Distorted display on 17" monitor

By Rage ·
I picked up a Compudyne 17" multi-scan color monitor from a friend, and when I tested it, I found that the monitor works fine, except that there's what looks like a ripple in the display, and it fades off to the right. I have already ruled out the computer. The problem lies somewhere inside the monitor. I'm still looking for schematics and any other information that might help. The monitor is model number: KD-1700G KDS

Also: my apologies, I closed the thread prematurely.

This could be the way the rays are shot from the tube to the screen and it is problby in the way the monitor displays on the screen,I am using a mitsubishi I get a line across the screen.technolgy has not been perfected and it is to technical to explain. check the PC WORLD WEB SITE and check to see if they did a bench test on this model and read the pros and cons of what they have to say about 17 inch monitors.

Hi, maybe this will help you locate your skematics for the monitor. Compudyne products are packaged by CompUSA. You should be able to locate the model number on the back of the monitor and go to a local CompUSA and have them look it up and/or check their website, www.compusa.com.

Your monitor is made by Korea Data Systems (hence the KDS in the model number). Go to www.kdsusa.com for tech support.

I suppose this has already been tried, but I was always told not to assume. Make sure that there are no flourescent lights or motors of any kind (possibly a clock or fan, etc). The electrical noise from these devices have been known to cause many a monitor to distort.
Good Luck!

Distorted display on 17" monitor

by ciberdann In reply to Distorted display on 17" ...

what you may have is a 60Mhz hum bar.
this is caused by having an electrical wire to close to the monitor cable. this happens with older monitors, Or poorly insulated wire. Try to take all electrical wire away from the monitor cable at least 1 foot. if that does not work change your monitors refresh rate off of 60Mhz this will stop the hum bar.
