It does sound as if the graphics processor of the video card has died but I suggest downloading the lastest driver for that card on the off chance it is simply a software hiccough.

If, after installing an updated driver it is still there, you might try changing the resolution via the Control Panel/Display, to see if the anomalies change in dimensions but this won't cure anything, only confirm that the card is at fault.

Please check the connection between the logic board and the LCD panel T-CON board, also check for cold solder joints on the circuit boards. Notes: it is not easy to get to the cable. It can be bad LCD panel.

My NEC Multisync LCD 2080ux + has developed a weak display which makes text harder to read. I have adjusted the ATI Radion 9600 graphics card with no success. Any ideas?


One thing that will affect how clear the display is if the monitors resolution is set to the wrong value. your monitor must be set at at its native resolution of 1600x1200. Any other value will result in a degraded display.

Vertical lines


1st print a report, can you see the lines? Then either the drum is faulty or the laser scanner is. If the lines are not present when printing a report, make a copy and see then if the lines appear. If so, the scanner is faulty. Try cleaning the glass with glass cleaner. However, blank lines mean that bits are missing from the scanner itself and the scanner will need to be replaced.

Vertical lines more or less... baclk is grey and blured


It could be a bad connection somewhere. Try checking: -Where the video cable plugs into the PC. Remove and check for bent pins, corrosion and replace and firmly reconnect using the thumbscrews on the connector. -Where the video cable plugs into the monitor. Some LCD monitors have removable cables some don?t; if yours does follow the same procedure outlined above. -Could be a problem with an internal connection. A quick test and perhaps even fix would be to grasp the right and left sides of your display while it is on (displaying the offensive lines) and gently twist like you were wringing out a towel. Again, and I emphasize, gently using only a couple of ounces of force. Watch to see if the lines disappear, get worse of make the screen flash or change. If you do then its likely cause is the connector from the LCD panel to the electronics has oxidation or a loose connection. If you?re lucky the flexing might even fix your problem, if not you will have to take it apart to find out exactly what is going on. If that doesn?t work then the next thing to try is connecting the display on another computer to see if it also displays the same lines. If the lines are still there then the problem is in your display and depending on its value and your finances you might consider taking it to a repair shop for an estimate. If the lines are gone take it back to the original PC to see if the lines reappear. If they do then I would suspect your video card or drivers as the likely candidate. Let us know if you have any more questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
