Question about LG M2280D 22 in. LCD TV

Open Question

Tv screen is reddish / purple

Hi I'm new to this so hopefully I haven't posted twice. I got my tv for Christmas and it has been working well. I came home after a weekend away and turned it on to find the colours are all very severe.I have upc installed too so maybe that's the problem? Pretty much anything thats meant to be white is purple, all the colours are very very extreme and tinted red / purple. I have reset the factory settings for both upc and the tv twice now but it doesnt help. I have tried to mess with the settings myself but all i can do is dull the picture / colours a bit and it's definitely still not right. Can anyone help or give me pictures settings to try out? Is it likely to be a tv issue that needs a repairman rahter than me? is it something i did? any help will be greatly appreciated :)

Make sure that the color control level is set to the default or 50% to start with. This should be in the Video menu.

The colour for the tuner and for the encoded base-band video uses a circuit area called the colour demodulator. It is possible that this cirucuit area has failed and needs servicing.

SOURCE: LG 42'' TV has no sound but great picture. How do I get the sound?

You shouldn't need anything plugged into the accessory jacks to get local sound from your set. Go through the main setup menu and check audio settings; they may be set to turn off the internal speakers to send the sound to a home theatre that you apparently don't have. Most sets have that as a selection and supply L-R audio for an external system and mute the internal speakers.
FYI: The three connectors you mention are coded as follows:
Red - right channel audio White - left channel audio Yellow - composite video (contains synchronization signals and video)
These may be input connectors (for external VCR/DVD decks) so check your owner's guide to verify.

SOURCE: plasma tv has little red dots in the black

This problem (known as sparkles) can be cured by adjusting the ramp control on the Y-Sustain board. If this does not cure the dots then there is a software remedy for the control board which an LG repair centre could fix. Failing that a replacement board is required. The orbitor & whitewash are like screen savers to help to prevent a screen burn from a permanently displayed image.

Hi. i cant get the menu screen on my panasonic sc-pt90. and it wont play thru my tv


First and most important thing is - Is it connected to your TV? If it is you might try a different lead. You haven't said if this is a reinstall or a new install. If it is a new install, you should take it back to where you bought it. If it is a Reinstall, then the most likely problems are :- cable or connectors. if a cable replacement doesn't fix it, you might try pluging it into a different connector on your TV. Also make sure you are trying to view it on the correct channel of your TV. Hope this helps.

Chances are real good that your picture is showing its age. There are three color beams in the neck of the picture tube. When these electrodes are operating correctly the will produce an arc, that will produce the proper voltage for color correction. Much like the spark plugs in your car. When you have a fouled spark plug, you replace it. In the case of a TV, replacing the tube is the best way to correct the picture you are looking for. It would be to costly to do this of course. Another option is to rejuvenate the picture tube. Once again, rejuvenating the picture is last resort. Customers must be warned that rejuvenating may work or even in some cases destroy the picture tube. I want to remind you as well, the symptoms you describe will over work the main board as well. This TV is not feasible for repair. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!

I have only a purple screen when i log on to laptop


Is it a purple that sort of fades into a reddish that will then disappear?

If that's the case, and it often is, you would need a new invertor for your LCD.

Let me know if you need further help.

Good luck!!
