Hi,

If LCD screen is PINK only on START and clears later ON, this is not a good news.The backlight in a laptop is a very small fluorescent tube. When it starts to fail or the voltage is dropping it goes a pink to red color. Unfortunately, the fix would be to have the tube changed which is quiet an expensive and difficult job as it is part of the screen. If care is not taken the screen will be damaged during the changeover resulting in an expensive laptop repair. If it is caused by a reduced voltage (which is unusual) then the inverter may needs to be replaced.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Usually, the pink resolution of your LCD upon startup is caused by a bad connection cable. While powering it on, try twisting or tilting the cable itself as if you are looking for the right signal or connection. Please let me know how this goes.

No screen after 5 minutes


Hello,

The picture board on your monitor is bad, since it goes off after few minutes and the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

I would advice you replace the picture board on the monitor, this should cost you between $65 - $85.

Take care.

Asus Monitor boes blank and comes back after power recycle


1. You can see images on the screen for a few minutes. That means there is nothing wrong with your computer.

2. When your screen goes blank, if you disconnect and then reconnect the monitor, it shows fine again for a few minutes before going blank (or dim) again. That means the problem is not with you video card.

3. It always shows the image after reconnection for exactly a few minutes before going blank again. yes? this means that there is nothing wrong with your cable.

Conclusion: Sorry, but you do not have many options. I bleieve that the problem is with your monitor that's going bad. Its far cheaper to get it replaced than to repair it.

Laptop LCD display problem


The backlight is the light bult that illuminates the screen. Before it finally goes out completely it will turn your screen a pink color on startup (and then usually become brighter and the pink fades). It is also possible that the backlight, also called a Cold Cathode Flourescent Light, CCFL, died an immediate death. But usually they take a while and signal with the "PINKNESS" first. If you found that your computer is working just fine connected to an external monitor (and you moved the base of your laptop around while connected to the monitor to be sure and left the computer on for a long time) then you have verified that the screen is the problem. It is usually two things: (1) the inverter, a circuit board that increases the voltage to supply the LCD which eats around 700 volts (yeah baby); or (2) the backlight itself. The first problem is a relatively easy and inexpensive fix. You can find how to replace an inverter by downloading the Hardware Maintenance Manual for the T40, T41, etc., from IBM/Lenovo's site. Replacing the backlight itself, a bulb that is like a strand of speghetti and even more delicate, is a tougher job. I would suggest purchasing a replacement screen in that event rather than replacing the backlight yourself. (The HMM probably does not show you how to replace the backlight/CCFL as it is a potentially dangerous job.) That suggestion assumes you can find a cost-effective replacement screen and do not mind opening the TP and putting the new screen in. At least look at the HMM to see what is involved. Good luck.

LCD Screen going bad?


This set has had a problem with the LVDS cable from the Main PCB to the panel. The wires are delicate and the connection is not that great. Sometimes unplugging and reseating the cable does clear intermitent problems like yours up. Good Luck
