Vizio 32 inch now shows mostly only green and red colors

Recently turned on our 18 month old Vizio 32" LCD TV and the predominant colours are now green and red, some tans I guess and blue is gone completely. Of course the manufacturer/Costco warranty is gone now but does anyone know if this is a $200 or less fix our should we just remove and replace this unit?

Thanks!

    My Viz went "pop" one day and now shows mostly red and green on the Analog HD input. TV through the HDMI input looks fine, but xbox through the red green blue inputs look bad.

    My TV also shows mostly green. When I play Matrix 1 (DVD), there is a scene that is supposed to be pure white background. But it looks so green instead. FYI, mine is about 2 year old.

    on the dark colors and red it shows a neon green. Also eyes and teeth and around the outside edge. Have done the reset all setting. Have tried vizio tech support and they had me email them pictures of the screen. They still have not emailed back.

Tip

SONY TRINITRON ONE COLOUR PREDOMINANT SCREEN


Sony Trinitron sets are of CRT [Caothde Ray Tube] types. The common fault seen in these type of TVs are any one colour predominant on screen wih sound OK. Either red, blue or green colour with some thin horizontal lines at about an inch apart will be seen on the entire screen. This is totally a display card problem, which can be seen pluged onto the picutre tube neck. There are three electron guns for every picture tube, which emits red, blue, and green beams, which in turn illuminates the phosphor on the screen to get that colour. If no emission from all guns, results in a blank screen, ie black screen without any disply at all. The three colour beams together produces proper coloured picture what we see on screen. These three gun's terminals are brought out by pins of the picture tube outside to which video signals are given in appropriate proportion to produce a TV picture. Normally, all these three pins are biased with a voltage of about 170 to160VDC+ve. Take one colour gun, as an example and and let me describe the problem.
Let it be a green gun. These guns are called cathodes of the picture tube. If it gets a voltage with respect to its grid, it will emit electrons according to the voltage applied to it. This is a negative process, that is, as the voltage at this pin drops, its emisson incresses and vice versa. If the emission increase, the colour with respect to that gun also will increase and gets predominant at the screen. So when we see a green predominant screen, there will be less voltage at the green cathode with resepect to the other two. If red colour is predominant, the voltage at red cathode will be less than the other two. If blue colour is predominat, the voltage at the blue cathode will be less than the other two.
We must find out the reason for this fault first. Assume that your Tv has a red predominant screen with some thin lines across it, at about one inch apart of the entire screen, it is clear that the the red cathode voltage is very lower than the other two. the main reason for this fault, normally seen in most of the Sony Trinitron, are loose soldering points either to the picture tube base socket or the resistor connected between the red drive transistor's collector point. Resoldering the most of these points on the base card by applying a little more solder will rectify this probelm. Other possibility is shorted video output transistor of that cathode. A direct short [collector to emitter] of these transistors will drop volatge to very low at that respective cathode of the picture tube, and that colour will be pridominant along with lines. Replacing the transistor will solve the problem. In some cases, the resistor connected to that transistor may have blown out. If so, it should alo be replaced. Whatever the case may be, voltage at the respective cathode that emits colour will be very low with respect to the other two. Find out the reason and rectify it. You can compare the voltages of the other two cathodes with respect to the faulty colur cathode. Cathode pins will be marked on the base card, and can be identified. It is best to pull out the base card from the picture tube neck and place it somewhere a safe place without shorting it with other parts of the TV. You can measure the voltages of these points very easly, without fearing the damge to the picture tube. After all are found Ok, replug the base card and switch on the TV. The set will be alright. In rare cases, chroma IC also can be a reason for this fault. if it is faulty, after a short period after switch on the TV, the IC will overheat and shutdown the entire system.

The colors are going out in Vizio E320VL. Can I fix this by replacing the main board or is there another solution?


Sounds like a faulty Timing Control board, I had the same problem except yellows showed up green.

Hey there, I have a 6 month old vizio 32" LCD 60hz


LCD inverter module may have encountered a failure. Most common is an electrolytic capacitor failing in the power supply. Examine the board to see if any of the caps have a bloated or raised top, they should not be swollen or leaky. If so find the replacement capacitor # on line and replace. You will require a modicum of soldering skills. You indicate the tv is 6 months old.
Return it for warranty service, do not open your tv or you will void your consumer warranty.

HDTV LCD 32 inch is all green. Good definition but all green. Have tried all color adjustments but even turning down the green all the way still leaves a green screen with some red and blue colors in the...


THe most likely cause for this problem is bad connection of the cable connecting the main TV board with the LCD controller. It's called LVDS cable and is hard to miss, usually fat round and black, connecting a board from the chasis with a little board in the top center of the LCD assembly.

I'd open the TV and gently try and reattach the cable to see if that yields any results. You can try it a few times, in fact I'd do it while the TV is open and working so I can better see if adjusting it makes a difference.

There's also a chance that the LCD logic itself got burned and misses on one of the colors. But I don't remember ever seeing that.

Wavy red lines or red pixelation, not sure what it is


Go to Vizio website and buy the extending warranty, you need to have your TV replaced since the problem is with the screen itself.

Check the cable connections and/or replace the cables to the AV2 input.

If replacing the cable doesn't provide a solution, try running your DVD through the input. Since it works fine now, you would be checking the input AV2 by putting your working DVD. If the DVD plays with no problems, the input is fine.

Also try the VCR using coax into the TV instead of RCA into AV2. This will give you some idea about the condition of the VCR.

I suspect either the VCR or the cables.

Too much green color


Problem solved. I tried playing DVD and the TV picture was fine. So I double-checked cable wires from cable box - one of the wires was loose (obviously it was the red color input). After tightening, the TV picture is good as new.
