It's my responsibility to let all know my experience with laptop screen turning pink. I know lots of people have the same problem and may benefit from here.
I've a Compaq Presario V2000 3.5 years old. For last 6 months I was getting an unusual problem. The symptoms were:
1. When I start it, the screen is pink (white turns pink). If I tilt the screen more (about 110 degree), its stays pink. If I reduce the angle, the screen becomes normal.
2. After few hours, if I increase the angle, it again turns pink.
3. In between, if I close the lid, the screen is pink when opened.
The pink screen is very annoying, if you have experienced.
I searched many placed for the solution, but all was indicating a bad CCFL bulb. Know the replacement was very tedious; I was preparing to buy one.
But in one forum, someone mentioned a similar problem and one suggested solution was check video cable. I thought of trying once more before jumping into sweaty work.
I opened the lcd and after pulling the video cable in joints, I was sure the video cable went bad. Probably 1 wire was very loosely linked causing the screen to turn normal when connected. Anyway, in the process, I completely ruined the loose link, and now my laptop was always pink. No tilt position was setting it back to normal.
I ordered the video cable from eBay and after replacing it was back on feet again.
