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.

You can try a couple of things. Try changing the refresh rate of the monitor and see if that helps. Also, check any devices that may be plugged into the same outlet as the wire, such as lights or fans. I have seen monitors go berzerk when this isthe case. I hope this helps. Good Luck.

rage,

Nobody else has mentioned this, so I will. Try right-clicking the desktop and select "Properties". Then go to the "Settings" tab and click the "Advanced" button at the bottom of the page. Next click the "Adapter" tab and find the adapter's refresh rate text box, toward the bottom of that page. This should say "Optimal". If it does not, click within the white portion of that box to drop down a list of available options, and select "Optimal". Also, while on that Adapter page, checkand make sure the installed adapter driver listed matches your actual hardware. If it does not, click on the "Change..." button to install the correct one. If you do make changes to any of these settings, you'll be prompted to restart afterward. Do so. If you changed your driver, you'll need to run back thru this procedure to ensure depth, resolution and refresh rates are correct/as desired, then restart again.

It is easy to forget that incorrect adapter settings can both make a great monitor look crappy, an

hi,

I too use a 17" FLATRON (L.G) color monitor and often get the same distortion. this problem can be fixed in three ways one increasing the refresh rate >75Hz. another way is to get the latest driver and windows will automatically fix it.third remove all magnetic stuff from the vicinity of the monitor.
I hope this would help u
Good Luck!
mail me if u find time
