Question about GE 35GT740 35" TV

1 Answer

Reduced contrast and now can't access menu to get back.

I faded the screen to have sound and no picture (was listening to a concert over a dinner party) and now can't re-access the menu (cos i can't see anything!). I've tried pushing the menu button and scrolling down with the remote to what i think are the picture controls but doesn't seem to work. Any way of resetting the TV?

There's a master brightness potentiometer on the flyback of the TV inside.
try to tweak it slightly with your tv ON until your see some picture.

I pushed something got to somewhere changed screen color. Internet color black background ghostlike pictures hair and stuff white now I want it back the way can't find it can anyone tell me where to find...


Sounds like you turned on the High Contrast setting in the Ease of Access section.

You can try and use the default key shortcut to deactivate it left ALT + left SHIFT + PRINT SCREEN.

Or navigate to the Ease of Access section through the control panel. Open control panel > Ease of Access > Ease of Access Center > Set Up High Contrast > (try) Choose a High Contrast Theme

Let me know if that helps

////my insignia NS-LTDVD26 turns on but has no light. What I mean is you can vaguely see the picture faded but it isnt lightingthe picture up to view. What can I do?


First try setting your contrast and brightness. It's a balancing act so you'll work with, but put more on the contrast. Also if you have access to a user friendly picture adjustment work with it. That increases the amplitude going to your color guns and your color temperature. If these are not on the set itself take you remote and hit menu and brouse the menu for control of these functions. Hue is an important function, it mixes red and green to get facial tones true. I hate to tell you this part, that's why I saved it for last. What you described it a good sign of the screen wearing out. It's the same thing that happens ocassionally in TVs with CRT Tubes. Hope the adjustments fix it, DanGill

Zen v plus 2gb - i reduced the contrast to 0 level and i cant read anything on the screen to bring it back to any other level..wht should i do now


There should be a detailed user guide on your Installation and Applications CD you had together with your device. Try to find the steps for adjusting contrast step by step while listening the sequence of pressing buttons in the manual. If it isn't succesful or you have not it, try to make reset of your item. Here is a picture where is the reset button:

I cant get the color right. its to red??? any help? i did notice with the back cover off, there are 6 adjustment screws


yes! those are the screen and focus adjustments. 3 for screen, 3 for focus. try this. go in menu....turn down color, brightness, contrast all they way down. you should then have no picture, but in your case a little red. then go to back of tv and turn those 3 screen adjustments all the way down. slowly turn the screens back up until you get barely a picture. because remember, your brightness and contrast is all the way down. the picture should be dim but seeable and with red, green, blue adjustments, make it a black and white picture. when balanced..... turn up color , brightness, contrast in menu. enjoy!

Picture fades in and out


Some newer TV's are equipped with a ROOM SENSOR which will change the Contrast and Brightness according to the amount of light going into the Sensor. While watching DVD's or Movies the output of light from the TV screen changes sometimes affecting the Sensor. While Computers are pretty consistent with light output.  Go into your TV Menu and look for ROOM SENSOR or something similar and turn it off. If not then check in the TV Menu Video controls and see if there are any Contrast or Brightness functions set to AUTO. If so grab a DVD with THX and they have a TV Calibration that is very easy to set-up your TV too.

Problem with Samsung SyncMaster 226BW


Click the top button on the side of the monitor to open the monitor's settings. In the "Picture" Settings, scroll down to "MagicBright" and open those settings. Chances are you have it set to "Dynamic Contrast". Switch that up to any of the other settings and then it won't try to adjust the gamma based on what is on the screen.

Hope this helps, I struggled with the same problem for quite a while until I found this setting.
