Question about Emerson EWC27T3 27 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

1 Answer

Picture color hue problem

In all functions the picture quality suddenly went bad. The picture is very weak and the colors that do show look flourescent. Especially the reds, greens and blues. Going from DVD's to VHS tapes to tuning into a station has no effect on the color problem. We attempted to fix the problem using the degausing technique described in the manual to no effect. The problem first started when I plugged in our sony digital camera and went to the AUX mode. The camera's pictures would not show up. Strange patterns emerged on screen. I then went to another Emerson unit, our EWC19T3, and the pictures came in nicely.

    We turned on the tv this morning, accidently hit the antenna button and when we returned to the picture we have the exact same color issues described.

By description it seems your set lost what is known as luminance and is processing only the color information,there is really no easy way to repair this problem without being involved in measuring some voltages and checking some components with a volt meter,there is a video processing IC and some of its functions are to process the video from all sources,an squematic is needed to check and follow the video signal,you can get the service manual at and the cost should be around 20.00 dollars if you downloaded it.If you are familiar with tv service you now have a place to check but if you are not too familiar and because the nature of the problem you should seek the assistance from a servicer.Let Us know how it goes and if you need more information.

What would effect the picture quality the color wheel or lamp?

The color wheel is your suspect.......usually whines a bit
when bad. In a quiet room, you can hear it when the TV is powered on or off. It spins at 9,000 rpm ( wears out the bearing).
The lamp will not exhibit those symptoms....

After extended use, if the TV picture turns dark, the color looks unusual or LAMP INDICATOR light turns on, then it
is time to replace the lamp with a new lamp.

The picture quality of the camera is very bad on my mac. im trying to use skype. first i thought it was the lighting in the room but it has been like that since i bought it. how can i get a better picture...

Run the program to use this webcam. In that you would be able to set up various items like color, hue, contrast etc etc. tweak all of them and set the best possible picture. Also rotate the ring around the lens. Both clockwise and anticlockwise to focus on to you to get the clearest picture.

Faded colors

If the picture is dark or messed up too bad, the magic focus will not function, are all the primary colors faded? RED GREEN BLUE? You might have a bad CRT, would call a service man to check out.
