Use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.

I Have green squiggle lines that are moving around on the screen. I can minimize the lines by darkening the picture and toning down the color which makes the picture too dark. Any idea what is causing this...

Dark photos

Check your custom settings in the Lexmark printer utility. I have a different model but mine allows for lightening and darkening of output. Variations in ink density and paper differences make this almost a necessity.

Kenmore washer leaves dark streaks on light colored clothes

I suggest you first take a clean, white cloth wetted with a stronger solvent such as 'Oops,' carburator or brake cleaner (with these two, DON"T overspray, they will damage plastic and paint) and wipe the drum inside to make sure there is not some gunk adhering that is gradually depositing itself with each wash cycle.
If you have a shade-tree mechanic in the family, they may have gotten a gob of grease on clothing that transfered to the inside of your machine.
If you don't find enough on the cloth to have caused the problem, I think you have lost a seal on the drum-side of the transmission.

How old is the TV? More than 6-7 yrs? Then it's time to do a trade in. But if you are very attached to it, get a Technician to recondition the Picture Tube. This may give it life for another couple of years. You could also ask a technician to check the DC filter Capacitor for the HT line to the Video Drive circuits. Over time this capacitor dries out and also causes a darkening of the picture. It is normaslly a 100 mfd 160V capacitor.

Blue Ray Compatible? I have had my Hitachi 53SWX01W set for maybe 7 years or so. It is HD ready. My DVD player that I had hooked up to Component jacks #1 crapped out recently and I was using a portable DVD player in the front jacks. Everything always played perfect. I bought a Sony Blue Ray player and a Samsung HD Tuner over Thanksgiving and installed them. HD Tuner on component jacks #1 and the Blue Ray on CJ #2. Both with sound through fiber optic. The tuner was a snap and the picture is great. The Blue Ray was also a snap and Blue Ray disc's play great. My problem is DVD's! When playing a Standard DVD the picture will blank out radomly for 1/2 to 3 secounds and it may do it once or twice per disc or it may happen randomly throughout the disc. Sometimes it will not happen at all and the next day playing the same disc the picture will start blinking out again. There is no interuption in the sound or place in the movie, just a loss of picture! I have traded component jacks between the tuner and Blue Ray, I have change Component cables from very expensive to very cheap and back with no noticable difference. I exchanged the Sony BDP-350 Blue Ray player for another player with no success. I still have the same problems. When veiwing Blue Ray disc's The TV will display 1080i resolution with no problems at all. When playing standard DVD's the TV displays 480p resolution and the blinking problem happens. The Blue Ray player dosen't ramp up the picture quality on DVD's as I thought it would but that could be because I'm not using an HMDI cable which my TV does not have. Please HELP!!! Jim
