Green tint on picture 60in mitsubishi

Turn the color all the way off---examine the screen to see if black and white or screen green in areas or whole screen.

The other possible issue is tint will not vary enough from green to purple when adjusted.

Two different issues--which do you seem to have?

Contrast really dark but seems to improve after the tv has been on several hours

You may have a problem with the inverters in the unit, they are responsible for lighting up the back panel. Check or have checked the power supply voltage to the inverters, should be around 18-24 volts DC. Also leaky capacitors on the power supply will cause this issue as well as leaky or puffy capacitors on the inverter.

I just purchased a Sanyo Hdtv Lcd and the picture quality if off the picture seems to come out greyish or pale....i'm not getting a true color. Is there some adjustments that I should know about? I tried...

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.

Red Tint on Screen

This is normal and is a color calibration issue.

For correct color, NEVER use the "WARM" setting. Why? Too red. You cannot get REALISTIC or ACCURATE color using the "Warm" setting.

Since we are speaking of Samsung, first avoid the "Flesh Tone" adjustment. When things are set correctly there is no need for this adjustment. It is a quick fix and not for the "discerning eye".

1. First, access the "Color Temperature" menu. From here select "Cool2" or the coolest temperature setting.

Note: For Samsung use "Cool2", or if not available, "Cool1". Samsung has inadvertently increased calibration confusion by issueing TVs that have just "Cool1", and TVs that have both "Cool1" and "Cool2" :0[

For other brands, use "Cool", or "High", or "+6500k". Anything lower artificially reddens the picture and compromises detail.

2. Now return to the color settings and reduce "Color" to between 30 and 40 (on a 100 scale). The sweet spot is just near the place where the color rapidly washes out.

3. To round out the color palette, move to the "Tint" adjustment and ADD a couple (3-5) clicks to the GREEN.

Adding the touch of green is what is needed to take out the last bit of "pink" and will make all the tones and all colors display properly.

I hope this helps!

The screen has a reddish tint to it. Seems like a color issue and not sure what to replace. The picture works fine but everyone is red. Not sure if there is a bulb to replace or what? Any suggestions? This...

You need a simple color adjustment. (Color Calibration)

You don't need to spend money on this. Try it for yourself.

Your main problem is that your color temperature is set to warm.
You need to change temperature to COOL or 6500K depending, on how it is labeled.

You will see improvement, but there is a little more...
Move "Color" DOWN from it's current position (probably at 50) to somewhere between 30 and 40. (Just a couple of clicks above where the color rapidly washes out.)

At this point there will still be slightly unnatural color to skin tones, but all the artificial "sunburn" and blaring red will be gone.

Last (as far as color goes) move the tint 2 to 4 clicks toward green. This added green tint balances the color so that the flesh tones become completely accurate and realistic.

For even better detail, continue your home calibration here:

I can't seem to correct a tint problem. The tv turns on and the tint doesn't change. A friend says it could be a vidoe card?

Go to menue on controller, then Picture, then adjust Color and Tint to you taste. The color ajusts Blue and Green move left more blue move the slider right more green. The Tint controlls red. More red move right less left. Also chech Color temp setting.

Take time to get used to the settings, you may think the screen looks dull at first. The truth is most people have way too much contrast on their TVs.
These settings will also work for Cable or Dish hookups, in which case you may change the Noise Reduction option to Medium to reduce signal noise.
