Forum Question: Screen has a blue tint

I changed the hard drive in my Mac Mini Core 2 Duo 2.0Ghz (T7200) processor and now the screen colors are all messed up. The screen has a blue tent to it. I was very careful to not damage anything and I made the change without any problem. I tried putting the old hard drive back in but I still have the screen color problem. Do you have a suggestion about how to fix or adjust the color.

    My guess is that you knocked a video cable slightly while making the change. It sounds like the connection might be loose. I see a tint chance like this when a DVI cable isn’t seated correctly.

    Before contacting you I had already checked the video cable to make sure that I had not damaged it. I also had checked to make sure that the DVI cable was connected solidly to the unit.

    For future information. I have solved the problem. I was testing the unit before re-assembling the top cover trying to save an extra disassembly if it didn’t work properly. Once I decided to go ahead and reinstalled the top outer cover the color is perfect. I don’t really understand why this should make a difference because I have tested both my 1.42Ghz and my 1.83Ghz mini this way and they worked perfect with the top cover off, but apparently the 2.0Ghz unit will not. Sorry for the bother. Thanks for getting back to me. Hope that this info. might help someone else in the future.
