Monitor screen turned bluish

I just want to share with anyone having this trouble, monitor screen having a bluish tint.

Follow this instruction and see whether it will restore the colors without any bluish, or yellowish, or reddish, etc. tint:

1. Turn off your computer, mine is a desktop.

2. Detach the power cord of your monitor.

3. Start your computer (without power to your monitor).

4. Let the computer complete its start up operation, i.e. when there is no more blinking of some light etc.

5. At his point attach the power cord to the monitor.

6. You should notice that there is no more bluish tint or any other tint on the screen.

If this works for you, let me know:


And say a prayer for me.

Monitor screen turned bluish

I have to tell readers that the bluish tint returned, however I decided to press the button below the monitor for auto configuration and keep it down, and pressed it down repeatedly, keeping it down everytime for some duration, and I noticed that the bluish tint slowly left and the colors returned.

I will continue to post here for further development, in re bluish tint on the screen of monitor (mine).

Monitor screen turned bluish

I am really at a loss, how to stop the bluish tint from the monitor screen.

You see, the bluish tint appeared again, and I tried pressing the button below the monitor which is for auto configuration, but it didn't work this time.

So I went back to turning off the computer, disconnecting the power cord from the monitor, restarting the computer, and connecting the power cord to the monitor, AND the bluish tint disappeared and the colors came back!

I must tell readers that my computer and monitor are surplus merchandise, that means they were already taken out from offices, which replaced them with more updated brand new equipment.

The sellers of these surplus computes and monitors do a favor to folks seeking savings with purchase of computer hardware, they also already pre-loaded operating software and applications - that is another big favor from them.

Anyway, even with brand new equipment and totally legal software, their buyers/uses also have the same problems, like bluish tint on the monitor screen.
