Well you most likely will need a technician or if you have technical ability........the Y sus board which operates the drivers of the plasma screen.........in some instances it will need both the y sus and the z sus boards.........the repair could range between $300 and $500 . be sure to go to an LG auth service. If you would like assistance on how to repair your self,let me know!!

Picture is hard to see


If the model number here is correct and set has not been "serviced" in a long time-----unplug set and remove rear cover= clean the 3 large black lens top side of chassis (hard to miss them) as if they are dusty the picture will be darker and somewhat dull looking---they are attached to the 3 picture tubes this set uses and are the light source for the picture.

Fixing the picture in my Philips rear projection tv


As far as mostly red--turn color to zero and examine screen--if not gray or black and white it may need the screen controls adjusted.

Dark---with back cover off clean the three lens this model has--they are the light source for your picture and if dusty picture will be darker and somewhat dull looking.

Answer is based on brand/model number listed here.

Two common issues here---one is convergence where picture is somewhat or very 3d looking---I can if model number correct tell you how to fix that and second issue is some models get black lines that look like interference which is a more difficult problem to deal with.

Let me know which best fits your issues.

The picture color is very red. Sound fine.


I have a solution for this depending on what you tell me:

Go to a channel with the program in BLACK AND WHITE, TURN THE COLOR ON THE SET TO ZERO.

What color is the screen? If it is red or somewhat red (not black and white) I CAN TELL YOU HOW TO CORRECT THIS--I HAVE SEEN IT BEFORE AND IT IS A TEN MINUTE FIX--NO PARTS WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED.

Confirm not black and white picture---respond with a comment here and I will tell you exactly what to do and how---- I have seen this problem before.


If this helps you, rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

The color is all red.


I want you to do a simple visual check of something that will tell me what the problem may be.

Go to a channel that is in black and white--old movie and tell me what color the screen/picture is.

You can also turn the COLOR in the customer menu all the way off and look that way.

What we are trying to see here is if TRACKING is set correctly or has changed. If the screen is somewhat to medium reddish it may be an adjustment outside of the customer menu.

Let me know what you find--I have seen several of these where the black and white picture was somewhat red--the idea is it should be as close to black and white as possible--if red is the predominant background color the picture will look reddish.

If this has helped and you confirm the red instead of black and white picture--I can tell you a easy way to adjust this.

If this information told you something you did not know and helps you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

Color is bad especially colors like orange and the white on peoples teeth is black most of the time andthe picture is not clear


HI, thank you for visit fixya.
Common problem on this set .
Picture tube liquid is dirty.
Mostly in crt green and crt blue.
Do you have electronics skills?. If so, open the TV ( back cover), you will see green,blue and red gun. After turn on your tv, select any channel or video signal, cover with piece a paper two guns at the top ( any), and see how look the picture in the front, try one at time, ( press menu on remote control and see leters-clear). I am sure the green and blue will be no clear. all the time red tube is fine.
REPLACE COOLANT LIQUID PROJECTION ( solution).
I will be here for any quetions.
Thank you

Black and white screen...


The color wheel can cause a black and white picture but not the jumpy or negative look.
Those symptoms are usually caused by the DMD assy which drives the color wheel and is somewhat expensive, most of the time you can purchase the whole Light Engine which includes the DMD assy for the same price.

Picture covered with 1/2 black screen


Next time it does it instead of turning it on/off to correct it,try taping on the side just to see if it reacts if it does you will be looking at a loose conection in the horizontal drive circuit.Seek assistance from a technician to correct the problem.Right now it should no be expensive.
