Question about Vizio L32 32 in. LCD HDTV

2 Answers

Vizio L32 - Picture has turned red and pink.

32 " LCD was purchased December 2005. TV has been hooked up to my Directv HD receiver and has worked ok until last night. The HD 20 receiver and Vizio lcd went out at the same time. Lost sound and picture turned red. Directv is replacing the receiver since they evidently knew of their problem, but TV is out of warranty and tough luck. Today, I was able to play a DVD. The sound returned to the TV, but the color has not changed. I have tried resetting everything but it does not help, everything is primarily red and pink. I can see some blue and shades of grey/black. Based upon what I am reading on the internet, it sounds like my motherboard may have gone out or the tv is not repairable. Is it worth trying to have fixed or should I just replace it?

Thanks for your help.

    I have been trying some different options. The LCD TV works when playing a DVD or VCR tape other than the extreme color distortion to the reds, pinks and oranges. In addition, the images are very dark.



    I hooked it up as a computer monitor and it works perfectly with no color problems. This is very interesting and I think that I will just use it as a monitor and buy a new TV.

I have posted my problem and potential solution to convert the 32" TV to a monitor. I would have preferred to keep it as a TV and not have to buy a new TV, but I do not believe that the problem can be addressed inexpensively since there are no controls built into the TV for fine tuning the color. Even Vizio advises that it would have to go out for repair if it is even repairable. It has been my experience that trying to repair this type of item is normally as expensive as buying a new one.

If one of your experts has an easy inexpensive fix that will work, I will gladly pay for this advise. I do not want to charge my card for someone to tell me it is not repairable or I need to take it in for repair.

Thank you.

The color on my TV is all pink. I have tried a hard reset but it didn't help.


Your TV has lost a GREEN color from a basic color palette (Red-Green-Blue). It is often caused by:
- damaged LCD cable (which connects the display with a signal board inside the TV),
- damaged video signal cable (ex. SCART, HDMI, VGA),
- damaged video processor (on the signal board).
I can't give you a more accurate answer, because I don't know what is your TV mark and model and, in what situations you have the problem.

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.

Check the remote control for its infra-red emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check by pressing all the buttons on it; and see whether all of it generates infrared signal while pressing. If it is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. It has details about how to check a remote control; by one among the post. Pull up older posts. If the remote control is found OK; check and replace the infra-red sensor inside the TV.
