Hi there I seem to be having trouble getting the right colours on my screen, they seem way to blown out in pinks and reds. Is there a free way of correcting this? Thanks

If the pink/red coloration is on a dim (darkened) screen, then I would say your Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp (CCFL) is going out. About a $15.00 part but tricky to install. You might want to pay for a technician. Or, if you think your able to do it, follow this link to an example instruction. These instructions are on a laptop screen, but the same principles apply. CLICK HERE.

If the screen is very bright and just the colors are bothering your, then I would says it's just a HUE adjustment on the monitor.
Here is a link to Samsung 226BW Support.

Contrast is pink. Cannot get it white.


PINK is a mixture of just two of the three "primary" colours.
WHITE is a mixture of all three "primary" colours.

So, your monitor is NOT producing one of those primary colours. or is not producing the right "mix" to get from RED to DUSTY ROSE to PALE ROSE to WHITE colours.

The screen is bad.... They do not like being dripped. At this point, I would run an external monitor for color. A new screen will be roughly $300 or so.

Toshiba Satellite L35 screen color turned to pink.


If you have a LCD-screen, not an old-style CRT-screen, it is the data-cable, and its connections, that are not transmitting one of the 3 "primary" colours, e.g., mix red & blue & green to get white,
but mix only two of those colours, and you could get pink,
because the mixing is an "additive" process.

If you mix NONE of the 3 primary colours, you should get BLACK.
If you see GREEN, you're seeing ONE of the primary colours.

I bought new ink black and color but i try to print in pink and i can't how can i print in pink


Hi alexgallo01
Do you get other colours except pink?
If that is the case,reasons could be:
1. there is not enough RED or BLUE in the cartridge.
2. you haven't selected pink colour on the text or images you are trying to print.
If you are typing a document highlight the text you want in pink, and choose PINK color for the font.
Then print the document. The printer will use color closest to your choice, if it does not have the exact color.
Hope this will help.
If it help you, please give a rating
Cheers

I recently installed new black ink cartridge. Since doing so, the colors on anything printed are incorrect. For instance, anything red prints as pink. Anything deep yellow prints as a gold. MY...


Hi maryryherd - yes the C64 is in the list - don't know why you couldn't see it.

The inkjet colour system can be quite confusing. The colours in the cartridges are cyan, magenta and yellow, plus black. Other colours require a mixture of these basic ones. For example, to produce "red" requires a mixture of magenta and yellow. Your problem sounds like you are getting insufficient yellow, and maybe insufficient black.

Have you tried a cleaning cycle? If not, try one (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select head clean). Now run a nozzle check (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select nozzle check). Are all the 3 colour bands plus black printed OK. If not, try up to three cleaning cycles. If ink is now flowing pretty well, but not yet perfectly, don't carry out any more cleaning cycles. Just leave the printer for 24 hours (to allow any air in the print head to disperse). Then repeat the cleaning cycle/wait process. It may take a while to restore a perfect nozzle check print. If these actions produce no positive results, report back with a new comment.

Pink colour everywhere


Assuming all power supplies are OK, you most likely have a bad CRT grid, and that respective (red) tube must be replaced. I'm sorry that it went that way, as this repair is not cheap....accordianman

Sounds like your red gun may be shorted, Try adjusting the red gun down a little see it that helps.You can also switch the blur CRT socket for the red if your screen is still mostly pink then you know for sure its your red tube that needs replacement. If its mostly blue then you have a problem in the red drive circuit.
