I think there's something wrong with the TV...


I noticed that (i think for the 1st time) my Toshiba 34HFX83 is starting to have a red (and some green hint I think) hint when my TV displays a blank white picture. You won't notice those hints at glance, but you can easily see it when you focus on it (especially when I pause at a blank white picture when watching DVD.) That kind of turns me off when I watch TV alone at night with no lights



I wish I can post a picture of that scenario with my camera but it's a bit too distorted. I get like black bars when I view the digicamera on my PC.


I've heard of "color push" on some CRT HDTVs like Sony CRTs, and I think I'm having this problem. Can "color push" be totally eliminated once The TV is professionally calibrated?




(Hello btw, this is my 1st post
)

Here's my settings btw...

this has been my picture setting since 2004.


Picture:


Mode - Movie

Contrast - 55/100

Brightness - 55/100

Color - 50/100

Tint - 0 (neutral)

Sharpness - 50/100


Flesh Tone - OFF

DNR - OFF

SVM - OFF

Color Temperature - Warm

Display Format - 1080i


oh btw, does Best Buy calibrators (still) know how to properly calibrate my ancient Hi def CRTs such as my toshiba? I seem to get an impression that Best Buy calibrators can only work with the latest LCDs and Plasmas HDTVs.

Setting color temperature to Warm can cause a perceivable red tint to some people. Try setting it to Normal.
