There is bright green vertical line occurred on middle of the screen


Hi,
I am afraid your computer's screen has a defect. You should apply to nearest service. If your computer is still in the guarentee period thats fine. There may be exists different guarantee conditions for LCD screens, (death pixel guarantee) and some brands give this against even 1 death pixel. You have lots of death or distorted pixels (a line). Do not lost time and apply to your vendor.

Regards.

Signal outof range


  • Make sure the pins on the video cable are not bent or damaged.
  • Make sure there are no extension cables or switch boxes attached to the monitor.
  • Verify that you have the proper drivers installed for the video card.
  • Verify the problem at all possible resolutions and refresh rates.
  • Make sure the refresh rate does not exceed maximum value for any resolution.
  • Test the monitor on a different computer.
  • Contrast is recommended to be set at a higher range while the brightness should be set at middle range. This helps to increase the text clarity while reducing the bright background.
  • If your monitor is equipped with moire control, adjusting this may improve the clarity of the text. Moire is a wavy distortion pattern caused by interference between the dot pitch of the CRT and the picture signal. The pattern may vary depending on the screen amplitude, contrast, brightness, and other characteristics of the input signal.
  • Monitor's performance may be affected by the Earth's magnetic field. Try rotating the monitor to different directions to improve misconvergence.
  • Most video cards offer a software utility that changes the frequencies and sync polarities for all resolutions. If the setup does not match with the monitor's characteristics, an incorrect signal may be displayed on the screen. Sometimes, the image may also appear blurry.

    Flatron w2043s 20" there is distortion on all letters and numbers etc, its as if its ran out of ink ,spoils the picture big time


    The distortion mostly is caused by a wrong screen resolution. Choose another (smaller or larger) resolution and once you've found the correct resolution for your display card tne distortion will be gone.

    Sony a100 distortion dots - Im getting several


    If these are single pixels on the LCD screen, they are normal. From pg. 8 of the user's guide:

    "The LCD monitor is manufactured using extremely high-precision technology so over 99.99% of the pixels are operational for effective use. However, there may be some tiny black points and/or bright points (white, red, blue or green in color) that constantly appear on the LCD monitor. These points are normal in the manufacturing process and do not affect the images in any way. "

    This may also be helpful.

    "images may trail across the LCD monitor in a cold location. This is not a malfunction. When turning on the camera in a cold location, the LCD monitor may become temporarily dark. "

    Peavey Bass Amp TKO115s


    Start with a clean setting - zero cut and zero gain on the Eq. Play a song close to the amp, and then move away, playing the same notes. Do you still get the distortion? Change lower the input gain and repeat the test. Lower the output gain and repeat. Are any outboard distortion pedals in the mix, such as overdrive? Eliminate them. Run straight through from your axe to the amp. Check for any distortion settings. Set everything including reverb to zero. When the distortion disappears, this is your base setting.
    Change only ONE parameter at a time. When the distortion comes back, you have found your problem.+

    Adjust the pixels. Right click on desktop, properties, appearences, advanced and there should be a slide bar to adjust your pixels. Make them larger, ex. 1440X900 instead of 680X400
