Question about ViewSonic G70f (Beige) 17 in.CRT Conventional Monitor

1 Answer

Squiggly monitor I have a monitor that is hooked up to a projector in a lab setting. The screen on both sides of the monitor, not the projected image on wall, is very squiggly. Is there a fix to help the screen so that it is not squiggly and you can read it without hurting your eyes? The monitor also does this when it is not hooked up to the projector.

Since the image on the projector is OK then the problem definitely lays in you monitor. You might want to turn off any other electrical equipment in your lab, especially any kind of radio transmitter and see if that is affecting your picture. Strong magnets or large power cables can also generate magnetic fields that can adversely affect CRT pictures as well. If that isn?t the problem then it is likely the monitor. It can be fixed; however, this is typically beyond the skills of the average user. Any TV and some computer repair shops can repair a CRT but is it economically feasible? A new 17? CRT can be had for $60 on-line and that has a 1 year warranty. Repairing your old monitor could easily run that or more and usually is only warranted for 90 days. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this posting.

Infocus lp425z projector pushes latop display to left quarter of output image

Usually this is a hardware acceleration setting problem on the 'advanced' properties setting in your 'screen resolution' properties on your computer. Re-set the hardware acceleration to the 2nd setting and this should fix your issue. We have this regularly when we project on a double projector system and the one projector keeps shifting everything left until we adjust the hardware acceleration settings on the computer. No more issue.

Computer used to work with projector, and now doesn't?

Have you tried pressing Fn F5? On my system (HP), by computer monitor goes dark when I connect the projector. Pressing (Function) FN F5 toggles the video between Computer Monitor, Projector, or Both.
Check the function settings for your computer. On my Compaq laptop at home, the video function is F4, so there may be different settings for your computer.
Good luck!

Can't get computer images to project

Hi, I have found out that you must have the laptop set to an external monitor, in the control panel, display area, click on 2, then you must have the projector turned on before you start the laptop so it can recognize that the projector is there. Also make certain that you allow the unit to cool off by turning the lamp off, leaving the fan on and open the door where the projection lens is located.

Reversing the picture on the monitor

Here is the manual:
ScreenPlay 4805 ScreenPlay 4805
Check page 38 on picture settings, you can revers the image to project from behind a screen (mirror), I don' think you can have picture upside down (180 rotation) using projector settings. You need to reverse image source (eg. picture on computer).

Projected image is not the same as computer monitor

as long as nobody has physically changed the lens poition, you can go into the menu on the projector and do a factory reset. this should default the settings back to where the installer put them.
