Re: tv has green dotes in pix.

So after six weeks in the shop, the TV is beyond repair. The part to fix the pixilating problem finally came in, but the picture continued to get worse throughout their testing week. They tried repairing the motherboard, or what have you, and were unsuccessful. There is now NO VIDEO at all. They suggested packaging it up and sending it back to Westinghouse, a previous customer was charged a $350 flat fee to repair it. I would rather scrap it. Why spend that much more on a TV that has proven to be a problem child. Screw it! I'm getting a LG!

Re: tv has green dotes in pix.

As stated before this seems to be associated with the overheating of some component. On my set I need to check that the backlight is set to a low level. On power up it automatically adjusts to a level above maximum and the green screen will appear in a few minutes. I took the back off to increase airflow and that helped some. Now the problem only occurs rarely.

Re: tv has green dotes in pix.

I have the same problem with my LCD-32W1. One thing that helps *a little* is to reduce the saturation from the default of 50% to 30%.

Re: tv has green dotes in pix.

Without a fan on sitting directly behind, it'll only take about 15 minutes before the screen bugs. Not to mention, the televison generates heat when off, so uplugging when not under use helps. Other than that, i'm trading it back in through Westinghouse for another one. Hopefully its not problematic or the overall product is definately trash.

My Toshiba LCD suddenly started showing green pixels throughout the picture. It can really be seen in the darker areas. It will also outline dark areas with green pixels.

Does this only happen when watching TV? Or on every input on the TV?

Ensure the connections between your cable source and the TV are solid and in place. Let me know if this fixes it, if not we'll move onto other solutions.

Sharp TV - no picture, sound is fine

Hope this is an LCD TV. If it is, show a torch light from a distance and see whether the picture can be seen. If yes, the backlight has gone bad. If no, try changing the input device to something you know works. If nothing works, this is a case for a qualified service technician.

I have a samsung2333hd and want to connect a dvd player using the connections marked pr(red) pb(blue) y (green) when i connect them all i get a redish pink screen then when i connect two of them i get...

OK no problem here. I can help. First reconnect the DVD Player to the tv using the Compoment cables. Match Green to Green,Red to Red and Blue to Blue.. If this is done correctly then you will have normal looking picture. If the picture looks like it is missing the RED color then switch both Red cables. The pix should look normal. Then connect the RED and White audio cables to the audio inputs . Now the Pinkish color is a result of the DVD Player not being set to the "Progressive" setting in the DVD Player Menu. It will help to connect a set of COMPOSITE cables from the DVD Player to the TV's Composite Input. Those are the Yellow,Red and White inputs on both the tv and the DVD Player. This will allow you to see the DVD player menu in case you cannot see the menu while in the Component input. The Pinkish picture should go to a Normal picture.

Picture & sound go off for 1-2 minutes, then return.

The most likely the TV has a power supply related problem.
I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, you can purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

Periodic tv screen blackouts

The problem is your cable box. I know you said you replaced it, but I work on TV's everyday and, sorry to say this but cable box HDMI outputs have serious issues, like no or intermittent sound and video. I have seen customers exchange their cable boxes 5 and 6 times and still have the problem. Your best bet is to use the component outputs of your cable box, visually you will not see a picture difference between component and HDMI when using a cable box. Your other solution is to get satellite; I have NEVER seen an HDMI issue with a satellite box

Green/blue vertical lines, no pix, screeching

This is a cap problem too.There is a third 1000 microfarad cap near the other 2 I would suggest you replace while you are in there.The instructions are very good and if you follow them carefully it should be an easy repair.If you have a friend who does some electronics and are unsure of your ability it will be duck soup for anyone who can solder.
