How to reset a normal color on your SELECLINE 20800
You wanted to watch TV when, suddenly, you noticed your SELECLINE 20800 displayed catastrophic colors! Fluorescent, black and white, colors too saturated, or a burr in the colors at startup… These color problems are really unpleasant for your viewer experience.
This is why we have chosen to introduce you in this article how to reset a normal color on your SELECLINE 20800. We will see the problem of connecting the SCART, the possible TV settings, and the quality of the capacitors of your SELECLINE 20800.
SCART on your SELECLINE 20800
The SCART cable is the cable that allows an audio and video connection between your decoder and your television.
It is the cousin of the hdmi cable.
When it is loose or damaged, the quality of the audio or video on your television may drop dramatically.
In particular, your SELECLINE 20800 can have fluorescent colors instead of normal colors.
In this case, first check the connection of your SCART. Unplug it, clean its inputs and outputs, and reconnect it.
If this does not work, you must replace your cable.
You can find them easily in stores.
When you connect the new cable, be careful to turn off the TV and the decoder to avoid handling problems.
Your SELECLINE 20800 settings
It sometimes happens that after a power failure, your TV settings will change without your knowledge.
It also happens that a child takes your remote control and plays with it before turning off the television.
In both cases, your television may suddenly appear in black and white, or on the contrary, with saturated colors.
Do not panic ! Here is how to reset a normal color on your SELECLINE 20800 with standard TV settings.
Take the remote control of your SELECLINE 20800, and press “Menu” then select “Setup”, which can also be called “Main Menu”, “System Menu”, “Tool Menu”, “Setup Menu” or “System Setup”.
There, go to “Image”.
You are in the menu that adjusts the image quality of your SELECLINE 20800. Go to the saturation gauge.
You may have to go to a sub-menu called “Colors”.
If your image is in black and white, increase the saturation using the left and right directionnal buttons displayed on your SELECLINE 20800.
If your image is too saturated in color, lower the saturation using the “left” and “right” directional buttons.
Then, if your television is in black and white, go to the “RGB” gauge of your SELECLINE 20800, which can be divided into several gauges like “R1”, “R2”, “G1”, etc… Increase the gauges until the color is obtained.
It is not necessary to adjust these gauges if your television had the colors saturated. Finally, choose the display mode of the image you prefer for your SELECLINE 20800.
You will have the choice between “Normal”, “Cinema”, “Dynamic, and others.” This can help you find the display mode best suited to your tastes.
Capacitors on SELECLINE 20800
Finally, the capacitors may be at fault when the colors of your SELECLINE 20800 are not displayed correctly.
Notably at start-up, an image is displayed with colors that “drool”, then disappears after a little time of use.
If your capacitors work badly when cold, at start-up then, you have to change them. Capacitors are electrical components essential to the start-up of an electronic object.
They are made of an insulation and two metal wires.
Be careful, if you do not feel comfortable with the following procedure, bring yourself closer to an expert who will help you for a reasonable price.
Indeed, this procedure is highly risky as you may get electrocuted. Please unplug the power from your SELECLINE 20800, and ask a professional to do it if you are not an expert about electricity.
To repair the capacitors, you must go to the back of your SELECLINE 20800 television and remove the protective cover if the capacitors are not already visible.
When you see them, have a pair of pliers, and separate them from the TV. Next, place the capacitors, which you can buy for the price of bread in a store, in the right place and with the help of a welder, assemble them to your SELECLINE 20800. Wait a few minutes for the capacitors to cool down.
And now, the colors work again!
To conclude on resetting a normal color on your SELECLINE 20800
