Monitor difficulties :-)

By jkeltg1 ·
I have a Shinho AV2-765F monitor that's having some trouble. Unfortunately the company is out of business (making support a definite trouble), so thus I can't find anyone who'll repair this particular model. In hopes of a possible "save" I'm asking my peers for their assistance in this matter.

Anyway.. this monitor has great color, but seems to make the same effect on occassion like the resolution is set too high (everything is squashed in the middle of the screen). I'm well within the maximum and minimum resolutions for the display (800X600), but the problem still occurs.

Is the monitor unfixable, or is there a solution for this problem that I haven't yet discovered? ANY help would be greatly appreciated, and it's not a resolution problem!

Thank you in advance,
James Keltgen

You may try adjusting the display resolution,it may be set to high to see if this helps.
The other option would be to locate a shop that works on monitors,it may not be shot ,but you can access whether to fix or buy another monitor after getting a professional estimate

If the question was read entirely, I've already used different monitor refresh rates. Sorry, but this didn't help any.

Have you tried various monitor refresh rates in display properties? Also, is the monitor properly identified in device manager? It could be a matter of corrupted drivers also. You might check www.windrivers.com for latest available drivers for both video adapter and monitor. I hope this helps.

The driver is fully installed and matches exactly the monitor ID and product type.

Answer 2 is on the right track. It appears that the wrong refresh rate is set for the monitor, which would force you to manually adjust the screen after each resolution change. You can test this by switching from 640x480 to 800x600 to 1024x758 and others if available. If one "clicks" in, and appears correct, then it is the refresh rate.

Try different settings, starting with default, then "custom", without changing any of the settings.

You can also "over-ride" any firmware settings embedded in the monitor by turning it off, and then while holding down the menu button, turning the monitor on. This will do a "re-set" of any monitor settings, and return it to factory default.

Last but not least, have you tried using the monitors menu settings to set the horizontal and vertical size settings to center and size the picture on the screen?

The monitor has been "calibrated" without any problems. It still doesn't produce the picture correctly.

Try two and three, but if you've got your monitor manual handy, it may tell you what the refresh rates are supposed to be set at. Couldn't hurt to surf for drivers. Finally, see if there's a "recall" or similar setting on your monitor. Maybe the horizontal/vertical or the colors are out of whack?

I do have the manual handy, and I'm set well within the maximum and minimum resolution limits (read question above).

Had a similar problem with several monitors at an elementary school. Turned out to be bad power surge strips.

I've tried many different power strips. Even went as far as to replace the IEEE power cable, but still doesn't work.

I did however find out that it works completely error free, when it's attached to an AGP card, rather than a PCI based adapter????
