Question about ViewSonic VA2012WB Monitor

Open Question

Monitor Warping the left and right sides

So I have a 20.1" widescreen monitor (from ViewSonic) and I connected it with my Xbox 360 to play videogames. But I've noticed that whenever something is near the edge of the screen (left or right) they get warped. Its as if everything in the very center of the screen is correct, but the farther you get from the middle. the more stretched things become. For example, a circle in the center of the screen will start stretching into an oval the farther from the center it travels. Is there any way to fix this problem?

Tricky one. Have you tried using different dispay resolutions from your Windows Display Control Panel?
ie 1200x1014, 1600x1400, etc.

When you say you used the manual adjust, do you mean the horizontal sync option?

Did you perform a Settings Recall?

And most monitors have a way of entering into an engineering "Factory Service Menu". Usually by depressing specific buttons while the monitor is OFF, and then pressing the power button while still holding the others. Then let all button go at once. From there, hit the normal button that you use for getting into the OSD. In the OSD, there's usually a new field with all kinds of cool new settings to play with. One of them being a soft reset. You'll have to search the net for how to enter into your Factory service menu.

Oh wait! I know!
If your picture has moved to the right, move yourself accordingly.
So that now you and your picture will be aligned properly.

He he he...
Kidding!
That one was from ViewSonic customer support.

It is probably the power supply, or the inverters.

Similar problem with solution, though it requires you to know something about electronics.

Hi!
there are possible reasons why your monitor shows nothing on your screen...

First, you need to check if the power cable of your monitor is well connected to a wall socket or AVR (and that you are sure there is supply output current on the AVR or in the wall outlet)

IF found that power cable is fix and secure... my suggestion is you bring the monitor to a credible technician...Because the possible reason why only black is seen on your screen, is because the backlight inverter could be busted already.. the backlight inverter which is located on the upper and lower back edge of the monitor is the light source responsible for giving image display of your lcd monitor.. Another reason could be is a deffective high voltage ballast transformer which is responsible for generating high votlage supply for the backlight....

It is too risky for you to do the repair by yourself without proper knowledge and right tools to do this.. So don't waste time consult a technician and or possible avail of the warranty if there is any...

Hope it is clear now to you..


Much appreciated if you rate this help.. thanks..

How get sound on viewsonic VA2446m?


Plug the audio cable from the PC to the audio input jack on the back of the unit. Then make sure audio volume is turned up on the PC side. The monitor also has a volume control setting. Make sure to have a value greater than 1 to hear anything.

My Acer S200hl monitor suddenly has horizontal white lines on the screen. It gradually fades from very severe lines on the right side to virtually unnoticalbe lines on the left. Any ideas?


It's dying. Pretty much simply that, something electrical or electronic (connections from panel to panel edge connectors, connection to circuit board, or internal to a panel matrix chip). Very likely unserviceable, if under warranty, take it back for service. Only other thing, check connector under back of monitor (if it has a connector at both ends). It's an Acer monitor, they aren't terribly durable, so if it's more than 2 or 3 years old, it's probably on it's way to deadville.

We have a Viewsonic VX2235wm Black 22" Widescreen We have been experiencing a Grey shadow to the right - damn annoying. Can you please help.


There are "on-screen controls" (electronic) on the monitor and can adjust the screen "position" up-down, left-right, wider-narrower and perhaps twist; clockwise-counter clockwise).
Try that and see if it removes the grey (empty?) area.

It is definetly a widescreen the issue is either with your display card or your resolution setting you need to check both. If you would have told me wether your display is through mother board or scsi card the model of mother board or the display card then i could fix the issue easilly.

Voltage / connection


Refresh rate cannot hurt a monitor. Besides, on modern monitors, if the mode is not supported the monitor will just shut down.

One of the vertical output transistors has failed. This is a common failure on cheap monitors.
