Hello. I have an Hitachi 46" hdtv, model number L46S603 (I think) which I won in a raffle back in 2010.
For about 3 weeks now the color has been just terrible. Kind of like the contrast and brightness were calibrated very poorly. After a few minutes, almost like the tv finally warmed up, everything would snap back into place to the great picture I was used to would return.
Last night, after going through the above routine, the picture suddenly went very dark. No brightness and very little color (mostly yellow/orange). As an example, I was watching a baseball game when this happened. After the change, I could make out the the foul lines on the field, but could not see any of the players, the grass, the stadium, etc...
I tried swapping HDMI
cables, and running our BluRay player, but the same image quality was present with all options I tried.
I have not idea what this could be and I'm hoping it maybe a simple fix. Would prefer not to buy a new tv. Do you have any ideas what could have happened, and do you think it can be fixed?
