Ghost Image I have two PCs, both HP Vista Home premium... Both have monitors HP w19b. Within 2 weeks of each other they started to have a ghost image to the right of the object. The ghost image is a faint shaded area. The ghost go directly to the right ...not right and down or up, just to the right of it. How do I get rid of it.

    Thank you so much, I didn't ask the original question but by simply plugging the monitor in to a different socket, away from the others and changing the position of my speakers my shadow, as explained by the poster above, has been fixed. Thank you. ewan

Mark165,
Are they both about the same age? Also have you recently added a device that is sitting near the monitors such a an external hard drive, printer, new speakers or power cord or cable next to or against the monitor cable? I sounds like EMI to me, shield the cable or plug of the offending devices into another outlet away from the monitors to test that theory, or having them on a separate surge protector should eliminate the noise you are reporting. Some go as far as adding UPS with line filtering (or conditioning) for the devices - you see it with home theater setups when the TV, computer, games and stereo are all plugged in the same outlets on the same home circuit.

    There are no electronic devices near the monitor and I reinserted the cord, all to no avail.

Double image on screen


Hello,
Usualy in these cases I check the VGA cable. If you can buy new one, but not cheap one will solve the problem. Just to be sure that this is your problem hold the small vga cable cylinders with your hands for 5-6 seconds. When you release them you shouldn't see the ghost image on your screen. It sounds weird but it works. By holding these cylinders you remove the static electricity of the cable. Try to understand what device around your monitor causes the problem. The cause also may be lot of power cables or power sources near the VGA cable.

I get ghost images. Is there a way to de-gaus an LCD monitor?


Sounds like it's either ghosting, or image persistance.

Ghosting on LCD monitors is usually caused by interference via the monitor cable. Try moving your monitor cable so that it doesn't pass near any other cables or electronic devices. If that helps, then position the cable away from the others perminantly or replace the cable with a "shielded" monitor cable.

Image persistance on an LCD can be caused by leaving it on with the same image for a very long time. The pixels don't exactly "burn-in" like on the old CRT monitors, but over time, they can develop a memory that causes them to change color slowly or incompletely. Prevention is best (turn the monitor off when not in use, or use a rotating screen saver.) But if it is already a problem, you do have a few options. You can turn it off for a long time, run a rotating screen saver for a long time, or display a solid white screen for a while. Another technique is to create a slideshow in the Windows screensaver with a solid white image and a solid black image (create them in MS Paint and save them where you can find them later.) Let it alternate between the white and black screens for a while and check to see improvements.

Good luck!

My crt monitor has a white ghost image to the right. It looks like JPEG artifacts. I've replaced the monitor and I've tried another graphics card, but it's still there. The PC is an HP d325.


A ghost on your screen is usually caused by a second or reflection of the same image getting into your monitor, and the space between the real image ant the ghost is the delay in time or extra distance the second image travels before it is displayed on your screen. It is usually caused by a defective video cable or a cable longer than usual like 8 feet or more. Also is your monitor plugged into the same outlet as the computer, and is the case on your computer as all are possible reasons for your problem. Some times adding a ground wire from monitor to computer can correct problem. This can be a problem that takes some real detective work to find, and all I can do is suggest some possible causes.

Try your monitor on another computer, just to make sure it's the monitor and not a video adapter problem in the computer. It may be possible to fix it if you can find a reliable computer or TV service shop nearby. However, the cost may not be worth it for a 2-year old monitor. Unfortunately, the best solution is probably to buy a new one. : (

Good picture for 30 seconds then screen goes black with a faint ghost of the image


the 12V is for speakers.. the 245bw takes regular 120V AC (same cord as your computer)

the buzzing is annoying, though. i don't know if it's a "feature" or just a side effect.. ie, if i could take the case off and poke around, i would. 4 times out of 5 it's some dumb piece of tin reverberating from a transformer or something..
