    My problem is much the same. The whites are yellow and the blues are towards black. The adjustment settings have little to no effect when changed. the bulb is fresh. When the problem first started I just shut down and restarted but that no longer works.

Actually when JVC tv's turn green the light engine is going bad. I repair lots and lots of these. The engine can be rebuild for about $500 installed. IT is a known problem for us tv techs. I have 1 engine left if you know a tech who can install it. These sell for $300. This fixes the problem which is the green chip color breaking down and smearing. All whites look green. The best way to tell is to turn the color all the way down and see if you still see green tint. It works best on a black and whit picture if poss. but any will do. Usally it shows more in one section on the picture but is green all over. my number is 270-996-7629 if you have any questions.

Screwy in what way. splochs..purple areas...on a blue screen what is color like. on a all white or mostly white what is it as a tech we would put a raster generator on it. to see which areas are effected. there are case on this particular model where a technician has to reset the color with a software upgrade. this requires special software and computer interface.

Mitsubishi Projection TV: Menu is in perfect color, Video is gray

The gray color indicates that all of the colors are working properly. For some reason, you are telling the set that there is no color. How are you connecting to the set? If the set is expecting component video (RGB) and you are sending composite (yel connector), it will appear this way for example. Please update this with your connections and we'll figure it out.

Lost color but PIP still works in color

Check the menu for a "facotory reset" option. That should reset everything. Mind though, that ypu'?ll probably have to reconfigure any other settings as well.
