Question about Princeton Digital VL2018W Monitor

1 Answer

The black color of the monitor has green in it?

I have the oddest problem of green showing through when there's supposed to be black on the picture. I have no idea what could be causing this, but all the other colors look alright.

Someone please help!

Thanks!

Hi, This sounds like a color driver problem with the RED. I will assume that the blue is good since yellow will only be present if the green and blue are both ok. Below is a copy of my response to a similar post at http://www.fixya.com/support/t181021-zenith_a25a11d_no_red_color "...If you are comfortable working with a soldering iron, a continuity (VOM) multi tester and a fair knowledge of electronic components, then perhaps you can repair the missing color red. You have to open the unit, expose the small printed circuit board that is attached to the small end of the picture tube. There will be many components present but you will need to focus yourself on three (3) transistors that are bigger than the others sometimes with an aluminum heatsink. It is also possible that instead of 3 transistors you will have one power IC. In any case these control and provide the drive for the 3 colors of your picture tube: red, green and blue. One of them is either dead or suffers from cold solder to any or all of its pins/legs. You have to visually inspect the solder joints of these big transistors/IC and determine if any is dull in color, loose of simply not connected. You may even try the shotgun approach and solder each of the pins/terminals/legs just as long as you don't cross solder creating a short between pins/legs. If this works, you're set, if not: You have to check with the use of the VOM and determine which of the 3 transistor is defective. If you are familiar checking continuity of base to collector to emitter and reverse, again you're set, if not perhaps you check all three and compare which have the same reading from the same position and which is different. Pls keep in mind the transistors have forward and reverse bias readings. If able to determine defective component, desolder, replace and solder. If it were an IC, replace the entire pack. If the above would make you uncomfortable, pls ask for the services of a qualified TV repair man and explain your problem..." Hope this give too an idea. Good luck and pls post again how things are or if you need further information. Kind regards.

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.

Full screen of vertical colored lines, What do I need to check?


Disconnect from computer and try it on another.
might be a video card issue, disconnexion will show if this is the problem. Does it do this when the computor is off?
If it is not a computer issue then try resetting to factory default.
It might be that the screen is going but this is usually evidenced by loss of picture or darkening rather than vari-colour lines
please amend and resubmit query

Inherited Compaq FS740 but after hooking up monitor will show green for a short time and then color is yellow? Is it dead? Has set up for a while


Check the pins on the cables. Single color presentation but clear picture indicates the pin for a particular color is borken on teh cable. Remember Red Green and Blue are mixed to make other colors. If you have predominantly one color then its due to cable not haveing all pins inserted properly or damaged.

My monitor is not showing the proper colors. Green is showing up as yellow and red is as dark as black. When I unplug my monitor and the check cable message pops up, the red, green, and blue show up...


Do not put your speaker near your monitor and any device that have magnet on it. It will damage your monitor colors. If degaussing it not helps you, you can try to use your speaker. Move again your speaker near your monitor and use its magnet to remove the color scattered on your screen. Check also your cable connections. IT might some pins was skewed up. Don't open your monitor own your own. It's hazardous. It still holds thousands of voltage even not connected to the outlet. Bring it to professional if do you think you can't solve it own your own.

Check the information at Viewsonic's website regarding their warranty:

http://www.viewsonic.com/support/warranties/limited-warranty/

If you have your proof-of-purchase and it shows the monitor is less than a year old, it would be covered. You would need to follow the procedure on their website to have the unit repaired or replaced, but it would not be your job to try to fix it.

Color problem


There are three Cathod Ray guns responsible for the millions of colors.All colors are produced by mixing the three basic colors namely Red Green and Blue (RGB) at suitable proportion. If any one of the three guns fail firing then we get improper colors. This can be rectified by
(1) hitting the monitor at the back by keeping it on a pillow the screen facing down - it will reolve the problem if the failure is due to the loosening of the Head due to repeated thermal expansion and contaction.
(2) check the signal cable for loose connection, twisting etc on both ends - at the back of the CPU and Monitor (it is fixed)
TRY YOUR LUCK

Colors are off after auto adjust


I seem to have found the solution (and the cause, perhaps?) for this problem!

I was having the EXACT same problem with a monitor I'm repairing for a friend. The capacitors on the power supply board were blown (CapXon capacitors, who'd've guessed), which was keeping it from powering up. After replacing the capacitors, the screen worked beautifully. But it had this weird yellow tint!

The strange part was that pure colors - red, green, blue - all appeared perfectly OK on screen. Curiously, the menus would show in the proper colors, except for one: the manual color adjustment menu, which illustrated "Blue" as a sort of off-green in the icon. Auto-Adjust would always fix the colors for a split second, then go back to yellow. Reset didn't fix it. Color reset didn't either. So, exactly the same problem as above.

The solution I found was hidden within the main menu itself, a sort of "easter egg". <b>Hold the Menu button down while pressing Power, and hold it down until the screen, and menu, appear</b>. 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. Voila! PERFECT COLOR! Perhaps this menu was accessed by accident, and calibrated to an incorrect color key. But now my picture works great, and the setting lasts through Auto-Adjusts and Resets!

Hope this helps some people, it sure saved my ****! ;)
