Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor

1 Answer

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.
I have a Gateway FPD2275W monitor that is LCD and it has the same ghosting image described elsewhere, so I guess it does occur on LCDs

    I had/have the same problem with my Gateway 22" monitor less than 6 months after i bought it. I called customer service and they shipped me a new one (i returned the original in the same box) and now less than 6 months it's happening again. having a harder time with customer service this time. I wouldn't recommend these products to anyone.

    I am having the same issue with a Dell LCD screen. Shadow on the letters. I am thinking it might be loose connections or bad cables. Any suggestions.

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.

I received this information from www.beginnercode.com

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.
