Re: horizontal lines on lcd screen

Weirdguy250, -Try connecting the display to another computer, if the follows the display chances are good its a problem cable inside or more likely the LCD panel itself going bad. If the problem stays with the computer: -Try reseating your video card. -Unplug, inspect and reattach your video cable. Check both ends if possible and pay special attention to any bent pins. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don't forget to rate this posting.

Why half screen is ok, other half I.e. bottom part horizontal lines are seen.

Your LCD or Control Board is damaged. You can replace the LCD or the Board or have someone do it for you.

ViewSonic VA2226w, horizontal light coloured lines through image regardless of resolution. They get worse when the monitor has been running for a while. Display otherwise working, powers up and down fine...

The lines appearing on the screen have nothing at all to do with the resolution. If the OSD display is correct (when the LCD is not connected to the PC), then the possible issue could be the RAM. Open the PC case and check if you have more than one RAM stick. Try using one RAM at a time and swaping RAM slots to see if the display is shown correctly. Make sure that the PC is turned off and power is disconnected before you remove/ install RAM. Most of the times lines appearing on the screen are due to faulty RAM. I suggest that you may also connect the LCD with some other PC to check if the issue is with the LCD or not.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Hope it helps! Good Luck!

How can remove horizental line

If you have horizontal lines on the monitor screen it might be an issue with the Monitor itself. To confirm this you can simply disconnect the monitor from the Computer and check if you still get those horizontal lines.

If you still see those lines then probably you might needs to call the manufacturer and check the warranty status. If it is still under warranty you can get a replacement for it.

Also you can try to press the MENU button on the monitor and then select the factory reset option and check if it gets resolved.

Hope you find this information helpful.

What disavantage about LCD?

The most notable disadvantage to LCD screens is their fixed or native resolution. An LCD screen can only display the number of pixels in its matrix and no more or less. It can display a lower resolution in one of two ways. Using only a fraction of the total pixels on the display or through extrapolation. Extrapolation is a method whereby the monitor blends multiple pixels together to simulate a single smaller pixel. This can often lead to a blurry or fuzzy image particularly with text when running the screen below is native resolution.
Video was problematic with early LCD monitors because of lower response times. This has been overcome by many improvements, but there are some that still have low response times. Purchasers should be aware of this when purchasing a monitor. However, the improvements are often work arounds that can actually lead to another problem of reduced color clarity. Unfortunately, the industry is very poor about properly listing the specifications for monitors to help buyers understand and compare monitors.

  • Blurry images Outside Native Resolution
  • Motion Blur on Fast Moving images
  • Some Models Have Reduced Color Clarity
Conclusions At this point and time, most consumers will likely be purchasing LCD monitors over CRTs. There is almost no difference in the cost to consumers thanks to production improvements in LCDs and the reduction in the production of CRTs. Typically CRTs will only be seen sold with the least expensive of desktop computer systems or by those with special imaging needs such as graphics and medical professionals.

On the monitor there should be some buttons that allow you to manually configure the width and hieght that the screen comes up with.
Does you screen come up squashed but you can still see everything or only 1/3 of the screen is shown and the rest is black.
