Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

The image is blurred:

Read the instructions on the link "Adjusting the Screen Resolution" on the CD, and then select the correct resolution, refresh rate and make adjustments based on these instructions.

How do you use a VGA extension cable?

Remove the extension cable for the test. Is the image now in focus? If not, optimize the image by working through the instructions in the "Adjusting the refresh rate" section on the link "Adjusting the Screen Resolution". It is normal for blurring to occur due to conduction losses in extension cables. You can minimize these losses by using an extension cable with better conduction quality or with abuilt-inbooster.

Does the blurring only occur at resolutions lower than the native (maximum) resolution?

Read the instructions on the link "Adjusting the Screen Resolution" on the CD. Select the native resolution.

Pixel errors can be seen:

One of several pixels is permanently black, one or more pixels are permanently white, one or more pixels are permanently red, green, blue or another color.

Clean the LCD screen.

It has a yellow, blue or pink appearance.
