Envision 190L 19" LCD monitor lost 1 color (blue). Suspect bad cable. We narrowed it down to the cable by using a monitor and cable from another computer, plugged it into that computer and it worked fine. We took the Envision monitor to another computer and experienced the same problem. We think we need to replace the cable because the blue works fine on the envision set up but not on the monitor. The cable is a 15 pin Sub D and we don't know how to disconnect the old one from the monitor and replace it with a new. How do we replace the cable?

Look in the plug end and make sure the pins are straight. If the cable is hard wired into the monitor, it has to be disassembled. Plus you won't know until it's apart how the wires are attached. It's not a project for a beginner

Are you sure there isn't a plug on the monitor end?

Pins are fine. It is hard wired which is the problem. Have been unable to open the monitor casing to gain access and was wondering if any knew how take it apart. Thanks for your comments.

With the problem you describe, if the pins are OK and the cord is intact, I suspect something more. Screws might be hidden under labels or visible through the vent holes. It's very possible the screw heads will be none-standard. It also might snap together along the seams, making it impossible to take it apart without doing any damage

Thank you for your help. Will check it out in the areas you mentioned. The monitor is 30 days out of warranty and don't know if it is worth taking it in for repair. If the cable was a plug in would be an easy fix! Thanks again.
