If the pic seems dull and the colors are all washed out as well as the tint not being able to be ciorrected to correct tones. Its almost always caused by the CRT coolant needing replacement. You can get the phillips CRT coolant kit from www.tvrepairworld.com the kit contains the coolant for all three CRT's and the CD with instructions.

The color on my tv is turning green. It's not totally green but it's becoming green. No matter how I adjust the colors it remains the same with too much green. You can't see the true colors...


It is very common for the color of the lamp to change as it nears the end of it's life. Depending on the bulb itself you may see yellow, green, or blue shifts (I have even seen red/orange). This is due to the diminishing output of the bulb and while you can make some adjustment you will eventually hit the point of failure. The bulb could in fact last several more weeks or even months depending on your use and environment. It is probably a good time to start searching for a replacement now so you can replace it as soon as it dies or just replace it now if the color is too bad to be worthwhile.

I have a sony kdf-46e2000, there is a pinkish stripe on the top and bottom of the screen, what is causing that?


Looks to me as an serious (but not uncommon) PSP board problem with Sony plasmas. Contact a Sony service center.

What problems have people had with quality control on these displays? Are they covered under warranty?
  1. Certain displays emitted an extremely loud buzz. This was covered by warranty repair.
  2. Certain displays had a problem with the Y/C delay on their S-video input. This was also correctable.
  3. One person reported red vertical lines on his display. Was this covered by warranty? Was it an input problem or a pixel problem?
  4. Afew bad pixels here and there are not covered under warranty. Largeclusters are generally covered. It's up to Sonys discretion. On the plus side, however, bad pixels are becoming increasingly rare. Mostpeople are reporting no bad pixels at all!
CALIBRATINGWhat needs to be calibrated on a plasma?
You needto calibrate most of the same things that need to be calibrated onother displays. About the only things that don't need to be done areconvergence and geometry. You can usually tinker with picture size andposition, but there's no need to deal with keystone or pincushionadjustments, etc.What is white level? What is black level? How are they adjusted?
Theadjustment for white level is usually labeled "Picture" (as onPanasonics) or "Contrast". "Brightness", on the other hand, refers tothe black level. Yes, this is apallingly counter intuitive. This FAQuses the terms "white level" and "black level", since they betterdescribe what you're actually adjusting, and they're the terms used byAvia and Video Essentials.
How do I adjust hue and saturation?
In another mysterious choice of terms, hue is controlled by the "Tint" setting,and saturation is controlled by the "Color" setting. This FAQ uses theterms "hue" and "saturation", since they're the terms used by Avia andVideo Essentials.
How do I set the white level on a plasma?
Youset the white level by adjusting the "Picture" setting. You will needto use a different test pattern than you would for a CRT. For both plasma displays and LCD displays, you should use the 10 IRE grayscalestep pattern. There are two criteria you want to match on your plasma.
First,you need to make sure the white level is low enough that your displayisn't thresholding (or clamping) bright levels. You should set thewhite level low enough that you can see each of the 10 IRE stepsdistinctly. The Sony seem not to exhibit clamping (in my limitedexperience), even at factory defaults, so this criterion may not beterribly useful.
Second, for the health of your display (e.g.to avoid burn-in), you should turn down the white level. Just becauseyour display can display blindingly bright pictures doesn't mean that it should. Plasma displays should be set between 21 fl and 25 fl light output; the Sony comeout of the factory at about 30 fl. On one ISF-calibrated Sony, 23fl was roughly equivalent to a Picture setting of -20 (in the usermenu, not the service menu). To set this precisely you'll need to bringin a calibration specialist, but you can do a lot of good by justdialing down the white level a lot. After seeing the display at 30 fl,23 fl will see very dim. But after a while, you'll find that 23 fl isplenty bright.
How do I set the black level on a plasma?
Youset the black level by adjusting the "Brightness" setting. You can usethe same test pattern you would use for any other display.
How do I calibrate grayscale (calibrate the color temperature)?
Unfortunately,this is one you can't do yourself. You need special equipment tomeasure the color. In fact, most ISF technicians lack the equipmentspecific to plasma calibration (a $15K gadget known as aspectroradiometer). But even the standard color measurement equipment(which calibrationists do have) will do a great job.
Thatsaid, one person who had his Sony display calibrated by an ISF specialist said that the Cinema / Warm setting was reasonably close to6500K out of the box. Using that setting is probably the best you'll doon your own.
If you're really determined to screw up yourdisplay, the RGB drive and cutoff settings in the service menu are used to adjust the color temperature.
How do I adjust the color decoder?
There are several issues here. Generally speaking, the Panasonic decoder seems topush blue a bit. The R-Y Axis Angle and B-Y Axis Gain in the servicemenu are used to correct this behavior.
There used to be aproblem on some Panasonics with the Y/C delay on the S-video input. Seethe Quality Control section for more information.
How do I adjust the gamma?
On the industrial model, there is a set of Advanced picture settings. Go to the Picture menu, turn Advanced on, and then hit the down-arrow. In the subsequentmenu you can adjust quite a few parameters, including select from a fewgamma settings.
This advanced menu appears to be missing from the consumer model.
How do I calibrate my consumer model given these missing menus?
Thereis apparently a way to activate these menus. Perhaps you can find acalibrationist or Panasonic technician would can turn them on longenough to do the calibration.
What's the overall calibration procedure?
In general, the order Avia sets out is the correct one. A more complete list is:
  1. White level (picture)
  2. Black level (brightness)
  3. Repeat (1) and (2) until you have a good balance.
  4. Grayscale (requires special hardware and mucking about in the service menu)
  5. Sharpness
  6. Hue and Saturation (tint and color)
  7. Color decoder (requires use of the service menu)
  8. Repeat (6) and (7) for red and green until you have a good balance.
SERVICE MENUHow do I access the service menu?
In a word, don't. See the service menu warningabove. If you're bound and determined to make use of the service menu,buy the service manual. It contains more than enough information foryou to ruin your display and/or kill yourself.

Bad contrast with scanner


Last things first: NO USER SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE.

That's the way HP does things. There are no rheostats or pots to adjust. It's all done electronically now, with chips and things.

You never said how it does with color or greyscale photos or drawings.

As for the RGB=(64,64,64), that's about right for the scan picture settings and the mixed (text and graphics) setting, and is particularly true for color picture settings. Have you tried using the setting for drawings (or line art), specifically greyscale drawings? Usually the greyscale lineart or drawing setting will render black text. You might also try scanning with the settings set for Text. If the greyscale drawing settings or greyscale text settings do not produce black text, try reinstalling your software and drivers.

If the contrast stays the same for all settings after reinstalling the software and drivers, and if it doesn't scan color and greyscale pictures correctly, then it sounds like your scanner is going bad.

As for the scans you've already done, you can darken the text by taking it into a photo editor, such as Paint Shop Pro or Photo Shop, and adjust the contrast and brightness to get the effect you desire.

I don't think Sony makes a Wega Plasma. Sony did make a plasma about 7 years ago but it wasn't Wega. Are you sure it's not Grand Wega SXRD or Lcd type

Brightness and color


It really depends on what YOUR eyes are pleased with - if 50 looks good to you, that's where it should be. It seems like you might be afraid of messing up something - don't worry, you can't hurt the TV by adjusting the customer controls :-) You might try a little experimenting - kicking them up to 75 might give you a brighter and more pleasing picture. I've been a TV technician for years, and I generally like the brightness and contrast up almost to the maximum (I like a bright picture as opposed to a "warm" one), with the color and hue adjusted for an accurate reproduction of facial tones. But the bottom line is what YOU want - feel free to experiment, you can't hurt anything as long as you don't start taking out screws :-)

Having problem with getting the color and contrast right?


Good Day;
Turn your color down all the way, do you get a good Black and White picture with good black, white and grays? If not your picture tube may be going bad. It can be adjusted sometimes to get a 'better' picture.
If picture is a good B&W; adjust britness level: 50% > contast: > 90/95 % >color: 50%.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

Colors are distorted, brightness excessive


You may have a bad Fly Back transformer. The focus and screen(brightness) controls are located on this transformer. Some of the new RCA's have had problems with this transformer. If the screen control opens up the picture may either go dark or light which would cause your problem. Also a bad Picture tube could cause this. It shouldn't since the tv is not very old though. I've seen a few new ones go bad. Stargazer

Picture


Its a slight possibility that a 2.00 Part called a capacitor could be bad on the screen drive voltage source. But most likly it sounds like the Picture tubes are comming to the end of there life expectancy. If the crts are weak there is a crt rejuvinator that could possibly clean the grids off each color gun. But this is a crap shoot, as sometimes it destroys the tubes. These type of repairs are not for the handi-man or a consumer to do. There are no real user replaceable parts inside so unless your able to solder and know the HI Voltage saftey issues, you should call a pro to assist you in this repair. Good Luck
