Check all the pins at both ends of the video cable, also try it with another PC to make sure it is not video card problem.

    Since we have eliminate the external sources for sure as the cause of the problem, then the only thing left will be the video processor board inside the monitor itself, It is full of surface mounted components whick will require to track down the problem down to component level. Or you can try to locate the new board on EBAY.

Have red tint in picture


It sounds like the color settings are out of whack, try going to the tv settings and reset them back to default. Then try changing the Red green blue values (RGB) in the color settings, simply lowering the red value might do the trick

Tip

What to do when you only have Green on a CRT Projection TV.


If you have a picture, but only in green on a 3 crt projection TV, I would try turning up the drive for the red and blue guns. They have probably changed over time and red and blue have lost drive and need a boost. Green makes up 70 percent of the picture compared to red and blue so the drive would not have to drop much to lose red and green but still have green. Keep in mind that this does mean that the CRTs are dying and may not have too much time left.

To turn up the drives first remove the back cover on the bottom half of the machine. Be very careful as you will have to work on this unit live. Do not touch anything other than what I tell you and keep one hand in your pocket whenever possible.

First look at the space above the main circuit board. Somewhere across the beam supporting the CRTs you will see a square box with 6 controls (shafts). You can locate the box if you follow the wires from the flyback to the box. The flyback is located on the power board and produces the high voltage. It will have 4 large red rubber wires coming out of it. Three go to the focus divider block (the box in question) then they go on to the crts (red, green, blue).

Once you locate the focus divider look at it closely. The focus controls are on top and the drives are on the bottom. They should be marked red, green and blue. You want to turn up the red and blue. Tune a picture with as much black as possible. While watching it turn up the red until you see a red tint or streak then turn down until it just disappears. Do the same with the blue. You may want to touch up the green also for good color balance.

If the set is working OK and the CRTs have enough drive left, your picture should look normal.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Contrast really dark but seems to improve after the tv has been on several hours


Hi:
You may have a problem with the inverters in the unit, they are responsible for lighting up the back panel. Check or have checked the power supply voltage to the inverters, should be around 18-24 volts DC. Also leaky capacitors on the power supply will cause this issue as well as leaky or puffy capacitors on the inverter.

Red Tint on Screen


This is normal and is a color calibration issue.

For correct color, NEVER use the "WARM" setting. Why? Too red. You cannot get REALISTIC or ACCURATE color using the "Warm" setting.

Since we are speaking of Samsung, first avoid the "Flesh Tone" adjustment. When things are set correctly there is no need for this adjustment. It is a quick fix and not for the "discerning eye".

1. First, access the "Color Temperature" menu. From here select "Cool2" or the coolest temperature setting.

Note: For Samsung use "Cool2", or if not available, "Cool1". Samsung has inadvertently increased calibration confusion by issueing TVs that have just "Cool1", and TVs that have both "Cool1" and "Cool2" :0[

For other brands, use "Cool", or "High", or "+6500k". Anything lower artificially reddens the picture and compromises detail.

2. Now return to the color settings and reduce "Color" to between 30 and 40 (on a 100 scale). The sweet spot is just near the place where the color rapidly washes out.

3. To round out the color palette, move to the "Tint" adjustment and ADD a couple (3-5) clicks to the GREEN.

Adding the touch of green is what is needed to take out the last bit of "pink" and will make all the tones and all colors display properly.

I hope this helps!

Take time to get used to the settings, you may think the screen looks dull at first. The truth is most people have way too much contrast on their TVs.
These settings will also work for Cable or Dish hookups, in which case you may change the Noise Reduction option to Medium to reduce signal noise.

Picture has a green shade


Sounds like your red picture tube is not emitting enough brightness to balance the colors. A temporary solution could be to slightly increase the screen voltage of the red CRT to give a good black and white picture when the color control is turned all the way down. If the set has not been serviced in the last 5 years or so, and you're not ready for a new HDTV set, it may be worthwhile to get a technican to look at it and clean the dust off the lenses and mirror and evaluate whether a picture tube rejuvination might work along with the gray scale tracking adjustments.
