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.

Good luck!

Red screen on E152fpc monitor


Hello,

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.

Syncmaster 912n red tint problem


Hello,

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.

I have an Acer AL1916 monitor and I turned it on like normal yesterday and it has now got a weird green tint all over.. I've gone into the settings of the monitor and played with the red, blue and green...


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. cheers

The monitor has now got a blue tint I have checked the lead


Your monitor has a menu system that will allow you to access the color guns so you can adjust the red, blue, green guns that create the color picture.

The blue tint may indicate that you need to adjust teh reg and green to offset OR it may indicate that you have lost the red gun all together.

If this is an older monitor and you are considering repair... cost points say it is cheaper to buy a monitor ~$60 bucks

Press the menu button on your monitor, then use the controls on the monitor to select something like color balance and turn up the red.

My display has a red tint to it


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.

"monitor has a green tint AOpen f2915"


moz-screenshot.png 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!
