The problem could be the vga cable, if the issue is not the cable, try adjusting the color and related settings on the monitor menu.

Is this a LCD or a CRT?

If noting helps the monitor would need to be repaired, if this ia CRT (big tv like display) I would buy a new LCD monitor instead of wasting money on the old display, if you want a replacement CRT display for basic computer stuff you can buy a used display for few dollars off ebay.

also I would check the monitor with another computer and a another monitor with this computer to confirm if the issue is the display or the video adapter in the computer.

Monitor Problems


A pink or red tint indicated that florescent back light bulbs that light up the monitor are going out. When they start to die they out out red or pink light instead of white light like they should. They bulbs are replaceable but not easy for someone not familiar with this type of repair. Parts would run about $30 plus shipping and are available online but it may not be worth the repair on the monitor due to age.

Hi, My monitor will once in awhile go from the warm white color to a slightly red or pinkish color. The monitor is about 5 years old and the model # is AL1913. Any thoughts? Thanks. Don


Red or pinkish cast on the whole screen? You may want to check the VGA connectors and pins at both ends. Also try it with anothe PC to make sure it is not video problem in the PC.

How to change the 'Contrast' and 'Brightness' on the monitor screen


Bootup your computer and display your Windows Desktop. Make sure yourmonitor stays on for at least half an hour before you begin, so that itis properly warmed up.


Seta pure black image on the monitor so you can adjust the brightness. Toget a pure black image, do the following: Choose Start, then ControlPanel, then Display. This will open the Display Properties dialog box.Click the down arrow next to the representation of the desktop color inthe Color field. Choose black from the color palette, then click OK.


Maximizethe Brightness control on your monitor, then slowly reduce it until theblack of the image perfectly matches the black at the edge of thephysical screen. This puts the brightness at the proper setting.


Open a screen with a plain white background soyou can adjust the contrast. One of the best ways to do this is to open aword-processing document without any text in it. Gradually reduce the contrastsetting of your monitor until the white area of the screen begins to lookslightly gray or off-white. Then gradually increase the contrast until thewhite area on your monitor is pure white. This will give you the proper whitebalance. Now you've got your monitor ready for peak performance.

Hope this may help you solve your problem.

My acer Model X221WSD monitor screen is pink. I've tried


Pinkish back ground can be the sign of the lamps are going bad, but usually it will also cause the screen to go into shutdown mode also. Try New VGA cable or move the VGA connectors? Does the same on other PC?
Please post back so we can guide you further toi narrow down the problem.

When an LCD starts getting pinkish to redish hues, the screen is starting to fail. You are in the biggining stages of losing the screen. There is no repair....only replacement.

My viewsonic monitor is fluxuating pinkish to white to pinkish


Hello,

When LCD monitors start turning pink that is an indication that the backlight tubes are failing. Check the date on your monitor most Viewsonic LCD monitors have a 3 year warranty and yours is probably still covered. If it is not then you may want to look for a replacement unit. You can replace the backlight tubes but if you are not a tech it is probably not going to be easy for you to do. If you have questions email me and I will try to help.

Pink Monitor


Hello,

Are the monitor and computer both new or are they used? If the monitor is used then I would bet the problem is the backlight tubes. The backlights in LCD monitors are fluorescent lamps just like in your house or office. When the bulbs get old and about to burn out the output light changes from white to a pinkish color. At this point if your monitor is several years old and you have a pinkish display you need to start looking for a deal on a new unit. It is possible to replace the tubes but it is very hard to do because they are so small and fragile.

I hope this helps.

Monitor colours get pinkish red


The lamps have not failed as you believe Steve. If they fail, then a protection circuit inside will shut them off all together.

Acers have a habit of capacitors failing. This in turn sends dodgy power to the inverter circuit and through to the lamps.

This is not a design flaw, it's just age. Capacitors can die early of course, but it's not common for them to go before the warranty period is up at least. Normally 3-5 years is what you can expect from them.

If you understand electronics then the job will be easy, if not have your local TV tech give it the once over before real damage is done.
