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.................
