Double image on Philips 190S monitor

My Philips 190S monitor has developed double vision, with everything on screen repeated as a shadow offset about 2mm to the right. Auto adjust fixed it for a while, but it came back. Do I need a new monitor, or is there a workaround?

    I have no argument with ZTLimited, but would welcome a second opinion.

Hi, May name is Randy, I have a few options for you.

You only have a few chooses:

  1. Download the update for your driver from this link: http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?ctn=190S5FB/27B&slg=en&scy=US
  2. Try un-installing and re-installing the driver with the update
  3. If you monitor is under warrenty ( I am assuming that it isn't buy the model number) have it serviced.
  4. Buy a new one, they are about $150.00 now (if you were happy with it before this happened)
If you know how to us an ohm meter and you are comfortable with soldering gun, you could buy a sevice manual for it. But I would not suggest it. You usualy end up buying a new one anyway.

Thank you for the chance to help.
Try to update the driver, if it doesn't work Go shopping!!

If you adjust the screen before, and the problem is back again, this is the convergence circuit gone bad. a repairman is needed for this fix, is not necesary change the monitor.

Review this tips: Philips Convergence

Before replacing make sure everything in service menu is at original values.

Istill had to fiddle with the manual convergence to get the colorsright. In the regular menu, disable auto perfect focus. It's worthless (Samsung).

I hope help you.

'Shadows' behind all texts and images on the screen


[u][b]LCD Monitor Shadow Effect[/b][/u]
This problem is best described as the LCD monitor "Shadow Effect".
The solution to this very simple. No software or hard ware changes required.
The cables that are connected to the LCD monitors are causing the problem. Its also called as electromagnetic noise or electrical noise.
[u][b]Solution: [/b][/u]Keep the two cables - (power cable and moitor display cable), that are connected to the LCD monitor as far away as possible with each other and also away from other electrical cables.
Thats it. Your shadow effect is fixed.
Thank you.

Panasonic PT-51HX41 rear projection tv showing shadow/double images.


Unplug the TV from the ac wall outlet for about 4 minutes then plug it back in and turn it on. If it still has a double image then tell me if it's affecting the menu screen from the TV (not the cable menu). And is the double image in red and blue?

Double image or shadow image


We recently had the same problem with our church projector and we too had just changed the lamp. I read somewhere while searching for an answer that if the cable input is loose it will cause double vision of the text. Sure enough, the cable was loose and after tightening the text cleared up immediatly.
