Change colour settings on harddrive. I bought a new monitor thinking that was the problem but the colours are still wrong with the new monitor!! So I am presuming it is a problem with the harddrive? Colours are incorrect- for example pink is shown as blue, etc.

Hi there, I can help you with that.
It's not your hard drive at all. It's a problem with your display settings. Your probably running Windows, so do this:

Right click your mouse on the desktop. On the menu that drops down, find Properties and left click your mouse on that. In the box that pops up, you will find little tabs at the top. Find the tab that says Settings and left click your mouse on that tab. On the next screen that you see, look towards the bottom on the right hand side. You should see a button that says Advanced, left click your mouse on that button. On the next screen, you will see more tabs at the top. Look for the tab that says color management. Left click your mouse on that tab and adjust your color settings to suit you.

Let me know if you need any further help. You can leave me a comment. If you liked my answer, you can let me know by voting accordingly, and thanks for coming to FixYa.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Display problems as such that you have describe are not related to the hard drive. The hard drive is a storage device that saves your settings of the OS, as in this case display configurations. What you save,is what you get displayed.

Your described concern indicates a display problem. Suspects would be:

  • if you are using CRT type monitor, then one of the color is missing or faulty. This could either be one of the color drive transistors (IC) or the video cable has one wire cut;
  • if you are using an LCD/TFT monitor, then it would be the video interface/mainboard;
  • in some rare instances, it could be the video/graphics card/chipset (least likely).
Pls post back what type of monitor you are using. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

It can be one of two problem.
1) The monitor might have gone bust.

    But since the problem is stil existing after the replacement of the monitor. This issue is ruled out.



    2) It can be a problem with the colour settings on your system or missing drivers for your graphics card/motherboard/monitor.



    - To advise a solution for the problem 2, Please let us know the operating system you are using,PC details.

Colour blending problems.


Try updating your video card drivers as well as your monitor drivers and see if all the resolutions work at that point. If they work then everything is good to go, if it doesn't work then try another working monitor and if you still have the color blending problems then the video card is faulty.

Installed new color wheel not working correctly


Hi danny,

I also replaced the color wheel in my EP739 after the old one disintegrated suddenly. Colours were then all over the place. Actually, it looked like each colour channel was displaying all the colours of the rainbow!

Here is the procedure I used to solve the problem - maybe not as elegant as Marrie's solution, but it will not cause any damage, will most likely solve the problem, and you will be able to get everything back to the way it was if it doesn't work:
  1. Have the projector running and displaying a stationary picture. The right sort of picture to use is one that has a full range of brightness values from near-black to peak white. I used my lap-top as the source. Also, this way you can compare the projector's picture with the picture on the lap-top.
  2. Press the power button once. "Power off the lamp" dialogue box appears. Hold down the left arrow button until the service menu appears (takes about 8 seconds).
  3. Using the up/down arrow buttons, scroll down to "Color Setting" and press "enter".
  4. Scroll up to "Color Wheel Index". Make a note of the existing setting for later reference. You can change the Index setting over a range of 100 to 550 by holding down the left/right arrow buttons. As the setting changes, the colour rendition will slowly change, and at some point the colours will come right. Note that the changes are quite slow. Find the lower and higher settings where colour aberrations just start to appear, and set the Index mid-way between.
  5. If this doesn't fix the problem, return the Index setting to original. My original setting was 354 and the new setting was 461.
I do not advise touching any other settings in the service menu unless you have access to a service manual and know what you are doing.

Good luck!

Acer al1716 colour problems


Yes, I'd say your cable is faulty. If it is the type you can disconnect, then change it. If it is moulded to the monitor then you might have a problem. check all of the pins on the connector to make sure they are in tact and not bent.

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.

This forum isn't very helpful is it?
