Why cant i change the tint of my picture? the menue keeps skipping the tint option


If you're watching UK TV broadcasts then we don't have a need for tint. Similarly, with HDMI sources you shouldn't need tint either because the TV's colour decoder isn't active.

Tint is a throw-back to the American analogue TV system called NTSC. Their system doesn't lock the colour phase to the sync signal. So depending how far the TV was from the transmitter the colour would be further and further out of whack. Hence the industry joke that NTSC stood for Never Twice (the) Same Colour ...N - T - S - C. The Tint control was used to re-time the colour signal. The UK didn't have this issue because our TV system (PAL - Phase Alternate Line) includes information to lock the colour signal phase.

Strictly speaking, Tint is only required with NTSC analogue composite signals. This is where the brightness information is mixed with colour on a sub-carrier frequency. So, that would be signals via an aerial lead or from the yellow video connection which is how most of us first see a composite signal. These signals are encoded as NTSC. Any signals where the colour and brightness (luma) information is kept separate shouldn't need Tint. So, S-video, Component and RGB at 60Hz all bypass a TVs NTSC decoder. If the TV is correctly designed then the Tint option should not be available. Some TV manufacturers break the convention though, for the simple reason that many old school US consumers grew up adjusting Tint, so it's too much of a culture shock to take away that feature.

To recap then, if Tint isn't available then it's because the signal doesn't need that adjustment. The colour timing is already bang on accurate.

Unable to adjust the tint


Hi,

I think your TV may not have this option at all. However, I can also come up with other ideas:

Some adjustments might become unavailable depending on the input or content, have you tried adjusting this parameter in different inputs? e.g. TV channels, HDMI, composite, component? Or different content? e.g. HDMI input but with a signal from a bluray player playing a bluray disc vs. signal from a bluray player playing a DVD. If you don't see the tint "unlocked" in any of these different scenarios the option might as well be natively unavailable.

Can't adjust tint and can't reset default because I don't have a remote


The tint is factory set and cannot be adjusted, you can advance in the menu with the buttons on the side of the TV for example VOL+ and VOL- would be left and right, CH+ and CH- would be up and down.

Need to change tint, color on screen using the remote of course


Since you do not provide the make and model number of the TV so we can look for the user manual for you to read on how to make adjustment to your TV.
You just have to get to the MENU button on the remote for the ON screen setup menu and look for Picture adjustment set up to adjust the Pictures.
It should show Brightness, Contrast, Tint, Color adjustment choices.

Magenta Color


Here is something that may help from the toshiba.com website under your model number television. Q. Why are people on my screen green?
Models: 32HL17, 37HL17, 42HL17, 42HL167, 47HL167, 52HL167, 42HL167, 42LX177, 46LX177, 52LX177, 57LX177
REF:FAQLCD00107
If the problem is not the connections, try adjusting the tint on your television. A high tint setting will usually create a green
image on the screen where as a low tint will create a more red hue. In order to access your television's tint:
1. Press the “MENU” button on your remote control and use the LEFT or RIGHT arrow keys and select the
VIDEO menu.
2. Then use the UP and DOWN arrow keys to highlight PICTURE SETTINGS and press the "ENTER" button on
your remote.
3. Next use the UP and DOWN arrow keys to highlight TINT then use the LEFT or RIGHT arrow keys to adjust the
TINT. If the picture is too green the tint will need to be lowered.
4. Once you have adjusted the tint to your liking, use the DOWN arrow key to highlight DONE and press ENTER. The toshiba customer service telephone number is : 1-800-631-3811. I hope this helps you with your problem.

Samsung txh1970 tv screen has green tint


I encountered the same problem with a color computer monitor several years ago. Everything went green. The repair techies told me that's a sign that the power supply is going bad. You will not be able to adjust the color. You will have to either fix it or replace it. Hope this isn't a common problem with this model Samsung TV.

Tint does not work.


This actually prabably being caused by a fungus in the tubes. This model is knowen for fungus to grow in the tubes and cause a pink or red tint. If you are interested in reparing this yourself you will need to change the coolant in the tubes. I have a PDF file that will instruct you on how to complete this. If you have a repairman do this for you you will most likly pay $300-$400 to have this fixed.
Let me know what way you want to go.
