Having problems with your Optiquest Computer Monitors ?

My Q19wb keeps turning pink where it shoulod be white. This isn't the first Optiquest monitor that I have known to do this. What can I do to keep it from turning pink? It's very annoying......


Answers :

Usually when you see the pink that means the back lighting is starting to have problems. It can be the bulbs or the power supply. The odd time it can be overheating due to dust buildup on the inside. If it starts and stays pink then you can rule out the dust unfortunately.

\015\012You should check to see if you have any warranty first. Repair costs will be about $80-$150 so you may want to look at replacement costs. Normally I'd look at repairs but Optiquests do not have a good quality reputation and the company itself is pretty miserable to deal with so if the price is close look at a new one (from someone else). It's a shame though as they were one of the best at one time and still have a great picture quality.
Not much you can do. I would recommend just buying a nice affordable general brand LCD monitor. Don't go to best buy or some place that specializes in that, you can get it cheaper at wal mart or k mart. possibly sears or Sam's Club
