When tv was purchased we had problems getting color right on screen. Now that we have added a hd dvr from dish network the colors are all screwed up. cannot seem to get red back into the picture properly. it goes from a brown to a light color any sugjestions would be appreciated
Look for a "reset" in the display settings. This should reset you back to factory or "out of the box" settings.
If this doesn't help, contact your local service provider and have them check out the set. May cost a small fee for a service call, but if the tech is knowledgable, he or she may give you enough insight or knowlege on how to set up your TV for your viewing environment. Those controls have a purpose that most people are uneducated about.
Check out http://www.imagingscience.com/ and if you can find a calibrator in your area, see if they will explain to you the benefits of a calibration. You might also be able to get some info from the site. Also, look at the bottom of the above web page. You will see that ISF is selling a disk that will guide you through a user menu calibraton.
I am an ISF certified calibrator, and I offer to my customers, a free user menu calibration, and yes, I use the afore-mentioned disk. Once you see the difference and are educated about what a calibration does for your perception of your set and how and why it operates the way it does, you will better understand.
Also keep in mind that ultimately there may be something wrong with your set. I am also a repair technician and I have seen countless issues when it comes to repair. Having said that, minor or slight color issues should be resolvable.
Best of luck.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

What error message are you receiving on your screen? There should be a 3 digit number in the top right of the message. Has there been any bad weather in the area which may have affected the signal?
If you haven't been advised to already, I would suggest doing a hard reset of the receiver by unplugging it from the outlet for 10 seconds. When you plug it back in the receiver will reboot itself for you. If you are still getting errors hit the menu button then 6-system setup, 1-installation, 1-point dish, and then hit check switch and then test. All your satellites should show green. If not we would need to send a tech out to address the issue.
To get the functionality you're looking for you'll need to to take the cable running from your DVR output and connect it to the input on your DVD recorder. Next you want to connect a cable from your DVD recorder output and connect it to your TV. If this is an HD set up you want to use HD Cables for all of the connections.
You have indicated that you have a 622 DVR receiver, since this is where your posting was found. When you trying any of the DVR functions on the remote, do you get an error message (024 or 311) indicating that the function is not available at this time? If not, try unplugging the receiver for 10 seconds from the electrical outlet. This will reboot the receiver and re-acquire the satellite signal. Once the picture returns, try the DVR function. If the problem continues, please call 1-800-333-3474; we may need to replace the receiver. I hope this helps.
The problem could lie in youir HDMI cable, this is a common issue. if you swap HDMI cables and still have the same problem then bypass your A/v rec and connect your 622 direct to your tv and see if the problem persists, it it does, then your DVR needs to be replaced, you can call dish for addition troubleshooting if it is in fact your DVR.
if the show that you are recording is also skipping on live tv, then it could be 2 things. it could either be a broadcasting issue (which the broadcasting center at dish network would have to correct on their end) or 2. it could be that your dish needs realigned. also if you purchased the dish dvr through dish network their models are quite often refurbished where they fix old models and send them back out. (most satellite companies do this) contact dish network and let them know you are having a problem, they may replace your dvr and if you have a protection plan they will often replace it for free.
I too have a SpectronIQ PD 300-HD that came bundled with my 32" LCD tv (PLTV-3250) and have had the exact same problem. The only thing that worked for me was to totally unhook the DVD player from the tv (HDMI cables and everything) and unplug it from the power source for a minimum of 30 minutes to try to reset it to the factory defaults. The last time I tried this, however, it didn't work. I'm now having a problem with my TV as well - I just got my HD DVR from Dish Network and my picture keeps going from black screen to the blue "just turned on" screen, with the power light going from green to red. Then, suddenly the picture comes back, but sometimes the picture is "tiled", like the tiles news broadcasts use to hide someone's identity. I even have a Dish Network tech at my house RIGHT NOW who is having all kinds of problems figuring out what the problem is, but he thinks it's - GASP - the TV! Of course, since SpectronIQ went bankrupt and Shop NBC (the retailer the set was purchased from, as a GIFT, no less) has been absolutely USELESS, I have no idea what to do and am absolutely LOATH to purchase a new LCD tv. Does anyone know what can be done?
OK, I had Dish network come out and install DVR HD. Had pixel des torsionviewing everything I recorded. They came out 3 time and replace DVR and check everything 3 time with no improvement. I had them remove everything.
I called Direct tv and they did the same thing. installed there dish and cables and DVR. Same problems. My question is? Is this the nature of this equipment or is there something they are missing.
