Question about Daewoo 19NF 19 in.CRT Conventional Monitor

1 Answer

Out of focus

The problem is quite sinple I think. My computer screen appears fuzzy or out of focus. Average size writing is hard to read, we have to zoom in to read smaller print. Is there a way to fix this? I tried to download a user manual but I can't figure out how that works either. If you can help thank you.

Re: Out of focus


Your display being fuzzy as you described is indicative of either:
a. weak picture tube; or
b. component failure or deterioration.

Even if it were a weak picture tube or deterioration, it is still possible to "squeeze" a few more usable time out of the monitor. You simply have to adjust the focus control. Normally, this is accessible from the rear of the electronic circuit board and is a part of the Flyback transformer (FBT). Below is an image of a sample FBT. Pls notice the two (2) protrusions, one of them is marked as Screen and the other as the Focus. You need to adjust the focus till it satisfies your visual requirement/preference.


A word of caution. This procedure is not recommended if you have no TV/Monitor repair experience. It is not a fix. It is as earlier stated, squeezing in just a few more usable time. The unit would have to be adjusted "live" with the cover off. You need to be familiar with electronic components, tools and circuitry as well as working with powered devices and extremely High Voltage. The monitor may have to be operated with insulated support since the back cover will not be attached. Additionally, you may need to use a mirror to check if you adjusted it as you want it.

As you try to adjust it with an insulated screwdriver, you will notice that there is mid point where the focus will just be about right. You may have to adjust a couple of times to get the setting as you want it.

Should you feel uncomfortable doing this, perhaps you may need to seek the assistance of a qualified TV/Monitor technician.

Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

My monitor is fuzzy in internet

Fuzzy on the internet and everything else or fuzzy just on the internet? check for monitor resolution and see if you have the screen resolution set right. If you have the resolution set too low, the screen can appear more fuzzy if the aspect ratio is not set right.

Cant hardly read the screen the printing is so small and a little fuzzy

Change the display font size. In Win 7, right click on the desktop and choose Screen Resolution then choose make Text and other items larger or smaller. This brings up Windows Appearance and Personalization > Display (small, medium, large buttons). With Win7, you can also turn on Clear Type for LCD displays.

The earlier versions of Windows have the same display font option but it may be a subset of the Accessibility Control Panel. Macs probably have a similar control in the OS.

I hope this helps.

Fuzzy, unstable display

This sounds like a high-voltage power supply problem, which would need to be diagnosed by an experienced computer or electronics technician.

Check to see if there is a small focus knob on the back. If so try turning it back and forth three or four times to "clean" it....then adjust for correct focus.

Symptoms like this can also be caused by accumulated dust inside the monitor.

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.
