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.

OK, here is the breakdown on whet you are doing wrong.
Video 1 - Composite - Video - Yellow White - Audio In - Right Red - Audio in - Left
Video 2 - Components - HD - RGB = Red, Green, Blue Video - Red - Red Colors Green - Green Colors Blue - Blue Colors White - Audio In - Right
Red - Audio in - Left
Your GameCube will only work on Video 1, unless you buy an HD (Component cable). You will need to buy HD cables for your device connected to Video 1 to work on video 2. I will assume it is a DVD player. This is a high definition cable to produce a better picture. Let me know if you do not completely understand

Hi, This would be 5 pins, red-white is for audio and rest of 3 pins red-green-blue for video signal, it calls component video. Find out red-green-blue jacks at back of TV that would be label as Y, Yr, Yb Plug each pin in same color to get color picture.
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
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.
The 37" Vizio I just bought has a very confusing feature where the same input can be used as either the Y channel of the component or the full video channel for composite. If you plug a component source into the TV and then select the composite input ("AV" on the remote), you will see a black and white version of the full component signal (makes sense as the Y channel is just the luminance component). As sad as it is, I was stumped by this for a while until I happened to hit "COMP" and got full color. FWIW, the manual warns about this, but it really doesn't emphasize the point. I wonder how many returns they get because of this.
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...
