this is one of the most common probs with CRT monitors. loose connections are common. try whacking the monitor to see if this has an effect.

Re: No red

Check the pins at the end of the VGA adapter of the monitor (this is the cord that plugs the monitor into the computer). One of these pins may be bent and may not by connecting properly to your video card. You can use a very small flat head screw driver (such as one from an eye-glass repair kit) to bend back into place. If all the pins appear fine, then there may be something wrong internally with the device and it should be sent in for repair.

Screen is yellow

Sound like you lost one of your colors (red, green, or blue). You can try an autosync function on the monitor, if there is one, or autocolor adjust, or something similar. But it sounds like the monitor LCD panel might be defective beyond repair. Youn can check your color levels. SOmetimes one will drop to zero for no reason. Try running your finger (pushing lightly on the LCD) around the edge of the monitor screen. Sometimes a transistor just gets stuck and you can close it back up. Keep track of where your finger is when the picture is correct, and home in on the exact spot. Then, just massage that area with your finger until the display looks right. That doesn't always work, but it's worth a try.

Hi My monitor that i have used to let us shut off the monitor manually, it no longer does it reads key lock whenever we try to turn it off and if we try to adjust any settings it will read key lock in the...

I'm not aware of any ability to lock the keys on any monitor I've seen. I've not used a lot of Scepter monitors but it seems like a rather pointless option to have. So unfortunately the monitor seems to be malfunctioning and will have to be repaired or replaced.
The only thing i can suggest trying is unplugging the monitors power cable for a few seconds in hopes it will reset the monitors control buttons.

My E771 monitor colors suddenly shifted with

1. video-card gone bad;
2. video-cable gone bad;
3. video-cable not tightly-connected to CRT;
4. video-cable not tightly-connected to video-card;
5. "red" gun inside CRT gone bad.

Disconnect the video-cable from the computer, and try again to adjust the "red". If red-free, then it's time to responsibly recycle the CRT.

Reconnect & wiggle the video-cable, to see if that induces any "red" onto the CRT.

Connect the CRT to the VGA-output port on a notebook computer, to see if that video-card generates "red" as one of the primary colours.

Give the CRT a strong "whack" on the side, to see if "red" makes an appearance.

Occasionally, when I turn on my computer, my Sceptre X9G-NagaIV (Black) 19" LCD Monitor screen has a dark pinkish hue to it. Adjusting the monitor's controls don't help. If I unplug the monitor from the...

This could be as simple as the video cable isn't connecting securely. You could try replacing the cable or screwing it tighter. We recently had a red tint on an external monitor for a laptop because the cable was loose; since the laptop moved regularly, screwing the connector to the port on the machine wasn't a convenient solution. The other reasons for an odd tint like that is the video card or the monitor starting to fail. Attaching the monitor to a different computer and seeing if the problem repeats will check if it is the monitor and not the video of the computer.

I hope this helps.

You can try to Degauss the monitor. It still sounds like the video cable is bad. That last part you mentioned about the OSM (on-screen Menu) having normal colors comes from the monitor and has nothing to do with the cable or pc. That tells me its the video cable, or the video cable connector (pins maybe bad) or a bad connection somewhere. There could be a bad connector inside the monitor where the video cable is attached to the electronics board. Sometimes those contacts just get oxidized and quit transmitting a signal. They need a good cleaning.
