Pixel color fade

On occassion when the tv is on, there is a change in the pixel color on top of the tv screan which displays a lack of color and uniformaty in the pixel on the screan. It's usually about 5 inches by 12 inches wide. The tv needs to be shut off because I'm noticing it's hot in those areas where the pixel discoloration appears.It display a white to green color on the affected area.

    I began having green "speckles" (the repairman's term) after over 3 years of use. Fortunately it was still under the extended warranty. However, after 8+ visits and replacing every circuit board in the TV the problem remains 9 months later. They now say that they will replace the panel, but I have been waiting for them to get the part for 2 months now, and today the green portions of the screen encompassed most of the top portion of the screen.

    The repairman thinks that they should just replace the TV but they keep wasting money with more parts and labor. In the meantime I have lost my patince and have threatened Pioneer with legal action if they do not repair/replace ASAP. What good is the warranty if they don't stand behind it. Based on this experience I will never purcahseanother high end Pioneer product and will not use Best Buy for such purchases either.

Adjusting the Color Temperature

Color temperature refers to how red (warm) or blue (cool) the color palette is. This control helps you to adjust the color settings on your TV. You can change the color settings by following these steps:

- Using the TV remote, select settings and look for a menu item labelled video or picture.
- Select Color Temperature. A slider should appear that allows you to slide between cool and warm colors. The colors might also be labelled red or blue.
- Slide the settings away from red/warm and towards blue/cool using the remote control. You can leave the slider at the point where the color is most pleasing to you.

How can I fix my this ? Pixel colour fades on screan , though battery is fully charge , how can I fix this please?

some computers will fade the screen automatically when on battery power. on windows systems, you can change those settings (normally) by going to Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Power Options -> Edit Plan Settings (beside the option in use) -> change advanced power settings -> Display (see screen shot)

I have a 42 in Sanyo DP42647. If there is something like a logo or words that stay on the screen for more than a few seconds it looks like it is burned in. It eventually fades but by the time one fades...

Cause of screen burn typically is pixels are no longer showing full range of color. Typically a shop would cycle screens or blocks of very bright colors alternating colors to unstick any pixels not showing full range of some color. Setting tv back to factory default then adjusting could help also turning up brightness. Change color settings from cool to warm could help. Could also be a refresh rate. Verify tv is set to display at same rate as input device like cable box set to output 1080i while tv native is 720p. Just because there is a pic doesn't mean they are synced.if tv has to convert signal from 1080i to 540i then resize to fit 720p tv it may slow refresh rate tv is trying to display progressive scan image but not enough data is coming in so it redisplays previous image on every other line.and new data on every other line.
solution is check output video settings of source to match native resolution of tv. Hd cable box this is common as tech sets output to high resolution 1080i most inexpensive tv are 720p

Screen is displaying Red background color with glittery pixels effect around the figures

Please change the T-CON board, if it did not fix the problem, you may have a defective LCD Panel.

I adjusted the color on my Display settings and now I can hear but cant see out of range Megahertz?

click start control panel display desktop you can select a different desktop from the drop down list
or a browse button where you can select different pictures this may vary depending on your operating system

also you can change the settings for more or less pixels or from the drop down list pick the appropriate level of color range or troubleshoot also select advanced then general dpi normal size,larger size or custom settings
always click APPLY after making any changes

hope this helps


Phone has begun going 2 a white screen & the pixels are messed up

Yes, its one of two things, the LCD (display) is faulty or the LCD ribbon cable that links the top half oh the phone to the bottom is failling, a common problem on samsungs, but a cheap easy fix.

There are horizontal color bands (red, yellow and purple) scrolling from the bottom to the top of my 32" insignia flat creen TV. i've owned the set for a year and it has been perfect up till now. anyguess...

sounds like you have some lines of dead pixels, is this an LCD screan or a plasma screen? if it's LCD then it is dead or stuck pixels, check your owners manual and there should be a section on stuck pixels if its and LCD tv.

Lines in screen

They are stuck pixels...

There are some that say sending strong images that change from to color to color can help unstick them, but I say only dissassembly and cleaning of the contacts (there should be 2 ribbon cables, one for top, one for side) that probably got dust in it. Call it in under warranty if at all possible.

try to adjust Vs & Vsc within 5% of their spec on the power supply board when you notice the problem.

Have you tried flipping the pictures so you can troubleshoot it from the larger screen?
