Question about Vizio L32 32 in. LCD HDTV
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 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.
