TheSmJ said:You sure? Check Color/sRGB tab/ and select "Color Return". Keep in mind it may say "Available after warmup", and be unselectable untill the message goes away.
Element said:Hello, I found this thread to be very helpful as I too have this monitor. I dont have a problem with it being too bright. My problem is that I get a shadow to the right of everything on screen. It is not the Convergence settings because the shadow has no color. Is there a controller inside the monitor that will adjust this? Or is this some signs of old age which can not be repaired? Also, how do I remove the cover from the back of the monitor. Thanks for your help :)
Element said:great infomation partipilo. I hope this cable works for me too. :)
TheSmJ said:Darker. The higher the resistance, the brighter the picture.
Element said:Enverex your problem is most likely the cable you are using. Get the vga cable that is posted on page 3 of this thread. What you are expiriencing is most likely a shadow caused by your monitor cable and not the convergence settings. I had the same shadow and the cable posted in this thread fixed my shadowing. It is a high quality svga cable and VERY cheap as well. :)

Don Froula said: Did you do this with a Dell Brand P1110? I tried this with mine and couldn't get into the service mode....Does anyone here have the Dell brand and has gotten into the service mode? Can you please detail how to do it step by step?
Enverex said:I have a Dell P1110, also can't get into this special mode.
gravix said:The brightness on my monitor still goes down after it's had a chance to "warm up", so make sure you take that into account when you calibrate if yours does also.
TheSmJ said:P.S.: "Colour", Thrax? What the hell are they teaching you over there at EMU?
darkscion0 said:After I put the 5.6M resistor on the monitor, it was really dark, but now the monitor is fairly light again. The weird thing is, that my brightness controls are backwards now. When I turn down the brightness, the monitor gets brighter? Any ideas?---More details on my funky brightness controls. When you turn it up from 0 to 30 it gets brighter, then after that, the more you turn it up the darker it gets.Any help would be appreciated.
thewick said:I recently repaired my year 2000 Sony G500 by adding a 10MOhm resistor, and it worked great. The picture looks great, but I have the same situation where the brightness controls are funky, same as darkscion0's scenario. If I leave it at around 50 brightness, it looks great, but I'd really like to know if there is a way to get the brightness control working like it used to.
john chiodo said:Hello,I have a question about the "image restoration" in easy or sRGB mode. WhenI select either of these the screen cycles thru bunch of colors mostly shades of white and the then the screen goes black and the light flashes. I then have to power cycle it, even after waiting 15 minutes. Is this normal?
gravix said:No. On my monitor, image restoration takes about 30 seconds, and then returns to the VGA picture. Sounds like yours has even more problems! Sorry... :(
