Last night i moved my monitor (an Acer 17") from one room to another so we could lan. I diddnt drop it or anything on the way there, i set it upside down on the sofa for a second but was gentile the whole time. When I turn it on now the screen has an intense and even green tint. I tried Degaussing and that diddnt do anything. However i found out that if i set the monitor upside down then the green tint goes! Just to be clear, what i mean by upside down is the “legs” or base of the monitor are pointing towards the ceeling, the screen is still facing the user. I checked the pins on the plug and they are fine. I opened it up and diddnt see anything obvious. Im not sure whats wrong with it or what i can do to fix it. Any comments or suggestions would be really great!
As you seem correctly to follow the lines of degaussing which the green tint would be indicative of. Although the upside down solution foxes me. I can only suggest that you try degaussing with an iron, I know it sounds crazy but it has worked for me in the past. Obviously the iron must not be held too close.( About 1’)
I had the same positive experience with the iron. Try it.
The upside-down thing sounds like a connection is bad, but …
BE CAREFUL WHEN OPENING A MONITOR.
I’ve seen a grown man (200+Lbs.) thrown clear across a room (20 feet or more) by touching the back of the tube on a monitor. And the monitor was OFF and UNPLUGGED at the time. Those things retain their charge for hours.
Be very careful if you open it, and it is a bad connection. It might even be a cold solder joint. I dunno, unless you know something about electronics, you can KILL yourself poking around in there!!! So, if you don’t know how to tinker safely, DON’T!!!
