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.

try not to do repair yourself. the tv holds high voltage even when unplugged. you could KILL yourself. If red is fading the convergence ic will not help. you need to replace all the guns. red, blue, and green. usually each tube or gun is around 300 dollars each.

How do I get rid of purple and green wiggly lines? The black screen that appears when switching between channels was green a couple of weeks ago, that problem stopped after I unplugged the set for a while....


You have a bad LCD control board,It overheats and causes colored lines,screen to darken,or the color go floresent. Also check the power supply for bad caps.
when you have it apart.They usualy go bad on these tv's. It will cause the tv to take longer to come on.Or you have to hit the power button several times to get it on.

DARK SHADOW EFFECT UPPER CORNERS OF SCREEN


I would check for dust particles before I attempted any type of repair on the unit.

Dust particles will appear as dark spots that are larger than the size of an individual pixel. It must first be determined if the particle(s) are on the LCD panels or the screen.

There green tint in my picture on all my connections on vizio 47


Try shielded video cables and make sure you have your cables hooked up correctly. Sometimes you can conect them wrong, specially the red one. If you are using componet in on your tv, make sure the red one is not connected to your audio. The green tint is because you are missing red in your picture.

Too much green color


Problem solved. I tried playing DVD and the TV picture was fine. So I double-checked cable wires from cable box - one of the wires was loose (obviously it was the red color input). After tightening, the TV picture is good as new.
