It sounds as if you have "ghosting". Has your monitor been moved recently? Do you have any electrical cords running over or on the monitor cable? have you changed the video cable to see if it still does it? I have seen this issue be solved by using a good quality VGA cable, cheap ones usually ghost.

Let me know =)

All my characters are showing shadows is this a problem with the monitor or with the computer?

Hook a spare monitor to the computer, if okay! the problem is in the HP monitor. Now if symptom is the same on both screens, the Video Graphics Card is defective. Last thought replace the video cord from the computer to the monitor just to be sure.

Fix my desktop monitor HP w19e goes black after a few seconds. the screen displays then goes black. I changed most capacitors 470uf. I didn't change two other capacitors A 22uf 50V and 100uf 450V. I...

w19e (2006) 12 year old relic, legacy monitors, sure. CCLF junk.''
(1440 x 900). (not over this resolution)!\
HP does not sell parts this old !!!

get a new monitor, fixing cost more than new and for sure refurbs at $50. (unless labor is free, ? even then too much)
first off its too old , the CCFL are no good now.
"back lamps"

are you going to replace those. some are near impossible to remove and not wreck the LCD array.!
1: turn off power saver and timer in the menu OSD yet.
that is first first. (the book shows this feature missing) yours.

2: then does the flash light trick show there is data there, omg
the data is there, the CCFL lamps are dead. or the inverter.

see your boards here, see the brown one bottom 2 cream connectors. those are the 2x 500vdc power jacks to the CCFL tubes
if that is dead, ebay has it for 15 bucks. (what deal no)
but if the tubes are bad good luck there.
the first test would be the flash light test

w19e-ysl4vcr25ekwcyxfuustmq5b-5-0.jpg why own such a monitor if the ccfls can not be removed.
I avoid them all an buy 2010 and newer with LED backlamps.

The monitor is showing doubles or shadows of every image on it. from icons on desktop to text in web browser and every other detail.

If it has a removeable cable between the PC and screen, try removing it and plugging it in and trading ends (plug the end that was in the PC into the back of the screen and vice-versa...) If the connector is even slightly loose or the cable is going bad it will cause the problem you're having, and as long as it's removeable you can easily get & replace the cable... Good luck!

My hp w19e will turn on and the desktop screen will also come on then after 3 or 4 seconds the screen goes black

It can be many things that causes the problem. You need to inspect the caps, voltages, solder joints.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Text has a new, trailing shadow to the right

Try opening system prefrences, you can access this from the apple menu top left or from the dock. Go to displays and se if you are using the best profile for the montor. This is odd, usually like you said this is a crt timing problem. Work in prefrence and change the size and brightness.

'Shadows' behind all texts and images on the screen

[u][b]LCD Monitor Shadow Effect[/b][/u]
This problem is best described as the LCD monitor "Shadow Effect".
The solution to this very simple. No software or hard ware changes required.
The cables that are connected to the LCD monitors are causing the problem. Its also called as electromagnetic noise or electrical noise.
[u][b]Solution: [/b][/u]Keep the two cables - (power cable and moitor display cable), that are connected to the LCD monitor as far away as possible with each other and also away from other electrical cables.
Thats it. Your shadow effect is fixed.
Thank you.

Im seeing shadow/double images of text,icons etc.even a system recovery has not helped.what is causing the problem?

Most probably you have a problem with the connection between your graphics adapter socket & your monitor. Check this connection & make sure it is not loose & that the cable connecting your computer to the monitor is not damaged or is not running very close to a source of electromagnetic interference.
