Question about Mitsubishi LT-3020 30 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Color problem The blue colors on Component 2 go from deep blue to emerald green. This occurs approximately 1 hour after the tv is turned on. At times the greens will stay for the remainder of the viewing time, and at times it will shift back and forth between the normal blue colors and the greens at erratic intervals. I have my High Definition connection feeding the Component 2 connection. This set is 2 1/2 years old. It started doing this very infrequently approximately nine months after purchase. As of last week it is occuring frequently. If all power is connected from the tv and allowed to sit for 10 minutes, the color returns to normal when powered on. Please help! I spent $4500 for this set. The picture is absolutely beautiful when the colors are correct, however I am hurting, knowing I have a problem with such an expensive purchase. Thanks you so much. Hope you can help or steer me in the right direction.

Re: color problem

My guess would be a cold solder joint on the av board. when picture looks good go to connectors and wiggle them if the set acts up you have your answer.

I hooked up my cable box up to my sceptre tv and it had sounds but the picture is black and white I even went and bought the blue and green cords but still only black and white

With the blue/green/red cords (Component) you need to get a very good bright light on the connectors so you get the plugged into the correct COMPONENT connectors on the TV. Note, there are white and red AUDIO plugs right near the COMPONENT input so you need to be VERY careful. If you get it wrong, the colors on screen are often off and even black&white.

How is your cable box connected to the TV? Screw on "COAXIAL", Yellow, Red, White "RCA", single flat connector "HDMI" or 5 colored plugs 2 X Red, 1 X White, 1 X Blue, 1 X Green "COMPONENT"

Contrast really dark but seems to improve after the tv has been on several hours

You may have a problem with the inverters in the unit, they are responsible for lighting up the back panel. Check or have checked the power supply voltage to the inverters, should be around 18-24 volts DC. Also leaky capacitors on the power supply will cause this issue as well as leaky or puffy capacitors on the inverter.

I have an Envision AOC 32 tv monitor and want to hook my WII up to it, It has yellow white and red wires. The back of the monitor has HMDI, PC Cable, and coax connectors. It also has speaker out puts and...

Yellow Is VIDEO, Red & White is your AUDIO. (Stereo). They should go color to color on the TV's AV input. This is AV, and you use 3 wires to connect this way.
The Red, Green, & Blue, is called COMPONENT, & is ONLY VIDEO, the AUDIO, still must use Red & White. So to connect with Component you use 5 wires, altogether, 3 for Video, 2 for Audio.
Plug them in color to color & choose the right INPUT on the TV, and turn on your input device.

The color on the screen is green when I watch movies. How do I fix this problem?

Good day sir, your inquiry about the green lcd screen can be caused by several things. 1. The monitor/tv produces 3 colors, red green and blue, the tv mixes these three colors to produce the picture. a loss of red and blue produces this green screen. so check the cable, specially the red and blue jack of the component inputs, and the red and blue cable. 2. there may be loose contact on the signal cable. try using the video input instead of the component input. 3. the dvd player may have the problem, check the player component out jack. a loose jack port can cause these problem. hope this may help. thanks

Philips 23PF9966/37 color problem!

Most likely you can adjust it in the Service Alignment Mode (SAM).

Press 062596 followed by the STATUS button (upper left). Navigate to "White Tone", press the right key to enter and select "Normal" mode. Set the colors:

Red = 135, Green = 128, Blue = 133.

The "Cool" and "Warm" menus are deltas from the "Normal" settings:

COOL: R -3, G -1, B 5
WARM: R 2, G -3, B -13

Press the "MENU" button to return to the main menu, then the "Power" button to turn the TV off.

Connecting a wii system to a sanyo DP26648 tv

It has to do with the type of input - Video2 and 3 are Component video inputs, requiring a 3- wire component video cable (Red,blue,green for video, red/white below for audio). Video 1 is for analog equipment (Yellow for the video, red and white for the audio). Unless your Wii comes with a component video out cable and jacks (same red blue green), you'll have to use video 1 for the Wii, and use Video 2 for the dvd. You'll need a component video (3-wire) cable for your dvd, which should have the jacks for it. You can use the present cable you're using for the dvd, but you'll have to change the connections on the back of the dvd to component video out, and you'll still need another 2-wire cable to connect the audio out on the dvd to the audio in on Video 2 on the tv.

Here's the manual for your tv - look on page 8 for these connections. the Wii will be an analog connnection, the dvd will be a digital connection.

Hope this helps!

DVD won't play movies in color

RCA cable connectors (red,white, yellow) are usually for an analog setup. You could still use these for "component" setup, but know the difference with color stamps as follows:

Component color stamps are "blue, green, red" ( blue is marked Pb, green is marked Y, red is marked Pr)

RCA color stamps your using are "red, white, yellow"

Here are the proper hook up method for "Component" using your "RCA" connectors:

On both the TV and DVD component setup:

Plug the red RCA fitting in the component port marked "Pr (red)

Plug the white RCA fitting in the component port marked "Pb (blue)

Plug the yellow RCA fitting in the component port marked "Y (green)

Be sure this setup is the same for the TV's component input ports, and the DVD's component output ports.


For optimum picture quality you may want to purchase component cables as the gage is thicker giving better impedance match resulting in better picture and sound quality.

I think DVD player is hooked with TV via component video input.
