Whole screen has a light blue tint. we've tried adjusting the color on the menu and that didnt help. also, we went into control panel and adjusted color there and that didnt help either


You have either bent pin or the the video connectors are not properly attached to the PC or the monitor. It can also be the video card itself, but check all the pins at both ends of the video cable first.

My screen has gone to a blue tint. What is the life expectancy for a screen?


Blue tint (Red tint, or Green tint) is more likely due to one of the pin on the VGA cable is bent ot the cable is not seated properly of the the video card conectors may be the problem. Try it with another PC and check the pins.
LCD monitors usually fail after about two years due to bad caps.

My whole screen has a blueish green tint


  • 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.

Monitor screen changes from regular color to a green tinted screen?


Looks like you need to purchase a new monitor. If it's too worn out then it's the outcome. I also had the same problem before and I ended up buying a new one. You should not experience that thing if it's new.

Pink tint on Dell 1704FPT Flatpanel LCD


Unfortunately if you have tried a different machine (it could be a bad video card) and tried the cables most likely it is the screen itself. Typically when one of these lcd's begin to fail the pixles no longer access the blue field and you see mostly red instead of the other two colors. In short pink screen is terminal, it will last for a while longer.

Monitor screen changes from regular color to a green tinted screen?


Is the cable connected securely? You may need to check your video card also. You may be able to disconnect the cable and get a red, green, blue icon on the screen. If that appears normal then there is nothing wrong with the monitor itself, it may be the cord or the video card.

Hope this helps!
