This actually prabably being caused by a fungus in the tubes. This model is knowen for fungus to grow in the tubes and cause a pink or red tint. If you are interested in reparing this yourself you will need to change the coolant in the tubes. I have a PDF file that will instruct you on how to complete this. If you have a repairman do this for you you will most likly pay $300-$400 to have this fixed.
Let me know what way you want to go.

Green tint


Go to a channel that is in black and white and turn color all the way off.

Screen should be a black and white or gray color.

If green there is a fairly easy way to adjust--let me know what you find and I will tell you how to attempt the adjustments.

Please adjust TINT control of Video Settings in Menu that will adjust color tone of TV. I do not think this problem is related with Lamp because TV screen does not have any color blobs or spots.
Above solution is for Sony KDF-55WF655 model TV, if your model number is different, let me know.
Thanks.

well there is usually a tab in your pictuer adjusment screen that says reset. but if your tv doesn't have that tab i can give you a few adjustments.

first- your tint should remain neutral. so if it has a color scale of 1 to 100 it should be on 50
second- your contrast should be about 80% or what your eye likes. look at the black tones
when you are adjusting it.
third- your brightness would look good about 65% pay attention to whites in your picture
fourth- your color all depends on how your eye precieves it. so adjust it with out making the colors to
neon or too dull
fith- your sharpness should be turned down to about 15% to much gives the picture a grainy texture.
sixth- your color temp should be neutral or normal. if the tv gives numbers the selection that says 6500k is the best choice.

you could always buy a calibration disc for about $20 and that could help you even better because now you are using images targeting the individule adjustment.

you could always pay to have it profeesionally caibrated. ISF certified techs will come too your home and do all the adjusment with special color filters and light sensors to give it the best picture possible according to your room. i know best buy charges $250 for it

those are just some suggestions. and the adjustments i give you work greatest for me, so if you dont like the overall out come you can always tweek it to your eye. make sure you use a digital picture with a lot of color when your making your adjustments. i like using disneys "the incredibles"

60" TV Tint does not work


Your TV most likely has one of two possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

Hi, I have just purchased the Samsung LE37A559 tv. I have been trying to get the best colour settings brightness colour contrast tint backlight etc. Is there a optimum setting for all of these ? I am...


The problem is that everyone has a different "taste" when it comes to these settings. I like to turn the color all the way down to start with. You should (if the set is factory adjusted correctly) have a black and white picture. If it's not B&W, then there's something inside the set that needs adjusted and you should get a service call. Then I adjust brightness and contrast to get the best B&W picture. Then I turn the color up until I'm happy with the color level, then I adust tint.

Hope that helps

Bad color


Turn the color level all the way down and see if you have a good black and white picture. If your screen isnt black and white it should have a predominate tint to it. then turn the screen control for that color down to achieve the best black and white picture. then adjust your color level that should help.

Sony Rear Projection TV Model # KP 53N74


I have had a similar issue with a Sony 52" circa 2001 tv. It was bad and then got better. The only problem now is that when I plug anything into the component 1-5 (but not 4) the screen is fuzzy. The DVD is plugged into 4 and it works fine. I tried plugging something else into that and it showed up in black and white. Very frustrating. Fancy TV if you only watch cable or a DVD. All other modes show up fuzzy. Sony recommended a tv repair place in St. Paul but they want around $400 just to look at it.
