    Mine has the same problem as gum1069's. A ghostly rippling effect moving diagonally across the screen. It seems to vary but generally looks like a medium sized herringbone pattern or moire pattern.

    Was an intermittent problem, but now is seen more frequently. Perhaps it is constant and more noticeable on darker screen.

    Checked the connections and made the common lcd monitor adjustments without seeing any change.

    I'm having the same, or a similar problem with my emachines E17T4 LCD monitor. A ghostly rippling in the background. This does not effect the actual picture but can be seen through the spaces, so to speak. The effect is much worse on a darker screen. It seemed to come and go. It has become more frequent and noticable. Strangely, it seems to get worse when I'm online. An automatic update installation increases the described effect and it returns to it's usual state afterwards. I emailed the emachines tech support and they suggested that the "picture tube" was probably bad.

    This LCD monitor is two years old and has fewer hours of use than average.

    I am having the same problem. I have used the monitor controls but that didn't fix it. Went to e-machines to see if I could reinstall driver but there was no driver offered. The driver used seems to be one that comes with Windows (plug and play). This have been going on for a long time and the monitor is old. It may be time for replacement.

Have You Checked Your Video Drivers?

If it's a thin vertical or horizontal line which is constantly there in the same place chances are the panel is defective.Normally a panel repairs or replacement is not cost effective and you need to live with this defect or go for new monitor. Sorry !

How do I eliminate ripple effect on an acer AL1916W monitor


What is your refresh rate set to? At the desktop, with no windows open, right click the mouse and a dialog window will open. Click on properties, then the settings tab at the top, then another window will open. Click on monitor then at the bottom of the new window click on advanced. Check the refresh rate and change it to a lower rate and see what happens. You might even raise it. I hope this helps.

Ripple Effect


Hi josh14
Yep, I have heard about this one. Not yet seen it myself. First thing I need to know is what browser you are using?
Do you get the same problem when you use different browsers?
Does it occur in any other applications?

If you can answer those questions I'm sure some will have the answer for you. I'll check the postings?

Ripples appear in the image when photographing an object with fine plaids or stripes. Why is that?


The following describes the symptoms, cause and prevention of the Moire effect. Symptoms of the Moire effect When you are shooting a subject that has a fine regular pattern such as stripes or plaids, a ripple that does not exist on the subject sometimes appears in the image. This effect is called the Moire effect. Why does the Moire effect occur? Digital cameras and camcorders are equipped with imaging devices such as CCD sensors and CMOS sensors that have pixels that are finely aligned horizontally and vertically that convert light into electronic signals. When the pixels and the pattern on the subject overlap slightly misaligned, an interference pattern occurs and a ripple that does not exist on the actual subject may appear. This is the Moire effect. Preventing the Moire effect You can reduce this effect by changing the distance, zoom setting or the angle of the image. If you are using a camera with manual focusing, the Moire effect can be reduced by simply changing the focus slightly. Reference You may find another Moire effect displayed on the LCD of the camera. As this is caused by the aligned pixels on the LCD, this effect does not necessarily appear in pictures you have taken.

Ripples appear in the image when photographing an object with fine plaids or stripes. How can I fix that?


When you are shooting a subject that has a fine regular pattern such as stripes or plaids, a ripple that does not exist on the subject sometimes appears in the image. An example of this can be seen in the pictures below. The photo on the left shows the fine plaids pattern on the shirt. The photo on the right is a distance shot of the same shirt. In this photo, you can see a ripple that is not visible in the photo on the left. This effect is called the Moire effect. Why does the Moire effect occur? Digital cameras and camcorders are equipped with imaging devices such as CCD sensors and CMOS sensors that have pixels that are finely aligned horizontally and vertically that convert light into electronic signals. When the pixels and the pattern on the subject overlap slightly misaligned, an interference pattern occurs and a ripple that does not exist on the actual subject may appear. This is the Moire effect. Look at the image above. This image shows red cross-stripes and black cross-stripes overlapped slightly misaligned. When you look at the entire image, you find a ripple that differs from either of the patterns. This is the same principle that causes the Moire effect. Preventing the Moire effect You can reduce this effect by changing the distance, zoom setting or the angle of the image. If you are using a camera with manual focusing, the Moire effect can be reduced by simply changing the focus slightly. Reference You may find another Moire effect displayed on the LCD of the camera.
