Re: COLOR &CONTRAST NOT GOOD
Good Day, LEE-M;
Try this :
White raster with no signal, washed out looking video with signal. Access the service menu, "menu 0357" use the audio button to select "video chroma" adjustments, use the video button to select item "40 - AGIW", use the adjust button to change the setting to 0, then press the enter button to store the change. Good Luck, big IRISH.

Temperature is a common
reason why many Rear-projection TVs do not perform well when they get to hot.
You may start to see your TV shutting down automatically when it overheats.
Here are a couple of things you can do to prevent overheating. First make
certain any TV ventilation ports are free and clear of debris and dust. Second
make sure the TV has enough room for airflow. Third, the temperature in
the room should be around 72 degrees. Due to the high degree of heat generated
by a rear-projection TVs, it is not advisable to watch TV on a hot days when
you don't run the air condition. This could cause damage to your TV.
Improperly configuring TV setting can cause
problems. Verify the TV settings are set correctly. First, brightness and
contrast should not be set to high or to low because this can cause poor
picture images. Second, adjust the color on the TV when the picture displays
colors poorly. Third, if you are having sound issues then check to make sure
the volume is not muted or turn down all the way.
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.
I am suggesting you to hit the menu button on the tv itself or on the remote... then the following will appear:
picture sound set up
when you see that please hit the picture then you will read the AV mode please hit that by hitting the arrow next or up and down volume button so that you can pick what mode do you want also you can change/adjust the bright, contrast,sharp,color, tint...
I solved the problem by connecting a VCR to the TV and surfed the tv channels with the vcr remote, some how the new video input cables and the vcr solved this problem for me. I just set the tv on Video Input 1 and use the VCR. It wasn't as hard as I thought the problem was, just poor signal.
If this is a rear projection you may need to clean the lenses and mirror and try adjusting the contrast. If it is a direct view your picture tube maybe going soft (bad). If it's a Phillips/ Magnavox change CRT coolant.
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.
It sounds like you may need to re-adjust your G-2 controls, located at front, remove front panels. Look for small block with screen /focus controls on item, first turn color down, reset brightness, contrast controls. Adjust until lines are at min. and picture is a good black and white (grays). Good Luck, big IRISH.
Yes,try cleaning your mirror inside of tv they do get real dirty, also clean dirt off of tube lenses there are 3 of them red,green,blue. these are your picture tubes. Thank You for using FixYa and Have a nice Day.
