Question about Computer Monitors
I have an old Philps 170Sa (17 inch flat screen) This was broken as it would not power up so I swapped componets with another same model screen that had a bad scratch on the display. The new monitor made out of the 2 duff ones displays OK but there is a problem with the right hand side. The screen is bisected by a thin Pink line straight down the middle and anything to the right hand side of this is overly red. In the side of the screen any blue is displayed as pink and if the PC is giving now output this side of the screen is pure bright red. Would this be down to the VGA card in the back of the screen or something to do with the backlight.?
PS If it is displaying in white background with black text everything looks OK
such issues have occured in the Past, Please Check if the Crack appears in the BIOS mode.Safemode also Try another Monitor to find out if it is not the wall paper because if it is then the Crack will appear in the other Displa too...

It could be two things.
1. The graphics card is failing.
2. The monitor is exhibiting a defect.
If you have graphics card plugged into your computer, try disconnecting the card and hook your monitor into the built in video port and see if the issue goes away. If it does, then the video card may be failing. If you dont have a seperate video card, then the monitor might be having issues itself. Of course Onboard video can display this behavior too although I have not personally seen it.

This is likely the LCD panel itself - you are describing a left/right image error that can be only created by the left/right division by the LCD driver wrapped around the outside of the LCD panel.
If your monitor uses a separate circuit board to drive the LCD, it could be this driver board.
Either way, it will require an LCD panel - $$$
