Re: Red Dot and OUT OF RANGE problem

You might be able to take back the monitor since you just bought it, but manufacturers generally have a specified number of bad pixels for which they deem the panel to be functioning acceptably and they will only replace it if the number of bad pixels exceeds that limit.

Redhat 9 is rather old and I don't remember if this will work, but just in case get to a prompt and type 'setup' as root. If it is there you will have several choices of what to set up. Choose X configuration. If your monitor is not in the list, select one of the generic LCD monitors that match the native resolution of your monitor.
You could also tweak /etc/X11/xorg.conf to a resolution that will work but I doubt you want to tackle that.

The discoloration problem is due to the near by magnetic field appliances like speakers which are very near to monitors ...

I have a red dot on a Coby TF-TV2001. What can I do to repair this?

If you mean you have a pixel that is stuck on and is always red, there's nothing you can do. The only cure is to replace the display. LCD displays sometimes will have a pixel (sometimes several pixels) that doesn't work properly. The manufacturers know this, and as long the display falls within their specifications for what's acceptable, they don't see anything wrong. These specs include the total number of bad pixels, the number of bad pixels that can be clustered together, and where they can be on the display. If you have just one or only a few bad spots, they won't do anything for you. If other problems develop, such as a whole row or column goes bad or a section of the display fails, then you can see about having them fix it if the warranty is still in effect.

What does it mean by dead cells?

I assume this is related to your LCD monitor.
I think you mean dead pixels. The LCD monitor has tiny pixel elements, one for each red, blue, green color and each one of these colored pixels are turnes on by a transistor. When a transistor fails then the colored pixel it controls does not light up. This is a dead pixel and it shows up as a tiny black dot.
If the screen displays a blue screen, a dead blue pixel will appear as a tiny black dot in the blue screen.
You normally would not notice a few dead pixels unless they are grouped together.

It's seems you had a stuck pixal... Turn your monitor off and try this tips: Wn't work in every case. It may take a few attempts to make sure you are pressing exactly on the dead pixel.These instructions will fix "stuck" pixels, not "dead" ones, like red, blue or green. An alternative, but similar technique involves gently massaging the stuck pixel with a warm damp soft cloth.Alternative technique to tapping: Using a rounded pencil eraser, push with moderate pressure into screen at stuck pixel.
Good lucks!
