I am having problems with my monitor it has a red tinge to it and i cant figure oiut how to fix this
ive tried adjusting color in the menu my speakers never did the magnet thing before this so i am stuck
The magnets in the speakers will not effect the LCD monitor. If it is an LCD the problem in internal to the unit. You need skematics, trouble shooting skills, test equipment to repair this. If your menu can't fix it then your going to need lots of help with this one. Good luck

CRT monitors have three color "guns" in them - Red, Blue, & Green. If one of them is starting to go south you will have a tinge as you describe. To make sure it's the monitor, try connecting a different monitor. If the monitor is the problem, it's not worth fixing. Replace it.
If, after changing the monitor you still have a color tinge, you have a problem with your video device in your PC and you need to have it checked out by a PC Technician.

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: http://www.lesliewong.us/blog/2005/05/02/hp-pavilion-f1703-flat-panel-blackout-solution/ 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
Components assembled in China are rated for 1000 Hrs. and 85C. Using a
Fluke 16 or other Capacitor tester; you will find that the Video Controller has blown SMD Caps. You can get these passive components at Digikey.com.
Be very careful when soldering these in. This will solve
your problem. I also drill several additional holes in the heat shield
and back cover to help dissipate heat from the inverter board. If you
are not technically savy in component testing I would recommend
purchasing a different model /monitor.
This can happen if the minus button which happens to also be the auto image-adjust button is effectively grounded due to some internal fault or
if the switch itself has got jammed internally. In this case, if video signal is present, the motitor reproduces the image but continuously displays "adjusting" as osd message. If video signal is missing, the monitor cycles through solid colors in the black, red, green, blue, white sequence. I think this is part of the hp f1532 design to help the service
engineer( though I have not found any reference to it in official documentation yet). In this special case( minus button grounded), the
menu button is ignored by the monitor.
