Re: Unclear images

Remove the rear cover and adjust the focus control on the flyback. Use a non-conductive probe, available as adjustment tools from any radio shack. On the FBT (Flyback Transformer) you have two protruding adjustments - one marked screen, the other focus. The screen adjustment increases the G2 voltage to the crt and brightens the picture by increasing the voltage exponentially. You don't want to adjust the screen voltage. The other is the focus, you can easily turn that clockwise or counter clockwise and watch the screen to set it at your preference.
Hope this helps.

Monitor lcd acer al2016w 20" letters and image are fuzzy,,why?

I also have an Asrock motherboard (M266A) and have the AL2216W. The image and text is also fuzzy. I did improve it a by by unplugging/replugging all of the connectors on the back of the computer. I believe my mouse had a somewhat loose connection and this was causing interference. I can actually create interference on screen by moving my mouse up and down.
These Acer monitors seem to be very sensitive. I also tried this monitor on a old Desktop with Win98 and another new laptop with XP and it looks good on those computers, but not on my Asrock based system.

EMachines TFT LCD Gone Black

I have a E17TR (17") version that a friend gave me (free) a few months back, and just this morning it failed in the exact same way.

My theory is that the image is there but that it is just not being illuminated (so that I can see it). Such a case would suggest a problem with the Backlight or the Inverter.

I have found two web pages (from a company selling LCD repair parts) that can explain better than I.

Hope this help (the pages educated me).

Now if I can just figure out how to open the case; I took out the 4 screws (on the lower end of the back panel), but it just will not open in any way that seems logical . . . .
