Horizontal/Vertical Postion of Image on LCD Monitor
Just got it back from Acer repair in Roundtop, Texas AND the image is distorted horizontally. Manual doesn't give clear instructions on how to toggle between available buttons to fix this problem as well as others.
Re: Horizontal/Vertical Postion of Image on LCD Monitor
The controls for focus adjustment are on the flyback transformer, (that big black thing on the left hand side (usually) of the monitor with the thick red wire that goes to the CRT.) the flyback may have 1,2,3 or even 4 knobs on it. 3 of these would be labled SCREEN (bottom knob of flyback. handles brightness)
FOCUS 1 + FOCUS 2 (focus adjustments. these are what you need to play with) and the 4th knob (some old mitsubishi workstation monitors had these) i do not know, it wasnt labled and HV adjustment was on the deflection board

The horizontal deflection coil is shorted. There is no way to fix that, the entire tube would have to be replaced and that would cost as much as a new monitor.
Just buy a second-hand LCD monitor from here http://www.diabloscomputer.ro/monitoare-second-hand-fujitsu-siemens-p19-2 Asta l-am luat eu si are o imagine excelenta.
If your computer does not have a video card that supports the correct
resolutions for the widescreen monitors, then your picture may get
stretched. Much like watching normal tv programs on a an hd set. It
will eitther strech or cut off the picture.
Try different settings in you computer display settings.
What you are reporting is a problem in the pincushion circuit in the horizontal section of your CRT monitor. Usually this is from an electrolytic capacitor that is no longer willing to play nice with all the other components.
It is repairable, but get an estimate first. If the repair bill appears to be around $100, you would be better off to put a few more dollars with that and buy an LCD TFT monitor.
If you are quoted $25 or $30, it is probably worth having repaired. Just keep in mind that these older CRT monitors have age on their components, and once repaired, it will still be an old monitor.
Only you can decide which choice is right for you. At least now you have a few facts to help make the decision.
I hope this helps.
