Monitor Looks Hazy

By ramsdesk ·
I have a reasonably good Monitor (SOTEC) which has been working fine, past one year. Recently, the startup screen (COMPAQ) is pale pink in color followed by all texts looking hazy.

I am able to view pictures and images correctly but texts (in normal size) look hazy. I tried checking all cables and reinstalling monitor drivers but no help.

Any pointers pls...

Note: This is certainly not my eye problem :-))

Monitor Looks Hazy

Several possibilities.

A quick way to verify if it is a monitor, or video problem is to swap monitors, and see if the image is better.

Assuming it is the monitor, here are some possible causes:

Focus adjustment has shifted.

1 or more CRTelectron guns have low output.

The 'degaussing' circuit has failed.

There is a strong magnetic field nearby.

If a different monitor looks about the same, I would try re-installing the driver for the video card.

If that does not improve things, the card itself may be bad.

All said, I suspect an internal problem with the monitor itself.

Figure on $100 or more for repairs.

My local Sam's Club sells a 17" flat screen CRT monitor for $130.

open up your monitor and you should be able to find 2 adjustable switch , it should be (1)blur , and (2) contrast .

Try adjusting either one of them .
