Hello, my faithful VPW425 no longer shows the color right. On any input, the colors tend to be red-green-yellowish. This likely means that no blue shows up to balance. However, while switching inputs the screen does turn blue as it is supposed to. This tells me my display is just fine. I brought the unit to a repair shop and they told me I need to change an electronic board inside. While I have the skills to do that, I do not know which is the board in question (they would not be more specific). Can anybody point me to the right section? Or, even better, is anybody aware of where I could get that part? Thank you.

Looks like you are using Component cables. There are five cables. The first three cables are Green,Blue and Red. These are the ones that are molded next to each other and are the Video signal cables. The other two cables are Red and White and they are the audio cables.
First to correctly hook up these cables you need to Connect (Match) Color for Color. (Green to Green, Blue to Blue, and Red to Red. To tell if you have correctly connected the Video cables is to look at the screen. If the picture looks ok (Normal with no colors missing then you have connected the video cables correctly). If you see a missing color meaning red, then switch the Red cables. The picture should be ok now. The remaining two cables are the Red and White cables. The "Red cable" is for the "Right" audio input and the "White" cable is for the "Left" audio Input". If all is connected correctly then you should have a good picture and Left and Right audio.
Well, there probably isn't any relation between the two problems occuring exept for the timing. Magnetism won't affect a rear projection LCD.
I would say that your description is a bit odd, though. Usually on this model, there is a blue blob that shows up, eventually turning into a blue haze, and a star pattern of stuck pixels. It almost sounds like you have a bad set of component cables. On the SXRD's, they usually turn green.
Does it do it on all inputs (including the channels)? If it does, then it is the optical block. If it does not, then I would suspect that it is cable-related. If it is the optical block, then there is no way that any input can be different from the others (except for digital/analog differences, but those are usually obvious with patterns vertically on the screen).
If it does not look the same on all inputs or channels, change out whatever cables you are using. A loss of the red or blue cable in a component can give the symptoms you describe.
If the set is hooked up using Component cables (red, green, blue), then check to make sure the cables are hooked up correctly, and not defective (change them out). If the color problem remains, then the problem may be in the Optics block of the television (which is not unheard of in this unit).
If the menu of the TV displays blotchy discoloration, and the discoloring is the same for every input on the tv (stationary), then it is the Optics, and the optics need to be changed. It is not the easiest job in the world, and the block itself is quite expensive, although the unit my be under an extended warranty from Sony. Contact them directly to see if you can get any help (cost or service-wise). Hope this helps...
basically we use RGB color system so it contains color like red green and blue....in ur web cam settings u only increased the content of red color and u decrease the content of green and blue...so pls take ur settings and put all three colors to a same number...it means u have number from 1 to 100 and u can give the red green and blue colors up to this limit....so put green in 32 and red in 30 and blue in 32......then it will b corrected
