    i have the same problem. my computer and monitor were working fine.
    i connected the monitor to an old computer to check some files. i then plugged it back into my machine. when i turned it on, the screen was tinted blue.
    however, when the monitor comes on, the menu displays sample colors. these colors all appear (RGB).
    I then plugged the monitor, using the same cable, into a third computer. the monitor displayed everything fine.
    the monitor is a gateway lcd, and uses vga-vga cables (it's a bit old).
    the graphics card on my machine is an integrated nVidia one (128mb). i'm going to try another video card.... any ideas?

    i opsted my problem earlier - more details -

    the boot menu has a blue tint, which leads me to believe it's hardware. i also did a system recovery to factory settings, and the problem persists.

    Even my comp has turned in to tinted blue, i have already checked the cable all appears to be ok, then i just hit the monitor, it first turned into a tint red and then back to normal, I think there seems to be some prob with the monitor itself.

I've found that strange color tints are usually the result of a loose cable connection, either at the computer end of the monitor end.

Try unplugging both ends, and then replugging both nice and securely (might even try reversing the direction of the cable, if it is a simple VGA-VGA cable).

    I can't find a manual for that model, but usually there is a "menu" button on the front that will bring up an on-screen menu. Usually "reset" is an option, along with fine tuning of the three colors.

    Spent a couple of hours on this one! It was a loose cable on the back of my HP Monitor. Way to go! I was messing with settings and drivers and the cable on the laptop - it was the cable on the monitor.

This blue green tint appears when a magnet is close to the monitor. Find devices having a magnet which is close to the desktop. This might be the problem. Take devices having magnets away and i guess things should be fine.

Hi, my monitor is "Samsung SyncMaster 793df". Problem is i can't set right color and contract. how can i solve it?

If the monitor has a consistent tint throughout, try to adjust the color through the OSD (On Screen Display). If this does not resolve the problem, or your monitor seems to be missing a color, disconnect the signal cable from your computer and wait for the No Signal image to appear. If all colors - red, green and blue - are present in the No Signal image, the problem is not with the monitor, but possibly with the video cable or video card. - exert from samsung faq....

If you mean something else, go into a little more detail if you wouldn't mind... Also, another thought has popped to my mind, you do have the drivers for your monitor installed?

Monitor colorization problems

1.) Check to see if the screen has a peel-away, cellophane type shipping protector on it ( transparent with a rose color tint ? ). 2.) Click Start >> Control Panel >> Display >> Settings >> Advanced. If this section has a tab labelled "GAMMA", you can manually adjust all display settings. 3.) If no gamma control is available - download one FREE ( Dark Adapted ) here >>

Prolite e435s iiyama screen


Monitor screens will have color tints when any of pins of the VGA connector is damaged or bent(I assume you are using a 15 pin VGA connection :) ) Please remove the monitor connector cable and check if you have bent or damaged pin at either side of the cable.

If it does not resolves the issue, replace any devices or equipments that may have electro magnetic fields like an UPS from the premises of the monitor.

Also, you can try resetting monitor. All the monitor will have an option for reset in the Menu.

Hope this works!
Good Luck
