Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

ViewSonic monitor color red is orange

The colors on my ViewSonic monitor suddenly went "wrong." Red is orange, the other colors are florescent and everything is very difficult to view. I searched a few situations, and those all seemed to be where red was black, which is not the problem here (I don't think). I am totally not a “fixer.” Is there someplace I can take it to get it fixed in the Seattle/Everett, Washington, area? Does it even make sense to try and fix it or do I just have to buy a new one? I'm totally at a lioss. This is the 3rd monitor I've bought in the past 2 years. VERY frustrating. Thanks, J

Hello, My name is Diane. I've had my flat screen Acer monitor for 14 months and all of a sudden my monitor has no red, orange or pink color. My screen colors are green, blue and yellow. What is the...

hello Diane, actually yellow is mixed red and green.
I thing you should check your cbf cable first (VGA cable).
Or if you have pattern test, use it to make sure which color has lost.
Change VGA cable may can solve it.
If any problem, please let me know.
Thanks and good luck.

My E771 monitor colors suddenly shifted with

1. video-card gone bad;
2. video-cable gone bad;
3. video-cable not tightly-connected to CRT;
4. video-cable not tightly-connected to video-card;
5. "red" gun inside CRT gone bad.

Disconnect the video-cable from the computer, and try again to adjust the "red". If red-free, then it's time to responsibly recycle the CRT.

Reconnect & wiggle the video-cable, to see if that induces any "red" onto the CRT.

Connect the CRT to the VGA-output port on a notebook computer, to see if that video-card generates "red" as one of the primary colours.

Give the CRT a strong "whack" on the side, to see if "red" makes an appearance.

My 19 inch ViewSonic monitor shows red /voilet

Please check the VGA cable at both ends to make sure there are no bent pins and fit into the socket properly at both ends. Also try this monitor with other PC also since it can be in the video card.
