Re: Northgate Monitor - Model No. KM-718

On Earth Day Google 'turned off their lights' and made their home page black with colored logo and white lettering. Since then, all my pictures have a green tinge. I've tried auto adjusting and using the menu on the screen itself to fix the problem to no avail. Can anyone help with this?

Hi, Assuming that the monitor does not have any problem or defective components/settings, you can try adjusting your PC by: 1. Right click on any clear are of your desktop; 2. Click on properties; 3. Go to Settings tab; 4. Set your Screen Resolution to your desired size; 5. Verify that you have Highest (32bit) setting in your Color Quality; 6. Click on Advanced button; 7. Click on Monitor tab; 8. Select highest Screen refresh rate (maybe 85 Hertz) within capacity of your video card & monitor; 9. if a selection or setting does not work, pressing escape will revert you back to the previous setting; 10. Apply, OK. Hope this be of some help/idea. post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

The computer monitor viewing screen continues to flicker and change color tints at random moments. It makes it difficult to view the monitor screen clearly. I would like to know how to solve this problem...

have you made sure the video cable is plugged into the screen and the back of the computer correctly. You could also try a new video cable, because the problem may be that the wires inside the video cable have frayed. If that doesn't fix the problem you could try using a different monitor and see if you can replicate the same problem with a different monitor, if you can, the computer may have a problem with the graphics card. If you can't replicate the problem with a different monitor, it seems as though your northgate innovations monitor has developed an internal fault, if the monitor is within warranty try and get a free repair or get it replaced (if you have the receipt.

The constant auto-adjust pop-up is a indication that the power supply is about to die. As the voltage varies the monitor control board momentarily resets and you get the adjust screen. We have a step by step repair guide posted on our web site at: Check he sticker on the back of your monitor for the last letter to determine the version of the E173 that you have. The letters will be either c,f or b.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Samsung 226bw visible flickers just after it is turned on

You may have a faulty inverter or loose power inverter connection. OR
You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

My Monitor flickers when computer starts

If "messing" around with the CRT connection on the back of the monitor causes it to work then I suspect there is some physical damage to. Specifically what connection/connector did you mess with? I can give you more advice if you give me more to go on.
