New Monitor Oddness...

Splurged and got a good model, and I think I'm over-concerned...

Last night, I got a nice Samsung 19" Flat Screen monitor... And it's awesome.

Trouble is, after about 30 minutes or so, it seems like the monitor's image becomes a bit fuzzy. i tried degaussing, to no avail. theres no speakers or similar items around it that would distort the clarity or picture...

any ideas, or is this just my eyes playin tricks on me?

with a monitor of this size, running 1280 x 1024 -- what refresh rate would be best?

oh yeah, running WinME, with a NVidea 64MB AGP card.

any thoughts would be great.

I have a 19 Samsun 955DF Flat Screen CRT - I run it at 1280x1024 and 75Hz refresh and it's great that way. I did have some problems in my old office tho - turns out the main power came into the building and ran down the wall behind my computer - couldn't ever get the monitor above a 60Hz refresh.

If the effect you are seeing appears only after 30 minutes, then it is most probably a fault internal to the monitor. After getting up and walking away for a few minutes to make sure it is not an eyestrain issue, I'd suggest looking for the warranty card.

Magnetic effects such as those relieved by degaussing, or those cause by strong local electromagnetic fields, are most likely to be non-time-dependent. One way to easily rule out a local magnetic field is to turn the monitor 90 degrees left or right, and look for changes in the effect. If none are noted, the problem is internal.

"19 Samsung 955DF Flat Screen CRT"

-- SAME exact model.

I'll look into the warranty information tonight, and see what else I may be able to do with this.

Oilman, any ideas on how to adjust the actual sharpness of the picture? It's got the Moire and Focus areas, but neither of those have dependably worked out well.

Many thanks.

I'd have to agree with jdmorgan if it's a time thing. Something might not be stable on the inside.

Aside from moire I don't think there's any kind of sharpness function on this thing.

If it's brand new you should just be able to walk back in to where you bought it and just get a straight swap.
