Check on initial settings in your menu; most makers provide a 'factory default' selection that will come pretty close.
It may also have 'Warm' and 'Cool' settings for color that provide either vivid color or less intense.

Could wiping our 42" Vizio TV with a towel make our color change on the TV?

if you used any cleaner with chemicals in it that would leave streaks that cannot be removed, clue to this would be with set off you should be able if that happened to see it on the screen with the set off.

Otherwise there are a lot of things that can and do go wrong--a suggestion= you can post a video question here, take a video and upload it along with the brand and model number of the set in the text part of the question and post it in Flat Panel TV sets--if you want you can in the title also mark it Attention SD tech which is my user name here--if I see it (I do not miss too many) with the video I will at least be able to see what you have and make a suggestion on this problem.

this video feature is new here on Fixya so be patient.

Can't get full screen on Vizio VA19LHDTV10T

This is either due to some incompatibility or change of format of picture. Also the color system should be same like PAL/SECAM etc.

Red coloring book picture on the vizio!

Sounds like a main board issue--set has a board that controls all info and communication inside the set===faintly possible are also if this is on only part of the screen other boards but main sounds like your problem---All the digital processing for the set including what is on the screen is found there.

It might be helpful to do some research via Google====one place I like to look for info and parts info is this set by model number is there they will have a list of the boards and prices also----

Also Google the model number with "problems" to see what is out there.

My Vizio 42 in. LCD TV has red lines or outlines on the screen. It goes in and out, but doesn't hardly go away. It happens no matter if the cable, dvd or xbox is on. I have tried messing with the settings...

would most likely be a problem with the mainboard does the menu of the tv look normal it should be blue. if the menu looks red like the video then it is most likely a bad mainboard if you were to post the model number i can find the part number for that mainboard

Vizio plasma Tv Model P42Hd ,Tv has gone into some sort of test pattern on screen, has a color band of several colors from left to right on screen. The colors move up and take the position of the one...

with set unplugged, hold down channel up and down on the front panel at the same time while you plug the set in. Power light will go amber like it is in the off mode and when you hit the power button the set should come up and be normal.
