Question about HP A4033A 20 in. CRT Monitor

2 Answers

Color changes and flickers

Screen colors randomly and abruptly change. Still see images and read text. Most dominent is blue hues. After a while (15 - 20 minutes) goes to normal and then intermitently returns. Removed R, G & B jacks one at a time - no change but replaced cable anyway. Downloaded latest firmware for video card (NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 420). Always set to 60Hz, 800x600, 32 bit. Problem not going away. Could it be video card or monitor or other???

The screen turns green after playing videos for 20 minures

The Video Controller works off of the RGB principal. RED/Green/Blue pixels. The mix color is dependent on the formation and density of the pixel and rates. When one or more colors are absent the only functioning color will dominate, and it is Green in your case. The screen liquid crystals in Red and Blue are failing and only a screen replacement will fix the situation.

The color is "off" on

ladywoman197, 2 things for you to do. 1. disconnect-reconnect vga cable a few times from the DB15 vga port on the pc. If problem (pink hue) persists then try here: Your unit may need some new capacitors installed on the power supply printed circuit board. Read fixya profiles of "budmrtn" "12fixlouie" and also visit youtube for video clips of lcd monitor repair. Do the vga cable thing first!!! Could also be vga graphics card inside pc not making good contact with monitor cable. 12fixlouie

The color is blue

Any of the 3 internal wires that delivers the tree color (Reg-Grenn-Blue) is disconected or damaged.

Open your monitor and try to locate that wires...

Good Luck
