Not quite, but you are close.  A tint is a shade of color.  It doesn't emit light. 

 

I would just say: With the light emitting from the TV, she can see the papers.

Patty is right ... tints isn't the right adjective for this sentence. Still, I wouldn't drop the notion of an adjective modifying "light" entirely.  "Glints" or "glimmers" of light might be an appropriate choice.
