Re: color has too much red

Is this happening when you are switching between color tempature (Normal,Warm, and Cool). You wont be able to access it in normal menu.
You will have to accesss the service tech menu. enter "062596 then info", if u enter the code correct at bottom of screen you will see a warning menu only access by a service tech , continue in menu you will see on main option screen "alignment" enter this. Go to white point adjust the three temp settings (Normal, Warm, and Cool) settings as follows.
Color Temp. I Red I Green I Blue I

Cool 122 120 121

Normal 125 118 108

Warm 127 110 75
( These are factory specs u can tweak them to your own perference)

After u set these press left on remote and exit back to main service menu and store these setting before turning TV off set these settings

I see this alot when Philips manufactured the TV. The did store the settings.

No blue green yellow like in football peach color flags thrown peach color grass is blue green purple color is black etc etc

Are you using a component video connection (3 wires for the video, colored red, green, and blue)? It sounds as though you are, but correct me if you are using a different connection as the steps will be different. If so, ensure that they are all connected. You can also unplug one at a time while watching the picture. If the colors DON'T change when unplugging any individual wire, then check that wire from end to end looking for cuts/corrosion/etc... If necessary, replace the cable. Also make sure that they're plugged in to the right jacks, they should be color coded. NOTE: there is a red jack for the video AND for the audio. Check carefully that these aren't mixed up.

I turn on the Tv the sound comes on & the picture is blank Cablevision was here & said it's a problem in the set

He is probably not an expert (just kidding, of course he's not..) First, try connecting the Cablevision Box to another TV (if you don't have another HD TV, use the yellow/white/red Composite connection.) If there is still no picture, the box is no good. If there is, then try a different output from the Box or other inputs on the TV. Are you using HDMI (HD connection) out of your Box? Is the TV 720p or 1080p? Set the Box up (from the menu) according to the specs of your TV. Hope I helped.

Trying to hookup old dvd/vcr to new flat screen. have cable box hooked up nad working. dvd/vcr no hdmi connections. what cable hookup do I use

You need to use composite inputs. They have three connections, yellow for video, white for left audio and red for right audio. It does not matter which input you go into. I would imagine there are about 7 separate inputs like the ones I described, just remember which one you use because you will have to set the input to that number to see the VCR/DVD later. Get a phono or RCA patch cable and connect the same colors from out on the vcr/dvd box to in on the tv. Turn everything on, set the tv to the proper input using the menu or input selection and you should be able to view video tapes or dvds. Let me know if you need more help.

DVD/VCR hook up to HDTV. No audio on DVD or VCR, no video on VCR

When you use component audio, it may shut off the side a/v audio settings. Try restoring all defualts (any changes you have made will be lost by doing so) according to p. 32 of the manual:
Menu --> Setup --> Reset --> Yes

Yellowish color from DVD

Hello Tsmith4,
Have you tried another source such as a HD cable box on the same component input (Y Pr Pb) By doing this you will eliminate the TV or the DVD player. If the picture shows great using the cable box on that same input then we will assume that the TV is ok for now. You may want to also check the DVD menu under progressive scan that it is set to progressive scan. if the picture is still not good, we would want to look at the I/O board on the TV. The red path after the Video switch maybe open. If this is the case we will have to go to board replacement. I will tell you what board to change.

Best regards

Green hue on all inputs

Most likely there is a failure in the video processing. The flickering was from the failing components breaking down.

Your set can be serviced by an experienced tech who has spare boards and the facilities to service your set.

My picture has a green and blue hue to it.

After spending a day trying to fix the TV, I found out the problem was actually with my cable box. I have an HD DVR recorder. We unplugged the cable box and plugged the TV directly into the cable in the wall and it worked. So we took the cable box back to our cable company and got a new cable box. (Can't live without the DVR!!)

DVD cables

You have to plug your DVD cables into the "input" connectors on your tv. Input audio and input video. Also there is either a switch on the back of your tv or in your menu where you have to choose "component video". Or it might be labled Video 1, Video 2, Video 3, etc. You might have both a switch on your TV and a choice in your menu. If so, both have to be set to "component Video. Sometimes on the back of your set, the switch is not labeled. It just has "arrowed" lines coming from the different switch positions and leading to the "outputs and inputs" on the back of the set. Set the switch so that the lines lead to the red, blue and green INPUTS on the back of your set. Your problem is not serious. It is just a matter of "telling" your TV that you are using "component video". Component video is when you are using the red, blue, and green inputs. It is also possible that your DVD has another output besides "component out" and also has a switch. Make sure this switch on the back of your DVD is in the "component OUT" position. Your DVD might also have a connector on the back that looks like connectors on the back of VCR's and most TVs. This is an "F" connector and the cable has to be screwed on. It's just like a cable tv cable. Screw a cable into the "out to tv" on the back of your DVD and screw the other end of the cable into the "RF" INPUT (or cable input) connector on the back of your tv. Be sure to look ALL through your TV menu and DVD menu. The DVD sets to "component OUT" and the TV sets to "component IN". Hope this helps.
