Some countries get themselves 'burned' to a spot because of lack of use. a slight twich one way or another will reset it . The control that you are referring to is it a direct acting one - that is does the work or is it of the switch variety- that is you activate the control but then have to move larger wheel to do the work?

SOURCE: Can't Fix Pincushion

If the menu is appearing then it should be able to adjust the Monitor, provided you have replaced the micro switches. Check for continuity by pressing the buttons. I don't think that there is any prolem with other components.

Problem with monitor


Your post/description indicates a "pincushion" problem; the width problem is as you have stated.

There are two (2) possible reason for these problems:
1. component failure in the horizontal section of the monitor. These components could either be a diode, a capacitor or a resistor. In some cases there are trimpots in the PCB that can be adjusted to correct these problems;
2. component/connection failure in the controller section.

Of the two, I tend to suspect #1 as highly likely the case. Repairs such as this would require that you be familiar and comfortable working with electronic components and circuitry, the use of a DVM and a soldering iron. Should this be not to your liking, your next best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

IBM G74 Monitor

CRT monitors suffer from the so-called pincushion effect. It is the curving of the actual video picture usually inwards on the sides. There is often an adjustment to compensate for this and it's usually situated near the other user controls. Look for it in you manual.

Now, because of magnetism differences in the world. The monitor is setup to work where it was built. The pincushion effect get worse over time. The degree of severity depends on the location of the monitor and the quality of the design of it to facilitate enough future re-adjustment by turning the pincushion knob.
