Check first if you try to change source this would go away like switching to playing DVD or playstation perhaps and by using other connections like RCA cable. The connections or external devices could be the source of the problem.
If it is still the same then it is an issue on the board. If soft tapping on the board with a non metal object would resolve the problem then some parts are loose or there is a break in the board. Otherwise it may have been a bad capacitor or a bad chip. Physical evidence of a bad capacitor is signs of swelling, leaks or even burning. Capacitors are cylindrical with two prongs soldered to the board. It is commonly black in color but may appear in all sorts of color.
The problem is at the color oscillation or chroma section of the board. If no bad capacitors are found fixing this would require special tools and would require advance skills.

    Hello --- Check whether colour control is set to low. Reset the picture control to factory defaults. Retune the TV, with external antenna, and see whether there is colour or not. Ok

    Hello
    You have its original remote control with you I thinks. If so; press auto picture button on it.
    Press repeatedly to choose from 5 different factory
    predefined picture settings. Choose from
    Personal (how you set the Picture Menu
    Adjustment controls), Movies (for movies),
    Sports (for any sporting event), Weak Signal
    (used when the signal being received is not
    great), or Multimedia (for video games).

HOW TO SET BRIGHTNESS OF THE SCREEN?


Hi,

Dear User...

You can adjust the brightness and contrast of your monitor to improve the readability of text and to make digital pictures appear more like they'll look when printed.

To improve the results when adjusting the brightness and contrast settings for your display, use Display Color Calibration. (Display Color Calibration helps you adjust these color settings and others.) For more information about calibrating your display color in Windows, see Calibrate your display.

The way you adjust brightness and contrast varies and depends on your specific display.

Brightness and contrast buttons on the front of the monitor. Some monitors have brightness and contrast controls on the front and use the standard symbols shown in the following image.


On-screen menu. You can change the brightness and contrast settings for some displays by using an on-screen menu, and then setting the brightness and contrast in the resulting menu. Many times, you can view the on-screen menu by pressing a button-possibly labeled Menu-on the front of the monitor.



Thanks....

How can take black and white photo with sony cybershot DSC-W180?


Press the MENU button to display the menu screen. Use the arrows to select "Color Mode" and choose "B&W." Confirm by pressing the center of the multiselector. Press MENU to exit the menu screen.

In general you're better off shooting in color and converting to black&white on the computer. You get much better control over contrast, brightness, and other factors. You can try different conversions and see what works best for that particular picture. And you still have the original in color, just in case you decide it actually works better that way.

I have a sony kdf-46e2000, there is a pinkish stripe on the top and bottom of the screen, what is causing that?


Looks to me as an serious (but not uncommon) PSP board problem with Sony plasmas. Contact a Sony service center.

What problems have people had with quality control on these displays? Are they covered under warranty?
  1. Certain displays emitted an extremely loud buzz. This was covered by warranty repair.
  2. Certain displays had a problem with the Y/C delay on their S-video input. This was also correctable.
  3. One person reported red vertical lines on his display. Was this covered by warranty? Was it an input problem or a pixel problem?
  4. Afew bad pixels here and there are not covered under warranty. Largeclusters are generally covered. It's up to Sonys discretion. On the plus side, however, bad pixels are becoming increasingly rare. Mostpeople are reporting no bad pixels at all!
CALIBRATINGWhat needs to be calibrated on a plasma?
You needto calibrate most of the same things that need to be calibrated onother displays. About the only things that don't need to be done areconvergence and geometry. You can usually tinker with picture size andposition, but there's no need to deal with keystone or pincushionadjustments, etc.What is white level? What is black level? How are they adjusted?
Theadjustment for white level is usually labeled "Picture" (as onPanasonics) or "Contrast". "Brightness", on the other hand, refers tothe black level. Yes, this is apallingly counter intuitive. This FAQuses the terms "white level" and "black level", since they betterdescribe what you're actually adjusting, and they're the terms used byAvia and Video Essentials.
How do I adjust hue and saturation?
In another mysterious choice of terms, hue is controlled by the "Tint" setting,and saturation is controlled by the "Color" setting. This FAQ uses theterms "hue" and "saturation", since they're the terms used by Avia andVideo Essentials.
How do I set the white level on a plasma?
Youset the white level by adjusting the "Picture" setting. You will needto use a different test pattern than you would for a CRT. For both plasma displays and LCD displays, you should use the 10 IRE grayscalestep pattern. There are two criteria you want to match on your plasma.
First,you need to make sure the white level is low enough that your displayisn't thresholding (or clamping) bright levels. You should set thewhite level low enough that you can see each of the 10 IRE stepsdistinctly. The Sony seem not to exhibit clamping (in my limitedexperience), even at factory defaults, so this criterion may not beterribly useful.
Second, for the health of your display (e.g.to avoid burn-in), you should turn down the white level. Just becauseyour display can display blindingly bright pictures doesn't mean that it should. Plasma displays should be set between 21 fl and 25 fl light output; the Sony comeout of the factory at about 30 fl. On one ISF-calibrated Sony, 23fl was roughly equivalent to a Picture setting of -20 (in the usermenu, not the service menu). To set this precisely you'll need to bringin a calibration specialist, but you can do a lot of good by justdialing down the white level a lot. After seeing the display at 30 fl,23 fl will see very dim. But after a while, you'll find that 23 fl isplenty bright.
How do I set the black level on a plasma?
Youset the black level by adjusting the "Brightness" setting. You can usethe same test pattern you would use for any other display.
How do I calibrate grayscale (calibrate the color temperature)?
Unfortunately,this is one you can't do yourself. You need special equipment tomeasure the color. In fact, most ISF technicians lack the equipmentspecific to plasma calibration (a $15K gadget known as aspectroradiometer). But even the standard color measurement equipment(which calibrationists do have) will do a great job.
Thatsaid, one person who had his Sony display calibrated by an ISF specialist said that the Cinema / Warm setting was reasonably close to6500K out of the box. Using that setting is probably the best you'll doon your own.
If you're really determined to screw up yourdisplay, the RGB drive and cutoff settings in the service menu are used to adjust the color temperature.
How do I adjust the color decoder?
There are several issues here. Generally speaking, the Panasonic decoder seems topush blue a bit. The R-Y Axis Angle and B-Y Axis Gain in the servicemenu are used to correct this behavior.
There used to be aproblem on some Panasonics with the Y/C delay on the S-video input. Seethe Quality Control section for more information.
How do I adjust the gamma?
On the industrial model, there is a set of Advanced picture settings. Go to the Picture menu, turn Advanced on, and then hit the down-arrow. In the subsequentmenu you can adjust quite a few parameters, including select from a fewgamma settings.
This advanced menu appears to be missing from the consumer model.
How do I calibrate my consumer model given these missing menus?
Thereis apparently a way to activate these menus. Perhaps you can find acalibrationist or Panasonic technician would can turn them on longenough to do the calibration.
What's the overall calibration procedure?
In general, the order Avia sets out is the correct one. A more complete list is:
  1. White level (picture)
  2. Black level (brightness)
  3. Repeat (1) and (2) until you have a good balance.
  4. Grayscale (requires special hardware and mucking about in the service menu)
  5. Sharpness
  6. Hue and Saturation (tint and color)
  7. Color decoder (requires use of the service menu)
  8. Repeat (6) and (7) for red and green until you have a good balance.
SERVICE MENUHow do I access the service menu?
In a word, don't. See the service menu warningabove. If you're bound and determined to make use of the service menu,buy the service manual. It contains more than enough information foryou to ruin your display and/or kill yourself.

Why are my pictures jagged when I view them on my computer?


Your monitor may not be optimized for viewing images. For the best on-screen viewing, set your monitor display as follows: For computers running the Windows operating system: Select Start > Settings > Control Panel > Display. In the Display Properties window, select the Settings tab. From the Color Quality drop-down menu, select the highest setting your monitor will allow (usually 24 or 32 bit). Drag the Screen area slider to either 800 by 600 or 1024 by 768. Click Apply, and then OK. For computers running the Macintosh operating system: Access the Monitor Control Panel. Set the color to Millions of Colors.
