Question about LG Flatron 915FT 19" CRT Monitor
My screen keeps having 'fuzzy lines' through it. This happens from time to time. I thought it might be a power issue (not enough) so I am now running PC & Monitor off separate points. I have also used the drivers I got with the monitor (i.e. ran the 915FTPLU.inf files through windows XP).
What I find is that the sceen distorts in certain areas - i.e. certain parts of text or images. This sometimes gets quite bad & happens on large parts of the screen.
The monitor is being powered by a 512Mb/AGP 8x card at 1024x768
It also has an independent power input
Any suggestios as to why this might be?
Is there a diagnostics tool that I can get for it?
Many thanks for your time & help
the only way you may get it to work is if you use the monitor a secondary device and also use the notebook monitor as well. But the problem may also be the vga connector converting the signal, as you may have to have a DVI connection on your monitor to obtain widescreen resolutions.

Doesn't look very good :( You can try returning to the "factory settings" in your monitor's menu. Maybe try the monitor in another computer to check whether your graphics card is faulty. But all in all it looks like a fault from the monitor :( Good Luck!

SOURCE: LG screen goes in stand by.
oke having a similar problem atm, this is what i have found so far. was trying to help a friend who has bought the same 19" LG monitor. When i connected the monitor to her PC i noticed that it was not the same connection as the previous one but it had the smaller blue connection..this shouldnt be a problem but it was. The monitor when powered up, showed LG logo then went into power saving mode. My next step was to try the monitor on my own PC to make sure it was working, When i did this the monitor got a signal but on the initial boot it did say that this monitor was not compatible currently the way i had it set up ( where i had it plugged in? the only place it can be) because of my graphics card. oke so atleast i knew the monitor was working and was recieving a signal.
the only difference i can see is when i put it in her PC it is not giving me this information which also did give 3 steps to solving the problem but didnt seem legit. the next step i will take is to try my monitor on her PC although im not sure i expect it to work.
i think it must be a) PC is now faulty or b) PC is not sending a signal to the monitor ( possibly due to the fact it is not the same connection as before.)
what i have seen on other similar posts says you should also listen for your PC starting up normally.
another thing i would like to know i think it can be usefull for this topic. are the people who are experiencing this problem in the same situation as me i.e. changing the type of connection used by the monitor from the larger to the smaller type?
id also liek to note that the monitor i have was bought on a tight budget from PC world.
only other help i can give to people with this problem is that it is much easier to see where the fault is when you have 2 PC's and 2 monitors i know this is not viable for many but if atall possible interchanging parts with the PC that is working correctly and the one black screening can help you see exactly what the problem is,
as far as i know aswell the main reason for a monitor to sleep is that its simply not getting a signal from the PC BUT on rare occasions it can be a fault in the monitor. IF you have another monitor with the same connection that you can get yto work on the same PC its the monitor with the problem, if u have a monitor that u know is working on another PC with the same connection but is not working on the PC in questions its a PC fault.
sorry for the jumble of words in this answer i tryed my best to explain, all my knowledge of PCs is from friends and self tought so ... hope it helped

Try it with another PC first just to be sure it is not video card problem. Basic LCD monitor and TV troubleshooting guide: Learn about bad caps: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague Capacitors kit: http://lcdalternatives.auctivacommerce.com/ he can make you a set of caps for you.
More likely that it has dying power supply due to bad caps with leaking/bulging tops a shown in my pictures here:
You should replace them in a set.

Or www.digikey.com just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.
