the pc , try this steps:
1. At the mainscreen mouse rigth click and go to Properties
2. Go to Definitions and Advanced
3. A window with graphic board's properties will come up and the choose 3D setup/config (depending on graphic board mark)
4. Change from Direct 3D to OpenGL and then Apply and OK to close.

This procedure is to change from hardware aceleration to software aceleration of image on screen. As that it will be sent only one kind of image definition from the pc to the screen with no repeating or mirrowed data. Hope it will helps you.

Instead of the usual Full black screen I got a cloudy white screen making all the images just like covered with a transparent or opaque white plastic.

That happens when the monitor goes off but the inverter light failed to switch off. The triac on the inverter board is shorted and must be replaced. When the triac on the inverter board is shorted a continues voltage is supply to the inverter light (or cold cathode) making your monitor to look like a transparent white plastic.

When recomended screen resolution (1289 x 1024) is used Sceren display size far too small

The reason why everything is too small is because you can now see your screen on a wider/bigger view of the graphics (it's like looking down from a tall building or looking down from an airplane. The difference is that looking at your screen is not that far. The Resolution is higher than before, graphics, pictures/images, video games, movies are all displayed fine. Having a high resolution screen is a GOOD THING! If you are not comfortable with this kind of high resolution then you can switch back to lower resolution but of course the consequences would be other softwares/programs may not work. It's just your personal perception.

HP Pavillion F1503 screen has gone dark...background is very, very faint, barely able to see/read it. What is the problem? If it is a ''backlight'', then what exact is a backlight, what does it do, is it...

Most of the time in this situation, the problem is due to the backlight going out. However, there are some instances where the inverter cable is bad.

The backlight is the part of the LCD which illuminates the screen. Think of an LCD as having multiple layers. One layer has the image itself on a semi-transparent layer and then behind that layer rests the backlight (usually a florescent bulb) which shines through all other layers to make the image glow and illuminate.

More info can be found here:

As far as replacing the backlight, I always replace the whole LCD itself, which includes the backlight.

Otherwise, you risk ordering the backlight and finding out that it was the connection from the backlight to the LCD that was causing the problem (very possible) and then you would have to order the LCD anyway.

I noticed a post you made about the Viesonic VX900 and fuses

I think you have bad CCFLs, (Cold cathode fluorescent lamps) they look like small flourescent lights and are used to light the screen. On smaller than 17" screens there are two, one on top and one on the bottom. 17" and larger monitors have 4 with real big ones having 6. If you attempt to change them be very careful not to crack the screen and remember the order of all the layers of the screen. The cost of the CCFLs along with the difficulty in doing this repair makes it not worth most peoples trouble....good luck

Menu display intermitent

display is disclosed which produces multiple visual displays in an intermittent manner which includes a display housing having a perimeter wall which is transparent during visual display and is an opaque mirror between visual displays. The perimeter wall of the display housing is a composite structure which preferably includes a transparent cylindrical substrate which is coated with an optical film and an opaque mask which defines display windows. Multiple visual displays are produced by a rotating display base which carries rows of rotating display elements. Preferably, the display elements are elongated triangular elements having three image faces which bear images which create the visual displays. The triangular display elements are arranged in a triangular configuration wherein the rows intersect one another at acute angles and are carried by the rotating base. The rotating base includes three display positions and each of the triangular elements includes three display positions. A stationary observer would see nine different visual displays and may see themselves mirrored in between and during the changes of visual displays. The perimeter wall of the display housing becomes transparent as the triangular display elements are backlit along their entire length by elongated fluorescent or neon light tubes. When the light tubes are off, the cylindrical display housing is an opaque mirror, preferably, about its entire periphery and height. Other embodiments of the invention include a single row of triangular display elements, and a rotating display base which includes display faces consisting of only a single display element.

Annoying background image

Ken, Unplugging the monitor for 48+ hours to disapate all electronics within the monitor may work. otherwise its probably a heat problem. When the monitor heats up something stops doing its job. Tim
