Hi scotta38

Any new monitor will just plug in for you mate. As for a brand, or source, I find that governmet auctions are the best place to get one. or places like graysonline I am in Australia, but I am sure sites luke this exist everywhere, Ebay can land a bargain also.

regards
robotek

THE IMAGES ARE BLURRED / HAZY AND TAKES AN EFFORT TO READ.


It's time for a new monitor. Loss of focus is one of the symptoms of a picture tube (CRT) that has reached the end of its life. There is an internal focus adjustment that might make some improvement, but it will never look right again. The only cure is to replace the tube, but that is completely uneconomical. A new LCD monitor will cost less than a replacement CRT, if one can even be found. And setting up the replacement needs special tools and programming software not available. Dispose of this one appropriately (take it to a recycler to keep hazardous materials out of the trash) and treat yourself to a new monitor.

Samsung Syncmaster 2220wm. All of sudden, the monitor went black. It does not show any light at all on the screen. The power light is on (light comes on green). I connected a different monitor, it worked...


Power capacitors on the power board most likely gone. You could get a qualified technician to investigate and repair by replacing the blown capacitiors ( you may notice a charring smell from the back of the monitor if they have gone). Cost of replacement is however likely to be more than the monitor replacement is worth. unlike CRT monitors, these are not designed to be easily repaired

I have Dell 1907fpc monitor. The image flickers and finally darkens. how to resolve the problem?


It sounds like your LCD Backlight/s are going out. To fix you will need to replace the LCD screen inside the Monitor. It may be more feasible to replace the Monitor.

I have a black spot on my crt samsung monitor screen


I know some people still prefer old CRT monitors over more modern LCD monitors even today. Unfortunately Cathode Ray Tubes or CRTs aren't serviceable since they are a factory vacuum sealed unit and this probably why no-one has replied. The black dot is probably a burn mark on the inside of the CRT if it's always there. When there's a problem with the CRT itself there's nothing one can do except replace the unit and it's not worth changing the tube as it will cost much more than the monitor is worth and anyway I'd be very surprised if they even bother making these old parts any more. One can buy 17" CRT monitors as cheap as 10 pounds and larger CRT monitors for a bit more at recycling businesses like Speedie Computers near Birmingham in the UK, so if you you still want to use an old CRT monitor, replacing the whole unit is certainly the best option. There's currently still an excess of old CRT monitors that need recycling after being replaced by newer LCD monitors and recycling companies like Speedie often have literally pallet loads piled up high and they'll be only too glad to let you take one or more off their hands for next to nothing. It's better if you can find somewhere local to yourself rather than purchasing online if at all possible or you'll probably end up paying more in postage than the cost of a replacement used CRT monitor because they're fragile, heavy and bulky to transport.

Yellowing screen after 15 minute great working!


styber,
While CRT monitors are very good with color rendition, they do have a warm up time (at least 30 minutes before to get the truest color they can give) they also lose brightness and contrast over time. Since you do Photshop work and color is important to you, you should consider a new monitor, if you want to stick with the CRT style they are still available cheaper now because of the popularity of the thinner lightweight space saving LCD's, but you can get a new LCD which will be better that the .26 dot pitch you are used to on the HP. Depending on the extent you rely on your monitor for color accuracy, you can find a reasonable replacement monitor all they way up to an outrageously priced model which has lots of adjustments. Be be advised all monitors are going to look different and all should be calibrated, either visually with software based adjustment or with a hardware / software monitor calibration. That's a whole different solution - ask if you want to know more. I personally went from a 21" Sony CRT, huge and heavy to a 20" widescreen LCD, no regrets, the images are clear the display is stable. So go and look at them at your local computer store. The cost to have the CRT repaired combined with shipping (the weight is a factor) was just under the cost of a new LCD. There are very few user serviceable parts for monitors and repairing is not as economical or practical as it was back in the days of "TV Repair" shops.
