Pink may be a register value being changed in the TV's computer. The laptop method is usually the only way to change that. Make sure that you use a goos surge supressor with cable connectors. If the picture is really a Red blob (It could be Blue or Green though.) in the center, it may need a light engine. That is an expensive repair by a qualified tech.

Pink picture dynex tv fix

This is most likely the cable you have connected. I would try that first. If that doesn't work try connection your laptop to another TV. If the new TV gives you the same problem it might be a problem with your graphics card.

I hooked up my Vizio LED LCD to my Philips surround sound and my DVD picture is pink. What do I do?

This sounds like a problem with the component video connection (the red/green/blue cable; sometimes labeled Y,Pb,Pr). You can get a pink screen if the Green (Y) or the Blue (Pb) aren't plugged in correctly. Recheck those first.

My screen on my camera is pink. All pictures are PINK!!!

I seem to remember seeing something about this and I think it was on youtube, though at only 6 months old it should still be covered by the warranty and should be returned to the retailer for repair or replacement and no attempt made to repair it or fiddle around with it.

Fuji Finex 800 camera

If it's pink/purple and "streaky", you have a bad CCD sensor. The only fix is replacement of the sensor. This is the main image capturing sensor in the camera. The situation is well documented on the web. It's usually the end of the camera, unless it's under warranty (or just a little past). Approaching Fuji's repair department can sometimes yield a sympathetic rep who'll have it fixed at no charge to you. If you are on the hook for the repair, expect to drop about $100 US.

I had that problem several times with my Z50, I would cut it off, wait and it would fix itself. Now today, it went POP! Complete loss of video, I have audio. I am off the warranty period. I feel very alone now.

Pink screen

When the "pink screen" happens on my Polaroid FLM-1911 TV, I unplug the power cord from the back of the unit, wait 30 seconds, and replug it. This fixes the problem.

Pink color on projection TV

Okay, I'll give you the easy fix and the permanent fix here. Easy fix - accomplish what those guys do, without the laptop: Turn off the set. Hold down the Menu/Exit button while you turn it on. Release the button a couple seconds after the set comes on. That brings you into the service menu. Hit menu on the remote for more options. Scroll down to Memory Init. Check the box next to that to clear the pink. Then hit exit on the remote to exit the service menu. I'm still looking up some specifics on the permanent fix - I'll get back to you.
