The problem is most likely the power cord if this is an LCD screen. They need a specific amperage and if it is just a little off it will do exactly what it does, powers up and then shuts down. Check specifics on the back of the screen and make sure the power supply matches. I had exactly the sam problem on a monitor, I got the right power supply and fixed the problem.

My montior screen is pink ?


Probably a bad monitor. Could possibly be a loose cable but I doubt it. Try using a different monitor to see if it turns pink a well. If it works then its the monitor. It (the monitor) might just need degaussed (demagnetized). There's a button on it somewhere that you push and it makes a sound like it's lost power for a second then comes back on. You can try it 3-4 times waiting about 5 minutes in between. Try that first then try a different monitor.
Good luck

My new monitor turns on then goes blank after a few seconds.


It sounds like a power issue OR weak signal. If you use an extension cable on your monitor cable this can couse the problem.

Hello Richard.

Make sure that the monitor cables are properly connected when the colors change sometimes is related bacause the connector to the PC is lose (or at the monitor). If the problem persists, try with the power cable.
