Question about HP P1100 21" CRT Monitor

Small annoyance with HP P1100 monitor. Slightly darker vertical lines.

Hello, I have a small annoyance with my current monitor. At two different places at my monitor I can see two slightly darker, vertical lines. They aren't black, they're just slightly darker than the rest of the monitor. The lines are hard to spot, but they are definitely there. I tried to turn off the monitor and turn it back on, but no result. Degauss did not work either. If anyone can give me any advice on this, please let me know.

This is completely normal and the lines are there for a reason. Due to the nature of Aperture Grill displays (i.e the majority of top end CRT monitors) there are two faint lines visable that look like there cutting the screen into a third. These lines are caused by two thin wires that run perpendicular to the grille which are used to maintain equal spacing between the vertical wires of the grille. It's very annoying when you first notice this, but you will get used to it.

If this is an lcd monitor,try to gently massage the area in which the lines are located,sometimes this can bring back what is referred to as dead pixals,there is a 50% chance that it will work,but good luck!

This screen uses a Sony Trinitron CRT and it's actually part of the invar mask if I'm not mistaken. This is a normal condition for this monitor.

Sounds like dried out electrolytic caps. How old is the monitor ?

Hello there is problem with my monitor LE2201W... there is lot of vertical and horizonyal lines in all colours mostly blue and dark red,picture is changing constantly,for second is OK after again blured...

There is a large board attached behind the LCD panel, the video enters and is processed on that board and distributed to the display screen, when there is a disruption in the processing it involves the panel that is tied to the main itself. If the video cable is detachable from the monitor and computer you can try to sub it for any change. Problems of this nature usually exceed the price of a new monitor and better just to replace it for a new one.

Small colorfull,verical lines on my COMPAQ V70 monitor.

open the monitor- with a wooden stick, or rubber eraser end of a pencil, gently poke and press on different areas of the boards, especially the neck board [the one the crt plugs into] - sounds like you may very well have a bad connection, especially a groung connection.

Not powering on

You will need to take it in for repair. This is most likely a power supply problem.

Dell e171fpb lcd monitor

The driver tabs between the LCD panel and it's controller board have failed.
These are very fragile and not repairable for anything in the cost effective range.
Best option is to either find a new panel to replace it, or get a new monitor.
