Re: Colors

Here is a couple of ideas, hope they help...Move any big speakers away from set, if there be any close by.
Also you will need to borrow a degaussing coil from someone, get them to explain to you and show you how to degauss a tv with the colors out of purity. Also, you may have a bad degaussing circuit in the tv...but definetly make sure no big magnetic speakers are in the same area or close to your tv. Hope this helps.
Another problem which would require someone knowledgeable of it, is a problem in the convergence circuit...depending on what brand of tv you have and how new it is...this problem causes an outline or color shadows around people and or objects.....the first problem above causes impurity or splotches of color in the video or picture.

The picture is green ?

The screen colors are all derived from three distinct colors. Red, Blue and Green. The colors can change due to a few problems. The purity or converge could have been disturbed due to magnetic interference, one or two of the color amplifiers have stopped working or the picture tube has failed. Color problems can be as easy as circling a high magnetic field coil in front of the set, known as 'degaussing' or extremely technical, frustrating and then hence expensive. Not much help, I know, but good luck.

Picture has red tint

I would unplug it from the wall for a while and see if that will help reset it. Also make sure there are no magnetic devices near the screen because this will change the screen color as well. Mine will mess up every once in a while so I just unplug it while I am off running errands, plug it back up when I come home and it seems to reset itself. Good luck

did u mean to adjust the picture setting then go for the following
1 press menu on the remote
2. using down arrow select picture quality and press ok. available options in picture quality and its use is listed below. you can use it according to your preference.

When exiting this menu, the Save Personal Picture Preset choice list will

My Sanyo HDTV's colors are whacked. Wat's up?

I kept digging for answers and while I was waiting I decided to turn it off for a while and see if it had an automatic degaussing feature. It was off for about 1/2 an hour and when I turned it back on, it looked good as new ... problem solved.

Display color changed from green/ white now to Red and blue?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your described problem is as you suspected, the green is missing. This is a common failure and is technically an easy/quick repair. Almost always, the culprit would be a cold solder or a faulty color drive transistor/IC. They would be located on the small squarish PCB (printed circuit board) at the very rear of the tube. Of course, worst case scenario would be a faulty CRT (picture tube), but that would be least likely.

Corrective measure would then be initially re-soldering above describe solder joints and/or replacing faulty transistor/IC.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Toshiba 20hlv15 image turns bright colors and will sometimes disappear.

I took the unit completely apart and reassembled it, making sure to check all harnesses. I have been running the TV since I put it back together and it has been fine so far (3 hrs.). I was hoping that it was just a loose harness4.gif when taking the unit apart. Although, I did not note a loose harness. The dvd1.gif player went wacky by just having the harness slightly off. I will run the unit some more and post my findings. I have to say I'm surprised that this is not a more common problem considering there are numerous people with this particular unit with the same issue. Also, just a note the unit was very clean inside, no dust issues, no blocked cooling ducts.

Only RGB colors appear

It looks as though the video chip, which also works the contrast may have went bad. I would say you may be in need of a new chip to correct the problem. Good Luck.
