    just bought a used 23" cinema display. It came with a reddish COLOR cast. So i complained to the seller who shipped me another one... with the same color cast! I live in 2 different locations, i already use that same screen in one location, this is for the 2nd location. My other display don't have that color cast, i use it with a macbook pro. SO WHAT THIS RED COLOR CAST MEANS? the color cast start 4mm from the edge (so there is a kind of white frame around) and is not uniform; more reddish on the edge, less in the center. Calibration won't help. any comment welcome! Thanks

    Some 23" are known for having a pink hue around the edges. Perhaps this seller just has old bad stock as they don't make the 23" anymore?

    As far as fixing, it will probably not be worth it financially. Try a 3rd monitor or get a 24" from the refurb store for 599 or get a dell U2410.
