LG tv color problem

Hi - We have an LCD tv (32 in.) that we have had for about a year and it just displaying yellows and greens strangely (e.g., green baseball fields look like a pale avocado color and people's faces look yellow). We tried adjusting the color controls but it didn't do much so we went back to the default. Any suggestions? Thanks so much!

Just like in Solution 3. Color was off. Looked in back and cables "appeared" to be ok. However, I disconnected the cables one by one and amazingly the color returned. So make sure your color cables are truly connected.

As infuriating as it is to see an expensive appliance bite the dust a week or so after warranty, we all forget the the law is on our side. Any appliance that costs a reasonable amount of money should be expected to last longer than 12 months. My $2500 LG Plasma died 2 months after the warranty expired, and of course LG didn`t want to know about it. One call to LG from consumer protection to remind them that a $2500 TV should last at least 4-5 years, resulted in my Plasma being repaired free of charge. I could tell that they wern`t happy about it, but they knew I was in the right. TRUE STORY!

Why is desktop green like theres way to much yellow hue


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

A fine green vertical line displayed on the Sony Bravia 46.


Thats a pixel data problem, there's no data being sent to that row of pixels so they don't change color. This is a pixel address registry (PAR) issue and the PAR circuits need to be serviced its usually due to open or shorted SMT components on the PAR circuits. PAR also sends data, voltage, and control to each pixel, the green line you see are pixels that have voltage but because there's no data sent too them their all green because there's no control. If the pixels have voltage but no data or control they show up as green red, blue, yellow, or whit line vertically down the LCD panel. The vertical-horizontal section of PAR are controlled by 16 to 32 bit micro-controllers which may need replacing. If its under warranty take it back if not have your local repair center fix the tv for you...
