Heat from monitor - Computer Monitors


Answers :

The monitor,screen,adapter or display of a\015\012computer is the primary user interface. Monitor problems are some of the\015\012most common computer problems since the voltages inside a monitor can be as\015\012high as 10 KV. Many of the problems can be fixed yourself by simply changing\015\012the settings but in a few cases you may have to either replace or repair\015\012the monitor.

1. The monitor/display flickers
Check the refresh rate. If the refresh rate is 50 Hz/ 60Hz (depending on\015\012which country you stay), it can be affected by interference from electrical\015\012power signals like those from fluorescent lamps . Increasing the refresh\015\012rate to 72Hz is recommended , since higher refresh rates reduce eyestrain and\015\012headaches
2. The display works fine\015\012initially, then after some time there are black lines on the screen and then\015\012the display disappears
There is a problem with the copper\015\012windings in the CRT monitor which are getting heated. It is better to replace\015\012the monitor
3. For a new monitor, you get a\015\012blank screen or distorted image.
Many monitors, especially LCD\015\012monitors, can only handle resolutions which are less than the native\015\012resolution, so set the resolution at the native resolution only. The native\015\012resolution of a LCD display is lower for smaller LCD screen sizes, typically\015\0121024 X 768 for 15" LCD. CRT monitors have a better resolution than\015\012LCD displays
4. The display on the monitor is\015\012not steady
This is a result of power system interference from users of the power grid,\015\012particularly UPS, power tools and heavy machinery. Try changing the position of\015\012the monitor.

5. There is a shadow on the images on the display
Try reducing the contrast setting on your monitor.
6. Monitor becomes blank occasionally
Could be a problem with the\015\012display card, check with another monitor. The monitor display cord and power\015\012cable should be fixed properly and there should be no loose connection.
7. Dark Spots on the Screen.
Move speakers,USB modem and other magnetic devices away from the monitor.
8. Incorrect Colors - red may become dark brown, blue becomes purple.
Check your video cables and connectors for bent or broken pins and wires.\015\012Sometimes there may be a problem with your display card, which can be retuned\015\012using a software available with monitor technicians.
9. Run Antivirus to scan corrupt software files.Virus cause distorted characters and images.
10.\015\012Set your monitor/display pixels to the software requirements. some\015\012softwares require higher pixels to run or to be displayed. some media\015\012players, web applications, video games applications and photo\015\012editors/view softwares have option to view photos on low or high quality
