Having problems with your Projection Televisions ?

The color on my tv is turning green. It's not totally green but it's becoming green. No matter how I adjust the colors it remains the same with too much green. You can't see the true colors clearly especially white. The picture in general is darkened a little bit.



Answers :

The change in color is purely a light engine problem. Darkened pix in your case is lack of blue. Lamp replacement will not solve that problem. Aging lamp will cause darkened picture, but the low light output will be uniform over the three colors. It will have the effect of low brightness, not a hange in color fidelity.
It is very common for the color of the lamp to change as it nears the end of it's life. Depending on the bulb itself you may see yellow, green, or blue shifts (I have even seen red/orange). This is due to the diminishing output of the bulb and while you can make some adjustment you will eventually hit the point of failure. The bulb could in fact last several more weeks or even months depending on your use and environment. It is probably a good time to start searching for a replacement now so you can replace it as soon as it dies or just replace it now if the color is too bad to be worthwhile.

I have a 63' projection TV. The picture is off. All of the lights are working, but the images are fuzzy, and you see the image tripled. The three images overlap each other in red, green, then blue. It seems like the colors have to put back in sync to form one clear image. Also I can see a bow effect at the top of the screen.

My Olevia LT26HVX has suddenly lost color control. It has been set with color temperature on Middle for all the time I have used the set. Yesterday when I turned the unit on, the picture is hot pink or magenta with little blue and no green. If I set the temperature to Cool, the color switches to mostly lime green with solid blue areas appearing as black. If I set the temperature to Warm, the screen picks up more blue but has an overall muted green cast with no red. If I select "user" for color

Hi. Lately my tv is turning on but once the video signal is recognized, the screen goes green with vertical lines. Then the set turns off, turns back on, and then I may see a picture but the colors and images are all distorted. After about 5 min of off and on, it would finally correct itself. It does this with any input such as my xbox and dtv. Now it is at the point where it keeps trying to turn itself on and off to seemingly correct the input signal.
