Question about Compaq TFT5010R 15" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Green haze I turned my tft on this morning only to be presented with a green circle in top left corner of log screen(winXP). Then when I log on it appears that anything blue eg. toolbars have a green pixelated haze to them. Ive tried reconnecting the lead and tightening the plugs. Also tried on a different pc ,still the same. Ive also played about with the colour temp settings, it just seems to shift the haze around.

No photos of screen posted, makes this hard to guess.
carbon dated at 2002 , its 15 years old and the CCFL is not burned out, now that is amazing ! but I bet the CCFL is dim and yellow.
so when that happens all colors are no yellow added.

ok you proved the display is bad. or set wrong (NICE JOB)
did you push the screens menu key and see all those settings inside.?
on the last screen of most hp, OSD screens is a reset.
did you try that, reset to factory setting. do you have the users guide.

or buy a new screen at walmart for $50? (a fraction of cost to fix yours, for sure)

that monitor is old a COMPAQ in fact
1024 x 768 (limited here, and very very poor that)

HP has minimal support , mostly none on this old mon.

the screen is worth $20 working or $5 not.
so why not buy $60 new one.
and the age of high resolution ! then get rid of XP, its a virus magnet.

id do this, id go here and get a far better monitor with LED back lamps that do not go dim or turn yellow.
even free shipping now.

now the fiddling answers, just a few. im reading your manual to you.
ok./ page 14
first is OSD
try the 2 cooler temperatures yet>?
or page 15 the factor RESET?
or the autoadjust button?

SOURCE: Monitor / LCD screen unresponsive to computer.

From what you've told us, It sounds like your LCD screen. The first thing to do is to to beg, borrow or steal a desktop monitor and plug it in to the proper port on the laptop. Turn it on and bring the system up. If this works, you can be pretty sure that you have nailed the problem. Once you've confirmed the problem, you might want to try to open it up to check the LCD cable and connector. Disconnect and reseat the connector and look for any cuts or abrasion on the LCD cable. If these actions don't get the display working, you'll probably need a new LCD. If you need more help on this, just let me know.
By the way, you did a very good job of describing the problem. Kudos to you...

SOURCE: Problem with the monitor


The three boxes represent the built-in diagnostics of the monitor. The letters G is green, B is blue and R is for red, the 3 color guns of the picture tube of your monitor. The words "Self Test" indicates that it is in diagnostic mode since it has powered up, it is also then expecting a video signal from a source to be coming in; the display "Check Your PC And Signal Cable" indicates that it is not receiving any video signal from the source which is your PC or more specifically the PC's video card; and the display "Monitor Working" indicates that the diagnostic has determined that nothing is wrong with itself and therefore it has got to be your PC that is in question. The intermittent appearance of the boxes is when the diagnostics restarts itself and eventually finds the same problem.

To determine if it is the PC or the monitor, use another PC (even a laptop with matching VGA output) and try it with your Compaq monitor, see it it will work or alternately, try a different monitor to connect to your PC. The outcome will determine which is at fault.

If you have determined/verified that it is indeed the PC, you should focus on the video/graphics card. In some PC models/versions, the graphics/video is built-in to the motherboard and you should check the memory since this is shared. The only way is to replace either.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things worked out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: Monitor / LCD screen unresponsive to computer.

Most laptops have vents on the bottom of the laptop and if these are restricted or blocked the CPU will overheat and a thermal shutdown will occur. The laptop will not boot up again until the CPU has cooled down, continual use of the laptop this way will lead to a breakdown of the CPU.
I suggest that the laptop be placed on a hard flat surface on the bed (better still on a desk and your daughter will be in a proper sitting posture position - no good for her back with the laptop in bed) to ensure good air flow to the laptop.

Distorted picture

You have a convergence problem.On this model you can change the convergence amp board which has the convergence IC's on it making it an easy repair.

How do you know if you have a voice mail message

Yes, the was bothering me for some time. I think the indicator is a little green light that blinks in the extreme upper left hand portion of the phone...not on screen, above it....but the blinking light may indicate a missed call or a voice mail is present.

Try this. Go into your phone icon, press and hold '1' and listen to any open messages. Delete each. Next go into your Call Log and delete all call history. Now exit.There should be no green light flashing in the upper left hand corner of phone. You have just cleared everything.

Next call your phone but hang up before leaving a message. Note the blinking green light in the upper left hand corner apparently indicating you missed a call. Go into your Call Log. It will say one missed call. Exit the call log and note that the blinking light is now off. You have acknowleged the call in the call log so the light goes off when you exit.

Call the phone again. This time leave a message. Note the blinking light again. Go into your call log again. Note the missed call. It would be nice if there was an icon or something HERE that indicates if this call left a voice message....but there does not appear to be. Exit again. This time note that the light continues to blink even though you entered the call log and acknowleged the call. I believe it continues to blink because you have a voice message. Exit.

Go into the call log again. Delete the missed call from the call hsitory. Exit. The light still blinks, I believe still indicating a voice message.

Go to your phone icone. Press '1' to check messages, delete the message and exit. The blinking is now gone.

So it appears a blinking green light indicates a missed call. If it still blinks after exiting the call log, you have a voice message.

If someone figures something else out let me know because this stinks!

Lower right corner has green haze

I am not sure what make and model of TV you have, if it is a standard TV then a ground strap holding you CRT imaging tube in pace might need to be deguassed or demagnetised.

green, red, blue blotches on the screen are indications of a magnetic field corrupting the screens electron flow to the image screen.


Pink haze top left hand corner of screen

loose integrator lens/ readjustment is possible, or the lcd for green is contaminated( red + blue mixed gives pink)


Blue/green line left side of the screen top to bottom

I have a green line on the left side of my laptop, can you tell me what is that?

Panasonic PT 47WX53 CinemaVision TV

Green semi-circle of lines on Samsung 55" HDTV (projection)

I believe i have the same problem myself. When my TV is on any of the Component Inputs without my DVD player turned on i usually get the normal green screen. But now that is a dip in the green at the top of the screen from the top left to almost the top right and black pushing down on the dip. Almost like a green curtain was sagging at the top and you can see the black behind it. It does this on every input and distorts every picture you see. The distorted picture has all the green slightly off from where the rest of the picture is and where the dip at the top of the screen is there is somtimes purple instead of black.

I know the basics of how the picture gets onto the screen and its my guess that the Green "gun" for lack of a better term and somhow come loose, or been missaligned to a great extent. I would love to find an answer to this problem, and anyones best guess as to how much a repair man will charge, just so i know the ballpark.

Green dot in middile of my screen

The green dot in the center sounds like a burn mark on one or more of the picture tubes inside the set, and the curved lines are telling me that you have a problem in the convergence circuits. The blue haze around everything white tells me you either have a lot of dust build up on the lens over the CRTs, or your picture tube(s) are very weak. If this set is over about 12 years old, I would replace it. I doubt if you will be able to get the green dot out of the picture without changing the tubes which would be VERY expensive.
