Question about Televison & Video

We have a pioneer flat screen HD and as of yesterday the only color seen is Green (which is is the dominant color) and blue. Everyones faces is green. Is this simple problem? Would you recommend we get it fixed or just get a new one. This was a $5000.00 TV so I really hope it can be fixed. We purchased it from Best Buy about 41/2 yrs ago. Thank You, Heather

Try a hard reset first - unplug the TV from power source and remove any cables from TV. Wait about an hour or two and redo all cable and plug into power.

Should that not work, the red module has most likely gone kaput. It will have to be replaced. It is a good idea to replace the blue and green ones as well, as generally all three are replaced at the same time. I wouldn't recommend you opening the set and tinkering around if you have no TV repair experience. You will only make things worse if you do not know your way around...There are voltages inside that can KILL even with the power off.

This is an expensive set and not very old. It is worth getting it repaired. Shop around for various prices, or try the Repair Service box on the right of this window. Enter your Zip code and that will throw up a number of repair centers in your area. Just mention you were referred by Fixya, and you may just get a discount :)

Hope that helps! Please don’t forget to "Accept" the solution if it helped you in any way, or leads you to a fix.

Thank you for using FixYa!

Well it could be one of two things, you could have a tube gone out , that would be the red one,,Because tvs are made up of three colors, red ,green, blue,, another thing you could try is ,, check the menu it could be under settings,, its called conversion,, it realines the colors,,a lot of projection tvs have it,,your soposed to do it every now and then ,,or when you move the tv,, but if not , i think its still worth takin it to a tv shop,, because it still works,,fixin it ,,cheaper than a new one ,, well good luck,, let me know if i can be of any assistance,,thanks

Washed out colors dominated by green and purple


There is fault on the chroma section and can be related to the board . Also a proper alignement cannot be ruled out unless the fault is seen in detail and so it is best to seek a consensus and estimate before you proceed , not to tamper unless there is a clear direction from the observation.

Color problem


Did you try alignment of color convergence in setting up. Try this
1 Press MENU
2 Select SET UP
3 Select CONVERGENCE
4 Select screen mode ZOOM this accesses the center convergence adjustment.Press set/enter
5 Use arrow keys to aline the red cross to the white cross.Press set/enter
6 Use arrow keys to alingn the blue line in the same manner. Once adjustment is complete press MENU to turn the menu off.
I hope this helps if you cant move the red or blue lines you face the same problem I face. I still havent gotton any solutions to my post about being unable to adjust the red line.You could also call Pioneer's help line 800-421-1404.
