Question about Philips 170B4BG 17 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor
Everything has gone into shades of green on my monitor. in addition the menus and adjustments buttons just result in a few words of chinese which i can only assume translates as " its broken". Red channel appears to still work as the menu box has a red header. have tried reinstalling drivers with no success as xp wont let me. reinstalled graphics card just in case with no change. computer working fine on another monitor so i am a bit stumped! any help / suggestions would be greatly apprieciated
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.
