I would recommend purchasing a calibration DVD that will walk you through the steps to alter your TV settings for a correct picture. The two most common can be found in many places like Amazon or possibly your A/V store of choice:
1) Digital Video Essentials (DVE)
2) Avia

If the picture can't be set to look right using these, then at least you will have them to calibrate your next TV that replaces it.

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

My tv turns on fine after a few min the picture go's half black,if I whack the side the picture will come back on for a while and go back to half black again, could this tv be fixed?


The set has bad solder connections, specifically in the vertical output section. When you whack the set, the connections work for a while so the full picture comes back. Then, when they open up again, you're back to black. A service technician with a soldering iron could fix this easily, and the cost would be far less than the price of a replacement.

Convergence on my panasonic pt47wx53g is out of whack. tried setting to default and tried the convergence steps in book. neither worked. red is especially bad. everything looks to have 2 heads 4 eyes...


Did you try the service menu convergence options or are you talking about the basic conergence steps in the manual?

I have had this TV for going on 9 years and would be happy to walk you through the steps.

Sony-kp51ws510 picture turns to a blue hue with flickering colors


hello there this is an easy fix unplug the tv and take the back of the set, once inside the set you will see 3 coloured bulbs and a big mirror in the back theses over time get dusty and dirty and if you smoke it can get really bad you simply just need to clean the bulbs and the mirror with computer screen wipes or some sort of window cleaner be sure not to get everything wet inside this should sort if for you nice and clear again!

Thanks For Using FixYa

The problem is probably a faulty IC (chip) or capacitor on tv main board.
Only simple things you can do at home are hard reset and whacking test.
To do hard reset leave the power cord unplugged for two hours; then power up again. This will drain power from tv and will restore all eproms inside the set to factory defaults.
to do whacking test. Just bang (not too hard) your fist on the top, back, sides, etc., to see if you can restore the picture, this can fix bad connectors etc.


If reset and the whacking doesn't help, then the problem is in some faulty or burnt component on main pcb inside tv. Often the jungle IC chip. The jungle IC handles all the video, color and control signals to the projection tubes. It is quite expensive to replace. In this case you will need a tech to test and diagnose the exact failure so that the right outboard parts are replaced at the same time.

The set should be nearly 10 years of age; so, it should have a few years of life left in it, as average life for a Toshiba is around 15 years . So, if you have to spend $300 to fix it and you get another 5 years of life or so out of it, it may be worth repairing, as the only other option is buying a new TV.

Colors


Hi,
Here is a couple of ideas, hope they help...Move any big speakers away from set, if there be any close by.
Also you will need to borrow a degaussing coil from someone, get them to explain to you and show you how to degauss a tv with the colors out of purity. Also, you may have a bad degaussing circuit in the tv...but definetly make sure no big magnetic speakers are in the same area or close to your tv. Hope this helps.
Another problem which would require someone knowledgeable of it, is a problem in the convergence circuit...depending on what brand of tv you have and how new it is...this problem causes an outline or color shadows around people and or objects.....the first problem above causes impurity or splotches of color in the video or picture.

32 inch rca color


If this is a 32 inch TV then it is a standard picture tube set. If the colors have suddenly gone out of whack, and the set has not been dropped or had any large magnets near it recently, it means that the degaussing thermistor has come loose from its legs. This is very common in the RCA regular picture tube sets. If you look in the back of the set you will see a large black coil of wire wrapped around the edges of the picture tube, with 2 white wires going down to a jack on the main PC board. Right next to that jack is the degaussing thermistor, which looks like a small silver disc, like a nickle, with 2 legs loosely soldered to its sides. One or both of those legs are probably loose, and if you are very careful you can solder those legs back onto the thermistor. If you do not have experience soldering small parts, allow a qualified tech to handle it for you.

Picture flips from color to black and white continuously


I believe your set has a loose conection that needs to be resoldered ,every time you hit it reacts and that is good,you need to use a wooden or rubber handle to tap in the main board,around the tuner and in different areas until it reacts,be attentive when it does so you can flip the board and resoldered the area that made it react,once the problem is corrected you need to resoldered any other overheated areas and there should be a few in your set,check the grounds in the tuner(where the coax goes in the inside,is a silver box),the horizontal driver transformer and output transformer.Be careful while you do this and stay away from the thick red wire going to the back of the picture tube specially when the set is on. Let Us know how it goes or if you need more information.
