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

  • 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.

My screen on hp 1907 went blank, my 13 yr old nephew started punching all the buttons on the monitor over and over and hitting the on and off button. Now I am having a problem with my screen going black...

I think it's pretty clear he messed something up. Try checking the VGA cable (the blue one) that's hooked up to both you computer and monitor. Check if any pins are bent or broken. If not, make sure they're securely plugged in and try booting up. If it still doesn't work, then I'm afraid he may have knocked some connection in the motherboard out of whack. I hope it's just a slight VGA problem. Hope this helps!

How do I fix my screen from being blurry? I have an AccuSync LCD 72vw with AT&T services.

Hello: Try the following:

Signal cable should be completely attached to the computer.
Use the OSM Image Adjust controls to focus and adjust display by increasing or
decreasing the FINE control. When the display mode is changed, the OSM Image
Adjust settings may need to be readjusted.
Check the monitor and your display card with respect to compatibility
and recommended signal timings.
If your text is garbled, change the video mode to non-interlace and use 60Hz refresh rate.

Replaced IP board on Samsung 930B now other problems.

Try a little backtracking....Check all internal connections. Make sure you didn't leave any insulator out allowing pc contact to case where it should not be. Make sure no wiring is pinched under screw or pc card causing a short to case.

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!

Monitor calibration

In the menu, goto colour temp settings and adjust as needed.
The last item (from memory here) is an option to reset the monitor back to factory defaults, you could try that also.
Hope that solves your issue.

Flyback transformers usually have 2 adjustable rods - 1 is for focus the other is for screen (G2) voltage. try turning Clockwise the Screen adjust with brightness-contrast at max. Till you see white diagonal lines, then go back until the lines disappear - then tune the brightness to your desired level.
