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

White line across screen


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following
symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can
examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life
of your monitor or TV by several years.

Take it to a repair shop.

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...

Odd red fuzzy screen on desktop


Hardware failure in either the video chip or the lcd panel itself. To check which connect the laptop to an external monitor and see what appears: if the lines are still there then it's the chip - unreplaceable, the entire laptop is good for the skip; if the image is crystal clear then the panel must be replaced. If the laptop is still in warranty send it to them.

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

You could have a faulty LCD screen or a faulty video cable/connector.
Try reseating the video cable/connector that connects to the motherboard. If this doesn't work a replacement LCD screen may be required.

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.
