SOURCE: how to change screen on seiki 42 inc flate screen tv

Merely CHANGING it would not be a problem. GETTING, OBTAINING, BUYING one will be! And that's sad. I've been around the service business for several years and learned that the manufacturers of new flat screen TV sets only buy/manufacture enough extras to take care of their warranty work. They obviously don't want you to be able to repair them. Only hope you have for buying one is from a re-seller that tears down those that don't work and saves and sells the parts on the Internet. You'd need AT LEAST the Name Brand and Model # of your TV. It'd be even better if you were to dismantle it and get any viewable numbers off ths screen assemly itself to support your communication with a seller to insure you're buying the correct item. Hope this helps although the outlook for success on this type of repair is rather bleak.

Why cant i change the tint of my picture? the menue keeps skipping the tint option


If you're watching UK TV broadcasts then we don't have a need for tint. Similarly, with HDMI sources you shouldn't need tint either because the TV's colour decoder isn't active.

Tint is a throw-back to the American analogue TV system called NTSC. Their system doesn't lock the colour phase to the sync signal. So depending how far the TV was from the transmitter the colour would be further and further out of whack. Hence the industry joke that NTSC stood for Never Twice (the) Same Colour ...N - T - S - C. The Tint control was used to re-time the colour signal. The UK didn't have this issue because our TV system (PAL - Phase Alternate Line) includes information to lock the colour signal phase.

Strictly speaking, Tint is only required with NTSC analogue composite signals. This is where the brightness information is mixed with colour on a sub-carrier frequency. So, that would be signals via an aerial lead or from the yellow video connection which is how most of us first see a composite signal. These signals are encoded as NTSC. Any signals where the colour and brightness (luma) information is kept separate shouldn't need Tint. So, S-video, Component and RGB at 60Hz all bypass a TVs NTSC decoder. If the TV is correctly designed then the Tint option should not be available. Some TV manufacturers break the convention though, for the simple reason that many old school US consumers grew up adjusting Tint, so it's too much of a culture shock to take away that feature.

To recap then, if Tint isn't available then it's because the signal doesn't need that adjustment. The colour timing is already bang on accurate.

My zenith lcd tv has lost its blue tint. most


the light polarizer on the blue lcd panel is fried due to excesive dust and heat, and therefore need to be replaced. unfortunately, zenith may not sell individual parts of the optical engine, so you'll have to replace the whole optical engine.

DLP RCA HDTV is displaying bars from top to bottom of screen, with green tint. Is this the light engine going bad?


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. This issue can happen due to a faulty light engine or due to a a faulty DLP Lamp. However, it can be an issue with the video driver card of your Card. I'll suggest to use a DVD player and check if the tint is still there. If the tint disappears then its an issue with the video driver card.
However, if it doesn't correct the issue its either a DLP Lamp or a faulty light engine.
Note-- Please make sure to turn off and unplug the TV for at least 1 hour (this will drain off current from all components especially capacitors) before you perform any repairs. Also note that the TV consists of very high voltages even when it is in OFF condition.

Before performing any repairs i'll suggest you to try and reset the TV by unplugging it for 8-10 hours.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Can"t find white or comfortable background screen other than a light green that is hurting my eyes


If you have a screen that gets "tints" of various colors on a corner or edge, check that the monitor plugin cable is not near or laying on top of a power cable, the magnetic field around a power cord will cause a monitor to get strange tints or lines in the screen. Option two if the entire screen has a tint equally all over it is possibly the color is out of adjustment or failing - a technician should be able to adjust it internally.

Have a green tint over 90% ot the center of the screen


I had the same problem with my 60V500A about a year ago. The screen got a red tint in the center and the image was fuzzy in that area. A new lamp didn't solve the problem. I did some checking and found out that the original light engine used in this model had a cooling issue that could cause the light engine to overheat and distort the LCD panels. My warranty had run out more than a year before this happened so I figured I was screwed since the light engine was so expensive. I decided to call Hitachi tech support and see if I could get a discount on the cost of a new light engine since the cooling problem was a known issue for this model TV. I calmly explained to them that I was aware of the cooling issue in the light engine and that I felt like a $4000 TV should last more than two or three years. Tech support gave me the phone number for my local authorized Hitachi service center and I gave them a call. Once the technician confirmed that it was the light engine that was the problem Hitachi sent him a replacement light engine at no cost to me. I was WAY past my warranty period so I still had to pay for the labor to replace the light engine. $300 for labor was a lot cheaper than buying a new light engine or tossing the TV and buying a new one. I have to say that Hitachi earned my respect for admitting there was a problem and doing what was needed to correct the problem more than a year after my warranty had expired.

Here is something that may help from the toshiba.com website under your model number television. Q. Why are people on my screen green?
Models: 32HL17, 37HL17, 42HL17, 42HL167, 47HL167, 52HL167, 42HL167, 42LX177, 46LX177, 52LX177, 57LX177
REF:FAQLCD00107
If the problem is not the connections, try adjusting the tint on your television. A high tint setting will usually create a green
image on the screen where as a low tint will create a more red hue. In order to access your television's tint:
1. Press the “MENU” button on your remote control and use the LEFT or RIGHT arrow keys and select the
VIDEO menu.
2. Then use the UP and DOWN arrow keys to highlight PICTURE SETTINGS and press the "ENTER" button on
your remote.
3. Next use the UP and DOWN arrow keys to highlight TINT then use the LEFT or RIGHT arrow keys to adjust the
TINT. If the picture is too green the tint will need to be lowered.
4. Once you have adjusted the tint to your liking, use the DOWN arrow key to highlight DONE and press ENTER. The toshiba customer service telephone number is : 1-800-631-3811. I hope this helps you with your problem.
