Is there a way to fix the color on a television?
"Fixing" the color of TV is a bit vague. What's wrong with the color? There are some things that can be done, and some that can't. If the color is "off" and things are wack, there could be a handful of things that might contribute to the set's performance. Let's look at some. The (color) picture tube (the cathode ray tube, or CRT) has three electron guns in the back. They're all sealed inside the tube, and they stay there for the life of that tube. The cathode of the gun "wears out" after a while and it cannot support demands for "electron production" and high beam current. The cathodes of the guns are the same, but they can age a bit differently, and the supporting electronics may need to be adjusted to restore what is called the color balance. Certainly the beams should be adjusted so they run pretty much equally. But there are limits to how far up one can turn the "drives" without the color in the picture "bleeding" outside the edges of images. If the emission of one of the guns is "too low" and it can't be driven hard enough to create the nice, bright picture one wants, it might be possible to "restore" the cathode. In this process, a technician with what is called a CRT rejuvenator can "overdrive" the cathodes a bit in an attempt to get a bit more life out of the cathode, and, thereby, the CRT. But most shops don't like to do this because the process can damage the CRT and make it unusable. Plus, it may not work. It's not cost effective for them to burn time on this, even if they have the piece of gear it takes to perform the task. Let's look at some other stuff. It may be that the set has lost some of its convergence. What that means is that the beams aren't all "tracking" the same pixels at the same time. Convergence is something that a technician adjusts by connecting a piece of equipment (a "pattern generator") to the set that generates several different test pictures that can be used to line things up. The convergence magnets are tweaked to make things right. (In a few sets, the technician might have to actually go a bit farther to try to get the convergence back.) By the way, anyone who starts adjusting the convergence magnets without the equipment or the knowledge to competently set the CRT up usually makes things worse and can't get them back to the place where the adjustments were begun. A combination of these factors (and perhaps one or two other things) may be behind the need to "fix the color" of a TV. In this day and age, the set is probably at the end of its life. CRT's can be rebuilt, but almost no one does it any more. It's not cost effective to do that like is used to be. And it's not cost effective to buy a new CRT, either. New sets are dirt cheap. And that's the CRT TV's. How about a new flat screen? Or a good used set from a TV shop or thrift store? They're available to those on a budget. If you're stuck with a TV that isn't performing well and you're on a budget, start looking at the thrift stores, and the second hand stores. Check with some TV shops to see if they have some unclaimed repairs they're selling. If you're flush, treat yourself to a new set. Make it a fun adventure. Hang out in the stores for a bit and get an education. (Do not buy the first thing you see or are shown.) And donate your old set to a non-profit. Please don't toss it in the dumpster. The land fills don't need the extra junk. Good luck resolving your difficulties.

Depending on what is wrong with. I would start by plugging in the AC power cord, and take it from there.
The first fully modern color TV was announced in 1944, but color TV sets did not go on sale in the US until 1953. Color television has a long history reaching back to 1928. It's roots go back just a little further still. In 1925 John Logie Baird demonstrated the first working television system in L…ondon England. It used a spinning disc with holes in it to produce a moving image. This was the system used by the BBC for its first public television broadcasts in 1929. It was also the basis for Baird's demonstration of color television in 1928. By combining three discs with colored light sources and mirrors, Baird demonstrated the principles of using red, green and blue light to generate a full color image. The resulting product was cumbersome, poor resolution and probably noisy. But it did work and the principle of breaking down an image into three colors has remained in place until today. By the time Baird had a working color system, the BBC had committed to using the monochrome version and electronic versions replaced his electro-mechanical systems in the 1930s. In the early 1952, color was introduced as a commercial service in the US. Technically, it was a success but commercially, it was a flop. The color televisions could not show the existing monochrome transmissions so take up was poor and the whole service was withdrawn after only a few months. In 1954, RCA began their color service using an agreed signal standard known as NTSC. The standard was compatible with monochrome services already established. Unlike the previous attempt, this launch captured the imagination of the public and the following years saw an explosion of color television across the country. Other countries followed suit and by the end of the 1960s, most countries has color television. The color signal standards set out back in the 1950s have remained largely unchanged and are still in use today, more than half a century on.

The first color television was demonstrated in 1928 by John Logie Baird. This Scottish inventor demonstrated the world's first operating monochrome television, called a Televisor in March of 1925. The color version used three signals to carry and repreduce red, green and blue lighting to build a full color image. The system was electro-mechanical with a rotating disc required for each of the three colors and so it was cumbersome by modern standards. Nonetheless, the demonstration showed that full color television could be realised by mixing the three primary colors and it is still this principle that is in use today for color television. From that time onwards, color television was developed to the point that the 1950s saw the first commercial broadcasts in the US. The first attempt was in 1952 by CBS. Although it was a technical success, it was a commercial failure and was withdrawn after only a few months. Two years later, RCA began color broadcasting and this time, it was a commercial success.

Televisions are complex devices and modern ones use automated production to ensure the quality of the components that deal with the high data throughput found inside them. Fixing a television now requires information and tools only available to commercial repair centers. Older CRT televisions are …somewhat simpler but anyone asking this question should be warned that they contain lethal voltages which can remain present for days or weeks after the television has been switched off. If you are not qualified and experienced, avoid remove the case of any television. A TV repair is best left to the professionals. (MORE)
Commercial color television began briefly in 1953 in the US but was withdrawn after only a few months. It was relaunched in 1955 with a new color encoding system. However, the first color television was first shown in 1928 by John Logie Baird, the inventor of the first working television in 1925.
The first demonstration of color television was in 1928 by John Logie Baird. He was also the first to demonstrate monochrome television in 1925 with both demonstrations taking place in London, England. The color television demonstration was actually the year before the BBC began the first public te…levision broadcasts. The BBC adopted the black and white system rather than color so Baird's system was never developed into a commercial product. In 1939, Baird published a paper outlining a fully electronic color television system. Although he never had the chance to produce any working systems, the ideas were used in the future development of color systems in both the UK and the US. Commercial color television started in the 1950s in America and there were various demonstrations that took place in the late 1940s running up to the first launches. The very first demonstration of color television was by John Logie Baird in 1928. Three years earlier he had shown off the world's first monochrome television system in a department store in London. The color version was a development based on his monochrome system and represented another world first. The monochrome television system went into commercial service with the BBC the following year but there was little enthusiasm for the color system and it never went into production. However, in the early 1930s Baird modified the color television and produced a projection television that was used in movie theaters. Again, the color television projector was before its time and never became an established fixture in movie theaters. (MORE)
Answer . There were several different types of colored TV in the middle fifties (RCA won). Colored wheels verses three guns. There were experimental color TVs before WW II , but they weren't commercially viable.
A German patent in 1904 contained the earliest recorded proposal for a color television system. In 1925, Zworykin filed a patent disclosure for an all-electronic colour television system.

NBC made the first color broadcast when it broadcast the Tournamentof Roses Parade on January 1, 1954.
John Logi Baird, a Scotsman is often credited with the invention of the first colour television in the 1940s but the history of colour TV is rather more complex. He was certainly one of the first to produce an image that showed colour but most would agree that it was a far cry from the colour televi…sion that reached people's home some 10 years or so later.. The first commercially and technically viable system was launched in the US in the 50's and was the result of research and experimentation by many many people. I would hesitate to call it an invention but more a development of many concepts put forward over the previous years. The US colour television system was eventually based on a colour encoding system that was developed and approved by committees rather than a single person.. A search of the web will produce several interesting sites that describe the development of colour television. (MORE)
Some televisions have a device called an Integral Sound Switch.This switch can go bad causing the sound to be garbled or not heardat all. The speakers can also be at fault if the speakers havedamage. Installing external speakers can fix this problem in mostcases.
On February 28th 1954, Westinghouse released a color television inthe New York area. It cost $1,295 at the time.
The first tests of colour TV were carried out by the BBC in 1959. The first colour TV broadcast was the Wimbledon Men's Singles final in 1967 which was broadcast on BBC 2. In November 1969 all three UK channels BBC 1, BBC2 and ITV began full colour broadcasts. By 1976 the number of colour T…V licenses out sold those of black and white (MORE)
Your tv everything is green so you adjust the hue all the way to red so people look ok what needs to be fixed?
Sounds like your drive levels need to be adjusted. Green is a predominant color in TV's and usually the red and blue will become the weakest, first.
You can't afford to "make" a color TV. By the time you located and bought all the individual components to build it, you could have bought a new large screen plasma set.
On my General Electric vcr, when i play a vhs tape in it, I can only see wavy lines that move around in all directions. I can record something but can' t see it afterwards on this player, but can see it on another player. What's wrong with the playing part of the vcr? and how can i fix it.
The first color television was owned by John Logie Baird, the Scottish inventor of television. His first working television was demonstrated in 1925 in London and by 1928, he had the color version working as well. Sadly for Mr Baird, owning his own color television wasn't much use to him. Although h…e produced a full color studio system to go with the color television, it was never put into service so his color television remained unused. The first commercially available color televisions made an appearance in 1953 in the US. The system was a commercial failure and only a few thousand televisions were sold before the service was withdrawn with a few months. Who was the first consumers to buy one of the 1953 televisions? We will never know. (MORE)
Why? Because people wanted to see the moving pictures in colour, the same as they see things in real life. It was very difficult to create the impression of moving colour images by transmitted electronic signals in the early days of television, but eventually 'colour tv' was invented. There ar…e different ways that colour is made to appear on tv screens, but all involve the transmission of electronic signals to the tv set. The tv interprets those signals and rapidly makes a flickering coloured display. The flicker is too fast for the human eye to detect, it all looks like normal motion and the colours all look like true (or almost true) colours. This is an 'optical trick', so that you see, not a lot of different coloured dots, but the resulting blended shade or tone. To illustrate: In painting we know that the colour green can be made by mixing blue and yellow paints. This basic idea is behind the creation of coloured tv pictures, but a different set of physical characteristics of light are used. For more information, see Related links below this box. (MORE)
Make sure all your cords plugged both into your television and Cable TV or Satellite receiver are snug. It is possible one of your cords may have gone bad. You can check this by carefully moving the cords and see if this makes your picture worse or better; if so you know it is a cord issue.

My husband sat down to watch the game the other day after a hard morning of working in the yard. After siting down and getting comfortable in front of our new television, he became irritated. He couldn't see the game because of the glare from the window behind the couch. Working together, we found a… way to solve the immediate problem so he could watch the game and made a plan for a more long term solution. Step One: Look at the placement of your television in relationship to the sources of exterior light. Is there a better position or placement for your screen that would also work for your furniture and help diminish some of the glare? Make sure you think about which directions your windows face (north, south, east, or west) and if what time of day you will get the most intense light. Do the windows that cast the glare have curtains or window treatments? Step Two: Are your lamps causing glare? Or lights from other rooms? Much like the exterior light, lamps can cause glare too. If you don't want to watch TV in the dark, try moving the lamp around the room (or the screen) to see if you can find a better location with reduced glare. Step Three: Adjust the settings on your screen. Most television and computer screens can be easily adjusted for brightness and contrast. Computer monitors typically have the adjustments on the side of the screen, whereas with a laptop screen or a television you will have to go into the menu or control panel to adjust it. Lower brightness on a screen can help reduce that frustrating glare so get out that owner's manual to figure out how to adjust it. Step Four: Make sure you have the right window coverings. It might seem obvious that shutters and blinds can help reduce glare, but some companies create specific types of window fabrics like solar screen fabrics that help diffuse light and save energy and more traditional options like black out curtains. A professional window treatment company like Danmer will help point you in the right direction. Step Five: Consider painting the room a darker color. White paint reflects more light than beige paint, so even just a slightly darker shade of your existing color can help stop glare. A high gloss paint will reflect more light than a semi-gloss, so consider both color and type of paint before you repaint your office or living room to help reduce glare.. (MORE)
Sounds like a digital TV. Try unplugging it for awhile and then plugging it back in. That forces a `hard reset' of the microprocessor and should free the screen. If not, you've got some other type of issue either with the TV itself or with the source.
well its pretty easy, first you need to check and see if its power suply is charged. But it can cost up to 300$ expensive but worth it, if that is not the case you are not paying the bill, or your televisions color system is out and you need to replace it, but this future can cost 100$-200$ and all …together it would be very expensive if these tips do not work then something beyond my capability is happening.

Yes. First, the problem may be a matter of simple adjustments in the settings menu. Sadly, many manufacturers ship their TV's with the brightness turned way up which affects the life of the bulbs. If playing with the settings does not help, the next step may be to clean off the bulbs inside the casi…ng. This should be done by a technician. If cleaning the dust off does not solve the problem then bulb replacement is next on the list. (MORE)
How expensive it is to fix a LCD TV depends on the problem. It cancost upwards of 100 dollars if the problem is major.
Yes, You can fix a magnitized TV. Step one is you need a very powerful magnet( I used a alien magnet). Turn on your TV that has been Magnitized. Start stroking it to the outside frame until it isn't all messed up.
The first country in the Middle East to introduce color television was Iraq in 1967.
As for the sound, folks have complained that it's prone to getting really loud, then really quiet, without warning and seemingly without reason. This is caused by the auto volume leveling software in the TV. It's really quite terribly implemented. Turn off AVL/AVS, and this problem should go away".
Colour television had been around for while by the 1960s. The US saw regular broadcasts in colour from 1955. It took a little longer to make it to Europe, with UK and Germany starting to broadcast in colour from the late 1960s.
1954 was the year that RCA introduced color television in the US and was the first broadcaster to do so. In 1954 it is estimated that fewer than 5000 color televisions were sold at a price of $1000 each. It is hardly surprising that so few were sold. It was a very new technology so the number of c…olor broadcasts were limited. The major reason for the limited sales was the price. $1000 doesn't sound like a great deal of money but in 1954, that $1000 was worth around $8000 in 2010. With lower disposable incomes and far less credit available, that sum was out of the reach of most homes. By 1956 around 120,000 color televisions had been sold and the price had dropped to only $500 - still a lot of money but within the budget of many more than in 1954. (MORE)

On the television, you will see two buttons. One is facing right, one is facing left. The left one will turn the volume down, and the right one will turn the volume up. It's simple!
Yes,it is 100% possible,in fact I have 4kidstv and I have Direct tv,you just need CW.
This all depends on what the fault is. Some faults can be as simple as replacing a fuse or a single component. Others might demand a new cathode ray tube or LCD display module and those will often cost several hundred dollars. Modern television equipment is manufactured in a way that makes repair m…ore difficult than ever before. More expensive test equipment is needed and in many cases, a repair requires a complete module to be replaced instead of the traditional component replacements. Both of these tend to push up the cost of repair while the purchase price of televisions continues to fall. Sadly, this often means that it is less expensive to buy a new one than repair an older model. It is always worth getting a quote for a repair from a television repair center. All reputable firms will offer a price without making a charge. (MORE)
Color for television is a very simple principle that uses some very complex technology. In 1928, John Logie Baird used a theory that all colors could be created by mixing just three colors together. He chose the primary colors of red, green and blue. This wasn't a new idea but he was the first to us…e the principle for television. He used a camera that had three sensors. He used color filters so that one sensor could see only red, a second could see only green and the third would detect only blue. The three separate signals were sent to a television that had three light sources. Each light source also had the same three filters so they produced red, green and blue light. When they were combined, the image that was created showed all of the colors that were originally captured by the camera. This was the world's first demonstration of color television. Since then, color television is an every day piece of technology. The quality of the images has been improved dramatically, the clarity of the color is way better than Baird's first demonstration but almost a century since his experiments, we still use cameras and displays that split and then combine the three primary colors into a full color image. There are many complex techniques for encoding the three color signals as the signal is being processed and manipulated during a television broadcast. The information above leaves out those techniques because they would take many pages and some complex math to explain but the principle of color is exactly as described. (MORE)

It depends on the model of TV. In most cases, your solution is to take a toothpick and insert it where the button was. Push in on the toothpick (but make sure it's in the center of the hole) and you should be good. There is another option, buy a universal remote. As long as your TV has a remote s…ensor, it should pick it up. Don't forget to program the remote to your TV though. Between those two methods, your TV should be up and running in no time. (MORE)
In which way? This depends on what you need fixing. The easiest way though is to buy a new one. It also depends on brand and product. or try switching the white wire ,take the bendy bit out swap it around and put it back in again
You need to be more specific. Please restate the question with specific details of what is wrong.
Throw out the tv. An area in the back stores electricity and you can get shocked if you mess with it. When tv's had tubes, they were repairable. Electronic circuit boards aren't worth the effort or cost in most cases.
A German patent in 1904 contained the earliest recorded proposal for a color television system. In 1925, Zworykin filed a patent disclosure for an all-electronic colour television system. Both of these systems were not successful, however, they were the first for color television. A successfu…l color television system began commercial broadcasting, first authorized by the FCC on December 17, 1953 based on a system designed by RCA. On June 25, 1951, CBS broadcast the very first commercial color TV program. Unfortunately, nearly no one could watch it on their black-and-white televisions. This first color program was a variety show simply called, "Premiere." The show featured such celebrities as Ed Sullivan, Garry Moore, Faye Emerson, Arthur Godfrey, Sam Levenson, Robert Alda, and Isabel Bigley -- many of whom hosted their own shows in the 1950s. "Premiere" aired from 4:35 to 5:34 p.m. but only reached four cities: Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C. Although the colors were not quite true to life, the first program was a success. Two days later, on June 27, 1951, CBS began airing the first regularly-scheduled color television series, "The World Is Yours!" with Ivan T. Sanderson. Sanderson was a Scottish naturalist who had spent most of his life traveling the world and collecting animals; thus the program was about Sanderson discussing artifacts and animals from his travels. "The World Is Yours!" aired on weeknights from 4:30 to 5:00 p.m. On August 11, 1951, a month and a half after "The World Is Yours!" made its debut, CBS aired the first baseball game in color. The game was between the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Boston Braves at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn, New York. (MORE)

You just have to grab it by the hair and doggy style it until you get the right color you want
In 1968, but most areas close to the US-Mexico border already hadcolor TV since it was first adopted in the United States, circa1953. The full adoption of color TV was completed by the time theOlympic Games were inaugurated in Mexico City, on October 12, 1968.
It is possible, however only if a professional does the work. It isn't too expensive, though.
Assuming you mean electronic snow, not the cold white stuff that falls from the sky, that depends on your setup. First, check all connections, especially the antenna/cable inputs to the TV. All it takes is a loose connector to allow interference ("snow") to occur. If the connection to the TV i…s OK, start working back through the system. Check any splitters or splices to ensure they are not loose. If there are several TVs in your home connected to the same antenna or cable, the signal may become degraded by being split repeatedly. If this is the case, you can buy a coaxial amplifier that will boost the signal strength and improve your picture. (MORE)
