Unless you're hell-bent on doing this, I'd say just dump it and get a new, cheap LCD. CRTs are not really user-servicable (as the labels and manuals clearly state.)

If you must, check out this site with a how-to...

Good luck. A new LCD would probably be less troublesome and time-consuming.

I have a Daytek moniter that now has a constint purple tint to it...how do i fix??


The purple tint is because your green gun in the CRT monitor is not working. Most probably it would be the green driver transistor ( or IC in some case ) that needs replacement or just soldering. These drivers run very hot and in the long run develop dry solder. All you have to do is solder it back but if you have no soldering experience take help because the driver circuit board is shielded with a metal cover and will need a experienced person to access it .

The monitor is blank (pale gray color). No information How can I find a monitor to replace it? The computer is a Dell Dimension 4600 series. I don't know what are the video characteristics of this...


Hello

OK, the package comes standard with a 17 inch screen(CRT). So, basically you have 2 choices, you can either buy a replacement CRT screen or you can buy LCD, these are the cheaper options available at this moment.

I would personally go for a LCD screen. the size is a personal choice, but i will not go any bigger that a 23 inch with the graphics card installed.

You will be able to buy it at almost any computer store, and it is cheaper than you think.

Please let me know if this was sufficient, if not, i will try and better explain myself.

Kind regards
Andrea

Find somebody with an old CRT-style monitor -- they are essentially WORTHLESS -- because they take up too much space, and not as nice a picture as an LCD, and offer to take it off their hands. Use it as a "test" monitor.

Or, it could be the video-card in your SEVEN-year-old computer.
Try replacing the video-card -- some friend probably has a "dusty" and "spare" video-card that can be temporarily used.

if the power light on the computer comes on, but you get no video or the monitor is powered on but goes into sleep mode then your video adapter on the computer is bad. this is a frequent occurance to the default onboard video adapters connected to the motherboard. you must purchase a pci or agp video card and install into the computer and this will solve your problem. hope this helps, please rate me thanks.

CRT works but LCD doesnt


You may need a driver for your PC as lcd differs from crt. They have a different signal input so update the video card drivers and you should be good to go.

Dell monitor


Sounds like there is a heat related problem. Probably a bad solder joint somewhere. Could be hard to track and would probably cost you more money to repair and it does to purchase a replacement monitor. 17" LCDs go for around $150 these days.

MONITOR ABCs
The monitor is a hardware device which physically connects to your video card. The monitor allows information and current status be be visually outputted similar to a TV.
monitor.gif Like most TVs, the computer monitor has a CRT, or Cathode Ray Tube, which is found inside the computer monitor as illustrated in the above picture. The CRT is the main component and most expensive part within your computer monitor. Within the CRT are three electron guns, Red, Green and Blue. Each of these guns streams a steady flow of electrons, left to right, for each line of your monitor. As the electrons hit the phosphors on the CRT, the phosphor will glow certain intensities. As a new line begins, the guns will then begin at the left and continue right; these guns will repeat this process sometimes thousands of times until the screen has been completely drawn line by line. Once the phosphors on the CRT have been hit with an electron they will only glow for a short period of time; because of this, the CRT must be refreshed, which means the process will be repeated as explained above. If the video card's refresh rate is not set high enough, you may encounter a flicker or a noticeable steady line scrolling from the top to the bottom of your screen. If you are encountering this issue, resolutions have been described on our video card page.

MINIMUM RESOLUTION The size is an important factor of the computer's running resolution. When picking the resolution, try basing it off the monitor's size for best use. 13-inch 640 x 480 15-inch 800 x 600 17-inch 1,024 x 768 21-inch 1,280 x 1,024


Hope this works for ya/Please dont for get to vote.

EMachine monitor quit


This could be one of three components:
1. The video card
2. Video Cable (cable from the monitor to the computer)
3. The Monitor

The way I would determine this is:


I would try to plug this monitor into another computer that you know works with other monitor. If this is a home computer and you don't have another computer to test this take it to a friends house. Use a different cable to connect the to computer and power if possible. Then switch out to the old hardware (e.g. power cable, video cable.) If all has been determined to work then it's probably the video card.


If you can do this at all I would suggest trying a new video cable they are cheap. Usually 10 bucks at the most or borrow on from someone else. If this is a DVI cable they are a little more expensive. VGA cables look like this btw http://www.networktechinc.com/cable-pc.html
