I don't know why! It happened while i was working on the computer. I was working, and suddenly the screen flickered and then the blue tint came. I tried shutting down my computer and restarting it... twice. The screen still has that bluish tint to it. I tried the screen's menu, but it didn't work. What is wrong with my screen, and how do i fix it?

Re: Same exact problem
The screen is on it's way out I'm sorry to say. The way you can verify this is to hook the screen up to another computer and check to see if the tint is still there. If it is the phosphors in the monitor have died out and it needs to be replaced. Is it possible that it's still under warranty?

I don't believe that can be repaired on your own. Emerson (Funai Service Corporation) has a 90 day warrantee on labor and 1 year warrantee on parts. Contact them at:
The filter capacitors in the power supply are going bad. This leads to more ripple in the voltage which is why you see the screen flicker. Sometimes the transformers that drive the lights go bad themselves, but generally when that happens you won't have a backlight. Replace the capacitors with the exact same ratings, except you could go up a bit in voltage, and make sure the temperature rating is 105 C or higher. This will stop the flickering.
There are three choices here...bad screen, bad connection, or bad video card, if the card is integrated onto the motherboard, then that part of the motherboard could be bad. If you have access to another monitor or a TV with a vga input, try the computer with another monitor. If you get a signal on that other monitor then you know you either had a bad connection with the other monitor or you lost the screen on the old one. Go back and reseat your video connections with the computer off. Don't ever remove or move cables to the monitor and video with the computer running...the screen can suffer permanent damage. If there is no signal on any monitor, then either you have a bad vga cord or your video graphics card had died.
To determine if he video card is faulty, connect an external monitor to the laptop's external video port, then power up the external monitor and then the laptop. The video info should automaticall switch to the external monitor. If you see anormal Windows image on the monitor then the video card is OK and the fault is with the LCD screen, could be the video cable/connector. Try reseating the video cable/connector to the motherboard.
If the video card is faulty and because it is part of the motherboard it is extremely dificult to repair, usually a replacement motherboard is required. This may not be a cost effective solution depending the age of the laptop. You could remove the hard drive from this laptop and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB drive.
Hi there, have you ever figured out what happened??? the same thing happened to me over the weekend and it's annoying that there's no information at all about anything. I can't figure out what's wrong and your description is EXACTLY what happened to me. One moment everything was great - the next it's dead. Please let me know if you figured it out somehow ??? Thanks
Could be a loose cable inside off the monitor. There is a cable that hooks into the back of the lcd and if that is even loose by a little bit it can make the screen act crazy. If you can get the back cover off of the monitor, try to unseat and reseat that cable to see if the problem goes away.
If you do that and it still exists then the lcd is bad and the whole monitor needs to be replaced.
