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!

When I hook up DVD player to 32inch LG television there is no color on the TV it plays in black and white. Why?


first check color level setting on the tv when on av source input. double check input you are using, yellow video input (not green)
then try another device in that same input, then try the DVD player on another tv. The problem will be either DVD player or incompatibility or bad main board in TV, but usually a DVD or compatibility problem(cheap DVD player)

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.

Contrast really dark but seems to improve after the tv has been on several hours


Hi:
You may have a problem with the inverters in the unit, they are responsible for lighting up the back panel. Check or have checked the power supply voltage to the inverters, should be around 18-24 volts DC. Also leaky capacitors on the power supply will cause this issue as well as leaky or puffy capacitors on the inverter.
