NEC LCD1980SX - displaying colored blocks not synchro

Hi, I have a NEC LCD1980SX, most of the time it displays blocks of all colors (like no syncho) and sometimes the normal image displays correctly. I was thinking about the cable but since the internal menu is not displayed correctly neighter, I think the problem is somewhere else. Does anyone already experiment that kind of problem. I'm used to repair TV set but LCD screen I'm not sure I can work on that except on the power part. Advice ? Thx Phils

Dear User...

You can adjust the brightness and contrast of your monitor to improve the readability of text and to make digital pictures appear more like they'll look when printed.

To improve the results when adjusting the brightness and contrast settings for your display, use Display Color Calibration. (Display Color Calibration helps you adjust these color settings and others.) For more information about calibrating your display color in Windows, see Calibrate your display.

The way you adjust brightness and contrast varies and depends on your specific display.

Brightness and contrast buttons on the front of the monitor. Some monitors have brightness and contrast controls on the front and use the standard symbols shown in the following image.

On-screen menu. You can change the brightness and contrast settings for some displays by using an on-screen menu, and then setting the brightness and contrast in the resulting menu. Many times, you can view the on-screen menu by pressing a button-possibly labeled Menu-on the front of the monitor.

My monitor screen is pink, both the background & the letters/graphics.

Go to control panel then settings then Display and it will give you options to change it, the color is also changed by buttons on the bottom of your monitor.

If Blue colors display properly in pictures or graphics check the display and size settings of your computer in relation to the size monitor.

If there is a problem with the blue color because of a problem with the monitor you might be able to compensate for it either with controls on the monitor or with the control software of your video card.

Monitor color display problem

Go to the control panel. Click on display. The display applet is your next stop. The display applet is your central location for all of your display settings, including resolution, refresh rate, driver info., and color depth. The display applet has 5 tabs: Thmes, Desktop, Screen Saver, Appearance, and Settings. The 5th tab is where you make adjustments that relate directly to your monitor and video card. Look at the Settings tab. At the bottom of the dialog box, you'll see 2 options. Screen Resolution and Color Quality. By moving the Screen Resolution slider, you can change the resolution. The most common resolutions are 640x480, 800x600, 1,024x768, and 1,280x1,024.Your system may have more or fewer resolution options.

The color quality is the number of colors displayed on the screen .You can change the screen resolution with a simple slider and adjust the color depth from 4-bit all the way up to 32-bit color.

Running a 32-bit color gives a nice, realistic tone to images, and many games insist on it.

Clicking the Advance button opens another dialog box with 4 or more tabs.

The monitor tab gives you details about the currently installed monitor and enables you to make changes to the driver and the refresh rate.

After you make your changes to your monitor and it still is not working properly, it must be your video card which is not seated.
In layman term, your video card is not plugged in firmly in the slot!!

Cmv monitor bad color

The problem is your monitor, not driver or settings or video adapter cards. You have basically two options get another CRT or LCD display, or if it is still under warranty call the company get a "Return Authorization Number" and ship it back to the manufacturer. I did that with a NEC MUltisync 19" years ago, it turned red, there was little ability to actually change the red image at all. cI Shipped it back to NEC and it has worked ever since. Good luck with your monitor.
