LOST COLOUR: C29 F500DR The colour seems to have disappeared on my Wow by srs C29 F500 DR. I have a digital set top box attached. I cannot seem to restore colour. Any adjustment of the picture via remote control - scrolling through "Theatre" "natural" and respective settings does not help.

Hi,

To my knowledge, a Hitachi Hitachi C29-F500DR is a 29incher Flat Screen CRT TV. A couple of ideas:

  • check if your version has a PAL/NTSC selector in the menu. Largely dependent on your region/location, switching to another color system would exhibit this problem. Try selecting the other to what it is currently using;
  • as in most TVs, there would be a color circuitry involved that uses a crystal. This crystal is responsible for establishing the color and at times do go bad.;
  • it may be an issue with the digital set top box, pls try using this box on another TV.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have done the color convergence and the picture still seems to be a bit off and now the whole screen seems to lean down on the right side.


Is the static colour bent also? It shouldn't be.
It takes hours some times top set these things up.
Cover one colour up with a piece of card whilst setting another to the donor colour. Usually Green stays static for this purpose.
Hope that helps.

Hi I think my Hitachi C29-F500DR TV has a fault. At first I thought someone had inadvertantly set the timer but the power indicator is not blinking 10 seconds on, 1 second off. It is blinking 3 shorts ,...


Blinking lights indicated any component failure in the TV .

You can also try a hard reset: Unplug TV from AC mains and remove all cables from TV. Wait about 30 minutes and replug to AC power and redo the cabling. Switch on the TV and see if it works..
If its within warranty Please give to the company.....

If you would like to attempt a DIY, you will need a service manual to guide you. You can find one here:

The solution is now to let your kids play with the remotes.

The color red no longer works on my Toshiba 65HDX82 rear projection television. I am trying to figure out if it makes sense to repair. The rest of the TV seems to work fine.


if the tv is digital (high def) it does make sense its just a bulb most likely. if its analog it does not make sense. for a plasma or lcd with comparable picture to rear projection will be 5-6 grand and the colours will be comparable. less money will get you less than perfect colour and black levels on your set. only if your set is digital if not its a very different story if you need more help let me know i can guide into the right decision

Grundig colour tv lost digital channels


I'm sorry, but I have not worked with Grundig TV's, radios yes, TV's no. However, The menu shouldn't be hidden. The first thing I would try would be to UNPLUG the set from the wall, wait about a minute and plug it in again. This action should reboot the micro processor. On some sets, there are two levels of menus, main and advanced. You would want "channel setup" and /or channel scan. You may also look in the back of the manual and see if it list some service dealers that you could call for help. I hope this helps.

RCA DLP HDTV POOR COLOUR - TOO MUCH GREEN


Hello:
It sounds like your light engine needs replaced, should be around $400.-600. depending on who does it. I have seen the lamp cause similar symptoms but not that likely.
