My background on my screen recently developed a purple hue to it, instead of a white. Can this be corrected?


This is likley a problem with the monitor's signal cable. Try moving the cable around steadily and see if the color suddenly goes back to normal or changes to a yellow hue. If this is the case and you are able to remove both ends of the cable then a replacement can easily be purchased from a local computer store or online. (Try www.amazon.com or www.monoprice.com).

When i switch on my pc the monitor display a blue power light for 5 seconds and then it turns to orange and nothing displays on screen.


Make sure you have connected the Video cable properly, Please disconnect the Video cable from the Computer and connect the monitor only to the power source. If you monitor shows anything like "Check video cable" or "No Signal" that means the monitor is working fine. You just need to connect it properly to the computer


For any further assistance feel free to get back with your comments .

My lcd tv has a purple screen and no sound


same problem all set to replace TV but tried another source DVD instead of dish and it was fine. Possible the cable (cheap HDMI) but reboot the dish (hard) pull the plug and fixed it up, probably the HDMI connection at the source or the TV (or the cable)

Screen is flashing and buttons dont work.


Check the video cable first.

Try connecting to a different computer.

If the cable is not causing the problem, then you have a faulty LCD controller board or a defective input signal board (the one where you hook up VGA/DVI cable). The LCD panel ribbon cable must also be tested or replaced.

PSU, Inverter and LCD panel are not faulty for sure.

Dell C521 Where to connect monitor?


This means that you have an external video card (which is not outside the computer). This video card will be plugged into the motherboard. That message is saying that the port on the back of the computer that your monitor is plugged into is the wrong one. You need to look for another port on the back of the computer.

Here is a picture of a VGA port that you should use if you have a VGA cable to connect the monitor (Blue Ends).

Here is a picture of a DVI port that you should use if you have a DVI cable to connect the monitor (White Ends).

So depending on the cable and connections that are available on your computer and your monitor depends on what you have to use. I hope that wasn't too confusing. Let me know if you need more info.

Screen color is purple


if you have access to another monitor use if to verify the monitor is the problem and not the video card of the computer.
does the monitor allow you to adjust color and tint(hue) because the tint or hue control changes the overall color from green to purple. or the color control circuit has failed leaving you stuc with a purple screen.
