Plasma Screena growing yellow-greenish discoloration

I have been experiencing a growing yellow-greenish distortion in the upper 1/4 of the screen. It is most noticeable on faces and objects of a lighter color. I have a 50CMX Plasma (Pioneer). It's about 5-6 years old now. The problem seemed to have gone away, but has not come back even more prevalent then before.

    Interesting, never would have thought it was the power supply, though i find it curious that about two years ago Pioneer, for free, came out and replaced the power supply, proactively, as they were getting all sorts of calls with a specifc ps unit that my 50 CMX had.

Depending on the severity of it, it can be just a couple of voltage adjustments on the power supply. If that does not clear it up if you replace the power supply it should take care of it.

I have pink color horizontal lines on my LG LCD monitor screen,How do i solve it?


You can fix you have to follow this instruction

1-Reset the TV by unplugging its power cord for 30 seconds and plugging it back in. This is an essential troubleshooting tool as a simple reset often will resolve the great majority of technical issues experienced by any kind of TV. Power the TV on after plugging it back in and check the picture for any improvement.

2-Unscrew the coaxial cable that attaches your wall cable outlet to either the coaxial cable input on the plasma TV or to any digital cable converters you may use at home. Check the copper needle in the middle of the cable for any bending or damage and screw the cable back on the coaxial input. Again, check the picture for any improvements.

3-Secure the audio/video connection cables that attach the source device you are trying to watch to the plasma TV. This is a particularly important step if you use component cables. Component cables separate a video signal into different colors, so a damaged or loose component cable can lead to noticeable discoloration on the screen. Once the cables are secure, both in the source device and the plasma TV, check the picture again to see if this may have resolved the issue.

4-Scan your channel lineup and check the other TVs in your home to determine the scope of the problem. If you see the discoloration only on one or a few channels, and the same channels are discolored on the other TVs in your home, you may be part of a cable service outage and you will need to report the issue to your cable provider. If all the channels on the one TV have the same discoloration, and the other TVs in the home look normal, the plasma TV likely will need to be serviced for a problem with its picture components.

hope that it helped

Top 1/4 of ther screen is distorted


If that is a plasma - and it sounds like it is - it probably needs a new upper buffer board or, better yet, both buffer boards replaced.

My monitor screen has become greenish and with


Hello Devsi, hi, check your VGA cable connection for loose connections, try tighten it first to see if it solves the problem. the greenish thing is cause by a missing red signal, and the distortion is caused by a missing horizontal sync signal, also check out if there are bent pins on your monitor signal cable. just unplug the VGA cable and see if the pins are in order. if bent, carefully straighten it with a slim slotted screw driver.

Sony KV-32FV27 Picture Discoloration


It appears that the greenish discolored area could be cause by the Yoke or it could also be some magnetization on the screen as well.
If it's the yoke that moved slightly out of position, it can be adjusted, but i would suggest to let a repair tech do it due a high voltage around the area.
Try unplugging the TV for some time and plug it back in and hopefully the demagnetizer circuitry might be able to clear the greenish spot.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
