Question about HP vs19 (Silver) 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor problem When I have a document in front of me and I try to slide the blue cursor down slowly, three lines at a time setting, it refreshes the screen which is very annoying. Please can you advise. I recently upgraded my computer to Windows XP but the monitor though very new, was installed ahead of this purchase. My brother talked me through getting it sorted on-line but it is still faulty.

    Dear Andrew??

    Thank you for your advice re getting the correct driver for my installed Display Adapter under XP. Two things have happened since I posted my request for help and I would welcome your further advice as to what I should do next - I am not a technical user. In order to progress the points below, I have been talking at length with my brother by Skype as we live in different parts of the world, so on-site help is not available. Thank you in advance for your reply.

    1. I have improved the situation by degrading the display refresh settings (Start > Display > Troubleshoot > Hardware Acceleration) from "Full" down to "None" and switching off "Enable Write Combining".

    2. I had previously attempted to install the correct driver (from Hewlett Packard) as follows, but suspect this was not successful. Being talked through by my brother, I located the correct HP website driver download for my named display, and selected the "Run" option. Nothing significant appeared to happen and when I re-inspected the name of the installed driver, it still appeared to be a generic default one from Microsoft. It did not have a name to match the display. I wonder if I should have selected the "Save" option, put the file somewhere on my C:\drive, and then attempted a re-install using the XP wizard and entered the location of the driver from which to get it.

    Thanks again for your help.

This is a classic case of Windows generic graphics card driver. You need to find out what type of graphics card you have fitted or what onboard graphics chip you have. If it's an AGP card go to my computer>properties> hardware tab>device manager and look down list for display adapters, if it's onboard then it maybe an intel chip. Make note of the make and go to the relevant web site for the drivers

    The best thing to do would be to go back to your graphics card in the device manager, right click on it and delete.

    Restart your pc and the graphics controller will be found by windows, but when the window pops up asking to install driver automatically, click no and select install manually and point windows to wherever you downloaded the driver.

    The other way to do it is to install the driver if there is a set up file in what you downloaded and it should then associate with your graphics controller.

    You should then be able to right click on your desktop and change your resolution settings to a reasonable display size or press the auto size button; if you have one on your monitor.

SONY PROJECTION TV TROUBLE SHOOTING BLUE SCREEN


This was one of several Sony models that had bad picture tubes--the set uses a red, green, and blue tube.

There is something easy you can try that may help you get some more life from the set.

SONY SCREEN ADJUSTMENT:

Here is what you need to do.

1.) You need to remove the entire plastic piece below the front of the screen. You most likely will find 3 screws on either side in back that you have to remove.

2.) The grill will not come out easy, pull from one side and then when it starts to come loose from the other side(there are several plastic pegs that hold it in.) Then from the bottom pull out( most of these sets have square plastic tabs at the top that tuck in.)

3.) With the grill removed locate the inspection plate behind it (it usually has 6 screws.) You will have to tilt the grill to the left and on its side as several cables are connected to it--they are held in place with trash bag like ties that you can release to get some room.

4.) With the inspection plate removed you will see a fairly small (about 3 inch square) BLACK PLASTIC BLOCK WITH SIX CONTROLS-usually they are marked with whiteout so someone can tell if they have been adjusted.

5.) You need to look very close at the block with a flashlight----usually the top three controls are FOCUS--don't touch those.
The lower three are usually marked Screen and if you look very close you will see b, g, r(blue green red)

6.)Usually the GREEN will be in the middle.

7.) Once you locate the BLUE screen control have the set on and turn it down--if the set is shutting down you may have only a few seconds to try to turn it down---usually to the left with the Screen control.

8.) Best way to do this if the set is on is on a video input clip_image001.gif with nothing connected--you turn the Blue screen down until the set stays on and then very slowly turn it up until you see a slightly Blue screen with or without diagonal trace lines----turn it down slowly until the Blue screen and trace lines just disappear.

Let me know if you get it to work--Like I said if it is shutting down you may have to slowly turn the screen down a few times to get it to stay on.

If it works you may only be buying some time--if the blue tube caused this it may return at some point.

If all this information has helped you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

Screen flashes blue, then shuts off. red light blinks eight times, then repeats


This model had a lot of problems with bad picture tubes--the blue one is the most common to go bad--the tube will pull so much current the set will go into shutdown.

The tubes are only available on a rebuild basis--very expensive and usually not worth doing.

THERE IS ONE OTHER THING YOU CAN TRY TO DO TO MAKE THE SET WORK FOR A WHILE.
v\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} o\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} w\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} .shape {behavior:url(#default#VML);} Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Here is what you need to do.

1.) You need to remove the entire plastic piece below the front of the screen. You most likely will find 3 screws on either side in back that you have to remove.

2.) The grill will not come out easy, pull from one side and then when it starts to come loose from the other side(there are several plastic pegs that hold it in.) Then from the bottom pull out( most of these sets have square plastic tabs at the top that tuck in.)

3.) With the grill removed locate the inspection plate behind it (it usually has 6 screws.) You will have to tilt the grill to the left and on its side as several cables are connected to it--they are held in place with trash bag like ties that you can release to get some room.

4.) With the inspection plate removed you will see a fairly small (about 3 inch square) BLACK PLASTIC BLOCK WITH SIX CONTROLS-usually they are marked with whiteout so someone can tell if they have been adjusted.

5.) You need to look very close at the block with a flashlight----usually the top three controls are FOCUS--don't touch those.
The lower three are usually marked Screen and if you look very close you will see b, g, r(blue green red)

6.)Usually the blue will be on the bottom left--it does vary

7.) Once you locate the BLUE screen control have the set on and turn it down--if the set is shutting down you may have only a few seconds to try to turn it down---usually to the left with the Blue Screen control.

8.) Best way to do this if the set is on is on a video input clip_image001.gif with nothing connected--you turn the blue down until the set stays on and then very slowly turn it up until you see a slightly blue screen with or without diagonal trace lines----if you get it to turn on this way turn the blue screen back down slowly until the blue screen and trace lines just disappear.

Let me know if you get it to work--Like I said if it is shutting down you may have to slowly turn the blue screen down a few times to get it to stay on.

IF this works you may only be buying yourself some time--if it is the blue tube causing this sooner or later it will repeat--I have seen several sets where the adjustment allowed the set to work for another year or more.

could be fixed by ajdusting the refresh rate....

please rate if useful, good luck

Open Display in Control Panel.
On the Settings tab, click Advanced.
On the Monitor tab, in the Refresh Frequency list, click a new refresh rate.

To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display.
  • The default refresh frequency setting is 100 Hertz, although your monitor may support a higher setting. Check your manufacturer's documentation for information regarding the settings your monitor supports.
  • A higher refresh frequency reduces any flicker on your screen, but choosing a setting that is too high for your monitor can make your display unusable and cause damage to your hardware.
  • Changes to the refresh frequency affect all users that log on to the computer.

MONITOR ABCs
The monitor is a hardware device which physically connects to your video card. The monitor allows information and current status be be visually outputted similar to a TV.
monitor.gif Like most TVs, the computer monitor has a CRT, or Cathode Ray Tube, which is found inside the computer monitor as illustrated in the above picture. The CRT is the main component and most expensive part within your computer monitor. Within the CRT are three electron guns, Red, Green and Blue. Each of these guns streams a steady flow of electrons, left to right, for each line of your monitor. As the electrons hit the phosphors on the CRT, the phosphor will glow certain intensities. As a new line begins, the guns will then begin at the left and continue right; these guns will repeat this process sometimes thousands of times until the screen has been completely drawn line by line. Once the phosphors on the CRT have been hit with an electron they will only glow for a short period of time; because of this, the CRT must be refreshed, which means the process will be repeated as explained above. If the video card's refresh rate is not set high enough, you may encounter a flicker or a noticeable steady line scrolling from the top to the bottom of your screen. If you are encountering this issue, resolutions have been described on our video card page.

MINIMUM RESOLUTION The size is an important factor of the computer's running resolution. When picking the resolution, try basing it off the monitor's size for best use. 13-inch 640 x 480 15-inch 800 x 600 17-inch 1,024 x 768 21-inch 1,280 x 1,024

Solid line completly across screen, monitor is brand new


Your comp's video card refresh rate (in Hertz, abbreviated Hz) may not be totally compatible with the monitor. Check the properties of your video card, and change the refresh rate (you may have to look around for it) to 60 Hz. This is a pretty standard refresh rate that works with just about every monitor. If it's already there, I'm afraid someone else will have to try and help!

Hope this helps, and please rate my answer, good OR bad.

Good luck!

If the refresh rate is not properly set the monitor may have a wavy or an appearance that lines are going down ... This may also cause a flickering affect.
Distorted or skewed image on monitor. Issue: Distorted or skewed image on monitor.
Cause: This issue can occur from any of the below possibilities.
  1. Windows issue.
  2. Loose or defective cable.
  3. Refresh rate issue
  4. Interference.
  5. Bad monitor.
Solution: Windows Issue If your monitor has a proper display until it gets into Windows 3.x, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows ME, or Windows XP please see document CH000121 for software or setting related issues.
Loose or defective cable You may receive a distorted image when the cable is loose or defective. Disconnect the video cable going from the back of the computer and verify that no pins are bent, burnt or broken. Once verified re-connect the monitor cable.
Refresh rate issue If the refresh rate is not properly set the monitor may have a wavy or an appearance that lines are going down or across the monitor slowly or fast. This may also cause a flickering affect. Additional information about how to change the refresh rate can be found on document CH000558.
Interference A distorted image can be caused by magnetic or other types of interference. Verify no speakers, fans or other magnetic devices are close to the monitor.
Bad Monitor If the above possibilities have been checked it is likely that the monitor is bad. To verify this it is recommended that the monitor be temporarily disconnected and then connected to another computer. This can be a friends computer, a work computer, and/or a computer at a service center. You can also help verify a defective monitor by connecting another monitor to your computer. Note: Connecting your possibly defective monitor to another computer will in no way harm the other computer.

Monitor turning itself off


It sounds like the problem is with the computer's video adapter settings. It is very likely that the monitor cannot handle the settings. If you boot into safe mode, can you see everything? If so, then the normal mode settings are too high. Safe mode defaults to the lowest possible settings (thats why everything will look really big) Try turning down the resolution (Right click on the desktop, select properties, go to settings tab) to the lowest possible setting, and then slowly try turn them back up again until you can find the maximum setting the monitor can handle.
