I have a Viewsonic P815 CRT Monitor. One day, all of a sudden, the screen squeezed itself into a bar about a quarter of an inch thick down the center. I can tell that the picture is there, it is just scrunched. I tried everything tech support told me to do. I pushed the sequence of buttons to expand the disply, still nothing. I came across a webpage a while back that said something about replacing a transistor to fix the problem, but I can't find it again. Can someone please help me?

Oh yeah, I was plugging something into the USB port on the base of the monitor when the picture shrunk, if that helps.

Thanks

Howdy and welcome to G2G:

You need to do a quick easy troubleshoot here.. Either try a different monitor on your system.. if it works, the problem is in your monitor (sounds like the vertical went on it).. or, try your monitor on another system..

Other monitors work fine on my system. I haven't tried hooking the P815 to another machine though. is there a way to fix the vertical?

Not for the ordinary user.. Means opening up the monitor and replacing/repairing .. Cost for the repair can be close to a new monitor..
