Sir,

You did not say what type of TV you have. A flat screen plasma, LCD or a CRT (older picture tube type)? The fact that you can get a black and white picture just about rules out a problem with the plasma, LCD or picture tube display. The fact that a color picture is only displayed in shades of blue and green points to a lack of red. This can be as simple as adjusting the tint, or can be caused by a defective red video stage, usually the output stage, or a dead color oscillator. In the latter two cases it is a circuit problem and would require repairs. Service on TV sets as you may know is no longer inexpensive. Find the tint adjustment first, the kids may have gotten it way off. Put the bar in the middle, or if you have a reset option which returns all picture settings to the levels set at the factory try that. Good luck

Is this a projection/plasma/CRT?

    You switched something from PAL/NTSC --> RGB or the other way around?

    Try a hard reset first..Unplug the TV from the wall socket for about 2 hours and try again. See if you can adjust the tint/color through the menu options as well. If you have tried to correct the color in the menu and had no luck then the problem can be as simple as adjusting the video
    amplifier or the amp could be failing. The only way to know for sure of
    what the problem is will be to have the circuitry checked to find what
    is out of specs. A small shop will often charge less than a large
    repair facility.

    Should you require further clarification,
    never hesitate to ask. It would be my pleasure to clarify my answer to
    your question. If after reviewing the above information, you have
    additional questions, I will be glad to answer them.

    Cheers!

I just need to adjust the resolution on this TV. NO ONE at RCA could seem to help me. Thank you.


hi,
did u mean to adjust the picture setting then go for the following
1 press menu on the remote
2. using down arrow select picture quality and press ok. available options in picture quality and its use is listed below. you can use it according to your preference.

Basic Picture Control- Displays the five slider controls for adjusting

the way the picture looks.

Contrast Adjusts the difference between the light and dark areas

of the picture.

Color Adjusts- the richness of the color

Tint Adjusts the balance between the red and green levels

Black Level Adjusts the brightness of the picture

.

Sharpness Adjusts the crispness of edges in the picture.


When exiting this menu, the Save Personal Picture Preset choice list will

appear. You can choose either Yes or No. If you save the settings as a

Personal Picture Preset, the TV will store the settings so you can reselect

them easily if someone changes the settings.

Picture Presets Displays- a choice list that lets you select one of three

preset picture settings: Bright Lighting, Normal Lighting, Soft Lighting

or Personal Picture Preset. Choose the setting that is best for your

viewing environment.

Auto Color Displays- a choice list that lets you turn on the feature that

automatically corrects the color of the picture. (This is especially useful

for tracking realistic flesh tone colors as you switch from channel to

channel.) Choose On or Off, depending on your preference.

Color Warmth Displays- a choice list that lets you set one of three

automatic color adjustments: Cool for a more blue palette of picture

colors; Normal; and Warm for a more red palette of picture colors. The

warm setting corresponds to the National Television Standards

Committee (NTSC) standard of 6500?K.

I was recently given this tv and the picture has a red tint. So much so that it is unwatchable. I have tried adjusting the color and tint but it does not change. Any ideas?


There is a red drive issue going to the picture tube. Being that the problem could be anywhere from the signal processor to the picture tube itself it is hard to say exactly where the problem is. There are a lot of parts between the signal processor and the picture tube. Have a shop check it out for you. Thanks for using fixya.

F25216bc RCA 25 inch TV. Color is distorted with a heavy red tint


You either have a bad CRT or a Shorted Red Output IC/Transistor. One other possibility is if
someone turned the Screen Control down if it is accessible from the back of the set.
Hope this helps,

Green tint I can't seem to fix


Hopefully someone on here has a manual and can tell you exactly where the tint controls are. Also need to try adjusting the color level, turn it clear down so you have a black and white picture.
Is the picture still green over the screen with the color control
set clear down to black and white? If it does, you might
have an issue with the green gun going out or problem in the
circuitry to it.


By the way, the best way to adjust the picture settings on a
tv are to first turn the color control clear down, then adjust
brightness and contrast for best black and white picture, then
bring up the color level to where it should be and adjust the
tint for best red/green ratio.

Screen Green Tint


Turn down your color and see if the screen has a normal black & white screen. If it doesn't then the CRT is bad (picture tube). If it is black & White then you have a either lost your red or blue.That problem will be in your video driver circuit of which a service center can handle.
