Question about E-Machines eMachines Monitor E15T4

1 Answer

Loss of color/Discoloration

This is really interesting...
If my Monitor is facing west or north, the color is fine...
but if it's facing south (the direction of my bed) the whole screen looses it's color (some green tones and white work, but no oranges or reds).

I took out my video card and am using the onboard video now, but the effect is the same... is my Monitor dead or is there some kind of electro-magnet hidden in my bed??

Please help.

    I purchased a Gateway system from HSN Aug 2006.fortunately it had a 3 year warranty. I just sent in my THIRD monitor back to Gateway. Problem: display flickers, white becomes bluish tint, red turns black, green turns yellow-green, yellow less bright. Have done all known troubleshooting. I asked Gateway if it could be the tower or video card causing this problem. They said 'no.' After hours and hours of hassles, they have agreed each time to replace. But, times changed. couldn't find purchase....etc. etc. etc. Bought out . Policy changes. Now, we must pay shipping to them.....



    Anyway, what is causing this problem?

    Frustrated beyond belief.

Connect your monitor to a different desktop or laptop, to see if the problem "moves" with the monitor.

Connect a different monitor to your computer, to see if the computer's video-card is causing the problem.

My Acer X193W monitor has discoloration, a neon green on the screen wherever the darker colors would have been displayed. Is it dying or just needs adjustment? (Changing the settings to different...


Its dying...as a last resort make sure no magnetic devices such as speakers are near it and look for a reset function...if you can get into settings try turning it off and then turn it on and try again.

The monitor needs to be repaired. The cost of the repair maybe too high. I suggest you get a quote first or gjust et a new LCD monitor.
Do not try to fix it yourself because there are high voltages inside these CRT monitors unless you understand display electronics and the dangers etc.

Dark discoloration around x2gen monitor


Dark spots indicator that the Liquid crystals are not being dispursed properly when the monitor is powered on! That could be a problem! In additon it depends on how old the monitor is as well or how new because nothing is guaranteed! Monitor is going bad!
