Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Soyo Monitor MTNIDYLM2286 monitor. It was working fine for 1 year. 4 months ago it lost red and blue color so I replaced the laptop computer connection cord and the color came back. I was away for 3 months and came back yesterday to a green screen again occasionally going to full color and back again. Plugged and unplugged still no red or blue. Is there a fix or do I trash the monitor. Thanks for any help, Brian

You know if it pops back and forth this could be an indication that the video card on your PC may not be doing well. The way to really make sure is plug your monitor into another working computer and see if you have the same issue if not and the monitor works fine you may want to replace the video card for your computer. Monitors are a dime a dozen these days especially CRTs that would be how I would approach this issue. Do not invest in a repair unless it is a flat screen monitor if you are going to pay for a repair at least do it for a flat monitor I have about 23 of them in my garage giving them away they are around. Thanks for using FixYa! John

This monitor has been working fine for 8 months on another machine. I just moved it to another laptop. The mointo works, but is the same size as the laptop, not 19inches. Help


Hi,
You need to alter the resolution settings on your laptop (Control Panel - Display) so they are the same as your 19" monitor.

Gateway GT5058 Geforce 6100 lost red


yes.. Check to make sure your wires are in good working order, check for loose pins, and make sure there aren't any kinks / tears / breaks in the shielding for the monitor cable.

Also, make sure you have the latest drivers for your graphics card, and that someone hasn't tampered with any color settings on the monitor / graphics setting software (nVidia allows me to adjust color for each individual color... i.e. red, green, blue.. )

Also, i have seen times where KVM's have caused the color to be off. even after removing the monitor from the KVM and testing a new monitor on the KVM, after detaching the KVM, and allowing it to reset (1 minute no power) then reconnecting it with all 4 PC's turned off, the issue went away.


To Recap:
1) Make sure monitor settings are at factory default
2) test the monitor on another PC, if good step 3
3) test different monitor on affected PC, if good, step 4
4) be sure your software settings work for your monitor, and all cables are secure, and free of defects such as kinks, broken shielding, broken wires within the shielding, missing / bent / broken / loose coonector pins.

If all abouve test show the monitor is good on one PC, and bad on another, replace your graphics card to see if this solves the problem, if so, your card may be faulty

HP Pavilian external monitor color problem.


The easiest thing would be to check your cable for a bent or loose pin. Next put another external monitor on the laptop. The circuitry to provide video to the laptop screen and the external monitor are separate except that they share a video processor and video memory. There can be bad electronics involved.

ViewSonc VX924 LCD Monitor


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.

24" DOA Soyo Monitor


What size monitor were you using before? If you were using a smaller monitor and everything was fine maybe this new monitor is out of range for the graphics card. I've found that not all graphics cards, especially older ones, will not run a monitor as large as 24 inches. If you can, connect this new 24 inch monitor to a computer with a more powerful graphics card. If it works then you will know that the problem is with your computer. Also connect your old monitor and go into control panel and see what range and resolution your graphics card will support. You may need a more powerful card to run the new monitor.
