Dell i6000 - Pink Screen

Starting a week ago whenever my laptop's LCD would come back from any unpowered state it would have a pink/reddish hue that would gradually fade away to a natural tone.

One night, my screen simply lost power and went black. Rebooting yielded similar results -- it'd first turn pink then power off within seconds of booting.

Turning the brightness down as low as it can go prevents the LCD from shutting off, but everything is tinted a deep pink (and very dark as I have to keep the brightness low). Turning the brightness back up causes the pink to fade away, but the LCD shuts off shortly after.

This has been a great laptop, other than this. I routinely clean it's heatsinks, and it's never given me any trouble.

    I have a wallpaper set on my desktop that is mostly white...when I turn the brightness all the way down via (fn + up/down key for brightness) the white will turn a light pinkish color (mostly at the bottom of the screen) ...when I turn the brightness all the way back up it goes away within 10 seconds...about a month ago the backlight in the screen completely failed allowing me to see just barely, to reboot the laptop with the backlight still malfunctioning, and perform a system restore...that seemed to bring the backlight back to working order and it hasn't happened since then, although I do still experience "pink screen" with the brightness level all the way down... what does this mean? That you for your time. --Regards

The red hue is usually an indication of the CCFL tube (backlight bulb) going bad. These can usually be bought for under $20 but disassembly of the LCD module to replace them can be quite a pain. Fortunately there are are quite a few places that you can send the panel to and have it repaired for around $100.

LG E1940S Monitor displays with a pink hue. I am using with a T40 ThinkPad and XP


A pink hue is a sign the CCFL lamp is about to fail.
The CCFL lamp is a fluro like tube approx. 2mm in diameter that is located on the bottom edge of the LCD screen that supplies the back light to the screen.
Replacement CCFL lamp is available from this WEB site.

Dull laptop screen back light


You may have a faulty CCFL lamp. A faulty CCFL lamp may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering and/or with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replace the CCFL lamp.
To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight or a faulty inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp. Usually the CCFL lamp fails before the inverter.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

The laptop starts up with a pink hue


Make sure the LCD is completely attached to the system board. I've had them come partially out and cause this. If this doesn't help, your LCD and/or inverter could be going bad.

Not a typical backlight issue


Hi!

You can check the brightness with AC in the BIOS and match it with running in battery or else, when you plug the ac adapter, the lcd goes dim, press and hold the FN buttong and tap the up arrow then reboot and try to see if it will still do it. But still the best way to do it is going to the BIOS by pressing F2 at the Dell logo startup.

Hope this helps!

Thanks,

Screen goes pink


First, plug a external monitor and toggle the screen to discard configuration or software problems. If the image displays correctly you have a problem either in the LCD screen or its connection cable.
Open the bezel and check for loose or damaged connection cable. Look specially next to the hinge, ON THE LEFT.
In case the problem is not the cable you might have to get a new LCD. You can have replacement parts and instructions here:
