The colors on my monitor are faded/bright always changing.
Its like the basic colors are there, and really bright. But just those. A light red next to a Dark red are almost indistinguishable. Red, Blue, and yellow are very distinct, but all other colors (like green) just seem to be very similar to the main three.

Re: the colors on my monitor are faded/bright always...
Right click on your desktop (not an icon but a blank space), click "personalize", click on the tab on the far right(settings), click the drop-down menu on the left side above the colored banner, make sure it is set to the most colors(usually 32). If you need a walkthrough for Vista I can provide that as well.

It is possible your colour cartridge has cross contaminated the ink reservoirs. To check this take the colour cartridge out and turn it over to see the coloured pads. They should look red, dark blue, and orange ( the colours are actually Magenta, Cyan, and Yellow, but are concentrated). If any of the pads are pale or particularly green - change the cartridge.
If the colours look alright, your issue is probably that your monitor makes colour by emitting light frequencies so is bright, printed images make colour by absorbing light frequencies so will always be darker. There is always the issue of course that your monitor also has a colour "temperature" bias. Photo pros calibrate their monitors and printers to match.
Check the backlight settings on the monitor, Sometimes they are set too low and it looks like the color is faded. In the monitor settings (on the monitor Itself) play with the color and brightness until you find a setting you like. If you need reset the monitor to factory.
problem with the monitor Display cable. it is damaged.
Normally monitor will receive 3 colors red, green, Blue signals from CPU. If one cable i.e Red wire connection is missing in display cable which is connected to monitor, Red color image on monitor wil be replaced with other fade color.
So, need the replace the display cable or display connector!
YOu can go to the monitor settings to make sure nothing's been changed. It could be an energy saver issue where the display dims after a certain period of time, and you can reset it to longer period of time so it would stay bright for you
Sounds like either the trapazoidal is off or the pincushion is set improperly. You should be able to find those settings via the monitors onboard menu. Either one can create such a problem.
You might also check into finding the factory defaults selection. This will reset all of the resolutions and refresh rate settings.
When you adjust your screen follow these steps in order...
Pincushion : Makes the screen look like ( ) or ) ( Trapazoidal : Makes the screen look like / \ or \ / Horizontal : Basically stretches the screen wider or skinnier to fit the monitor Vertical : Basically the same as Horizontal, only with the up and down properties Contrast / Brightness : Use this to find the perfect white and blacks Color : Finish your setup with adjusting to the perfect color.
This way you can always have your monitor set like you want it.
Well most monitors come with 2 preset color temperatures and the option to customize it(the rgb setting). Your monitor has them as well 6500K or 9300K. 6500 is more reddish(like outdoors) and 9300 is more a bluish white(like a tv, i like the 9300 more).
How u said its red and bright, what i would do is set the 9300 preset and if its still too red the customize the RGB by lowering the red. and If too bright then Lower the brightness(Press down on BRIGHTNESS CONTRAST page).
If you don't have the manual you can download the full manual from LG's download site here:
If you see that you can't get it just right,then the monitor might need adjustment from inside and you should make a qualified technician open the monitor and adjust that for you.
Hope this was helpful.
