Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Vistron 32 i have a vistron 32" and the problem is after about 15 minutes of the television being switched on, the left half of the screen turns a tint of blue/green and stays like that. if i turn the television off and back on again, the screen returns to normal but not for long. i cant find a contact address for the company i bought it from and even though i bought it through Ebuyer, they are not much help. looks like i have got stung. however, the television still does not work and i wonder if anyone had any ideas as to what is wrong with it and whether imbest either slinging it in the bin or getting it repaired?

I hope this is as simple as making sure there are no speakers or other devices with magnets or tranformers in them next to the TV. When the TV is first turned on there is a demagnetizing coil (degause coil) that comes on and demagnetises the picture tube. If there is a magnet by the TV it will cause the problem you are seeing.

Hi there are two things that could be causing these this. Either your t-con board is bad or your screen is bad. Since screens are so expensive I would replace the T-con board to see if that fixes the problem.

My Vizio has a shaded are on the left portion of the screen that flickers on and off and sometimes on the whole panel. It has a brownish tint to it. What is causing this? I have had it a year and a half.


It's lasted that long! Could the brownish tint be mistaken for pink? Sounds like the lamp(s) in the backlight panel are starting to go. Usually an expensive repair. Get an estimate but may be better to use the repair money on a better brand set. Vizio's have a very high failure rate.

Yellow tint on right half of hdtv screen


The would be due to a faulty inverter that controls how much power is give to the display at a time so when these go out you will see this tint or black. So you can replace the inverter or bring it into a shop and have it replaced.

Here is something that may help from the toshiba.com website under your model number television. Q. Why are people on my screen green?
Models: 32HL17, 37HL17, 42HL17, 42HL167, 47HL167, 52HL167, 42HL167, 42LX177, 46LX177, 52LX177, 57LX177
REF:FAQLCD00107
If the problem is not the connections, try adjusting the tint on your television. A high tint setting will usually create a green
image on the screen where as a low tint will create a more red hue. In order to access your television's tint:
1. Press the “MENU” button on your remote control and use the LEFT or RIGHT arrow keys and select the
VIDEO menu.
2. Then use the UP and DOWN arrow keys to highlight PICTURE SETTINGS and press the "ENTER" button on
your remote.
3. Next use the UP and DOWN arrow keys to highlight TINT then use the LEFT or RIGHT arrow keys to adjust the
TINT. If the picture is too green the tint will need to be lowered.
4. Once you have adjusted the tint to your liking, use the DOWN arrow key to highlight DONE and press ENTER. The toshiba customer service telephone number is : 1-800-631-3811. I hope this helps you with your problem.

Red tint on screen


Good Day,

Try resetting the TV by unplugging from wall outlet for 3 to5 minutes then plug back in. If no fixya take front grill off and panel and adjust the screen controls, turn color off adjust for Black & White Picture. Good Luck, big IRISH.

Green Tint on half of the screen


This is most likely a defect in the optical unit (about $1500.00 part). If out of warranty probably will just have to live with it. Those op units are also hard to get.

Do not put a colour television near a strong magnetic field. I have confirmed from several experts that this has the undesired effect of causing loss of colour
