Display with a red tone

When I turn the monitor on (plugged or not to the computer) i get something like a red colored tone instead of the regular background black color. I think it's an electrical problem but I would like to confirm first. Appreciate any kind of answer. Regards

    Well, i've shutdown the monitor for at least half a day, and now it's working normally again. But yesterday it was very strange, because sometimes when i turned the monitor on the orange light on the button became flashing (meaning a self diagnose i think) and i needed to turn it off otherwise it would have stayed flashing for life, turning it on again and things were like they were, the red colored tone instead of the black background. But now it's been a few hours using it, and for now it's working properly, hope it doesn't happen again. Anyway thanks for the answer.

    Regards

    Well, at that time, the problem occured again during 3 ou 4 days, but eventually, after shuting down the Monitor for the night, in the next day it turned to be okay again. It's been a while since it happened for the last time, so right now i guess i will wait to see what happens. If it becomes happening again than i'll maybe changing the screen. But thanks anyway.

    Forgot to mention, the red colored tone stayed on, it didn't fade way.

    Well, it's been a long time since i've used the monitor for a good couple of hours, and now i've noticed that the problem continues, sometimes, after the red tone appears, it goes back to it's normal state after some seconds but other times not.
    I think it's better do someting about it...
    Fran, how much those screens you say cost? And how can I replace them?

    Regards

    Usually red or pink colors are caused by bad or failing bulbs in the monitor screen.

    Does the red stay on and then gradually go away or does the monitor shut down after it is started.

    If a computer is hooked up does your power button light stay on bright or go dim or turn to yellow-orange ?

If the redness fades away after it warms up, then it is the bulbs.
Eventually they won't even start up and you may cause damage to your inverter board.
Most screens use 4 bulbs, 2 on top and 2 on the bottom edge.
They can be changed , but it is a bit of work, plus he bulbs average 15 dollars each to buy, so sometimes finding a replacement screen that is good is easier to do.
I have some screens, but I would need to know your model number of the monitor and of the screen.

    You would need to take it apart and get the numbers from the back of the actual lcd screen to find out if it can be found or a compatible one may be available.

Screen keeps flashing green-blue-red


The manual for the monitor can be found here (
Mitsubishi DiamondPoint V50LCD User Manual ) The specific Red Green Blue cycle isn't noted.
:
  1. I'd start with toggling on the on screen set-up display. if that comes up and is legible, then you know that the screen is working.
  2. What is your video set up to push to the V50? If it's not a supported resolution, the display may respond this way. try downgrading it something like VGA (640x480) and see if that works. (The max resolution shown in the manual is 1024 x 768, so don't go higher than that. It's also 24 bit color (8 bits each for R,G,B, so don't try to push 32 bit color to it)>
  3. Set the output to your primary monitor to 1024 x 768, thousands of colors. Make sure the monitor sees it OK. Now you know the first monitor and cable are OK. Now switch the cable to the V50 monitor. Do you get a signal now? Then the display works. Try putting your primary display on the second cable. Does it pick up anything now? No. Maybe a bad cable.
  4. You can try swapping the cable going to the V50 to go from your primary monitor output port on the computer to your primary monitor. if the primary monitor works OK, then the cable is good.
  5. Depending on the computer system you're on, make sure that you at least have a generic monitor driver installed for the V50 output. Ideally, get the driver for the monitor You can get the driver here (
Mitsubishi Monitor drivers ) amongst other places.

Good luck!

Hi we have a compaq 7550 screen that when turned on has a red sheen over the whole screen. Any solutions or is it ready to throw away. thanks


You may try messing with the settings on the monitor. The menu buttons are usually on the front. Try to find something that deals with the color tones of the monitor. If messing with these settings doesn't fix your problem, then unfortunately, it is probably time to throw it out.

Colour blending problems.


Try updating your video card drivers as well as your monitor drivers and see if all the resolutions work at that point. If they work then everything is good to go, if it doesn't work then try another working monitor and if you still have the color blending problems then the video card is faulty.

Check that the signal cable from the computer is firmly connected and that there are no bent pins in either end. If the trouble continues, the problem is in the monitor itself. Given the low replacement cost, it's uneconomical to try repairing these.

Color goes off


If your color is messed up on your display also then I think you need a new monitor. Why don't you try using a monitor that you know works and see if you have the same problem. Then let us know the results or the answer so we can have a little more to work with.

Monitor color display problem


Go to the control panel. Click on display. The display applet is your next stop. The display applet is your central location for all of your display settings, including resolution, refresh rate, driver info., and color depth. The display applet has 5 tabs: Thmes, Desktop, Screen Saver, Appearance, and Settings. The 5th tab is where you make adjustments that relate directly to your monitor and video card. Look at the Settings tab. At the bottom of the dialog box, you'll see 2 options. Screen Resolution and Color Quality. By moving the Screen Resolution slider, you can change the resolution. The most common resolutions are 640x480, 800x600, 1,024x768, and 1,280x1,024.Your system may have more or fewer resolution options.

The color quality is the number of colors displayed on the screen .You can change the screen resolution with a simple slider and adjust the color depth from 4-bit all the way up to 32-bit color.

Running a 32-bit color gives a nice, realistic tone to images, and many games insist on it.

Clicking the Advance button opens another dialog box with 4 or more tabs.

The monitor tab gives you details about the currently installed monitor and enables you to make changes to the driver and the refresh rate.

After you make your changes to your monitor and it still is not working properly, it must be your video card which is not seated.
In layman term, your video card is not plugged in firmly in the slot!!

The front panel switches seem to be the culprit.

Red color problem


Could be a bad main board or a bad LCD panel.

Make sure your cable is not causing it by wiggling it at each end.

Check that none of the capacitors on the main board or power board are bad.

Call Viewsonic and find your closest service provider. Have them check on the price of the main board. If it's under $50 it might be worth buying to see if it fixes the ptoblem.

Severe gradient issues / problems with darker grays


So your sure when you go into the monitor settings, and color, it is set to like 9300k or something? It probably isn't the monitor, because the video games you said display just fine.
