Pavilion 22xi display has purple tint on left half

HP Recommended
Pavilion 22xi
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)



As shown in the pictures, the monitor is purple on it's left half. The second image is an up-close of the left side. Every other line of green subpixels is turned off. In addition, on every other line of blue subpixels, only half of the subpixels are on. The image it is supposed to be displaying is all white and is completely accurate in the rightmost 1-2 inches of the display. This is most likely a hardware issue, as it appears across cables, ports, and computers. Additionally, the issue appears in the OSD and "signal not found" message. It went between being normal and purple a couple of times, so it is probably not an issue with the pixels themselves. My guess would be that there is something loose inside the monitor. The error appeared during use, not after first turning the display on. There are also some occasional horizontal flickers, which are the accurate colors, as they are mostly pure white.


Things I have tried:

  • Different cables (DVI only)
  • Unplugging and replugging cables (both computer and monitor ends)
  • Different ports (HDMI, DVI)
  • Different computers (Both windows 10)
  • Factory reset
  • Power cycling both the monitor and computer
  • Gently shaking the monitor
