Shadowing of text

My monitor now displays a faint shadowing behind all of the text and images on the screen which makes it really tiring to read and use. I have had the monitor for 18months and this has happened in the last 2 weeks. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for your help.

This may help...SIMPLE ! The "shadowing" you talk about is due to cables in back of your computer, touching or too close together. I had this happen to mine. I moved the cables apart, and no more shadows !! Sounds too easy, but it works. Takes a few seconds. Immediate results.

YOU ARE EXPERIENCING THE EFFECT OF GHOSTING.
iT CAN BE FIXED

cREATE A 1200X1600 100% WHITE .GIF TO USE AS A SCREEN SAVER. (IN WINDOWS YOU CAN ADD IT TO MY PICTURES SLIDESHOW)

Set this slide show to run after 2 minutes of non use.
Set the nonitor to power off in a short amount of non use.
say 15 minutes.
Do that for a couple of days and the ghosting affect will go away . You can then turn to a more reasonable screen saver.

I received this information from www.beginnercode.com

'Shadows' behind all texts and images on the screen


[u][b]LCD Monitor Shadow Effect[/b][/u]
This problem is best described as the LCD monitor "Shadow Effect".
The solution to this very simple. No software or hard ware changes required.
The cables that are connected to the LCD monitors are causing the problem. Its also called as electromagnetic noise or electrical noise.
[u][b]Solution: [/b][/u]Keep the two cables - (power cable and moitor display cable), that are connected to the LCD monitor as far away as possible with each other and also away from other electrical cables.
Thats it. Your shadow effect is fixed.
Thank you.

Samsung 931B monitor - shadowing


I have the same monitor, and twice I've experienced this exact problem. In my case, the video connectors have relaxed. If I wiggle the cable, I can make it better or worse, so it's time to disconnect, reseat. I don't know if it will work for you, but it's free!

Double Images / Shadows on the monitor screen


I read through other solutions to this problem because I had the same problem. I checked to make sure electrical cords were properly attached, and vola! problem solved! I had no idea this problem could be fixed just by checking the cord connections. Thanks a million for posting this solution. I had been putting up with the shadowing, streaking for months! You really made my day.

Shadowing


Has a shadowing problem where everything on the screen was shadowing to the right. Did basic troubleshooting techniques and found that it was due to a loose connection to the computer. You may want to check this if resetting to factory settings doesn't help.

Samsung monitor has "streaks"


LaurieEm posted a solution which seems to work for me (in addition to some other stuff, read my problem description) for this here http://www.fixya.com/users/laurieem

Try re-plugging your LCD monitor's VGA connection. It may be a case of corrosion on the pins or bad puggin of the cable. The problem is also reduced by using compressed air to blow out the cicuitry in the back of the monitor to remove dust. Both of these seem to work, and if you can't solve the problem totally with one, try the other one as well.

Shadows and Ghosts on the Screen


Plugged up display via the VGA cable to an HP dv6000 laptop; the Acer powered up and displayed fine ... however, noticed a faint waving motion in the picture, as if the screen was literally gel and began to wave, from top to bottom as it appeared. Best I can describe it ... any suggestions as to why? I only connected it to this HP to try it out, I ordered it from newegg and wanted to make sure pixels werent dead on arival. I will be getting an Aurora 7500 (Alienware): AMD X2 6000, Windows Vista Premium, 2GB RAM, GeForce 512 8800GT, SLI ready motherboard ... I heard good things of Acer and hoped this display would look great with my soon-to-come setup and im sure it will. However, just nervous it will do this on my Aurora. Any help or suggestions would be beyond appreciated!!
