No picture on acer 19inch monitor

Disconnect all cables including power.
Wait 5 minutes.
Connect ONLY the power cable.
Does it come on?
If not, take it to a shop.
If it comes on the the source cable or video card is the issue.

Contrast is pink. Cannot get it white.

PINK is a mixture of just two of the three "primary" colours.
WHITE is a mixture of all three "primary" colours.

So, your monitor is NOT producing one of those primary colours. or is not producing the right "mix" to get from RED to DUSTY ROSE to PALE ROSE to WHITE colours.

The monitor color is pink...i want it to change to normal color...

Colors on the monitor are produced by mixing the three "primary" colours.
If the monitor is not producing one of those three colours, you can get "pink" instead of "white".
Fix the monitor, or replace the monitor, or replace the video-card (if using a different monitor also produces "pink").

Screen colour suddenly gone wrong colour ie dull and blue tinted, not sure what model number but it is a 19inch 1

It sounds like the video cable plugs are not seated properly or bent pins, please check that out first, also try it with another PC to make sure it is not the PC video card problem.

I hav buyed a new acer v173 lcd monitor,and used upto 10 months till now.Lastday when i switch on my lcd,it showed the Acer logo , and suddenly the color of the screen changed,now the lcd works but i could...

Sounds like a problem with the video board of the monitor. I would contact Acer, since it less than 3 yrs old, tell them the problem that you are having get an RMA number and they will fix it for free. You only have to pay for shipping it back. Hope this helps.

My acer 17 " lcd monitor shows two bright lines (one pink and the other green) on the left side when switched on.

Hi. If you have a video card, try removing and reseating it then see if the lines come back...

It if does, then there's a problem with it and needs either replacement or repair...

My acer X193w+ screen turns pink. What is causing

laurie515, Gee, I hope it's a 'pretty pink' colour. Do you really mean that What was once WHITE or VERY Lite GRAY is now appearing pink??? Laurie515 you must tell us more. How old is this unit? 4-6 yrs? I suspect that the "Cold-Cathode-Fluorescent-Tubes" that are hanging on the rear of the LCD glass panel and provide white light, have over time, now become tired out. YOU WILL NOT FIX IT!! IT WILL ONLY GET WORSE. Here are some options. 1. Trade in for new if yours is >4yrs old. 2. Check for swapout program with ACER? This is only a dim Maybe thing. You send them yours +$50-$100 and they return a refurbished unit. 3. Find local TV/Monitor Repair shop that knows all about LCD monitor repair. there are also guys on fixya that do LCD refurbishing (new ccf tubes/inverter/smps) Do some web searches on LCD monitor failures and also visit youtube for vid clips of monitor disassembly if you want to see the insides of a typical LCD monitor.
Bye for now. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@

Screen goes pink and green starting with a few pixels

Best thing to do, try a different known working monitor to hook up to the computer. If the screen works and doesn't change colors then you know its the original monitor that is bad.

If you hook up the known working monitor and the same problem happens then you know its the video card that is bad and the video card would have to be replaced.
