Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor

ViewSonic Monitor A75S


My ViewSonic monitor now displays the screen image as if "tilted" back over the top half of the screen. If I hit the top of the monitor gently, sometimes it recovers. Also, this problem seems to go away once the monitor is in use for a while. This monitor is almost seven years old and has not been mistreated --- except when I hit it now!

Any help is appreciated, especially if I can fix it myself.
Thank you!

Re: ViewSonic Monitor A75S

Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!

How do I adjust the screen tilt and height? HELP!!!!!!

Hi, Here is what I was able to find out about your monitor from ViewSonic. There is no manual available on their website.
I have two ViewSonic monitors that are very similar to the one you have.
Here is what I can tell you. The monitor, although it does not seem like it can, be tilted front to back.
If you grip the monitor screen on the side edges (left and right) and 1/3rd the way up and twist it either away or toward you, it should tilt. It is a little stiff, just go ahead and tilt it. As far as adjusting the high. That, I'm sorry to say cannot be done.
I hope this helps you.
Best Regards,

Screen jumps back to prior screen

If you mean to say that the computer-generated displayed image on your screen changes, it's a function of the computer, not the monitor. If you mean to say that some monitor-generated displayed image is appearing (such as a setup/configuration menu or a splash screen), please tell us more so we can diagnose further.

Viewsonic VX2235wm Horizontal Image 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...
That one was from ViewSonic customer support.

Our viewsonic monitor tilts forward. how do we tilt it back?

Hello again.
The ViewSonic VG1930wm has a height adjustment range of 3.2", TILT capabilities, and a swivel range of 360 degrees.
So yes your monitor should be able to tilt back and forth.  Most likely if you hold the base of the monitor, and press somewhere on the front at the top or bottom (do not press on the screen itself) then it should easily tilt back and forth.  Occassionally there is a switch you may have to hold while you push on the front-top/bottom of the monitor which acts as a lock for the tilt angle.
Hope that helps, and don't forget to vote/rate! 
Height adjustment range 3.2", tilt, swivel range 360º
