Picture has red tint


I would unplug it from the wall for a while and see if that will help reset it. Also make sure there are no magnetic devices near the screen because this will change the screen color as well. Mine will mess up every once in a while so I just unplug it while I am off running errands, plug it back up when I come home and it seems to reset itself. Good luck

It seems like the white balance on my TV is wrong - colors are a sort of not realistic and even when I turn the color off there;s still some red/purple colors on the picture. I tried to adjust picture,...


Hello mvadima11,
Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!
To answer your question: The white balance isn't the issue on this set, in my opinion.I would be more inclined to believe that someone had placed a speaker or large magnet too close to your television.If you have speakers right next to the set, move them away. If someone set a magnet on the set sometime recently, you will have to rebalance the tube.
To try rebalance of the tube, find the largest magnet you can find. Then starting from the outside edge of the tube, go in clock-wise circles, slowly, all the way to the center of the television. Once you have arched the center, pull slowly, straight out. Now turn your color back up to normal. This should fix your issue.
Have a great day!

I just need to adjust the resolution on this TV. NO ONE at RCA could seem to help me. Thank you.


hi,
did u mean to adjust the picture setting then go for the following
1 press menu on the remote
2. using down arrow select picture quality and press ok. available options in picture quality and its use is listed below. you can use it according to your preference.

Basic Picture Control- Displays the five slider controls for adjusting

the way the picture looks.

Contrast Adjusts the difference between the light and dark areas

of the picture.

Color Adjusts- the richness of the color

Tint Adjusts the balance between the red and green levels

Black Level Adjusts the brightness of the picture

.

Sharpness Adjusts the crispness of edges in the picture.


When exiting this menu, the Save Personal Picture Preset choice list will

appear. You can choose either Yes or No. If you save the settings as a

Personal Picture Preset, the TV will store the settings so you can reselect

them easily if someone changes the settings.

Picture Presets Displays- a choice list that lets you select one of three

preset picture settings: Bright Lighting, Normal Lighting, Soft Lighting

or Personal Picture Preset. Choose the setting that is best for your

viewing environment.

Auto Color Displays- a choice list that lets you turn on the feature that

automatically corrects the color of the picture. (This is especially useful

for tracking realistic flesh tone colors as you switch from channel to

channel.) Choose On or Off, depending on your preference.

Color Warmth Displays- a choice list that lets you set one of three

automatic color adjustments: Cool for a more blue palette of picture

colors; Normal; and Warm for a more red palette of picture colors. The

warm setting corresponds to the National Television Standards

Committee (NTSC) standard of 6500?K.

Video Noise Reduction Displays- a choice list that lets you turn on the

feature that automatically reduces noise from the picture. Audiovariable

Brightness and color


It really depends on what YOUR eyes are pleased with - if 50 looks good to you, that's where it should be. It seems like you might be afraid of messing up something - don't worry, you can't hurt the TV by adjusting the customer controls :-) You might try a little experimenting - kicking them up to 75 might give you a brighter and more pleasing picture. I've been a TV technician for years, and I generally like the brightness and contrast up almost to the maximum (I like a bright picture as opposed to a "warm" one), with the color and hue adjusted for an accurate reproduction of facial tones. But the bottom line is what YOU want - feel free to experiment, you can't hurt anything as long as you don't start taking out screws :-)

The Contrast and Brightness on tv appears to be dark.


If this is a CRT-based TV and it's been played most of the time, you may have a bad picture tube, especially if strong red colors bleed to the right. CRT's dim with use, unlike LCD or plasma. But it could also be trouble in the video circuits - none of this falls into the DIY category, unfortunately. High voltage involved, unless you're comfortable around it and want to try turning up the screen controls inside the TV. If you do, let me know - but "no response at all" from the external adjustments points to a more serious problem.

Lower the contrast first.

If colors not in balance, reduce saturation until "normal" to your eye with whichever color (or color pair) out of balance.

Color setting


MOST likely, use remote [maybe set] for <menu[setup]> <video>. This is normally where <brightness><contrast><color> and so forth live.

Chuck the TV - probably It depends on the repair facilities available where you live. In big urban areas the cost of staffing a repair shop is such it can cost nearly as much per hour just to look at an item is it does to buy the next one-plus you get all the latest features.
