Re: color

This may be a cable problem, check the connector of your HD15 VGA cable for broken pins (there is usually one pin that is normally not present so don't worry about that one)

My 2001FP shows the contrast cotrol greyed out and the screen has very low contrast, which I need to correct. I use it with a Dell Inspion 9300. The laptop screen has excellent contrast. The 2001FP...

I have four Dell 2001FP monitors. The unavailable contrast is standard for this monitor when used with digital input (DVI). Make sure your brightness is at 100%.If you want a better result of dynamic range and color, the only effective option is color calibration. I use the inexpensive Huey Pro, available
several places, including eBay. Retail is around $100. It something one uses maybe twice a year, takes five minutes to install and use, and the results are notable. I'm a designer, and need excellent color. This is the best solution. Calibrate your laptop as well, and the color should be almost exactly the same between them.

As an alternative, you can use the color settings, select User Preset, and start with something around 40 red 43 green and 37 blue. Adjust proportionately upward until you get what you want.

Another possibility is to use a different connector cable if your laptop has that option, since your monitor an take four different input formats.

Good luck.

My monitor does not have any red color to it is there a way to adj. color inside of monitor. thank you

It is very dangerous to work on tv's or monitors without the proper training. They hold voltage even after they are turned off and unplugged, enough to seriously injure someone. There are however adjustments that can be made once you crack open the casing, but if it has already lost color, it will only continue to lose it if you can ever get it set back right again. You best option would be to acquire another monitor. If you want to try it anyway, there are screws in the back of the metal chassis that adjust color, hue, brightness, and shape, that can be adjusted with a small screwdriver.

My display has a red tint to it

Try adjusting the color properties of the monitor using the controls located on the front of the monitor.
If you can't correct the color, then it's a problem in the color circuit. As an ex tv repair guy I can tell you it may cost more than the monitor is worth to fix it unless it's still under warranty.

I have no color red on monitor.

Confirm the "no color red" by testing with another PC. If the same condition check if a color adjustment on the monitor is possible... like maybe a default setting. If the monitor still produces a bit of red it might be possible to edit the color adjustments using the advanced graphics adjustments; or a graphics program that your computers' manufacturer has available on your computer.

If nothing works the monitor may need repairs.

Monitor gone dull

there is a key on the keyboard which controls brightness. on mine it is the second key on the right, of the bottom row. it has a small sun on it. Press this key at the same time as the function key (on mine, bottom row, second from the left, blue key marked Fn) - and the monitor will brighten up.

Monitor Coloring

Well most monitors come with 2 preset color temperatures and the option to customize it(the rgb setting). Your monitor has them as well 6500K or 9300K. 6500 is more reddish(like outdoors) and 9300 is more a bluish white(like a tv, i like the 9300 more). How u said its red and bright, what i would do is set the 9300 preset and if its still too red the customize the RGB by lowering the red. and If too bright then Lower the brightness(Press down on BRIGHTNESS CONTRAST page). If you don't have the manual you can download the full manual from LG's download site here: If you see that you can't get it just right,then the monitor might need adjustment from inside and you should make a qualified technician open the monitor and adjust that for you. Hope this was helpful.
