I am suggesting you to hit the menu button on the tv itself or on the remote... then the following will appear:
picture sound set up
when you see that please hit the picture then you will read the AV mode please hit that by hitting the arrow next or up and down volume button so that you can pick what mode do you want also you can change/adjust the bright, contrast,sharp,color, tint...

Help what can it be!!!!????
The same thing happened to my HLP5063W. Researching the internet forums I concluded the problem was with the color wheel, which I replaced. As it turns out the old one was completely smashed. Go to www.jangro.com for replacement instructions.
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.
Sounds like you have a jammed / shorted out button on the control panel... Try un-plugging the tv, and then unplug the "button panel" on the front of the tv...see if you can turn the tv on with the remote. Sometimes if one of the buttons gets shorted, it will "lock" the processor from doing ANYTHING else, as it thinks you are holding down the defective button. If this works, simply have the defective switch or control panel replaced, or just leave it unplugged and use the remote only! Hope this helps!
