Having problems with your ViewSonic VA2226w 22" Widescreen LCD Monitor ?

I connecetd my viewsonic computer monitor to a laptop trhen returned it to my tower and now there is a pink hue.


Answers :

You can try the auto correct function if your monitor has it, or try messing with the color settings, but this is most likely caused by a faulty connection in the vga cable. It sounds like the wires that carry the data for the green channel are bad. Disconnect the cable and make sure the pins on both ends are not bent. If you're a little more advanced open up the connectors on the ends and verify that the wires are connected, and if they're not, you'll need to solder them back on the connectors. I'm assuming that you can disconnect the cable completely from the monitor, and that it's not attached to the monitor like most CRT's. You can easily find a cable for like $20 in an office store, or get one off the internet for around $5. See link for a diagram of which wires on the connector carry which data.\015\012http://www.tkk.fi/Misc/Electronics/faq/vga2rgb/vga2bnc.gif
A pink hue indicates a backlight problem, this is caused by a faulty CCFL lamp which will soon fail completely.

ViewSonic VX900 was working fine. I was in the midst of shutting down the computer/monitor and the electricity flashed off, then back on. My monitor turned white, I played with trying to get the green power light to come on, but now I have a yellow light on the monitor and it appears black screen and dead. Also, when I push the power button on the monitor, it won't do anything. I unplugged and plugged it back into the battery back-up/surge, but nothing. The Sony Tower seems to come on ok, but it

Occasionally, when I turn on my computer, my Sceptre X9G-NagaIV (Black) 19" LCD Monitor screen has a dark pinkish hue to it. Adjusting the monitor's controls don't help. If I unplug the monitor from the computer and/or power source & then reattach it, the monitor returns to normal. Since this has happened several time in the last 6 months, I'm wondering whether I need to get a new monitor or if it's something that could be easily fixed? Thanks.
