Question about LG 42LG70 42 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Connecting any outside devices (Wii, DVD player) to my LG 42LG70 results in black and white (Wii) and/or reddish tinted picture (DVD player). Switching to different inputs into the back doesn't cure anything. Are the inputs in the back faulty?

Have you tried another cable or checked to see if the existing one is pushed fully in? This can sometimes be the cause of what you've described.

How to set perfect color on samsung 48" led smart tv


To achieve true life like colors, the primary colors need to be balanced to produce a perfect black and white picture. Turn the color level on the tv to 0 and tint to middle then look at the picture - does it have a reddish or other "coloration" to it? Then set the individual color levels (if your TV has these settings) of red, blue and green to balance out and get a true black and white picture. After that, bring the color level up slowly until the facial levels are natural - not over driven as seen in most store displays. You may need to use tint control slightly.....
One other way - There is a dvd from Disney called "Wow" that aids in getting your set to optimum display.

Hitachi RP CRT Gone Red On All Inputs!!!


I want you to do a simple visual check of something that will tell me what the problem may be.

Go to a channel that is in black and white--old movie and tell me what color the screen/picture is.

You can also turn the COLOR in the customer menu all the way off and look that way.

What we are trying to see here is if TRACKING is set correctly or has changed. If the screen is somewhat to medium reddish it may be an adjustment outside of the customer menu.

Let me know what you find--I have seen several of these where the black and white picture was somewhat red--the idea is it should be as close to black and white as possible--if red is the predominant background color the picture will look reddish.

If this has helped and you confirm the red instead of black and white picture--I can tell you a easy way to adjust this.

If this information told you something you did not know and helps you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

Connect the Wii and the DVD player to different ports on the TV to and any other device to the port in which the Wii and the DVD player were connected to check if the issue is with the port.

If other devices also display in black and white after connecting them to the port to which the Wii and the DVD player were originally connected then the ports require servicing.

Invalid format


Try rechecking all wire connections for proper placement and fit too and from the tv.
Try adjusting the video format on the DVD, flip through 480p and 1080i. See which format works best with your tv. Do the same with Wii.

See if this helps.

Poor quality pictures


Check your picture settings, the wrong setting for the time of day or object can definetly throw off the appearance of your pictures. Plus, you may have accidentally set it to "warm" instead of auto or black and white, etc. Warm pictures have a reddish tint to them just as the cool have a blue tint. Also I have found the "night setting" only takes really good pictures if you are close to the subject otherwise it is pretty dark!
