    Thank you!

    I accidentally posted this question under the wrong TV model - but it's similar, just bigger I think...

    I actually have a Toshiba 62" HD DLP Projection - 62HM15

    I'm assuming your answer would still apply.

Hi,

Understand that I am not in the room with the TV. I can only give you information based on previous experience with this type of set.

I would diagnose this as a bad light engine. This is not a cheap part unfortunately (over $800) and a quick search of the web will turn up a lot of Toshiba DLP owners with the same problem. The light engine can be replaced by you if you are reasonably technically minded.

The only wise option would be to call Toshiba and feel them out. See if they will offer you any help. This model is a couple of years old so I doubt you have a warranty but they may be in a good mood and meet you half way with the repair costs - stranger things have happened to people who kick up enough of a stink.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

My screen has a green tint that will not adjust out ?????


The light engine on this TV uses a 3 lens DLP system. You probably have a section of the DLP engine that is dirty or going bad. I have one that is overly yellow the way yours is green. I tried to clean it out, that helped but did not cure the problem. The actual DLP lenses are nearly impossible to get to. That is a good thing because they are very fragile, too! It is watchable but not perfect. Life is hard... with the age of these TV's watch classified ads or Craigslist. Sometimes you can find them for a very low price or even free! They are very easy to work on and really a pretty good tv with working correctly.

Green tint on sony kds-r5xbr1 rear projection tv. picture in hd is still great looking just green.


What media device are you using and how is it connected?
If its an external device (that is your not using a built in blu ray player or such) and your using compost video (it should be three wires for video, blue, green, and red) check the red wire on both ends. Most of the time this is the problem.
If your using a HDMI cable, or the above does not fix the problem, try replacing the cable.

If its only a slight tinting there should be a setting on your tv for fixing it. (Usualy named Tint)

Screen has green tint, it is an LCD 42 inch


First of all, that is not an LCD tv. It is DLP, which is a common mistake because the picture is very similar. DLP tv's use a high-power lamp that reflects light off of thousands of tiny mirrors into a spinning color wheel which gives the reflections color. Each little mirror is one pixel, which can be any color depending on the hole that it goes through on the color wheel. The color wheel may be spinning slower than normal, which could make all of the light go through the green filter on the color wheel, and give your screen a green tint. Have a trusted mechanic take your tv apart and dust the inside. If that doesn't fix it, you may need a new color wheel or bearings for it (that help it spin). You should not pay more than $200 for a bearing replacement on this tv.

Thanks for asking.

Rear projection HD Hitachi Ultravision always has greenish tint


This is what you're going to do, Turn on the Tv and go to the service manual, if the green tint is still there, you have a defective dmd board, but if it's no there, then you have an issue with your video board
