Question about Philips 26PF9966 26 in. LCD Television
After turning on the TV, the picture is green and in certain settings (sport color mode) red can be seen as well. There appears to be no blue at all. When I unplug and replug the TV, the TV channel and sound indicators in the upper left and right corner of the screen come on blue and white, so all colors seem to be working for a short moment. Then, when the TV picture is displayed, the colors turn back to green and some red, no blue.
Does anybody know what causes this type of behavior?
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.
