    is it yellow and you can still the images, like your desktop and so on? if you can... try fiddling with the cable and the VGA connector at the back of the pc.

If the display looks normal other than being yellow, it's missing blue.

This may be because of a bad cable. Sometimes the wires inside break from flexing. Try wiggling the cable (as mikeslab suggested) at the end where it connects to the computer. Also check the plug for bent pins.

It's more likely the monitor has lost blue due to solder connections to the blue output transistor or transistor failure, or that the picture tube itself has gone bad and the blue gun has quit. Tube failure is pretty rare. I've seen many cases of bad connections and transistors, though.

If the cable and plug aren't the cause, you can have a service shop check the monitor and give a repair estimate. But if this is a 17- or 19-inch monitor, you might just want to replace it. New LCD's are $150 or less. To repair yours would be around half that cost already, possibly more depending on labor and parts costs.

Moniter has excess yallow colour


If you can't fix it by the menu, you can try unplugging it from the wall and computer, and wait for a few minutes. If that doesn't work; the monitor is busted and will need to be replaced.

Don't worry, you can pick up a CRT monitor these days, bigger screen size than yours, for real cheap. :)

Connect Playstation 2 to computer monitor


try going to your local radioshack and asking for a cable to do it. Tell them it needs to be "double male" infering that the piece sticks into another part instead of bieng stuck into. Then tell them one end needs to be "RCA cables" (the red white and yellow ones) and the other end needs to be a computer moniter cable. There are several types of moniter cables you can use, look in the back of your moniter to see what you have. There should be writing that says any 1 of the following "s video in", "dv in" "video in" etc. ask the radioshack man to get the non RCA side of the cable to have one of these on it. If you need to, it helps to take a picture of the back of the moniter where all the input plugs are, and show it to the radio shack man, he can probably help decide which cable to use. Once you buy the cable, plug the red yellow and white side into the red yellow and white holes respectively on the PS2, and the moniter cable into the moniter. Turn on the moniter and the PS2 and... Voila. PS You may need to take out the cable connecting the moniter to the PC to put in the new radioshck cable. I hope this works for you-BCA
