Cannot adjust TINT control using HD inputs!

This model seems to have a MAJOR design flaw. You can only adjust the TINT when using the SVHS or TV inputs! When using anything plugged into the HDMI or component video inputs, the TINT adjustment is FIXED!!! I watched a Simpsons DVD and they looked a bit green. I was UNABLE to adjust the tint to correct this issue! POOR design! Are ALL plasma TV's like this??

Can't adjust tint in 50 HD Digital LCD TV Element

I called Element TV they said the Tint adjustment/controls on most Digital Element TVs are programmed for "Non adjustment"with digital signals:
On Large Element TVs , the "Tint" controls are used only for Analog Video and for NTSC viewing, but the controls are inoperative or blanked-out when watching PAL or SECAM digital signals (my is HDMI directly from Digital cable box).

Can you turn coax into rca cables since the maxent I have doesnt have a coax input

You can but the connection type is not the problem. If you have Coax cable or antenna type signal you need to put that into a tuner capable of providing the RCA (baseband or composite) video out with RCA audio as well. However if one is going that route with a HD display then the SVHS tyoe connector or even HDMI or some component level cables should be used to get the full benefit of the HD signal.
If your HDTV has no Coax input then it is not a TV but a display
device more like what is used in computers.

How do I adjust tint?

Within the past week bought this exact set, had the same issue & figured it out. The set does not allow tint adjustment for digital channels. Just tune to any analog non-HD channel and you'll be able to access the tint control & adjust. I have a more expensive Vizio set I've had a few years where this is not so. I think some of newer sets are being made this way.

What channel do i go to for svideo cable??

The TV doesn't output the TV as such, UNLESS it has what is called a "Monitor" Output Sockets on it. Then you can connect up to, say another "Screen" or Take the Outgoing Video, & Sound, and "Record" it to a PC, via a Video INPUT via a TV/Video INPUT card. BUT you cannot play the TV on the laptop, FROM the TV. like you wish to do. If your laptop has a TV card INSIDE your laptop, then you could use that and display the OUTPUT from that TV cards' tuner, on the TV. But not the "other" way around. That SVHS is ONLY an INPUT out from your PC. You can put you system into either "Cloned"mode, IE: Whats displayed on laptop screen,is also displayed on the TV, Or, you can have as you seem to now, Extended Desktop. I hope this clears things up for you. Also when using that SVHS connection the Audio comes OUT on the Red & White AV sockets on the set. So you need that cable and another pair for the Audio..

Cannot adjust color

Have you turned the controls from one of the presets? Presets are Vivid, Movie, etc. Most sets have to be in Custom or Customize to adjust the controls, likely on-screen with one of contrast, brightness, color, or tint selected. If those are horizontal bars then up/down selects which and right/left select decrease/increase or red/green for tint. Start with 50% if no reset (0% for R/G) or start with the non-Vivid settings. Consult AVS forums for you model to get better settings. Rules of thumb: Brightness should be as dark as possible without losing gray scale at lowest part. Contrast should not be so high that whites bloom or make it hard to see. Color should not blow out any color nor be unnatural. Tint is best judged on flesh tones. -Ken

Here is something that may help from the website under your model number television. Q. Why are people on my screen green?
Models: 32HL17, 37HL17, 42HL17, 42HL167, 47HL167, 52HL167, 42HL167, 42LX177, 46LX177, 52LX177, 57LX177
If the problem is not the connections, try adjusting the tint on your television. A high tint setting will usually create a green
image on the screen where as a low tint will create a more red hue. In order to access your television's tint:
1. Press the “MENU” button on your remote control and use the LEFT or RIGHT arrow keys and select the
VIDEO menu.
2. Then use the UP and DOWN arrow keys to highlight PICTURE SETTINGS and press the "ENTER" button on
your remote.
3. Next use the UP and DOWN arrow keys to highlight TINT then use the LEFT or RIGHT arrow keys to adjust the
TINT. If the picture is too green the tint will need to be lowered.
4. Once you have adjusted the tint to your liking, use the DOWN arrow key to highlight DONE and press ENTER. The toshiba customer service telephone number is : 1-800-631-3811. I hope this helps you with your problem.

Philips LCD HDTV -- color problems

I am having the same issue. I believe the issue to be somewhere in the transition between HD channels and non HD channels. A work around is to switch the input to another input such as DVD and then switch back to your cable input (mine is the HDMI input). I'm probing the web looking for why this happens and if there IS a permanant fix.

Vizio liquid crystal tv l32hdtv

Check the cable connections and/or replace the cables to the AV2 input.

If replacing the cable doesn't provide a solution, try running your DVD through the input. Since it works fine now, you would be checking the input AV2 by putting your working DVD. If the DVD plays with no problems, the input is fine.

Also try the VCR using coax into the TV instead of RCA into AV2. This will give you some idea about the condition of the VCR.

I suspect either the VCR or the cables.

Green Blotches and Bars

I have determined that mine had a problem with the composite input board. I was able to unhook the connections to this board inside the TV, after Akai, and the local repair guys couldn't figure it out....

The problem hasn't come back in a while, and since my setup is all HDMI/Component ins, I didn't affect me at all.

It looked like there was slight heat damage to the board, but not enough that it was caused by a design flaw, more like a manufacturing "accident".
