Audiovox lcd tv

After working fine for over a year, TV is displaying lots of green dots in areas that should probably be black. When cable box is turned off, screen that was previously black now has lots ov green dots/lines.

    The same problem exists when watching DVD's, and also when viewing photos from a memory stick slot on the TV. I also tried using component cables from the cable box to the TV instead of the HDMI cable that I've always used. The model is: FPE2706DV.

First easy thing to try is unplug the TV from the power for about half an hour and try it again. If no luck; Do you get the same effect if you unplug the cable box from the tv completely? what about if you are watching something from another source - DVD player or VHS or PC or similar. Do you get the same? Could you post back a photo of the green dots etc? may help us to diagnose the problem. Do you have a model number for your set - it doesn't seem to have posted? awaiting your info :)

    You can get a user manual for the set if you need it on this link;
    http://www.audiovox.com/webapp/wcs/store...

    Unfortunately I couldn't see anything relevant in there, but you may spot something.

    All the info I could find (depends on exactly what the green dots look like) tends to indicate that the screen needs replacing, which is unlikely to be worth it - contact Audiovox first (details in manual) and check though - it may be feasible.

    Most likely cause is pressure on the front screen, or burn marks on the backlight diffusers.

    Sorry if bad news but I think it is probably irrepairable.

    Hope this helps :)

Screen is all Green


New cable box recently? If not, your cable provider has probably pushed a firmware update to your cable box. Green screens are very common with HDMI connection. From your symptom, I am going to take a guess that you are connected via HDMI. If so, switch to Component cables and your problem is solved. It's not the TVs fault... cable boxes seem to be the single largest problem child for HDMI compatibility. I hope this was of some assistance.

Square box in middle of t.v. black everywhere else.


Turn off the closed-captioning. If it's set for text mode, the screen will blank out an area for the text to be displayed. On channels or programs where captions aren't being used you won't see any problems, but other times you'll have the mysterious black box. Many TV remotes have a single button to control captions, so it's easy to get into text mode without knowing it.

Green screen with sound from cable, but picture is fine with Wii


That would be my solution. The trouble is either in the box or your connecting cables. Verify this by connecting the cable directly to the set. Then try a new set of connecting cables, or call the cable provider to replace the box.

Black/Green Distortion - Picture Quality - Wharfedale


This is no solution but a point in a probable direction.

A tech guy told me ALL the LCDs they have seen in their repair shop have "swollen" capacitors, this is due to voltage instability. Lowering the internal voltage regulator and replacing the swollen capacitors (which eliminate noise) apparently restores the LCD to new working quality. Without actually "seeing" my problem the tech said that should repair it. I have not tried this yet but eventually will begin that way.
