Okay, so I got it, man this thing is a beast
I have to perform the "image restoration" thing though, but it says "available after warmup".
How long should the "warmup" take? The guy I bought it from said it has basically been collecting dust for years
why would anyone not want to use a fw900??
edit #1: Okay, I went ahead and ate dinner, and when I came back image restoration was available, now the brightness/contrast looks great.
Only one more problem - I'm getting a "ghost image" effect, where I will for instance see faded letters offset from the actual text. It's not noticeable from far away but it's there. How do I fix this? It only happens with VGA, but I can't use BNC because either my cable is bad, or the connector on the monitor is bad (no red)Also, what should I use to clean the screen?
I don't think there are any scratches but it is kind of filthy.
edit #2: I've determined that the BNC problem lies with the cable, and not the monitor. I'll just order a new cable and fix the above problem as well. Another thing concerns me though - it looks like that at one point in its lifetime someone actually spilled a soft drink
into the back of the monitor. It's totally dried out now, but it still kind of worries me. Should I get it professionally cleaned before using it heavily?
