Question about Polaroid FLM-3201 Television

1 Answer

Picture is Red Tint (Execpt Menus)

The Picture is dark red on my TV, and when I change the color temp it becomes green and then to no picture at all. But I can see that the backlight  is on as you have that light tint in the background. The only thing I can think is wrong is the LCD controller, I was wondering if I am right. Thanks in advance.

Have red tint in picture

It sounds like the color settings are out of whack, try going to the tv settings and reset them back to default. Then try changing the Red green blue values (RGB) in the color settings, simply lowering the red value might do the trick

Hi Lizzette,
I am afraid your problem is a little technical. Well if you know something about lcd tv technicals, the problem seems to be the T Con board and/or its connectors. Check the ribbon cables and connectors, clean them properly and and start the tv.If it is not possible or it does not work, please consult someone qualified to handle your set. Good luck.

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

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.

Green tint to picture.

Are you using the componant connection on your tv? If so, check the red, blue and green cable connections on both ends. They carry your
picture info to the tv. The audio is carried by a red and white cable. There should be 5 cables for a componant connection. 2 reds, 1 white, 1 blue and 1 green. I hope I have guessed your problem correctly and this helps you.

I can't seem to correct a tint problem. The tv turns on and the tint doesn't change. A friend says it could be a vidoe card?

Go to menue on controller, then Picture, then adjust Color and Tint to you taste. The color ajusts Blue and Green move left more blue move the slider right more green. The Tint controlls red. More red move right less left. Also chech Color temp setting.

There green tint in my picture on all my connections on vizio 47

Try shielded video cables and make sure you have your cables hooked up correctly. Sometimes you can conect them wrong, specially the red one. If you are using componet in on your tv, make sure the red one is not connected to your audio. The green tint is because you are missing red in your picture.

Samsung big screen tv model pcl542r has a green or red tint to picture

This is for the 50" Vizio TV,

It sound like the control board has a problem. There is two way to fix this.

- Upgrade the firmware of the control board, If you can find the firmware upgrade device.
- Replace the control board (I think this the best solution)

Here are the settings:

BD 1080p 24hz Output (HDMI): On (this TV can reproduce video at 48hz for accurate 2:2 pulldown)

Take time to get used to the settings, you may think the screen looks dull at first. The truth is most people have way too much contrast on their TVs.
These settings will also work for Cable or Dish hookups, in which case you may change the Noise Reduction option to Medium to reduce signal noise.

Too much green color

Problem solved. I tried playing DVD and the TV picture was fine. So I double-checked cable wires from cable box - one of the wires was loose (obviously it was the red color input). After tightening, the TV picture is good as new.
