LCD showing wrong colors

Hello, I have an lcd where the colors where fine before. Then one time when I restart my pc the lcd autoconfigs by itself and is showing the wrong colors. It is now too bright and a little too "red". Everytime I hit the autoconfig button it shows the correct color (the one before) for a moment then finally it decides that to settle on the wrong colors.

In spite of the fact that I properly downloaded and installed my ION Film 2 SD Plus Slide and Film Scanner into my Toshiba Laptop computer, I cannot scan anything into it. I repeated the downloading a

i am surprised that it is not a stand alone scanner. for almost the same price i have a wolverine which basically works on mains power, or powered from laptop. it scans and stores the images in the unit. those can be later transferred to the laptop while connected via usb. one question, does the scanner lcd show the scanned image? if not may be something is wrong with the unit itself.

Dell display failure

8 Beep Codes means its a Display failure. It could be a problem with the Motherboard or the LCD display itself.

Turn off the system. Press and hold down the 'D' key and press the power button once, do not release the D key you should see a set of colors on your screen.

If you do and the colors are fine then there is nothing wrong with the LCD display and the problem lies in the Graphics controller on the Motherboard.

Please call Dell Technical Support for appropriate part replacement.

Try running the LCD Bist Diagnostics. Press and hold the key while powering the system on. This will start the Preboot System Assessment (PSA) diagnostics which includes a test for the LCD.

In the process of running the PSA, if the graphics test error (0334 or 0333) is given and the user presses "Y" to continue testing, the LCD BIST will begin. During the LCD BIST, a solid color screen is shown and 5 different colors are displayed. While the colors are displayed, the system beeps every two seconds and the lock lights (Num Lock, Caps Lock, and Scroll Lock) illuminate to indicate that the test is running. This can be used to determine if something is wrong with the display.

While running this test, the LCD is operating on its own, free of the video controller which may be discrete (a video card) or onboard (on the system board). The test allows you to tell an LCD panel problem from a problem with the controller. If the colors are displayed across the screen without a problem then the issue lies outside of the LCD.

I would place bet on the LCD going/gone bad. If it works with an external monitor that is about all that is left. Google LCD replacement for screens.

White Display

Here is two solutions:

1. Grab a LCD Color Tester, Run it through RGB.
- If it is still white its the LCD
-If it not at all either the inverter board is bad or the mainboard.

2. Sometimes its brightness control, look under the manual.

ViewSonc VX924 LCD Monitor

Check the information at Viewsonic's website regarding their warranty:

If you have your proof-of-purchase and it shows the monitor is less than a year old, it would be covered. You would need to follow the procedure on their website to have the unit repaired or replaced, but it would not be your job to try to fix it.

Screen showing funny lines and colors.

That would be the screen itself that needs replaced, if you needed the inverter board you screen would be dark and hardly visable

White screen, have to do a soft restart and then words show up

I have had this problem recently myself and would like you to know that it is possible to fix. The white screen error or otherwise known as "white screen of death" is caused by the lcd color screen on the ipod itself. That is why its functions still work but the screen does not. Once you replace the color screen it will be as good as new.
