First: Do a hard reset of the internal electronic codes. This is done by disconnecting the power cord for 4 hours. That will automatically set everything to default when you power it back up.

Secondly: Do the whacking test just to make sure there are no cold solder joints, loose wires or bad connectors acting up inside. Smack the cabinet on the sides, top, back, etc. to see if you can get the picture back.

If the above procedures do not help (I give it about 30% chance), then you will need to get it repaired.

hope u will b helpfull

The color will not adjust. we have followed the instructions in the booklet but that did not work. the picture is blavk on one's face and normal on the other. just a dark picture most of the time.

This problems can't be repair sorry.The problems u have is the effect of the LCD screen panel itself shorting out.The LCD screen panel is slowly getting darker and darker eventually will ingorf half of the screen or more.Than the evidence more clears is not the tv electronics,but the LCD screen panel display itself.Sorry the LCD screen panel,replacement is not an option,because it is 90% inportant to the tv and it limited production by the tvs corporations and only can buy those LCD screen panels from the tvs corprations themselves.They'll sell the LCD screen panel price the same as a new tv.Sorry this tv now,dosen't worth as a whole tv anymore,now it only can be used for as eclectronic boards for salvaging for boards to used as parts,that it.
