Monitor clicks and then shrinks back and grows full by itself

Apple monitor 13 inch width and 10 inches deep. If I shut it off and it cools down, it doesn't do it until it heats up and then it becomes more and more frequent.

It sounds like the monitor has a bad picture tube. As the thing heats up, one of the elements is sagging and touching another one. Don't even consider repairing this as it's completely uneconomical. A new 17-inch LCD monitor is well under $100 now, and any monitor repair (assuming you could even find a shop that works on them) would cost at least $50.

When I play dvds or watch videos on youtube the screen has a black border on both sides reducing the size of the screen


If you hit full screen on the youtube video and its not full screen, then it sounds like your monitor resolution is to low.

Rt click on a place on your screen and pick screen resolution, then pick resolution and increase it.

The first number is width, so say it's on 800x600 then go 1024x768

Starlogic 20 inch widescreen monitor screen keeps going black


This is probably a back light problem. Take a bright flashlight and while the monitor is on, point it at the LCD and try different angles, etc. If you can see an image, it is the back light, probably the back light voltage converter unit in the lcd. It could also be the back light bulbs.

If you don't see an image with the flash light, then it could be the main logic board.

Monitor


Monitor sizes are measured on the diagonal from corner to corner.

A 17" LCD may have a screen width of 12 inches measured from side to side.

If you are measuring a old style CRT monitor (Cathode Ray tube) the visible screen area will be about an inch less as there is about 1/2 inch of plastic frame holding the CRT in the chassis. The manufacturer can advertise the actual size of the screen regardless of how much is actually visible to display information.

If you are talking about software not utilizing all the available screen area to display the image, that is an issue with the people writing the software code not keeping up with the changes in hardware.

In the past year or two, most displays have switched to the 16:9 and 16:10 wide aspect ratios while most web content is still written for the 4:3 old style aspect ratio. Eventually, software developers will catch up with cusrrent hardware.

My new 19 inch 1952 LG monitor stretched my display picture from what I use to have on my 17 inch. How do I adjust the height to width ratio for a picture that isn't distorted?


Right-click your desktop, click properties
go to 'settings' and select the 19 inch monitor
now change the resolution to the format you want to use.
Set it to something like 1600x1200, or 1024x768

Picture Resolution?


Picture resolution is the total number of pixels in your picture (those little colored dots when you look really really close). It's expressed in megapixels and is simply the product of the number of pixels in the width of the picture times the number of pixels in the length. For example, a 7.1 MP camera takes images with a resolution of 3072 pixels width by 2304 pixels height ( 7.1MP = 3072 x 2304).

Pixels/inch refers to the resolution of your picture on some external viewing device (printer, computer monitor, etc...). It has nothing to do with the settings on your camera. It's equal to the number of pixels in the picture divided by the width of the displayed picture on the device. For example, an 8 x 10" printed picture has a width of 10 inches. If I wanted to take full advantage of my 7.1 MP picture by printing it as an 8x10, then I should look for a printer capable of printing 707,789 pixels/inch. Now I'm pretty sure there's no printer currently capable of this feat.

The example above shows that the rush for more megapixels is not necessarily where consumers or camera manufacturers should be focusing their attention. Most people really only need something around the 3MP range for printouts or display on their monitor screens.

Screen shrinks


Possibility: Dust accumulated within.
Disconnect the monitor, and open it up. With a dry small paint brush and a vacuum cleaner, remove as much as possible. Especially around the tube and the ultor (the cable connected to the rear of the tube, usually has a rubber cup- like fitting on the tube end), then close up and test again.
Still doing it? This part requires great care, if you don't feel confident about working around a live chassis, DON'T!!!
Disconnect and open the monitor again. Connect up without its cover. Look around the chassis, you will see a number of adjustment potentiometers, possibly with markings such as "width" and "height" etc. Turn on the computer, and with a PLASTIC adjustment tool or TV alignment tool, (you can make one from a plastic knitting needle even), carefully MOVE each of these adjustments a bit, THEN RETURN THEM BACK TO THE POSITION THEY WERE IN.
Dirt often causes these controls to become intermittent in their wiper contact to the track.Moving them can restore a better contact.
There is also available fron electronic component suppliers, a pressure- pack contact cleaner product that can be sprayed onto/ into these controls, and may help if moving them does not.
If the above does not cure the problem, there is probably an electronic fault.
Remember, if you don't feel confident about poking around inside live equipment, DON'T, maybe you have a friend or relative who knows how.!!
