Cameras on monitor look blurry Qs408

Note this system uses VGA quality images so will not be as sharp has HD cameras. Also, due to the number of cameras, you frame rate may suffer. If you are not using a flat panel monitor, try that to see if the quality is better.

My screen has become blurry but you can still make the words out,it started with a thick blue line now its got worse

Hardware failure. To find out which part has failed - the screen or the video card - just try to use another monitor or tv . If the image is the same then it's the video card, if it's good it's the monitor.

I have an Onkyo TX-SR702E that no longer projects blue when I try to play a DVD. It is not the DVD player because we have tried two different DVD players with it, and the outcome is the same. Films have...

Well, although it may be the receiver, it may may be your video monitor. I looked over the manual on line for your unit. The connections to your receiver going to your video monitor (i.e. projection, or flat screen, etc. are of a "pass-through" type specifically for the video images. That is not the case with the audio side. In other words your Onkyo passes (or patches through) video signals without altering them. It is so that you don't need to a lot of remote controls to enjoy being entertained.
It could be a problem with the mechanical relays that do the switching or it is directly in the video monitor or TV.
Here is a simple diagnostic procedure for checking this. You may have already done this. Simply take video (yellow) single cable and yellow output from the DVD player and connect it to the yellow Video one or Video 2 inputs directly on your Monitor or projector and see if it is showing a pink image or a natural one. You don't even have to connect up the audio.
If it is still pink. It's the the video monitor, (TV)
If the color is correct, then it's the receiver switching circuitry . Considering the base quality of the receiver, it is worth servicing.
If you have any question feel free to get back to me through this site.
Here is a link to your owner's manual.,602_En_C.pdf?CFID=1396296&CFTOKEN=48521992&jsessionid=f030d40da2752b8d3dcd3b1b40fe67769c1f

My monitor in blurry and has a pink tinge to it. I can click a button on the side and bring up a box that says brightness, contrast, sharpness,etc- but I can't move off the brightness to change to other...

Use the LEFT and RIGHT arrows (or UP and DOWN arrows)
on your monitor to move between the different items (brightness, contrast, etc.)

However, "pink" is generated when your computer tries to generate "white" (mixing red, blue, green) but one of these 3 "primary" colours is not being generated.

Try your monitor on a different computer, to see if the "pink" is due to your monitor, or due to the video-card on your computer, or due to the data-cable between your monitor and your computers.

Blurring of images and text

mt, the 6 to 8 lines you were seeing were most likley the prelude to the end of the monitor. If the problem only occurs when the screen saver comes on then I could say the driver maybe being corrupted by a certain screensaver picture or program. When the monitor warms up to a certain temprature the electronics start to fail. You may want to turn off the monitor while your not right in front of it to cool it down and prolong its use.
