Question about Akai LCT3785TA 37 in. LCD HDTV

Red color appears missing from display

Hi, The tv was working fine, and we needed to disconnect the cable box to move it.  When we reconnected the wires, the tv display was awful. The color is really yellow.
It seems like the display has blues, yellow, and grey, but no red.  
I've tried adjusting the hue, saturation, etc, but it seems to make no difference regarding the color of the images on the screen.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Thanks for the note, Josh. We'd checked the cables and they were tight.  While we were checking, though, we decided to put them in the second component "line" (as opposed to component 1) and the color was back.  I'm guessing something must be wrong the that part of the tv.
    Take care and thanks for your time!

Push your red component cable firmly in the tv and the cablebox and you will be good to go.

Thanks

It has a loud buzzing noise how do I fix that problem?


It appears that your connections are not correct. Please switch off the TV. Disconnect all the cable. Wait for some time. Reconnect cables one by making sure you strictly follow the color code i.e. that red pin cable must go in the red socket. After all the cables are connected switch on the TV. Loud buzzing noise is due to wrong connection of cables especially the Earthing/Neutral

Hi my name is Eric,
I hope I can help you with your issue ,
Do you have a cable box?
 First thing i think of is you need to reboot the cable box by unplugging it from AC power, then reconnect it. (then reboot the Tv same way if haven't done that yet either) then its time to try it with AV cables
to make sure the cable box is not bad. using the red/white and yellow cables
then testing with another source like a DVD player, common sense will tell you if its the cable box or the TV.
If you've already done this or don't have a cable box (sorry),

The only thing in the TV that can cause you to lose audio only on TV is the SAP mode.
 
Hope this helps, if it has solved your issue please click accept
But if you have more questions please respond and I will reply asap
Thanks

Green Screen


Hi, how is the cable box hooked up to the TV? Is it HDMI cable or componet (red/green/blue) ? When you say totally green, do you mean the the picture is only green with the other colors missing or every color looks green ?

Is tv an HD tv


Yes, mostly all new displays are at least 720p which display a great picture ! However, coax cable is the worst possible cable you can use. Your best bet for HD from the cable box is to use component cable. These are the 3 RCA type colored cables, red, green and blue. You will also need another two RCA cables for the audio, which is usually red/black or red/white. If you have a surround sound receiver, then you will not need the 2 for audio to the TV. These 2 would goto the receiver or you can use a better digital coax or optical cable for audio.
Also, HDMI from the cable box to display is a more expensive cable which will give you HD but doesn't always look better then component on some HD cable boxes.

Lack of red color


The quickest thing to check will be the cable. Make sure that the cable is seated properly on both ends. (pull it out and reconnect it on the TV and on the source end as well.) What happens if you wiggle the cable or bend the wire just near the connector end? If the screen flickers or appears better when you do this, you should obviously replace the cable. (HDMI, Component, etc..)

If that does not work then the next thing to check will be the female connectors themselves within the TV/source housing - I've seen many DVD players have poor solder joints so that repeated pulling of a cable or other torque causes an internal connection to go bad. Does this happen with all sources (DVD, CABLE, SAT, etc?) You should first check the cable that connects directly to the TV.

My picture has a green and blue hue to it.


After spending a day trying to fix the TV, I found out the problem was actually with my cable box. I have an HD DVR recorder. We unplugged the cable box and plugged the TV directly into the cable in the wall and it worked. So we took the cable box back to our cable company and got a new cable box. (Can't live without the DVR!!)
