Question about Samsung SyncMaster 940N Flat panel Monitor

1 Answer

My monitor's color is mixed with the color yellow

I accidentally bumped the auto color settings on my monitor and it the colors are yellow shifted no matter what I adjust or do. So blue is now green and red is (barely) orange - if it exists at all. How do I get back to having a full spectrum of colors on my screen?

I have a Samsung SyncMaster 913C

Thanks Rich

There is an option on the monitor to reset colour to factory default. Just bring up the on screen menu by pressing the left most button at the botton. Use the button next to this to highlight the colour settings which I think is the 5th or next to last option down. You will then see the option to reset colour and various other factory default settings. Happy computing

Yellow screen


There are a variety of problems that can happen to the display monitor of an Acer laptop.
The most common problem is the screen fading or becoming too hard to see.
This can be corrected by adjusting the brightness levels.
Another common problem involves incorrect color, which can be resolved by adjusting the display color settings.
Yet another big problem is the display freezing or appearing jumpy, which can be resolved by updating the display driver.

Hold down the "Fn" key.
Tap the right-arrow key to brighten the display screen.

Tap the left-arrow key to darken the display screen.
Release the "Fn" key to save your display settings.
Color
Right-click on the desktop and click "Graphic Properties."
Adjust the screen resolution by clicking "Display Settings" and choosing a resolution setting from the drop-down menu.
Click "Apply" to check the resolution of the display.
Click "OK" to save the resolution settings.

Adjust the color of the screen by clicking "Color Correction" and moving the brightness or contrast slider to the right or left.
Click "Apply" to check the color resolution of the display.
Click "OK" to save the color settings.

Click "OK" to exit the Graphic Properties application.
Update the Display Driver
Right-click on the desktop. Click "Personalize," "Display Settings" and "Advanced Settings."
Click the "Intel Graphics" tab and choose "Monitor Properties."
Click "Driver."

Click "Update Driver" and choose "Search Automatically."
Click "Install" to install the updated monitor driver. After the driver has been installed, click "OK" to restart the laptop when prompted.
Yellow screen
Yellow tinting in monitors can be caused by either a software calibration issue, bad cables or a worn out display and backlight.
Before you assume that the issue is a hardware one, determine if there are software settings that affect the color or if the cables are working correctly.
After checking these items, and if the yellow tint only occurs on one monitor and you cannot eliminate it, the problem is a display hardware issue and it is less expensive to replace the monitor.

Unplug the power cord from the monitor and replace it with another one.
This is a standard power cord used in printers, monitors and desktop PCs so you can trade it for a cable from another device.
Turn on the PC and monitor to see if the yellow is still there.
Turn off the computer and monitor.
Replace the video cable with another VGA cable from another monitor.
Use one from another computer before going out to buy one.
Restart the computer to see if the yellow tint is gone.
Right click any area on the desktop and click "Properties" from the list of options that appears.
Choose "Display Settings," then "Advanced Settings."
Select "Monitor" and click the "Calibrate Color" button.
Wait to see if the yellow tint goes away.
Locate the temperature color settings on the monitor.
Adjust these to see if there is a change in the color.
A warm color setting will give the screen images more of a yellowish tint.
Click on the "Start" icon, then click "Control Panel" and "System and Security" and choose "Device Driver."
Locate the video driver and click "Update."
Select the option allowing Windows to connect to the Internet to find an updated driver.
Wait for the update to complete in a few minutes.
Expect the yellowing issue to disappear.
Connect the PC to another monitor to see if the same problem occurs.
If the yellow tint does not appear on the newly connected monitor, the problem is a bad backlight or display and the monitor should be replaced with a new one.

Why do i have a green screen after i turn the screen adjustment screw?


since every display color monitors are only work with 3 primary color which are red, blue and yellow. You could also search it that by mixing these colors, you could get any color your want. Thats how color monitors work. Now in case of green color, it creates by mixing blue and yellow. When you are turning the screen adjustment screw, the red color plug will become lose, makes it appear green.
I hope your got the reason.

Inherited Compaq FS740 but after hooking up monitor will show green for a short time and then color is yellow? Is it dead? Has set up for a while


Check the pins on the cables. Single color presentation but clear picture indicates the pin for a particular color is borken on teh cable. Remember Red Green and Blue are mixed to make other colors. If you have predominantly one color then its due to cable not haveing all pins inserted properly or damaged.

Not true color


I seem to have found the solution (and the cause, perhaps?) for this problem!

I was having the EXACT same problem with a monitor I'm repairing for a friend. The capacitors on the power supply board were blown (CapXon capacitors, who'd've guessed), which was keeping it from powering up. After replacing the capacitors, the screen worked beautifully. But it had this weird yellow tint!

The strange part was that pure colors - red, green, blue - all appeared perfectly OK on screen. Curiously, the menus would show in the proper colors, except for one: the manual color adjustment menu, which illustrated "Blue" as a sort of off-green in the icon. Auto-Adjust would always fix the colors for a split second, then go back to yellow. Reset didn't fix it. Color reset didn't either. So, exactly the same problem as above.

The solution I found was hidden within the main menu itself, a sort of "easter egg". <b>Hold the Menu button down while pressing Power, and hold it down until the screen, and menu, appear</b>. There will now be a hidden selection, "Auto Color", printed in a red-on-black font at the bottom of the menu. Use the +/- buttons to access it, and press Menu. Voila! PERFECT COLOR! Perhaps this menu was accessed by accident, and calibrated to an incorrect color key. But now my picture works great, and the setting lasts through Auto-Adjusts and Resets!
