SOURCE: black screen

Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. The most common thing to go out is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board.
But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.

I would keep hounding them for the warranty issue. Why do you have to spend a dime if the TV is still under warranty? I would just keep at it.


I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

SOURCE: TV picture not available.

You may have multiple problems, one is the T-CON board and second can be due to unstable DC voltages.
You LCD TV works completely difference from Plasma TV, you only have one or two backlight inverter boards for back lights to light up the screen, the T-CON board drives the LCD panel for pictures.
Please see my basic troubleshooting guide here:

SOURCE: The only button that works is the remote power

Hi check to see if the volume button on the side is pushed in or sticking as this will cause all the buttons to not work as the micro thinks you are trying to turn up the button and thinks this button is depressed.

SOURCE: No picture on intermittent basis -

If you have tried using different input devices, looked for loose contacts
in power outlet, RC Jack, cable and connectors, the TV might need service.

I have a phillip magnavox big screen tv it works fine but the color is too dark i think i need a picture tube


If its the one indicated here or one like it :

The picture tube type (CRT) rear projection tubes require annual cleaning.

With set off and back removed locate the three large black lens atop the chassis--hard to miss them.

The are the red, green, and blue tubes and are your light source for the picture---------if dark and they are dirty or dusty the picture will be darker and not as sharp or clear as it once was..

spray some glass cleaner on a paper towel and wipe them clean.

Do not touch anything else in set and do it with set unplugged.

put back cover on and see if picture is noticeably improved; if so do it once a year or more if in a dusty place.

Let me know if you have questions.

Taking a picture, everything that is white is pink and dark pics


Oops, it looks like you have a couple of annoying problems with your Kodak camera.

Is your camera still in warranty by where you bought it (30 days) or the manufacturer (1 year)?

Color red seems to be more prominant...than other


I've had this problem with my projection TV recently. I would say your lens/lamp is to blame. It might be time to change it, depends on the last time it was changed, most of the time, the TV will tell you that it needs to be changed, but not always. I think your best bet is the TV lamp.

Jazz HDV178 horrible picture quality


This camera is an inexpensive camera that takes great videos. But it doesn't have a dedicated shutter for taking still images.

You are going to find an increase in picture quality if you hold it very still, perhaps use a tripod, or put it on something stable to take the picture. Also, make sure the you have plenty of light for your subject when you take the picture.

There is not setting that you can change to fix this. Sorry, it's not what you wanted to hear, but don't let it stop you from rating my solution a fixya.

More problem than negative photo in web camera intex.


if its a WEBCAM issue then try to get replacement i think sometimes these webcams start giving dark pictures bcoz of the CCD or CMOS engine fault bcoz normally they are lower quality used by most vendors Acer is best in this category, and if ur lcd is showing different colours then it might be the LCD fault try VGA out to some other monitor or lcd if the colors are ok then ur LCD is going to be dead in coming days other wise ur vga is gettin hard time try n temme

FOGGY-HAZY PICTURE


The contrast setting should always be more than the brightness setting, it's purely common sense to have the black levels dark and the white levels light. I advise your brightness to be 40, and your contrast to be set to 60.

You shouldn't alter the hue, as most manufacturers would have spent significant time balancing this anyway, so set this to 50 and leave it alone.

The saturation shouldn't be altered too much, the best bet is to set this to 55 and let it be. Also, the colour temperature shouldn't be changed atall, so set this to the default setting and leave it alone.

As for the sharpness setting, this should definitely be set quite low. I advise setting the sharpness to 40, and the reason for this is most people assume that the higher the sharpness the better quality and detail, and they're completely wrong.

If you do what I said, you should end up with a crisp, smooth and colourful picture.

Problem


Optics need cleaning, and a calibrator adept at what he does can redo the screen controls to bring back the bright levels you need. It can also be done in the user Black Level settings, tho that's not as good as service level.

Optics cleaning is a must tho on these units at this age. Regular and deeper as well.
