The issue is with the connection to the monitor from the motherboard. Since it is a laptop, it is harder to troubleshoot and fix. If you know anybody who is good with computers, have them remove the monitor and the shell around the motherboard. Then check and clean the connections from the motherboard to the monitor. Will probably be a ribbon looking cable. Also, try moving the monitor when it changes and see if it goes back.

It sounds as if the culprit here is going to be either the screen itself, or the video card. On a desktop PC, this would be fairly simple to troubleshoot because you could switch out the monitor with one that is known to be working properly. If that did not solve the problem, you would next need to look at your video card. If the computer had onboard video, you could install an aftermarket video card and disable the onboard video.

Unfortunately, with a laptop it isn't quite that simple and you will more than likely have to take the unit to a professional repair service.

This needs to be taken care of by a computer technician, claim warranty support if you can!

Could just be a near severed connection at the hinges of the laptop screen or graphics card needs to be secured adjusted.

Further use may cause excessive damage!

Hi Everytning I print has a very narrow pink line straight down the centre of the page, also every so often the print has a black/yellow/blue/pink thick line running across the page. Thanks


The narrow pink line is coming from your magenta toner/drum cartridge. You may be able to open the from cover and look at the 4 toners. If you look at the magenta (like pink) cartridge, you might see the thin line on the drum surface.
The multicolored band that sometimes shows up on your prints is most likely the transfer belt unit. This is caused by an area of the belt that is not being cleaned very well. This probably tends to show up when you are running mutilple prints of a page.
So it looks like to may need to replace your magenta toner and look at getting a transfer belt unit.

It sounds like a bad inverter. A local service technician should be able to do it for under $100. Here the rate is about $70.

Compaq laptop pink screen sometimes


The normal cause of a pink tinted screen is that the LCD back light is beginning to fail. Kind of like a regular florescent bulb does when it starts to go bad. It may last for a while, but eventually you'll have to replace it.

Screen color becomes pink


Check for any EM interference near your Laptop (eg. Speakers, Cordless, TV, Music Systems, etc) and place your notebook away from them. The pink screen will go away in due course.
