Check the GPU and motherboard are OK by plugging an external monitor into the VGA socket and then booting. If the external screen is OK, replace the LCD screen.

Other than taking the television to a repair shop not much can be done. I recommend a new television. Excellent brands are Sony, and Samsung. Both brands are quality televisions. Best of all you can order them on Amazon.com for lower prices.

Some channels on my tv are dark and tinted orange, I used the menu button to display the menue and scrolled down to picture but I did not know how to select picture.


Hello
Adjust colour control to zero, and check for a pure black/white picture. Adjust contrast and brightness control to minimum and check whether the picture goes completly off or a slight picture prevails. If the picture goes out when you turn down brightness control to 1/3 position, that is about 20 points, your TVs screen voltage is very low, and it can be adjustable. If the picture does not go out and more brightness prevails, screen voltage is high. If the screen voltage is high, there will be some fine lines across the screen at about an inch apart; on the whole screen from top to bottom.
Screen voltage adjustment is critical for the clarity of the picture. If it is low, no proper colour will be dispayed. If it is high, it is harmful to both picture tube and your eyes.
Never try to adjust it without proper knowledge about it. The screen control can be located alongwith the LOT [Line Output Transformer], of your tv. There will have two adjustable controls there, one is for Focus, and the other is for Screen. Both are interactive, that is adjusting one will effect an other.

My sony wega kf-50we610 unlike every one else i have no problems with set turning on my problem is i cant watch anything do to the picture being distorted scrambled like i can see the menu options and...


It looks like the vidoe board but the fault can be also a distortion in the horizontal / vertical section. So check the PIN amp and related sections. What must be looked is of the HSTAT can be off set.
Deguass the set well to confirm if there is any possibility of a distortion of picture by a severe magnetic field.
Since there can many problems associated with a distorted picture but you can try and see these possibilites other than the Y amp processing. Hope my suggestions helps.

No picture but sound


Turn on the set and get a strong light and bring it up to the screen. Do you see a faint image on the screen? If you do, then your backlight has failed. It may be one of the many lamps, or the inverter circuit or the power supply for the lamps.

The colored lines usually indicate a broken screen from an impact...unlikely unless someone hit the screen just before the picture went out.

Do not have copy of owners manuals and user guides


Problem is likely with a setting at the picture source. Make sure you only have enabled the setting your TV is capable of (480i, 480p, 1080i, etc)

Tape stuck in VCR


could be that you're looking at a blown cartridge for that vcr tape. You may need to cut the tape, to extract that from the unit.

The play head would usually retract when the cartridge is removed, BUT could be compromised by some tape getting into the play head mechanism, and jamming.

be particularly careful with anything pointy or sharp, as the tape head does NOT like those objects near the read surface.
