Usually this is caused by a bad VGA cable. Try wiggling the cable around and see if you can get it to come back to normal. I have one PC right now that I've had to attach a rubber band to to keep the cable in a certain spot so I don't get a tint. Unfortunately, if your VGA cable is built into the monitor, you'll have to replace the monitor but if it's not then you can just purchase a new one and that should solve the whole problem.

If it's not the cable (i.e., you wiggled and twisted it near the computer's plug in and it doesn't change at all) then it's either the monitor itself or the video card. Test the monitor on another computer and see if it does it then reattach it to the original system. If it does then we know it's the monitor.

Check the GPU and motherboard are OK by plugging an external monitor into the VGA socket and then booting. If the external screen is OK, replace the LCD screen.

Basically, there are 2 possibilities:
1. The connection at the back of your screen is lose, so you need to tightened this connection (usually the flex cable's connector),
2. Your laptop screen is dying, so sooner or later, you need to replace your screen.

Hello, I dropped my toshiba satelliet m305-S4910 and the screened change now has a pinkish tint to it. If I move the screen back and forth, it changes back to normal. Is there a way to fix this?


Hi. The flex connection are loosen inside. There is no way to fix this at home.
Unfortunately I had the same issue and I had to sent my computer to the factory for repair.

Red or pinkish cast on the whole screen? You may want to check the VGA connectors and pins at both ends. Also try it with anothe PC to make sure it is not video problem in the PC.

MY LAPTOP WONT GO ON AND THE BATTERY HAS A PINKISH LIGHT


The battery has a pinkish light or the laptop screen has a pinkish light? When the screen has a red or pinkish tint to it, and is black still, it is the LCD inverter that is the problem. The computer and the LCD screen work fine but you need to change the inverter. It happens very often and you can find inverters for your specific laptop online and certainly on eBay.

The color red and especially red colored lines or a pinkish hue are indicative of an impending screen failure. The only other possibility is that the data cable on the left backside of the lcd panel may be loose at the socket or on the motherboard. 9 times out of 10 though, it is the lcd panel that it failing.

I have a samsung2333hd and want to connect a dvd player using the connections marked pr(red) pb(blue) y (green) when i connect them all i get a redish pink screen then when i connect two of them i get...


OK no problem here. I can help. First reconnect the DVD Player to the tv using the Compoment cables. Match Green to Green,Red to Red and Blue to Blue.. If this is done correctly then you will have normal looking picture. If the picture looks like it is missing the RED color then switch both Red cables. The pix should look normal. Then connect the RED and White audio cables to the audio inputs . Now the Pinkish color is a result of the DVD Player not being set to the "Progressive" setting in the DVD Player Menu. It will help to connect a set of COMPOSITE cables from the DVD Player to the TV's Composite Input. Those are the Yellow,Red and White inputs on both the tv and the DVD Player. This will allow you to see the DVD player menu in case you cannot see the menu while in the Component input. The Pinkish picture should go to a Normal picture.
