Try
1. Unplugging the video cord from the back of the computer (and screen if it comes off) and plugging it back in. Sometimes it can become loose and cause a screen to have a abnormal color contrast
2. Updating the drivers to your card
3. Trying a different monitor on the computer. Mind you, if you plug in a differant monitor and the color stays the same. Check the videocards pins on the back of the card. I dont know if you gave all the info on how it became like this, so maybe it got undone and plugged back in forcably and one of them got bent? I
Also if the pigment goes away. Plug the normal one back in and if its gone, great!, if its back. Try the OSD settings on that monitor. Still no luck. The monitor is junk.

Hope that helps

Turned on computer today and my screen is blue green, does not change using monitor buttons?


Sounds like you are using an analog standard VGA cable interface. Since the menu has the correct coloring, it is not the monitors fault. Check the connections of the video cable at each end to ensure they are tight and not kinked. If they are ok, try using a different video cable. If thew problem still exists after that, it is probably the video card in the computer.

Monitor only displays blue color, no red or green


hi there, it may be that the RGB balance has been changed. Try getting a person that knows about monitors to calibrate the colors correctly. Or, connect the computer to a different monitor. If it still displays blue, it's a problem for a expert.

Viewsonic VP930b color problem - Red tint


Go to the setup menu on the LCD panel by pressing button 1 on the front. See if there is an option to reset the lcd to factory settings. Reset it and report if it helps not.

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.
