LACie 319 LCD 'smuge'

The monitor, when on and heated to normal specs has a smudge or smear . It's at the top about .12" down, across about 6" of the screen. What ever color I choose for the background the smudge takes on that color being darker; that's how I see it. I have attached to to 2 different box's, used both the analog and digital connections, still there. I was able to take a picture of the anomaly, talked with LaCie, sent it to them. They set it up and can not see anything wrong with the monitor.
I have used the cables on a different LCD monitor but no strange smear.
They want to send it back to me.
I called today and asked them to do a rigorous power supply check. I thought it may be a 'weak' power supply: thinking that LaCie's power in there shop is FAR better than mine in my home office. I have run a dedicated home-run to the main box at HO to connect my equipment.
OH yes, the small icons on the LaCie are not nearly as clear as the ones on the other monitor.
I am using native resolutions and speeds.
Any ideas?
thanks for your time,
Stephen

Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!

The document printed from samsung scx 4200 printer has smudges and dots.


When you say smudges, can you wipe the toner from the page with your fingers; or is it just smearing when it prints; but, the toner is affixed to the paper?

1) If you can smear it with your fingers; replace the fuser. It's not heating the toner properly
2) If it is smearing, but sticking; replace the DRUM.

I just had the same problem! Was afraid I needed a new video card. (--a suggestion found on another forum.) But a friend suggested a low tech solution. After turning the computer off, I opened the CPU casing and blew pressurized air inside to clear the dust out and the problem went away. Hope this helps.

Blurring of images and text


mt, the 6 to 8 lines you were seeing were most likley the prelude to the end of the monitor. If the problem only occurs when the screen saver comes on then I could say the driver maybe being corrupted by a certain screensaver picture or program. When the monitor warms up to a certain temprature the electronics start to fail. You may want to turn off the monitor while your not right in front of it to cool it down and prolong its use.
