Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a RCA 42 inch 1080 HD Tv. My son decided to change my color setting. Is there a way to get the factory setting back? I have been playing with the different tint, contrast and color settings. I still can't getting anything other than a bright yellow and a bright blue. I don't have anything red. Can you suggest a good ratio for each setting?

Well there is usually a tab in your pictuer adjusment screen that says reset. but if your tv doesn't have that tab i can give you a few adjustments.

first- your tint should remain neutral. so if it has a color scale of 1 to 100 it should be on 50
second- your contrast should be about 80% or what your eye likes. look at the black tones
when you are adjusting it.
third- your brightness would look good about 65% pay attention to whites in your picture
fourth- your color all depends on how your eye precieves it. so adjust it with out making the colors to
neon or too dull
fith- your sharpness should be turned down to about 15% to much gives the picture a grainy texture.
sixth- your color temp should be neutral or normal. if the tv gives numbers the selection that says 6500k is the best choice.

you could always buy a calibration disc for about $20 and that could help you even better because now you are using images targeting the individule adjustment.

you could always pay to have it profeesionally caibrated. ISF certified techs will come too your home and do all the adjusment with special color filters and light sensors to give it the best picture possible according to your room. i know best buy charges $250 for it

those are just some suggestions. and the adjustments i give you work greatest for me, so if you dont like the overall out come you can always tweek it to your eye. make sure you use a digital picture with a lot of color when your making your adjustments. i like using disneys "the incredibles"

Someone probably played around with the "Tint" settings in the TV menu. The easiest way to fix it is to go into the TV picture menu and reset everything to the default settings. There's probably one option for "Reset to Factory Default" or something along those lines. Since every TV is different with this, you should read your owner's manual to find how to enter the menu and find the reset button.

I have a toshiba flat screen 42 inch. i went to change the channel and now all i have is a white screen and no sound


Hello
The tuner card in your TV is not working I thinks. Anyway set the TV to its factory defaults. It will make all the setting to factory levels. If this also didn't helep you, repace the tuner card.
To restore the TV to its factory setting:
[1] Press Menu and open the SETUP menu.
[2] Highlight INSTALLATION and press ENTER. A new set of installation menu will appear.
[3] Open the SYSTEM STATUS menu. Hilight the SYSTEM INFORMATION, and press ENTER.
[4] Press [ => / [5] Enter your PIN code (or 0000 if no PIN code has been set).
OK

My tv goes from 1080 to 720 while I'm playing my ps3 how can I make it stay on 1080


You have make sure the game can run in 1080p first by looking at the back of the box. If it can, and you're using hdmi etc then simply do the following:

1. Go into display settings.
2. Select HDMI, then "custom"
3. Uncheck 720p and 1080i, leave 1080p selected.
4. Start up the game and double check it is on 1080p.

Otherwise, you're stuck because the majority of games are in 720p to avoid lag within the game.

They wont do that. If you don't have the original remote then you must do by way of the manual controls on the set.

I need an authorisation code to retune a 42 inch LCD full HD 1080 TV Product L42E77AZ TCLELE


The TV will display the signal it is being fed with and adjust itself according to the video signal resolution. The video source tells the TV what the resolution it should display. 720 in 720 out on the screen, 1080 in 1080 on th screen (if TV can do 1080p or 1080i).
What kind of signal you are feeding your TV with.

I have a 42 inch rca tv model WB22YX5 componet inputs dont work


Sometimes, these inputs get damaged by ESD, or stray voltages, and become damaged. You may just need to give the set a reset, unplug an leave for 5 mins or so, and try again, if still no go, see if there is anything, in the troubleshooting procedures, that can help. It may just be a board replacement, If you decide, to get it repaired, please first contact RCA head office, and ask for a referral, to an authorised service center.

HD 1080 Series (WD-55809) - Color convergence issue


I don't know of illustrated instructions but I can provide you with the service manual for your TV. It does have illustrations of disassembly and components as well as schematics. Your set very likely needs new convergence IC chips. This is a common problem with all projection TVs. The repair is not expensive ($60-75 in parts)  but does involve unsoldering and removing the old chips and soldering in new ones. Some times there are some fuses that need to be replaced as well. If you want the manual provide me with an email address.

My xbox360 Wont work on my WS-55513 MITSUBISHI COMPONENT


Try changing the settings on the Xbox under display to 1080i. If it is 1080 p, or 720p, the image will look funny so make sure it is at 1080i.
