When you got the new monitor, did you also get a new cable? Most likely the issue is not the monitor but either a bent pin on the cable connector or a bad wire within the cable. Try using a cable from another monitor or borrow a friends to test, before you buy a new one.

PINK Laptop screen

1. Plug in an external monitor to your laptop. If the picture on the external monitor is good, then the problem is your laptop screen. If the external monitor also displays a pink screen, the problem is in your laptop hardware or software.

  • 2 Contact Dell if your computer is still under warranty when the problem is with your screen. If your laptop is not covered by warranty, contact a computer repair shop to have the screen repaired or replaced.
  • 3 Update your drivers and bios. Outdated drivers or bios have been known to cause screen issues. Visit Dell's Drivers and Downloadsicon1.png website where you can enter your service tag and find the appropriate updates for your computer.
  • 4 Contact Dell's technical support team if the above steps do not fix the pink screen. Dell has had known issues with the pink screen being caused by the graphics card on some of their laptopsicon1.png. In many cases, replacing the motherboard is necessary to remedy the problem.

    The screen is pink

    I'm assuming that this a computer screen. If this is the case, try a new or different monitor lead it can be as simple as that. Then try your computer with a different monitor if the lead doesnt' fix the problem. If the screen is still pink with a different monitor you may need to replace your video card. If the different screen is OK on your computer, then it looks like your monitor needs to be either fixed or replaced. Hope this gives you a way forward.

    My SyncMaster 2233 has problem, it has two straight lines, one blue, one pink, across the screen, from top to the bottom. I'd like to know how to get rid of it.

    If the lines are very thin, they are broken pixels. You have to replace the monitor. I've heard of people taking their finger and trying to rub the lines out, but I have never had success with this before.

    The monitor color is pink...i want it to change to normal color...

    Colors on the monitor are produced by mixing the three "primary" colours.
    If the monitor is not producing one of those three colours, you can get "pink" instead of "white".
    Fix the monitor, or replace the monitor, or replace the video-card (if using a different monitor also produces "pink").

    Screen returned from supplier background bright pink, how do I change to white background.

    To check if the video card or the Sharp LCD monitor is faulty, connect a different monitor to the computer. If this monitor displays a normal image then the video card is OK and the Sharp LCD monitor's back-light is faulty. Send it back to the supplier to have it fixed (they should not have reurned it to you in this condition).
    If the other monitor also displays a bright pink background then the video card is faulty and needs to be replaced.

    Screen goes pink and green starting with a few pixels

    Best thing to do, try a different known working monitor to hook up to the computer. If the screen works and doesn't change colors then you know its the original monitor that is bad.

    If you hook up the known working monitor and the same problem happens then you know its the video card that is bad and the video card would have to be replaced.

    Pink Screen

    The reason its pink has two possibilities one is that you have a bad cable and needs to be replaced the second and most likely is that the backlight bulb is going out on you and will need to be replaced. When backlights go out things look pinkish reddish and then just go out all together.

    Monitor screen with pink line

    While I've never seen the stripe be pink, it's not impossible for it to appear that color. Your monitor is bad, and isn't easily or cheaply fixed.

    first check the monitor by pluging in on different source like another pc or laptop and see if pic is still pink if thats the case

    check the vga socket in monitor for pins that are bent or damaged try straighten then with some pointed object and see if it works
