It is obviously difficult to provide an acurate reply / quote by email.

I would estimate a repair costs of about £150 - £200 or so, perhaps less if you use reclaimed parts.

Your TV sounds as though it requires a Y-Sustain PCB.

Hp w2007 why does the computer go pink everything that is green is now black


All the colours on the screen are created by "mixing" the 3 "primary" colours (red, blue, green).

Once the production of "green" ceases, anything that should be "100% green" becomes "100% black",
and every colour that indicates some percentage of "green" becomes a mixture of just RED and BLUE, i.e., various shades of PINK.

First, try the monitor on another computer (desktop or laptop). If the problem persists, it's time to replace the monitor. If the problem vanishes, it's the video-card in your computer that is not generating GREEN, or it is the "data" cable between your monitor and your computer that is not transmitting the GREEN request. So, you can try replacing the data-cable, or try replacing the video-card.

My monitor resolution colour is changed to pink.


Check the data-cable between the computer and the monitor, and try a different cable.

Or, try connecting the monitor to a different computer, to see if the video-card in your computer is not working correctly.
If necessary, replace the video-card.

Colours on your monitor are produced by "mixing" the 3 "primary" colours: red/green/blue in various proportions.

Or, if part of the monitor that produces one of those 3 primary colours has stopped working, then the resulting "mix" will have too much RED/PINK. Fix/replace the monitor.

Hi my monitor has bright colours on it and i cant make out what im doin its really bright and hurts my eyes


Turn off the pc but leave the monitor on. unhook the monitor from the pc. the screen SHOULD run a "self test" with a moving white green red blue box. if that box is on a bare black screen and there are no bright spots or cracks or anything weird looking, then the screen itself is ok. If however, you see odd shades of blue and pink and it looks cracked or scratched or has lines in it, then it is time to replace that screen.

My sony grand wega gives a blue shade on the black background which is the problem


HI, Check the menu set up of the TV. There should be an alignment feature that aligns the blue, red, and green colour projectors. If the blue is out of alignment that is likely why you can see it on the dark backgrounds. The set up normally puts a white cross on the screen and you select each of these colours and then move the cross over the white on with the arrows on your remote. Once all are aligned correctly you shouldn't be able to distinguish between different colours and hopefully this should get rid of your blue shade.

Samsung LE26R7 4BD, approx 4 years old, colour distortions


Check all of your cables on the back of the tv and your sources such as Cable,Sat box and DVD palyer to make sure they are fully inserted into the input and output connectors. Some times Component cables will work loose and you end up with a missing color. Temprature changes can affect intermittant connections. If that does work then you have a bad Main bd.

Toshiba TV colours wrong pink sky, blue clouds and green people??


Inside your TV there is like a loop of insulated wirings the loop around the screen. This is to demagnetized the tube. There is a varistor which looks like a thick coin with two leads on it, or sometimes it looks like a flat ceramic capacitor that control this loop of wire. When you first turn on your TV current goes through the loop of wires to demagnetize the TV then the varistor shuts off. Sometimes this varistor fails, causing smeard colors. You can also demagnetize the screen without opening the TV. Using a hand held demagnetizer. It can be purchased at some electronic parts store.

Distortion on people faces


What does a dvd look like played on it? If it's the same then there is something wrong with the TV. If a dvd looks good - no color problem - then it's the sat box that needs replaced.

Color shift problem with 330GS


This is because the RGB filters in the camera are not perfect, and there is no one "green" colour. The green pixels pick up a wide band of colours, and are somewhat sensitive even to red and blue, especially near where green shades into red.
