Question about eMachines E19T5W 19" Monitor
About a week ago the screen get a slight greenish tint to it, but not enough to stop using it. The discoloration was uniform over the entire screen.
Then yesterday when I turned it on it went off, and the power light started blinking. It was like it was "starting up" over and over again. Finally it came on all the way, and stayed on.
Last night it went into sleep mode and it did the same thing this morning.
I read another post about the power light blinking meaning "bad caps" on the power supply cord, but that post didnt' say anything about a discoloration, so I thought I Would try to see if anyone knows what this could mean.
Thanks in advance! :)
Is the monitor still under warranty? (probably only the first 12 months)
Try connecting the monitor to a different desktop/notebook computer, to see if it is fine.
If it is, you have a problem with the video-card in your computer, not a problem with your monitor.
There are "capacitors" inside the monitor, that serve to supply "smooth" and "ripple-free" power to the electronic circuits. If you have "bad" capacitors, they are not doing what they should be doing, which causes the electronics to malfunction.
So, if your monitor is a CRT monitor, it's time to responsibly recycle it, and buy a new one.
If your monitor is an LCD monitor, take it to any TV/video repair shop, and pay them $25 to $50 to "inspect" it, looking for "bad caps". Or, spend that $25 to $50 to buy a new LCD monitor.
