You can try replacing the VGA cable first or wiggleing it to see if it goes in and out, if that doesnt resolve your issue then replace the monitor.

My dell E207WFP lcd first flickers and then flashes red,green, blue, black, white and green color after some time of use ...


some of the capacitors are blown on the boards that are inside the unit
the lcd is on its way out. I recomend when getting a new one to turn it off whenever you are not at your pc. even though it goes to sleep after a while of no activity there is still a current going through the unit because if you move the mouse it will wake up. I know this because I was a bench technician and I have done board level repairs. These capacitors have anywhere from a 20000 to 40000 hour life span so when not at your pc turn it off!

Monitor is green screen


I'm going to assume this is a conventional tube-type (CRT) monitor since your problem seldom occurs on LCD models.

First, try another monitor if you haven't yet. It's possible the trouble is in the video circuitry of the computer, although this is quite rare. You'll probably find the monitor is at fault.

A picture tube needs to make three colors: red, green and blue. It's possible the transistor or integrated circuit controlling the green output has failed and is turning the green on all the time. This is a problem which can be fixed by replacing the bad part, which is only a couple of dollars (not including repair labor).

But it's also possible the tube itself has gone bad and is causing the green to stay on all the time because of an internal short circuit. In this case, the part needing replacement is the CRT. It's completely uneconomical (and usually impossible) to replace the CRT and set it up properly. The cost of the repair far exceeds what it costs to buy a new LCD monitor now.

In general, it's not worth making any repairs on a CRT monitor unless you can do the work yourself or know someone who can. Even if you can find a shop that repairs them, with labor charges you usually only need to spend a little more to replace one. Now is probably the time.

I connected my mag monitor to my emachines pc im trying to make the speakers work on the monitor so far no luck ////??? the monitor is a mag lt782s and the pc is a emachines t6410


You should have been provided with an audio cable when you purchased the monitor, it is a standard male to male 3.5mm cable, possibly with green ends on it. One end will plug into the monitor, the other will plug into the speaker port on your computer, usually colour coded green
hope this was helpful.

My monitor turns yellowish i can still work what is the problem. the monitor is a Acer V233H


The red "gun" of your CRT monitor is going bad. You will need to get a new monitor, and you should seriously consider an LCD flat screen. It will save you allot in electricity.

A CRT monitor is a very cool piece of technology inside... even though they are going obsolete with the advent of modern LCD displays.

In every CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) monitor, there is a trio of "Electron Guns"- they fire electrons at the front of the screen, hitting it with billions upon billions of electrons... the "bullets". Each gun is aimed at a set of colored targets, called "pixels"... one gun hits red ones, one for green, and one for blue. Combinations of these colors make up everything we can see.

When the red "gun" cannot fire enough electron "bullets" at the screen, the blue and green together make the picture appear yellowish.

If you want to learn more, look up "cathode ray tube" on wikipedia for starters!

A word of warning- the technology is very cool (I used to teach how CRT screens worked as part of my job teaching Missile fire control radar for the Navy), BUT:

THERE ARE VERY HIGH VOLTAGES INSIDE A CRT MONITOR THAT CAN KILL!!! DO NOT OPEN
THE CASE!!!!

Remember- the electron "guns" inside are shooting billions and billions of electrons at the front of the screen. They are being collected from the screen by a high voltage "supply". Most CRT's operate with anywhere from 15 to 45 THOUSAND VOLTS!

I need help in my computer, last night my computer's screen color is normal but today i start my computer so its screen color has been changed in green .. so tell me how it has chaged and now wat do to do?...


This can happen dur to the following reasons
1. Monitor cable that is connected to the tower may be loose, disconnect it and reseat it properly.
2. Monitor cable is damaged, please check if the cable is pressed against some thing and damaged, if so you can detach the monitor cable and buy a new cable.
3. Monitor is faulty, the color functionality electronics is bad, this can be rectified by a monitor service personnel.
4. Display card is faulty (onboard or add on), to check if this is not the scenario - Disconnect the monitor from the tower and turn of the monitor and the switch it on you should be seeing colored bars, if the colours are looking good then the monitor is fine and the display card is faulty.

Please check the above steps one by one and reply to this post in case you are unable to narrow down the cause. Thank you for contacting Fixya.

Black screen


Depending on what kind of laptop you have, your button may look different. Look at the Function keys (all those keys up at the top that have F's in front of them) and see if there is another colored symbol on any of them. You should find a colored symbol that looks like a rectangular monitor.

Press another key toward the bottom of your keyboard that probably says "Fn" or some other kind of "Function" key - not Alt, Ctrl, or Shift. Hold that Fn key down while you press the first key you found that looks like a monitor. That will change your laptop video output mode between several different modes like: laptop LCD panel only; LCD panel and external monitor; and external monitor only.

The purpose of this is if you wanted to plug another monitor into the back of your laptop, or a projector for a meeting or presentation, etc.

When I turned off my monitor last night, it was fine. When I turned it back on this afternoon, all of the colors were darkened and discolored. It looks like my contrast was change, but it wasn't, since no...


is this an lcd flat panel monitor or a crt? if it is a flat panel then you may be dealing with blown capacitors on the vga board inside. they can be replaced therby repairing the monitor. if it is a crt then just recycle it and buy a newer lcd monitor to replace this old one.
