Question about Umax Astra 2000U Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Scanner screen My scanner developed a thin green line down the left and a broader yellow line down the right; they both increased in width until I was left with a space only large enough to scan a postcard. I would let it rest after about three scans and could get the narrower bands back. Today I went to use it again, but this time the entire screen was dark green and, unlike the earlier banding, not even translucent. The lamp is on, no less bright than as new, and it moves as it should.

Screen too large for pc


Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the drop down list.
Left-click on the Settings tab.

Under the subheading Screen resolution in the middle, does it state
1400 x 1050?
That is the native screen resolution.

If not;

1) The down arrow with the green tip, and green 'cap', is a Slider.
Left-click on it, and hold the left mouse button down.
Now slide it to the left, or right, until 1400 x 1050 appears.

2) Also;
The Color quality to the right is supposed to state -
Highest (32-bit)

If not click on the blue down arrow to the right, and in the drop down list click on -> Highest (32-bit)

Go to the bottom right, and click on Apply.
Now go to the bottom right, and click on OK.
A small window may come up, and state that these settings will take effect, unless you do not want them to.

You want them to. Do nothing, allow the countdown.

Regards,

I have a old CRT Proview monitor. It has developed a problem of exceeding display sidways, means the display from left and right side of screen goes beyond, I have adjust manually left and right to view...


Well, if the adjustment buttons don't work, then probably the control unit in the monitor is broken, or a key is stuck. If the control unit needs servicing, I doubt if it's feasible to have it repaired, given the fact that it's an old monitor and new or used nice slim LCD monitors can be purchased cheaply nowadays.

The screen is failing. A conductive strip from a flex connector to the glass panel is losing contact when cold. Any warranty left? extended warranty? Usually not repairable, screen has to be replaced and cost as much as a new set....

Hi. i have an LG 42inch plasma, approx 18 months old. about 2 months ago, a green stripe developed down the right hand side of the screen, approx 1.5 inches wide. last week a 2nd stripe the same width...


Sadly, the plasma screen is failing. The green strip is no longer functioning properly and the failures will continue to progress.

If still under warranty, get it exchanged.

Thin red horizontal lines across screen


While looking at your TV, remove the bottom right speaker grill. There you will find a cover held by a couple of screws. Remove the screws and behind the cover you will find the "focus pack" which is a group of 6 adjustment screws. The top screws adjust (in order from left to right) the brightness of Red, Green and Blue.

What you will do preferably at night (or with the room dark) turn the top left adjustment screw (Red) all the way to the left and then gradually turn it to the right until the point you can see the retrace line and then turn it slightly to the left until the retrace line disappears. That's it! You can do this for all three colors - if need be. These do go out of adjustment every now and then. The 3 screws on the bottom are to focus the colors individually to minimize "bloom" on the screen. It's best to be in service mode on your TV when doing this OR open up the cabinet and cover (with something) the other 2 colors while you adjust the focus of the color you're adjusting.

Good Luck!
