    It says to look through the blue filter and adjust the color until what..........happens?? Also, the tint test is the same way, i am lost during that part too.

    You adjust the color and tint until all the blues match.

    I think it goes this way: The test pattern to be used has the usual seven wide upright color bars and also some blue and pink squares below them. Through the blue filter you see four vertical bars each with a "larger top half" and a "smaller bottom half". You adjust the color control so the top halves match the respective bottom halves. You adjust the tint control so all four bars seen through the blue filter match.
