  2. Press the "OK" button on your remote to select the "Picture" option. Press the down arrow button, highlight "Color," and then press "OK."
  3. Press the forward or back arrow button to increase or decrease your TV's color. Press "OK" to save the changes. Scroll down, highlight "Color Temperature," and then press "OK." Select the color temperature you want to use and press "OK."
