Bad cable, replace it. If the cable is proven to be good then it is bad at the source (cable box) or the tv video card is bad. Eliminate backwards to find out. Plug the tv in with a new cable and if that does not fix it then plug something else into the tv such as a dvd player and see if the problem still exists. If it does then it is the TV itself. Message back if you get that far without results.

After lamp replacement, why is picture still green?


it seems like the green was not defective before you replaced the green. remove the red =no change in the screen color, that could be bad. put back red, then remove blue=screen color changed, blue is good, hope you got the idea.

Pioneer bdp 51fd picture color is green


check screen options. sometimes you can change the primary color's intensities(it looks stupid at 100% for all). You might have red a little low making yellow and blue show up greenish on the screen.

Can i fix my tv screen is red


Toshiba 36A10 36" TV is the model you have indicated---

If the screen is all red and or too bright (no green or blue can be seen) the problem is in one of two places: Either a shorted picture tube or the board that plugs onto the end of the tube.

That board sends red,green, and blue video and information to the picture tube via 3 pins on the tube (the K or cathode for each).

The set will have either 3 IC's on that board or 3 transistors, or a single larger IC for this.

to troubleshoot this:

I would locate the Red Cathode and unsolder that pin at the socket on that board--takes red out---if you have green and blue picture then---it is either the IC/transistor that feeds that on the board or the tube itself.

If it has 3 chips (usually will each have a metal plate attached for cooling) you can either remove and replace the red one OR what I do is swap it with the green or blue chip---if suddenly you now have a blue or green only screen you know that part is bad--simple as that.

If for any reason the picture tube turns out to be bad--you are finished and so is the set= way too expensive to replace it.

Let me know if you have questions or need advice.

Picture is black and white, but I have sound. I have red, green and blue plugins. The green one is fine, but I'm not sure which spots to put the red and blue wires in to fix the color.


blue is always in the middle and the green / red are on the ends. Black / white means you have the wrong matching cables. You need to make sure to match red to red, green to green, blue to blue.

Green picture only


The projection TV has 3 guns RED GREEN BLUE. In your case the red and the blue guns are gone. So you are getting the green color screen. You got to replace the picture tube.

My phillips model 60pp920217f has a horrible picture...no green to the color


The green CRT coolant has congealed thats whats giving you the green halos. Change the coolant in the green and blue and your set will be fine. red is never affected so the red coolant should be fine.
