Question about Sylvania 6720FDD 20 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

TV is coming up in blue and green.

Hello. I had just changed the outlet in which my TV is plugged into to free up space for my air conditioner. When I was done and plugged my TV back in, the TV began coming out in blue and green and a little bit of the true picture. I tried the simply remedies, like changing the outlet it's plugged into, fiddling with the cable wire things like that. To no avail, I have been unsuccessful. I was hoping you knew how to fix this tedious problem. Best regards.

Re: TV is coming up in blue and green.

If some areas of the screen are blue and green while other areas are normal, then either the picture tube has been heavily magnetized or damaged by falling over. If there is any kind of magnetic field near the set, such as a large stereo speaker or elecrtic motor, move them away from each other, unplug the TV and let it sit for an hour or so, plug it in and turn it on. The TV demagnetizes the picture tube with each cold start. If the colors are still off then it may need a stronger external demagnetizer, but if the tube was damaged by shock then it cannot be fixed.

Green light blinking

So the green light on the TV blinks, but the screen doesn't come on? The first thing I'd try (because it's free), is leaving the TV unplugged overnight. It may just need a discharge. If this does work, it'll take a couple minutes for the TV to come on afterwards. You may also want to try plugging it into a different outlet just in case the power level is wrong at that outlet. Beyond that, it could be the power supply or the main picture tube. Try what I suggested above, and if it doesn't work we'll look into it further.

My tv won t turn on i just purchased it today i plugged it in and it won t turn on

Check the electrical outlet which the tv is plugged into. Make sure nothing is loose at the outlet as well as on the back of the tv where the power cable plugs in. Another thing to try is plug a different device into that same electrical outlet and see if it turns on. If it doesn't turn on, it could be a faulty electrical outlet. If you've tried both the remote & the power button on the tv, a shot in the dark would be to change the batteries in the remote.
You could always try calling their tech support at 1-800-256-2487. A last resort would be to return the tv from where you purchased it.

I hooked up my Vizio LED LCD to my Philips surround sound and my DVD picture is pink. What do I do?

This sounds like a problem with the component video connection (the red/green/blue cable; sometimes labeled Y,Pb,Pr). You can get a pink screen if the Green (Y) or the Blue (Pb) aren't plugged in correctly. Recheck those first.

The tv will not come on...when you hit the power button a red light flashes . but nothing comes on

Lets focus on the external portion of the TV set first (95 percent of all TV problems are related to things EXTERNAL To the tv itself) Check the physical CONNECTION of all cables by removing each wire bare or RCA and reinstalling it (Each power cable as well), once you have removed one cable, check it for fraying, and if it is already bare, splice a new fresh connection for it. 5. Check to make sure there are NO OTHER uneeded radios, system nearby. these systems, when powered on, will cause electromagnetic interference and prevent more than just severe tv interference SURGE PROTECTOR Surge protectors account for more than 75 percent of electric faults to stereo equipment. Lets start with your AC Wall outlet. It is standard in america that 220 Volts from out of these outlets. This implies that each device will be using 220 Volts (From within that grid zone). If anything including an alarm clock is plugged into any AC outlet socket in the vicinity of the stereo equipment/TV, it will cause electric outage, and prevent electronics from even turning on! Your TV needs dedicated electric power. If your TV is located in the living room then unplug everything else in the living room. Lets plug the TV set into a Dedicated socket. Check all light switches to ensure that power is on for that outlet. Check the TV cable for Fraying both on the ac wall end and where it plugs into the TV. Check all GFCI outlets to ensure that all red reset buttons are pushed in, check the circuit breakers for proper connection and they are turned on. Now, lets try the TV set without it connected to any cable services, vcr, dvd, stereo system, etc.

Although tv is showing picture the colours only showing background etc are green and blue

Your TVs red colour output section has the trouble. There is no red output at the red cathode of the picture tube. The red, green, and blue output sections are on the picture tube base board. In some Philips model, these will be consists of transistors, and some has an IC or Tree ICs for three colour output used. You just open your TV, measure the voltages at these three cahodes. There will be markings on the printed circuit board for these cathodes marked as [Rk,Bk and Gk].
In your TVs case the voltage at the Rk marked pin will be higher that the other two cathodes. This can be caused by an open drive transistor or an Ic whichever may ysed there. If it is transistor, just replace it with a same type and number, as in the ace of ICs the related Ic, must be replaced. If only one Ic is uded for red, green and blue outputs, that Ic must be replaced.
If you need any more assistance, feel free to get me through Fixya. Ok.

Blue Screen

Hello, If you are using this combo with cable and the channels just coming through, you will need to replace the tuner(mounts vertically on the main board and it's located directly behind the cable/antenna connector). If you are trying to use this TV with a set of rabbit ears, the free signal channels turnes digital last year and that is why you get nothing. The tuner as an assembly is still available from a couple of sources: and Union Electronics(
