Having problems with your HP L1706 17" LCD Monitor ?

Shadowing of text

\015 My monitor now displays a faint shadowing behind all of the text and images on the screen which makes it really tiring to read and use. I have had the monitor for 18months and this has happened in the last 2 weeks. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for your help.\015

Answers :

This may help...SIMPLE ! The "shadowing" you talk about is due to cables in back of your computer, touching or too close together. I had this happen to mine. I moved the cables apart, and no more shadows !! Sounds too easy, but it works. Takes a few seconds. Immediate results.
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.

Ghosting My monitor suddenly has dark gray lines going horizontally all across the screen! The lines range from dark gray to light gray in colour and vary in thickness. These lines seem to sometimes correspond with things onscreen (for example this text box has lines extending out the top and bottom to the edge of the screen) but not always (if I am in microsoft word or something with a blank document it still has annoying lines) The screen itself also appears darker (less bright) than it used t
