follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
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.
