Question about Vizio 42 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

My 42" LCD took a lightning strike a couple weeks ago and now the color RED is completely gone - everything looks blue and green. I am guessing it has something to do with the control board. Is this fixable or is my TV shot?

Not a projection set if 32 inch---If looks like blotches try turning set with it on to see if they change--if so you may have not plugged the degaussing coil (usually a two pin plug) back in when you did the repair--it goes on the power board.

Color in tv is very green you cant tell what suppose to be what i was watching cartoons with kids and the animal that suppose to be red was black i tried adjusting color temp and every thing even resetting...


If your using a tuner for your TV channels and you are using component video cables make sure that the red cable is not plugged into the audio socket. red blue and green cables should all be plugged into the "component" input on the tv not audio.

Video is taking on a red tint which is getting worse over time


check the cable connections. look at different inputs. VGA and Component cables have the colors split, so if it's turning red, green, or blue; it's likely a cable or connector.

Tv lost color


Your problem most likely is on the signal board is my guess. If your not a technician it would be in your best interest to have him check L2C60 on the signal board.
