    my husband closed the lid on the laptop partially and then completely closed it without shutting down.
    I tried to reboot in safe mode, but it looks the same.

Have you tried the video settings by right-clicking the desktop then properties>settings tab then either manually change colour support or go advanced. If it doesn't budge, try turning off the system, go to safe mode if it still has a problem, try reinstalling your graphics or video drivers.

Did you do anything in particular before this happened?

    how about the video settings have you tried those? I feel that the flex wire connecting the lcd to the board maybe the culprit due to the partial closing... Try closing and opening it several times while it's turned off to see if it worsens or improves, if it does affect the lcd, then the flex wires is the culprit...

Hi, I have an Acer X193W monitor that recently got an update that I guess was from 2008. When I restarted the computer suddenly everything was brighter colorwise. As in Red looked like pink and everything...


you should be able to uses "system restore" to remove the update or to take the computer back to the time before the update. here is a link for a article that will explain it all. if that doesnt work then you can search acers web site for drivers that are compatible with vista. i think you just have a driver issue. in fact, search for the drivers first then use restore if you have to. here is the article.

i just did a quick Google on Acer x193w vista drivers, and found several spots for drivers, here is 1.

When we are printing the printer will not print the right color


try cleaning the heads using the cleaning utiltity on its maintendnce tab, if that doesnt do it, you might have installed non-original laser toner, kindly check also the color settings on what software you use. try also adjusting your screen resolution and color scheme. it could be that what appears on your screen is really not it seems.

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.

Double picture and colors are neon green and pink


Your TV most likely has fone of two possible problems.

Problem #1 - Failure in the convergence circuits. ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem


  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

0dcec37.jpg
Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

0667c5f.pngSOLUTION

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed. Notice how dull the colors are and how white the screen looks. The screen may also look red, orange, dull, etc.

TV set after fluid change. Notice how bright the colors are now. Everthing looks crisp and sharp again.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

Acer aspire one, the color is flashing and changing on the screen


A dull pink color usually means the backlight is going out. You can test this theory by plugging your laptop into an external monitor. If the picture is fine, you know you have a bad LCD on your hands.

They are medium difficulty to replace, and they're widely available on eBay for $100-$200 (USD).

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. I'll monitor this thread.

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.

Faces too pink in my ip6700D


Solution: Manually adjust color from the driver (Windows)

Manual Color Adjustment Follow the steps below to make fine adjustments to the color hue for the printed output. These settings will only make minor color adjustments. If more drastic color adjustment is necessary, use an image editing application.
  1. On the Windows desktop, click 'Start', point to 'Settings', then click 'Printers' (Windows XP: On the Start menu, click 'Printers and Faxes', Windows Vista Click / Select Start from the bottom left of the Windows screen, 'Control Panel', 'Hardware and Sound', and then click on 'Printers'.).

    Note: If you are in 'Classic' view, Click 'Printers' directly from the 'Control Panel'.

  2. Windows 2000/XP/Vista: Right-click the printer icon, then click 'Printing Preferences'. Windows 98/Me: Right-click the printer icon, then click 'Properties'.

  3. On the Main tab, select 'Manual' for 'Color Adjustment.'

  4. On the Manual Color Adjustment screen, adjust each color individually to achieve the desired effect.
