Question about ViewSonic N2750w 27 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

33 Answers

TV just flashes different colors

I tried to turn on the tv with the remote, but it didn't work. I pushed the power button on the tv and it turned on, but instead of getting anything, it just flashed colors. Red, to green, to blue to yellow, etc. I couldn't change any inputs or get the menu to show up. It would just flash a color on the entire screen for a coupld of seconds and switch to a different color.

    We had the same problem too! And, like the others, we called Viewsonic and they suggested we send it in, or totally buy another TV! In fact, we were shopping for a bargain. I finally decided, what's to lose if I take a more careful look. I googled the model number and FixYA showed up!

    By the way, I followed the steps and it works--who-da-thunk, eh!

    Thank you so much! You all are great!

    Maybe one of us should phone Viewsonic and help them with how to inform other buyers.

    Take Care!

    I had the same issue after having a binge-watching session for about 10 hours. I tried the menu and enter and power button recommendation but my remote wasn't working with the tv at all. Also, trying to use the buttons on the tv to turn it off wasn't working so I changed the batteries in my remote, unplugged the cable that connects the tv to the power source and unplugged it. Presto! It was fixed. Thankfully, so I could finish my binge-watching.

You have entered a diagnostic colour test. With the TV powered on, hold the 'Menu' & 'Enter' together, then press the power button. Problem resolved

    I have a Sceptre X32 that is doing the same thing but it goes to a black blank screen then flashes all over again. I tried 2 methods of factory resets and then tried the above method. Nothing is working to clear this problem up. Sceptre support says to take to repair shop and I don't want to pay a fortune to get it repaired. Any idea what could be wrong?

Turn on the power, then hold "menu" and "enter" and "power" together, it works. It is too shame for ViewSonic support center, they asked me to take the TV to repair shop.

    I just overcame a similar problem with my Sylvania TV. Non of these worked for me. Instead I had to use the power and stand by button. First holding them together then alternating the pushing between the two buttons. My TV had a DVD stuck in while this was happening which might have changed the outcome of solving the problem. Reading what others did gave me hope and put me on the right track of figuring this out on my own. Thank you.

    Doesn't work on a Sceptre. Repair man basically told me it's a throw away TV, not worth the cost to fix the Sceptre. So this will be going to the dump.

ViewSonic support is incompetent. I got the same problem and the support person had no clue but to ask me to unplug the TV for 24 hours to "reset it". They also suggested I take to it for repair if it doesn't "reset" itself.

Thanks for this solution and for saving us money!!

Hi Guys,

I have a Samsung LED H5100 model. As soon as I turn on the television it shows red green blue grey white slides and won't come out of it. I saw above some of you have suggested the combination keys for viewsonic and other televisions. I would really appreciate if someone tells me the key combo for the said Samsung model mentioned above. I can't find it anywhere on the web.

That menu+enter+power did not work for my Haier lcd flat screen tv. What worked for me was literally pressing every single button on my remote one by one except the red yellow green and blue buttons at the bottom. Maybe it was only one button i needed to push on my remote the whole time but i will never know because I'm scared i'll mess it up again lol. I'm just relieved its working again.

Great Help...Thxs!
I have an LG 37LC2D. When I turned it on the green power light would flash 16 times and then the screen would flash red, green, blue, white black and then repeat continuously.
For this model you turn the TV on and then press the menu, enter and power at the same time before the green power light completes the 16 flashes.
Thanks again...LG wanted me to book a tech and as this is out of warranty it was going to cost me $$$...but not now!

If the other suggestions listed here don't work for you try this. This worked like a charm for my Magnavox.

Stand near the TV's power cord and on the TV's remote press first the arrow up then down and unplug the tv within 5 secs , wait 10 secs and try the tv again.

If that does not do it then repeat the procedure but this time with the arrows left then right

Tv blinks out when front buttons are pushed. model#ws-65511


If the TV is turning on and working regularly, but power button does not shut down and buttons on TV do not work, then it is a faulty touch control (button) board on TV.

If instead the TV does not even turn on, then tv is on protection mode, in that case it can be any internal fault.

If instead the problem is with remote buttons, then it is either a faulty remote or a faulty IR sensor.

Hughes Remote works the satellite but not the TV


You have to push and hold down TV and Mute button (for 2 seconds at the same time), then release them at the same time, then push channel up until the TV turns off.  Be patient and continue channel up until the TV turns off.  When it turns off, then push TV again to lock the code.

You were doing fine, but missed to push channel up to fine the code.
