My TV worked fine until 3 days ago. It never runs for more than 1 hour per day as it is in my bedroom. I turned it on and the main picture is correct but the red and green have slid over so now none of the colors are correct. I have tried every button under settings, including factory reset. I know most TVs have that red and green horizontal and vertical setting that can be adjusted, I can't seem to find anything like that on mine. HELP!!!

Re: the colors red and green shifted right
Unless you are a qualified TV repair person with access to the technical manuals and electronic test equipment for your set you are wasting your effort, this is not an adjustment problem, it is a circuit board failure issue, the cost of repairing these newer sets is so high that replacement is the best option in all but a few cases, go ahead and rate this thanks for trying but the info I have given is correct.

The problem you have is the grayscale tracking needs to be reset.
First, This looks like a philips tv. In order to set the grayscale tracking remove the back of the set. There should be rectangular shaped box that is marked screen and focus on it with 6 knobs coming out of it.
NOTE: DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING INSIDE THE SET-YOU WITH BE SHOCKED! WITH THE TV TURNED ON, WITH THE REMOTE, TURN DOWN THE COLOR TO ZERO. ON THE CONTROLS I PREVIOUSLY MMENTIONED, THERE ARE RED,GREEN AND BLUE ADJUSTMENT POTS.
TRY TURNING DOWN THE RED UNTIL YOU SEE A NORMAL GRAY PICTURE. YOU MAY HAVE TO ADD MORE GREEN OR BLUE AS NEEDED. IF THIS DOESNT LOOK RIGHT ,TURN ALL 3 R.G ANDB ALL THE WAY DOWN, THEN ADJUST THEM UNTIL THE COLOR IS JUST APPEARING ON THE SCREEN, MAKE THE PICTURE AS GRAY AS POSSIBLE. iF THIS DOESNT WORK,YOU WILL NEED A SERVICE PERSON TO REPAIR YOUR TV.
1. Unplug unit from wall for 3 minutes; 2. Press & hold Power button for 1 minute; 3. Plug in unit. OR: 1. Unplug for 3 minutes. 2. Plug in unit. 3. HOLD Power Button as unit starts ... hold until the unit flickers on then off twice.
This effectively returns the components to factory specs, much like resetting a computer. It offers a *temporary* fix, lasting 45 minutes to hours. All depends on the unit.
Mom has an Insignia 32" with the same color separation problem, which worsens as the day progresses. Best results achieved while television is cold.
Dust in the unit could contribute to the problem ... try to keep the unit dust free as possible.
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
I have a philips pf50 9630a/37 tv may come on or it may not unplug it and take a chance then comes the 6 steady red flashes followed by 3 rapid red flashes the screen had been completely replaced by philips a year and a half ago
If you are using a HD cable box or satelite with component outputs, be sure that all 3 cables ( green, red, and blue ) are making good connection.A loss of red or blue will cause color shift. Usually,if the tv menu comes up as the correct color but the picture dose'nt, it is most likely a signal problem.
