Xerox 17 XL765 LCD monitor Wavy lines but pitcure is good

My Xerox XL765 17 LCD monitor is displaying wavy lines in the picture, like some kind of vsynch/hsynch problem.
I have replaced the Ac adapter and changed outlet sockets here at home and at work.
the picture is visible IE I can see the start button and my desktop ok, but the wavy lines move up and down making hard to focus on the screen.

I removed the VGA input card and saw that a capacitor was bulging so I got a new 1000uf 6.3v cap and soldered in place, but the problem is still happening.

I can always buy a new VGA board from Xerox of $50 or a new inverter for $60. But this is a 17 inch LCD, I don't know that I want to put any more money into it unless I know what to replace or possibly fix ??

Supposedly Proview has made this model for xerox. Maybe that could spark some ideas ?

My monitor is blurry / wavy. I tried connecting another PC to the monitor and it is still like that. I also replaced the cable but that didn't do anything either.

It sounds like a power supply problem either with the power pack or inside the LCD display.

Ring the Acer support line for your country and thy will advise on how to get it repaired locally.
It is not an easy job!

Wavy screen

Try using a different refresh rate. I've found that when you change it down to 60 hertz that the issue usually goes away.

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.

Wavy lines, goes black during video games.

It sounds to me like the monitor's refresh rate is too low to support your current settings, and the demands of the game. Have you tried adjusting the refresh rate? If I'm right, you should be able to fix the wavy lines that way. I'm not sure how much control over the refresh rate the game takes, but if you can fix the wavy lines and the game still doesn't work, I think you're not likely to get the game to work on this monitor.
