Question about HP Compaq FS 7550 17" CRT Monitor

2 Answers

Screen color changes, white becomes yellow.

I have a compaq 7550 17" monitor that when you first turn it on is okay, after running awhile the white turns yellow.  I tried shaking the monitor and hitting the sides to see if there is a intermittent connection, but it doesn't clear up when you hit or shake the monitor.  After awhile it clears up until it appears again, this could be hours, days whenever.  Any suggestions?

Re: Screen color changes, white becomes yellow.

I think you need to clean your monitor inside of it, dust can conduct heat making the screen material active and creating the yellowish tint to the screen.

I don't think it's a connection problem, becuse it if was you would not see nothing on the screen at all but only one connection error message or like 3 colors.

so you have to open it and clean it I usally use a hair dryer to clean inside stuff or a paint brush.

try cleaning it, but if you have special screws that you have to take out from the monitor you then have to buy special tools for those screws.
I had the same problem right now with my monitor, it's 7 years old, and decided to get a dell flat screen 22 inch.
but that's what I think is your problem, it's either dusty or oxidized meaning different oils are layered inside on the circuit boards. which are like insulators

Hanns star hu171 I have two and both of them only show a white screen when on

Hook a spare monitor to the computer, if okay! hanns star are the problem, but if the spare shows the same symptom, the Video Graphics Card in the computer is the issue. If computer okay! change the video cord from the computer to the monitor if possible just to verify.

The screen is all yellow. i am using samsung sync master 713N. it was working fine but now suddenly all white has turned light-yellow.

It does sound like a bad monitor, but first! hook a spare monitor to the computer, if okay The Samsung SyncMaster is the problem, caused by the master board which is attached behind the LCD display, the video signals are feed to the main board where the colors are balanced. To repair this would not be cost effective "cheaper to buy new" Now! if the video cable from the computer to the monitor can be detached, sub another cable just to be sure. Finally if both monitors show the same issue, the problem is in the video graphics card of the computer.

Screen got yellowish color

Sounds like overstressed video cable, at least that wire for BLUE signal, 'cause when image is yellow - the BLUE color is missing.
Open the monitor and ring coaxial wire in blue insulation.

Hi my monitors screen becomes yellowish.all colour effected y dis

Do you have a CRT monitor?
Have you tried to adjust the color on the monitor?
How is it connected to your computer?
It sound like one of the guns on you monitor died. But there is some testing you should do first.
If it is a CRT monitor and it is connect your computer properly. First thing to do would be to replace the cable and or try a different monitor that you know works.
To confirm try adjusting the color. If that does not work, if it more purplish it is the green gun, if it is orangish it is the Blue gun. That would be cause by a failed gun or driver.
If the gun is gone it is best to get a new one. It will save you money in the long run.

Thank you...

Sudden color distortion

this can happen if there is a poor connection of the VGA cable - tighten the screws on both ends, just in case one is loose
