Hi - Your monitor has a built in degaussing feature that executes every time you turn the monitor on. To perform extra degaussing, turn your your monitor off for at lest 30 minutes then turn it back on. This will cause it do a more thorough degaussing as opposed to just turning your monitor off and then turning it right back on. If this answered your question PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

Shivering screen


Shaking or trembling of a computer screen is often caused by interference from another device that is within a couple feet.
It can also be caused by another monitor close by.
If the removal of these objects does not stop the trembling, the monitor may have built up magnetism and need to be degaussed.
Find the menu button for your monitor.
This is usually on the front of the monitor.
It is sometimes on the side of the monitor.
Push the menu button. Scroll down until you find the screen option.
Select "Screen."
Scroll down to the degauss option.
Select "Degauss."
Select "OK."
The screen will make a tuning sound, as if you hit a guitar string.
The screen will shake and vibrate.
The shaking should now be gone.
If it is not, it will need to be looked at by a professional.

Slightly out of focus. Is there an (internal) adjustment, and if so, where?


over time the shadow mask picks up a magnetic charge that interferes with the focus of the electron beams which makes the image look fuzzy or out of focus...to fix this.. most monitors have a deguassing coil/button..look for a DEGAUSS button or in the menu selection on the monitor..Degaussing usually makes a "thunk" sound and the screen will go crazy for a moment ..

Monitor distortion


Hey edwardaaron,

If you are encountering any kind of visible distortion on your computer monitor, there are a couple of things that I would suggest.

First, if you have a cathode ray tube (CRT) monitor, you may want to try manually degaussing the monitor. Whenever a CRT monitor is in use, it slowly builds up a magnetic charge that can interfere with its operation. Degaussing then, is the process by which CRT devices rid themselves of this excess magnetic charge. This is normally done whenever a monitor is first turned on, but many monitors will also have either a button on the front control panel you can press or an option in the main menu to perform a manual degauss.

In many cases, the degauss option will be marked with a horseshoe or magnet-shaped picture. Once you've selected this function, you may notice a metallic-sounding "twang" noise, followed by one or two "clicking" noises as the image on the screen is reset. Keep in mind that images on the screen may appear to vibrate and color may distort for a few seconds after you do so, but this is a normal part of the degaussing process. The screen should return to normal after a few seconds.

Second, interference can also be caused by placing your computer speakers too close to the monitor. Many speakers will produce a magnetic field of their own, which only adds to the magnetic field generated by your monitor. In this case, repositioning your computer speakers should help minimize the problem.

If degaussing fails (or you don't have a CRT monitor), you may wish to then test the cable connections to your computer. In some instances, simply replacing your monitor cable will resolve these types of problems.

You may also be encountering a problem where your monitor is simply set on the incorrect refresh rate. If the refresh rate is not correctly set, a monitor may display a "wavy" image or appear as if lines are periodically scrolling across the screen. Without knowing the exact make and model of your monitor however, I would not be able to provide any suggestions on how to change this setting - you would need to contact the manufacturer or refer to your owner's manual for specific instructions.

The worst case scenario would be if you are encountering an actual hardware failure. Both the video card and monitor can cause images to be distorted if they are not functioning properly, and even power supplies have been known to cause other components to sporadically malfunction. If you are unsure how to perform a hardware diagnostic, I would strongly suggest speaking with your local computer repair technician or a Geek Squad® agent at your local Best Buy™ store for further assistance.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

hello wayne,

If this is a CRT screen. . then this applies.

if you have discoloration on your CRT tube monitor (due to a magnet being place near the actual tube), (i.e Speakers)
Most new Monitors have a magnetic degaussing circuit built in the Click the Menu button on the monitor and look for "Degauss". If that doesn't fix the problem.
