Why do scanned documents appear unclear in PDF format?

Perhaps you're scanning at too low resolution? If you want images to be clear at normal size, scan at 300 pixels per inch. Your scanner may be scanning at fax resolution, 100 by 200 pixels per inch.

I have 40inch sansui led tv when i use pen drive the vision is not clear then I open service code 8532 and go to setup and then USB the settings cant open how i adjust Brightness ??&Contrast to see vision...

You say you are using the pen drive???? Is this some sort of video file or files you maybe downloaded from the web or something? Possibly the problem with the unclear vision is that many web videos are of very low resolution. When watched on a smartphone or small tablet they seem fine, but when enlarged to 40", they can get really grainy and pixellated.

Recommended resolution is 1920x1080 but my settings do not show that option. Was working ok, but now screen is somewhat unclear.

In case you can't show the 1920X1080 option (or higher resolutions) either the VGA controller can not handle these resolutions (so they are hidden) or the drivers for your VGA controller are missing. Clarify me your desktop brand/model to come back with more details.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

Monitor Picture is Blurry because of shadows

If you've already checked all your cable connections, to make sure they're tight, check your windows settings: Go to Start>rt click My computer, choose properties, settings on performance, and choose adjust for best performance. (This will uncheck the shadow options for menus and icons, etc.) Take a look at your desktop. Is that better? If so, you might want to do some maintenance to improve your system performance by clicking here.
If no improvement, download or open the .pdf user guide for your monitor by clicking here. See pages 22, 17, and 12. They will show you how to use the auto button on the monitor to reset to optimal settings, to adjust the refresh rate (control panel>display>settings>advanced) to its optimum. (Normally, higher refresh rates indicate clearer pictures, but some LCD monitors seem to run better at a default 60hz rate. Check your Gateway documentation for your graphics adapter to see what it supports, (your monitor supports 60, 70, & 75), or experiment.)
If adjusting settings doesn't improve anything, you could search for updated drivers for your graphics adapter. Go to windows update and see if you're offered hardware updates, or search Gateway support for newer drivers.
Not many options left. See here.You could take it in to a local tech and have them take a quick look.( or try it on another computer).
If it's on its way to a sad end, I'm sorry. We have the same monitor at home and it's been great. Aside from a scratch someone put in it years back, it provides very clear resolution.

Monitor is enlarged, wont return to normal size

Hi, three possible things. 1) You have activated the magnifier. Go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, Accessibility, Magnifier - deactivate, should be a small window bottom left of the desktop. or 2) Your screen resolution somehow changed. Right click on any clear part of the desktop, go to properties, Settings Tab. Adjust screen resolution to desired setting then click Apply/OK. or 3)You are in Safemode. Restart and if same large icons etc, do # 2. Hope that this be of some help to you. Pls post how things turn up. Regards
