Re: Non crispy display
Six to seven years is about the usual life of a picture tube, and then you start seeing signs of aging. Poor focus is one common symptom (the loss of crispness you noticed). There is an internal focus adjustment, but it usually can't compensate for the tube. If you want to try it, the control is on a part called the flyback transformer. It's usually found on a rear corner of the circuit board, and has a red wire going to a rubber contact cap on the picture tube. Most flybacks have two little knobs on them, and you want to tweak the one marked "FOCUS" a little to see if improves the picture. BE VERY CAREFUL! WITH THE POWER ON THERE ARE POSSIBLY LETHAL VOLTAGES EXPOSED!
If the focus adjustment doesn't help enough, it's time to look for a sale on an LCD monitor. The prices have come way down, and eBay is a great place to look for deals if you don't want to buy new.

Hi, when connected to a portable you sometime must hold function key then press F5 or F6 to switch between the portable screen and the aux monitor, have you tried the monitor with another computer. If this does not work, it might require internal repairs...
I'm going through the same thing with a Dell 1905FP - it has 3 bulging capacitors on the Power Supply/Inverter board, and I suspect they are the culprits. At first it delayed a few seconds to start (green power light flashing in all situation), then it took about 10 minutes, then delayed about 45 minutes, then went all the way to about 6 hours - all within a week. When it did come up after the delay, it was perfect. Now it won't come up at all....
It's out of warranty, Dell will have nothing to do with replacing this common failing board, and the replacement board is $50 from an online LCD repair shop.
I'm trying the capacitor replacement tomorrow - they're about 25 cents each... it's worth a try.
There's an internal hardware problem in your monitor, possibly cold soldered or defective electronic part/s. please bring the unit to an authorized service center for proper diagnosis & repair of the unit. best regards
go to http://www.Lg.com support drivers you need to check for you model make serial and windows tipe if you can not get it from there you can go to http://www.driversguide.com fill out the registration and go to the LG monitor and look for your model serial and windows system
i've done a bit of research about your monitor apparently this model is not very reliable and has all sorts of common problems including yours here's what some people said about it:
Extremely unreliable. Over a 2 year period I have had to replace 6 out of 20 monitors
Main problem, the image degrades to the point where any text in the centre of the screen is difficult to read.
this monitor has a blurry corner right bottom corner and a bit of a whole right section.. and its out of focus constrast is like not on full and correct and identical to the left side.. left side is crisp and perfect.. also it takes bit of time to correct the display in the screen position and pincusion, the convergence isnt impressive at all.. anyways this is what you get from cheap monitors and BTW this is made in Indonesia, i am not flaming on the country, i am just saying this monitor isnt tested or not in quality as samsung flat monitors or sony. i am disappointed on LG for the first time, well if you really consider buying this monitor, you must check the monitor screen or something if it is correct. so you dont have to cry after you came all the way back home with it..
looks like a lot of people are not happy with this monitor.
just replace it they are not expensive nowadays
Doesn't look very good :(
You can try returning to the "factory settings" in your monitor's menu. Maybe try the monitor in another computer to check whether your graphics card is faulty.
But all in all it looks like a fault from the monitor :(
maybe ur screen was put into a lot of magnetic interference. so check for any magnetic rays emitting devices like speaker adapters etc. a simple check would be to degauss( its in the screen properties).
