Re: picture adjustment

Usually there is options in the menu button on the remote to fix the brightness contrast etc also make sure your hdtv cables (make sure you have these if not you will not have good picture)are working and connected properly.

Hitachi 46F500 TV has red and blurry picture.. what to do?

If this problem has been gradually getting worse, it is most likely to your picture tubes getting weak, and it is time to replace the set I'm afraid.
If the red is smearing off to the side of reddish objects in the picture it is most definately the tubes.

Pictures very dark, Brightness all the way up. Contrast does not adjust

I have the same problem. I was able to temorarily fix the issue by taking the back cover off and blowing all of the dust out. But this only worked for two days. Now the problem is back. Did you fix the issue with your tv? Thanks.

No picture, have sound

Dude, you dont have the same problem thanks for junking up my post.

Ok, so I have replaced the SUB power assembly and the SUB Defconvergence board, picture looks decent however magic focus just blanks the screen out and cannot adjust manually does the same thing.

Is there a way to enter the service menu and initialize the magic focus functions after servicing.

It must be using the saved ROM settings, but it wont let me adjust anything convergence wise.

Picture is dark

Pull the back off and tap on the deflection board. Does it get brighter? If so, you have a bad connection and or cold solder joint.
