    I also hae the red stripe on left side of monitor, about 1/10 of screen width.

    How to open the case? I did screw off 4 nuts behind stativ holder, but still can not open the case.

    I'm having the same problem. I don't think it's a connection because I have the same discolored set of pixels when there are no video cables connected.

    Same prob with 2" wide pink stripe on dell display. Should I go get a new cord?

    Same problem. Monitor works fine after monitor-restart for 5-6 minutes and then starts flickering and then displays the pink stripe on the left. Rest of the part displays fine.

    I've got a 2 inch wide vertical pink stripe on the right side. I've switched PC's and VGA cables and they didn't make a difference. Living with it!!

I must say thanx to Bogdan, his suggestion really did helped to fix my Dell :D
Only, the hard part was the opening of the case, it has no screws saide the middle behind the holder, but just hidden plastic border pins like on average cheap plastic remote control. After that, and removing few tin shells, second plastic connector ribbon from 10 of them needed a little press by nail and this is it! Thanx again :) I must point out that 2 local dell services said that lcd is unrepairable?!?! But shure, they did not bother to even open the case, or else, I would see the opening marks on plastic.

Hello DaneCooksy, This is most probably a problem with the connector that links the LCD pannel to the display's mainboard. A faulty electric connection at even one single pin can result in pretty spectacular problems.This can occur if the monitor receives mechanical shoks or even just like out of nowhere if the copper contacts become oxidised. This is NOT a dead pixel related problem because the pixel form a matrix made out of 3 transistors for each pixel. If transistors fail in large numbers they will damage a sub-matrix but this will result in a big "+" on your screen not a line. Also it woun't be pink because a "dead" pixel display's only one basic color, eather red,green or blue (RGB) and pink isn't one of them. So, in your case this could be a simple problem with that connector. However please go to a service center to have it diagnosticated. It could also be a graphic data buffer failure on the display's mainboard. My guess is however that your lcd has a minor problem and the repair woun't be expensive. If you need more assistance please reply back.

I have a 2004 F150 supercrew 4x4 and it will not shift into park and when I start it I have to put it into neutral any help Thanks


Sounds like the shift interlock circuit has an issue.

This can be 1 of 3 places

1. The fuse for the Shift Interlock circuit. This is fuse #16

2. The shift interlock switch. This is part of the BPP ( Brake Pedal Position ) Switch that also controls the brake lamps. There are 2 switches in the BPP switch, 1 for the shift interlock, the other the brakes. The circuit in the BPP switch for the shift interlock is the Tan w/ Red stripe wire ( from fuse # 16 ) to Pink w/ Light Green stripe ( to the shift interlock solenoid ).
Test both side of this circuit with a meter ( to ground ) you should have power on the Tan w/ Red stripe wire any time the key is in the Start or Run position.
The Pink w/ Light Green stripe wire should have power any time the brake pedal is pressed down.
If you do not have power at the Pink w/ Light Green stripe wire, you need a new BPP switch.
If you have power with the brake pedal pressed on this wire, you need a new Shift Interlock Solenoid.

Can't get Shifter out of park on a 2005 F150 ford Truck.


If this is a new body style 2004 ( not a heritage or lightning ) did you check fuse #16 ? This is the fuse for the shift interlock switch on the brake pedal.

IF this fuse is good, check the shift interlock section of the brake pedal position ( BPP ) switch ( on the side of the brake pedal lever, usually has a yellow c-clip cover on it ).
The wires for the shift interlock circuit
Fuse #16 to Tan w/ REd stripe wire
Pink w/ light green stripe to the shift interlock solenoid.

If there is power on the Tan w/ REd stripe wire, press the brake pedal down, and check the pink w/ light greens stripe wire for power ( switch is closed when brake pedal is pressed.

If you do not have power on the pink w/ light greens stripe wire, you need a new BPP switch.
If you have power on the pink w/ light greens stripe wire, you need a new shift interlock solenoid.

2" pink stripe


It sounds like it is either the video cable or the video causing this if it is happening on more than one monitor. I would replace the video cable first and test. If it is still doing it you can install the video card in a second computer to test it. Or just replace it.

Need to locate door ajar curcuit on 2002 F150 Super Crew


The door ajar wire is the Black w/ Pinks tripe wire, on the SuperCrew the driver's door is solo, and the other 3 are are in the same input to the GEM.

The passenger's side kick panel ( the plastic that covers the Fuel inertia switch ) is a connector C206, right above C203. There is another smaller looking connector above C206, and some small 2 pin ones shown back there, along with 2 ground lugs in the side of the cab sheet metal.

C206 is a square 16 pin connector, 4 pins by 4 rows.
C203 is also a square 16 pin connector, 4 pins by 4 rows.

The higher of the 2 connectors is the one you want, the Black w/ Pink stripe wire is in the outside column, 2nd to the last from the side farthest from the tab.
Looking at the connector with the tab on the top, the outside column should be ( from tab end ) :
pin #1 : Dark Green w/ Orange Stripe
pin #5 : White w/ Light Green stripe
pin #9 : Black w/ Pink Stripe <- This is the one for all 3 doors
pin #13 : ( bottom ) White w/ Light Blue stripe wire

The connector is numbered on the top row, under the tab ( that is why the pin #s are spaced out reading down the column ).

The wire in the door is in a loom, it is coming from the door latch ( that is where the switch is at ), so it might not be obvious.
It should not be in the connector for the door lock switch ( that is Pink w/ Black stripe wire, not the same ).

Monitor screen with pink line


While I've never seen the stripe be pink, it's not impossible for it to appear that color. Your monitor is bad, and isn't easily or cheaply fixed.

Overall pink cast and pink stipe at top of all images taken.


Never had that camera, however, had the same problem -- the pink stripe and pink cast. Turns out the lens cover was slightly cracked and not opening and closing properly. Thus -- the pink cast.
