Question about HP P1100 21" CRT Monitor

4 Answers

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.

    I do not know how old it is, as I am borrowing it from a friend. Is there an easy way of finding out how old it is?

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.

Not powering on

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

Red vertical line.


I will give you a small step through which you would be able to know whether its a hardware or its a software issue.

You need to log in to the BIOS. Do not change anything in the BOIS just check whether you have that red line in the BIOS.
If you see the line while you are in the BIOS, that means its a hardware problem and you need to contact the manufacturer (In this case HP ). You should get a replacement if its under warranty.

If you do not see the red line in the BIOS than it is a software issue and you need to start with reinstalling the Display drivers.

Note : - Steps to go to BIOS. ( Dont change anything in BIOS )
Turn off the computer
As soon as you turn it on start tapping the key "F2". ( "Del" in some brands).

Hope that will give you a good insight.
