Re: Screen not smooth in the sides and corners

Hi there, 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: Bad Points 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 regards

If your picture wasn't pinkish or dark at the top or bottom when it was working, then it may be the inverter has gone bad. Inverters are like light bulbs and have life expectancies on the capacitors.
If your picture was pinkish or dark at the top or bottom when it was working then you may have 1 or more of the bulbs failing.

To get to the inverter:
Remove the stand.
Take the screws out of the bottom rear edge (these hold the front trim)
The the trim then unsnaps. {Be aware of the wire to the power button board on the bottom corner}
Start at the bottom and release the trim by lifting away from the glass of the screen from the center outwards to the corners, then work your way up each side bottom to top (a pocket knife or thin putty knife will help release the catches) These sides can be really tough to pop off especially the last top clip on each side.
Then unsnap the top edge (rocking it while lifting helps)
Disconnect the power button plug or unsrew the screws.
Once trim is off, remove the 4 corner screws that hold the screen in. Then the screen will lift up.
unplug the bulbs and wire to the screen (screen plug that goes into the metal case pulls out)
then the inverter is under the center area under the metal cover
Shout if you need more info.
If you email me a good picture of the inverter , I may be able to get a better idea if it is the inverter from a visual.

Monitor sizes are measured on the diagonal from corner to corner.

A 17" LCD may have a screen width of 12 inches measured from side to side.

If you are measuring a old style CRT monitor (Cathode Ray tube) the visible screen area will be about an inch less as there is about 1/2 inch of plastic frame holding the CRT in the chassis. The manufacturer can advertise the actual size of the screen regardless of how much is actually visible to display information.

If you are talking about software not utilizing all the available screen area to display the image, that is an issue with the people writing the software code not keeping up with the changes in hardware.

In the past year or two, most displays have switched to the 16:9 and 16:10 wide aspect ratios while most web content is still written for the 4:3 old style aspect ratio. Eventually, software developers will catch up with cusrrent hardware.

White Sharp Horizontal Streak on Center Screen

Hello RepairKid,

Although it's difficult to pinpoint which solder point(s) are the cause of a problem of this nature, the use of a magnifying glass will help you determine which solder point(s) look "irregular" compared to the other ones. Look for cracks or pits across the solder point and re-solder once found. Sometimes a hairline of solder is shorting out two points and again is might not be possible possible to see without magnification. If you don't notice any irregular solder points, a component could be causing the problem (like a very dirty/oxidized potentiometer or a cracked discrete / SMD). Let me know if this helps.

LG Flatron 775FT monitor distortion

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 :( Good Luck!
