Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

Open Question

Horizontal lines across my monitor.

My monitor was working fine for about 3+ months. Then I gotthese faint horizontal lines. Just turned on my screen one day and had horizontal linesthat span the width of the screen and scroll along with the image. It's like whatever image is on the monitor bleeds across the screen. Like at night when you see light spread horizontally from a streetlight. I hope this helps explain the problem. Any help would be awesome. Thanks.

SOURCE: acer x191w monitor background is moved to the right with about 2inches of black on left side.

I tried this and it still does not fix my problem. I went into Menu and hit reset by mistake and that totally screwed up my monitor. Now the left side gets cutoff and no matter what I change the resolution to it does not fix it.

Whjat should I do?

SOURCE: desktop is dispalyed horizontal on monitor

The Ctrl-alt direction key sequence is supposed to be used for changing your workspace. On my computer at work it changes the screen orientation Ctrl-Alt-Up - right side up
Ctrl-Alt-Right - 90 degrees
Ctrl-Alt-Down - 180 degrees
Ctrl-Alt-Left - 270 degrees
(If that doesn’t work, try Ctrl-Shift-R)

SOURCE: monitor with horizontal shakes

i have found a twisted groundline makes my monitors horizon dance, try a more natural approach to your power cord setup, like a waterfall or growing vines, rigged every 8 inches

If your computer does not have a video card that supports the correct resolutions for the widescreen monitors, then your picture may get stretched. Much like watching normal tv programs on a an hd set. It will eitther strech or cut off the picture.
Try different settings in you computer display settings.

Changing computers doesn't help. Followed all suggestions from Viewsonic Tech Support. Problem is in monitor circuits--had to replace it.

Very horizontal faint white lines running down the screen


hi,

check if the line appears in BIOS...dont worry when i say BIOS...not sure how to check...turn the system off...restart the system and keep tapping the F2 key...you would get a Blue screen...check if the lines appear on this screen...if it appears...it could either be b'cause the display driver has gone wrong or the system might have a physical damage.....if the lines does not occur on this screen....it is a manufacturing defect...please contact the manufacturer and report the issue for solution.......

Do you have the monitor plugged into a power strip. If so unplug it and plug it directly into the wall.

Horizontal lines on Screen


Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!

Horizontal lines


Horizontal blur can be caused by both a bad monitor or a bad video card/Card Slot on the motherboard.

The easiest way to check this is to connect the monitor to a known good system. If the problem follows the monitor to the good system, the monitor is bad and will need replacement. If it works fine on another system the problem is the video card/slot

Horizontal line throught the screen.


Sounds like it might be getting too hot and/or going bad. Try it on another machine and see what it does. Also try another video card because the video card could be going bad.

Hiyama Monitor Model: Vision Master 17 (8617E Chassis)
Horizontal dark line across screen shadowing text or other complex display data - giving appearance of 3D grooves or just dark lines on light background - temp fix (few minutes) by banging monitor or jiggling the video cable (thats what threw me for a while)
Removed tube base board and ran over disc capacitors and other solder joints whether they looked dry or not. No re-occurence in 2 weeks of daily use. Seems to have fixed it. (Be prepared for a lot of metalwork and screw removal when opening one of these up - I still havn't figured out how to get the PSU/main board out of one !)

Horizontal lines are appearing and moving acrosss the screen of my View Sonic E50C Monitor...


What is wrong with your monitor is that the Horizontal section is going faulty, the lines you are seeing are the Horizontal Retrace lines, usually invisable in a working unit. It is often a faulty capacitor(s) OR a Diode breaking down.. in the area of the Flyback Transformer. Probably time for a new one unless ya can fix it yaself.
