The green is taking over all the color on the tv

Put in a new bulb, but everyones still has green faces on the screen. The color was great until a couple months ago. the tv is less than 2 years old and is only on about 15-20 hours a week, but some weeks i am out of town and it is not on at all. my last tv similar to this one is a mitsubishi, and it still works fine after 10 years. this new tv must have a factory defect???

I have the same TV which had the same issue ( green in picture ) - back on 10/2007. I called Sony. They had their technician replace the optical box ( factory defect ). There was no charge for the repair even though TV was out of first year of warranty. Call Sony.

The colors are not sharp any more and they all blend in together, its either too much red or too much green or blue what can be the problem?


manual convergence should fix the problem if it does not the set most likely either has a bulb burnt out or a bulbs power / focus needs to be adjusted by taking off the panel and finding a 6 screw control panel

...
...

should look like that 3 screws in a row on top of another three screws each of thees control the power and focus of each color this is a somewhat delicate process and is a huge pain on larger tvs that you cannot completely see the picture or color while you are directly under in front of it so I had my gf come in the room and sit across to let me know which color was doing what if you dont have someone you will need to check after each adjustment

now the diagnostic
as i said each screw controls a colors power and focus the focus is used if you see an outline of a color around pictures if everyone looks like a dead jedi with a blue aura around them the blue focus needs to be adjusted and so on for each color if you skies or blue screens seem feint your blue power probably needs to be turned up and so on for each color

if through the course of this you can see the bulbs and notice one is out your probably looking at dealing with the color issue until the time you can purchase a new tv as the cost of the bulb and the technician needed to install it as they are wired to a circuit board and requires technical knowledge and tools


hope this helped

Too much yellow in the picture...new bulb


hi, The only way you can fix that permanently is by taking the TV apart and doing some complicating soldering (the key thing in your description being that the menus come up green). For a temporary fix, try hitting or jostling your TV, because when it becomes normal it might stay normal until another large hit. Or try dampening vibrations by placing it on top of styrofoam or something. Better yet.... just go ahead and buy a new TV. thank you for using fixya,rate my answer

We also have a greenish tint. We put a new bulb in because the box that said bulb needed replacing came up. We reset the tv but its still green. we have tried to adjust colors, temperature adjustment and...


Your "light engine has possibly gone down on you, did you replace just the bulb it's self or the complete bulb assembly? If you pulled out light assembly and replace just the bulb then repalce light assembly, if you repalced the whole light socket assembly and still have greenish color the you have a "light engine problem". Seek repair tech.

There are three colors on the screen all make it blurry


the three colors in your screen are off alignment due to a color convergence failure. Usually due to damaged convergence power amplifiers(mounted on heavy looking metal heat dissipators)located in the D board. Replacing them usually takes care of the problem, sometimes there is further problems that arise from this failure some pico fuses located in the G board(power supply).

I fixed by taking off the back and with can of air blew lightly into the color wheel area ( has tiny hole) I didn't put the nozzle through the holes. But the minute I did that a big piece of dust came out and tv is working great. Hope it helps

Your bulb is burned out. I have had the same problem. It seems this television has an overheating problem--and short bulb life. I have had our 50 Magnavox dlp for two years and just put in the second bulb before Christmas. You can buy the bulb from a dealer on ebay for $99 and install it yourself. I is not in the housing so you have to carefully take out 4 screws and replace the bulb without touching the face of the bulb. To buy the one from Magnavox with the housing is much more expensive. I think the first time my husband replaced the bulb it took about 45 minutes--this time it took about 20.

Green picture


i dont think it the color wheel - to make it green the glass would of come off and the tv would be vibrating badly. to check pull the lamp out and with a flash light look at the color wheel -
you most likely got a surge that glitched the eeprom - you will need the service remote to adj the white balance
thanks

My dad has a sony rear projection tv and had this same problem. A shop had to replace one of the color tubes(?) (green, red, or blue) had to be replaced. The shop said this was common with Sony rear projection TV's.
