You need to check all the pins at both ends of the video cable. Just incase, you should also try i with another PC also.

My screan is gone pink and purple what can i do


Check that the monitor cable is securely connected to the video card. Also restart the computer. Now just as the computer is starting up, is the text pink/purple? If so, it is likely that your monitor has failed. -Ravi Shanghavi

My Q19wb keeps turning pink where it shoulod be white. This isn't the first Optiquest monitor that I have known to do this. What can I do to keep it from turning pink? It's very annoying......


Not much you can do. I would recommend just buying a nice affordable general brand LCD monitor. Don't go to best buy or some place that specializes in that, you can get it cheaper at wal mart or k mart. possibly sears or Sam's Club

Display shakes on monitor


Try these, 1) check the pins on the leads into monitor and computer thy tend to bend,
2) check there is no mains near the cables or monitor, it can cause feed back (EMF)
3) check the graphic card "if fitted " is not lose, unplug computer, then switch on comp without plug in socket, this will purge the board of any electicity, remove graphic card check for dust ect clean and then replace, put plug back in socket and switch on.
4) when a moniter is first switch on it purges the screen "degauses" "maybe spelt wrong" if it is constantly doing this it will be a fault within the screen.
5) Try a different cable that you know works it could be a break in the cable someware.

Westinghouse LCM-22W2 has "ghosting"


Usually, LCD monitor ghosting appears when the cable isn't tight, the cable is faulty, or low quality. The cable should be less than 8-10 feet long. Try using a different monitor cable (they're mostly interchangable) and see if the problem goes away. I'd put my money on the cable or a loose cable connection.
