The pixels on your screen are controlled by a matrix composed of switches that turn off and on to produce light.

They are located vertically and horizontally, row-wise and must function together to produce everything from black (everything turned on so no light, or very little, can escape) to layers that represent the three colors that are used alone or in combination to produce the millions of possible shades of each.

One of the switches that controls one of the vertical columns has failed and has turned on the entire column that allows red to display.

The problem switch (a semiconductor combined with many) is permanently turned on, probably part of the screen assembly itself, and was placed with others by robots.
The pin spacing on these 'chips' is very small and often makes the assembly unrepairable.

While LCD panels have fallen hugely in price, you may be looking at a parts cost (labor is probably not too bad) that may make you decide to replace the set.

Unfortunately, the once-proud Emerson name has sadly been degraded and there is a lot of their electronics available from companies that specialize in 'refurbished' products, an indication that they have a large failure rate.

What could have gone wrong with my Emerson flat screen tv that would cause


You could have a Power supply problem or either the Horizontal or Vertical Control amps are faulty. If you are not Electronically capable or trained, rather take it to an expert as the removal of these two Power Modules is one hell of a job to remove and you could damage the circuit boards and Printed circuit.
If I am correct, in your case the Power modules are STK975-811A as they are commonly used in flat screen TV's.

I have a 32" Snyo TV serial #DP32642 and my Emerson VCR that records on tape cassets. I can not get the VCR to display on the TV screen. I do not have a cable that will fit any connections I find.


The Emerson VCR has output connections for left (W?) and right (R?)audio and video (Y?). Your Sanyo TV may have inputs for the same in which case you would make the appropriate connections. Some operation of your Sanyo remote has to be found that will allow your videotapes to be seen on the screen

Negative type images in pink & lime green


I had the same problem....turned out it was the "lvds" cable that runs from the mainboard to the lcd controller board. Simply remove the tape that holds it to the back of the backlight housing and also remove the foil shielding tape from the connector on the lcd controller board.
