Too much green color

My TV is only a month old but the picture has suddenly gone "green" and lost its red tint. Tried changing picture tint control but helps only a little.

    My Tv is only 2yrs old and I have NO red color-everything is light green/yellow and blue.. It is a flat screen but has a back to it.. Nice 42" but what is making this color go bad already? I bought this from an locally independant SONY dealer and can't imagine why this is happening already....??? I tried to watch my Redskins play but not with Brown colors!!! Yeah the Red is Brown-dark Grn is light green-and the Blue is very bright... Don't like this at all! hopefully I can get this fixed b4 the last Nascar race in 2weeks! I have a call into this person.--but haven't heard anything yet..

Problem solved. I tried playing DVD and the TV picture was fine. So I double-checked cable wires from cable box - one of the wires was loose (obviously it was the red color input). After tightening, the TV picture is good as new.

Contrast really dark but seems to improve after the tv has been on several hours


Hi:
You may have a problem with the inverters in the unit, they are responsible for lighting up the back panel. Check or have checked the power supply voltage to the inverters, should be around 18-24 volts DC. Also leaky capacitors on the power supply will cause this issue as well as leaky or puffy capacitors on the inverter.

The colour has suddenly developed a green tint to the picture which I am unable to adjust The model is LE37R87BD


A green tint to a tv means it's lost its red channel (may additionally be blue channel). Check that your video cables are connected fully. If that's not the culprit, and changing tv settings doesn't work, you'll need to take it to a repair shop; so they can repair the "red circuits:" Note: there aren't any "red circuits" per 'se, but there are circuits that tell the various computer chips - in the tv - how to handle the image. By "red circuits" I'm referring to these.

Panasonic TC-P42U1 plasma. Lost it's vivid colors basic color is black and white and green and blue if tint color tone etc. Is turned up. However a blue ray video plays with full color. Could it be a lose...


I have an old Toshiba TV and was going to replace it with a new plasma because it has suddenly (the week of July 19, 2010) lost color. It has only green and blue tint. Changing the "tint" on the menu didn't help. The color comes and goes relative to nothing that I can measure, such as how long it is turned on, etc. Reading other complaints from owners of Plasmas, I am thinking it is cable related. I have Charter Cable. Playing a DVD, I have to readjust the tint back to normal. Hope this info gives clues.

I can't seem to correct a tint problem. The tv turns on and the tint doesn't change. A friend says it could be a vidoe card?


Go to menue on controller, then Picture, then adjust Color and Tint to you taste. The color ajusts Blue and Green move left more blue move the slider right more green. The Tint controlls red. More red move right less left. Also chech Color temp setting.

Color changed suddenly, no red, just green/yellow/blue


Sounds like the color wheel has gone bad and needs to be replaced. This is located behind the back panel.

Take time to get used to the settings, you may think the screen looks dull at first. The truth is most people have way too much contrast on their TVs.
These settings will also work for Cable or Dish hookups, in which case you may change the Noise Reduction option to Medium to reduce signal noise.
