Question about Dell UltraSharp 1704FPT 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Degraded graphic images

My flat panel monitor has begun having problems displaying pictures. The pictures, my own files, and those in ads looked ragged and appear to have small "blocks" of color that are visible rather than being in-focus and sharply defined. I've used the monitor controls to reset the monitor to its original factory settings. That didn't help. I've looked to see if there are any other drivers available, but I've only had the unit about 4 months and I've not found any. Any suggestions as to why the monitor is suddenly not displaying pictures correctly? Thanks.

Images are too big for monitor

You need a picture editing software: eg Photoshop, or Microsoft Office picture manager to resize of the pictures. make a backup of the files before modify them

My crt monitor has a white ghost image to the right. It looks like JPEG artifacts. I've replaced the monitor and I've tried another graphics card, but it's still there. The PC is an HP d325.

A ghost on your screen is usually caused by a second or reflection of the same image getting into your monitor, and the space between the real image ant the ghost is the delay in time or extra distance the second image travels before it is displayed on your screen. It is usually caused by a defective video cable or a cable longer than usual like 8 feet or more. Also is your monitor plugged into the same outlet as the computer, and is the case on your computer as all are possible reasons for your problem. Some times adding a ground wire from monitor to computer can correct problem. This can be a problem that takes some real detective work to find, and all I can do is suggest some possible causes.

DISPLAY ALL SQUEEZED APART

Hi there.
You need to set the screen resolution.
Go to the control panel and chose display settings, you can set a resolution you are comfortable with there.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Getting lines across the monitor screen

It may have one of reasons:
1. "Dirty" supplying voltage in the monitor - check all electrolytic capacitor.
2. Bad controller chip - check if it gets extremely hot when working, also you may see darkened area on other side of the PCB where that chip is located.
3. Loosed connection between controller PCB and the display itself - disconnect the cable and clean contacts, especially of blade connector on display side, check if there are some overpressed contacts.

Old monitor not recognized by new computer, stuck in power save. I just bought a low-end machine from Ibuypower for my parents, to be used primarily for the internet, word processing, and work purposes,nothing complicated. But their old Dell UltraSharp 17'' monitor will not display anything. It's in its powersave mode while the computer boots up, but does not seem to begetting any kind of signal otherwise. I've used both the VGA and DVI hookups, neither have produced any change or response. The monitor was working just fine yesterday with the old Dell PC; there is no other monitor or PC available for me to test the monitor or new Ibuypower system with; I am writing this from a crappy ancient laptop I found in storage, circa 1998ish. I have also switched the monitor between digital and analog mode several times, but it remains in powersave. Wiggling the mouse or hitting any key like it says to bring it out of power save has not worked, although I know the keyboard and mouse are working because even blindly I have been able to click on and open things on the desktop of the new computer. I have respectable computer knowledge so you don't need to dumb-down responses for me too much - yes, the power's on and it's plugged in and all the usual stuff. I'm just perplexed because I've never had a problem with a monitor before, certainly not as silly as ''plugged it in and it doesn't work''.
