Question about Philips 170S7FS 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Text on screen trailing to the right

This is a very weird problem. My screen text and images, etc are all creating a shadow type effect with a trailing to the right. The problem is even more when reading a text document because the text is all smudged and one character shadow/trail overlaps the next.

I've tried a lot of things, but I don't know how to solve it. Sometimes it just solves itself and things are fine, but now it is getting more and more frequent.

Please help!!!

Check the VGA plug and lead between the monitor and computer.

Does it get worse or better while you move the lead around?

I am trying to create a poster for a fundraiser. I can get as far as creating the legal size of it, but then I do not know how to put the 4 pictures onto it and then move them around and resize them. I...


Howdy, here's my 4c worth.

After you have your legal size image ready then go to file > Open > the_file_you need.jpg
Gimp will open it in another window.

just hold CTRL down then press A while still holding CTRL to select All the image
then hold CTRL down then press C to Copy it
Go back to your blank page and hold CTRL down then press V to Paste it.
This step is weird but necessary, in the Layers panel it will have a new layer called "floating selection" or similar. just right click on it and select new layer...
the copied image will be pasted into the new one as a new layer (so you can edit it independently)

To resize it, look at the tools (on the left) panel and select the Scale tool (hover your mouse over each tool to see what it is called). once you have it selected then click anywhere on the image you wish to resize. then it will go into Scale mode where you can "grab" the corners with the mouse and stretch it to your liking. if you wish to keep the Aspect ratio (so it dosn't look stretched and warped) hold CTRL and SHIFT at the same time whist resizing.

And finally the Text!

Click on the A (text tool) in the tools panel.
Click and drag your mouse on the image to create a "text box" (the actual text you type is in a separate little box, but you can edit the color, font, size, etc.. later by clicking the A (text tool) and then clicking on the solid part of a text layer.)

Hope this rambling was of some use.

Text has a new, trailing shadow to the right


Try opening system prefrences, you can access this from the apple menu top left or from the dock. Go to displays and se if you are using the best profile for the montor. This is odd, usually like you said this is a crt timing problem. Work in prefrence and change the size and brightness.

'Shadows' behind all texts and images on the screen


[u][b]LCD Monitor Shadow Effect[/b][/u]
This problem is best described as the LCD monitor "Shadow Effect".
The solution to this very simple. No software or hard ware changes required.
The cables that are connected to the LCD monitors are causing the problem. Its also called as electromagnetic noise or electrical noise.
[u][b]Solution: [/b][/u]Keep the two cables - (power cable and moitor display cable), that are connected to the LCD monitor as far away as possible with each other and also away from other electrical cables.
Thats it. Your shadow effect is fixed.
Thank you.

How can i line the lights up in my sony kp-61hs10.


I'm going to assume that the "lights" are images on the screen that seem to have a multi colored shadow. Within the menu there's a choice for convergence, when selected this gives a white cross centered in the screen. Using the arrow keys on the remote (left-right for vertical movement and up/down for horizontal) you will adjust the color that is "shadowing" or get all the colors aligned so the white cross has no trailing red or blue either horizontally or vertically. If you can't get it to adjust or there is no effect then repair is probably the only option.

I need to have a mirror image of text in power point .


If you are using PowerPoint 2007, here is how you can accomplish this:
Select the text, Then right click and select Format Shape, Then select 3-D Rotation, then change the X value to 190 degrees.
In PowerPoint 2003, you can't create mirrored text,, you can however use WordArtto create a graphic image of text that you can mirror by using the Rotate or Flip command.
To create mirrored text with WordArt, follow these steps:
  1. On the Drawing toolbar, click Insert WordArt.
  2. In the WordArt Gallery, select the WordArt style that is closest to the effect that you want to use, and then click OK.
  3. In the Edit WordArt Text dialog box, type the text that you want.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Use the tools on the Drawing and WordArt toolbars to format the text the way that you want.
  6. On the Drawing toolbar, click Draw, point to Rotate Or Flip, and then click Flip Horizontal.
You will see a mirror image of your text.

Samsung 931B monitor - shadowing


I have the same monitor, and twice I've experienced this exact problem. In my case, the video connectors have relaxed. If I wiggle the cable, I can make it better or worse, so it's time to disconnect, reseat. I don't know if it will work for you, but it's free!

Shadowing of text


YOU ARE EXPERIENCING THE EFFECT OF GHOSTING.
iT CAN BE FIXED

cREATE A 1200X1600 100% WHITE .GIF TO USE AS A SCREEN SAVER. (IN WINDOWS YOU CAN ADD IT TO MY PICTURES SLIDESHOW)

Set this slide show to run after 2 minutes of non use.
Set the nonitor to power off in a short amount of non use.
say 15 minutes.
Do that for a couple of days and the ghosting affect will go away . You can then turn to a more reasonable screen saver.

I received this information from www.beginnercode.com

LCD picture distortion.


This is caused by a failure of the main board. The failure causes the refresh rate of the unit to be off creating a trailing or ghost effect. This will require a technician to replace that board though. Hope this help.
