  2. Press Down arrow key until you see the word Picture, then press the Right arrow key,
  3. Press Down arrow key until you see Mode, then press the Right arrow key,
  4. Press Down arrow key until you see Power Up, then press the Right arrow key,
  5. Press Down arrow key until you see Home, then press the Enter key,

How do we adjust color without a remote ?


Hello
If your TV has a "Menu" button on its front panel, press it once to get into its menu option. Surf thorogh and come to the picture control window. There you can see the adjustments. Will be Brightness, Contrast, Colour, Sharpness, Tint etc. Select the option you want to adjust, advance or decrese its parameter by volume Up/Down buttons. If there is no 'Menu' button on its front panel, it will be impossible to adjust these parametes withoug a remote control. OK.

I own an olevia lt42hvi; I need to change the picture (brightness, etc...) but it says I can only do it in "user mode." have never seen this before. I need help identifying and getting the tv...


I have a Olevia 532-b12 and it may be similar. Hit the small round menu button on the remote. A pinwheel shape should appear on the upper left part of the screen. Use the up/down and left/right direction keys to find picture, and you should be able to adjust brightness, contract, etc.

Is there a way to access the tint function on the Apex4088? It is not accessable when we go into the picture setup menu. It appears to be locked.


Hello

The Tint function can be accesed by the following steps.

The PICTURE menu offers options to enhance and refine the picture displayed on your TV based on ambient room light and personal preferences. Adjustment options include contrast, brightness, color, sharpness and color temperature

Press the MENU button on the remote control. Navigate using t u arrow buttons to select PICTURE. Press the down q arrow button to highlight PICTURE MODE, then press the u arrow button to select your viewing preference from 4 factory options:
STANDARD > DYNAMIC > MOVIE > PERSONAL. The STANDARD setting is recommended for most viewing environments. Depending on the ambient light level in the room, you may find one of the other options more pleasing.

To make more critical adjustments based on your own preferences in PERSONAL:

• Use down q arrow button to highlight Contrast. Navigate using the
t u arrow buttons to increase or decrease contrast intensity.
• Use down q arrow button to highlight Brightness. Navigate using the t u arrow buttons to increase or decrease overall brightness.
• Use down q arrow button to highlight Color. Navigate using the
t u arrow buttons to increase or decrease color intensity.
• Use down q arrow button to highlight Tint. Navigate using the
t u arrow buttons to adjust colors toward green or reddish tint.
• Use down q arrow button to highlight Sharpness. Navigate using the t u arrow buttons to soften or view crisper edges in the picture.
• Use down q arrow button to highlight Color Temperature. Navigate using the t u arrow buttons to select COOL (more bluish tone), NORMAL or WARM. The default setting is NORMAL. WARM mode will provide color that is calibrated to D6500° Kelvin, the standard color that broadcast stations and the Motion Picture industry consider as the most accurate to view programming.
Note: When adjustments are completed, you may select another menu by pressing the Menu button.
OK

Need to change tint, color on screen using the remote of course


Since you do not provide the make and model number of the TV so we can look for the user manual for you to read on how to make adjustment to your TV.
You just have to get to the MENU button on the remote for the ON screen setup menu and look for Picture adjustment set up to adjust the Pictures.
It should show Brightness, Contrast, Tint, Color adjustment choices.

Have bought a second hand philips 28pw6506, it has no remote control. Do you know how to change the aspect ratio or size of picture on screen? Have looked through the menus with the button on top of the...


Hello
To change its picture aspect ratio, you have to go to its menu. As you haven't its remote control there is an option for that, mentioned in its user manual. I hereby send it to you. Do the same and access the aspect ratio.

The television set has 4 keys which are located

on the front or the top of the set depending
on the model.

The VOLUME - + (- Vol +) keys are used to

adjust sound levels.The PROGRAM - + (- P +)

keys are used to select the required programmes.

To access the menus, simultaneously hold down

the VOL- and VOL+ keys.The PROGRAM - +

keys may then be used to select an adjustment

and the - VOL+ keys to make that adjustment.

To exit from the menus, hold down the 2 VOL-

and VOL+ keys.


Note: when the Child Lock function is activated,
these keys are unavailable
OK.
