I solved the problem by connecting a VCR to the TV and surfed the tv channels with the vcr remote, some how the new video input cables and the vcr solved this problem for me. I just set the tv on Video Input 1 and use the VCR. It wasn't as hard as I thought the problem was, just poor signal.

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..

Check the manufacturers suggestion on bulb replacement, if you are using an aftermarket brand, this could be the source of your issue. Good Luck

Picture is cloudy and wont come in clear


has it been inspected for proper lens and mirror cleaning? or by cloudy you are referring to some kind of weak signal. when the cleaning is needed the picture comes in dim but with definition and the correct color, tint though gives the impression is to bright or very low in contrast.

Replace your color wheel! So glad I did this, fixed the TV and the wife is very happy! Go to Encompass Parts http://www.encompassparts.com/ Where it says login, click on the words "guest login" and you won't have to register. Click on US Dollars at the next window. In the next window, copy paste this part number - 3250701500 and click the little magnifying glass. Don't worry about model number. Checkout and yours will be on the way. Mine was $102 shipped! The brand is Vivatek and it works perfectly! Thank you to whoever posted this! We found another for over $189 but decided to try this. I kept pulling the old one out, cleaning and oiling which would last only a few weeks and got tired of it. Anyone who needs help installing please email me at scott.d.krieger@gmail.com and I will help you out. The TV is worth repairing. We plan to get a spare in case we need it. Hope this one lasts longer than the original wheel.

Tv color not bright enough and just replaced lamp


Clean the small mirror in front that projects the image onto the rear mirror. The Rear mirror always stays good but the front small mirror gets dusty and the colors and bright levels get affected and appear dim.

Old hitachi


the coolant most likely needs changing in the CRTs. Another possibilty is the mirror has become dull. use a damp soft cloth to clean the mirror then dry also clean the CRT lenses . Dont use windex. You will be amazed the difference just polishing the mirror can make in picture quality. Looking into the CRT lenses while they are on will tell you if any groth are present in the CRT coolant chambers.
