Hi, I have a Philips 170b4bgbs TFT monitor with a colour problem. I do a lot of photo editing but the screen colour is heavily tinted with magenta. I have tried re-setting the colour controls but the magenta stays prominent. Do I need a driver update. My operating system is Vista Home Premium.

Best is to reduce all colour levels and check if the black and white picture is good on the monitor, If this is incorrect then then the hardware sectiion is faulty and colour purity will not be there in any settings. Also once this is corrected the colour tint can be corrected by checking with different shades and then check with landscapes to correct.
Make sure the plugs are hard into the sockets, one loose pin can cause strange colour problems.
A faulty signal cable between PC and monitor can also cause colour problems, try a different cable if possible
Try it on a different computer to find out whether the computer or the monitor is the problem. If it's the monitor and none of the above works, it will need service or replacement. If it's the computer, your video card is likely to be the problem.
Hi this could be your printer aswell, your printer could be printing the colours in darker then it should, or if it is this Screen , then your screen is probably set too bright then it should making everything lighter and brighter Thanks
Check to see if your cable is firmly conected to your computer if it is then use the screen to open its menue and check your color settings. If you can manualy make the screen better it may have failed you. Time for a new one.
There seems to be only one driver for all Operating Systems for this monitor. You can try going into the OSD (On Screen Display) and adjusting the color. You can also check to see if there is an updated video driver for your video card. This may be your problem rather than the monitor.
Here's a link to the Philips Support page for your monitor where you can download the User's Manual and driver. But it seems the driver has not been updated since 2005.
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.
