Re: SOS my screen is pink

Sounds like your cable got knocked loose a bit off the computer.  Take the cable that leads from the monitor to the computer off completely and then re-apply.  Only tighten it "hand tight", not "super tight".

Re: SOS my screen is pink

This type of problem are because of the dry joint or the data cable problem. Try to touch the data cable, see the screen is it back to normal or just shoot the monitor see the result. Any more information on repair monitor, please go to . Thanks

Syncmaster 2233 turns pink

There are two possible reasons for the color change that I know about. One is simple to fix: a loose video cable. Check that the cable is correctly and tightly seated to both the monitor and the computer. Try a new cable. (If the cable is permanently connected to the monitor, check the computer side of the connection. The cable screws can tighten the connector to the port.)

The other possibility is that the monitor backlight is failing. There are places that sell replacement backlights ( is one vendor). Unfortunately, you need to take apart the monitor to get the size for the backlights for your monitor. The backlights are usually on the edge sandwiched into the LCD panel and hardware.

I hope this helps.

Samtron 55e computer desktop,monitor screen is pink and then with the blue coded plug that goes in back of tower is on it turns black and then when i take the blue colored coded plug out the screen turns...

Samtron (a former subsidiary of Samsung) as an entity no longer exists, and I have been unable to find any legitimate links to archived support documentation.

The symptoms you describe indicate that the monitor has failed. One way to verify this is to connect another, known good monitor to the same output on your computer. If that other monitor works, then yours does not and it is not the computer's output that is bad.

Looks like time for a new monitor.

Hope that's helpful.

Optiquest monitor screen turned bright pink. How to solve this issue?

First check your cord from the computer to the monitor to make sure the connections are clean and good on the blue vga cord. Plugging it in and out a few times will help clean the pins and holes.
If that is ok: then it may be bulbs.
Pink means that you have bad bulbs inside the screen. sometimes the pink goes away when the bulbs warm up. eventually it won't stay on.
There is a slight chance the power board is also getting weak. You would have to open it up to tell this.
Once partially opened, Disconnect the wide set of wire that goes from the back of the screen to the monitors main video board and then try to turn it on, If it is still bulbs they will really show up with this setup.
If you send me a picture of the power board to, I may be able to tell if the board has issues by looking at the picture of it.

Screen turn into pink (light rise color)

if you have the skill for take off the cover,take off the metal shield and cables until you reach the CRT board,have a 100watt light on,a solder hot iron in one hand and a few rings of tin in the other, obviously take off the plug and left it over a few meters,and waited a few minutes to give some capacitors discharge time,'s easy !!! resolder the joints that like dark,mainly see the big transistors,(or IC)that have like rings on it's pins, and thats all. I tell you its easy okay then you have to "rebuild" your monitor back.

Pink horizontal stripes on my monitor

If youve tried pressing the degaus button on the monitor and the same result then either your graphics driver is corrupt and needs to be updated from the manufacturer web site or the monitor is on it's way out. Try a friends monitor on your system or your monitor on a friends, if it's the same on a friends ststem, it's a belated Xmas present for yourself.
