When your screen starts to act funny it is most likely a bad part inside of the monitor. Replacement parts are cheap but because of all of the capacitors inside the screen it will cost much more money to repair.
Have you done diagnostics's on the monitor? If not I can see what I can do to help you find the problem. I will give you detailed instructions on how to run diagnostics on your screen if you need.

All The Best,
RCF

It could be one of 2 things.
#1 A broken wire in the cable between the computer and monitor. You will be ale to test this by moving the cable in a circular motion close to the computer and then close to the monitor to see if ti corrects the problem.

#2 A failing CCFL (the light tubes inside the monitor). If this is the case then it's not normally cost effective to have repaired. The part is not expensive, but the repair cost can be high due to the high risk nature of the repair. One slip while doing this operation can cause a complete failure of the physical LCD panel. The driver tabs that connect the panel to the controller baord are extremely fragile.

My screen just went pink. HP pavilion fx70. Is there a life span for this monitor ? Thank you Donna F.


Might be just a loose cable. Double check if the cables are connected properly. Try to plug and unplug.

Pink Screen


Probably the color temperature setting or some other color settings - since you didn't specify your monitor's brand and model, it's hard to guess.
Anyway, most monitors have a "Reset to factory defaults" feature - you may want to make use of this...

I have a single pink line running vertically through my screen. where can I find firm ware? Could this fix it? Thanks westinghouse L2220HW


Hi
I doubt that it would help. I repair 4 -5 monitors a day and I'd love to get ahold of some of the firmware packages. The manufactures don't give these out. What's probably happened is one of the columanar IC's is bad and/or a connection to the IC or screen is bad. Tape it to a reputable service person. Sometimes these can be fixed.

Proview monitor PL926WSi Screen goes out after about 5 seconds


Hello Joe,

A red or pink coloration on the screen indicates bad backlight bulbs. They are just like standard fluorescent bulbs just much smaller. When they start failing they light up with a pink color and that will make the screen look pink or red. You can change them but it may not be worth the trouble. You can do a Google search for compact fluorescent tubes and check prices.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Pink tint on Dell 1704FPT Flatpanel LCD


Unfortunately if you have tried a different machine (it could be a bad video card) and tried the cables most likely it is the screen itself. Typically when one of these lcd's begin to fail the pixles no longer access the blue field and you see mostly red instead of the other two colors. In short pink screen is terminal, it will last for a while longer.

Monitor is Flickering and screen becomes pink


Hi this is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. Power on both CPU and monitor. After it goes back to white, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. I used to check my LCD monitor and could see window image using flashlight and found out that Some of CCFL lamps inside were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.
Thank you,
Tan

Pink screen


A pink screen means you need to replace your backlight folks!

If you're comfortable tearing your case apart:

A backlight is a CCFL tube, it looks like a skinny flourescent tube. It will be right beside the LCD, just buy one the same length and viola! It will look brand new.

If you are NOT comfortable tearing into your monitor DO NOT TRY! A reputable repair person should only charge about $50-$80 tops to do this easy fix.

Gateway FPD 1960-uk 19 " LCD?TFT Monitor keeps going into standby


It sounds like the monitor whose writing comes up in pink has a problem with the RGB usually IC driven and all of them sound like they have faulty power supply boards. Will investigate further and give a more detailed answer. Hope this helps for the time being.

Pink horizontal stripes on my monitor


If youve tried pressing the degaus button on the monitor and the same result then either your graphics driver is corrupt and needs to be updated from the manufacturer web site or the monitor is on it's way out. Try a friends monitor on your system or your monitor on a friends, if it's the same on a friends ststem, it's a belated Xmas present for yourself.
