SOURCE: Horizontal widh shrinked

Huh, it sounds like the monitor's horizontal deflection amp (a big transistor) failed. It is not so if you can feed it a good signal and get a wider picture.
You would replace that thing with a transistor with a similar drive profile (i.e. not a FET), if you practice the right safety; better to use a service tech to do it unless you were trained in it. Alternately, you can try freezing your monitor (wrap it to keep out condensation! I only mention this because it's freezing out, where I am....) and see if this helps the transistor recover; it's not that sage or safe though, because of the condensation/electricity hazard and unlikely event that you will ground a work bench surface to do this test!

Be safe and consider using lower-power-consumption flat screens in warm weather.

Viewsonic VA1912WB error says analog signal

I had a Gateway 19" TFT that did the same thing.
Does the power light stay on? If so, you more than likely have "dry" solder joints at the inverters. Take it apart & shoot a little solder on the inverter solder joints. Good as new now. The solder joints dry out because of the high heat generated. This is a very common problem.

Unable to have 1280x768 full screen with DVI cable

Use the menu button on the monitor itself to adjust for the screen size in DVI mode.


On your SVGA adapter, go to your display properties (right click on desktop) click ADVANCED and change the refresh rate to fix the first problem mentioned.

Shrinked monitor of a personal computer

Have you try it on another pc ,if not try it and if this does not work, look if your monitor is not near a source of electromagnetic waves (like a speaker)remove this source,if this also does not work there is definitely a hardware problem. Which the cause maybe in the deflection block or any akin circuits
