    Hello,
    I have a Gateway M285-E Tablet PC and I have a problem with the display. On startup, the screen has a red tint to it, but it Usually goes away after a few seconds. I've seen so many varied responses to this problem, so I am hoping that you guys can help me get down to the bottom of this. Is it the inverter, screen or what?

    Your help is truly appreciated, and if you need any other information, please let me know!
    Mike

    Note: I have already made sure all my wires for the video are connected properly.

    The red tint is usually a sign that the CCFL backlight tubes are failing.

    Thanks for your reply, but is there any way that I can be sure that this is the problem?
