Hp 2010i monitor shaky, can't find degauss option

I have an HP 2010i monitor and sometimes the screen gets shaky. I restart the computer and sometimes that works, but sometimes it just comes back. I read online that I should degauss the monitor, and that the button to do this should fall under the menu button found on the monitor, but it's not there, I checked the entire menu. Help?

I don't think degaussing your monitor is going to help with this issue. Degaussing mainly addresses color correction around the monitor edges due to a magnetic field and applies to CRT monitors not LCD monitors which yours is. If by your term "shaky" you mean the image is unstable, then the problem is either in the main board which controls the X Y sync or with the power supply board. If you are knowledgeable with electronics you could probably repair this at home for $40 or less. If not then I would shop for another monitor to replace yours. Don't throw your old monitor away, instead post it for sale on craigslist. There are a lot of do it yourself type people who will buy this either for parts or to repair and resell. I don't know what it will bring as far as cash, might be $40 might be $5 but anything is better than zero.

Switch off and on your PC and hold down the F5 key and this should bring up your PC in Safe Mode. If this fails, then find a PC repair shop to replace the power supply.

SOURCE: CANNOT REMOVE THE OSD MAIN MENU FROM MONITOR SCREEN

Hi,
The problem of OSD Menus popping up automatically are usually caused due to a faulty switch in the Menu button which is getting switched on automatically.

This menu will not harm the computer but constant OSD menu will most probably lead to permanent damage to the pixels in the LCD screen plus it is a constant irritation to your eyes which are most precious.

This problem can be rectified by replacing the faulty menu switch. Hope this solves your problem Thanks.

Shivering screen


Shaking or trembling of a computer screen is often caused by interference from another device that is within a couple feet.
It can also be caused by another monitor close by.
If the removal of these objects does not stop the trembling, the monitor may have built up magnetism and need to be degaussed.
Find the menu button for your monitor.
This is usually on the front of the monitor.
It is sometimes on the side of the monitor.
Push the menu button. Scroll down until you find the screen option.
Select "Screen."
Scroll down to the degauss option.
Select "Degauss."
Select "OK."
The screen will make a tuning sound, as if you hit a guitar string.
The screen will shake and vibrate.
The shaking should now be gone.
If it is not, it will need to be looked at by a professional.

I just inherited (literally) a virtually new eMachine 786N monitor. I say, "new" because the previous owner probably logged no more that 100-200 hours on the thing. Hooked it uop to my HP...


Sounds like symptoms that the monitor needed to be degaussed (pronounced "Dee' Gowsed"),
and, since most modern (conventional CRT) monitors will degauss themselves upon power-up,
it looks like your restart addressed the problem.

Usually, a CRT that need to be degaussed will develop blurring at the edges first, but its possible
that the monitor was affected by stray magnetic field(s) over time, and failed to successfully
degauss at initial startup (the degaussing circuit won't necessarily succeed the first time if a large magnetic field has built up).

Here's your wikipedia entry on the concept:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Degaussing

Here's a how-to, in case you want to (or end up needing to) do it manually:

Screen turns like a blueish color???


Hi,

This is because of the degauss error. If its a CRT monitor, please try to degauss it yourself, if you have the option in the monitor, else, take it to the nearest service station and ask them to degauss it.

This would help..

Regards,

Computer display jumbled and unreadable


From what you describe, I'd suspect the Graphics processor, or even the motherboard as a source of the problem if the monitor works on a different system normally (Best way to check the monitor is a known good video source)

If it is the system, and the system is 8 years old, I'd recommend replacing the system rather than attempting to fix it. Trying to fix GOOD parts for an obsolete system is difficult at bst and oftern can be expensive. Often you can find a low end NEW system (One that is like 20 times faster than the failing system) for less than $300
