    Ic chips?? I don't know what they are!! How would they affect the color?? How would you replace these chips and what would the cost be?? As for the cables, all cables were removed from the tv and before plugging the cables back in, i turn the tv on and still menu / pic was green. I also have been reading about these tvs. Could the pin wheel that spins / that changes the colors, be causing the problem?? If so how would i fix that. One more thing this may be it as well ( I copyed this from a web site!! ) -->

    If you own a DLP television and are experiencing a washout of your usually brilliant picture with a primary color (red, green, blue) overtone, a light engine could be just what you need.

    A light engine!! What is that?? How would you fix this??

    One more thing if the light engine is what holds the bulb as stated in a comment, i noticed when changing the bulb, there seemed to be a black burn mark on one of the panels!! Could this be the reason for my problem?? If so how do i replace the light engine and what is the cost??

Just got the price back for the wheel and engine (they come together) $1000.00 cdn. That is half the price of the tv. Unless you have the warranty which would have cost about $1000.00, LG want nothing to do with you. They were less then helpful.

We just had ours fixed. It is the colour wheel in the tv. Our screen turned green then orange before it died. Our servicer said it was caused by smoke and dust that settled on the wheel locking it up. He cleaned it and is currently looking for a new wheel replacement, he says it will need to replaced within the year, he is going to get back to us with a price, will add it here when we get it.

    Just got the price in for the colour wheel and engine (they come together) $1000.00 Cdn. Unless you have the warranty which was going to cost another $1000.00, LG wants nothing to do with you. They were less then helpful. Just deciding now whether to get a new tv, or pay the 1000.00 to fix it.

Contrast really dark but seems to improve after the tv has been on several hours

You may have a problem with the inverters in the unit, they are responsible for lighting up the back panel. Check or have checked the power supply voltage to the inverters, should be around 18-24 volts DC. Also leaky capacitors on the power supply will cause this issue as well as leaky or puffy capacitors on the inverter.

Only blue and green colors??

Go into your tv settings and check the colour/display section, you can also try the auto adjust to see if that solves the problem
