Question about NEC MultiSync FE991SB 19" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor coating A friend gave me a very nice CRT glass flatscreen monitor the other day, works fine but screen was a little dirty so, I cleaned it same way I clean my glass/mirrors etc (if you don't know you don't know) I cleaned it with Mr Muscle spray. There is not huge damage but of course it has removed some of the coating, looks like scratches but it's not. It's an NEC MultiSync FE950 but this model not shown in your list of products so I have chosen 'nearest' just to get in. Any chance of me putting it right ???

Want to clean inside of glass

there is no way to clean the inside of the glass. The CRT is a completely sealed unit and unless there has been a malfunction, there should be nothing on the inside of the glass. The way CRT's work is a photon gun shoots electricity at the inside of the screen, which is coated with a layer of phosphur. this excites the phosphur and makes it glow with color, forming the picture that you see. Even if you could get at the inside of the glass, you wouldn't be able to clean it becuse you would wipe away the phosphur coating.

What flatscreen monitor is OK to substitute for sanpo alphascan 520?

Hi. Almost all the crt type monitors should work, it's flat screen monitors that seem to give computers problems with aspect ratios, and resolution settings.

I personally use an NEC AccuSync 70.
It might not be the newest monitor in the world, but the colors are crisp, clear, and bright.
And It allows a setting of 1024x768@85 hz refresh rate, which works great for my games.

As far as flat screens, I would probably go with an Acer, or a Dell monitor, as these two companies seem to have better quality from their monitors than most other manufacturers.

I hope this helps you out!

How do you properly clean the screen?

Do not use Windex or any glass cleaner. Use plain water and a very soft cloth or you can buy a cleaner especially formulated for an LCD screen. Do not press hard and turn the monitor off before cleaning. On an older CRT monitor you can use anything you would use to clean a glass window.

Cleaning monitor

I dont know which type you have but here is how to clean either:

Those big chunky CRT monitors have glass screen which are easily cleaned. The important thing to remember is that you don’t ever want to spray any liquid directly on the screen. Instead, spray the cloth with water or a mild window cleaning solution then wipe the screen. You can use the same damp cloth to clean the entire monitor case, as well. If you prefer, you can also use moistened paper towels to clean CRT monitors, You will be only cleaning the outside of the monitor case and screen. Never open the monitor casing which contain electric voltage that can cause a shock.

Flat Panel LCDs
LCD monitors are often called flat panel monitors because they are flat and thin. These are the types of screens that are used in most laptop computers, and they are also becoming very popular for desktop computers. LCD screens are softer than CRT glass screens, so they require some extra tender loving care. Keep your fingers and sharp objects away from these screens since they are susceptible to damage and scratches.
Use a soft dry cotton cloth to remove fingerprints and smudges from the screen. If this does not completely remove the dirt and splotches, use a small amount of isopropyl alcohol on the cleaning cloth that has been dampened with water. (A small amount of vinegar can be substituted for the isopropyl alcohol.) Again, spray the liquid on the cloth and never directly onto the screen. Do not use paper towels on an LCD screen as they can scratch the screen. Never use ammonia, ammonia-based cleaners, or strong cleaners which can cause the surface to yellow and become brittle.
It is good to have a special clean cloth that is dedicated to use on the LCD screen. Don’t pick up any old rag, as dirt particles in the rag can scratch the surface of the screen. Special LCD cleaning cloths are available and can be an excellent investment.
