Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Color fading, orangy red, video adjustments don't fix.

Purchased 1/30/02. Not main TV. Cable hookup w/HD box. Nice picture for years, than color began to fade. Red spot appeared in middle of screen. Lost red color completely. Checked all connections and replaced antenna cable which returned the red but orangy color, but color and brightness is still poor. Video adjustments not capable of returning a good picture. Is there a picture tube or bulb that needs replacing, and can I do the work? TV repair service is non-existent in my area. Thanks to anyone for help.

If it is a tube type unit you may not find a new tube they are almost extinct ,
also, most tube malfunctions are caused by improper voltage, only a qualified tech should work on the high voltage section of a tube tv,,, it can kill you even if it has Not Been Plugged in for a whole year

re-post with the make and model number for further assistance

Open up the front of the set by removing the speaker screen and the black piece of particle board. on the bottom right you will see 4 knobs. Turn those knobs slowly till the arcs go away. The 3 knobs on the bottom are for color. the 3 on top are for the focus.

SOURCE: the color on my mitsubishi model # vs-5041 is faded and foggy.

Hi, did you try a color convergence? I used to work in Best Buy and one of the key things about rear projection TVs and the reason they push those service plans on you is that the tubes/colors need to be calibrated each year. You can do this yourself by checking out the following website:

Hope this helps :)

Check hookup connections. If you are using the component input (3 wire video green ,blue and red). Be sure both ends are in the correct colors. if switched or not all 3 connected color will be off. Composite video uses only 1 wire ,yellow. See owners manual for hookup explanations.

Color fine with rca jacks but when using hdmi/component its not


There may be a number of problems that are causing your HD issues. They may exist in your TV, or in the box you use to tune your channels. Contact your cable or satellite provider and ask them to change out your box. If the condition still surfaces, then you need to have your TV checked. The component and HDMI jacks are both connected to the same electronics. This is why they are exhibiting the same problem.

Hi.
Use component to connect this will give yu HD picture,
On the back of the set you will see A group of 5 phono sockets Blue, Green, Red, These carry picture,

Then Red, White, these carry stereo sound.
Component video 0831d.gif
Component-video cable b.gif
Component video improves the picture quality even more by not only separating the color from the black-and-white portions of the picture but by further splitting the color information into two color-difference signals. When the picture signal is split up in this way, you get an unfiltered, uninterrupted image, with better resolution and greatly improved color saturation. And this is why component video is the predominant method of hookup from HDTV set-top decoders to HDTVs.

So this is how your set can produce HD picture from Hd source.

My picture has a green and blue hue to it.


After spending a day trying to fix the TV, I found out the problem was actually with my cable box. I have an HD DVR recorder. We unplugged the cable box and plugged the TV directly into the cable in the wall and it worked. So we took the cable box back to our cable company and got a new cable box. (Can't live without the DVR!!)
