Question about Princeton Digital VL2018W Monitor

2 Answers

Monitor color is green.

I have dual monitors set up. I came in one morning and one of them is green. Every program I run is seen in green. When I transfer the program over to the other monitor it changes to a white background. How can I get rid of the green? I have already tried to reset to factory installation with no luck.

I have an issue with my screen being green and it doesnt matter on what computer or vid card I use...or VGA or DVI inputs. This monitor also doesn't "blend" colors well. Is there a simple fix for this or is this a transistor problem?

Isolate whether the problem is with the monitor or the cable and video card. Try swapping the cables between the two monitors. If the other monitor now turns green then the issue is definitely with the cable and/or video card In this case try replacing the "green" cable. Sometimes a pin or two in the connector will get bent or lose connectivity with a change of temperature in the environment or the pets/children decide to yank on them. Make sure there are no breaks in the cable. Check both card socket and monitor socket for any blockages or shorts. If replacing the "green" cable doesn't help, then it's probably an issue with the video card itself in which case, you'll need a replacement.

My dell inspiron 530 shows a block with red, white, green, and read, can't get to the my programs????

That "red white green and blue" block is a color pattern tester. that means the monitor is on, but is not receiving a signal, so its running tests. If your monitor has Digital input and VGA input, you may just need to switch inputs. Look for 1 or VGA if youre using the blue hook up. look for 2 or digital or dvi if youre using the larger white hook up. Some monitors also have 'auto detect'. If you are in "auto detect' bbut the color box is still there, then your monitor is not receiving video signal from the computer. It could indicate a bad cable or no signal being sent by the machine. If you try another monitor, you can see if the machine is working. I would try a monitor setting for VGA-1 first, since thats most common.

Monitor turns green

This sounds like a problem with the cable. Monitors have Red, Green, and Blue signals. I have seen it where the cable has a short, or the plug has a bent or loose pin, and this causes the monitor to turn green.
It is also possible, but doubtful, that the video card is trying to run it as a Black and White monitor. B&W signal is sent over the green channel.

You should go to the display properties on your laptop while at home and disable the dual monitor setting. You should then have all programs open on your laptop screen and not on the secondary monitor. If running XP, right click an open spot on desktop and select Properties. If running Vista, right click an open spot on desktop and select Personalize. Go to Display Settings, select the second monitor and uncheck "Extend the desktop onto this monitor". Hope this helps.

Depending on the internal video card, you have to install the correct driver for your monitor, and video card, other than that is just setting on control panel and advance setting , all the features, for the colors, or profiles.
