My friend just got his 10HT and we were looking at it and there is a green tinit to all the black sceens. I did not have this problem with mine and do not know what specificaly needs to be done to correct for this. I followed the FAQ on the BigPicture forum on mine and am very impressed with the picture but his is very distracting with the green thing going. What needs to be done to fix this or should he try to return it for a new one.


Thanks

It is hard to say without seeing your exact issue, but I did notice a slight green cast with my 10ht. I have been able to fix this via the gain and bias by dropping the greens.


I have not done any formal studies but I have noticed that my gain and bias setting for hdtv and dvd don't always clean up the green cast out of native 480i stuff that has been upconverted to 1080i via my hd100 stb. For some reason some of this stuff still has a green cast to on the black areas. If I remember correctly I was able to correct it again by creating another set of gain and bias settings, but I did not keep those settings because I watch so little non HD or DVD material on the 10ht.


Regards,


Brian

So are both the green fog and green tint problems the same thing and if not are they both correctable?


Thanks

I have a picture I took of it this morning, but I can't post it. I printed it out and am going to take it to the Sony place and compare it to theirs. I might just raise a stink there and try to get it replaced.


Thanks

I have a different brand and I have to turn my green down just a little. I had heard that this is frequently necessary because bulbs tend to go a little toward green. I don't know if this is true or not.


My green showed up mostly in darker areas, mostly noticable on facial shadows. Guys would look like they had green cast whiskers. Dropping the green gain control (not the tint) solved the problem.


Another area that causes color shifts can be the LCD panel or the optical light integrator. These usually result in one side of the screen being green and the other magenta, however. That doesn't sound like your problem.


I think you're on the right track of comparing it to other units if you can.
