"off" meaning back to factory defaults - or off meaning blue is green?

Using the Color, Contrast, and Sharpness settings have no effect on the picture?

    Off meaning not right. Right now it's more on the blue side but things that should be red r like blue grey. I just can't figure out the right combo.

    Unplugging, and re-plugging after 20 minutes should reset all the settings back to default.



    Most LCD TVs require a burn-in period then re-callibration.



    Getting a true color representation requires a callibration DVD.



    I recommend THIS ONE.



    See this thread also that explains the callibration process.



    Thanks!!

Our samsung HCl4715W tv is all connected right but our picture is scrambled where you see double exposure and the color is off. Can not find our manual. any suggestions?


The problem of your tv is the convergence. Projection tv set has a 3 colors red,blue and green this 3 colors must be properly lined up to look the video normal. When this 3 colors is not properly aligned the video will produce a double image of color or like a 3d or wavy. In order to fix this problem you should adjust it in the menu program of your tv you should move any of the colors to up or down, left or right if you cannot align the 3 colors the problem is the convergence ic it must be replace. To locate the convergence ic you should remove the back cover of your tv but be sure to unplug your tv, you will see this ic attached in a large aluminum plate it has a marking of stk--- and followed by a numbers. or you could contact a service technician do do it for you and save you from stress. Good day and best regards.

What are the best color settings for a toshiba 40rv52u


saultoman,
First set your picture setting back to their defaults. Now adjust each setting up and down all the way to learn what they do.

Then try the following:
1) Leave your back light at 50%.
2) Adjust the brightness until blacks look jet black them back some.
3) Set the sharpness up until it looks like too much then back a bit; you can never have too much.
4) Add only a little color as most people like a little more color than what the TV is set to show.
5) Now adjust the contrast up until it no longer looks as if your are watching TV with sunglasses on; don't be afraid to go to 100%.
6) Now work the back light only a a small amount.

It can take some people a few days to tweak the settings. Remember to right down each setting on there value for future reference after getting the picture to what you like.

Color has strong green tint - can't adjust with set-up program


One color plug in the back was unplugged - Since the TV had not moved we didn't think to look for that. The cable bundle must have been bumped causing the problem - I feel a bit silly that I hadn't looked for that. Thanks for your follow-up.

I had the exact same problem. Thought it was the tv, but it was the cable between my cable box and the tv. Try unplugging the cords and plugging them back in, color was restored.

Good Day,

Try resetting the TV by unplugging from wall outlet for 3 to5 minutes then plug back in. If no fixya take front grill off and panel and adjust the screen controls, turn color off adjust for Black & White Picture. Good Luck, big IRISH.

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!!)

Colors on tv


Can you tell me if you have s[eaers on or near the TV? If so It may be possible that the TV is being affected by the speakers being too close if that is the case. If so then to move them of or away and to turn the TV off for 30 min should solve it. Hope this helps.

Cannot Control Picture Settings?


First thing I would do is unplug the set for about 20 seconds then if you still had the problem, have it fixed by an authorized repair shop for that brand as it should still be in warranty.
