Hi Lizzette,
I am afraid your problem is a little technical. Well if you know something about lcd tv technicals, the problem seems to be the T Con board and/or its connectors. Check the ribbon cables and connectors, clean them properly and and start the tv.If it is not possible or it does not work, please consult someone qualified to handle your set. Good luck.

Hi I am having problems with the color settings on my Polaroid HDTV Model 3700. I went into the settings and screwed up the Red, Green and Blue settings. I was trying make some adjustments and now the...


If you go to the Video Settings again where you altered the hue and saturation, there is an option for "Picture Mode". It probaby says "User" at the moment, but if you highlight this option and then use the RIGHT arrow key to change it to "Vivid" or "Hi-Bright", this should undo all of the changes you previously made and give you a good base to work from when re-adjusting.

There are no "correct" numbers as it's down to your own preference and varies according to the lighting conditons in the room where you use the TV. You should only ever make very minor adjustments to any of these settings and check the picture on the screen after making each adjustment and before making any others.

Hope this helps - please let me know if you need further assistance.

Its glittery white because i briten the color but when darken it gets green

you must re-adjust in the RGB (Red-Green-Blue) setting. depending on the brand of your TV, because there are set manually from the TV (you must open the cover of the rear of the TV). and there is a set directly from the remote only, with the open "factory settings", then you can re-adjust RGB color, especially green, not too dominant with the other colors (RED-BLUE). how to set is that you need to neutralize the color, (color TV sets to zero level) so that the image becomes black and white. if the green is too dominant, then Decrease the level of Green Bias or Green Cut off/ G-drive.

How do I fix the color on my tv

In the steup menu there should be a setting called "HUE" try adjusting that. If that does not work, you may have lost "green drive" circuits in your TV.
If the menu windows have the right colors, try playing a DVD or a video on it. If they look good you may have a problem with channel tuner or antenna.

Philips 23PF9966/37 color problem!

Most likely you can adjust it in the Service Alignment Mode (SAM).

Press 062596 followed by the STATUS button (upper left). Navigate to "White Tone", press the right key to enter and select "Normal" mode. Set the colors:

Red = 135, Green = 128, Blue = 133.

The "Cool" and "Warm" menus are deltas from the "Normal" settings:

COOL: R -3, G -1, B 5
WARM: R 2, G -3, B -13

Press the "MENU" button to return to the main menu, then the "Power" button to turn the TV off.

Picture color

I would recommend purchasing a calibration DVD that will walk you through the steps to alter your TV settings for a correct picture. The two most common can be found in many places like Amazon or possibly your A/V store of choice:
1) Digital Video Essentials (DVE)
2) Avia

If the picture can't be set to look right using these, then at least you will have them to calibrate your next TV that replaces it.
