Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
The image is blurred:
Read the chapter, Installation/Adjustment and then select the correct resolution, refresh rate
and make adjustments based on these instructions.
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 working on the description in the chapter, Installation/Adjustment. 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 a built-in booster.
Does the blurring only occur at resolutions lower than the native (maximum) resolution?
Read the chapter Installation/Adjustment. Select the native resolution.

One of several pixels are permanently black, one or more pixels are permanently white, one
