Question about IBM E74 17" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

I was adjusting picture on monitor and now picture completely messed up

I was doing some fine tune adjustments to a pretty good picture on my monitor. I then changed the screen resolution setting just to see what happens and boom... my monitor started to show only a couple of lines. I tried reset button on the monitor - nothing. I plugged in a different monitor - same thing. I restarted the computer several times (by turning off), no change. I booted the Windows XP in Safe Mode and everything appears on monitor perfectly. However when I go back to booting PC in regular mode, I get just a few lines on screen. I thought about uninstalling the video driver but in Safe mode you cannot do that. So here I am, no picture in regular mode and good picture in Safe mode. What happened and how to fix?? Thanks in advance

    Checked capacitors and they all look good. Monitor menu wont start. After it it on for a while, the screen will eventually flash and show the Windows XP desktop but it will be very staticky and have small red lines like rice all over the picture. I have a syncmaster 213t that I've plugged in and it starts fine so I don't think its the PC unless they run with different settings.

  • Signal out of Range.
  • Out Of Scan Range
  • Horizontal frequency is out of range.
  • Cannot Display This Video Mode Out of Sync

This issue may occur if the signal from the video adapter exceeds the scan range of the monitor. The video adapter setting for updating the screen (the refresh rate) is incompatible with the monitor.
you should reinstall your video drivers in safe mode.

To restart in safe mode repeatedly press the F8 key during the computer startup. This will bring a menu where you'll be able to choose safe mode.

What needs to be done at 100,000km service for Honda crv 1999


What I would do, if you haven't, yet is do a total tune up. Change the oil, oil filter, PCV valve, air filter, spark plugs and spark plug wires, timing belt, distributor, and recently I heard that adjusting the valves at that (100,000) point will also prolong the engines life, the timing belt and valve adjustments seem to be the hardest to do. This is what i did to my 1999 honda cr-v except the valve adjustment, Im not good enough to mess with that on my own. Doing it myself turned out pretty cheap, and easy, just time consuming. good luck!

Paul,
Your Yamaha seems to be needing a clutch adjustment.
You can adjust this on your own by turning the adjusting nut out (at the handlebars) to take up the slack. If that doesn't fix the issue completely, turn the nut back to where it was, and adjust the cable at the clutch housing (right side). Start in small adjustments, and work your way from there. When you get it close, go back to the adjusting nut located at the handlebars and do the fine tuning there. Be sure to leave some slack from full release of the handle to where you feel the clutch tension start. If you don't, the clutch will not fully engage. If this doesn't fix the issue, let me know and we can go from there.
Hope this helps

Need manual for nokia 447za computer monitor


It sounds like the edges of the video displayed are looking like they are curved in/out? I'm racking my brain trying to remember the terms used on CRT monitors and all I can come up with is elliptical? It has been awhile since I have messed with one. In any event, start pressing the buttons on the display working from left to right. You should hit the Main Menu right away. Generally speaking, there should be a factory reset function as a last choice. If you see that, highlight it and hit the accept button (it's the one you pressed to get to that screen). In the event you don't come across that, look for a Positioning choice and enter that screen. Your choices are generally a + or - for each setting. Press away on each choice increasing or decreasing until you find the correct settings you're looking for. If you're unsure of how to get out of a choice, do nothing for a few seconds and the screen will default back. Let me know if I need to clarify anything or you need a little more help. Grandkids are pesky but I've always found them worth it!

The TV picture keeps jumping/flicking. All effort to fine tune it was fruitless. Do you reckon if I have the remote control, that might be helpful?


The jumping and flicking/flickering of the picture happens when there is asynchronization/mismatch in the frequencies. This should be adjustable by coarse tuning and fine tuning.

4.14.1 Understanding Viewing Features
Your LCD HDTV features four viewing modes and Picture-In-Picture (PIP)/Picture-by-Picture (POP) mode.
You can switch viewing modes using the remote control.
4.14.2 Viewing Modes
Normal Mode
The original 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source) is preserved, so black bars are
added to the left and right of the display image. Standard TV broadcasts are
displayed with a 4:3 Aspect Ratio. Movies in 4:3 Aspect Ratio may be referred
to as pan-and-scan or full frame. These movies were originally filmed in 16:9
(widescreen), and then modified to fit a traditional TV screen (4:3).
Wide Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full-frame movie in this mode,
the display image is stretched proportionately to fill the TV screen.
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1 source) program or movie, the
display image fills the TV screen. If you are watching a widescreen
(1.85:1 or 2.35:1 source) program or movie, there will still be black
bars at the top and bottom.
Zoom Mode
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1, 1.85:1, or 2.35:1 source)
program or movie, the display image is zoomed proportionally to fill the
width of the screen. The top and bottom are cut off to remove most of
the source material’s black bars. This mode is good for programs or
movies with sub-titles.
Panoramic Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full frame movie in this mode,
the 4:3 Aspect Ratio (1.33:1 source) display image is stretched
horizontally on the left and right sides to fill the TV screen. The center
of the image is not stretched.

Note: Viewing modes are saved based on input. For example, you lasted watched a DVD in widescreen
mode and then watched TV in standard mode. When you switch back to DVD input, the viewing mode
will return to widescreen.

Why do pictures taken with my digital cameras nearly always look too dark when viewed through my computer although they look fine on the cameras screen


It's usually just a matter of calibration between your camera's LCD and your computer monitor. The default settings on your camera's screen should be pretty close to accurate. Your monitor could be lighter or darker, depending on many factors, such as your preferences, or out-of-the-box settings. The best bet is to adjust your computer monitor to closeley match your camera's LCD.

My scren is not showing my info bar on the bottom and there is a one and a hlf inch black line on the right of my screen and ahalf ince black line on the upper portions of my screen and my screen itself if...


You can adjust your display through 1 of two ways.
1. Somewhere on your monitor are buttons that allow you to adjust your screen position, ( left- right-up-down, widen / stretch in both direction, up & down at the same time & left & right at the same time. If you still have the manual for the monitor it will explain how to do this. Every monitor is not the same & each monitor has their own way to adjust monitor positions.

2. This might be a bit harder but all you'll need is youe mouse.
Find an emty space on your desktop, ( yeah I know it's messed up right now, did I mention this would be harder?).
I want you to right click once on your desktop & that will open a small pop-up menue. Left click once on Properties

You have just opened your display Properties. ( I need to mention just like the monitor adjustment screen is different from one to another, your video card will also be different.) My instructions should be close for you to adjust your screen.

So you have Display Properties on your screen. Click the settings tab, than click the Advanced button. Here click the Adapter tab. Look down & you'll see a button ( List All Modes).
Click it. The mode screen will open. There is a scroll bar on the right. Slide the scroll bar down & pick out the setting you want.
Most people use setting - 1024 by 768, True Color (32bit), 60 Hertz
Click Ok & than Apply. Your screen should adjust it's self.
If it does not, than someone messed with the monitor adjustments & you'll have to re-adjust from the monitor.

Good luck!

Too much yellow in picture


The problem with the set is that the blue gun has gone weak, and not emitting at par with red and green guns in your picture tube. Turn of the blue screen and get the grainy display on the screen (detach the cable) and enter into service mode to fine tune until you get a perfect or black and white grain pattern.
