I have an eMachines computer and out of the blue today (no pun intended) the screen went to this bluish tint. The colors are all wacked out.
Any ideas as to what is causing this or how to fix it??

Sounds like you are using an analog standard VGA cable interface. Since the menu has the correct coloring, it is not the monitors fault. Check the connections of the video cable at each end to ensure they are tight and not kinked. If they are ok, try using a different video cable. If thew problem still exists after that, it is probably the video card in the computer.
When you get the greenish or bluish tint on your screen, that means the color has gone out on your television. I have been through it two times. Both times the TV was a good quality television. To replace it would be more than $1200. Both times I had my set repaired by a professional. I instructed him to "Not Use" identical replacement parts. I made it a point to insist that the transistors be replaced with higher quality transistors.
Now, I still have both televisions, and I think they are better than they were when I bought them. One has been going 4 years since the repair.
Special Note: Both televisions had the screen/color fail right after the one year warranty went out. I always buy extended warranty now for at least 2 years. If something is going to go wrong, I think it is going to happen within three years.
I have been right, and my warranty coverage paid for the repairs. Either way, I think this plan is better than taking the same risk with another new television set.
The technician told me that companies are using cheap electronics to keep the price down. So if they fail, I just put better parts back into the set.
The screen is on it's way out I'm sorry to say. The way you can verify this is to hook the screen up to another computer and check to see if the tint is still there. If it is the phosphors in the monitor have died out and it needs to be replaced. Is it possible that it's still under warranty?
one thing to look for is the cable from your monitor to your video port remove the cable from the back of the computer and check to make sure there are no bent pins. If possible revovefrom monitor and check thos pins as well
black and white tracking can vary in color depending on which color that the dispay is not getting enough of or to much of. In the case of it changing when you walk
in to the room, sugust that there is probably a loose connection or poor solder joint on the curicut board of the moniter. I don't suggust that you get inside the moniter and try to fix this due to dagerous voltage potential with in the moniter. Good luck
there should be color adjustments in your menu.
also i don't think its the cable if its blue, cuz, if you was miss just blue it would not be blue. and if you had red and green it would not be blue. some video cards have settings to adjust the color in the driver settings or display properties. good luck.
if your monitor has color controls try them,if your monitor has auto adjust try that too.if you can test the monitor on another computer try that as well to verify the monitor is causing the problem.if none of this works its safe to assume that the color control circuitry in the monitor has failed and with todays monitor prices it is cheaper to replace than to repair.
