Question about Computer Monitors
The monitor, when on and heated to normal specs has a smudge or smear . It's at the top about .12" down, across about 6" of the screen. What ever color I choose for the background the smudge takes on that color being darker; that's how I see it. I have attached to to 2 different box's, used both the analog and digital connections, still there. I was able to take a picture of the anomaly, talked with LaCie, sent it to them. They set it up and can not see anything wrong with the monitor.
I have used the cables on a different LCD monitor but no strange smear.
They want to send it back to me.
I called today and asked them to do a rigorous power supply check. I thought it may be a 'weak' power supply: thinking that LaCie's power in there shop is FAR better than mine in my home office. I have run a dedicated home-run to the main box at HO to connect my equipment.
OH yes, the small icons on the LaCie are not nearly as clear as the ones on the other monitor.
I am using native resolutions and speeds.
thanks for your time,
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.
