Try this.... First, go into picture menu and reset it. Next turn contrast all the way up. Turn the sharpness all the way down. Make sure the tint is in the middle. Adjust brightnesses accordingly. If that don't work, just drop me a line and i will explain more

Best regards

There is a Video problem with my Samsung LCD. The sound is clear but Colour Balance Setting is disturb. The Colour is mixing with each other. Can You tell me the procedure for My TV Setting?

Before you set up try a reset

Resetting The Picture And Sound To The Factory Settings
as far as advanced settings are concerned, set the contrast backlight and brightness so you can see the best blacks without it looking too milky, the best whites so you can discern the whites and they aren't clipped, then look at colour balance if it looks wrong when you turn the colour off.

It does not look like there is something wrong with electronics in your TV. Most likely settings for picture are got messed up. It could be TV settings or source (cable box, etc. settings).
Using remote control of your TV find picture settings in menu and make sure it set to "standard" instead of "zoom", "stretch", "wide" etc. You might need to do the same with cable/satellite box menu. Some devices have button "picture" or "format" on remote control for this purpose.
You can also connect DVD player first and see if picture is stretched as well to determine if it is TV settings are wrong or it is outside of TV set.

Best tv settings for samsung LE40A457

Best is kind of subjective since each person's eyes are different. If you are looking for a bright and vivid picture, you can go to the picture mode and change it to that setting. Usually it is called something like "Vivid" or "Dynamic." Besides that, it is all user preference. Most people prefer to just use the factory default settings.

Tv picture looks grainy like it was shot on video

well most lcd and plasma tv's above 36" will look grainy on standard definition because they are made for high definition so if you do not receive a high definition signal to your tv then that would most likely be the problem

P42HDTV Visio Plasma TV. The picture is bad grainy/snowy.

Doing some warranty work for Visio, I ran into this same problem. I replaced the video and power boards, among other things. Turned out to be a bad panel, which isnt viable to replace. Best to get Visio to agree they made a lemon (as all their products are in my humble opinion) and have them send you a new tv, or even better, buy a tv that is NOT a visio. You can get great deals on LG and Samsung these days, both decent quality tvs.
