A pinched or loose wire can also lead to "pink screen syndrome," a problem that afflicts some iBooks and Powerbooks.

They're just like us. They need their juice.

Hold on, I had this problem too.
However, as it got worse and worse, it eventually got to the point that the screen got all staticy and grey, and also the music I was listening to got buffered. Is this also due to the plug?

so i just got a mac cpu and i hooked it up to a Gateway 19" monitor and the screen is tented yellow. all the cables are connected properly
so i don't know what to do.

I had the same yellow tinted screen and even my network guy thought it was a virus.

I pulled my hard drive out from the cabinet about one inch and it fixed, so it was just a wire / connection.


Thankyou so so so so much! I did that and it worked!

I am so relieved that it was something simple!

In my case, it seemed to coincide with the installation of a graphics card and a video capture card as well, so naturally I assumed that might have something to do with it. But that was not the case at all!

Seems as if there is a broken wire inside the cable near the connector at the monitor end. The connector is firmly connected to the computer, but when lifting the cable up, caused the monitor to flicker back to white! No more yellowish tinge! So a couple of zip ties later and now it's a permanent fix!

I have been all day working on fixing some other computer issues, so to find a nice simple fix to this I am truly overjoyed! lol!


i had that too

but the OSD of the screen itself is effected :S so how that can b realated with the cable ?

and as u said , it comes back sometimes to its normal color ,

any idea ?
