    shadows to the right of everything on display, most visible when its black text on white background.

    this is a brand new monitor (got it 3 weeks ago) and unsure if taking it apart is a great idea

    is there another way or does SOYO have a standard warrantee?

    using VGA port.

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.

For me, this was simply an issue of wiggling my DVI cable... the monitor has the port facing downwards and I hadn't screwed it in. Must have just jiggled slightly loose.

Hi, I had a similar problem which seems to have turned out to be the cable between the PC and monitor. Try re-positioning it so that is no so close to power supply / mains interferance items. Regards

    MY shadow disappeared when I simply adjusted the cables behind the monitor.

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!

Lines and shadows across the screen


I would try it on another PC first, also check the VGA cable connectors at both ends. It can be that the filter caps in the power supply are failing inside the monitor.
If you decide to open up the monitor, please look through my albums so you will have some idead what to look for inside.

My monitor has a line down the middle with a shadow on one side of theline and I have osd locked on the screen and cannot get the program to show on screen to fix it


Vertical line down a monitor with a shadow genearlly is an indication of a video cable problem. Try removing the video cable from the computer and if it is still there and OSD is still locked it is an internal logic circuits problem

Grey bands and shadowing


Uninstall the video driver from the Computer, restart the Computer then reinstall it. Furthermore, check for any updates for the video drivers.

You may also connect the monitor to any other normally functioning Computer to check if the lines remain there.

If it's so then the monitor requires servicing.
