If geeks love it, we’re on it
You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
radio said:So nobody actually knows if the entire range manufactured from 1999 to 2002? have this problem, Im going to buy a post 2000 model but not if its gonna have this fault.
vjsm said:My Dell P1110 has EPROM date 9-2001, and it has the opposite problem (too dark)! Apparently I'm the only poster in this thread who is in this category.
Xweebie said:If your screen is too dark, then maybe your G2 is too low. Do you have a way to measure it (100-600v)? Be aware input impedence of meter would affect the reading. How about your filament voltage? ...
Ackriss said:Xweebie, are you going to post the schematics for the cable?
Rustedmetal said:....it seems the only resistor that i can find locally is a 10m ohm 1/4w from radio shack. is that ok for the fix?
rickst29 said:They show 2 watt, 500V, 2% tolerance resistors on the following page:http://www.action-electronics.com/resist2w.htmOnly $1 per resistor, and USPS shipping for $3.90. They don't guarantee to have them all in stock, but the price can't be beat... and the 500V, 2W ratings beat the other resistors which I see in this thread.Sizes shown for the 'replacement approach' include 4.7M, 5.1, 5.6, 6.2, and 6.8M.I just put in an order for the 'put another in parallel on the top side' approach. My monitor is quite washed out, so I'm going with the 16M resistor (for a net resistance of slightly less than 6.2). I'll let you all know if/when it shows up, or if I have to switch to a different (in-stock) size.Sincerely, Rick
