Hi, I have just had my monitor replaced under warrenty, however, the new monitor has a strnage ghosting effect leaving what looks like trails on black elements fading towards the right. Like all the black elements are overlayed fainter about 2mm appart and fading, dissapearing after about 4 or 5 repeats. Only happens on white backgrounds, but as I use CAD this is a problem. Any idea what could cause the problem? Is it a setting or should I just send the monitor back? Any advice would be helpful. Thanks, Matt Frost __________ This is a link a website explaining my presonal beliefs. click here
I really don't want to do that (though I will if need be), this is the second unit they sent me, the first one I refused to take delivery of outright and sent back with the courier because the case was cracked. It's taken weeks to get this far, and with important work deadlines in the next few weeks, I can't afford to waste too much time with equipment unplugged waiting for a courier.
This may help If it is a TFT, Did you use a CRT before you got the new monitor as I am just thinking it may be the Graphics card that as a fault. Can you try the Monitor on another Computer to check it
Woodchip Ok, I should have said, it's actually a CRT, a iiyama Vision Master Pro 513 to be precise. The problem isn't a blur like on a TFT when it just doesn't refresh enough or whatever, even when everythings static, it's still there.
Hertz Van Rentyl Don't worry, it's definitly not that, it appears on every dark line, not just the cursor, that was just the best way I could think of describing it! It doesn't actually follow the cursor like the cursor trail, but more like a shadow. Or a series of shadows. Thanks for the tip anyway!
Could it be that I'm running too high a resolution (1600 by 1200 (although 1920 by 1440 is max)), too low a refresh rate (60 hertz). Also, my old monitor had an attached cable, this one didn't so I bought a vga cable today, could it be too low quality (although it is a Vivanco)? I'll try plugging a different computer into it tomorrow to see what happens and get back to you. Night guys, thanks for your help so far.
