Question about Sceptre DCL 7A 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
I have had this monitor for just over a year. The problem that I have is that the display can look fine for a bit and then all of the sudden it changes, colors are off, what was once white is yellowish or green and then it randomally changes back to normal. I use the auto adjust key but it does not fix the problem.
Offhand, it could either be the video interface (most likely) internal to the monitor or the PC's Video Card (least likely). To determine/verify, try using another monitor.
Should it be the video interface, chances are that it is heat related and/or leaky capacitors. The monitor has to be opened up and the internal circuitry checked. This of course would require that you be familiar with electronic circuitry and components, use of a DVM and possibly a soldering iron. Should you be uncomfortable with a DIY, then perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional.
If it were the latter (video card), then it could be a matter of cleaning the pins at the bottom edge of the card with a pencil eraser. Additionally, a clean/new paint paintbrush may be used on the card itself to remove the accumulated dust. Should your PC be using a built-in video, then you would have to do the cleaning on the memory of the PC.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.

1. Please check the signal cable connections; make sure it's tight and secure.
2. Please check if there is any missing / bent pin in the signal cable.
3. Please connect the monitor to a different computer to eliminate a possibility of video card (in your computer) problem.
4. try going into the menu on the monitor to find a degauss option it should work
