Red tinting with the Acer LCD monitor AL1916

I have a slight reddish tint to my screen. If I try to auto configurate it, it goes back to normal for a few seconds and then back to the red. There was a recent thunderstorm and I didn't use the computer on that day.

    I did the same thing as drumscansing by mistake . For a while the monitor worked fine. But now the red tint is back ! When I press autoconfig ..the screen shows its default colors for 1-2 sec  then the red tint comes back ... I read a comment that was something like this 'its due to faulty IFB which cannot save colors''

Amazingly enough my monitor did the same thing and while looking for the serial number the problem got resolved. Since I don't know exactly how it got fixed I will tell you what I did. I turned the monitor off, removed the power cord from the unit, turned the surge protector off and back on, placed the monitor face down on my chair to read the serial number, reconnected the power cord and turned the unit back on. The problem was fixed. Go figure.

Most later displays are provided with a driver written by the maker that will allow you to tweak color balance. You should find this by going to the Control Panel, then Display, then Settings, then Advanced. If you have Acer's driver installed (or Windows has had it in its library), there should be a color chart that will allow you to set the color to your satisfaction.

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.

I have an Acer AL1916 monitor and I turned it on like normal yesterday and it has now got a weird green tint all over.. I've gone into the settings of the monitor and played with the red, blue and green...


sounds like a cable problem, can you find another VGA cable to try, look at the cable ends carefully for bent pins.(they are easy to bend by accident) wiggle the blue VGA connector while its on, try both ends, I think when you push the button your pushing on the cable momentarily which causes the monitor to function properly, likely the connector on the back of the monitor. if this helps, please use the thumbs up for feedback. cheers

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.

Normal screen is white background, but lately I am getting a blue tint that clears up sometimes and sometimes not. Please advise


Try hooking up another knowng working monitor to the computer and see if the blue tint comes back intermittently.

If it still comes up then you know your video card is the culprit. If the blue tint goes away then you know the original monitor is bad.

Red tint on Viewsonic P930b


Hello,

We do a lot of LCD monitor repairs and usually when you get the red tinted display it means the backlight tube is going out. This part is like a very small fluorescent tube just like in you office lamps. The tube is part of the display section and is very hard to replace. You can check the power supply first just to be sure. We have a dis-assembly/repair guide on our web site at: www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm If you find any bad capacitors you can change them and check but I would be it is the backlight tubes, if so just replace the monitor.

Monitor screen changes from regular color to a green tinted screen?


Is the cable connected securely? You may need to check your video card also. You may be able to disconnect the cable and get a red, green, blue icon on the screen. If that appears normal then there is nothing wrong with the monitor itself, it may be the cord or the video card.

Hope this helps!

Gateway FPD1960 19" CD has a red tint to all oc screen when I turn it on.


Make sure your VGA cable is seated properly. If it is seated OK, it could be the start of a problem with a backlight. When a backlight goes bad, it typically shows up as pink/red color where white should be displayed.
