It sounds like the red cable on your component input is bad, one way to check this is press menu and see if the menu bars and letters are the right color. if they are then you may have a cable issue, if they are bad you may have a bad DG board in the unit. This will probably require a service technician. Hope this helps

This is normal and is a color calibration issue.
For correct color, NEVER use the "WARM" setting. Why? Too red. You cannot get REALISTIC or ACCURATE color using the "Warm" setting.
Since we are speaking of Samsung, first avoid the "Flesh Tone" adjustment. When things are set correctly there is no need for this adjustment. It is a quick fix and not for the "discerning eye".
1. First, access the "Color Temperature" menu. From here select "Cool2" or the coolest temperature setting.
Note: For Samsung use "Cool2", or if not available, "Cool1". Samsung has inadvertently increased calibration confusion by issueing TVs that have just "Cool1", and TVs that have both "Cool1" and "Cool2" :0[
For other brands, use "Cool", or "High", or "+6500k". Anything lower artificially reddens the picture and compromises detail.
2. Now return to the color settings and reduce "Color" to between 30 and 40 (on a 100 scale). The sweet spot is just near the place where the color rapidly washes out.
3. To round out the color palette, move to the "Tint" adjustment and ADD a couple (3-5) clicks to the GREEN.
Adding the touch of green is what is needed to take out the last bit of "pink" and will make all the tones and all colors display properly.
I hope this helps!

This is for the 50" Vizio TV,
It sound like the control board has a problem. There is two way to fix this.
- Upgrade the firmware of the control board, If you can find the firmware upgrade device.
- Replace the control board (I think this the best solution)

I had the same problem with my 60V500A about a year ago. The screen got a red tint in the center and the image was fuzzy in that area. A new lamp didn't solve the problem. I did some checking and found out that the original light engine used in this model had a cooling issue that could cause the light engine to overheat and distort the LCD panels. My warranty had run out more than a year before this happened so I figured I was screwed since the light engine was so expensive. I decided to call Hitachi tech support and see if I could get a discount on the cost of a new light engine since the cooling problem was a known issue for this model TV. I calmly explained to them that I was aware of the cooling issue in the light engine and that I felt like a $4000 TV should last more than two or three years. Tech support gave me the phone number for my local authorized Hitachi service center and I gave them a call. Once the technician confirmed that it was the light engine that was the problem Hitachi sent him a replacement light engine at no cost to me. I was WAY past my warranty period so I still had to pay for the labor to replace the light engine. $300 for labor was a lot cheaper than buying a new light engine or tossing the TV and buying a new one. I have to say that Hitachi earned my respect for admitting there was a problem and doing what was needed to correct the problem more than a year after my warranty had expired.

Has the lamp ever been replaced? As lamps age they get darker screens. First though check to make sure the TV settings aren't accidentally on a dark setting. Go into the menu and see if increasing the brightness helps.Different picture modes like movie, games, vivid have different brightness settings vivid usually the brightest.
