We have been using HDMI input on our LG 50 inch HDTV for over a year
now. Yet recently the picture turned "Pink" (black hues shown as pink)
with HDMI but not component input. I was interested in your response
to a similar problem - where you said that every time this has been a failed pwb. What is the fomal part name for "pwb", and is this board an easy thing to replace for the common electronics DIY person - and where would you recommend getting this part? Thanks for any help -Mark

Try plugging devices into the inputs like DVD, Blu Ray, VCR, Game console, etc. If the screen goes pink on all inputs or at least all the ones you plug anything into (at least 2 different like HDMI and RCA) then it is probably an issue with the screen itself. However it is hard to say when there is so little to go on. information like is there sound or no sound, do you see shadows, outlines etc. or nothing at all, does anything happen when you press menu buttons, will help to see what the problem may be. Secondly how old is the TV? Is it still under warranty or just out? what happened before the screen went pink. what type of TV is it LCD, LED, Plasma, CRT?
If the warranty is still valid go back to where you got it from os contact manufacturer and if warranty is out by about 6 months or less contact manufacturer and try your luck All TVs should last several years at least.
I have the same problem. I have an LG lcd tv as well. I have my cable box connected to via hdmi into the reciever then from reciever to the tv via another hdmi cable. I can watch tv and like the problem above see the pink dots on boot-up but I can't get the home screen to display.
That issue is with one or more of the board that drive the plasma screen. If you have a warranty, you will want to call LG for a free repair.
Sorry, but to trouble shoot that issue would require some TV tools and knowledge of electronics. There are several boards involved with processing the picture image to the plasma screen. I hope this information has helped you. Good Luck.
1.This issue sounds as though the TV connection circuit has an issue. 2. You have changed the DVR and the HDMI cables and you still have an issue with the video (pink screen) indicates a video circuit issue ( improper voltage or current) at the video section of the circuit. 3. This will require some troubleshooting by a qualified tech. 4. To make sure, try connecting another properly working LCD TV to the cable box or DVR an check.If you get a picture and sound properly it is the TV. 5. Usually a cable box is QA'd (quality assured) by the company and will not be sent unless tested 1st
I work as a contract technician for Vizio, and I can tell you from experience that replacing motherboard is one of the only solutions to this problem. The other solution if under warranty is to replace it. If you experience red, blue, or green pixels where dark shades (like nose, eyes, clothes, etc), call Vizio and accept nothing less than a full replacement! I have had situations where I replaced motherboard and within 2-3 hours the pixels return. Hope this helps.
I have seen several LG plasma that have a pink picture and everytime it has been a failed control pwb. This bd is located under the assembly that houses the main digital bd. The main dig. bd is the one with all of the inputs.
I had a similar issue, try adjusting the advanced settings on the DVD player.....I can't recall which settings it should be on, but when I adjusted them on my upconverting DVD player everything worked fine after.
