    I also have the same problem. Green and red color distortion on the screen. this happens mostly after the tv has been on for about a half hour and mostly effects flesh tone colors. Any help out there?

    I also have the same problem and my vizio was sold to me as brand new and when i got it home it was out of warranty. of course i did not realize this until i had the problem. White colors also come in very weird as well. like some sort of rainbow. but its not all the time.

The same thing happened to me Twice!. First time it was under warranty. Now it it out and Vizio has not interest in helping me. The first time the repair man changed the motherboard, which worked for about a year. Looks like I will be buying a new TV soon, but certainly NOT a Vizio, they are junk
Anyone out there know how much a motherboard costs?

JUST WANT TO KNOW THE COLORS OF THE RAINBOW AND WHAT ORDER?


Although I am not sure what this has to do with dryers, the color spectrum of a rainbow runs from purple to yellow. The visible spectrum runs from black to white with ultraviolet and infrared beyond the visible spectrum. Purple, violet, blue, red, orange, and yellow are the colors in a rainbow.

After moving my tv is now mixing colors and is blank in some spots..you can make out shapes of whatis playing on tv, but you can't see what it is. The pictures also looks tilted


leave it for 5 minutes and power again. if not comes out, try to use magnets to remove that rainbow colors. but its better to call a professional technician by degaussing your television.

Rainbow screen aiwa tv,, screen shows different colors like rainbow// brushing a magnet infront of the screen fixes the issue temporary


Picture tube is magnetized. Manual degausing is required. already you have done this.

Since you say it is reappearing, you have to check the following.

1. Relocate the TV or relocate if you have placed any tower speakers
or home theater speakers close-by.

2. Check whether auto degauss functioning OK. In the MENU
check whether you switched off auto degauss option. If it is OFF
enable it to ON.

3. Finally re orient the direction of your TV and watch the rainbow
effect. Switch OFF TV, wait for 20 mts, and again switch ON.
Repeat the process. It should disappear.

Magnetic toys or any other devises using magnet will cause this problem.

I just had a rainbow of colors on my tv screen...i thought it was a problem with my TV...however the screen went the "sign off" screen (verticle lines-red/blue/green) Then all of a sudden the picture came back and all was back to normal again.
