The problem is in the LCD controller board is overheated because the power supply unit is at the bottomof the TV and the heat rises upward to the vent on the top of the TV. You can verify that is hest problrm by running TV with the back removed and have a small fan blowing on the top secdtion of the TV where the LCD controller is. This how I fixed my scrambled picture after warm up (I added heat sinks to the IC on the LCD controller board) : http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/LTV-32W3HD/
You can try it if the board was not badly damaged already by the heat. My has been running great for over a month now.

The skin tones on people's faces are different colors and shadowed and I can't find my owner's manual.


its ok, pause the screen and get a wax crayon the colour that you want the peoples faces to be and colour over them on the screen. when you have fully enjoyed that frame scrub it off and pause the video 1 second later. eventually you will make the whole movie like this the exact colour you want it.................

Vertical color bands take the place of the picture.


I sent my question to the "solve your problem for free" on this website, so I was expecting some "free" advice. My finances are such that I can only ask for free advice. I did see someone who had a similar-sounding problem, and there was a mention of two possible main boards that would fix the problem. I was hoping to know which board would most likely fix my problem, since the TV is less than two years old. If I take it to a TV repair person, I want to have a fairly good idea how to fix it, and what would be the approximate cost, so I do not get ripped off.

Tv goes off after it warms up AND pic. goes SHORT and WIDE prior


im betting the vertical deflection is failing, a capacitor that is in the vertical deflection circuit may be dry and as it heats up shorts shutting the tv off.

Picture problem


I have an older Mitsibutishi 52" HD 1080. I recently upgraded my cable box to DirecTV HDTV. When I change to format to view in 1080 the TV goes from full screen to what seems to be wide screen with a black bar on the top and bottom. If I change the format to 480p I get a full screen; but the picture has a "redish tint" over it as if looking through sunglasses...I tried everything in my TV manual even call the cable company. Any suggestions?

it depends on what your using it for, adjust colour tones to what you think looks natural, contrast between 80-90, keep sharpness below 30. just have a play around till you find what best suits the source material.

Bad picture


Sounds like a dry solder joint. When the tv is on for 4/5 mins the crack warms up and the gap spreads. When you turn off it cools and when it warms up it starts again.

Check for leaky capacitors in the vertical section of the TV or cold solder joints.
I would also check in the power supply.
Good Luck.

Screen split with black bar through center, top of picture shows in bottom


It sounds as you desribe, the vertical output IC and or the b+ feed capacitor off the Hi voltage transformer feeding the vert. IC its required voltage. Not a really hard job to replace, but not for a handi person to do. This should be left to the professional, as there are no user serviceable parts inside this set and with the HI voltage and the safety issues its best to call somesone to assist you with this repair. Good Luck
