Question about HP W22 LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Screen image appears fuzzy, jumpy and broken up into lines.

HP w22 LCD monitor and HP Media Center m8020n. I've had this system for a year and this is the first time this issue has occured.

When starting up the computer, the screen image immediately appears as hazy, distorted and jumpy, and it flickers rapidly with obvious 'pixilated' lines breaking down across the breadth of the image.

If, after I go to a few applications for a couple of minutes such as email, pictures, or anything else, the problem suddenly rectifies itself and the screen appears normal. This occurs everytime I now start it up.

The monitor says it is functioning properly. The cables are tight. There are no new updates for NVIDIA that I've downloaded. I have only 6.69 GB of 290 GB free on the "C" drive. I don't do gaming or watch TV or many videos.

Gardenman13, I would certainly complain to HP about their w22 monitor!! Find out if the units warranty is still valid and can be swapped-out for a REFURBISHED unit. Your w22 shouldn't be hazy, distorted, or flicker for any reason. My best guess is that it (w22) has problems inside with it's "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" and electronic ballast circuit called an INVERTER circuit, which could also cause the main "switch-mode-power-supply" to go a little NUTS upon STARTUP!! FYI you are dealing with a technology similar to the curlie-Q CFL screw-in light bulbs. Their ballast's are called CONVERTERs (ac to ac) and are cheaper. Your lanps are thinner and straight, hung on rear of your LCD panel. I hope this was informative. Please rate this on fixya. 12fixlouie

My Neovo E-W22 monitor quit working. I have had it just under 2 years. It is as if it is getting no power. Any ideas?


Open it up and look at the capacitors. The round "tin can" looking components. If the tops appear bulged, then replacing them may help. Check out the YouTube video... and web site...

HP w22 Monitor display disappears after about 2


bill, if monitor not covered by warranty, the check out YOUTUBE for long 8-12 minute video clips of LCD monitor disassembly or LCD monitor repair to find out what the major cause of your monitors SYMPTOM that you described above. Here is a small hint for you. If you didn't see the displayed data on the BLACK lcd panel with the flashlight "trick" then you would know that the entire "switch-mode-power-supply" was in complete SHUTDOWN mode or even blown the "line-in fuse" for the monitor. Also try a visit to www. ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm and view some of their vids on repair of lcd SMPS/INVERTER supplys and cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp replacement. They also do the repairs and return shipping. Please rate this on fixya if this response was helpful. Bye for now. 12fixlouie

This sounds like a changed resolution problem. You can find the properties of the monitor by finding a open space on the desktop screen and left clicking on it . Click on the setting tab and adjust to your viewing preference. or you can go to start and then open the control panel in windows. Go to display and open it. Click on the settings tab and check the resolution settings. If you have the owners manual handy check for the manufacturers setting. Then try resetting the resolution of the screen to your viewing preference. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

Monitor lcd acer al2016w 20" letters and image are fuzzy,,why?


I also have an Asrock motherboard (M266A) and have the AL2216W. The image and text is also fuzzy. I did improve it a by by unplugging/replugging all of the connectors on the back of the computer. I believe my mouse had a somewhat loose connection and this was causing interference. I can actually create interference on screen by moving my mouse up and down.
These Acer monitors seem to be very sensitive. I also tried this monitor on a old Desktop with Win98 and another new laptop with XP and it looks good on those computers, but not on my Asrock based system.
