First adjust the contrast level 25 percent.Now see there is any improvement. If the performance is well there is a problem in video section. May be capacitor leakage like 180v supply filter, and coupling capacitor in video section.

I have a 42 in Sanyo DP42647. If there is something like a logo or words that stay on the screen for more than a few seconds it looks like it is burned in. It eventually fades but by the time one fades...


Cause of screen burn typically is pixels are no longer showing full range of color. Typically a shop would cycle screens or blocks of very bright colors alternating colors to unstick any pixels not showing full range of some color. Setting tv back to factory default then adjusting could help also turning up brightness. Change color settings from cool to warm could help. Could also be a refresh rate. Verify tv is set to display at same rate as input device like cable box set to output 1080i while tv native is 720p. Just because there is a pic doesn't mean they are synced.if tv has to convert signal from 1080i to 540i then resize to fit 720p tv it may slow refresh rate tv is trying to display progressive scan image but not enough data is coming in so it redisplays previous image on every other line.and new data on every other line.
solution is check output video settings of source to match native resolution of tv. Hd cable box this is common as tech sets output to high resolution 1080i most inexpensive tv are 720p

COLORS ARE OFF


First of all check whether it is the same condition on different input devices. Try adjusting the settings. Sometimes the color format might have got changed. Try changing the settings to factory default. If nothing works, this may need attention by a qualified service technician.

I have a problem in my BPL TV(FHR-21) it showing a green color


How to Fix a TV When the Screen Is Green


A TV is calibrated by the factory to provide a "standard" picture that attempts to appeal to the vast number of buyers who take the set home. To adjust a TV picture that is too green, you must first enter the hidden "service menu" that technicians use. Adjusting the colors to remove the green cast will save you the cost that would otherwise be incurred from a TV technician coming to your home. No special tools are needed, nor any expertise in how the TV works.

Press the power button on the remote of a TV whose picture is too green in order to turn it on.

Press and hold down the "Menu" key until the manufacturer's logo appears on the screen. This could take up to a minute or more. Release the "Menu" key when the logo appears.

Immediately press the "9," "8," "7" and "6" keys in this order. Press the "Enter" button on the remote to enter the "Service Menu" screen.

Press the "Menu" button to go to the second of the two "Service Menu" screens. Press down on the "Down" arrow until you highlight "Color Calibration." Press the "Enter" button to enter the "Color Calibration" screen.

Select one of the color bars on the screen. Adjust the color by changing the values of the color bar by pressing left and right on the "left" and "right" arrows on the remote. Repeat this procedure with the other color bars as well. Stop adjusting the colors when the green cast is no longer present.

Press and hold the "Power" button on the remote to exit the "Service Menu" and save the adjustments you have made. Turn the TV off.

Faces on the screen are too red. Adjusted color


From all sources? cable/DVD/other inputs

If it is from everything, you could try to reset all settings back to the factory defaults and see if that improves it. Check the users manual for instructions.

Images on screen are very red. Tried adjusting everything in the menu but still every thing is like glowing red.


Color balance is labeled "Tint"
Color amount is labeled "Color"

Both are in the "picture" adjustments menu.

Either your tint is swung too far to red, or the color setting is wide open making normally pink faces look sunburned...likely it's a combination of the two; Too much red, and a bit too much color.

Going back to the "default factory setting" in "setup" will also drop all settings to center.

Color


see if there is a "default" option, if not set everything back to the middle, if the colors are still off you sure its not the convergence?
most big screens allow you to change "color temperature" it's like a default adjustment for 3 different brightness levels.... ie...COOL, WARM picture will show obvious changes in brightness

Setting color and focus inside case


The only way to do that is by eye. To Adjust the screen controls the best thing to do is turn them all down then slowly adjust one up until you get retrace lines (arched lines across the tv) then turn it down until the lines re not visible then go about 1/4 turn more, repeat this for the 2 remaining colors, after that its just done to eye for the best color. if you are still having trouble getting the color right you can go in the menu to the video settings and turn the color all the way down then you will have a black and white picture and you can adjust for a perfect black and white picture then turn the color back up in the menu.
As for the focus controls its best done by covering 2 of the tubes so you only have one color on the screen then adjusting to the best looking focus for that color. then repeat this for the other 2 tubes.
If you need more help or clarification please let me know

Use the Setup menu to select English or Spanish as
the language for the menus and on-screen displays.
Adjust Color Balance Automatically or manually
(PerfectColor TM) using six colors, Magenta, Red, Yellow,
Green, Cyan and Blue. Reset the Color Balance to the
factory default settings. Align the focus (convergence)
of the TV's projected light beams or reset the focus to
the factory default settings.
