Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Veiwsonic VA2026w. Yellow tint down R/h of display.

I purchased the above monitor six months ago. An opaque 2" yellow vertical line began flashing intermittently down the right hand side of the display.

This has now become a permanent addition to enhance my viewing pleasure (not).

I have checked graphic card, re- installed monitor and display drivers, removed any magnetic fields around monitor and even resorted to full virus/malware scans.

With no positive results from this little adventure i have re-installed my O/S and patted my head and rubbed my belly!!

Any Takers???

Which OS are you running?
Try this, after staring your PC press CNTRL-ALT-Delete and go to the processe TAB. Check if you see EHTRAY.EXE running.If so kill it and see if the yellow line disappears. ehtray.exe is part Mediaplayer and runs on startup, sometimes causing strange things.

You can remove it from the registry safely but if youé not familiar with the registry don't do it because 1 error might mess up your PC.

    Check the link in my answer, there are some other files known to cause strange behavior mentioned there.

    One other option, turn the brightness of your monitor all the way down by using the adjusting buttons on the monitor itself, if the yellow line is still there, i'm afraid your monitor has given up on you. If the line disappears, it's most likely a software issue and it should be solvable.

My monitor has a yellow line running down the middle


This is a bad LCD panel. If it is still under warranty, your best bet is to have it replaced again. The only fix is to replace the actual panel and that would cost more than a new monitor.

My Sony SDM N80 screen has turned yellow!


Well, I have 2 of these monitors and one began acting in a similar fashion right before the cable went bad. I acquired a replacement from another person with a broken monitor but I believe this site sells them too (but they aren't cheap).

Monitor displaying yellow tint


Try this. Worked for me immediately, including with PhotoShop

  1. Go to Color Management (in Vista, just click the Windows Orb / Start Search & type in Color Management)
  2. On Devices, select your display (repeat if you have multiple ones... at least I did). e.g., Syncmaster ....
  3. Check the box: Use my settings for this device
  4. Select any and all profiles you have and Remove them.
Check to see if that fixed it. You may need to restart. I didn't have to.
