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.

Your lcd screen is bad. It's either the lcd screen or the video card
inside the computer, but most likely the screen. You can isolate the
problem by connecting an external monitor to the computer. Borrow a
monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to
the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok without the read and
green tint then your video card inside the computer is good but your
lcd screen is bad. If the Borrowed monitor displays the same red and
green tint then the video card inside the computer is bad.
It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat
crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga
port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show
on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems
will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down
the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru
F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have
the icon of a display.
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.
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!
