Question about Mitsubishi Diamond Plus 73 17" CRT Monitor

Mitsubishi monitor is distorting the picture

I have a mitsubishi Diamon plus 73. About 5-6 years old Last night when i turned it on the image on the screen was shrunk. Although the width was approximately the same ( albeit bulging down the sides) its height had shrunk from both the upper and lower edges. another way to describe this is that it almost appeared wide screen with large black bars at the top and the bottom. None of the image was lost it was just squashed into this space i was considering opening up the case myself to have a look for a loose wire or something. I hav efound that if i place my hand on top of the monitor and wiggle the screen returns to normal. I have tried wiggle the 2 cables at the back of the monitor but they dont really seem to be the cause. So perhaps there is a component situated above the tube and between the case? Any tips on what to look for? PLus any tips on how to open the case as there dont appear to be any screws? amd i dont want to damage it. Thanks

Re: Mitsubishi monitor is distorting the picture

Well first af all ,you never find this "loose wire" because it is a mith. what you have is a "cold solder" in the vertical IC, if you have a solder iron , and the ability to open it (without scratching), and then take off all the shields (without cutting your fingers), and get the solder area (without breaking the Tube). at this time ,it take you 1 minute to solve...!!! iF not... leave it to the repairman!!!.

Your monitor is overheated and has blown the tube. The only way to fix it is to throw it away and get a new one. Your not supposed to leave your monitor on all the time especially with a game just paused on the screen.

Monitor problem

The reason I had asked if you had tried a different monitor was to determine if it was the monitor or the computer that actually had the problem. That wasn't clear in the first question.
A computer that is having issues will cause the same symptoms you described.
Repairing CRT's is beyond my level of expertise. When I get into a situation like this, I would just replace the monitor. Sorry I couldn't have been more help.
I stopped using CRT's when the price of LCD's dropped.

Horizontal/Vertical Postion of Image on LCD Monitor

the controls for focus adjustment are on the flyback transformer, (that big black thing on the left hand side (usually) of the monitor with the thick red wire that goes to the CRT.) the flyback may have 1,2,3 or even 4 knobs on it. 3 of these would be labled SCREEN (bottom knob of flyback. handles brightness)
FOCUS 1 + FOCUS 2 (focus adjustments. these are what you need to play with) and the 4th knob (some old mitsubishi workstation monitors had these) i do not know, it wasnt labled and HV adjustment was on the deflection board

Red CRT monitor

Yes, absolutely know that one. It is a problem with the hardware in your monitor. I had the very same problem, there is no tuning or anything else thats going to fix it. Hopefully, you are still under warranty, well since it's six years old probably not. Since LCD flatpanel have dropped dramtically in price, I suggest you get a new LCD. The cost and trouble to fix it just isn't worth it. Best.
