Re: Colour dissortion

Usually, this is due to a bad connection on one or more of the wires in the monitor data cable. Either the pins aren't making a good connection to the port on your computer, or there's a short in the cable somewhere. If hitting the monitor solves it, it's probably a bad connection between the cable and the monitor, where the wires are soldered into place. If this is the case, I would suggest against trying to repair it. CRT monitors store large amounts of electricity, and a discharge while you are working on it can be deadly. Never open up a monitor case. Try wiggling the connection on the back of the computer next time and see if that fixes it. If it does, remove the cable and check for any loose pins, or bent pins. If there are any, the cable could be repaired, though 15" CRT monitors are so cheap you're probably better off replacing it. Look on for your city. If it has a cite for your city, it's likely you can get a cheap used monitor there.

1 Answer I have a Syncmaster 225 BW that became intermittent and finally just went gray and flashed between "analog" and "digital". I them borrowed a Syncmaster 920...

When you tried the replacement monitor, did you have the pc turned off when you connected it, if not then restart the pc and it may work. I realise you probably already have but I don't have that info.

Anyway try both monitors with a computer that is known to work properly (make sure it's off when you plug them in), if both monitors don't work then it's a monitor prob, if one does and the other doesn't then you know one monitor isn't working and if you still can't get the other one to work with your pc then it would suggest that you also have a video problem.

Sounds like the original monitor may have a prob with the inverter or control board, it may even be some bad caps or even a switch (unlikely but possible), but it could be explained by a video problem. So narrowing down where the problem is, is the first step.

Hope this helps you out. Once you've found out where the problem is, you could post back and see if someone on here can help you fix it.

Here's a link, in case you find out it is monitor related, it would help with all the possibilities I mentioned. - you'll want the section on troubleshooting computer displays

Hi there i am having a HUGE problem with my hp pavilion F1503 and was wondering if i could get some help...This monitor is for some odd reason not submitting colours, there is a colour one...

Components assembled in China are rated for 1000 Hrs. and 85C. Using a Fluke 16 or other Capacitor tester; you will find that the Video Controller has blown SMD Caps. You can get these passive components at Be very careful when soldering these in. This will solve your problem. I also drill several additional holes in the heat shield and back cover to help dissipate heat from the inverter board. If you are not technically savy in component testing I would recommend purchasing a different model /monitor.

Display problems please help

This seems to be a problem of the Invertor or powersupply board.If you are technically able check the boards visually,look for bulging discoloured capacitors. Try replacing these components it may solve your problem.

Is the problem on all signal to display? If any signal is dark, the inverter is going bad.

Colors not distinguishable

Is your monitor by any chance sitting next to unshielded speakers or anything else which could generate an electomagnetic field? You can get some terrific colour shifts with these items. If you do have anything like this put some distance between them and the monitor. Also the auto degauss coil circuitry could be faulty in the monitor. Take it to a repair shop and ask the tech to degauss the tube and see what difference it makes. If it fixes the problem get him to check the degauss system. Don't try this yourself. There's lots of voltage running around inside a TV. Fix don't Fry BMW
