Having problems with your HP w1907 LCD Monitor ?

HP w1907 screen distortion

\015 My monitor has started occasionally going all distorted. It looks like someone took a wet rag and smeared the display from top to bottom - all I see is vertical lines in varied colors. It does still recognize input from the PC, but it only shows up as changes in the colors of the lines. When this happens, the only way to fix it is to turn it off and wait for awhile before turning it back on. It does it whether or not it is connected to a computer. I'm guessing that something is overheating, but I know nothing about monitors and don't know where to start. HP support just told me to get a new one, but that's not very feasible right now. I haven't been able to find this issue anywhere, so I'm hoping someone here can help.\015

\015\012It does sound like there is something wrong internally if the monitor shows the vertical lines even if it's not connect to the pc. Unfortunately, they usually cost more to fix than to buy a new one.

\015\012One thing you can try is resetting it to factory default. There should be a button on the front, side, or top that allows you to access a menu for the monitor. One of the options should be Restore to Factory Default or something like that. Once you restore it to factory default and you still experience the problem, there really isn't too much you can do.

\015\012You might also try and put a small desktop fan pointed at the air flow holes to see if that might help.

\015\012I wish there was something else I could suggest but in my experience, over 10 years working with computer monitors/hardware, the monitor sounds like it's seen it's last days.

\015\012There are some companies out there, and even on www.craigslist.com, that sell cheap crt monitors for the time being until you can replace it.

\015\012Best of luck to you and again I wish I could give you a fix for it.
