Red has vanished from my monitor

My Emachine has a color problem which is not the monitor. About a month ago the red washed out of it--what I mean is that when I try to adjust the colors with the control on the monitor I can do blue and green but not red. And it is obvious the red is gone because all the colors look sickly and washed out. But I hooked up another moitor to it and still have this problem so I think it is a computer command or hardware problem. Any ideas what has caused this or how to fix?

Looks like your video card is having the problem then. Did you connect your monitor to another PC too?

I have a Soyo Monitor MTNIDYLM2286 monitor. It was working fine for 1 year. 4 months ago it lost red and blue color so I replaced the laptop computer connection cord and the color came back. I was away ...


You know if it pops back and forth this could be an indication that the video card on your PC may not be doing well. The way to really make sure is plug your monitor into another working computer and see if you have the same issue if not and the monitor works fine you may want to replace the video card for your computer. Monitors are a dime a dozen these days especially CRTs that would be how I would approach this issue. Do not invest in a repair unless it is a flat screen monitor if you are going to pay for a repair at least do it for a flat monitor I have about 23 of them in my garage giving them away they are around. Thanks for using FixYa! John

Can't red and green colors


This usually means the red or green or both primary color module is bad. Monitors come with 3 primary color module controllers and they use them in various combinations to make the other colors. The primary colors are blue, green, and red.

I lost all red in my monitor.


With Windows Vista, right click on the wallpaper background, click personalize on the bottom of the pop-up, and choose windows color and appearance. Fiddle with the intensities with the various colors. Messing with the pink setting seemed to help. If you're lucky, the red will come back and you can choose to revert to the default settings.

Cmv monitor bad color


The problem is your monitor, not driver or settings or video adapter cards. You have basically two options get another CRT or LCD display, or if it is still under warranty call the company get a "Return Authorization Number" and ship it back to the manufacturer. I did that with a NEC MUltisync 19" years ago, it turned red, there was little ability to actually change the red image at all. cI Shipped it back to NEC and it has worked ever since. Good luck with your monitor.

Reddishness in the screen


Have you loaded the drivers which came with the monitor. This will probably allow you to change the settings.
Right click on an area of your desktop and choose properties. Look at the monitor and make sure the resolution is set to the recommended level possibily between 60 or 75 dependant on the model. Also you can get to the display card settings here and change them to suit. Dont get carried away or you can make it so that you cant see whats on the screen at all to be able to change it. Could also be that your monitor is faulty. Check with your manufacturer. It its an old telly type monitor maybe one of the "guns" have gone so you dont get the right colour mix of red green and blue. If this is the case you will need to get a new screen.
