    Hi, I have a Sony VAIO K-25 laptop with Windows XP Home. Last weekend, my laptop was switched on overnight, and in the morning, the display colors on the desktop screen went bright white and fuzzy. I have tried to reduce the brightness to the minimum, and also tried to change the display settings on the Control Panel to different colors, but am not having much luck. I can barely view the icons on my taskbar, it is very bright and white. I am not sure I am describing this very well, but bottomline, it appears that the color contrast does not work anymore. Can anyo
    ne help? thanks in advance.

I turned it off for a day and back on. It's working now somehow.
Maybe the monitor got overheater or something.

Does this tv need a converter box or can I just use an antenna for over the air channels???

Most likely it needs a converter box. To see for sure, just turn it on and look at the channel type.

1. Channels are displayed as decimals, such as 17.1, 17.2, 17.3, 18.1, 18.2, etc. In this case it's a digital TV which needs only an antenna. Also usually TVs like this display no signal as a blue or black screen, though sometimes they can have the fuzzy gray screen.

2. Channels are displayed only as single numbers, 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. Most likely the screen is gray and fuzzy, maybe making a loud fizzy noise, when you have no signal. It's an analog TV and you need a converter box.

Picture goes black with gray fuzzy lines ~ 1/2" apart horizontal.

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following
symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can
examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life
of your monitor or TV by several years.
Take it to a repair shop.

Hi, I have a asus VW192DR lcd monitor but it cannot open properly, only mixed colors, is there any chance that i can fix it on my own? pls help.

ASUS DISPLAYS are pretty FUZZY, HARD TO REPAIR but also HD and VIVID. ASUS DISPLAYS are usually HARD SEALED from the inside. Try paying it a rest and RESTARTING . Doesn't work? , DETACH the STAND to make it easy to work. The SCREWS to OPEN an LCD MONITOR are usually near the VGA/DVI/HDMI CONNECTORS. HOPE THIS HELPS.

I have an HP dv6707us laptop. The display started getting fuzzy and turning redish and would fail to display anything after a few minutes. I plugged in an external monitor and it works fine. I disassembled...

The screen replacement is defective or the part number is wrong, check the part number on the back of the original screen and compare it against the the one you replaced, it should match.

Movement of my desk caused the monitor (XG-91D) to lose some of the colors. The screen only displays greens, blue, brown, gray and black tones. Readjusting the screen temporarily helped but it goes out...

Try a new cable. If any of the pins is slightly bent the monitor will not receive the correct signal to display. I would recommend a new cable even if you don'y see anything wrong with the old one.

Fuzzy, unstable display

This sounds like a high-voltage power supply problem, which would need to be diagnosed by an experienced computer or electronics technician.

Check to see if there is a small focus knob on the back. If so try turning it back and forth three or four times to "clean" it....then adjust for correct focus.

Symptoms like this can also be caused by accumulated dust inside the monitor.
