Question about BenQ FP71E 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor goes blurry, colours/pixels start shaking across screen

This problem started about a month ago. It tends to happen when the monitor is idle for even a few minutes. The best way to describe it is "Monitor goes blurry with colours/pixels start shaking across screen". Best comparison is like when an old TV starts getting grainy when it loses signal. Monitor is only 18 months old. When this problem happens I have to restart my whole system. Any help would be appreciated! :) Thanks.

Re: Monitor goes blurry, colours/pixels start shaking...

Do you have your screen saver enabled, i so turn it off and se if it still does it. Secondly boot your pc in safe mode(pressing F8) on boot up and select start windows in safe mode. See if the monitor still does it, if so a monitor fault or loose/faulty vga lead. If it is ok then your graphics driver may be corrupt and need re installing.

I have an HP L2208w monitor which has been ok for the last two years. Suddenly, it started to display patches of different colours. Also vertical and horizontal colours appear across some pf these patches....

hi steven_katas

Im thinking that this maybe a LCD panel problem (dead pixels) already. some LCD panels last for 2-3 years depending on usage. even if you haven't dropped it or anything the LCD panel's pixels ten to give way slowly or die down since these pixels are like bulbs. here's what you can do. Try connecting a different cable from your monitor to your computer if the issue is still the same, try connecting a different computer or maybe a laptop to your monitor just to eliminate the probability that it can be a cable or a video card problem.
If you have already connected a new computer say a laptop and it is still the same it might already be a hardware problem with your monitor and might need you to bring it to the service center for repair.

Hope this helps please let me know

Screen goes pink and green starting with a few pixels

Best thing to do, try a different known working monitor to hook up to the computer. If the screen works and doesn't change colors then you know its the original monitor that is bad.

If you hook up the known working monitor and the same problem happens then you know its the video card that is bad and the video card would have to be replaced.

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.

Samsung crt 591s blank problem

This eventually happens to all CRT monitors. Either the flyback transformer or some other critical componant has failed, and the screen cannot produce a picture. It might be an easy fix, but it would be better to get a new one.

Solid line completly across screen, monitor is brand new

Your comp's video card refresh rate (in Hertz, abbreviated Hz) may not be totally compatible with the monitor. Check the properties of your video card, and change the refresh rate (you may have to look around for it) to 60 Hz. This is a pretty standard refresh rate that works with just about every monitor. If it's already there, I'm afraid someone else will have to try and help!

Hope this helps, and please rate my answer, good OR bad.

Good luck!

Interference on screen

Are you able to test this monitor on another computer as it sounds like a graphics card fault and not the monitor.
