    Well, it was alright last time I shut it down, next day I turned it on and the screen went red. The monitor should be around 2 years old. I run on windows XP. And I think it's connected with VGA.

    I don't think it's my PC's problem, and I don't have an option to connect my PC to another monitor. I don't know why the menu button doesn't work.

To make sure that the monitor is ok, do you by any chance have an option to connect it to some other monitor? Or even your tv ...it should have a VGA in the back. It can be that your video failed on the motherboard of your computer. Let me know then we can proceed with the other step

    I usually try to eliminate the rest of the devices before drawing conclusions. If you cant connect it to another device, theres 2 options: contact Samsung and schedule a repair or take it somewhere locally to be inspected.

    samsung support site is :

would most likely be a problem with the mainboard does the menu of the tv look normal it should be blue. if the menu looks red like the video then it is most likely a bad mainboard if you were to post the model number i can find the part number for that mainboard

Screen changes colors only


Hold the Vol+ Vol- buttons down and turn on the power switch in the back of the unit.
The screen should turn blue and some square in the middle of it.
The noisy square is actually the bios being reset.
Once the unit turns itself off, you can turn it back as usual.
Note: Some of these units require a 3 button reset.
In that case hold Vol+ Vol- and Menu at the same time while you turn the power switch on in the back of the set.
I hope it was helpful.

Philips 23PF9966/37 color problem!


Most likely you can adjust it in the Service Alignment Mode (SAM).

Press 062596 followed by the STATUS button (upper left). Navigate to "White Tone", press the right key to enter and select "Normal" mode. Set the colors:

Red = 135, Green = 128, Blue = 133.

The "Cool" and "Warm" menus are deltas from the "Normal" settings:

COOL: R -3, G -1, B 5
WARM: R 2, G -3, B -13

Press the "MENU" button to return to the main menu, then the "Power" button to turn the TV off.

My aopen f2925 monitor has a green tint.


The solution: hidden menu within the main menu itself. Hold the Menu button down while pressing Power to power on, and release power button only when the screen comes up, still holding the menu button. The menu will appear and there will now be a hidden selection, "Auto Color", printed in a red-on-black font at the bottom of the menu. Use the +/- buttons to access it, and press Menu. My green/yellow tint went away! Now my picture works great, and the setting lasts through Auto-Adjusts and Resets!

Color has too much red


Is this happening when you are switching between color tempature (Normal,Warm, and Cool). You wont be able to access it in normal menu.
You will have to accesss the service tech menu. enter "062596 then info", if u enter the code correct at bottom of screen you will see a warning menu only access by a service tech , continue in menu you will see on main option screen "alignment" enter this. Go to white point adjust the three temp settings (Normal, Warm, and Cool) settings as follows.
Color Temp. I Red I Green I Blue I

Cool 122 120 121

Normal 125 118 108

Warm 127 110 75
( These are factory specs u can tweak them to your own perference)

After u set these press left on remote and exit back to main service menu and store these setting before turning TV off set these settings

I see this alot when Philips manufactured the TV. The did store the settings.

Blinking lights when PC is s.down


Not sure what happened as I had a whole message typed and lost it. Here I go again. I hope it doesn't post twice.

We have an Acer AL1715 monitor which started having this problem after a power surge. It was the only piece of equipment affected by the surge. I searched for an answer when it happened but got nowhere. I contacted Acer about this and they told me I would have to bring it to a tech to be looked at. Decided on a whim today to try Googling again and found this website and Q&As.

Though we didn't know what "Brunin" was nor saw an "F" change color, we did get into the Menu on the monitor and used the right and left arrows to see what was there. We decided to use "Reset" by highlighting it and pressing the "Menu" button for "Enter".

This appears to have solved the problem for us. The monitor is no longer toggling colored screens when idle nor when the computer is off.

Thank you for solving our problem. It has been very annoying for the user and anyone sitting across from her monitor during a meeting.

IPod click wheel frozen


Try to restart the Ipod.

Hold the select button and the menu at the same time until you see the screen go off.

If still does not work then try to enter disk mode and see if it works.

Disk Mode:
Reboot the ipod via Select and menu, right away hold the select and play button and hold until disk mode comes on. Does the wheel work?

If still does not work then reboot the ipod again and let it reboot normal to go back in apple firmware. If all buttons are working and none of the above works, I would assume it is not software related.
