    Too Much Red in Picture. 51F59 HDTV



1 Answer


I had the same problem, where the red CRT was shorted out. It kept on getting redder and redder until on day I turned in on and it was all red. CRT's can be pricey so it would be best to call a repair tech to diagnose the problem. Most will do in home service so you probably won't have to cart the tv somewhere. Once I replaced mine it's worked great ever since.

Red screen

Your red tube is going bad or the CRT board is cracked. Either way your TV is done. You cannot get replacement parts anymore.

The screen turns red then the tv turns off

An issue dealing with the red picture tube but usually a simple adjustment of the screen control inside the set will correct this problem.

Have 57 " Toshiba projection TV there is way too much red in picture

TV has 3 CRTs, red, blue, green. Its possible that you have a bad blue or green crt. If that were the case the red would be prevalent and the pic would be reddish. The tv has a picture "level" adjustment that if done correctly could get it looking correct. Its probably best to have a tech. do it since you can make it worse if you do not know what you are doing, also there are high voltages present. Good luck

Good day!!!!
That problem is usually cause of faulty capacitors on the power supply board...
If the capacitors is faulty your TV turn on after a lot of attempt until the TV is totally turn on...
In that case you need to replace the bad capacitors on the power supply..
How can you find where is the faulty capacitors? The bad capacitors is usually leak/bulged on top in that case you easily find it through visual check...

Xbox 360

If you are getting nothing when you try to turn it on, no lights or anything...then check your power converter to see if it is supplying proper voltage. This can easily be done with a multimeter.

If the power converter is ok, I would call xbox and see about getting warranty work done.

If you are getting red lights where it shows what controllers are hooked up (they are green when working correctly), then you will most likely need warranty work.

If you xbox turns on but you are getting no picture to your tv, I would check it on a different TV to see if possibly the input ports on TV are fried.

Also check to make sure that all connections like power cord, RCA cables are hooked up correctly and firmly in their socket.

Hope this helps.

My xbox 360 turns on, has sound but does not display a picture and it is on the correct channel.

Good, you check all the video out / in and tv setting is right .
The problem is, under the G.P.U. there's a hot spot , and it just so happens
to be adjacent to the video buffer out connection , which has broken free from the main board.
No red lights , everything sounds good but no picture . solution X clamp mode ,done right of course.
will reestablish the video and prevent additional erreor . if you have any questions fell free to email me

D80 Nikon - dark in viewfinder

What you see through the viewfinder is not exactly what you get in your picture. It is possible that your settings are just off in the camera. To make sure that this is the problem, set your settings to Auto and try again.

The red light before the picture is taken is a setting you can turn on to indicate that you have focused correctly. You can turn this off in the menu if this bothers you.

Lastly, I do not think your camera is broken. You just need to read your manual to make sure your settings are correct when you take a picture. Hope this helps.

Turn on pic turns red with thin bright red horizontal lines

Sorry to say, but that's usually the sign of a bad picture tube. One of the elements inside the tube shorts and you see the picture you describe, and the set shuts down due to high voltages getting to places it shouldn't. There's no solution except picture tube replacement, and that is uneconomical. You're better off replacing the TV when the tube goes bad.

Dark picture

use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.
