Hi,

Initially, have you tried a full hard reset? If not, pls unplug from the mains. Most current devices would reset and revert back to factory default settings (assuming no internal hardware fault) when unplugged for a considerable period of time (fa couple of hours at least or preferably overnight).

Alternately, pls check if you have "Zoom" enabled.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

The picture settings may have been set very low. You can reset to the factory default settings using the steps below. You may also try selecting different inputs to see if the brightness is the same on all of them.

1. From the Picture Settings menu, use the
Arrow buttons to highlight 'More' , then press OK.

2 . Use the Arrow buttons on the remote to highlight 'Reset Picture Mode', then press OK. The TV displays, "Are you sure
you want to RESET Picture Settings to the factory defaults?"

3 . Highlight Yes and press OK.

4 .Press the EXIT button on the remote.

Only the red light comes on


Whats up Wade?

This is DVD MIKE with Perfectimagess.Try this first .Unplug the TV for a while and press the On/Off button which is supposed to perform a "reset".After that, plug the TV back in. It should come on and the Timer light off. The picture and colors might be distorted, but pressing the Perfect Focus button on the remote control resolves this right away.

The problems is a black picture or the TV won't turn on. The Timer light stays lit even though no Timer has ever been set. The colors converge and the picture is pinched. I don't think all of the expensive repairs are necessary, My TV did go out after a week of non-use while out of town (I was out of town, not the TV). I don't know. I'll post more if I learn more. I hope this helps Wade,

Vacuum the dust off of the circuit boards and inside the cavity. TAKE CLOSE UP PICTURES OF THE CONNECTORS BEFORE DISCONNECTING FROM THE CIRCUIT BOARDS. (IF YOU HAVE TO.) TAKE OUT CIRCUIT BOARD MOUNTING SCREWS. AND REMOVE THE BOARDS.

VACUUM THE DUST. LOOK- SMELL AND CLEAN THE GROUNDS, AND CAREFULLY CLEAN THE BOARDS. ASSEMBLE. DOUBLE CHECK CONNECTIONS WITH PHOTOS,
AND PLUG IN, TURN ON AND HOPEFULLY ITS ALL GOOD.

WADE WORK WITH ONE HAND AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE SON!!

TV screen shows 'SKYWORTH' when turned on. Activated this by mistake and can not get back to previous mode. This caused channel reception to be bad and all channels are either not showing well or showing...


HI I have the same problem There are things you can do... For the tuning problem I suspect changing the "RF AGC" will fix that. You need to go into service mode. Turn off TV then hold Vol + and - on front panel and turn on. The TV will come up with extra service menu. Just keep pushing menu till you see "RF AGC" and dont change any values untill you write down what they are or take photo etc. Then just change the "RF AGC" value and see how you go with the tuning. ALL THE BUTTONS ABOVE ARE ON FRONT OF TV. NOT ON REMOTE....Hope this helps....
