I'm getting a lot of red in picture. Automatic calibration doesn't make it better. Is this a bulb problem? or does it need to be adjusted?

Red error light will not turn off


  • Needs to be calibrated.
  • See directions.
  • Not very straightforward.
I saw a very dark image in the file that actually saved black. So I recalibrated aiming at a light bulb. Very fuzzy but operational.

Then I did it again on a plain white sheet of paper. Not too good but still better. Now I need a sheet of glaring white.

My 1st mistake was to work on the scanner on a black desktop. I poked the buttons around and calibrated it black!

I have a Hitachi 55vs69 I replaced the bulb and it went out in 6mo. Is there something else that might be wrong.


The number of hours, coupled with the TV viewing conditions, is a more accurate way of interpreting the proper bulb life expectations.

For example; a TV like yours that is set to watch the winter Olympics for two hours per day will not last as long as one that is set to watch something like Ghost Hunters for two hours per day. The reason is the output demand on the bulb...brighter pictures will burn it out faster.

The best way to get the most life out of any bulb, or any TV as a whole, is to properly calibrate your TV. Getting the correct picture levels does more for the TV than simply improve the picture quality.

I recommend a calibration tool you can find on DVD called Avia. Or you could simply use some of the calibration images provided with some THX certified movies. These are by far not the best available choices, but are the simplest and much better than the ***** eye. The discs are intended for calibrating the output of video from dvd playback, but you still could use the same calibration settings for all of your outputs if you wish.

The screen has a reddish tint to it. Seems like a color issue and not sure what to replace. The picture works fine but everyone is red. Not sure if there is a bulb to replace or what? Any suggestions? This...


You need a simple color adjustment. (Color Calibration)

You don't need to spend money on this. Try it for yourself.

Your main problem is that your color temperature is set to warm.
You need to change temperature to COOL or 6500K depending, on how it is labeled.

You will see improvement, but there is a little more...
Move "Color" DOWN from it's current position (probably at 50) to somewhere between 30 and 40. (Just a couple of clicks above where the color rapidly washes out.)

At this point there will still be slightly unnatural color to skin tones, but all the artificial "sunburn" and blaring red will be gone.

Last (as far as color goes) move the tint 2 to 4 clicks toward green. This added green tint balances the color so that the flesh tones become completely accurate and realistic.

For even better detail, continue your home calibration here:

My Sony KDF-60Xs955 rear projection has a blueish green tint on the screen. it is really noticable during darker scenes and is distoring the colors in other pictures. A tech came out and tried to adjust...


this is normally either a color calibration (easy) or a light adjustment(if burnt out very bad)

for the color calibration you want to go into your menu setting and look for the color calibration menu it should give you two cross hairs to align causing a different color yellow red is orange green is blue yellow and so on after ensuring all theese setting are correct your best bet is going to be taking it to or having a television repair man come to you to check the bulbs hopefully if just an adjustment needs to be made cost should be minimal unfortunately if a light is burnt out its usually cheaper to buy a new tv

hope this helps
please leave feedback
thanks

My sony KP-65WS500 had a bad red picture tube. So


It was probably my post--SD TECH--you may want to tweek the red screen a little up or down--if it still acts up it is the picture tube--

The adjustment procedure is only meant to help and not cure the problem--try to get it as good as you can and live with it.

I have been involved with replacing those tubes and it is no picnic--you remove one--send it out for rebuild and put it back and do major adjustments--usual cost for rebuild is near 300 JUST FOR THE TUBE--real problem is that sooner or later the two other tubes will start to act up.

I composed those instructions to try to give people an option--to buy them some time--the picture tube is what some call a bulb--one in the same thing.

Lots of these sets had all three tubes changed when under warranty--what really happened is Sony put the wrong tubes in the sets to begin with.

My best advice is adjust it as best you can and when it goes replace the set.

Regards, SD TECH

How do I adjust the HD quality for a crisper picture? I have tried Magic Focus, but need to know where the sharpness or contrast can be tweeked .


The magic focus function is to electronically align the red, green and blue beams. So all it can cure is colored ghosts. The contrast, brightness and sharpness adjustments are in the customer menu settings. With the remote just push menu and select video or picture adjustments. Those adjustments are in there.

Looks like 3D tv


Try doing a calibration. Projection TVs work with 3 picture tubes (Red, Green, Blue). The Red may be off to one side causing the hues.

The manual is available here for instructions on how to perform calibration:

Sony projection Tv KP-65XBR10W has no picture or sound


I had a Sony recommended serviceman come in to analyze te same problem for me. Turned out to be a major part called the 'D' board. Cost for part around $400 if it could still be gotten and at least $300 in labor. Goodbye TV! My money will be better spent on a replacement LCD/Plasma TV since prices are dropping and picture quality will be dramatically better than the old beast.

Sony Plasma KDE-P42XS1 Television


We had the same problem discovered it was the TV bulb was going out. Thought the light would blink before that happened according to the book but found out it only blinks when it goes out completely. Buy the bulb and put it in yourself, it's easy and will save you at least $100.00

Replaced bulb and converge problems


After replacing a Picture tube convergence/geometry allignments can be quite extensive and if they're not fairly precise the sensors for the auto conv. can not be calibrated therefore your auto conv. not working as you described. The key is usually the geometry start with the green lines and get them as square as you can then align the red/blue. Since the auto is not going to blue that often means the blue is to far out and the sensors are not picking it up.
