Dell i6000 - Pink Screen

\015 Starting a week ago whenever my laptop's LCD would come back from any unpowered state it would have a pink/reddish hue that would gradually fade away to a natural tone.One night, my screen simply lost power and went black. Rebooting yielded similar results -- it'd first turn pink then power off within seconds of booting.Turning the brightness down as low as it can go prevents the LCD from shutting off, but everything is tinted a deep pink (and very dark as I have to keep the brightness low). Turning the brightness back up causes the pink to fade away, but the LCD shuts off shortly after.This has been a great laptop, other than this. I routinely clean it's heatsinks, and it's never given me any trouble.\015

Answers :

The red hue is usually an indication of the CCFL tube (backlight bulb) going bad. These can usually be bought for under $20 but disassembly of the LCD module to replace them can be quite a pain. Fortunately there are are quite a few places that you can send the panel to and have it repaired for around $100.
You are losing video from the motherboard..could be the video chip, yet this sort of thing can happen with laptops.
