My dell monitor turns yellow after sometime... What can I do for it? What are the possible solutions.?

Under options for the monitor try degauss. This will de magnetize the monitor which may help.
Don't try to fix anything on the inside because old CRT monitors have dangerous capacitors
that can cause an electrical shock even when unplugged. Personally I would recomend getting
a new flatscreen. In the US they are pretty cheap even for a large screen, and burn much less electricity and look much better. If looking for a new monitor check online usually much cheaper
than big box stores. Newer models also have better refresh rates than the 1st ones that came out
so if your a gamer the performance of most newer flatscreens is pretty good.

Only half of my actual screen image showing on my monitor, Factory reset messed it up in the first place so that didnt help any

Thealfords03 Hi I had the same problem but luckily I was able to fix it. If you press the menu button down for 10-15 seconds The OSD lockout scren will go away and you will have access to the regular menu. When I did this I noticed that on the menu screen, all the menuoptions would become highlighted one by one as if I press the " - " button on the monitor. This gaveme the conclusion that the button was the culprit. The button was not stuck because I could press it and it would go in and pop back out. So I removed the base plate (3 screws) and then I found that on bottom 2 corners you will see a **** on the black inner plastic (use a flashlight) Stick a flat tip screwdriver there and gently pull the black frame out. Once you do that you will gain access to the panel that hold the 4 buttons. Remove the plug and separate the board with the buttons from the black plastic base by prying the plastic clips back. If your faulty button is the " - " button like mine then gently pry the metal cap thats on the top of each button until you remove it ( If done carefully you can replace it by pressing the metal plate back on) Once you remove the metal plate you can remove the actual button. Look down to locate a thin copper concave circular plate. I used a metal polishing paste to shine the copper concave plate on both sides once shined place it back in the button and put the button inside then press the button downto ensure the button goes down and pops back up. If it doesnt then gently press the middle of the copper plate with the tip of a screwdriver and try it again. If the button goes down and pops back up you can place the metal plate over the button and press down to fit down in place. Reassemble and this will fix your issue. I was so glad I got rid of that annoying OSD lockout white screen once I did this technique. Good luck and post something if it worked for you!

Osd lockout flashing in the middle of my screen

This has most likely annoyed many of you at some point. You turn on your monitor one day and see a jeering message telling you something about an “OSD Lockout”. It doesn’t allow you to change any of your monitors settings, including the setting intended to turn off this message. While I’ve only seen this error on HP monitors I know that others have encountered it on other brands as well. The fixes I provide should work on those monitors too. (Note: OSD stands for On Screen Display.)
Fix One: Plug in the monitor and power it up. Hold down the Power button until you get a message saying “OSD Unlocked”. If the problem persists after OSD is unlocked then unplug the monitor from the wall, wait 20 seconds and try again.
Fix Two: Turn on the monitor and hold down the Menu button for 10-20 seconds. This should unlock the OSD.
Fix Three: Turn off the monitor, press down the Menu button and then turn on the monitor. Wait 10-20 seconds. This should unlock the OSD.
Fix Four: The Menu button may be stuck in a pressed in position. To get it “unstuck” you’ll usually need to open up the monitor. This could be tricky unless you know what you’re doing. Unfortunately there are too many models of monitor for me to provide detailed instructions. If you have warranty this is where you want to contact the manufacturer.

I stole the above from a site, thefakegeek
Step one worked for me earlier tonight!

FYI: in future, it would help if you posted model and manufacturer.

When dvi plug is used screen gets funny bright colored lines

FIX for design fault of ASUS VW222u Problems with monitor using dvi while vga works fine.

my ASUS VW222u had the same problem many are reporting after about 8 months
with developing colored "noise" onscreen or dancing red pixels while using dvi but vga is fine.

luckily my old man is an electronics engineer, rather than be without a monitor since vga still works fine we decided to have a look.

we worked out the problem. note: this is a fix for the random picture noise problem while using dvi port.

If monitor works ok with vga but dvi has noise then this fix should work for you. monitor (will void warrenty)
2.unplug all the the cables going to the power supply and dvi port assembly, undo two screws pull down and out you wil now be looking behind the dvi port and be holding a metal module that contails power supply and dvi- and vga port. will notice a piece of brass foil joining the earths on your dvi and vga cable this is the problem creating an "earth loop" as both vga and dvi ports are earthed to the metal casing this extra earth is causing the problem introducing noise.

3.carefully unwrap the brass foil from the two cables and seperate, insualte cables with electrical tape. (wrap around each one seperately they should now be indiivdual cables) will notice a silver spring type peice of metal on the assembly that pushes against the
main body of the unit when re-assembled. scratch the metal with a screwdriver where this peice pushes so you get a good connection when you reassemble it, do not touch as finger grease could screw up the connection. (this step is not vital just a good thing to do why your in there to make sure the the unit is properly earthed)

enjoy, fixed mine and was quite easy, take care with the plastic latches they are tight - ensure you remove all 5 screws, to see the fifth easily the monitor stand must be removed (two screws then stand slides out from rear of case)

good luck

Tft screen displaying on and off for a few seconds

It flashes brightly over and over? Sounds like the Power Supply is gone or on the way out. This is caused by the Power Switch Transistor being too loosely clamped to heatsink allowing it to become too hot, or one of the capacitors responsible for filtering or frequency of oscillation is drying up and changing value. A good tech can fix either. Most likely the filter cap and AC (60hz) is getting thru. This is a $3.00 part

Or the inverter in the LCD is biting the bullet. If you turn down the brightness, does it stop or do it less often? THAT would be the invverter. Inverters take 5, 12 or 24v from the mainboard and run the itty-***** pencil-sized florescent lamps that light up your screen. Lamps are $8.00 and inverters can be $50-80, but ebay has them for alot less

Hopes that helps

How do Iopen the case of an HPvs17x monitor?

The Capacitors on the power board are usually the reason for failure of an LCD. If you open the HP VS17 ( I can provide an exhaustive step by step If I have to) remove the five screws for the power board ( larger of the two boards) and look for an area where there are 4 caps (see pic). Look for exploded, popped up, bulging, or leaking caps and replace with the same or slightly higher tolerances. The one I replaced last night were (2x )1000uf25-50volt and (2x) 470uf25-50volt. Check the rest of the board for similar issues and replace as needed.
