The screen has 4 duplicate images

I have a Compaq that has been doing fine until today. The screen is split with a black line into 4 images that are all the same. The comp. itself works, but its images are in fourths and hard to read. Please help!

Here's what to do:
first find a way to hook up to and external monitor and see if the picture is the same
if so then its a ruined motherboard which is too expensive to repair
otherwise its a screen or a ribbon cable that connects to a screen
that can be fixed at a store or if you know how to then by a screen off ebay and put it in
but first find out if its a cable or screen

Screen image is split with diagonal slants


Hello Sashaone,

The F3 has the most extensive selection of focus screens ever made for a Nikon camera - 22 in all. The "L" and "P" will give you the diagonal split image rangefinder that you love. The difference is that the L has a groundglass/Fresnel lens field around the split prisms. The P has a microprism collar and an inscribed horizontal and vertical line forming a large cross.
You should also be aware that with slow lenses with maximum apertures of f/5.6 or so, these prisms tend to black out. Here, Nikon has solutions too, including the R screen, which has gentler slopes on the prisms to combat blacking out with small maximum aperture lenses. The R also has grids to help with composition, similar to the E. Then there are the all matte, all microprism, aerial image screens (C, M) too.
Personally, I have the C E K M R screens, in alphabetical order.
Some subset of these screens are available for the other Nikon F series cameras (F, F2, F3, F4, F5, F6), as well as the FM2, FE2, FM3a line, which can also interchange screens.

Thanks.

How to focus with vivitar v3800


Turn the focusing ring on whatever lens you're using. You can use either the split-prism in the center or the the microprism collar and matte screen around it. For the split-prism, turn the focus ring until the two segments of the image divided by the horizontal line in the center line up. For the microprism collar and matte screen, turn the focus ring until the image appears sharp.

Samsung plasma HPR4272 that had a 4" black vertical line on


There are at least two issues here. First you have bad buffer boards. Second Very possibly a bad X-Main bd and P-Logic bds. Have a trained Samsung tech troubleshoot the set.

Vertical lines obscuring image


The matrix is dead. Probably because of an intensive light got into the lense while the camera was in night mode. It's dead. Nothing can be done.

Multiple screen coming up in black and white also flickering on and off


I have a logitech quickcam E3500
I have 4 black & white images

I tried downloading older and newer versions of the software, no joy.


From the logitech site, I found this fix:

Go to Start>Run, type "dxdiag", wait for the application to show, then go to the "Display" tab and disable Direct3D acceleration or Directdraw acceleration. Exit. That's all.

I tried it and it works a treat.
