Fixing the picture in my Philips rear projection tv

As far as mostly red--turn color to zero and examine screen--if not gray or black and white it may need the screen controls adjusted.

Dark---with back cover off clean the three lens this model has--they are the light source for your picture and if dusty picture will be darker and somewhat dull looking.

Answer is based on brand/model number listed here.

My hitachi 53udx10b was supposedly just serviced but the picture is extremely blue. Have tried adjusting picture to no avail. Help.

I am going to tell you a simple thing to do to know what your problem may be.

With the set on turn the color all the way to zero. Go to a channel if you can that is in black and white. What color is the screen?

If the answer is that it is blue in the background whoever serviced the set did not and could have removed front speaker grill and inspection plate behind it; there is a black plastic block with three screen controls (red,green,blue) and 3 focus controls (do not touch the focus ones.)

I suspect if the blue screen is there a slight adjustment of the blue screen down will correct this.

The picture with the color at zero should be black and white or gray. If blue is background color it will also be with color.

This is called gray scale; picture with color off has to be gray or black and white.

Before you rate this solution if you have questions make a comment right here and I will advise you.

There's a green hue over everything

One of your other color tubes( blue or red ), is blown. The green saturation you are seeing is beacuse you are missing a color to complete the picture. Rear projection t.v.'s are pretty cheap to fix with this problem. Just contact a t.v. repairman.

Yellow hue circle in middle of screen. after leaving tv on all night

spherical or oval shaped light starting in the center of your picture is an indication of an led backlit tv.. probably a hitachi. solution, replace light no garuntees not with led backlit sets.. was bad idea to begin with. when the leds start going they start at the center and branch out.

try this

use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.
