Re: tv screen - multicolours on screen

If your lucky the degausser ckt will fix your rainbow in a few days. When the set is cold and on power up, the degausser works before the picture comes up(hum noise). Worst case, the shadow mask is messed up and it will never be right.

Picture is greenish hue and cannot be changed from menu bar

The greenish hue cannot be adjusted from the menu. One has to do it from inside.First confirm by turning the color settings to zero using the remote. You should get a clean black and white image with no traces of any color ( inc: green ). If your TV is greenish , the green drive on the base of the picture tube has to be trimmed.
All you need is a screwdriver. There are dangerous voltages inside a TV, some as high as 27,000 volts !!!. Where the color adjustment has to be done there are voltages as high as 110 volts and 8000 volts.If you still want to make the adjustments yourself revert back for instructions

Recently the picture my Sony flat screen TV has started looking quite green - does not matter if we are viewing TV or DVD - everything has a greenish hue now. Its about 5 years old and out of warrenty. Is...

The set is probably magnetized and needs degaussing (demagnetizing).
All CRT type TV's have an internal demagnetizing circuit that is engaged when the set is first turned on after being off for the day.
If this circuit is working then you sometimes hear a "bonk" sound (about 1/2 a second long) when the set is first turned on. If this circuit isn't working the set will become magnetized over time and will have to be degaussed using a degauss coil available at a TV repair shop (cost aprox. $35.00) and you should have the circuit checked at the same time. A set will also become magnetized if a large speaker (magnet) or motor is close to the TV. Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

I have a rainbow of color about the screen. The TV fell out of the stand and now the color pattern is messed up. It fell face down.

sounds like a degaussing (magnetizing) problem.could be that the posistor inside the TV set got loose when the tv fell down. If you have experience soldering electronic components, you should be able to fix it by re-soldering. Otherwise, call a tv tech to do it.

Well i really want to know what level the coular and brightness lvel has to be on a toshiba t.v

You can set these controls to your liking, though a lower brightness setting might increase the life of the screen. First, set the brightness and contrast to a level that is pleasing to the eyes, then adjust the color to look realistic - enough color without being disturbing. If faces area look greenish or purplish, then also adjust the tint (sometimes called Hue) until you get accurate flesh tone. Flesh tone is the best thing to adjust for; when you get good flesh tone, the rest of the picture will look great. ALWAYS make adjustments during a live news broadcast, which tends to have the most accurate balance of brightness, contrast, color level and hue. Note that commercials are all recorded in different studios with different settings, and will usually not look right - it's best to just live with this than to constantly readjust the TV. There are also DVD's available which walk you through proper TV adjustment.

CRT TV Screen Colors Off

The tv needs degaussing (demagnetizing) unplugg the set tonight and then plug it and turn it on in the morning. You should hear a a "bonk" noise when the set is first turned on after being cold- this is the internal degausse circuit working and it should fix your problem if you don't hear the "bonk" sound or it does not fix your problem call arepair shop to have the degausse your set and possibly fix the internal degausse circuit.

Toshioba TV colour not sharp

Hi there!
There might be a problem on the degausing circuit. This demagnetises the screen every time you switch on. You may also have had a rise in the mains voltage thus magnetising the tube. Perhaps you can try switching off the TV at the wall for 24 hours or over night. If this does not work a repairer will have to remove it manually or repair the degausing circuit. Also make sure that there are no speakers or any magnetic items close to the TV. Good luck,JUS004
