If the colors change intermittently, I would check the CRT socket.Make sure it is seated firmly against the tube. Then check the CRT socket connections which may require re-soldering. If that doesn't help, you could have a bad CRT (internal shorts). Sometimes a CRT rejuvenator can clear these intermittent shorts.

When I turn the monitor on it has a red green blue screen

It would appear that the monitor is not getting a signal from the computer. You should try to power down the monitor and remove the power plug and let it cycle. Also, check the VGA cable connections to make sure they are connected properly.
If this does not cause any change, you can try to connect it to a different computer and/or connect another monitor to the computer you are using this Gateway monitor on if you can do that.

Let's start see if we can get this problem solved.

  1. Please try by reseating the RAM modules.
  2. Please check the VGA output port is properly fixed.
  3. Reset the BIOS to its default.
  4. Check whether the monitor colour resolution is out of range
If yes, set it to default.

Please check whether is works with different computer
IF yes, Check the VGA port.

The Dell AS 501 monitor display comes and goes off in seconds. If I switch off and on again, the display comes back and goes off again in less than a second. I repeat this as many times the same monitor...

This sounds like the power inverter is failed.. It's what pumps up the power for the light in the monitor.
You could try unplug the sound bar from the back of monitor if you have the sound bar installed. Just a maybe..
To fix the inverter (replace) is usually better to buy newmonitor unless you do it your self.
The defective LCD Backlight inverter will cause the following symptoms:
  • No Display, but Power Indicate light stay on green (Or Blue).
  • Screen flash on and off and the power indicate light stays on green (or Blue).
  • Dim Display

17,000 volts inside, and for sure holds charge.

My EV 700 screen picture is condenced has one bright clear line in middle screen and two more lines faded,space in between lines

Sounds like a CRT problem but to be sure, hook up another monitor to the computer and if you get the same exact lines then you know its a problem with the video card, if the lines go away then you know its a problem with the monitor.
