Recent problem with picture

Just recently my tv picture appears dull. The picture comes in fine but seems like the colors are off, sort of an overall greyish tint to the picture.

The first time I noticed this , I turned the TV off and later that day when I turned it on it was back to normal. However, a day later the same this has now happened again.

I hope this does not mean the plasma gas? life is over...I t has not even been 2 years yet! I

Would appreciate any suggestions or ideas.

    I have a similar problem. My 42pc3d is about 18 months old. In the last
    couple of weeks I have noticed a decrease in color brilliance, loss of
    sharpness, and overall dull display. The inputs are a Cox STB, and a
    Sony HT. Thinking maybe a power-off reset mght help, I pulled the power
    plugs on all. I returned power after a couple of minutes, but that
    seems to have no effect.



    Is there an internal color/display test that can be activated by a certain button pattern?

    Just turns off and then right back on..only happens every so often, maybe once every couple,days. Seems like it might be some sort of interference

Sony 60" HDTV Plasma WEGA....Picture Problem


My guess is that you're not missing the color it just appears muted... That problem is a common one in both the 50 and 60 inch models. And if you change video mode with nothing hooked up you'll see a faint color where none should be...
That's simply dust in the optical block on one of either the red, blue or green lcd panel. Wipe it down with a non-linting cloth and a "light" amount of windex and you're back in business...
But check it out by switchin through the video modes with nothing hooked up.. The faint color you see if the lcd panel that's having the most problem and the one that's muting your green.

Sony 60" HDTV Plasma WEGA....Picture Problem


Sounds like your component cables may have come off its contact point. Check to see if your cables have become loose. Pushing them back in place should take care of that but check at the source output and the TV's input. Red Green Blue, when ever one of these 3 come out of contact the TV will produce a color hue relevant to what color remains in contact, looking faint and discolored. If you do find a loose cable connection, inspect the contact ends and squeeze lightly to restore a snug fit but don't do it to hard or you may damage the prongs.
