SOURCE: Always says: Auto Image Adjust

These are the allowable resolutions and refresh frequencies for your monitor. 1280 x 1024 @ 60, 75 Hz 1024 x 768 @ 60, 70, 72, 75 Hz 800 x 600 @ 56, 60, 72, 75 Hz 640 x 480 @ 60, 75 Hz 720 x 400 @ 70 Hz 1280x720 is invalid but I see that you were having problems at 1024x768 which might mean the refresh timing was wrong. Make sure the monitor tab in the display properties (advanced) is correctly set with 'hide modes that this monitor cannot display' so that the display is locked to the valid frequencies and resolutions. If all else fails look at the game .ini configuration settings. You might be able to set a compatible mode there. Or run the game in a window.

Hey I had a blue tint on my SVA VR-17S and the monitor VGA cord was what the problem was. But then after that i did auto-adjust and it look good for a second, then went yellow like your is doing. I went through the setting on my there is a Recall adjustment and it resets the factory settings and that fixed my problem.

Tricky one. Have you tried using different dispay resolutions from your Windows Display Control Panel?
ie 1200x1014, 1600x1400, etc.

When you say you used the manual adjust, do you mean the horizontal sync option?

Did you perform a Settings Recall?

And most monitors have a way of entering into an engineering "Factory Service Menu". Usually by depressing specific buttons while the monitor is OFF, and then pressing the power button while still holding the others. Then let all button go at once. From there, hit the normal button that you use for getting into the OSD. In the OSD, there's usually a new field with all kinds of cool new settings to play with. One of them being a soft reset. You'll have to search the net for how to enter into your Factory service menu.

Oh wait! I know!
If your picture has moved to the right, move yourself accordingly.
So that now you and your picture will be aligned properly.

He he he...
Kidding!
That one was from ViewSonic customer support.

I would look at the power supply first, this may be the same chassis as VA719B (19"), look for bad caps, see example here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Viewsonic%20VA912B/

Hello,

It is the picture picture board on your monitor that is malfunctioning, since the power led or button is on, but the display screen goes blank after a few seconds, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity or any service center to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

Make the screen bigger


You mean your screen is showing a smaller image? If it's a new model you should be able to find a "Auto" button on your monitor, pressing that can fix it. If it's a old model you will have to find your manual to adjust the screen according to it.

Troubleshooting Flat Panel Monitor issues.

Screen is blank and power indicator is off

The monitor is possibly not receiving power. Perform the following steps to fix the problem:
  1. Ensure that the electrical outlet and the monitor are both switched on.
  2. Check that the power cord is firmly plugged into the electrical outlet and the power supply unit.
  3. If the power cord has a removable fuse, replace it.
  4. Try another power cord.
  5. Try another electrical outlet.
  6. Check the power connection at the back of the panel.
Screen is blank and power indicator is steady green

Brightness and Contrast may be too low. Adjust the brightness and contrast using the On-screen display controls (OSD) by selecting the button
Screen is blank and power indicator is steady amber

The monitor is in the Power Management Standby state. The power management feature is invoked when the computer recognizes that you have not used your mouse or keyboard for a user-definable period. Perform the following steps to bring monitor out of the power management state:
  1. Press any key on the keyboard or move the mouse to restore operation.
  2. Check the Power Management software on your computer.
  3. flatpnlmont12.jpgPress the (OK) key to switch between analog and digital mode. If the panel is the wrong mode for the signal being provided, the monitor appears to go into sleep mode.
Screen is blank and power indicator is flashing green
Display mode of the computer is outside the range of the monitor. The display mode the monitor uses is controlled by your computer. Therefore, you should refer to your computer's documentation for details on how to change display modes.

The image size, position and shape may change when the display mode changes. This is normal and the image can be readjusted using the IMAGE SETUP and the monitor controls.

Note: Unlike CRT monitors, which requires a high refresh rate to minimize flicker, TFT technology is inherently flicker-free. If possible, configure your computer for 1600 x 1200 addressability at 60Hz vertical refresh rate.

Use the following table as a guideline and reconfigure your computer to use a supported display mode. The highest resolution (for example, 1600 x 1200) produces the optimal output, but limitations of your monitor may prohibit this setting. Adjust the addressability mode until an image appears.

CHECK SIGNAL CABLE" message is shown and power indicator is steady amber.

The monitor is not receiving a video signal. Perform the following steps to fix the problem:
  1. Check that the signal cable is firmly connected to your computer
  2. Check that no pins are bent in the signal cable connector.
There are noises in the video signal. The IMAGE SETUP function is used to adjust the level of noise in the video signal which causes horizontal lines or areas where the image appears to be unstable and jitters or shimmers. This can be done automatically or manually.
Note: It is not applicable to digital input.
Use the image setup fix the problem:
  1. flatpnlmont6.jpgSelect (Image Setup) menu in the OSD.

  2. Select Manual to adjust CLOCK/PHASE settings.
Image appears to be discolored

The color setting may be incorrect. Perform the following steps to adjust the color settings:
  1. flatpnlmont8.jpgSelect (Image Properties) from the OSD menu.
  2. flatpnlmont9.jpgSelect (Color Properties) to adjust the color mode you find most comfortable or fine tune the colors using the Custom menu.
A few dots are missing, discolored, or inappropriately lighted

A small number missing, discolored, or lighted dots may be present on the screen, which is an intrinsic characteristic of the TFT LCD technology and is not an LCD defect.

Note: The LCD monitor needs time to become thermally stable the first time you turn it on each day. Thus, to achieve more accurate adjustments for parameters, allow the LCD monitor to warm up (be on) for 15 minutes before making any screen adjustments

I have the overall yellow tint in my lcd monitor there are no magnets close to...


The discoloration problem is due to the near by magnetic field appliances like speakers which are very near to monitors ...
so what you have to do is just keep some distance to the monitor from the speakers and other magnetic appliances and then press menu button & just give degauss..

I can't see the whole screen on the monitor - I have a W1943T - how do I adjust the width?


This page has manuals and drivers for your monitor:

http://www.lge.com/uk/support/product/support-product-profile.jsp?customerModelCode=W1943T-PF&initialTab=documents&targetPage=support-product-profile#

The manual explains how to use the buttons on the monitor itself to make adjustments. A description of this "on screen display" (OSD) starts on page A10 of this manual. Page A14 shows you how to move the image vertically or horizontally.

You may need to adjust the resolution. Higher resolutions will make the images on your screen smaller, so more likely to "fit."

Also, if you are just using generic drivers, you may see some improvement by installing the correct drivers that are specific to your monitor.

Screen monitor images on the righ side is not showig.


Hi afcarrillo,

This could be a simple resolution problem. By that I mean that the resolution is set too low, therefore putting things off screen. Here's how you change the resolution:

Windows XP

Right click the Desktop and select Properties. Click the tab all the way on the right that says settings, and drag the slider to your native resolution of 1600x900

Windows Vista

Click Start, Control Panel, Appearance and Personalization, Personalization, Display Settings and drag the slider to 1600x900

Windows 7

Simply right click the desktop, select Screen resolution and pick 1600x900

If you do not have a resolution problem, then it's most likely the monitor itself. Most often times you can fix it one of two ways:

1. Some monitors have a button that says "Auto" which will auto adjust your monitor. If you have one, try it.

2. If that didn't work or you don't have one, go through the monitor's OSD (on screen display) and work through the settings so that you can manually adjust it and set it to your taste.

Hope this helps :)

My desktop is not centered and the fonts are too big. Also my Start button and bottom toolbar have disappeared.


Sounds like your resolution has been set too low.

Firstly, i'm going to assume you have a 17" LCD monitor, and that you are running Windows XP. (what a guess!) =-]

Generally, you'd want to right-click the desktop in a blank area, select properties. This gives you the display properties. Go to the last tab across called "settings", then under "screen resolution", drag the slider up a notch and hit apply. If it looks right, leave it at that. If it's not quite right, go another notch and apply. Keep going until you have it right.

But on your 17" LCD monitor, running the DVI cable to the PC... the computer should already have detected it's maximum resolution. In this case, you can drag the slider all the way to the right and hit apply, knowing that this is the optimal resolution. Also on your Dell LCD, you should have several buttons for adjusting the screen. One of those buttons is usually a "self-adjust" or "auto detect" or "some other obvious thing" for self-adjusting the screen viewable area. It *should* do this automatically when you change resolutions, which your Dell 173FPb should do anyway. =-]

I had the same problem same model. The image was off center to the right and it couldn't be fixed by the auto-image adjust or the manual adjust.

My solution was really simple, I moved a video player (RealPlayer) onto the monitor and maximized the screen, then pressed auto-adjust once. It worked.

How do I get the widescreen monitor to show unstretched images?


i had the same problem with my new widescreen monitor... turns out the best setting (at least, for my specific monitor) was 1440 by 900 pixels. at this setting the desktop still stretches itself to fill the entire screen, but everything else is completely unstretched. (to adjust the screen resolution, right click anywhere on the desktop, then go to properties, then settings.)
