The color is all washed out and appears the brightness is turned all the way up. I tried changing cables and it doesn't matter whether it is on TV, DVD, or any other mode. How do I get the picture back?

Re: Picture appears to be going out
Make sure the brightness is set at about 45% of it's max setting and the contrast or picture control is set at about 90% or almost all the way up.
The rest of the picture settings should be:
Color about 45%
Tint should be at 50%
Sharpness should also be about 50%.
These settings are my default settings when I am a customers home. The set should look good at this point.
If not then the main PCB is suspected of being the problem.
Hope this helps.

(European TVs) • [Multi] - For TV that is compatible with both PAL and NTSC. • [NTSC] - For an NTSC-system TV. (American TVs)
[Picture Setting] Select a predefined set of picture color settings or customize the personal setting. • [Standard] - Original color setting. • [Bright] - Vibrant color setting. • [Soft] - Warm color setting. • [Personal] - Customize the color setting. Set the level of brightness, contrast, tint and color saturation, then press OK
U turn to another channel,now it look like u have a picture of a shadow behind it?Yes,than u have freeze a picture on the tv for a long,might have a tv screen burn in.Tries go into tv menu go to colors setting.Tries contrast setting all the way up to maximum.Tries colors a third of a setting.The brightness half of it setting.Should or might help to solved this problems.
yes! those are the screen and focus adjustments. 3 for screen, 3 for focus. try this. go in menu....turn down color, brightness, contrast all they way down. you should then have no picture, but in your case a little red. then go to back of tv and turn those 3 screen adjustments all the way down. slowly turn the screens back up until you get barely a picture. because remember, your brightness and contrast is all the way down. the picture should be dim but seeable and with red, green, blue adjustments, make it a black and white picture. when balanced..... turn up color , brightness, contrast in menu. enjoy!
see if there is a "default" option, if not set everything back to the middle, if the colors are still off you sure its not the convergence?
most big screens allow you to change "color temperature" it's like a default adjustment for 3 different brightness levels.... ie...COOL, WARM picture will show obvious changes in brightness
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.
does the tv use Svideo as an input from whatever device you're using on the main screen?
if so , try changing out the cable for a new one, svideo carries 2 signals, color and brightness (ie color and black signals)
if your cable is bad or broken, you may only be getting one of those signals ( the black one)
try a new cable if it's s-video.
if it's not, get back to us.
first turn your color all way off or down.try turning your contrast way down as far as it will go you should see a darker picture. now bring up the brightness to a point half way. bring the contrast up to see grays and whites and blacks...adjust brightness more if need be. now you should see a nice black and white picture. no bring your color up last ...not saturate but to your liking. if you stilll got problems i bet your video out transistor is shorted....meaning shop work.
