Everything has a yellow tinge.

Someone just gave me this Dell 1701 Flat Panel monitor. It works well, but everything is showing up really yellow. I tried going into the control panel and changing the color-that didn't work. I tried going into the menu on the monitor-that didn't work. Can anyone please help me?

Re: Everything has a yellow tinge.

Have you tried giving it a good tap on the side? Hey its worked before. Have you tried hooking it to another machine to verify "yellow." Was it yellow on your friends computer? How old is the monitor? Good Luck, Tim

The screen resolution and bit color is controlled by the video driver NOT by a driver for the monitor.

Not sure if this is your problem, but I have seen this with another Dell monitor on three separate occasions. The solution I found was to turn off at the wall power socket, unplug at the wall socket, plug back in, turn on at socket etc and everything was fine. Guess something hangs up somewhere.

My monitor is not showing red colors? how do i fix

There is a number of possible reasons why your monitor lost the red color. A good guess, however, is a broken cable or connector. Check the plug and socket of the cable for bend or broken pins. If everything looks OK, try to change for a different cable.
If the problem persists, a pin of the connector soldered to the PCB internally may be broken. This is an easy repair for a service technician but I really recommend you do not do it yourself.

Dell 1900f monitor contrast/brightness problem

CLick start/run then type in dxdiag. Go to the display tab and click test dirext3d. There should be an 3d cube that comes up and spins around. After the cube leave cancel everything else and close dxdiag, Your problem should be solved for a pretty long time. If it happens again just follow the steps again.

No Power LED and Nothing on the screen

Check your power supply to your screen cause it should at least show a amber light at the screen to show that there is power but no proper signal from the computer.

So below are step to check the power supply to your monitor. Assuming if you use a different monitor on your pc it works

1. Check your fuse both internal and external
2. check if power is receipted by the LCD

Compaq 1701 flat panel monitor

You have a bad set of capacitors on the power board. If you have little to no electrical knowledge then I can't advise strongly enough to take it to your local TV repair shop.
The repair is not expensive and will save your life and your sanity.

Hope it helps =)

Dell ultrasharp 15 inch flat panel lcd

It totally sounds like the backlight is toasted. If that is the case you will have to replace them. Normally if the power inverter is shot, the monitor will power up briefly at least and then shut off. If you can use a flash light and see some sort of image on the screen you know that your VGA chipset works however your backlight(s) are burnt out. If not, more than likely your power supply (power inverter chipset) is broken and needs to be replaced..
