Too much magenta on the screen

I have a Philips 170b4bgbs monitor which is displaying too much magenta. I have tried re-setting the colours but the magenta is still prominent. I run Vista Home Premium on my PC. Will a monitor driver update help?

    Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. It seems odd that the colour has suddenly changed. I have tried adjusting the colour in the OSD to no avail and I'm sure I have the latest driver for my monitor. I'll try the video card - thanks

There seems to be only one driver for all Operating Systems for this monitor. You can try going into the OSD (On Screen Display) and adjusting the color. You can also check to see if there is an updated video driver for your video card. This may be your problem rather than the monitor.

Here's a link to the Philips Support page for your monitor where you can download the User's Manual and driver. But it seems the driver has not been updated since 2005.

My philips 104E 15" monitor is not displaying red colour at all.other two colours are perfectly OK.What could be the cause? is the red gun gone?


Yes, or the RED driver circuits is bad, check soldering joints on the CRT PCB. Simple thing to do is to check the VGA cable connection first, check the video card (reseating the card).

Black colour displaying become greenish and narrow vertical lines


Most LCD monitors have a default refresh rate of 60 Hz. Older monitors also have limited resolution. Please check your display settings and ensure you're not using a refresh rate higher than 60, or a resolution higher than what it supports. If either one is the case, you're lucky the LCD still works.

Bright screen with very low contrast


I fixed it myself, it seems that the monitor have some problems remembering it's settings and sometimes it automatically set its settings to crazy values that are out of the range that we are allowed to input. For my case, the setting that was crazy was the gamma setting since it was set so high. I wasn't able to bring it back to a normal setting so I found a way to do it by resetting the monitor. So to reset these display settings such as colour, contrast, brightness and gama, you need to turn on the monitor and unplug the monitor without turning it off and plug it back in again. It will automatically power on and the correct default settings will be present.

This forum isn't very helpful is it?
