Hi, my television picture has gotten out of wack. It has a dingy reddish tint to the picture. I have tried my best to adjust the color, tint, contrast you name it. It does no good. Thanks Bill K.

    Hi, actually looks like I dodged a bullit for now. My wife came home and told me what she did. The little slot where the yellow plug in goes is apparantly loose or something. We put the yellow end plug in and turned it and it fixed the problem for now.

    Thanks for your help though. I have a feeling this thing is on its last leg.

What are the best picture settings for Samsung UN39EH5003FXZA?

Your eyes are normally the best indicators to how a picture will look; just adjust the color and tint so that the people's faces reflect how they look in real life, and do not adjust the picture while a commercial is airing.

You need a simple color adjustment. (Color Calibration)

You don't need to spend money on this. Try it for yourself.

Your main problem is that your color temperature is set to warm.
You need to change temperature to COOL or 6500K depending, on how it is labeled.

You will see improvement, but there is a little more...
Move "Color" DOWN from it's current position (probably at 50) to somewhere between 30 and 40. (Just a couple of clicks above where the color rapidly washes out.)

At this point there will still be slightly unnatural color to skin tones, but all the artificial "sunburn" and blaring red will be gone.

Last (as far as color goes) move the tint 2 to 4 clicks toward green. This added green tint balances the color so that the flesh tones become completely accurate and realistic.

For even better detail, continue your home calibration here:

Hi, I have just purchased the Samsung LE37A559 tv. I have been trying to get the best colour settings brightness colour contrast tint backlight etc. Is there a optimum setting for all of these ? I am...

The problem is that everyone has a different "taste" when it comes to these settings. I like to turn the color all the way down to start with. You should (if the set is factory adjusted correctly) have a black and white picture. If it's not B&W, then there's something inside the set that needs adjusted and you should get a service call. Then I adjust brightness and contrast to get the best B&W picture. Then I turn the color up until I'm happy with the color level, then I adust tint.

Hope that helps

Green tint I can't seem to fix

Hopefully someone on here has a manual and can tell you exactly where the tint controls are. Also need to try adjusting the color level, turn it clear down so you have a black and white picture.
Is the picture still green over the screen with the color control
set clear down to black and white? If it does, you might
have an issue with the green gun going out or problem in the
circuitry to it.

By the way, the best way to adjust the picture settings on a
tv are to first turn the color control clear down, then adjust
brightness and contrast for best black and white picture, then
bring up the color level to where it should be and adjust the
tint for best red/green ratio.
