Re: need to find out how to adjust color

Im curious why you think you need to ajust the color do you have red screen? or missaligned colors?
If your B&W images look okay (bright and dark areas), either films, ads,
or turing the color off, you shouldn't tinker with grayscale
adjustments. You'll really mess up your set. Haven't seen many
complaints about 'red push' with Pioneers, but that may be the problem.
A further check would be the decoder test on the Avia disc. Also visit and search the Pioneer section for
similar complaints.

You need to turn down the voltage on all 3 crt's. You have a red one, a blue one and a green one. Slowly adjust the knob down until you don't see the shadow any more. Then adjust your color in the user menu.

see if there is a "default" option, if not set everything back to the middle, if the colors are still off you sure its not the convergence?
most big screens allow you to change "color temperature" it's like a default adjustment for 3 different brightness levels.... ie...COOL, WARM picture will show obvious changes in brightness

We just got a used 54 inch big screen zenith and the red and green need to be adjusted . It doesnt seem to be working with the arrow keys . What do we have to do to adjust the colors ?

replace the convergence Ics and that will correct the problem. If the colors wont adjust with the remote the ICs are defective. Please respond to this same post and I will list the correct ICs you need as well as where to get replacements with free instalation instructions.

Hitachi 50 Rear Projection color TV

the easiest way is to turn the color all the way down to zero. Then notice the overall color of the screen, if it doesnt appear as a good black and white picture you will have to adjust the screens. To do that you have to remove the speaker grill cover and the small access panel, then depending on the chassis you will see a small square with 6 dials on it 3 on top and 3 on the bottom it will have screen stamped on it. adjust those 3 untill your screen appears the best black and white picture as possible. Now if your chassis only has 3 dials on the sgaure control box those are focusdont adjust them. . then the 3 CRT boards will have the dials you need adjust those for the best black and white picture. when your satisfied that you have a good black and white picture. then turn your color back up and adjust the tint.Let me know if you need more assistance.
