Question about HP Pavilion M703 17" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Greeen!!!!!!!!! ok this is kinda weird problem. my monitor's green values keep changing from normal to some high values making the picture look irritatingly green. it becomes normal after some time though. I've tried alot to find out when the color is changing(i mean with any change in external factors) but i couldn't. and recently i've also seen the red values changing. Im gettin so mad that one day i'll surely break the monitor. one more thing i forgot to mention is that the gui menu colors of the monitors have normal colors even when the rest of the screen becomes green. Plz help me out i'll b greatly thankful for u.

Re: Greeen!!!!!!!!!

You can try to Degauss the monitor. It still sounds like the video cable is bad. That last part you mentioned about the OSM (on-screen Menu) having normal colors comes from the monitor and has nothing to do with the cable or pc. That tells me its the video cable, or the video cable connector (pins maybe bad) or a bad connection somewhere. There could be a bad connector inside the monitor where the video cable is attached to the electronics board. Sometimes those contacts just get oxidized and quit transmitting a signal. They need a good cleaning.

I recently obtained a optiquest Q19wb monitor to add as an extra screen to my laptop. When I plug it in the picture is all green and does not use the whole screen. I tried to decrease the green value but...

When you get color casting on the screen (Red, Blue, or Green casting), it is either the pin on the video cable are bent or not insert properly, or broken cable inside the video cable, it can also be the video card/jack itself. You need to try this monitor with another PC first to find out where the problem is.

Or just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.

My monitor is all weird colors

Generally, this is caused by the loss of one of the main color inputs (Red Green Blue). Do the Following:
  1. Check the cable connections at both the monitor and the computer. Look inside the connector for any bent bent pins (there may be some that appear to be missing, generally that is normal) then reset the connections firmly and tighten the retainer screw snug, but not extremely tight.
  2. If that doesn't resolve, try the monitor on a different system and see if the problem follows the monitor. If it does, try a different cable. If the problem doesn't occur on another system, then the video card of the effected system is suspect.
  3. If issue occurs on multiple systems with known good cables, then the monitor will need replacement.

Greeen filter?

?? the colour of the OSD is OK but the rendering of your video signal from the 'pooter is wacky? Either the video cable or video drive from the 'pooter is the cause.

Screen is now a weird color

Your video cable has a broken pin inside. Check the cable at the videocard end (bend it in different directions) and do the same at the monitor end. It should become normal, then it's just a case of keeping it in the right position or replacing the video cable.

Hope it helps =)
