So I want to use my 2nd monitor with my laptop but when I plug it, it sometimes says no signal or it shows more reddish or blueish. I tried the cable with a spear laptop and it works fine. So I think the problem is with my main laptop's HDMI port. My question is that can a broken/damaged HDMI port damage my monitor?

So can there be a situation that it can?
I think it's possible but probably very rare...

like if the conductors connections got screwed up at the connector....you could send voltage to a terminal on the display that might possibly damage it....but I think the chances of something like this are very slim.

I think most likely...with a broken HDMI jack...it just wouldn't work.
