    So today i got bored and decided to boot up the ol' GC monitor, but something quite odd happened. The screen was abnormally green. So if any A/V techies want to help me out, it would be very appreciated. BTW I posted this in this section of the forums because I think it works with the Wii too.

    information i want: possible solutions, or cause

    what it should look like

    What's the type of connection used - RGB Composite cables or simple Cich (red, white, yellow) cables? Or is it an Euro Scart connector? There's a huge difference between those - if the Video is carried on numerous cables then all it takes for bad output is one cable that's malfunctioning for whatever reason, if the video output is carried on one cable though, it suggests that it's the monitor that's faulty.

    I had this happen to me with my Intec Xbox monitor.
    I think it was loose at the connector or the inside wiring was loose.
    I never knew what the exact problem was because it working fine on it own.
    All I did was unhook it & hook it back up.
    Hopefully, You will be that lucky if you haven't tried that already.

    Foxi4 - Not to answer for fergieboy10 but this monitor actually hooks up directly to the GameCubes video port.
    I think it is basically composite based on the poor resolution of the LCD screen.

    Cool monitor.

    But can you hook it up to some other source, like a PC, and see if it acts the same way?
