Question about SAMTRON 78DF 17" CRT Monitor

2 Answers

Yellow Monitor My monitor cable is broken right where it connects to my pc, you can see the shilding inside the cable. I use to be able to move it around just a bit and it would go back to normal. Today i tried to use it and i cant get it to go back to normal, it just stays a tint of yellow. The cable is not a removeable cable. Can i just purchase a new vga connector for it and solder them together? If so, where can i get the vga connector and is there a specific one i need? Thanks!

Simply buy a monitor extenstion cable and cut the end that you dont need and measure the end plug to match the wires on the cut end and simply splice the other cable into place NO BIGGY!! Done it several times. Good luck

Its not something that anyone can do. you'll need to get a new cable and open the monitor to connect it on the inside. to get the vga connector cable you'll need to make the trip to a repair lab anyway, cause its not the generic kind with pins on both sides that you can get in any general computer store. Hope you work it out, and don't get yourself zapped please ;]

    best I can suggest is to find a local lab and buy one off them.
    maybe they have one around for you, and they might even give you some tips on the work.

Yellow screen


There are a variety of problems that can happen to the display monitor of an Acer laptop.
The most common problem is the screen fading or becoming too hard to see.
This can be corrected by adjusting the brightness levels.
Another common problem involves incorrect color, which can be resolved by adjusting the display color settings.
Yet another big problem is the display freezing or appearing jumpy, which can be resolved by updating the display driver.

Hold down the "Fn" key.
Tap the right-arrow key to brighten the display screen.

Tap the left-arrow key to darken the display screen.
Release the "Fn" key to save your display settings.
Color
Right-click on the desktop and click "Graphic Properties."
Adjust the screen resolution by clicking "Display Settings" and choosing a resolution setting from the drop-down menu.
Click "Apply" to check the resolution of the display.
Click "OK" to save the resolution settings.

Adjust the color of the screen by clicking "Color Correction" and moving the brightness or contrast slider to the right or left.
Click "Apply" to check the color resolution of the display.
Click "OK" to save the color settings.

Click "OK" to exit the Graphic Properties application.
Update the Display Driver
Right-click on the desktop. Click "Personalize," "Display Settings" and "Advanced Settings."
Click the "Intel Graphics" tab and choose "Monitor Properties."
Click "Driver."

Click "Update Driver" and choose "Search Automatically."
Click "Install" to install the updated monitor driver. After the driver has been installed, click "OK" to restart the laptop when prompted.
Yellow screen
Yellow tinting in monitors can be caused by either a software calibration issue, bad cables or a worn out display and backlight.
Before you assume that the issue is a hardware one, determine if there are software settings that affect the color or if the cables are working correctly.
After checking these items, and if the yellow tint only occurs on one monitor and you cannot eliminate it, the problem is a display hardware issue and it is less expensive to replace the monitor.

Unplug the power cord from the monitor and replace it with another one.
This is a standard power cord used in printers, monitors and desktop PCs so you can trade it for a cable from another device.
Turn on the PC and monitor to see if the yellow is still there.
Turn off the computer and monitor.
Replace the video cable with another VGA cable from another monitor.
Use one from another computer before going out to buy one.
Restart the computer to see if the yellow tint is gone.
Right click any area on the desktop and click "Properties" from the list of options that appears.
Choose "Display Settings," then "Advanced Settings."
Select "Monitor" and click the "Calibrate Color" button.
Wait to see if the yellow tint goes away.
Locate the temperature color settings on the monitor.
Adjust these to see if there is a change in the color.
A warm color setting will give the screen images more of a yellowish tint.
Click on the "Start" icon, then click "Control Panel" and "System and Security" and choose "Device Driver."
Locate the video driver and click "Update."
Select the option allowing Windows to connect to the Internet to find an updated driver.
Wait for the update to complete in a few minutes.
Expect the yellowing issue to disappear.
Connect the PC to another monitor to see if the same problem occurs.
If the yellow tint does not appear on the newly connected monitor, the problem is a bad backlight or display and the monitor should be replaced with a new one.

LG Flatron W2254TQ My monitor is vertically divided in half with a grayish cast color on the right side, and a bluish cast color on the left side - I can still see everything, but it sure is...


Get a replacement vga lead for it as i am guessing that it has become faulty, try bending the cable where it connects to the pc and monitor and see if you notice a change if it goes back to normal your cable is not attached correctly or it has broken connections inside.


Please leave feedback for me if this helped

I have lost the Red hue in my screen. Any help?


Check the video cable connectors and sockets on your PC and monitor for bent or broken pins. If the cable suffered mechanical stress, a wire inside may got broken or pried lose from the connector internally.
Change the cable for a different one. Connect the Monitor to a different PC or try a different Monitor on your PC to home in on the cause.
If the problem persists and is attributed to the monitor, a fan of the monitor connector soldered to the internal PCB may be lose or broken. This sometimes happens if the connector was pushed in using excess force before.
While a repair shop can fix this easily, I recommend not to try the repair yourself.

Monitor changed to yellow colour.... what is the problem...?


Monitors mix the 3 "primary" colours, in various proportions, to produce all other colours.

Mix equal parts of all 3 colours, and you get WHITE.
Mix equal parts of only 2 colours, and you get YELLOW.

So, either:
1. your computer's video-card is not sending the 3rd colour;
2. your video-cable between the computer and the monitor is broken, and is not transmitting the 3rd colour;
3. your video-cable is not TIGHTLY connected at each end;
4. the electronics inside the monitor that SHOULD be producing the 3rd colour have failed.

Try connecting the monitor to a different computer, with the same video-cable. If it works correctly, your video-card is the problem.

Try connecting the monitor with a different video-cable, to see if replacing the cable fixes the problem.

Try connecting the monitor to a different computer, with a different video-cable. If it still is incorrect, then the monitor needs repair/replacement.

About 2 inch yellow stripe appears on the LCD screen


This typically is a sign of either a problem with the monitor itself, the cable, or the computer.

Fault isolation is key here. If you have access to another monitor, I would suggest connecting that to the computer, or vice versa. That way you can figure out what's broken.

If it's the computer, you might be able to purchase a replacement video card. If it's the monitor - you're out of luck, and likely need to purchase a new one.

My monitor turns yellow


Computer monitors get separate red, green and blue video signals from the computer, and if you lose the blue the result is a yellow picture. This can be caused by video card failure in the computer (very unlikely), a bad cable (fairly common), or trouble in the monitor (which is most likely what you have).

The usual problem with monitors is bad solder connections to the red, green and blue output devices. These are usually three separate transistors, but sometimes an integrated circuit that puts all three in one package is used. These outputs get pretty hot, and the heat can cause the connections on the circuit board to crack. Resoldering them usually fixes the trouble. (Sometimes the part actually fails, but bad connections are more common.)

The parts are normally in one of two places. Most commonly they are on the small circuit board you'll find right at the neck of the picture tube. Some monitors have them on the main circuit board. They may be mounted to metal heat sinks to help keep them cool. If you can identify them and resolder the connections, you'll probably get your normal picture back.

Check the video cable at both ends to make sure it is connected properly.
Move the cable around near the ends and chances are it will look normal. If so then you have a broken wire inside the video cable. A common thing and easy to get another cable.
