my laptop screen has a pink tint

The left side of my laptop has a pink tint to it, that just started yesterday. Any idea what it may be, or better yet, how to fix it?

Re: my laptop screen has a pink tint

Pink or red tint means that the CCFL backlight is going bad.

 

Some people can replace the lamp but most people just replace the LCD.

 

Be carefull the CCFL containes mercury.

Re: my laptop screen has a pink tint

I will be bringing it to the shop today. A computer technician believes it may be the cable needs replacing, but will check for other possible problems as well. Thank you
