Samsung LD220 - background (plain blue) has continuous horizontal wavy lines that move up the screen. As if straight water ripples are going up screen. But, pop-up windows display fine since they are...

There may be a few issues her, try changing the contrast andbrightness of the screen, this can be done by using the buttons on the monitor,check any documentation you have if you're having trouble. If this doesn't fix it could be a monitor problem for your videocard itself. Try using another monitor,if possible, to test your video card or try your monitor on another pc/laptop. If the monitor works fine on another machine then chancesare it's a problem with your video card, it may even need replacing.

Signal outof range

  • Make sure the pins on the video cable are not bent or damaged.
  • Make sure there are no extension cables or switch boxes attached to the monitor.
  • Verify that you have the proper drivers installed for the video card.
  • Verify the problem at all possible resolutions and refresh rates.
  • Make sure the refresh rate does not exceed maximum value for any resolution.
  • Test the monitor on a different computer.
  • Contrast is recommended to be set at a higher range while the brightness should be set at middle range. This helps to increase the text clarity while reducing the bright background.
  • If your monitor is equipped with moire control, adjusting this may improve the clarity of the text. Moire is a wavy distortion pattern caused by interference between the dot pitch of the CRT and the picture signal. The pattern may vary depending on the screen amplitude, contrast, brightness, and other characteristics of the input signal.
  • Monitor's performance may be affected by the Earth's magnetic field. Try rotating the monitor to different directions to improve misconvergence.
  • Most video cards offer a software utility that changes the frequencies and sync polarities for all resolutions. If the setup does not match with the monitor's characteristics, an incorrect signal may be displayed on the screen. Sometimes, the image may also appear blurry.

    Try to use Cntl+Alt+Arrow keys to rotate the screen. Also go to display settings and change the monitor DPI setting will also resolve your problem.

    The picture my monitor has a wavy effect and I've tried to get it back "square". What do I do?

    kdoran121, Some component part has failed inside your monitor!! Possible verticle drive signal is "bleeding" into the horizontal signal is causing your "wavy effect" to occur on screen. Electronic technician will need to troubleshoot problem down to "component level" to solve monitor problem. That's my best guess on this one. You could try to swap-in a known good monitor to your pc, just to prove that the monitor is the problem and NOT your pc!!! Yes, I still have a 9 year old CRT monitor connected to another pc and if and when it FAILS, I will send it to the curb on trash-day!!! 12fixlouie

    Heat from monitor

    The monitor,screen,adapter or display of a computer is the primary user interface. Monitor problems are some of the most common computer problems since the voltages inside a monitor can be as high as 10 KV. Many of the problems can be fixed yourself by simply changing the settings but in a few cases you may have to either replace or repair the monitor.
    google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad); How to troubleshoot and fix computer monitor/display problems
    1. The monitor/display flickers
    Check the refresh rate. If the refresh rate is 50 Hz/ 60Hz (depending on which country you stay), it can be affected by interference from electrical power signals like those from fluorescent lamps . Increasing the refresh rate to 72Hz is recommended , since higher refresh rates reduce eyestrain and headaches
    2. The display works fine initially, then after some time there are black lines on the screen and then the display disappears
    There is a problem with the copper windings in the CRT monitor which are getting heated. It is better to replace the monitor
    3. For a new monitor, you get a blank screen or distorted image.
    Many monitors, especially LCD monitors, can only handle resolutions which are less than the native resolution, so set the resolution at the native resolution only. The native resolution of a LCD display is lower for smaller LCD screen sizes, typically 1024 X 768 for 15" LCD. CRT monitors have a better resolution than LCD displays
    4. The display on the monitor is not steady
    This is a result of power system interference from users of the power grid, particularly UPS, power tools and heavy machinery. Try changing the position of the monitor.

    5. There is a shadow on the images on the display
    Try reducing the contrast setting on your monitor.
    6. Monitor becomes blank occasionally
    Could be a problem with the display card, check with another monitor. The monitor display cord and power cable should be fixed properly and there should be no loose connection.
    7. Dark Spots on the Screen.
    Move speakers,USB modem and other magnetic devices away from the monitor.
    8. Incorrect Colors - red may become dark brown, blue becomes purple.
    Check your video cables and connectors for bent or broken pins and wires. Sometimes there may be a problem with your display card, which can be retuned using a software available with monitor technicians.
    9. Run Antivirus to scan corrupt software files.Virus cause distorted characters and images.
    10. Set your monitor/display pixels to the software requirements. some softwares require higher pixels to run or to be displayed. some media players, web applications, video games applications and photo editors/view softwares have option to view photos on low or high quality

    I have waves on my screen, what do I need to do to get rid of them?

    you don't say whether your monitor is crt/tft....

    either type the problem is likely to be refresh rate of the monitor...

    try this... (xp pro sp2)

    1. Open Display in Control Panel.
    2. On the Settings tab, click Advanced.
    3. On the Monitor tab, in the Refresh Frequency list, click a new refresh rate
    • To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display.
    • The default refresh frequency setting is 100 Hertz, although your monitor may support a higher setting. Check your manufacturer's documentation for information regarding the settings your monitor supports.
    • A higher refresh frequency reduces any flicker on your screen, but choosing a setting that is too high for your monitor can make your display unusable and cause damage to your hardware.
    • Changes to the refresh frequency affect all users that log on to the computer.
    good luck, rate if useful please

    Monitor displays verticle coloured lines when turned on

    As i understood the explanation you have a problem with the Video card not the LG Monitor.

    Verticle blue lines, left side

    Your Display cable (inside your monitor) needs to be replaced.

    I would look on ebay to try and find the part and then take it to a local tech to replace it for you as I would not recommend anyone take apart a monitor (LCD OR CRT) if you had never done so before.

    OR, Buy a new one.

    No clear picture just wavy lines and error message

    The spec sheet I found says your monitor should be able to display 1280 x 1024, 720 x 350, 720 x 400 and four other resolutions in the 640 x .... range which are pretty useless. Try setting ti to 1280 x 1024 at 16 million colors @ 60 Hz and let us know what happens.
