Moniter has too much red

On the monitor controls (usually accessed through the menu button) there should be options to change the color hue and saturation

The monitor is going down. If I take out the current and put it back then it works but only for a limited (irregular) time then shutting down again

You may have a faulty inverter board or defective CCFL lamp. A faulty CCFL lamp may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering and/or with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers on and off. Usually the CCFL lamp fails before the inverter.
The inverter board can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Pink Hue on my Princeton Moniter

If you have access to another monitor, check it with your computer. Pink or red hues are usually indicators of a failing backlight bulb or ccfl bulb that sits in the bottom of the display and lights up the lcd.

Appearance on monitor is reddish in appearance

Depending on your monitor settings, you should putt all 3 colors on either 0 or 50. whichever is in the middle of the spectrum in your settings. However, when I've seen this problem on monitors, it's been a problem with the cable. Sometimes the cable is tilted, meaning some of the pins aren't connecting. In other cases, missing or bent pins can cause this too. So try to check out both ends of the video cable and adjust it accordingly.

Benq monitor flashes primary colours when switch on or off

This is called burn-in mode. Used to test the monitor at the factory.
To fix this, use the buttons under the front of the monitor,
There are six buttons. Let's number them 1 to 6 from the left.
Press 6 to display menu (at the bottom in Red will say Burn in mode on)
Press 4 or 5 until Recall is highlighted
Press 6 to select
Press 4 or 5 until Recall All is highlighted
Press 6 to select
Press 4 or 5 until Yes is highlighted
Press 6 to select
Press 3 to exit
This will reset all paramaters and also turn-off burn-in mode
If you want to reset some parameters to your preferences, press 6 again to bring up menu and
see you user guide to get explanations for the different settings.

Colors are off after auto adjust

I seem to have found the solution (and the cause, perhaps?) for this problem!

I was having the EXACT same problem with a monitor I'm repairing for a friend. The capacitors on the power supply board were blown (CapXon capacitors, who'd've guessed), which was keeping it from powering up. After replacing the capacitors, the screen worked beautifully. But it had this weird yellow tint!

The strange part was that pure colors - red, green, blue - all appeared perfectly OK on screen. Curiously, the menus would show in the proper colors, except for one: the manual color adjustment menu, which illustrated "Blue" as a sort of off-green in the icon. Auto-Adjust would always fix the colors for a split second, then go back to yellow. Reset didn't fix it. Color reset didn't either. So, exactly the same problem as above.

The solution I found was hidden within the main menu itself, a sort of "easter egg". <b>Hold the Menu button down while pressing Power, and hold it down until the screen, and menu, appear</b>. There will now be a hidden selection, "Auto Color", printed in a red-on-black font at the bottom of the menu. Use the +/- buttons to access it, and press Menu. Voila! PERFECT COLOR! Perhaps this menu was accessed by accident, and calibrated to an incorrect color key. But now my picture works great, and the setting lasts through Auto-Adjusts and Resets!

Hope this helps some people, it sure saved my ****! ;)

Reddishness in the screen

Have you loaded the drivers which came with the monitor. This will probably allow you to change the settings.
Right click on an area of your desktop and choose properties. Look at the monitor and make sure the resolution is set to the recommended level possibily between 60 or 75 dependant on the model. Also you can get to the display card settings here and change them to suit. Dont get carried away or you can make it so that you cant see whats on the screen at all to be able to change it. Could also be that your monitor is faulty. Check with your manufacturer. It its an old telly type monitor maybe one of the "guns" have gone so you dont get the right colour mix of red green and blue. If this is the case you will need to get a new screen.
