    Hello

    I just got the AVIA disc today and I think I did all of the video calibrating stuff correctly. However, when I put in any DVD, the colors of everybody's faces is a real ugly, almost orange-ish look to their faces. On the disc, they said to turn off TV color tones. I don't know what this means, but my TV has a Color Temp button with Middle and High. I don't have the option to turn it off, so I"m thinking this might be the problem.

    Anybody else have this same problem? Everything else SEEMS to look correct, but I think the Color and/or Tint is WAY off.

    Anything I can do?

    Mike

    I sounds like you have the Misubishi "red push". It's a known problem where the red tint is just too much. Go over to HTS and look in their Mitsu section. There is a cheap circuit that you can build with parts from Radio Shack to lower the red input. Another fix is connecting the TV to a computer and re-programming one of the EPROMs with the correct color values. If you don't feel comfortable with either of these, get your TV calibrated by an ISF certified specialist. A lot of them hang out in the Display section here.

    Mike: I'm going to move this post to the "Display" fourm where you should get more focused responses. [​IMG]

    Mike, run the AVIA Color Decoder Test pattern and adjust the Color control to show no more than about 10% Red 'push'. That should take care of skin tones at the expense of de-saturating all the other colors somewhat.

    Thanks for all of the replies. I'll look into all of those options. I'll start with the red decoder. You see, I didn't really want to do it at first, because when I did the blue test, everything was set perfectly. However, when I did the red test, I checked back and all of my blue options were a little shaky. But I'll try it, nonetheless.

    Thank you very much
