    My problem was solved by replacing the HDMI cable. The cable that I used was a small cable intended to be used for a laptop computer. A Vizio tech sugggested that I replace the HDMI cable. I installed a heavy duty HDMI cable with ethernet capabilities. The heavy duty cable solved my problem & my color & picture quality is great.Thanks again for your fast response & I will definitely use your service in the future & recommend you to my friends. Thanks, Dwight Stroud

Such a god damn joke that Hitashi can sell such a lemon part and know about it. On top of that, not help at all getting the part fixed... I mean honestly? How is that even remotely legal?

My VIZIO TV will not turn on. Ren=mote batteries check fine.


Hi Ranjana,
To check the remote control, please press any key and see it's led through the camera of your mobile phone. You will see purple light blinking if the remote control is ok. If the remote control turns out to be good, it is the TV which needs attention.
Good Luck

Wavy picture with blue and purple color.


Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

Problem #1) Convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Akai large screen T.V. color problems


I have a similar problem with my AKAI 42 inch plasma, now my whole tv is purple. all you can do is contact akai warranty and have a service provider come out. but let me tell you, it is not an easy process if the service provider cannot help you. after the service provider told me that my tv was a goner. it took me two months to get a box to then send the tv back to an akai service center. now i have to wait a month or so, before i get it back. i wish you good luck.

Hitachi 50V500 TV: has a red line that outlines faces or text


It's a light engine defective part. Hitachi knows about it and if you call their customer relations department, they will refer you to a dealer in your area to come and diagnos the problem. Once Hitachi can verify that's the problem, they will ship the part to the dealer. We had our part in 2 days and had it installed today. No more problems. TV looks brand new. We had to pay the installation of $400 but the part runs around $1500 and Hitachi covered it. We felt like $400 was worth the $3600 we bad 3+ year ago when we bought it. The color will only get worse if the light engine is not replaced. Good Luck! It was an easy fix!

Everything in picture on television are green


The basic colors in the TV is RGB & each color has a diff amplitude & frequenc. It seems that the IC controlling the RED & BLUE has lost some of it's capabilities due to lower voltage supplied/regulated by the chip, which generally happens after quite long period of usage. However this seems an inherent fault with visio & most of the early sets do not have this problem sorted out at the manufacturing level & is a problem for most of TV's which are unpredictable & could occur in a month or year. If still under warranty, pressurize your dealer/distributor/service center to sort it pronto or ........... face the consequence..........sodeep

Bad color .


Turn the set on without an antenna, so there is only snow on the screen. Measure the 3 cathode voltages at the CRT, red green and blue. If the 3 voltages are about the same, around 175 volts, then the CRT is bad (purple picture means bad green gun). If the red and blue are around 175 and the green is over 200 volts, then there is a chassis problem, usually the video output transistor itself has gone bad or come loose.
