    Thanks and you are right, I'm not comfortable doing that since I really don't have that type of experience.

  • msrozz Jul 31, 2008

    I have no experience doing that. Plus, it seems the more I try to adjust it, as well as the size, etc. of the screen for Vista, the worse it becomes. It still looks great as a television, but not as a computer screen.

    Also, I'm having problems adjusting it...the pincushion, and everything else. Is there a way to do a reset to factory condition?

    Thanks!

  • msrozz Aug 12, 2008

    Okay, how do I reset it to factory specs.? The pincushion is out of whack and everything else since I have been trying to adjust it.

    Thanks!

Hi,

I have posted this response to similar problems.

Your display being fuzzy as you described is indicative of either:
a. weak picture tube; or
b. component failure or deterioration.

Even if it were a weak picture tube or deterioration, it is still possible to "squeeze" a few more usable time out of the monitor. You simply have to adjust the focus control. Normally, this is accessible from the rear of the electronic circuit board and is a part of the Flyback transformer (FBT). Below is an image of a sample FBT. Pls notice the two (2) protrusions, one of them is marked as Screen and the other as the Focus. You need to adjust the focus till it satisfies your visual requirement or preference.

A word of caution. This procedure is not recommended if you have no TV/Monitor repair experience. It is not a fix. It is as earlier stated, squeezing in just a few more usable time. The unit would have to be adjusted "live" with the cover off. You need to be familiar with electronic components, tools and circuitry as well as working with powered devices and extremely High Voltage. The monitor may have to be operated with insulated support since the back cover will not be attached. Additionally, you may need to use a mirror to check if you adjusted it as you want it.

As you try to adjust it with an insulated screwdriver, you will notice that there is mid point where the focus will just be about right. You may have to adjust a couple of times to get the setting as you want it.

Should you feel uncomfortable doing this, perhaps you may need to seek the assistance of a qualified TV/Monitor technician.

Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

    Hi again,

    Appreciate the update. Most experienced TV techs or computer monitor techs should be able to do that in a few minutes. It would take more time removing the casing/back cover than the actual alignment.

    Cheers.

I'm assuming that you have tested the other monitor by using another cable so in that case the video card on your pc is dying, replace it.

Display problem


A fuzzy display is not likely to by caused by programs on your computer. Is this an LCD flat panel monitor or a regular CRT monitor?? If it's a CRT, the problem could be with the high-voltage power supply, which would need to be diagnosed by an experienced computer1.gif or electronics technician.

Check to see if there is a small focus knob on the back. If so try turning it back and forth three or four times to "clean" it....then adjust for correct focus.

Symptoms like this can also be caused by accumulated dust inside the monitor.

Hi,

 

My name is Todd and I'm with Dell's online outreach group.  Have you tried hooking that monitor up to another system to see whether it's the monitor itself or the system causing the problem? 

 

Is the color distortion always there, or is it only happening at certain times or with certain applications or programs?


Let me know if you're able to try this monitor on another system, or another monitor with this system.  If not, we can try a few different things to test it.

 

Thank you,

 

Todd
