It seems to be random not all ways in the same place on the screen.any where there is a light place like white on the coller of someones shirt, or in a cloud in the sky I see these red or pink blotches?
I have adjusted the picture setting a hundred different ways and still have the problem. its about 6 months old and seems to start to show up about an hour after turning the tv on......?

There is some voltages that need adjusted in your tv and possibly the z sustain board needs replaced if the voltage adjustment doesn't fix it.

The skin tones on people's faces are different colors and shadowed and I can't find my owner's manual.

its ok, pause the screen and get a wax crayon the colour that you want the peoples faces to be and colour over them on the screen. when you have fully enjoyed that frame scrub it off and pause the video 1 second later. eventually you will make the whole movie like this the exact colour you want it.................

My samsung tv LN40B630 when you look at peoples faces they seem to fade in and out or go out of focus. what can I do?

Try looking at the on screen setup menu for auto-contrast, or auto-skin tone adjustment, turn them off to see if it helps.

Hello , I just purchased a 26" Toshiba LCD/HD flat screen TV today. The floor model had the nicest picture at Circut City of the other 26" TVs - but they were hooked up to receive HDTV. When I got it home,...

Yes, the newer flat panel TV's look great with HDTV but amplify the substandard analog TV signals.

I would compare the non HD to VCR quality. If that is what you are seeing then this is normal with non HD broadcasts (typically the channels 1-100).

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.
