Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor too bright

The white balance on my monitor is off. Everything looks over exposed. Blue is light blue, red borders pink, yellow and gray are near invisible. I have messed with the contrast, the brightness, the gamma, but nothing seems to work.

    I just hooked the monitor up to another computer and it worked fine, Any ideas on why my computer would change the settings as such?

Your video card (or driver) is probably to blame.
Try hooking a new monitor up to the computer to test this.
If so, try the advanced settings in control panel. Many cards give you the ability to manually alter the picture.

If that doesn't fix it, replace the card.

I need detailed instructions on how to connect a wii console to an asus vw266h monitor


You need to get another cable for that WII that is for HD. It has 5 connnectors on it. The red and white are the sound, the other three are for the video.

My monitor in blurry and has a pink tinge to it. I can click a button on the side and bring up a box that says brightness, contrast, sharpness,etc- but I can't move off the brightness to change to other...


Use the LEFT and RIGHT arrows (or UP and DOWN arrows)
on your monitor to move between the different items (brightness, contrast, etc.)

However, "pink" is generated when your computer tries to generate "white" (mixing red, blue, green) but one of these 3 "primary" colours is not being generated.

Try your monitor on a different computer, to see if the "pink" is due to your monitor, or due to the video-card on your computer, or due to the data-cable between your monitor and your computers.

My monitor is all weird colors


Generally, this is caused by the loss of one of the main color inputs (Red Green Blue). Do the Following:
  1. Check the cable connections at both the monitor and the computer. Look inside the connector for any bent bent pins (there may be some that appear to be missing, generally that is normal) then reset the connections firmly and tighten the retainer screw snug, but not extremely tight.
  2. If that doesn't resolve, try the monitor on a different system and see if the problem follows the monitor. If it does, try a different cable. If the problem doesn't occur on another system, then the video card of the effected system is suspect.
  3. If issue occurs on multiple systems with known good cables, then the monitor will need replacement.

Hi my monitor has bright colours on it and i cant make out what im doin its really bright and hurts my eyes


Turn off the pc but leave the monitor on. unhook the monitor from the pc. the screen SHOULD run a "self test" with a moving white green red blue box. if that box is on a bare black screen and there are no bright spots or cracks or anything weird looking, then the screen itself is ok. If however, you see odd shades of blue and pink and it looks cracked or scratched or has lines in it, then it is time to replace that screen.

The 3 colors wires that hook into my pc are yellow, red & blue, but the colors on the pc are: pink, white and blue is there a color match up?


I suspect you've got the audio and video cables mixed up.

Video inputs on monitor will be yellow for video and red/blue for audio. PC end of cable will be round and connect to your video card. Or .. you should have a cable with a 15 pin mini D on both ends or a DVB cable.

The pink, white and blue connectors on your pc are audio connections for speakers/headphones.
