Question about Dell E771a 17" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

My monitor suddenly has become distorted. It appears scrunched horizontally, from both the right and left sides. The whole monitor image is visible, but it is distorted. I have checked the cables, reset the settings via the buttons on the front of the monitor, and removed the driver, none of which has made any difference.

Try connecting the monitor to a different computer (desktop/laptop).

If the symptoms persist, it's time to responsibly recycle the CRT, and to replace it with a 19-inch LCD monitor.

Cinema mode should be highlighted hit autoset on monitor. Next hit the FUN button and highlight the 4:3 screen setting.

Screen stretched out horizontally and distorting picture. None of the settings buttons appear to solve this. I can shift the image vertically or horizontally; but not squeeze it horizontally.


There are adjustments in the size of the items on a screen under the screen properties, settings. If you right click on the desktop screen and then properties you can get there. There is at least one size which causes a distortion of images being displayed. This may be your problem.

Weird water-like image distortion


this is electronic advice,dont do with yourself if you dont have experince about electronics,it will be very dangerous...if you have experience then you do this...
you open the lcd and you remove the power supply chips, it contains more capacitors like 1200mF 16v..i think so..but check the voltage if it is correct in the volt meter,caused the sounds like power distortion..if the voltage is less the screen will be "trembling and shaking, its like very frequent water ripples. This problem though dissapears as you move more and more to the right, but its clearly visible to at least no the 1/3 of the screens horizontal length." check

Acer AL2216WBD LCD Monitor Problem


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.

Screen image display distortion


Hello.
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.
