'[OT]: Monitor repairs ?'

I have a 19" LG 995SU monitor in front of me here and it has just started to
go fuzzy in spots. And these spots move around!
It is out of warranty at this stage, the retailer just wants to replace it -
i.e. buy a new one, and there are no repair services for this unit within
easy reach. (I'd have to export to the UK for service!)
I did a websearch but came up with little info re this unit.

Does anyone know of a site with fault/repair info for monitors. Any pointers
at all would be appreciated.

It sounds like the shadow mask inside the tube is warping.  The real fix
is to replace the tube.  However if you turn down the brightness you may
reduce the power and mask heating so the warping is no longer a problem.
At least it is an easy thing to try.

Chickenpox <g> or HV leakage around the focus lead/potentiometer imho.
Just moving the focus pot a few times may fix it temporarily.

Try the archives of sci.electronic.repair on Google imho

Hi Andre and others, I also have a problem with a
Panasonic Panasync S17.
I've changed the flyback transformer and now I can
not get the width and pincushion adjust right.
Someone told me I would need a special software
from Panasonic to adjust it, I've been in contact
with Panasonic but they were of no help.
where can I get this software?

Friendly Regards

Hi John,

I can't help with your monitor problem, but I just realized now after
seeing this message several times that you used the Irish word "Slan" (for
"goodbye" or I think more literally derived from the word for health).
Where are you located?

Octavio,

The only software I can think of is the driver
Which most likely you do not even need it because
Inside of your monitor there is a EEPROM contains
Driver information when you plug it in your windows will
Detect and install it for you. Have you Played with
buttons on front panel ? I repaired lots of monitors
before you shouldn't have problem like this unless
some one played with it.

I used to work on Apple monitors a lot, mostly OEMed by Panasonic and Sony.
There was special elaborate software that communicated with the monitor and
was used to adjust the bright, sub-bright, geometry, etc. If you replaced
the main controller board in some of those monitors, you had to make sure
that you downloaded and backed up the monitor's configuration so that you
could re-upload it onto the new board and get the settings for the
individual tube, yoke, and flyback right - otherwise it was very very
difficult to adjust without signal generators and other special tools.

It wouldn't suprise me if there was special software.

Thank you for your answer Andre.
I've tried with the buttons but I can not get
to adjust it right. I talked to Panasonic people
and they said they have a software to make some internal
calibrations.
They said to call their facilities at Porto Rico and try
to talk to someone, but as you can see it's a little
vague.
Or maybe there are a special "service mode" accessed
by a secret combination of buttons...
