Question about Hitachi 60V715 60" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
My tv has a greenish tint on every channel pic is ok just greenish. like the letters should be white they look off white with a yellowish grreenish tint. and like the Minnesota Vikings uniform should be purple they look brown. It is the same when I watch a movie on my dvd player, so I know its not the cables. any suggestions. I tried to reset the tint , no luck
Solution for the Hitachi 50V715. I contacted Hitachi and they told me there is a problem with the color engine with this and other Hitachi models. They will replace the part for free, but first I need to take it to a repair shop to verify the problem and I have to pay labor. Not too bad considering the cost of the engine.

I had the same problem with my LG LCD when connecting through component cables. I eventually managed to resolve it by using the hidden calibration menu for my LG tv. This menu is for AV technicians and also has options for limiting tv channels for hotel rooms etc.. Most importantly for me and you is that it has Red, Green, and Blue offset and gain levels so that you can adjust the picture colour levels. The way to access this menu differs from model to model but often requires pressing a combination of menu buttons for a few seconds.
BE WARNED THOUGH: THESE MENUS ARE VERY COMPLICATED AND WRONGLY ADJUSTING THESE OPTIONS CAN SERIOUSLY SCREW UP YOUR TV AND INVALIDATE YOUR WARRANTY!!!!
IF YOUR TV IS UNDER WARRANTY GET IT DONE PROFESSIONALLY!!
OR CONSIDER PAYING AN A.V. TECHNICIAN TO DO IT FOR YOU.
If you are fairly technically minded and you don't have a gaurantee then consider using these options.
1. Make sure you are on the input channel you need to adjust e.g. AV1, Component, HDMI
2. Press and hold the 'magic buttons' until menu appears.
3. Find the right option. On my LG it is 'ScalerADC'
4. Make a note of all values before adjusting them so you know how to reset them.
5. Red / Green / Blue Offset= Adjusts the saturation of each colour in the tv image.
Red / Green / Blue Gain= As far as I can tell, adjusts the hue of bright sections of the screen.
There are usually contrast and brightness options also.
I recommend having some kind of static, well balanced image on the screen while adjusting these options so you can see the results. A paused DVD scene is good, for example.
As for the 'magic buttons' to press, you'll have to try Googling your model.
I have noticed on my TV that when different resolutions are inputed through my component channel I seem to get different RGB levels. I've adjusted it suit my xbox 360 at 720p, but when I play DVD through it at 578p then the RGB levels come up all wrong again.
Anyway, hope this helps.
AGAIN, BE VERY CAREFULL WITH THESE SETTINGS.
