Question about LG Flatron L1710S 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Multi coloured lines all through display

My screen is covered in fine multi coloured lines. This applies in any programme although some are worse than others.My icons are all striped and any typing that do displays as black and green letters. My curser hs turned into a scratchy blot. I have checked for viruses and have run Spybot. The problem started a week ago, went away and has now returned with a vengeance. Hope you can help. Regards Marilyn

Re: multi coloured lines all through display

Sometimes the video cable is loose in one end and/or the pins in the cable are twisted. Try to reposition the cable or buy a new one (they are very cheap) Sadly, if you cleared that one up, then the monitor is probably faulty, try it in another computer,if it does the same you will need to take it to service.

My screen is saying burn in and keep switching colours all the time.(white,red,green,blue.

You may need to send in unit for service because your unit is unable to go to sleep mode when the signal cable is disconnected or the PC is turned off. Please call ViewSonic Customer Care for support.

Although this will not hurt the monitor, you just need to apply an active video signal to get a display correctly. However, it will not work as expected to go into sleep mode. You'll need to call ViewSonic Customer Care to get this taken care of.

ViewSonic VA2226w, horizontal light coloured lines through image regardless of resolution. They get worse when the monitor has been running for a while. Display otherwise working, powers up and down fine...

The lines appearing on the screen have nothing at all to do with the resolution. If the OSD display is correct (when the LCD is not connected to the PC), then the possible issue could be the RAM. Open the PC case and check if you have more than one RAM stick. Try using one RAM at a time and swaping RAM slots to see if the display is shown correctly. Make sure that the PC is turned off and power is disconnected before you remove/ install RAM. Most of the times lines appearing on the screen are due to faulty RAM. I suggest that you may also connect the LCD with some other PC to check if the issue is with the LCD or not.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Hope it helps! Good Luck!

LCD monitor have Vertical lines and black colour become greenish

normally the 19" resolution can support up to 1280*1024, but if it comes with vertical lines in full screen, it might indicate the panel is no longer to work and probably it's time to replace new one.

Black colour displaying become greenish and narrow vertical lines

Most LCD monitors have a default refresh rate of 60 Hz. Older monitors also have limited resolution. Please check your display settings and ensure you're not using a refresh rate higher than 60, or a resolution higher than what it supports. If either one is the case, you're lucky the LCD still works.

Hp dv9000 switches on to show coloured lines on screen.


My first guess is that the screen circuitry has gone bad - although fixable. Use an external monitor to verify this. If the external monitor is fine then the screen circuitry is bad, if the external screen shows the same problem then the video chip or associated circuitry has gone bad. My company fixes these all the time.

Severe noise on monitor when viewing white area

Although I still have the problem to a slight extent (very slight wavering of the vertical lines going from dark to light or white) reducing the contrast from 100% to 80% seemed to do the trick. Although this monitor is on the way out, it has lasted about 7-8 years now, at least it will keep going for a while.

I would check the cable and connector pins first. Then I would suspect there's a problem with the video signal board inside the monitor. It could be the LCD panel controls, too. That would make the unit beyond economical repair unless you got a used one.

Vertical colored lines

I had the same problem with my monitor, saw only coloured vertical lines. I opened it, opened the back of the metal casing to get access to the circuits. There I found a loose connector. I reset it and it worked again!

Green screen

From your lines... 'Tapping the side of the monitor' Reminds me cracked solder joints. You need to check for this.
First open the Chassis and narrow down the area of the circuit board where exactly applying force makes the monitor fine and in that area of board / around that area look for cracked solders. Definitely this will help you.
