How to Get Rid of Blue Tint Computer Screen

I've had this annoyance happen a number of times with the ATI Catalyst graphic cards on Windows Vista, and tend to forget how to fix it, so I'm parking this blog here, and hope it will show up in Google searches for people also suffering from this annoyance who can't seem to get any of those geek squad sites to answer or fix this common problem.

Once again, this is a solution I found for ATI Catalyst graphic cards on Windows Vista. Not other systems. Not other graphic cards. This is not a help desk. This is a blog. If you don't have this system and this graphic card, keep looking. And find a geek help site, this is just a blog. Did I mention that this is for ATI Catalyst graphic cards on Windows Vista? Let's hope by repeating this and bolding it, I will fix the problem of people continuing to ask for other answers.

It's likely rooted in the graphics card problem or maybe even the monitor, but here's what it is:

All of a sudden, your screen tints blue. This isn't "the blue screen of death," but a blue coloured tint that makes everything then purple if it is red, etc. -- and it becomes impossible on your eyes. Second Life becomes impossible to see, etc.

You try going into the display settings to see if the colour tints are off -- nothing works there.

You get the latest driver -- in this case HD ATI Radeon 5700 just got a new driver 7/17 -- and yes, if you buy your computers at Best Buy like I do, and aren't a geek buying parts on Newegg and assembling it all yourself, that's the card you got if you got your computer a year ago.

But that new driver does nothing to solve the blue tinting.

So you check cables, turn off, turn on, take out cables, make sure they are all in place, blow on everything, etc. etc. Nothing makes it change.

So you go to the settings for the monitor -- those impossible menus with the interface where you have to keep plussing and minusing and pushing and getting it wrong and going up and down menus -- really, the dumbest interface there is -- but nothing helps there.

OK, let me help.

This is if you have a PC, of course, we aren't geeks and we don't get Macs.

So you right-click on your desk top and go to PERSONALIZE on the menu -- this is on Windows Vista. You ignore things like colour or changing the colour of Windows -- that won't help.

Go to the bottom, to DISPLAY SETTINGS.

On your first screen, go to ADVANCED SETTINGS.

On your next screen, go to the top to AMD VISION ENGINE CONTROL CENTER.

Truly, ignore all that other stuff that sounds like it might help like "Colour management". Ignore what geeks tell you everywhere which is to change the refresh rate -- you may find you *can't* do that or if you hack out of it to change it will harm your monitor. Ignore.

Next go to the bar at the middle of the page and click again on the AMD VISION CONTROL CENTER.

You get a menu with war game stuff on it.

Over on your left in the middle go to MY VGA DISPLAYS

Select IMAGE ADJUSTMENTS (VGA DISPLAY)

You will see that the little picture of your desktop with a grid over it with arrows is blue/purple.

So grab the arrows or click on the plus or minus as indicated and push it a bit up or down or sideways and watch it turn orange/red -- then it is usually back to normal, you will see pages as white again, the desk top will lose its tint. Yay!

You may have to fuss here a bit, it can take some doing to grab it right and get it back to normal without the tint.

Be sure to click OK on the other screen before that and exit.

My picture has broken into colour ghosting (it looks like a 3d picture without the glasses on). I'm guessing that this might be the failure of one of the colour bulbs. The wavey colour bands that I see are...


Please do us a favor and rate this solution after reading.

Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....


  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

My sony grand wega gives a blue shade on the black background which is the problem


HI, Check the menu set up of the TV. There should be an alignment feature that aligns the blue, red, and green colour projectors. If the blue is out of alignment that is likely why you can see it on the dark backgrounds. The set up normally puts a white cross on the screen and you select each of these colours and then move the cross over the white on with the arrows on your remote. Once all are aligned correctly you shouldn't be able to distinguish between different colours and hopefully this should get rid of your blue shade.

Pink colour everywhere


Assuming all power supplies are OK, you most likely have a bad CRT grid, and that respective (red) tube must be replaced. I'm sorry that it went that way, as this repair is not cheap....accordianman

Screen all blue


Try looking into the blue CRT lens while its on and see if the coolant has congealed. You will be able to tell if it has bacteria growing as this can cause the blue to be unresposive and make your screen have a blue haze. The coolant will need changing if this is congealed with bacteria. This is a common problem in all projection tvs blue and green are more prone to this sympton red is not.

Blue Tint


Most likely cause would be a loose solder connection that expands as the set warms up until it no longer makes a connection. You may get the blue to come and go by hitting the side of the cabinet after the set is warmed up awhile. (don't hurt your hand doing this, and don't keep doing it to "fix" the set. The connection will have to be located and repaired). Otherwise, there could be a component going bad, including the blue picture tube.
