Question about Projection Televisions

2 Answers

Older projection TV reduce picture quality

The TV takes a while to ''warm up'' with the picture washed out and faded. When it does come on, the colors are faded and video adjustments don't help much. Also, the picture has some wavy, shadowy, vertical lines. When connected to the DVD, the picture is better, but still not as sharp as it used to be and still has the wavy, shadowy, vertical lines. The unit is an older (1994) Hitachi rear projection TV, Model 50UX19K.

Does it come and go? Or is it like this all the time? If you bump the side of the TV does it change the symptoms? Thanks Lou

Sony KP-53HS30 Projection TV has pink and blue hue w/timer blink


Depending on your TV, you may have a Color Temperature (Color Temp) and/or Hue setting in the menu. Use these options to adjust the picture to the setting that best suits your viewing preference.
If your TV has a Color Temp setting, you will normally have the following options to select from:
  • Cool: Gives the picture a cooler, slightly bluish appearance.
  • Neutral: Gives the picture a neutral, more natural look and appearance.
  • Warm: Gives the picture a warmer, slightly reddish appearance.
If your TV has a Hue setting, follow the appropriate step below to make adjustments:
  1. Move the setting to the right to reduce the reddish appearance.
  2. Move the setting to the left to reduce the greenish appearance.

Picture is fuzzy and color seems faded




Sounds like your coolant in the tubes need to be repalced. This is a common problem as the set gets older. Check with www.TvRepairKits.com for the supplies and instruction guide.
