How to set perfect color on samsung 48" led smart tv


To achieve true life like colors, the primary colors need to be balanced to produce a perfect black and white picture. Turn the color level on the tv to 0 and tint to middle then look at the picture - does it have a reddish or other "coloration" to it? Then set the individual color levels (if your TV has these settings) of red, blue and green to balance out and get a true black and white picture. After that, bring the color level up slowly until the facial levels are natural - not over driven as seen in most store displays. You may need to use tint control slightly.....
One other way - There is a dvd from Disney called "Wow" that aids in getting your set to optimum display.

Grey spot on photo


NOISY PICTURES One of the major difference between a consumer digital camera and a digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) is that the former produces images with a lot of noise when using high ISOs and long exposure times, and the latter is practically noise-free (though high ISO performance varies depending on camera manufacturer and model). Noise is apparent by the presence of color speckles where there should be none. For example, instead of a blue sky, you notice faint pink, purple and other color speckles amongst the otherwise blue sky.

Screen very dark with outlines of reddish hues


Could be the CCD image sensor go to bad; this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

I suggest check THIS LINK for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) and next contact your Camera Service.
I strongly suggest (taking into consideration the age of your camera) to evaluate the cost of repair versus the cost of a new camera with similar features, before making a final desicion.

Good luck.

My pictures have a purple tint to them


You're either using old/expired film, or taking photos during dusk. Color film is balanced for daylight photography. Using it under conditions other than that will result in varying color casts on the resulting images.

Fluorescent lighting: Greenish
Indoor bulbs: Reddish/orange
Outdoor at night/dusk: Blueish/purpla
Ourdoor at dawn: Pink/blue

Or, you may have just gotten bad print work done. Try a different lab.

Model ds31590 screen has a reddish purple tint whether it s on tv or video i have already tried to change all picture settings and set back to factory settings still has same problem,here is an example...


Chances are real good that your picture is showing its age. There are three color beams in the neck of the picture tube. When these electrodes are operating correctly the will produce an arc, that will produce the proper voltage for color correction. Much like the spark plugs in your car. When you have a fouled spark plug, you replace it. In the case of a TV, replacing the tube is the best way to correct the picture you are looking for. It would be to costly to do this of course. Another option is to rejuvenate the picture tube. Once again, rejuvenating the picture is last resort. Customers must be warned that rejuvenating may work or even in some cases destroy the picture tube. I want to remind you as well, the symptoms you describe will over work the main board as well. This TV is not feasible for repair. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!

Pioneer Elite Plasma TV 2-yrs old loses color randomly.


Would need model number to search properly. On some sets a capacitor "C2601" of Y-Drive assembly contacts the audio bracket and it is damaged, can cause a abnormal picture.

The black is printing dark redish brown


Dear friend, your Black Ink Cartridge is Empty thats why your printer is using the Colour Cartridge to produce the Black Colour. This is the reason you are having Dark Reddish Brown colour instead of Black.

Pictures reddish or orange


Although normal room lights (tungsten lights) appear white to our eyes, their light is actually much "warmer" than daylight, giving a reddish or orange color to pictures. This happens with digital and film cameras. To prevent or lessen this reddish or orange color: If your digital camera has a selectable White Balance mode (check your camera's User's Guide) and you are not using the camera or external flash, set the White Balance mode for "Tungsten" light. If your pictures are reddish even when you use the camera flash or external flash, the room lighting is overpowering the flash. Try setting the White Balance mode for "Tungsten" and continue to use the flash. If your camera does not have a selectable White Balance mode, use the camera flash or external flash when taking pictures in lighting that makes your pictures turn out reddish or orange. If you can, turn down or turn off one of the room lights (without making the room too dark), or move your subject so that it is not being hit directly by the room lights. If you can, when taking pictures in the daytime, try opening any drapes that might be covering windows. Letting in natural daylight improves the color quality of the lighting.
