Green horizontal


I believe that you must reset the colors of the screen by the buttons on it or try to set colors by the software that the product came with it if any. There should be a setting to configure the 4 basic colours like red green black etc. Try to adjust green. If nothing helpes go the monitor back to test it by the store you bought it if there is warranty. Hope that helped!

Screen returned from supplier background bright pink, how do I change to white background.


To check if the video card or the Sharp LCD monitor is faulty, connect a different monitor to the computer. If this monitor displays a normal image then the video card is OK and the Sharp LCD monitor's back-light is faulty. Send it back to the supplier to have it fixed (they should not have reurned it to you in this condition).
If the other monitor also displays a bright pink background then the video card is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Hi my monitor has bright colours on it and i cant make out what im doin its really bright and hurts my eyes


Turn off the pc but leave the monitor on. unhook the monitor from the pc. the screen SHOULD run a "self test" with a moving white green red blue box. if that box is on a bare black screen and there are no bright spots or cracks or anything weird looking, then the screen itself is ok. If however, you see odd shades of blue and pink and it looks cracked or scratched or has lines in it, then it is time to replace that screen.

return the LCD to seller and ask for replacement. LCD colors should be even from top to bottom. test it with plain color as a background such as blue so you can easily see the faded portion.

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.
