Re: color on monitor
Check your cable... see if is loose or pins damaged. If you have a DVI connection, switch to that cable. If the cables if OK...Then you need to replaced a new AD Board. Check out this website @ www.3rd-rocks.com They have the necessary replacement parts for your LCD monitor. Have a nice day!

The most common cause of a red or pnik tint to the picture is a weak or failing backlight tube. LCD monitors use very small florescent tubes to provide the backlight and when they start to go out the output red or pink tinted light not white. You can replace the bulbes but in most cases it is not worth the trouble. You should chack the date on the back of the monitor, if it is less than 3 years old then contact Samsung for a warranty repair, if older than 3 years then get a new monitor.
Try adjusting the color properties of the monitor using the controls located on the front of the monitor.
If you can't correct the color, then it's a problem in the color circuit. As an ex tv repair guy I can tell you it may cost more than the monitor is worth to fix it unless it's still under warranty.
If you have a screen that gets "tints" of various colors on a corner or edge, check that the monitor plugin cable is not near or laying on top of a power cable, the magnetic field around a power cord will cause a monitor to get strange tints or lines in the screen. Option two if the entire screen has a tint equally all over it is possibly the color is out of adjustment or failing - a technician should be able to adjust it internally.
The solution: hidden menu within the main menu itself. Hold the Menu button down while pressing Power to power on, and release power button only when the screen comes up, still holding the menu button. The menu will appear and there will now be a hidden selection, "Auto Color", printed in a red-on-black font at the bottom of the menu. Use the +/- buttons to access it, and press Menu. My green/yellow tint went away! Now my picture works great, and the setting lasts through Auto-Adjusts and Resets!
Unplug the monitor cable from the computer and look into the cable where the metal connector are at. Everytime I've had a problem with one color not showing on the monitor, there has been a bent or flattened pin on the connector. Those pins can be bent out but be VERY carefull, they can break very easily.
Is the cable connected securely? You may need to check your video card also. You may be able to disconnect the cable and get a red, green, blue icon on the screen. If that appears normal then there is nothing wrong with the monitor itself, it may be the cord or the video card.
Make sure your VGA cable is seated properly. If it is seated OK, it could be the start of a problem with a backlight. When a backlight goes bad, it typically shows up as pink/red color where white should be displayed.
