Follow the directions exactly:

If I am reading the manual correctly, here are the steps:

1) Press the "Menu" button.
2) Press the ">" key until you see the "Video" menu.
3) When "Video" is highlighted press the "OK" button.
4) Then use the "V" button to go to the item you want to adjust.
5) Use the "<" or ">" buttons to adjust that item to the desired setting.
6) Press "OK" to exit.

Hi,
Your TV has few factory presets picture modes. If you want to adjust picture settings you need to select custom mode to adjust color, contrast, brightness etc as per desire.

On my laptop screan it gon a bit dak and i ned help 2 fix this


Hi , I think your laptop brightness settings had been changed. So try this to increase and reduce the brightness , contrast. Select start-> control panel -> appearance & personalization -> display . There you will have options like Adjust brightness , Adjust resolution etc., on the left side of your window. You may adjust in this way.

CONTRAST ADJUSTMENT


it is best to shut the color level to the lowest setting then try t balance the screens to achieve the best black and white picture. then turn up your color level. Your brightness level should also be set to 50 % then when you adjust for the best B&W picture. You will have better color and brightness when you reset your color and brightness levels.

I am further looking into ur problem..

Goodluck..

I cant get the color right. its to red??? any help? i did notice with the back cover off, there are 6 adjustment screws


yes! those are the screen and focus adjustments. 3 for screen, 3 for focus. try this. go in menu....turn down color, brightness, contrast all they way down. you should then have no picture, but in your case a little red. then go to back of tv and turn those 3 screen adjustments all the way down. slowly turn the screens back up until you get barely a picture. because remember, your brightness and contrast is all the way down. the picture should be dim but seeable and with red, green, blue adjustments, make it a black and white picture. when balanced..... turn up color , brightness, contrast in menu. enjoy!

Need tv service codes to adjust sub brightness, contrast, grey scale etc.


no need for sevice codes. you should have dials on the unit to make adjustsments. the only adjustment you need to make is the contrast. if the colors are to bright take the tv back to b/w and retune

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

Apex rear model?


I would say it's a adjustment you will need, is the convergence aligment ok, to adjust this you will need to find the adjusment block in the front, this is a black unit about 4" x4" and has lot's of wires that comes in.
On this block there will writing on it focus, and screen, well your half way there.
Adjust the green screen control downard to see if it adjuses your green problem if it does, here how you adjust the rest.
First go to your menue, turn the colours off. yes off.
next put contrast to max.
next turn your brighness to 40%
Nest ajust the screen control until you no longer see any trace line of the colour you or seing so that at the end product you het the best black and white picture you can. This will give you the end resolt for best picture posible.
Adjust the other colour after, to see if you or close to the corect adjustment go back to the menu and turn contrast down you shouldn't see any trace line.
Another problem people don't understand this unit have to be clear once's every 2 years.
This I won't explain it's a very long process if done right . Rear projectors has to be clear because with time you will notice the picture looks like you have catarack. or white filtering of the picture. This is when you know it need's cleaning, I do it all the time when I go to customer home, yes I do house call's. I think I'm the last one out there, most shop what's the tv in the shop mostly to be able to control the price there about to hit you with and if the customer doesn't pay there just sale it, they have the control and not you.

I hope this help, keep in mind it's very expensive to have tv repairs, but you have to pay, this what keep's tech going without them, well you can just imagine.

Adjusting visuals on the TV does nothing


This problem may have been coming from the Flyback Transfromer or the Tippler, you have to be a technician to adjust that! if you are, well first thing is to put the TV ON and sent up all the level to max for the brightness & Contrast, then after try to adjust the Flyback screen voltage for hi bright, if it work there, try back now to see if you are getting any control of the menu of brightness & contrast to work! please be careful, there about 28K volts to 35K volts, this can kill anyone... IF YOU ARE NOT A TECHNICIAN PLEASE DO NOT OPEN THIS TV.... RandyXi CriticaL PaniX
