You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
Madrok said:Hello again.I was wondering if there was other variables that i could change to increase my contrast level on my sony fw900 monitor? I increased my DRIVE_MAX as much as it could, which made a big difference, but need more contrast.I also increased the ABL_CONT_LIMIT, but it had no effect on the contrast, or anything else i could see.If you could please help me out i would be very greatful. If not, please let me know either way asap so i can return the computer i'm using with the com port to do windas.Thanks much,RIchard
Ross said:This means there is a problem in the voltage regulation circuit. This could be a few things, crt leakage, number of other components in the volt reg curcuit.I had a few P1110's and one of mine did this but only when the contrast and brightness were set high. I got around the problem by lowering the output of the 3 electron guns(RGB red/green/blue)in the osd. This can be done under the custom color setting. 1.Note the current values and write these down. 2 Lower all values by about 50.3.Run the test and see if this decreases the amount that the white expands.4.If the white is staying roughly the same size increase all the values by 10.5.If the white is still stable gradully increase in steps of 10 untill the white starts its old tricks again.I am hoping these are 2 separate probs and that the fuzziness may be sorted after focus adjustment. The voltage regulation solution above is just a workaround and may not work in most cases. You may need to replace componants which then starts costing money!!!Anyway see how you get on.All the best mate, now i am going to sleep because it is 3.00 :type: in the morning over here(England) and i need to get up for work in four hours!R:thumbsup: SS
IHOD2006 said:OK! I did that and the screen didnt even jitter, as i moved them up though it did. Is this related to the G2 voltage problem? If so i will solder in a new resistor asap. You mentioned two probes for the fuzzyness, are there two seperate flyback transformers for top and bottom or something of that nature?Thanks,_Dan
Ross said:(write down all your colour settings in the osd) Make a backup of your current settings in windas then go to easy settings and use colour restore function.This should reset the color to how the white balence was calibrated in the factory. But as your monitor gets older it may need to be adjusted slightly.EDIT: Just had a thought, If i can remmember what you said before your convergence was acting in the same way as the fuziness. Perhaps the deflection yoke needs adjusting. I wouldnt do this yourself i would ask a repair shop to quote you for adjustment.
IHOD2006 said:I have the service manual, is the yoke one of those plastic tabs that look like they can be moved side to side at the back end of the tube?
Ross said:nope,these 3 sets of rings are for convergence and the 4th set are for purity adjustment. Dont mess with these.The yoke is on the neck of the tube towards the front.
IHOD2006 said:Is it one of those things, i can never ever get it back to normal if i do or?
Ross said:They are set at the factory and are rough convergence settings which are then tuned up in windas. They will have some type of sealant or glue that keeps them in place. Adjusting these will not improve the fuziness.R:bigggrin: SS
