I hit a key accidentally and now my monitor has a pink hue> can you help me get it back?

Check the color temp control on monitor. If set for warm picture, that might account for the pink tint you talk about.

LG E1940S Monitor displays with a pink hue. I am using with a T40 ThinkPad and XP

A pink hue is a sign the CCFL lamp is about to fail.
The CCFL lamp is a fluro like tube approx. 2mm in diameter that is located on the bottom edge of the LCD screen that supplies the back light to the screen.
Replacement CCFL lamp is available from this WEB site.

The color is "off" on

ladywoman197, 2 things for you to do. 1. disconnect-reconnect vga cable a few times from the DB15 vga port on the pc. If problem (pink hue) persists then try here: Your unit may need some new capacitors installed on the power supply printed circuit board. Read fixya profiles of "budmrtn" "12fixlouie" and also visit youtube for video clips of lcd monitor repair. Do the vga cable thing first!!! Could also be vga graphics card inside pc not making good contact with monitor cable. 12fixlouie

I added the E196fp to my older dell computer with win 98 from my newer dell with win xp.The whole thing has a pinkish hue to it and is very dark

mklotz, Try looking at the vga connector end and make certain all the brass pins are not bent or broken or recessed down into the connector body housing. If connector ok, then connect, disconnect, reconnect a few times and try to see if the PINK has changed to WHITE. If still PINK, then reseat the video card in pc. If still PINK screen, Then monitor may need to be repaired. CCFL ballast circuit repaired and/or CCFL lamps have too many hours on them and they also will need replacement. Report your findings here with additional info for me. 12fixlouie

Pink Hue on my Princeton Moniter

If you have access to another monitor, check it with your computer. Pink or red hues are usually indicators of a failing backlight bulb or ccfl bulb that sits in the bottom of the display and lights up the lcd.

The laptop starts up with a pink hue

Make sure the LCD is completely attached to the system board. I've had them come partially out and cause this. If this doesn't help, your LCD and/or inverter could be going bad.
