Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

2 Answers

Distortion of digital photos.

When I try to display digital photos, they are distorted in a sense that it makes objects and people look slightly shorter and wider. It was suggested before that I change the aspect ration to 1440 by 990. However, on the sliding scale the "Lesser" side is 800 x 600 and the "More" side is 1280 by 1024. There is no setting for 1440 x 990.

I don't know what system you have your monitor connected to, but most of the older video cards don't support 1440 by 990 resolution and you would not be able to produce a good sharp image with older cards either. You can play with the settings on your video card to find the most acceptable resolution, but you might need a better and newer video card.

Good Luck!!!

If the master output lights go above green (into yellow) the sound becomes slightly distorted even at low speaker levels. i have cleaned the output jacks but it is still distorted


Does the distortion ALSO appear when you listen with headphones? If not, the problem may be downstream. The driver for the mute control line to the mute transistors may have a problem. Make sure the mute is off.

The distortion mostly is caused by a wrong screen resolution. Choose another (smaller or larger) resolution and once you've found the correct resolution for your display card tne distortion will be gone.

Screen Distortion at certain Refresh Rates


Have you connected the laptop to another monitor and use the same refresh rates that cause the distortion? If the distortion appears on a different monitor, then I would have your laptop examined by a pc engineer, but, if the distortion only appears on the 997DF monitor, I suggest having the monitor checked at a repair shop, also, have you tried connecting the 997DF to a desktop PC, and use the same refresh rates?

Distorted color on image


You might have "color filter" settings. Turn the digital filters off. Here is what manual at p72 says. "You can take pictures using digital filters. The filters consist of color filters such as red, blue and green, a soft filter that produces a fuzzy effect. Color filters Eight colors, black-and-white, sepia, red, pink, violet, blue, green and yellow, are provided for the color filters. When you select a color filter in the Digital Filter mode, the display on the LCD monitor is filtered with the selected color, and the pictures are taken in that color."
