Question about Vizio P2 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

Yellow tinted picture

When I turned on the TV it flashed then went blank for a few seconds. When the picture appeared it was yellow. I tried leaving unplugged for hours, checked inputs...etc.. to no avail. The picture clarity is still excellent. You can also differentiate red colored items for some reason. How much does it typically cost to repair? Thanks, Starrman

Depending on the manufacture of your set there may not be anyone to service it.  Some manufactureres require you to ship the set to them for service.  The serial number will give you the inormation you need.  If the serial number is all digits the set is made by Akai and most parts are available from Fox International.  If the serial number is alpha numeric you need to call VIZIO OR V,INC.

Toshiba 46 inch regza yellow light blinks and picture wont come on but I have full audio


Most likely the power supply board needs to be replaced. It could also be the T-con board or less likely the display itself.

If you don't know what you're doing, DON'T OPEN THE TV UP TO FIX IT, THERE ARE HAZARDOUS VOLTAGES ON THE POWER SUPPLY BOARD, EVEN WEEKS AFTER THE TV IS UNPLUGGED!

If you don't know how to do it yourself, find some local Electronic repair shops, get quotes, try to find reviews on the shops.

Panasonic rear projection tv has a yellow tint, and it just turned off by itself while the indicator light flashed yellow. What's wrong with it.


The yellow tint can be caused by a faulty lens where the filters are burnt out. Normally this happens when the blue filter burns you get a yellow picture on the screen.

Unfortunately, this can be expensive to repair.

No picture on screen


Is the TV under warranty? If it is don't muck around, contact them straight away as you have a electronic problem with your screen.
Before that make sure the yellow chord is in the visual port and red and white into sound. 2) If thats all good try an experiment, as you know the sound is good, use one of the sound cables to replace the yellow. Is there a picture now? If so replace chord, if not make contact to exchange for warranty.

My tv screen when on turns yellow then after a while it will switch back to normal colors what can be wrong with it....


Televisions covered: all Projection with yellow picture, but not Projection TVs with a yellowish tint surrounding objects in a nearly normal picture.

Yellow = red + green
normal picture = red + blue + green (RGB). See illustration.

12_27_2011_5_00_56_am.png

Fig. 1 Additive color mixing in an RGB monitor, or RGB Projection TV.

The circuitry powering your blue output, or the blue light engine itself is starting to fail.

Operating Theory:

The lamp module shines a bright light into the optical unit; there are a series of lens and baffles, and at the top of the light engine, a lens puts the picture into a mirror which is reflected onto the screen; All video and color is processed thru the light engine. Blue most commonly fails first, leaving a yellow picture.

Yellow tint on right half of hdtv screen


The would be due to a faulty inverter that controls how much power is give to the display at a time so when these go out you will see this tint or black. So you can replace the inverter or bring it into a shop and have it replaced.
