Re: monitor color

Mostly is because the video card is defective, try to replace with another video card, and see whether the new one works fine.

I lost the receipt of purchase of my LG L177WSB monitor..Now i have a problem with the is not displaying colours porperly...Can I know the warranty of my LG monitor by means of serial number?

Assuming your complete model number is L177WSB-PF then this may be under warranty. On the sticker on the back side there should be a date that is the month and year it was manufactured. If this date is less than 3 years then you are still under warranty.
Before making a warranty claim on the LG website I would recommend verifying that your video cable is securely connected to both the monitor and the computer. If the cable is connected securely and the colors are still off try another video cable to see if the problem is that.
If the cable is changed and the colors are still off then you should check the settings in the monitor to see if you can adjust the colors to correct them. If you still cannot then visit, mouse over support, and click Warranty Service.
You will be able to request a warranty replacement there.

I made adjustments to my monitor to change the brightness but now all my monitor has a pink tinge to it and all my photos in photoshop are pink. How can I set the monitor back to the factory settings

sound like a loose connection, check all your cables and make sure they are securely attached to your computer and also the back of your monitor, if problem persist try going to the degauss menu and degauss the monitor, check to see if your color settings are properly configured, also check the color temperature. If none of these suggestions worked your monitor may have a more server problem, hope this helps, best of luck

Crt monitor gradually develops a yellow tinge after being turned on for a few minutes. It fluctuates annoyingly. It is about 4 years old. It is a Samsung SyncMaster 753DFX Crt monitor.

CRT monitors have three color "guns" in them - Red, Blue, & Green. If one of them is starting to go south you will have a tinge as you describe. To make sure it's the monitor, try connecting a different monitor. If the monitor is the problem, it's not worth fixing. Replace it.
If, after changing the monitor you still have a color tinge, you have a problem with your video device in your PC and you need to have it checked out by a PC Technician.

Most LCD manufacturers consider up to six dead pixes (off showing black) or hot pixels (stuck on one color, red, green or blue) acceptible.

If your LCD is still under warranty, contact LG and they will determine if you meet the replacement criteria.

Red color missing in LCD monitor

if under warranty contact the manufacturer for repairs. otherwise you'd be in the market for a new monitor.

Also check your graphics card. Might be causing the problem rather than your monitor.

Cmv monitor bad color

The problem is your monitor, not driver or settings or video adapter cards. You have basically two options get another CRT or LCD display, or if it is still under warranty call the company get a "Return Authorization Number" and ship it back to the manufacturer. I did that with a NEC MUltisync 19" years ago, it turned red, there was little ability to actually change the red image at all. cI Shipped it back to NEC and it has worked ever since. Good luck with your monitor.

Havent you got a person or a friend that has a puter to test the monitor??? This would be the best way as it could be the crt on the monitor or the crt driver board but before we go there we should make sure where the problem lies. Good Luck
