Typical problems with lcds.. When they get hot, the color tends to shift. The reason your seeing the problem on the red and green is because of a lack of blue.. Makes sence if you think about it as blue is the hottest wave of light, so the blue panal is getting too hot or possibly the polarizing filter on the tv..

Lamps can cause this somtimes as they tend to shift twords the higher waves at the end of there life.. So if you have another lamp, try it out.

Another possible cause is the driver board for the lcds.. If there is a chip that has a small short, it will overheat as well and cause it not to function properly. I see this all the time on lcd projectors. 1 of 3 things.

The colors on my monitor are faded/bright always changing.


Right click on your desktop (not an icon but a blank space), click "personalize", click on the tab on the far right(settings), click the drop-down menu on the left side above the colored banner, make sure it is set to the most colors(usually 32). If you need a walkthrough for Vista I can provide that as well.

TV picture is red.


Normal color picture is composed with 3 colors R-G-B (Red-Green-Blue). Picture turns Red means: Missing Green and Blue colors (many reasons: bad contacts, projector tubes dead, and other...). Try to give some "tabs" to diagnose ... I don't know what is the type of your Projection TV, how long you owned it, to have more idea.

Faded colors


If the picture is dark or messed up too bad, the magic focus will not function, are all the primary colors faded? RED GREEN BLUE? You might have a bad CRT, would call a service man to check out.
