Sounds like the linear adjustment is out of whack.....most projection type tvs, projection, lcd, plasma, have to be correctly aligned so that the color grids overlap each other to properly display the correct hue being created. you'd need the service code to re-adjust it, or have it serviced. also possible that one of the color grids is bad, but if you have all three (red,blue,green) colors showing on the entire screen area i would doubt it

    ONLY projection tv's need ANY type of alignment. Any flat panels (LCD/Plasma) DO NOT require any type of alignment as they are already aligned through their substrate at the assembly plant. It sounds to me like you have a GREEN sub-processor or driver issue.

Why does titanium white paint turn pink?


add drop of blue and this should solve the problem,

for future reference - what paint? aquarel? pastel? oil? acrylic? tempera?

solvent sometime can be a problem, if you use varnish - varnish naturally turns bit of yellow, sometime pinkish tint, but you need to check if solvents are compatible.

there is heaps of variables in paint mixes, you need to check purity of the pigment (rutile ore contamination's will tend to discolour pigment anything between brown and pink for example with the age), you need to check opacity of the paint (how transparent it is - background may cut through it and sublight it red), you need to check viscosity (light viscosity and dry pigment in wet on wet will "suck" paint from the background), all of these need to be check.

if you have more questions on the subject - you need to provide what medium you use and what is exactly effect.

hope this will help you - do not forget to vote...

Check the cable going into the back of your monitor and the cable from your monitor into your computer, one of them is most likely loose.

Samsung DLP Facial Colors off after changing color wheel


Do you mean that red and blue are reversed? If so, you may need to remove a jumper, see end of linked article. Pinkish-yellow or orange sounds like a good description of skin tone, but perhaps too intense. If the color is too intense, can you just lower the color level with the color control? Or can you just change the tint with the tint control? Otherwise, see http://www.jangro.com/electronics/samsung-dlp-replace-color-wheel/ including the comments at the end.

Yellowish tint on faces, shadows, gold backgrounds


Check the white balance setting of the camera. As you have a yellow cast, it could be because you are using it in Fluorescent (or Tubelight) setting. Changing this to Auto should solve this problem.

Greenish tint


Not sure if this is the solution, but I believe the color polarizer filters have been burned. I have a yellow haze circle on mine and I'm pretty sure that's the problem. In my case the blue filter is burned, leaving the red and green stronger yeilding a yellow blur.
