Re: my wifes dog chewed the cable that is hard wired into...
If it's the screw on type on both ends (I'm assuming it's the video cable), you can unscrew both ends and get another VGA cable (under 10 dollars each). If not, you might want to consider keeping the dog away from cables, it was lucky not to chew on charged wires.

A pink hue indicates a backlight problem, this is caused by a faulty CCFL lamp which will soon fail completely.
For service, parts and DIY info I found a company called LCD Parts very helpful - Use this link to their WEB site :- www.lcdparts.net
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.
That is a dificult task to find a new one, unless you have a broken one you want to take apart they are not a standard cable. Your best bet is to go to an electronics store and buy a new plug to solder onto what is left ofthe cable. To find the pinout, just use a digital multimeter and test the continuity of the pin to the color of wire on the other end. Then just find yourself a VGA extension cable.
Check your cable... see if is loose or pins damaged. If you have a DVI connection, switch to that cable. If the cables if OK...Then you need to replaced a new AD Board. Check out this website @ www.3rd-rocks.com They have the necessary replacement parts for your LCD monitor. Have a nice day!
have you tried to find the manufacturers site, to see if they have a replacement Board.
if not try to locate an electrical repair centre, and get a quote for having the board repaired.
p.s get a metal outer cable, the dog will bust it,s teeth next time :)

Your new LCD is faulty. The band on your old one is the end of it I am affraid.
Laptop LCD's although built to take a beating (or so it seems) are extremely fragile. It only take a very small drop to end their lives.
what color are the ends of the cables, blue you need a vga cable, white a DVI cable- there are two types of dvi cables look at the connector if it has a plus sign in it you need a dual link otherwise a single.
