Double Images / Shadows on the monitor screen

I have what I would call double images or shadows on the images on my monitor. There is a shadow like image to the left of each image and after sentences / lines of text but not with indidual letters of text.
I sthere any adjustment I can make within windows XP for this problem. This has periodically occured but usually resolved after a restart.I've played with screen resolution but clearly isn't doing it.

    Viewsonic VX2235wm LCD Monitor exhibiting "ghosting, double-imaging or shadowing" of images and/or text with "ghost" or "drop-shadow" immediately to the right of image and/or text. Net results in images and/or text being "out-of-focus."

    Restarting computer and turning LCD monitor off and on again had no effect - neither improving nor degrading further the image. Changing screen resolution also had no effect.

    My monitor is compaq v410 and is somewhat out of focus. You can hardly read text and see clear outline of pictures. I found out that one of the 15 pins on the cable for connection to my cpu is broken or missing. Do you think replacing the cable will solve the problem or is my monitor already aging?

    We have an HP Flat screen that is doing the double imaging. No apparent reason that this started, nor do I know what to check to see what's going on. Any suggestions or HELP......

    images on the screen had a shadow or streak following them. I changed out the display card (twice) with no success. Changed out the display cable and it worked!!!

    I had the same problem on a LCD display (dual monitor setup with imac) and the plug just wasn't plugged in all of the way.

I read through other solutions to this problem because I had the same problem. I checked to make sure electrical cords were properly attached, and vola! problem solved! I had no idea this problem could be fixed just by checking the cord connections. Thanks a million for posting this solution. I had been putting up with the shadowing, streaking for months! You really made my day.

Try repositioning cables, cords may be too close to a power source that is interfering w/your signal!
Worked for me!

Your monitor is suffering from "ghosting", or what is probably a sign of age on most CRT type monitors (non flat screen). There's no solution inside Windows, although there might be an adjustment on your monitor you could try (sharpness, etc). You could try powering off and powering on the monitor again after a brief period.
Unfortunately the ultimate solution to this problem is to get a new monitor. Newer LCD monitors don't suffer from this problem and are also a lot easier on the eyes. :)

  1. I have the same Viewsonick LCD and have that problem

Try swapping the blue ended monitor cable around the other way. and ensure the cable is tightly fitted and screwed in at both ends.

I was having the exact same problem with my Viewsonic LCD VA1930wm and I came to realize that my VGA cable was not plugged in all the way. I would suggest swapping out your cable to see if that might be problem

I see double images and shadows and the shadows are outlined in red and green. Is this a "do-it-yourself" fix or does it require a skilled technician?


Sounds like a convergence failure, here is a tutorial I made:

'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.

Multi-color double images or shadows and curved screen


Alrighty, very common problem on this set. Here's a rundown of the repair if you're a DYI:

With the back cover off you'll notice a set of boards on the bottom of the TV and a pair of boards sitting up over the two bottom boards. The problem lies in the upper-right hand board which is the color convergence power supply. Either replace or repair this board. The repair involves the main power mosfet (a three legged regulator on a heat sink) and two diodes next to it.

Next, the bottom right hand board needs to be removed and a fuse replaced next to the flyback. If you are versed in electronics I can detail the repair further otherwise you're going to have to have a shop do the repair.

Shadows and text curved. Double images


The convergence IC's need to be replaced. The generic part # on them is STK392-110. This is not easily done by yourself.

Does the magic focus work on your set ?

If it doesn't you must replace the convergence Ic's with a kit that is available through your local parts distributor

You must replace all resistors in the kit
If you are not good at soldering and de- soldering have a local tv shop do it for you

Good luck
