Question about LaCie Electron 22" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Blurring of images and text

For the past few weeks my monitor has been running some parallel lines across the top 1/2 to 1 inch (6 or 8 white lines). Usually the screen comes on clear and then as it is being used and when the screen saver is interupted it develops this problem. Now the entire screen becomes blurry when left on for even a few hours. Looks like the image was wet and then dragged across the screen for about 1 inch moving horizontally leaving a very blurry image. Thanks for the help.

Re: Blurring of images and text

Mt, the 6 to 8 lines you were seeing were most likley the prelude to the end of the monitor. If the problem only occurs when the screen saver comes on then I could say the driver maybe being corrupted by a certain screensaver picture or program. When the monitor warms up to a certain temprature the electronics start to fail. You may want to turn off the monitor while your not right in front of it to cool it down and prolong its use.

My ViewSonic monitor is having an issue with blurring lines. Anything on the left or middle of the screen blurs to the right in a faded color, extremely noticable when I open MS Paint and fill the left...

This is a tipical flyback defect circuit, the lines can 1st appear on top/bottom of screen, then can increase to center. Send monitor to repair center, for check and repair. You can test with a tv test signal.

What sort of shadow lines? I assume you haven't just noticed the two horizontal lines 1/3rd up the screen from the bottom and 1/3rd down from the top from the internal stabilizing wires that all Trinitron CRTs have?

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!

Stripes on my Samsung Monitor

The contrast may be to high.
Adjust the brightness and contrast to make it go away but still readable.
if that does not help the FL (backlight) is going and the unit will need to be replaced.

Blurry vertical lines

Try changing the monitors refresh rate setting. I had this same problem and fiddled about with the display setting - I found that my monitor had blurry strips across it and the desktop didn't fit the monitor until I changed the refresh rate to 75hz
