Blue tint to monitor. Spray a little contact cleaner on VGA connector? OK?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm on my E5200 rig right now, which has a 4670 ATI card in it. Sometimes the screen will get a distinct blue tint to it. I have to reach back and jiggle the VGA connector (the end that plugs into the card, not the monitor end) in order to get my whites on the screen white again. I just had to do it again. Both thumb screw thingys are as tight as I care to go. Once jiggled, it is fine again until anything gets moved or bumped.

My questions are: Do you think that the VGA connector could just be dirty and would it be OK to spray a little electrical contact cleaner in there?

Hello.

Have you tried another VGA cable? Perhaps the cable is faulty.

As far as spraying with an approved contact cleaner, that would be fine but ensure you thoroughly clean up any over-spray afterward.

I'll give that a try. I'll have see if someone will loan me one temporarily. All all my other cables I have are DVI and HDMI.
