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. :)

Ha ha ha....just saw this post, but managed to fix the problem another way.

1) Tried adjusting the clock/pitch & phase controls on the monitor, but no luck
http://www.techmind.org/lcd/phasexplan.html

2) turned on the cleartype tuner as well as downloading the power toy w/ no success

http://www.microsoft.com/typography/cleartype/tuner/step1.aspx

3) although have a dell monitor, downloaded the intel embedded graphics adapter as suggested here
http://www.justanswer.com/questions/1jrjj-i-have-a-new-syncmaster-2232-monitor-the-drivers-are-installed

didn't seem to work, but after a bit of a pause noticed that the shadows were gone...YEAH! not sure if it was necessarily the adapter download, maybe it was one of the above, but the fix was a bit delayed after i made the changes.

Next time, i'll try ensuring the plug is tight.

Man, months with double imaging, saw this post, reached behind the screen and pushed the plug in, all good. Thanks a lot!

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

Posted on Aug 21, 2008

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

Posted on Aug 11, 2008

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

The monitor is showing doubles or shadows of every image on it. from icons on desktop to text in web browser and every other detail.


If it has a removeable cable between the PC and screen, try removing it and plugging it in and trading ends (plug the end that was in the PC into the back of the screen and vice-versa...) If the connector is even slightly loose or the cable is going bad it will cause the problem you're having, and as long as it's removeable you can easily get & replace the cable... Good luck!

Grey bands and shadowing


Uninstall the video driver from the Computer, restart the Computer then reinstall it. Furthermore, check for any updates for the video drivers.

You may also connect the monitor to any other normally functioning Computer to check if the lines remain there.

If it's so then the monitor requires servicing.

'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.

Shadowing of text


YOU ARE EXPERIENCING THE EFFECT OF GHOSTING.
iT CAN BE FIXED

cREATE A 1200X1600 100% WHITE .GIF TO USE AS A SCREEN SAVER. (IN WINDOWS YOU CAN ADD IT TO MY PICTURES SLIDESHOW)

Set this slide show to run after 2 minutes of non use.
Set the nonitor to power off in a short amount of non use.
say 15 minutes.
Do that for a couple of days and the ghosting affect will go away . You can then turn to a more reasonable screen saver.

Monitor display is blurry, with shadows and waves next to text


Jnanda,
Could be one of two related situations both have to do with built up magnetic flux:

!. If you have used the monitor for a significant amount of time and have never degaussed it that might be it.

To fix: Go to where your monitor's controls are (eg screen size/position, Brightness, Contrast, etc.). Providing that we are referring to an older style monitor (like a TV) and not a flat screen, you should find a degaussing button located there. This button is marked with a depiction of a horseshoe magnet. Press it.

If you have on screen settings control, hit the menu button and select the icon that looks like a horseshoe magnet.

You'll hear a buzz and the screen will go kooky for a moment.

You're then degaussed. Your problem should go away.

2. You may have moved the monitor close to a source of electromagnetic interference (or vice-versa) this will also cause that sort of thing you describe (remember that there are electrical lines in the walls (another source of EMI)

In that case move the monitor away from the EMI source or move the EMI source away from the monitor.

Remember that it could be both 1 and 2. So if the problem lessens but does not go away fully try both steps.
