Hello, everyone,

I just got a used Westinghouse monitor to use as my dual screen. Although the picture is beautiful, it is only covering half of the screen. The top half looks like a regular computer screen and the bottom half is black. Does anyone know how to fix this issue?

Thank you in advance

Hi Tatijay76, and welcome to TSG.

Does the monitor have any buttons to display on-screen setup menus? If so, are the menus also cut off on the bottom half of the screen?

If everything is being cut off and the monitor is an LCD type, the LCD panel in the monitor is most likely broken. You may find it less expensive to replace the entire monitor than it is to get the LCD panel replaced.

HI cwwozniak,

Thank you for letting me know that. I bought it at a thrift store, so I should have expected some issues. I guess I will be buying a new monitor.

Thanks again.

You're welcome.

I've learned not to purchase electronics and electrical items at thrift stores unless I can at least plug them in and turn them on.
