DIY Fixes for Hisense TV Color Problems
Now that you have the possible causes of your Hisense TV color problems, let’s discuss some possible fixes. Note that you can carry out all the fixes in this section by yourself even if you don’t have any expertise.
Fix 1: Power cycle
This is usually the first and easiest line of action to take when you notice that your TV has developed a color problem. Power cycle refers to unplugging your TV’s power cable from the socket and plugging it in after a few minutes. Most people refer to this process as “hard reset” and it helps to fix temporary software glitches that your TV may be experiencing. Follow the steps below to carry out a power cycle on your Hisense TV:
Step 1: Switch off your TV using your remote control. Don’t use the power button on the TV except if your TV remote isn’t working.
Step 2: Unplug your TV’s power cable from the socket or any other power source it is connected to.
Step 3: Leave your TV to rest for between three and five minutes.
Step 4: Plug the power cable back into the socket or designated power source.
Step 5: Test your TV to see if the color problem persists.
The power cycle process refreshes your TV’s internal processes as well as the electricity flow. It also protects your TV from breakdowns, power accidents, and glitches. If this method doesn’t work, you should try the next DIY recommendation.
Fix 2: Factory Reset
If you use a mobile phone, then you must be familiar with the idea of a factory reset. Clearly, when you carry out a factory reset on a device, you are restoring it to the original settings by the manufacturer. It wipes any custom settings that you have made including the ones that may have affected your Hisense TV.
We suggest that you should carry out a backup of all the files on your TV to an external storage device before you carry out this process. After you do, take the steps below to restore your Hisense TV to factory settings:
Step 1: Pick up your TV remote and press “Home.”
Step 2: Scroll through the menu options and select “Settings.”
Step 3: Scroll through the options under Settings and choose “System” then select “Advanced System Settings.”
Step 4: Click ‘Factory Reset” then select “Reset everything.”
Step 5: Your action in Step 4 will reveal a set of on-screen instructions. Follow these instructions to complete the process.
Once you complete the factory reset process, your TV will reboot and it will be as good as new. All your old settings are gone and the color settings should be just alright. If the problem persists, then you may be having a hardware issue. Try any of the other fixes below to solve the problem.
If you have had your Hisense TV for more than 5 years, then the pixels may be beginning to burn out. The bad news is that no matter how hard you try, you cannot fix this issue. However, you can slow the process down by reducing how much you use your TV. A good way to do this is to switch the TV off when it is not in use. You may have to replace the TV screen if the pixels are worn out.
Water or drop damage
If your TV has suffered water or drop damage, it could affect its color. In the case of drop damage, the TV may have a crack o dent. You shouldn’t use water to clean your TV screen. If you know that your TV has experienced any of these, you need to speak to a technician. The TV warranty does not cover such damages that are caused by users. Just like with worn-out pixels, you will have to change the TV screen for you to solve the color problem.
By now, you should know how to fix your Hisense TV color problems. We have shown you the possible causes of the problem and the ways to fix them. If the problem persists after you have tried out these DIY fixes, you should contact the Hisense Customer Center closest to you.
