Outline of images turn florecent lime/green!

I too have a simliar issue with my Vizio. After set has been turned on for about an hour, the images on the TV begin to be outlined with a florecent green/lime color that wont go away until I turn of my set. After five minutes or so, I turn the TV back on and things return to normal. But after a day or two, It will continue with the same problem. Please help. Thanks.

Hello,

I found out that the main board gets too hot after few minutes that the TV is ON and that causes the interference of voltage, So, I don't know what causes it but my Vizio Tv turned green also and I installed a desk FAN behind the TV and kept it cool. This solved the problem, but as soon as I turn the FAN OFF, TV gets hot and turns green again. I spoke to VIZIO Customer Service and the people that I bought it from; Vizio knew about the problem and offered to fix it, but the wholesaler that I bought mine from is willing to swap it for another one.

I hope this would help to continue using the TV untill the problem is fixed.

Thank you
Shane

Hello,

I have seen this before. It is a tricky problem it's caused by two distinct problems causing one symptom. The first problem is with your backlight and the driver for it (this includes the ballast and inverter) and the actual LCD screen (the elements on the edge are not reacting fast enough to voltage changes.

A quick fix would be to replace inverter board that would stop the overdrive problem, now for the bad new the get rid of the green haze you may have to replace the screen, and that could get costly. I am only goin on what I have seen, in the past with this problem there may be other causes, however these will require the use of test equipment to do the job properly. I would me the suggestion that you have a qualified TV technician repair this TV for you.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

I had the same problem....turned out it was the "lvds" cable that runs from the mainboard to the lcd controller board. Simply remove the tape that holds it to the back of the backlight housing and also remove the foil shielding tape from the connector on the lcd controller board.

Leave teh TV unplugged for a very long time and runa fan on it during that time, LCD's and plasmas are very hot, most likely the issue with yours is overheating or simliar, or maybe you shorted something when unplugging it. But the first opstion is free, before getting it repaired

You have a bad LVDS cable (or two). It's a well known issue on these (I do warranty repairs on these for a living). It's not an easy repair job, but any qualified TV repair place should be able to repair it in about 1.5 hours. Parts should run about $50.

Green outline/shadow on dark images or backgrounds


LVDS Cable is corroded - This is the cable the provides video from the TV Video Process board to the LCD Panels Timing Control Board.

Honestly, if you can take the TV back do so. If not, Service it using the manufacturer warranty

Check the cable connections and/or replace the cables to the AV2 input.

If replacing the cable doesn't provide a solution, try running your DVD through the input. Since it works fine now, you would be checking the input AV2 by putting your working DVD. If the DVD plays with no problems, the input is fine.

Also try the VCR using coax into the TV instead of RCA into AV2. This will give you some idea about the condition of the VCR.

I suspect either the VCR or the cables.

hey jhaskins,

i think one of the pins on your cable must be broken. the cable that connects to the tv.

if its just the tv without using any connections then i think you have a faulty tv.

good luck

Hi


Looking at the manual http://www.alteclansing.com/downloads/EUR/VS2121%20manual.pdf page 3 of the pdf says Connect the lime green 3.5mm stereo cable (hardwired into the right satellite) to the lime green input labeled ?FRONT? on your sound card. So your right speaker should have a cable with a green end that plugs into your standard audio out jack If you have multiple outputs and don't know which you are set up for, then turn the speakers on and up, put a long song on, and plug that green wire into every jack on the PC! If you've got no other issues you'll hear something! Good Luck
