Question about Acer AL1916B 19" LCD Monitor

5 Answers

Pink screen I've got my screen for about two years and I've never really had a lot of problems up until now. One day, i turn on my screen, and it is bright pink. First i thought it was a driver problem, but i tried my screen on an other pc and i have the exact same problem. I tried adjusting my colors, but nothing seems to fit. The strange thing is, when i press the auto button, or when i reset my monitor, for a moment, i get the right colors, but then it switches back to pink. Can anybody help me? Thanks

    thanks for the solution 1443, i'll keep that in mind the next time something like that would happen. I do use my screen an awful lot, and it's in a sunny place, so it wouldn't surprise me if it did overheat.
    unfortunately, i already brought my screen to the story i bought it (maybe i would've been able to solve it myself). it got shipped to acer support and there they installed new software on my screen.
    i did have to miss my screen for two weeks, but it didn't cost me anything. apparently there was something wrong with my software.
    the good thing is that not only my screen has its regular colors again, the blur my screen used to have sometimes is gone too (sometimes, it looked like my text was displayed double)

    We have the same problem with our vista computer too. Some times the the screen stays the right color for ten minutes after start up and some times it turns pink as soon as the computer is starterd up. Is this common with vista computers? I heard ads on tv how vista is having problems and complaints about their computers.

A pink screen means you need to replace your backlight folks!

If you're comfortable tearing your case apart:

A backlight is a CCFL tube, it looks like a skinny flourescent tube. It will be right beside the LCD, just buy one the same length and viola! It will look brand new.

If you are NOT comfortable tearing into your monitor DO NOT TRY! A reputable repair person should only charge about $50-$80 tops to do this easy fix.

Open your moniter there is a chip at the end of ur picture-tube. (Be sure that ur moniter power cable is not connected) Resold the chip with tool(If u don't know the tool then don't open it) and it will not turn pink for a week or may be for ever. This problem occours when moniter overheated. Try to keep this cool. Maybe its funny if u use any cooling solution? But u should use. I have done this many times. And this works. First time machanic did it infront of me. And then I did it later when problem occurs again. :D.

Pink and Green Horizontal lines across screen

Normally, horizontal lines on an LCD or LED monitor indicate a bad control board inside the monitor. However, occasionally the problem can be caused by loose or bad cable connections. The only things that you can really do is to disconnect both ends of the monitor cable and reconnect them firmly. Also, you can disconnect the monitor cable completely and just leave the power cable. With only the power cable attached, you can turn the monitor on and off. The monitor should have a "startup screen" or display a message that says something like "Video Cable Disconnected". If the green and pink lines are still present without your computer connected, then the monitor has gone bad. The good news is that Samsung SyncMaster monitors usually carry a 3 year warranty, whereas most monitors only have a 1 year warranty. You may be able to have the monitor replaced at no cost to you if it's less than 3 years old.

I have a Philips LCD monitor - 150S4FB/00B - and for a year or so when i disconnect the power cord i would have problems to switch the monitor on when i reconnect it. I would have to disconnect and...

i will state the obvious first...u have subbed out the power and vga cables make sure that is not the issue? Then of course the power plug internally - those contacts can go if you have been plugging unplugging lots... If apart, you will need to check continuity with a multimeter against the plug holes to the board. Likely requires a spot solder - 400deg silver solder. Also make sure it is not your PC or video card that is loose. Good luck!

My HP w1907 monitor less than a year old is turning pink!

A flickering screen with pink colour is a sign of a CCFL lamp problem.
The CCFL lamp is a mini fluro tube and it provides the back-lighting, it is definitely faulty and about to fail completely.
You need to get it repaired while it is still under warranty.

Laptop LCD goes black after a few seconds


Yes, The pink tint is an indication that the backlight is failing. Now the backlight is basically dead, the best way to get back going is to do an Ebay search for your model laptop and get a new screen. Most screens can be purchased for around $50.00 - $70.00 and they are very easy to swap. Email me if you need more info.

The FPD1975w

Replacing the lcd screen more than likely. Problem in the PCB thats built onto the lcd itself.
They are rather inexpensive these days to replace. I would just buy a new one. Check warranties offered before buying, some manufacturers offer 3 years. ;)

Pink horizontal stripes on my monitor

If youve tried pressing the degaus button on the monitor and the same result then either your graphics driver is corrupt and needs to be updated from the manufacturer web site or the monitor is on it's way out. Try a friends monitor on your system or your monitor on a friends, if it's the same on a friends ststem, it's a belated Xmas present for yourself.
