Shadowing on ACER AL1711 17" LCD Monitor

I have recently gained a monitor and discovered that are bright areas(bright shadows) on the right of objects,icon, letters etc.The length of this area is approx. 1-2 pixels. This hurts your eyes after a while. I note that someone else had a similar problem and was recommended to remove the back and adjust the HV potentiometer.
Does this work?
And how do you remove the back?  I have removed all the screws and cannot open it up?

SIMPLE !! The "shadowing" you talk about is due to cables in back of your computer, touching or too close together. I had this happen to mine. I moved the cables apart, and no more shadows !! Sounds too easy, but it works. Takes a few seconds. Immediate results.

Did you ever find the problem with this unit? BTW, a crappy video cable can cause this or the input impedance has changed on the monitor due to improper connections.

All typeset and pictures have shadows/blur have changed out video card on Lenovo computer - seemed successful for a while but now back to square one. any ideas


Try a different "data" cable between the monitor and the computer.

Connect the monitor to a different desktop/laptop.
If the "shadowing" is still visible, then it's the monitor that has gone "bad'.

Connect a different monitor to your Lenovo computer.
If the "shadowing" is still visible, then your monitor is OK, and your video-card is the problem.

Monitor has shadows at edges and beside every object and icon


[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.

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!

Has a shadowing problem where everything on the screen was shadowing to the right. Did basic troubleshooting techniques and found that it was due to a loose connection to the computer. You may want to check this if resetting to factory settings doesn't help.

I know exactly what your talking about. I've seen in many times. It' happens too in CRT monitors as well as LCD. It could ALTHOUGH be as simple as a bad cable catching interference. Most likely though, it sounds like a bad LCD driver board or video board. If you have warranty, call it in. Otherwise see if it lessens with adjustments of contrast and brightness up and down. This directly affect the driver board power and can improve it enough to be tolerable again.
