    HP 1710 TFT monitor green cast?

    I have just started working at a new school as the ICT co-ordinator and have inherited quite a lot of slightly broken or unused kit. One of the items is an HP 1710 TFT monitor that was warranty replaced by HP, but HP did not want the original sent back (apparently) Anyway, I have tried connecting the monitor to different PCs and it always gives the same green cast when booting up. The cable is standard VGA although the monitor end goes straight into the back of the TFT and cannot be swapped for a normal VGA lead, otherwise I would have tried that. Has anyone experienced this kind of issue before with a similar TFT monitor? Is there anything that can be done? Any help or advice gratefully accepted!

    Many thanks,

    Dinsyboy.

    If you can somehow dismantle the offending item, you could do a simple continuity test along each of the wires on the cable... this would prove whether it is this or not - probably the only fixable part.

    Okay cool - I haven't tried to take it apart yet but have nothing to lose so will give it a go.

    Many thanks.

    In my experience - green means 'sick' and you can't do anything about it.
    On the plus side, I have had a monitor with a green cast working quite happily for about 2 years now

    Could be a broken wire in the plug, I've had that where the towers have been shoved back against a wall so hard the monitor plug gets squished and in tern the wire does and that breaks.

    Also check the pins in the VGA plug, they sometimes get pushed back - causing them to fall short of making a connection with the video port of the system.

    If HP sent a replacement, didn’t replace it and didn’t want the old one the changes are its irreparable or not worth repairing.
