There are in the older rear projection sets lens for those that do not use a lamp for a light source.

In the older sets there are three large black lens that can be seen and reached with the rear cover off---if there clean them as they are the light source in those sets and if dusty picture will look dull and darker than it once did.

If in doubt shoot me a model number.

SOURCE: hitachi 52 projection tv

use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.

Having same problem now for a second time on a 57T500. First time was a bad green bulb that was covered under warranty. Only lasted 2 years....currently debating wether to fix or buy a new set. Bulbs cost about $300. Set is only 5 years old, so very dissapointed with quality.

SOURCE: TV picture is red.

Normal color picture is composed with 3 colors R-G-B (Red-Green-Blue). Picture turns Red means: Missing Green and Blue colors (many reasons: bad contacts, projector tubes dead, and other...). Try to give some "tabs" to diagnose ... I don't know what is the type of your Projection TV, how long you owned it, to have more idea.

Cannot adjust color


Have you turned the controls from one of the presets? Presets are Vivid, Movie, etc. Most sets have to be in Custom or Customize to adjust the controls, likely on-screen with one of contrast, brightness, color, or tint selected. If those are horizontal bars then up/down selects which and right/left select decrease/increase or red/green for tint. Start with 50% if no reset (0% for R/G) or start with the non-Vivid settings. Consult AVS forums for you model to get better settings. Rules of thumb: Brightness should be as dark as possible without losing gray scale at lowest part. Contrast should not be so high that whites bloom or make it hard to see. Color should not blow out any color nor be unnatural. Tint is best judged on flesh tones. -Ken

Dark picture


you know it sounds like the same problem i had....
look this is something you can try.... "turn the tv off and unplugg it!!!"...you'll need to take out the lower front part of the tv......(where the speakers are to be exact) on each lower end you will find 2 screws..Be careful it will open to the side and there are many wires, i suggest you mark them to know where to put them back...then right in the middle there will be a black cover with about 5 screws..take them out....and look at the very bottom you'll see a thing with 6 pegs....the top ones are for the screen "DO NOT TOUCH THEM"...the ones on the bottom are for the colors...re adjust them...the left one it's for blue, the middle one it's for green and the last one it's for red...

I had the same problem after i moved....and after i re adjust that the tv looks super...
i hope that helps..:P

The dark colos have a lil' green on them...why?


How old is this set? Sounds like a CRT issue, might be able to adjust the G2 control (SCREEN), you will have to pull the bottom pannel off the front and there should be another little 1/4" thick board that comes off with a few screws and then a 6 knob control, turn your color all the way off in the menu and adjust your screen controlls up till you get some overcolor with lines in it and then back down just before the lines (MAKE SURE YOU DEFAULT ALL YOUR USER MENUS) check that you have a black and white picture after adjusting all 3 screen controls like before with the menu color off. If you have a bad CRT it will go again, the CRT may no longer be available, if the set is not too old i.e. 5-8 years old it may be a defect with multiple CRTs.
