Monitor is green screen


I'm going to assume this is a conventional tube-type (CRT) monitor since your problem seldom occurs on LCD models.

First, try another monitor if you haven't yet. It's possible the trouble is in the video circuitry of the computer, although this is quite rare. You'll probably find the monitor is at fault.

A picture tube needs to make three colors: red, green and blue. It's possible the transistor or integrated circuit controlling the green output has failed and is turning the green on all the time. This is a problem which can be fixed by replacing the bad part, which is only a couple of dollars (not including repair labor).

But it's also possible the tube itself has gone bad and is causing the green to stay on all the time because of an internal short circuit. In this case, the part needing replacement is the CRT. It's completely uneconomical (and usually impossible) to replace the CRT and set it up properly. The cost of the repair far exceeds what it costs to buy a new LCD monitor now.

In general, it's not worth making any repairs on a CRT monitor unless you can do the work yourself or know someone who can. Even if you can find a shop that repairs them, with labor charges you usually only need to spend a little more to replace one. Now is probably the time.

Mag Innovision LT541s: Green light comes on but no picture now. The picture was very very faint for a day and then it went out completely.


How long have you had this Monitor? If the green light comes on and you don't see any picture, this might be an indication that the picture tube of your Monitor has already failed. This can be fixed by "rejuvenation". It's an old technique and I'm not sure if you have any local technicians who does it in your area.

My dell 4600c monitor will only show a picture when i start or restart it with the monitor power button. it is only on for about 1.5 seconds each time.


If the tower power LED is a Steady Green and the Diagnostic LEDs on the Back are all Green then the monitor itself appears to be the failure point. See if issue occurs with a different monitor. If the tower LEDs are not all green, then reply with the indications

When i turn on my monitor the green light comes on then goes to yellow ... no picture ,just black. what causes this


This light sequence typically means there is no signal coming from the computer. You can verify by trying the monitor on another computer or trying a different monitor that is known to work on this computer.

Dell computer monitor wont come on when I turn


When you turn on most dell monitors they come on with a yellow light, then turn green when the monitor and video source synch. If your light is not turning from yellow to green, your monitor is either dead or not getting a signal from the video source it's plugged into. Verify in your BIOS settings that you have selected to output video through an installed card and not from the motherboard source. If the BIOS settings are correct, your monitor has died. If the light is turning green after you turn the computer on, press the menu button on the monitor and adjust the brightness/contrast until you have a picture. If you don't see anything when the menu button is pressed, then again your monitor is likely dead.

My hp computer wont display picture and makes a beep noise when i turn it on


It should make one beep. That means it passed the self-test.
If there is nothing on the monitor (is the monitor light green or yellow?)
then the monitor is bad.
I suggest you try another monitor to be sure. Borrow one from a friend.

Did you fix your Compaq 1220?


Any time you have a orange light . The monitor or video card can be at fault. First check the monitor. Turn it on and see if it goes from green to amber. Check all monitor cable connections. to make sure the all 15 pins are there . If monitor displays a message that check video signal most likely video card is the problem. Make sure you have the cable connection plugged in the back of the computer into the video card. Usually a picture of a monitor. Then afterwards turn the monitor on first then the computer. If you do the other way around then the video card most likely will not engage.
