Question about Proview PL926WBi 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Wavy lines, goes black during video games.

The screen has a lot of flickery wavy lines that appear when just running typical applications, internet explorer, etc. When playing a video game, even at the suggested 1440x900 resolution, the video goes black (used to come back and go out again quickly, now doesn't come back at all). It does come back if the video game is minimized or closed using alt-tab or w/e. The odd thing is, even when a video game is ran in windowed mode, when the video comes back it comes back as if it's just switched video modes (it auto adjusts itself to the 'new' mode). Video card temp is normal, the monitor behaves the same way on multiple machines, and a different monitor works properly without flaw on the original machine. Thanks in advance, Mythics

    The monitor supports 60-75mhz, and I've tried multiple resolutions and multiple refresh rates. It's also not a single game that causes the issue, but any game (that I have at least).

    The refresh rate shouldn't be an issue considering the same effect happens even when the game is ran in windowed mode as I previously stated (refresh rates only change when a game is taken to full-screen mode).

    Games I have known to work in the past under their preset resolutions/refresh rates are causing the same issues.

It sounds to me like the monitor's refresh rate is too low to support your current settings, and the demands of the game. Have you tried adjusting the refresh rate? If I'm right, you should be able to fix the wavy lines that way. I'm not sure how much control over the refresh rate the game takes, but if you can fix the wavy lines and the game still doesn't work, I think you're not likely to get the game to work on this monitor.

    My mistake. I was thinking, since you said it was coming back when a game was running in windowed mode, that the game in question was, for some reason, changing your video settings even in windowed mode. I have seen that happen with a handful of games. I didn't realize you meant it happened with every game.

    The only other thing I could suggest then is to update your monitor drivers. I found some drivers for that model on driverguide.
    http://members.driverguide.com/driver/de...

    You do have to sign up to download their drivers, but it's a painless process and they don't spam you. Actually, it's a very good site, one of the first places I go if I need a driver for anything.

    If that doesn't help, then I'm stumped. I suppose it could be a fault with the monitor itself, though if it is there's not really much I can do about that anyway.

Mitsubishi rearTV has intermittent wavy lines running throughout


Do you have anything to test it in 1080i? Does it do it on all connections or just one? I had a similar problem with my TV that turned out to be a bad input board. Mine would only display 1080i through the Component connections. All others would show pink and green wavy lines. It cost me around 500 to fix it. Unplug the TV. Remove the back cover for the TV. Using a NON-metal object, or gloves, wiggle the input board (that has all the video connections on it) slowly back and forth and see if the problem comes and goes. You will have to have someone watching for you. If something is loose on that board, the problem should show itself. Narrowing down the problem will probably save you money on repair bills.
