Question about Microsoft HannsG HU171D 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Images appear smudged & random blurry lines

Over the past week my monitor has developed a horizontal expansion of the image on the screen. anything that the monitor shows is drawn out a little bit. there are also transparent blurry vertical lines that you can see until they are over text or detailed image. the overall picture seems to have gotten lighter as well and i can't seem to change the contrast or brightness.

If you had not said you cannot change the contrast or brightness there would have been two most likely possibilities....either the monitor or the video card (even if built into the motherboard). Since you did and I assume you have unplugged both the power and data cable and replugged them in with the same result you have a bad monitor in all probability. The simplest way to verify this is to try it on another machine. If bad, which I strongly suspect it is, you have three choices.....if under warranty do the obvious, if not and it is less than 4 years old and you only use it for 3-4 hours per day it's probably worth the service charge if you can find a TV repair shop with reasonable diagnostic rates to take a peek inside. I had a capacitor blow on a 21 inch crt (not lcd) and for the price of a capacitor...cheap....and $30 I have been using the monitor for the last 5 years. But, be forewarned, your problem is with a non-obvious component, very probably a controller chip...and that could be a $100 bill or more depending on where you live. The last choice is treat yourself.....I have a 20 inch LCD wide screen and actually regret not getting the 22 inch. If the latter is your choice pricewatch.com can give you some options. That is not a plug for the site by the way....they sell nothing but they do rank by price suppliers for a zillion items and non of the price search engines (for computer parts) can beat the prices there. Hope this helps.....

Desktop icons stretched horizontally


Sounds like you need to set the screen resolution for the monitor. The computer should recognize each screen individually in the desktop options dialog. If it doesn't recognize the two different screens, you may want to change the resolution when you plug in the monitor.

Horizontal and vertical lines on ACER laptop


Hi there some how your laptop screen pressed & the screen is damaged. Just the option is replacing the screen. Another reason is over heating of screen by manufacturing default. Your laptop still under warranty so i suggest you visit the Acer service center & claim the damaged things if your screen does not have any over pressed symptom then. I hope you understand me. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Shadow Lines Across Screen on Dell P1130 CRT Monitor


What sort of shadow lines? I assume you haven't just noticed the two horizontal lines 1/3rd up the screen from the bottom and 1/3rd down from the top from the internal stabilizing wires that all Trinitron CRTs have?

Horizontal lines on Screen


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!

Blurring of images and text


mt, the 6 to 8 lines you were seeing were most likley the prelude to the end of the monitor. If the problem only occurs when the screen saver comes on then I could say the driver maybe being corrupted by a certain screensaver picture or program. When the monitor warms up to a certain temprature the electronics start to fail. You may want to turn off the monitor while your not right in front of it to cool it down and prolong its use.

Screen width unadjustable


Most likely width control circuit has developed a problem. Most common causes are a failed diode in the yoke return circuit or open capacitor near the flyback.
