Red and Green colour bleed on Sony LCD TV

My LCD TV picture has red and green colour bleed when the picture shows shadows. often this appears in hair colour or shadow from peoples faces which have a red / green appearance or edge. I have tried with HD TV and the problem still exists. The TV was supposed to be the top of the range during spring 2008. I have noticed this on some other LCD TV's but the majority are ok. Is this right? Can it be corrected? Please help? The colour is driving me crazy and I have been on to Sony to get resolved. What can I expect?

    I am using a Samsung LN40A650 as a computer monitor via DVI - HDMI connection.

    Red text and green text on white 'smears' a bit.

    Blue text on white does not. It's intolerable.

    Blue text is nice and crisp.

The problem is definitely not magnetic interference. There are no speakers near the television and it is not a CRT screen.

SOURCE: Screen shows blue patches on white also red lines on dark colour

Replace the video board, if you can find one. Letting it cool down will not help any.

SOURCE: shadows on screen

Try moving a medium powered magnet (not one for picking up heavy objects and not a refrigerator holding one) over the distorted area. If that doesn't work, try a more powerful one. This worked for my Toshiba LCD. Good luck!

SOURCE: Proscan 26LB30Q Vs PS2 = HELP

The red white and yellow cables are composite connections. The red/green/blue connections are component connections.

The playstation's composite connections consist of two audio connections- red & white, and a composite yellow video connection. The TV's white connection is the audio, and the red/green/blue are component video. You need an adapter that will connect the one yellow(composite video) to the three red/green/blue (component video) connections

Why are green horizontal lines are appearing, too much yellow colour and green light blinking red?


These horizontal lines are vertical flyback lines and would indicate
one or more of the tubes cathode drive circuits are defective.
As the picture is predominantly yellow this would indicate excessive drive to red and green guns. Check the red and green video output stages especialy any clamping diodes.regards from Vintie

Picture is OK, but colors are off and there is a blue star background that shows on dark colors.


Hello, With most rear projections there is usually an alignment to do with the set up with your TV. This is so the red, blue and green projectors align together to give the correct colouring. This sounds to me what may be causing the outlining of the blue. This can also make it seem off colour. Look in the set up menu of the tv and see if you can find this alignment feature. Usually a cross will appear and you move a blue, red, and green cross with the arrows on your remote to align over the original white one. If this does not work, it may also mean that one of your projectors, that is the red, blue or green one may be failing causing the off colouring. Hopefully this alignment may fix it for you.

Tv works but picture is showing in blue


If the picture is blue only and there is no red or green, you have either colour gun failures or if you are trying to watch a picture from a component source there maybe something wrong with the red and green cable feeds. Try watching a DVD using a single composite video feed (usually a yellow RCA plug). If this unit has an internal tuner (either analogue or digital) and you still only see blue broadcasts then you have a problem. Whether this unit is an LCD or CRT rear projection TV the repairs will probably be expensive. Ultimately, it is not a user repairable device and needs a qualified Sony tech to undertake the work.

Connecting old DVD player to LCD


Just respect the colors. Green output from the dvd to green input tv, Red output from the dvd to red input tv and the same with blue. All 3 cables (green , red, blue) are for the picture, so you got to plug another 2 for the sound.

Problem in Screen display


Hi, J ! You didn't say how old you set is, but to me it sounds like you may have a warped shadow mask in you picture tube. A shadow mask could be compared to a piece of screen wire. It's function is to make the electron "beams" from the three electron guns strike the proper phosphor dot to produce the proper color- red-green-or blue. If this is the case the picture tube would requie replacement. Stargazer
