Red Tint is not functional on my monitor, however when i bring up my monitors menu the icons that have red still have red. So My monitor is still capable of displaying a red tint, but it refuses to do so.

Re: Monitor red tint not functional.
Unplug the monitor cable from the computer and look into the cable where the metal connector are at. Everytime I've had a problem with one color not showing on the monitor, there has been a bent or flattened pin on the connector. Those pins can be bent out but be VERY carefull, they can break very easily.

A red or pink tint on LCD monitor indicates that the CFL backlight bulbs are failing. These are just like the florescent bulbs you use at home and the office but much smaller. When they are about the fail they will have a red tint to the light instead of white. They can be replaced but on a 15" LCD its not worth the price and trouble to do it. The bulbs will run about $35 and then about 1 hour to install if you know what you are doing. It would be better for you to get a replacement monitor.
A red or pink tint on LCD monitors indicate that the back light florescent bulbs are about to go out. Just like on regular florescent these bulbs are just much smaller but burn out just the same. Check the date on the back of your monitor, if it is less than 3 years old then its still under warranty but if its not then its time for a new monitor. The bulbs can be replaced but it really is not worth the trouble.
Have you tried replacing the cable first, I had a similar problem with my monitor(only it was blue tint). I would also check and see if the monitors connections are hooked up properly. I hope i could help.
sounds like a cable problem, can you find another VGA cable to try, look at the cable ends carefully for bent pins.(they are easy to bend by accident) wiggle the blue VGA connector while its on, try both ends, I think when you push the button your pushing on the cable momentarily which causes the monitor to function properly, likely the connector on the back of the monitor.
if this helps, please use the thumbs up for feedback.
Try adjusting the color properties of the monitor using the controls located on the front of the monitor.
If you can't correct the color, then it's a problem in the color circuit. As an ex tv repair guy I can tell you it may cost more than the monitor is worth to fix it unless it's still under warranty.
The solution: a hidden menuwithin the main menu itself. Hold the Menu button down while pressing Power topower on, and release power button only when the screen comes up, still holdingthe menu button. The menu will appear and there will now be a hidden selection,"Auto Color", printed in a red-on-black font at the bottom of themenu. Use the +/- buttons to access it, and press Menu. My green/yellow tintwent away! Now my picture works great, and the setting lasts throughAuto-Adjusts and Resets!
