Picture settings won't save

I have attempted to adjust the picture settings to "cinema" but they eventually revert back to "vivid". I don't see a button that saves the settings. I'm not sure what to do. Also, when it reverts back to "vivid" the volume readjusts, usually higher. Please help.

SOURCE: Plasma TV Picture Periodically Blurry/Color is Distorted

This sound more like a cable issue. Also check the leads going from your cable box to the set/ If you are using component cables one of them may be loose.

Ican't qdjust the color on my Samsung LED screen


Follow the below mentioned steps :

1.Turn on the LED TV and let it warm up for 30 to 40 minutes before making any changes or adjustments.
2. Put on the lights that you would normally use when watching the TV. You want to create the same ambiance that would constitute normal watching conditions for you. Make sure there is no glare or reflection from other items in the room such as a mirror.
3.Open the menu on the screen of the LED TV with your remote control and find the options for adjusting the color, contrast and brightness. Menu options will vary by TV, but look for options that will say "Contrast," "Color" and "Brightness."
4.Start with the "Brightness" control. It would be best to have a DVD playing so that you can get a better idea of the control settings. Pause the picture at a place that you can see a variety of scenery, such as sky, mountains and people in the forefront. Adjust the "Brightness" by pressing the up and down arrows until you are happy with the picture. Press "Save" or "OK" to set the brightness at this level.
5.Repeat this with the "Contrast" and "Color" controls, remembering to save your settings. Look for the "Mode" setting. Press the arrow to get to "Normal" or "Movie/Cinema." Press that setting and save it.6.Turn off any settings that are titled "Flesh Tone Correction" or "Vivid Sports." These will make the colors unnatural, use up energy and damage the TV over time.

KDL-52S5100 Picture settings always revert back to "vivid" mode after 5 mins or so.


More than likely the TV is in the "retail" mode which intentionally reverts to the "vivid" mode after a short period of time on the other settings, deemed best for retailer display puposes.

Follow the "return to factory settings" instructions found in the operators manual, pg 21 of KDL52S5100. Only the first half of the instructions are needed to put the TV in "home" mode, the 2nd slection to make after "language. After you have slected "home" I do not beleiev you need to any go further into the setup menu.

"Turn the TV on. Press and hold the "^" (up arrow) button on the remote and then push the "Power" button on the TV. Release the "up" arrow."

You should now be back to start, select langauge and home mode and then exit.

You now should be good to go and your picture mode selections should now stay put.

Sony has live tech help "chat" and I would suggest using them if this doesn't get it done - but I'm 99.95% sure this is your fix.

When i change the picture settings to my custom selections, it always reverts back to the vivid preset after about 5 minutes.


Most likely you are in "retail" mode which intentionally reverts back to "vivid" which is deemed best for store display purposes.

Go to pg 21 of the manual and follow the first half of the reset instructions. Once you've chosen "home" (after first selecting "langauge") you need not go any deeper into set-up mode, just exit at this point.

99.95% sure this will solve your problem and your "picture" selections will now stay put.
