Re: Swapped colors in the monitor...

Sounds like you have swapped pins 2 & 3 in your VGA plug.

Samsung samtron 55v display problem

assuming that u r a professional..
i guess there is no problem with ur monitor, it sounds like itz due to graphic adapter..either the adapter on ur system main/mother board/agp/pci/pcie is damaged or itz simply 'driver corruption'..
don't panic..check for driver update/download n reinstall graphic/display driver..
however, 1st make sure that the Screen Resolution (1024x768 or as applicable) and Color Quality (32 bit or as applicable) is correct..from Display Settings->Settings tab..
always better to contact system admin/vendor....

About colors

It sounds like either an internal wire is loose, or possibly in the connector to your video cable. Make sure the connections for your video cable are tight both at the computer and at the monitor. If they are, try a different cable (cables are much cheaper than monitors, always start with the easy solutions first). If the problem is internal to the monitor, then it is up to you to decide whether to try to diagnose/fix it yourself, or buy a new monitor. The cost to pay someone else to fix it is likely more than the value of the monitor.

Colors not distinguishable

Is your monitor by any chance sitting next to unshielded speakers or anything else which could generate an electomagnetic field? You can get some terrific colour shifts with these items. If you do have anything like this put some distance between them and the monitor. Also the auto degauss coil circuitry could be faulty in the monitor. Take it to a repair shop and ask the tech to degauss the tube and see what difference it makes. If it fixes the problem get him to check the degauss system. Don't try this yourself. There's lots of voltage running around inside a TV. Fix don't Fry BMW
