Question about LaCie Electron 22blue II 22" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

CRT discoloured Hi everyone, I bought a few days ago a used Lacie electron 22' Blue II monitor and im experiencing some problems and wondered if anybody here can help. The right top corner of the monitor is discoloured (slightly yellow) and i notice some red bleeding against the blue log on windows screen on the left when ever i turn the pc on. Now I contacted the guy I bought it from and he said the problem is minor and easy fixable by using degauss. I have done this and to my knowledge the screen does it automatically when turned on anyway. But no luck. the discoloured patch persists.I had some speakers around the monitor but after a bit of research, i found out that they may cause the problem so i moved them away. Does any one know if this problem is easyly fixable as the seller suggested? or is the screen faulty? Any help will be appreciated. thanks

Re: CRT discoloured

If it's a deguass problem, you can glue some very small magnets to the sides of the crt tube itself, it could be the shadow mask, inside the monitor, and if it is then nothing will fix it, if you can get a deguass coil from somewhere that would tell the story real quickly

Do you have a soldering gun? Its not that hard to fix, get the capacitors on ebay for $6-$8 with shipping.

Monitor into TV

The monitor may not be compatible with your TV box. Basically if the monitor can't handle the refresh rate or resolution a blank screen like this will result. There should be a way to change the refresh rate or a standard refresh rate listed in the manual. What brand/,model of tv box is it?

Blurring of images and text

mt, the 6 to 8 lines you were seeing were most likley the prelude to the end of the monitor. If the problem only occurs when the screen saver comes on then I could say the driver maybe being corrupted by a certain screensaver picture or program. When the monitor warms up to a certain temprature the electronics start to fail. You may want to turn off the monitor while your not right in front of it to cool it down and prolong its use.

Sounds like this one needs component-level troubleshooting in the power supply section.

Lacie Electron 22 Blue Monitor problems

This problem sounds like it has to do with your video adapter settings rather than the monitor itself. What way have happened is that your screen resolution size decreased (explaining the zoomed in), while the desktop size remained the same (explaing the ability to slide all over the place.). All video adapters are different, but try the following. Right click on your desktop and select properties. Go to the Settings tab. Do you have 2 slide bars there? Possibly one for Screen Resolution and another for Desktop size? If so, are they set to different values? Go resolve the issue, set both sliding bars to the same values, for example 1024 by 768 pixels. Adjust these setting to get back to the settings you had before, making sure that both values are the same.

Lacie 19" Electron Blue - Black screen with a brilliant white line across

I have 2 of these monitors and have this problem. I was so frustrated turning the monitor off and on until the white line disappeared that one day, I punched the screen. And it worked! So now whenever this happens (about once every other day) I use my palm and smack the lower left corner of the monitor until the white line disappears. I like the color on these screens so I don't want to replace them until I have to. I will NOT buy another Lacie though.
