My screen has gone to a blue tint. What is the life expectancy for a screen?


Blue tint (Red tint, or Green tint) is more likely due to one of the pin on the VGA cable is bent ot the cable is not seated properly of the the video card conectors may be the problem. Try it with another PC and check the pins.
LCD monitors usually fail after about two years due to bad caps.

The color on the monitor suddenly has a blue tint that I am not able to change.


have you removed any of the VGA connectors at all ? - have a look on the plugs for a bent pin - quite a common issue on VGA plugs - that even when bent they will still screw into the socket and depending on which pin you can get a colour shift

Check the color settings in the on-screen menu. You can choose between "Warm", "Cool" and "User". Maybe you used the "Warm" setting before and somehow it got changed to "Cool".
If this is not the case, you can try the "User" mode and reduce the intensity of the blue channel.
If even black areas show a blue tint, maybe running an auto configuration from the menu helps.
As a last resort, use the "Reset" menu item which resets all settings to factory defaults.

I use the Optiquest monitor as a dual screen and it has a pink tint to it now. How do I fix?


This could be one of a couple of things.
1. The cable that you are using may be damaged, if so, wiggling it back and forth / tightening the connection / looking for bent pins on the cable and straightening with help to diagnose. Replacing the cable is the best remedy.
2. Check if Internet Explorer 7 or higher has been installed. If start Internet explorer, click tools, internet options, advanced and switch off the "Always use clear type for HTML" option.
3. Check if the red tint is still there when not using in dual screen mode. This will highlight a configuration issue with the dual screen setup.
4. Try a different refresh rate, RGB colour balance, resolution, etc to try and fix the issue.
5. Try the monitor on a different PC.
6. Try a factory reset on the monitor.

Mymonitor is an AOC 1770 CRT, it have a light


make sure you dont have a bent pin on the cable where it plugs in. a bent pin will make different things happen to your colors. if the whole thing is tinted, yellow, or purple it usually is an issue with the plug. also, if you have an old screen plug it in and eliminate the video card as the culprit.

Blue tint


Check the pins on the end of your vga cable from the monitor to make sure that the pins aren't bent.

If they are not bent then it could be a problem with the monitor itself. Try resetting the defaults on the monitor itself and see if the problem goes away if it does then your set.

If the problem still exists then try a different known good working monitor on the computer. If you still get the same problem then its a problem with the video card. If the problem goes away then you know its a problem with the monitor and would need to be replaced.

Blue tint on computer display monitor


Try
1. Unplugging the video cord from the back of the computer (and screen if it comes off) and plugging it back in. Sometimes it can become loose and cause a screen to have a abnormal color contrast
2. Updating the drivers to your card
3. Trying a different monitor on the computer. Mind you, if you plug in a differant monitor and the color stays the same. Check the videocards pins on the back of the card. I dont know if you gave all the info on how it became like this, so maybe it got undone and plugged back in forcably and one of them got bent? I
Also if the pigment goes away. Plug the normal one back in and if its gone, great!, if its back. Try the OSD settings on that monitor. Still no luck. The monitor is junk.

Hope that helps

Is this on a notebook or on your regular PC?The answer will determine what the solution is. You can first check to see if the little pins on the plug are all straight and none are bent or broken. If one of he pins is bent then you can try gently straighten it (unplug the monitor from the wall first) If any of the pins are broken then either the cable needs to be replaced or the monior has to be replaced.
