I would be happy to answer your question today. The model Tv you have has a common problem that can make the picture fuzzy and over-saturate a color. If you are having the problem on all inputs and have made certain all your connections are good, then you probably have a defective Optical Engine. This is a very detailed repair and the part is about $500. Labor to install the Optical Engine runs about $300 or you can try it yourself, but I do not recommend this because of how difficult the repair is. The part can be found here -
