How to Fix a TV When the Screen Is Green


A TV is calibrated by the factory to provide a "standard" picture that attempts to appeal to the vast number of buyers who take the set home. To adjust a TV picture that is too green, you must first enter the hidden "service menu" that technicians use. Adjusting the colors to remove the green cast will save you the cost that would otherwise be incurred from a TV technician coming to your home. No special tools are needed, nor any expertise in how the TV works.

Press the power button on the remote of a TV whose picture is too green in order to turn it on.

Press and hold down the "Menu" key until the manufacturer's logo appears on the screen. This could take up to a minute or more. Release the "Menu" key when the logo appears.

Immediately press the "9," "8," "7" and "6" keys in this order. Press the "Enter" button on the remote to enter the "Service Menu" screen.

Press the "Menu" button to go to the second of the two "Service Menu" screens. Press down on the "Down" arrow until you highlight "Color Calibration." Press the "Enter" button to enter the "Color Calibration" screen.

Select one of the color bars on the screen. Adjust the color by changing the values of the color bar by pressing left and right on the "left" and "right" arrows on the remote. Repeat this procedure with the other color bars as well. Stop adjusting the colors when the green cast is no longer present.

Press and hold the "Power" button on the remote to exit the "Service Menu" and save the adjustments you have made. Turn the TV off.

Sony du-42pz60 has colored bars on screen


1. unit seems to be in the "test" mode
2. some how it has defaulted to this mode.
3. Disconnect all device to the TV and then power unit on.
4. If tv turns on without color bars then a device connected is the culprit.
5. Try each device separately and see which has a colorbar displayed.
6. if the latter doesn't isolate then it is the unit itself and need a tech to look at the main board for video malfunction -- test

You turn on the tv then it turns off right away with no picture displayed could probably used new screen too


The repair of this unit will be determined by the status of the high voltage on initial power up. You need to do a few tests in order to narrow down what the high voltage is doing. You will need someone to assist you.

Unplug the AC cord. Remove the rear lower cover from the tv. Make sure the room is quiet. Put your ear inside the tv being careful not to touch anything metal, although most metal objects are ground. Next, have someone insert the cord into the AC outlet while listening very carefully. What you are supposed to hear is a click which is a relay and high voltage snap up. If you do not hear a swishing sound, which is the sound of high voltage have someone press the power button on the front while you are still listening. If you hear the swishing high voltage sound come on, it will come on and stay on, or collapse. Repeat the test, unplug the cord and plug in the cord to confirm the high voltage is coming on and staying on or coming on and going into collapse.

If the high voltage does not come up at all it means that there is a basic high voltage power supply problem and an experienced technician needs to guide you through a high level repair which is above the scope of this discussion. You may want to contact a skilled technician.

If the high voltage comes up and collapses right away, which is the most common fault, it means that the unit is entering the protection mode. The protection mode is most commonly caused by convergence or vertical sweep system on that model and big screens in general. These repairs can possibly be done by consumers with basic electronics knowledge. If you want to repond with test results we can supply more information on repairing the convergence or the vertical sweep system.

If the high voltage stays up then the likely fault is a power supply problem is muting both the video and the audio causing the unit to go into protect. Consult a service manual, track power flow though out the unit to determine which circuit is impaired.

Scan not functioning. Provides NO ERRORS.


Unplug the power cable from the All-In-One when there is still power in the unit.
Also unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
Leave the cable unplugged for atleast 1Min time.
And connect the cable directly to wall outlet with out any surg protector (if you have a different outlet try with that)
Then before connecting the cable to the All-In-One press and hold the # and no 9 button do not release the buttons untill it comes up with a mesage as reset (or if the screen goes blank then release the keys and turn the power on)
Then press the setup/menu button and then press the right arrow key till you see print reports> the press Ok and scroll to print test page and check if it is functioning properly.
Then try a color or Black copy and check.

Good Luck
