The adjustments you need to make are for the screen geometry. I haven't been able to locate a manual, so I can't tell you exactly how to access them. Usually there is a menu button that brings up the adjustments, and a couple more (usually marked + and -) to go through the choices and change the settings. A fourth button enters your choice. On some monitors there may be an adjustment knob/button combination. Press the knob to enter, and turn the knob left or right to adjust and choose.

Having said all that, what you want is called the pincushion setting. When set properly the image will be square. Improper settings cause the edges to bow in or out. Depending on how many adjustments your grandkid messed up, you may have to go through some other settings as well. Most monitors have adjustments for:

- vertical and horizontal position and size
- pincushion (adjust for the straightest top and bottom edges)
- trapezoid (also called keystone) which adjusts the top and bottom widths in opposite directions (adjust for the same length)
- parallelogram which adjusts the top and bottom positions in opposite directions (adjust so the sides are straight up and down)

There may a few other choices, but the previous ones have the most effect. There may be a choice in the menu to reset everything to midrange. If so, take it and then use the adjustments to fine-tune if necessary.

It sounds like the edges of the video displayed are looking like they are curved in/out? I'm racking my brain trying to remember the terms used on CRT monitors and all I can come up with is elliptical? It has been awhile since I have messed with one. In any event, start pressing the buttons on the display working from left to right. You should hit the Main Menu right away. Generally speaking, there should be a factory reset function as a last choice. If you see that, highlight it and hit the accept button (it's the one you pressed to get to that screen). In the event you don't come across that, look for a Positioning choice and enter that screen. Your choices are generally a + or - for each setting. Press away on each choice increasing or decreasing until you find the correct settings you're looking for. If you're unsure of how to get out of a choice, do nothing for a few seconds and the screen will default back. Let me know if I need to clarify anything or you need a little more help. Grandkids are pesky but I've always found them worth it!

My westinghouse monitor won't align on the screen. i have tried auto adjust already and it is still missaligned.


Ok, with the Auto adjust, but have you actually tried the buttons that actually manually adjust the screen, size, placement, width, height etc, This will allow you complete control over all aspects of your monitor. You usually select, menu, then step through with one button, and change up, down, side to side, with the left & right buttons.

Monitor Built in Speaker Problm


Hi shah. It is most likely that the speaker's transformer is burnt. If its under warranty then the showroom guys should fix it for you as its covered under warranty. Otherwise you will need to take it apart remove the old transformer and install a new one. I strongly advise "if you are not familiar with electricals then better take the assistance of a qualified engineer".

Compaq P110 21" CRT Monitor that is blurry in the middle of the screen and clear and crisp on the edge


As a result of aging monitor alignments drift, giving rise a a myriad of odd symptoms. Open the monitor up (of course it's got to be off), locate the scanning coils on the neck of the tube. Right there on are disk-shaped permanent alignment magnets. The scanning coils are electromagnets that produce the raster (scanning pattern), while the low-strenght permanent magnets allow the alignment to be varied ever so finely. Chances are that this alignment has drifted. Reconnect and turn on the monitor and with something being displayed, turn the disks one-by-one, observing the effect on the screen (a large mirror in front of the monitor would help much). Note that normally the disks are secured at the factory using hot glue. You may want to warm up the glue before starting the re-adjustment to make it easier to turn the disks. I am quite certain that this will solve your problem.

Actually pin 4 is supposed to be missing, that's normal. What you should do is try these troubleshooting techniques: 1. Do you get a no signal on the monitor screen. If so, there can be something wrong with the computer or you can have a short in the cord. 2. Try connecting the monitor to another computer. If it works then you've found your problem. If not, consider purchasing a new monitor. Especially if it's a CRT, because they carry some really high voltage that will harm you if you don't know what you're doing.

Nokia Monitor Multigraph 447Za - Speaker/Microphone Volume control not working


The electrical contact surfaces under the rubber buttons lose contact over time. I don't know if it's corrosion or some kind of build up. I fixed mine by disassembling the monitor, removing the button panel and cleaning the contacts with a pencil eraser. It works great now. The monitor is a real bear to take apart though. There are four hidden spring tabs on the sides of the bezel that are impossible to see. I groped with a very thin screwdriver blade and finally got them to release, but not without chipping some of the plastic.
