Question about Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 2020U (White) 22 in.CRT Conventional Monitor
I've got a '99 2020u, and over the last several days the resolutions and the colors have failed, leaving me with a dark maroon picture that is impossible to read.
The problem didn't happen all at once, but got progressively worse.
The monitor would act like it was degaussing and then another color and level of resolution would go.
If there's a way to fix this, I'm all ears. I love the monitor which still looks better than any LCD I've seen.
Most 17 inch monitors upward have two (2) focus adjustments. They are located at the back of the Flyback Transformer (FBT) together with the screen control. They tend to "drift" as you have posted after some time of usage. In the absence of calibrating instruments, you simply have to wing it when adjusting. It might be of help if you use a squarish mirror to view the front while adjusting the controls at the rear. Of course the usual precautions apply when working with live units especially within the high voltage area.
Should you not be comfortable opening the unit, adjusting while "live", you may need to seek the services of a qualified professional.
In some extreme case, no adjustment could and would correct a problem if the CRT has already developed some form of ion burn on its mask and therefore would require replacement. At times, you may need to consider the cost of repairs (parts & service) as well as the down time which may negate justification for repairs and therefore the prospect of a new monitor might be better off.
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
