 For unknown reasons, the G5's screen has a sickly green tint. So my avatar's rose is blue and the grass behind it is yellow. Yeesh. The whole family has taken turns fussing around in the preferences and scratching our heads. What could it be? Anyone have any ideas?

I don't know much about macs, but what about the monitor itself, can you adjust the color properties on the monitor?

It might also be a flaw in the monitor itself.  You may have to have someone fix it, or have it replaced.

This can frequently happen if there is a short on the monitor cable.  Try moving your monitor cable aroudn and see if there is any position where the color returns to normal.

How old is the monitor?  That sounds similar to what I've had happen with monitors that are on their last legs sometimes...

I was afraid of this...it's quite aged, about 6 years old. Although with macs, that isn't really all *that old-my kids still use the 10 yr old imac for games and schoolwork, and it's fine. But the G5 gets much heavier use, and always has. Damn. I hope we don't have to replace it. I don't think it's a cable problem, we've fussed around with all of them to know avail, shut down and rebooted several times.
thanks for your input, everyone.

My TV did something similar a few years ago  - turned out that one of the components ( a capacitor I think) had blown.

My monitor requires periodic smacking on the top or side.  If that doesn't work, I rock it back and whack it into the wall.  Sometimes, I just have to turn it off and let it rest a few hours.  I'm not recommending this fix for everyone, just something that seems to work for me.

Thanks, I needed that.  Oh, the mental images.

By the way, Rose, did you ever get that figured out and/or fixed.

Around here that's called "percussive maintenance." Sometimes administered with the hand (open palm or closed fist), or in severe cases with a blunt instrument (whatever's nearby at the time). :-)

the big machine is in the shop, it needed quite a lot of work done, including a new logic board-but we had one month of warranty left! woot! Hopefully, it will feel all better when it comes home sometime next week. Naturally, the router seems to have died at the same time or we need a new cable or something. So I am on dh's laptop, but only on the super ergonomically incorrect 'puter desk in the LR, where the cable is. So online time is somewhat limited(and quite uncomfortable) now, and I can do zero work. Poop.

Wait for it though, there will be something else happening with this... (bad things always happen in threes...) Wink
