Something is wrong with my monitor. It's a Viewsonic monitor buuuut I have no idea what model number it is, it was second hand. I turned it on this morning to do some work and as I was in the middle of reading a pdf this weird discolouration appeared. My ENTIRE screen has this purple/reddish tint. What. The. Fuck.

I attempted to manually set the colours. No dice. So then I tried tech support online. No dice.

Does anyone know how to correct the problem? Aside from smashing it in with a hammer...

I got a pinkish tint after my laptop screen was replaced. Apparently something had fried. So... yeah.

I tried that first thing. Now I'm thinking it's a bigger problem...

This actually happened to my monitor once a long time ago. My monitor is also a ViewSonic. What basically happened is I'll be typing along happily and suddenly the color just goes pinkish or red.

It basically something loose inside the monitor. I shook the wire a bit and the color went back to normal for a couple days then it went permanently pink.

My dad bascially took the monitor apart and fixed whatever the lose wire was and my monitor a-okay. In fact I'm still using this now and this was about 4 years ago.

So have someone who knows how to take it apart and fix the loose wiring? But there is always the possibility of the monitor dying too.
