    I have a red cloud that takes up most of the screen (center screen and extends outward) a covers almost 2/3 of the screen. I have replaced the bulb as one technician suggested.

You can try complaining to Hitachi, but they won't admit to a problem. A new light engine is necessary as this is what they describe as "a technical issue" with this type of TV.
It will cost upwards of $600.00. Good luck, the more complaints they get, the better. I would never recommend a Hitachi to a friend (or enemy) after the treatment I recieved from the customer service reps.

The picture of my Funai 28D-3728 TV is a bit over colored in red. The color balance is correct (I mean no specific zones of screen where this effect is realized (e.g in the corners or in the center)) but...


This is not user adjustable.
The problem is in the R G B circuit. Thr Red gun circuit is totally on!
If this is transistor driven circuit replace the transistor. The component
mostly mounted on the small PCB on the picture tube neck.

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!

I cant get the color right. its to red??? any help? i did notice with the back cover off, there are 6 adjustment screws


yes! those are the screen and focus adjustments. 3 for screen, 3 for focus. try this. go in menu....turn down color, brightness, contrast all they way down. you should then have no picture, but in your case a little red. then go to back of tv and turn those 3 screen adjustments all the way down. slowly turn the screens back up until you get barely a picture. because remember, your brightness and contrast is all the way down. the picture should be dim but seeable and with red, green, blue adjustments, make it a black and white picture. when balanced..... turn up color , brightness, contrast in menu. enjoy!

Color adjust


Greetings!

Adjusting the picture tubes is a scary proposition, but since you have already done it...
The easiest way to balance the gray scale is to turn the color all the way down on the set. The next part is easier with two people if the screen controls are on the back of the set. This is the part you saw that has six small knobs on it. There are control for the focus of the red, gree and blue and for the screen level of the red, green and blue. You will want to adjust the screen controls in an effort to get the picture black and white (this is why you turn the color down), hence the term "gray scale". Just make slight adjustments, take your and be patient. It will take some time, but you will get your picture balanced back out in time.

Hope this helps!

Aadjusting screen colors


They should be adjusted to set voltages. however it is best to shut the color level to the lowest setting then try t balance the screens to achieve the best black and white picture. then turn up your color level. Your brightness level should also be set to 50 % then when you adjust for the best B&W picture. You will have better color and brightness when you reset your color and brightness levels. Hope this helps.

White Balance


What is White Balance? The human eye captures white as white, red as red and blue as blue, regardless of whether you are outside under the sun or inside under incandescent lighting. Although this is something that we take for granted, the human eye actually adapts to correct the changes in color under different light sources. In reality, when light sources vary, colors caught as the reflection of those light sources also vary. For instance, films for cameras that use film are designed to capture the most appropriate coloring outside under the sun. Thus when you take pictures under incandescent or fluorescent lighting without using a flash, the colors in the resulting picture may seem strange. Digital camera and digital camcorders are equipped with a handy feature called "White Balance" that corrects the changes in color under different light sources, just like the human eye. One of the white balance settings, "Auto White Balance" (AWB) automatically adjusts to correct the changes in color under different light sources. White Balance and Coloring The White Balance feature on Canon digital cameras and camcorders is set to "Auto White Balance" at the time of purchase. If you prefer different coloring, if you want to adjust the coloring more in detail, or if you want to change the coloring on purpose, we recommend that you change the white balance setting.
