Toshiba 32AF41 Power up Problem and Green Screen

My flatscreen TV will startup with a purple/magenta screen. The picture is all there. In as little time as 1 hour, as long as a full 24 hrs, it will then go to a green tint over the whole screen. The fleshtones won't be true, they will have a slight red/orange tint to them. I can get blues, etc., but the whole screen stays with the green tint. It doesn't adjust out & it doesn't matter what input or type of device is plugged into those inputs. Solution(s)?

    henlopen, Thanks for the info. The only other thing that I realized is that my daughter had placed a center channel speaker that is supposed to be shielded on top of the set. Could the tube be magnetized now and just need a manual degaussing? The set is about 4-5 years old. I know I can replace this set for about $550. Would it even be worth having a tech look at it at this point, taking into consideration that TV resolution is going to be upgraded in 2009? Thanks, Again.

My first inclination would be to check the picture tube, especially if the set is over 7 years old. If it is not that, then anything from bad solder connections to capacitors or a defective IC could be the cause. If it's over 10 years old, replace it. No use flogging a dead horse.

Panasonic Viera PC-to-TV Via VGA has Purple Tint

Purple Panasonic PC>TV Problem:
The VGA cable uses three primary color RGB channels.
Red, Green, and Blue.
The picture is made up of pixels or dots arranged in a grid along the "X" horizontal axis and "Y" vertical axis.
The computer mixes the intensity of each color channel to create a unique color per pixel.
All RGB at 100% creates white.
R+G creates yellow.
R+B creates magenta, ie purplish.
G+B creates cyan.
So a purplish tint sounds as if your Green wire has no signal, which may indicate a faulty VGA cable or VGA socket.
Put another way, (R+G+B)-G=R+B=magenta.
So try another VGA cable, spray all socket pins with "Servisol " or similar contact cleaner.

All 0%=Black; All 50%=Grey; All 100%=White.

I have a 32af41. Green horizontal retrace lines show up on screen then it faint at first then more and more apparent then it flashes green and turns off. I can only turn it back on by unplugging the tv...

These are caused by the ageing of the tube and the final video transistor for the green cathode - the cutout voltage on the final video board is no longer doing its job as the tube heats up so the current passing thru the tube goes up until the X-Ray protection kicks in and cuts the power completely.
Resolder all the components on the video board and try to readjust the cutout voltage - there's a semiadjustable resistor on the video board, right next to the video power transistor - this will give you a few more months of use.

I purchased a 32" flatscreen

A tv this new probably has a warranty. Take it back and let them fix/replace it. It's their headache with the warranty.

Have a model 43A10 toshiba tv, has a purple color at very bottom of screen about inch tall. When i go into the menu, looks like writing is not lined up on the lower options of the menu. and partly up...

you either have a color purity problem or a convergence problem. purity can be effected by electro magnets in power supplys of audio amps and subwoofers too close to the tv

Convergence is the ability of the red green blue to drop on top of each other. can usally be adjusted via remote control. Please claify and repost.

Green and purple vertical stripes on our TV screen

The cause is one or more shorted transistors either on CRT board or on main or both. The colors are red,blue and green, you have a transistor for each and a bias trans. check each there are 6 in all.
