Sounds like the picture tube is going bad or there is a screen voltage capacitor bad in the sweep power supply.

This is no solution but a point in a probable direction.

A tech guy told me ALL the LCDs they have seen in their repair shop have "swollen" capacitors, this is due to voltage instability. Lowering the internal voltage regulator and replacing the swollen capacitors (which eliminate noise) apparently restores the LCD to new working quality. Without actually "seeing" my problem the tech said that should repair it. I have not tried this yet but eventually will begin that way.

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

This brightness irregularity is caused by poor voltage control in the horizontal scanning circuits. Voltage drops of this kind are usually due to aging electrolytic capacitors which lose the ability to maintain high voltage. This problem can be repaired but you cannot do it yourself. This type of TV can have DANGEROUS high voltages present inside even after it has been turned off for WEEKS. I'm talking HEART ATTACK voltages. Call a qualified service technician.

Usually factory defaults are set to the middle settings in your menu structure. If you have values then it would be the middle of the value.
Is there any certain reason why you wish to go into the service menus?

What are perfect settings for colour on my Toshiba 22KV500B?


It will depend upon individual viewing taste. Yet, contrast 65%; Brightness 50 to 60% and color 30 to 45% will give a satisfactory picture. https://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

What is the correct picture setting for a vizio smart tv model E322AR?


Contrast = 60 to 80%.
Brightness = 40 to 55%
Color = according to personal viewing taste.
Sharpness = 15 to 20%
The best way to tune to a perfect picture is, set the color to Zero first. Without any colour, increase the contrast to at about 65%. Adjust the brightness to get a perfect picture in B/W. Then increase the color, according to your viewing taste. Compare the skin tone of a person. That's all.

In most cases, 75% contrast, 40 to 50% brightness and 35 to 45% color will be best. Adjust the picture sharpness control in between 10 and 25%

What is the proper calibration settings for a panasonic tc-p50s2n. I have used it for over a 100 hours


Do you have access to a test pattern or color bar ? .If you have a THX certified DVD ( some Walt Disney movies ) it will have calibration setup guide in the DVD menu.Or else you have to buy a calibration DVD if you are serious about your TV setup.
First you have to set the contrast and brightness using the Grey-scale pattern. Seven set of vertical bars slowly progressing from white to black. If set right you should be able to make out all the seven bars with out each merging ( or overlapping ) into the other. You will be able to see the line of demarcation between each vertical bars. Then set the color to taste.
If you do not want to purchase the above mentioned DVD disc a close setup figure for your Panasonic TV would be
Picture Mode = Standard ( Normal )
Picture ( Contrast ) ---- 50
Brightness ---------------- 50
Color ------------------------ 33
Sharpness ---------------- 50
Hue ------------------------- In the middle
This setting should give you a decent picture quality assuming your TV is new.

Find what the low and high numbers are and set them to the middle, e.g. 0-10 set on 5 This is the optimized condition from the engineers. Then you can increase or decrease each parameter to your likings.

Sony BRAVIA KDL-40W4000


Hi there,

I've been looking into this myself as I've also recently purchased the KDL-40W4000. I was watching a murky old film and was getting a bit of sludgy ghosting but found that by reducing the contrast to 25, setting the backlight on low, colour on neutral and the brightness about 40-60 (and taking ALL advanced noise functions off), this reduced the ghosting considerably.

BUT, this is quite a cool and dark image. If you watch standard TV and films mainly, a variation of the Cinema setting is probably the best overall setting i.e.

backlight: min
contrast: 79
brightness: 50
colour: 53
colour temp: Warm 2 (although Warm 1 is less yellow and still fine)
sharpness: min
noise reduction: off
mpeg nr: off
contrast enhancer: off
colour space: standard

it depends on what your using it for, adjust colour tones to what you think looks natural, contrast between 80-90, keep sharpness below 30. just have a play around till you find what best suits the source material.
