    Well not exactly but all my whites have turned to pink? I have a 15" Samsung Syncmaster 570B.
    The monitor is a couple of years old now but I think I know it has something to do with the 'video card' which the VGA lead and power go into.
    As luck would have it I know someone with exactly the same screen and was able to successfully swap the card over and it worked. So I know it's not the screen itself. To back this up, even though the display is discoloured the on screen menu isn't and shows perfect.

    Question is does anyone know if there is a supplier/repairer who can get a replacement card or give advice?

    Thanks

    Sounds like a bad connection of the green part of the signal???

    Thanks for the reply Nigel. I don't think it is my cable though as I am looking at my iiyama monitor right now. Is there any give away clues on the video circuit board to show a damaged/worn component?
