    Hi,

    A little while ago my 9 year old ran in my office and said, "Papa',
    my screen is all fuzzy!!" Sure enough it is out of focus. I have degaussed and run all the traps that I know including installing an Acer monitor that I had lying around. It's in focus.

    Anyone have any ideas on how to get the CTX clear and sharpe again??

    Thank you.

    The last monitor that I seen turn fuzzy for no apparent reason needed to see the repair shop. Unless you are trained to repair monitors, I wouldn't attempt to do it yourself.

    Try adjusting the refresh rate in the Display settings.

    Hi Ruby,

    I've tried that, too.

    Thanks though.

    it is usually cheaper to buy a new monitor then to try to have one fixed

    Hi stangg2,

    I agree with you. I got my monies worth out of this one as I paid $50 for it over 4 years ago. Just thought it might be something simple to get it back in focus.

    regards,
