Having problems with your Apple Multiple Scan 1705 Monitor ?

Screen image display distortion

\015 All of a sudden today, as I turned back to look at my monitor screen, the image had shrunk from both sides towards the middle, and there was a black space (non-image) on both sides, and the image space itself had its outside edges curving inwards towards the opposite side, sort of like a thick hour glass. The image was still plainly visible, as its area was still about 70% of the screen, but it was distorted by the curved side edges. The bottom edges are straight. I tried the image moving controls inside the little flip down panel in front, and that accomplished small movements, but did not reestablish the whole screen image or effect the distortion much. Can someone offer advice especially if they think the problem is fixable by a repair person w/o spending more than what a replacement LCD monitor would cost me.\015

Answers :

Hello.
\015\012What you are reporting is a problem in the pincushion circuit in the horizontal section of your CRT monitor. Usually this is from an electrolytic capacitor that is no longer willing to play nice with all the other components.
\015\012It is repairable, but get an estimate first. If the repair bill appears to be around $100, you would be better off to put a few more dollars with that and buy an LCD TFT monitor.
\015\012If you are quoted $25 or $30, it is probably worth having repaired. Just keep in mind that these older CRT monitors have age on their components, and once repaired, it will still be an old monitor.
\015\012Only you can decide which choice is right for you. At least now you have a few facts to help make the decision.
\015\012I hope this helps.
