Re: Strange PINK colors

The pink tinting is common with a failing back light or back light transformer. Usually easy to fix If you know what you are doing. price depends on size of the monitor and where you buy the parts.

Check the cable going into the back of your monitor and the cable from your monitor into your computer, one of them is most likely loose.

Picture gets blurred and then disappears.

christian204, Your unit may be 5 -6 years old, and may have developed a problem with it's internal "switch-mode-power-supply" and will need good CCFL backlit lcd monitor tech to repair it. When strange and wierd things start to occur on lcd screens the first place to look would be the SMPS. 12fixlouie

Hpvs17e white backround is pink

hucknannie, Power down the pc and monitor. Then disconnect and reconnect the VGA cable a few times to the rear of the pc. then turn system back on and re-boot. If your "PINK" screen still there, then you may need to have unit refurbished with new "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" or have the internal "switch- mode-power supply/ccfl-inverter-supply" inspected and repaired. Yes, before you do anything, visit this web blog about HP monitors!!! Read and make note that people are still visiting the blog even after 4 years!! Hope this response helps.

The screen color is off. It looks yellow, pink

Try changing the connecting cable. You seem to be connecting it with a composite cable which might have loose pins.

Pink Screen

The reason its pink has two possibilities one is that you have a bad cable and needs to be replaced the second and most likely is that the backlight bulb is going out on you and will need to be replaced. When backlights go out things look pinkish reddish and then just go out all together.

White turns to pink on acer laptop

I had the same problem but the white color became cyan.
I "solved" the problem hiting the back of the monitor. I think that is a problem of contacts between the signal of the monitor and the pc.
I have an acer 5610z.

Pink screen

A pink screen means you need to replace your backlight folks!

If you're comfortable tearing your case apart:

A backlight is a CCFL tube, it looks like a skinny flourescent tube. It will be right beside the LCD, just buy one the same length and viola! It will look brand new.

If you are NOT comfortable tearing into your monitor DO NOT TRY! A reputable repair person should only charge about $50-$80 tops to do this easy fix.

LCD Monitor Half Screen Pink

sounds like a color balance issue. Check the menu, do a degauss...and then check for the color temperature (reset for default)..
