Mostly likely it is only one of some of the layers that are having an 
issue. So trying, selecting one layer at a time to figure out which 
layer is causing the problem.

Also a "pink screen" sounds like you are using OpenLayers and the pink 
is for a failure to render the image. In FireFox, right click on the 
pink image and select view image this image or copy the image url and 
paste it into a new tab/window and you might get an error message that 
would be helpful.
