Turned on our Compaq E500 laptop and the black color in the screen has disappeared and red has become dominant. Now mostly all shades of red and blue. Can this be dealt with? Thank you.

Open Display properties in Control Panel.

Sounds like the screen inverter is going bad on you. Call a pc repair shop for information on repair.

Rca d52120 need more green and red color


sounds like the Blue CRT drive has an issue which causes the blue to become dominate thereby limiting the red and Green CRTs from projecting normally. Is your screen full of blue?

Its glittery white because i briten the color but when darken it gets green


you must re-adjust in the RGB (Red-Green-Blue) setting. depending on the brand of your TV, because there are set manually from the TV (you must open the cover of the rear of the TV). and there is a set directly from the remote only, with the open "factory settings", then you can re-adjust RGB color, especially green, not too dominant with the other colors (RED-BLUE). how to set is that you need to neutralize the color, (color TV sets to zero level) so that the image becomes black and white. if the green is too dominant, then Decrease the level of Green Bias or Green Cut off/ G-drive.

Display Problem Black turns Red


sounds like you have a loose connection ....either into the screen or into the motherboard....the connection between board and screen runs through the hinge brackets and often comes loose after machine has been opened and closed a lot.....need to be comfortable opening up laptops to check the cables as it can be tricky to get to the back of the screen where the end of the ribbon cable is..

No DISPLAY ON THE SCREEN


If the external display works fine then the most common fault is the Inverter board for the LCD. By having the external display function properly, the video signal from the video graphics card is working.

The other fault could be, but generally isn't, the TAB welds on the LCD. Usually when these go a portion of the display will be lost first or discoloration e.g. red/white/or black stripe appears.

I generally don't include the CCFL (Cold Cathode Florescent Lamps) as a fault as the inverter is what supplies the voltage to the lamps.

TV Flickers up and down and screen is shifted to the right w/ red color dominating the screen.


Hi
The most likely problem is the auto focus module.
A costly repair.
If you are going to fix it ask for a rebuilt one.

Black screen


Hi,
I'd reseat the memory first. If there are two pieces, take first one, then the other alone in the system. Possibly bad memory. If that's not it, the lcd cable could be unplugged. Try connecting to an external monitor. If that works, it's the lcd somewhere.
Good luck
