    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.

I need to get rid of the blue tint on all my pictures

Have you checked your camera's white balance setting ? Try setting it to 'Auto' and see if that helps. If not, then there may be a fault in the camera's electronics, which would indicate repair or replacement.

Philips tv's have always had this problem. Between the picture tube and focus lens there is a layer of coolant fluid. The coolant fluid, over time, will break down and turn a brownish cloudy color and it usually starts with the blue. Something to do with the color frequency. Have a good repair shop check it out and if the fluid is the problem have them change all the fluid in all 3 picture tubes (there is a red, green and blue tube). Don't feel bad, like I said all the philips projo's had this problem. Thanks

Picture is clear but with a yellow tint .

Make sure, if your using component cables ,that they match up color for color and are plugged in.If it looks good try adjusting your colors on the TV.You can also try unplugging the TV for 5 min. and then plug it back in.This might be a TV issue.

see if there is a "default" option, if not set everything back to the middle, if the colors are still off you sure its not the convergence?
most big screens allow you to change "color temperature" it's like a default adjustment for 3 different brightness levels.... ie...COOL, WARM picture will show obvious changes in brightness

Take time to get used to the settings, you may think the screen looks dull at first. The truth is most people have way too much contrast on their TVs.
These settings will also work for Cable or Dish hookups, in which case you may change the Noise Reduction option to Medium to reduce signal noise.

White colors schemes seem off white color or brownish color and blue has green tint or baby blue color. .

Check the coolant in all three crt's as chances are it is contaminated (should be crystal clear). If brown (beer color), replace coolant in all three crt's and perform convergence adjust. Picture should be like new!!!

Good Luck!!!

Green tint I can't seem to fix

Hopefully someone on here has a manual and can tell you exactly where the tint controls are. Also need to try adjusting the color level, turn it clear down so you have a black and white picture.
Is the picture still green over the screen with the color control
set clear down to black and white? If it does, you might
have an issue with the green gun going out or problem in the
circuitry to it.

By the way, the best way to adjust the picture settings on a
tv are to first turn the color control clear down, then adjust
brightness and contrast for best black and white picture, then
bring up the color level to where it should be and adjust the
tint for best red/green ratio.
