Color fading to black and red "nightvision" picture

Our BenQ 46w1 is having problems maintaining optimal color, it fades to black and red "nightvision" type picture. However it does not do this during any HD program and is temporarily fixed by switching the imput. We have changed all cables and have changed direct inputs through cable box, dvd, vcr and the wii. Any thoughts would be helpfull.

I have a 55 Vizio 3D smart tv. This picture color fade in and out to the point that I cannot watch tv. I this a problem with the main board?

Hello Patricia,
  • There is a loose soldering connection in the Main Board. That happens because the components on the are generating a lot of heat therefore melting solder connections.
  • Stop beating on the TV's back, that only makes the problem worse.
  • Take it to a shop.Or if you are a tech, try locating the loose connection(s) and solder it back.
  • Also check your Warranty Period, It may cost you 0$. Call Vizio if you still have Warranty on the TV.
Here is a link to Vzio Supoport.
Good Luck,

I own a Panasonic PT-60LC14 DLP TV. After the tv has been on for awhile, the red color drops from the picture. I have to turn ther tv off and then on again to get it to come back. Has anyone had this...

i used to be a tv sounds like an intermitent fault,which only does it sometimes.most likely cause is dry joints on circuit board,which is faded or discoloureded solder.try resoldering dry joints ,faded or discoloured solder on circuit its an intermitent problem so it sounds like dry joints on circuit board which is faded solder,which means only half of the current is passing through the circuit..resoldering will allow the full current to go through circuit.

32''LCD TV Polaroid FLM-3201 - picture crackling and color fading

Sounds just like a loose solder connection. The trick is finding it. I would start with the microchips and the large transformer. Otherwise, it could be a capacitor starting to short out. I would give both options a 50-50 chance to be the problem.
