  • 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.

    I have epson emp700 projector - blue horizontal bars comming in picture but when i adjust the focus it goes but picture shows outof focus

    i didn't get your question well. so you have good picture with blue horizontal bars. and when you change focus you have out of focus picture with no bars ?
    try to do factory reset cos it seems like you have some settings wrong.
    after that try to see if bars coming with signal connected or no.
    if its only with signal try different cable and different input.

    I cannot get 3/4 of my channels. Says i am not suscribed. I just installed a replacement receiver. Service tech to come out sat.

    Hi dillis1940I see you can not get ¾ channels, I am very sorry they are not showing. Thereare some things you can check when this happens, the first thing you will wantto do is unplug the receiver for 10 seconds and then after plugging it back init will reacquire the signal and download the program guide. If after that itdid not bring back the channels you will want to press the buttons ofMenu-6-1-1 and select Check Switch and TEST, after the test completes exit outof all menus and the receiver will reacquire the signal and download theprogram guide and you will have all your programming.

    No network coverage signal

    If you are not receiving a signal ... you are out of range. You will have to move within range of the signal tower to use your device. I suggest you contact your service provider concerning this. There is otherwise little or nothing that you can do until you get within range of the tower signal.

    Thanks for your visit today.

    several things check the base is connected to mains power and switched on.
    You have obviously checked to see if it is outof range,and checked the batteries.
    If you are using more than one base check that you ar connected to the right one.
    Also if you have too many appliances connected to the phone point they won`t run.
