    I have an E196FP monitor. Once while the computer was off, themonitor went completely red (or even green). After that when turned on,the screen is too bright. Light colored backgrounds like grey or blueappear completely white - and white is very bright. Light colored textare almost invisible. I have connected the monitor with differentcables to three different computers with different graphic cards, butthe problem remains. But when I do auto-adjust or reset to factorydefault the monitor goes back to normal (nice colors and text) for afew seconds then goes back to the horrible state. I have played withbrightness and contrast, RGB - but no solution. Please do help me !!

The screen colour changing is apparently an auto test procedure on the monitor and was prompted by a fault with the monitor not automatically shutting down when the computer is shut down. The settings on the monitor have been adjusted to rectify this and the problem is now gone.

My Dell E196FP monitor flashs colour when computer shuts down and power is still on

my guess would be that the monitor cable is loose in one end or its missing pins have you tried a different cable?

If that doesnt work try to find the correct driver for your monitor that matches your operating system.

Dutch Dell helpdesk is not quite client focussed, but their sales department normally easily finds the right technician for you

Or in Dutch:

De Dell helpdesk in Nederland is niet bepaald klantgericht. Het beste kun je de verkoopafdeling bellen en uitleggen wat er aan de hand is en dat de helpdesk je niet fatsoenlijk helpt. De verkoopafdeling kan je waarschijnlijk snel in contact brengen met de juiste persoon.

My dell e196fp lcd monitor has white lines

Dell had a problem with horizontal lines in some of their monitors a little while back. I would try contacting Dell Tech Support to see if your monitor is one of the one effected. I think they were replacing the monitors that had the problem, but I'm not completely sure.

Greenish screen

sometimes speaker magnets or any metallic device can cause this disturbance in this type of monitor. also, if you are using dvi, i would reset all video driver settings to default. this may correct this green tint you are seeing as well. reinstalling the monitor software could have a positive affect.
