Re: SyncMaster 551V poor colors

Hi, Based on your post/description and assuming that the CRT monitor does not have any failed component(s), it would appear that you have a weak picture tube. If relatively new, claim warranty and have it replaced; if in service for some time, it may require adjustment in the Screen and Focus controls of the FBT; if really old, you may need to boost the color drive transistors B+. The second and last suggestion above would require that you be familiar and comfortable working with TV/Monitor units, high voltage and working with the unit powered on. If you are not comfortable performing a do-it-yourself, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional. Hope this be of some help/idea. pls post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Out of focus monitor - 955DF

Edge-focus is notoriously tricky on flat-screen picture tubes. I have not found anything on adjusting the focus for this model. it seems to be a common problem, though it seems to be more of a sample-defect problem rather than a poor design; a replacement should be OK.
