Question about Mitsubishi VS-55705 55" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

My tv has no color!

When I am watching something it is in black and white. But when the video mute turns on it displays in blue and all of the menus display in full color. I have tried to run the cable straight into the tv and I also tried a digital camera in the 3rd input, all with no success.

Re: My tv has no color!

Hey did you ever find a fix for this problem? i have the same problem. if i put a fan behind it it fixes the problem which leads me to believe a fan may be burned out inside the tv.

Phillips Magnavox 9P6040 C104 tv color adjustment help

If you turn color off and stand back and examine the screen---if it is not black and white but yellow looking you have bad Glycol in the blue picture tube which is quite common.

Easy way to know for sure is with set on and rear cover removed peek with a small mirror at the three lens---don't touch anything with the set on===each tube red,blue, green should have a picture with the set on.

Likely you will find the blue one looks like a floodlight with little or NO image/picture.

Green and blue faded

Some of these had bad picture tubes--(model indicated here uses 3 tubes)

Simple test is go to a black and white channel and turn color to zero= is the screen black and white or some other color?

Also go to a unused video input and look at screen=all you should see is black screen with the input number in green= any other color and something may just need to be adjusted.

Toshiba 50H81 very dark, blurry picture on all inputs.

check if the problem looks zig zag looking or it its not present in the PIP window. If so this may be an issue with the hypermodule - you can google TV repair Kits to find parts.

You need to calibrate the colors

The first step in calibrating your television lies in paying attention to your surroundings. Sit in the same spot you'd normally sit in to watch your TV. Then, make sure the lighting is at the same level you'll be using to watch movies: setting your TV to overcompensate for a brightly-lit room may give you distorted results. Watching in complete darkness may cause undue eyestrain, but a dim, diffuse light behind or to the side of your LCD TV is best. Just make sure to avoid any glare or reflection on the screen.

Next, be sure your display has "warmed up" for at least a half hour before attempting any calibration; this is to ensure that all the components of the display are at normal operating temperature and best approximate normal viewing conditions. You can take this time to familiarize yourself with the various display controls on your particular TV--get the manual out if you have to. The better you know which controls are available on your LCD TV, the better your end results will be. Though different manufacturers give different names to the controls, these are the levels you'll be adjusting:

  1. Black Level, normally found on the Brightness control
  2. White Level, usually called Contrast or Picture
  3. Sharpness, or sometimes Detail
  4. Color Saturation, usually labeled Color, or maybe Chroma
  5. Color Tint, also known as Hue

Beyond these basic settings, many modern TVs come packed with so-called "picture enhancements" which in reality do nothing but spoil an otherwise accurate, lifelike picture. Take a moment to dig through your TVs menus and disable any of these "features." What you're looking for is anything labeled edge enhancement or detail enhancement, flesh tone or color "correction," etc. This is a broad generalization, but basically anything not listed in the five controls above can be safely turned off. Another thing to check for is often called a "Picture Mode," or something similar: in reviews, we often find best results from a Movie or Cinema mode, which usually gives the most accurate picture with the least "enhancement." A Normal mode is a safe bet when this isn't available, but definitely avoid anything called Vivid, Dynamic, or Sports mode.Sports mode may make the grass look nice and green, but unless you're watching The Masters, it's probably not that green in real life; Sports mode is just ruining the color.

On a similar note, have a look at the options available for your LCD TV's backlight settings. Like many of the settings, the backlight is probably set to its highest brightness, which is probably too bright for comfortable extended viewing, and shortens the lifespan of your LCD TV as well. Drop this setting down at least to it's "normal" value, or even try out the Low Power or Power Saver option if it's available (in dimly lit rooms).Finally, a word about Color Temperature. Without getting into the rather complicated science behind it all, Color Temperature basically refers to the peak wavelength of a light source, which affects the color tint given to images which should be "pure" white. Suffice it to say that while most video is produced to what's called a "6500K Standard," (6500 degrees Kelvin), not every TV comes out of the box set to display that standard properly. In fact, factory settings are very rarely are set close to 6500K.

Philips 60PP9200D went black and white.

Hi , it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.Here's how your tv works: Basically there's 3 LCD chips that create the colors and image by blending together.When these chips start to melt you will get those blue spots, pixelation ,black and white picture,even vertical lines.You will need to replace the light engine. Have a blessed one!

Green tint

Is the green color on displays as well. (Displays means the video generated by changing the volume or activating menu-and seeing if this is green as well. Secondly, turn the color all the way down to zero. Do you see a "normal" black and white picture? If you do, then the picture tubes are not the problem and you have a failure in the color processing area. Let me know....
