    Hi,

    A mate has a flat screen monitor and for some reason all the colours are buggered.
    SEMrush
    Here is a description of how she sees it.

    "Well.
    Its like...
    A pinky colour.
    And all the other colours are diff.
    Like red is orange.
    Etc.
    Green is black.
    Purple is blue.
    And ive tried the contrast...
    But it wont change.
    At all."

    Whats wrong with it?

    Any fix?

    Tell her to do "auto adjust" if the monitor allows it.

    Also see if her graphic cards are working properly, up to date and functioning.

    How old is the monitor? it could also be because its time to get a new one.

    Does that occur as always or with certain programs?

    The monitor isn't that old.
    I will look into the graphics card & I will tell her to auto adjust it.
    It happens on all the programs.

    I encountered a similar problem with my old LG CRT monitor (It was new that time). There was a sudden change of color with all sorts of hues filling the entire screen when I moved the monitor from one corner to another one (Of course, with care!). Alarmed at this development, I took the monitor in my car to the service center where I was told by the service personnel to simply degauss it. That's all! Everything was okay. In the monitor, press the menu and look for degauss option and activate it. With a simple shrug, the color of the monitor will become normal. Do this and let me know whether your problem is solved :)

    Try it on another PC before declaring it RIP. :)
