  • What's wrong with my screen and how can i fix it?

    OK, guys...
    I have this 7" screen. I wire it to a DVD player and the top 5 or so pixels are all "warped" The image at the very top seems to "bend" to the left. just like somebody grabbed the top line and pulled it left 3 or 4 pixels, forming an arc back to the normal.

    Any ideas?

    hook it to another video source and see if it still has the same effect. This will tell you if you have bad monitor or bad video output on DVD player or bad RCAs

      if i inplug the video inputs, the screen has a white-ish fade on the top, where the problem has occured. However, there is also a small "fading" on the bottom as well.

          This may sound odd, but do you have a magnet nearby? I don't even know if it would affect an LCD display....just a thought.

            It is not any kind of interference. I think the problem is within the screen.

              where is the power source coming from?
              car or ac inside?

                AC inside... running from a 12v line off of a 200w PSU

                    Could you take a pic? I have a hard time imagining what warped LCD pixels look like. Warped CRT pixels, however I can easily picture.

                      it's just like a dark "bar" at the top 5 pixels. It is stronger at the 3rd down than the 1st and the 5th.

                        AMPs

                        you may be over amping it or under amping it...

                        can you try hooking back up with the regular AC adapter?

                            The first time i got my LCD, i wired it into my computer for the power source because i didn't have an AC adapter. Well, i accidently wired it to the 5V+ and the monitor was all jacked up.. like it looked it was the wrong frequency. I caught the error and put it to the other wire and it worked fine. It's most likely ure power input
