HDMI to DVI gives pink screen

Television: JVC I'Art AV-32DF74 (2 years old-1080i w/DVI input)
DVD: Toshiba XD-E500 (brand new-HDMI output)

Never had anything hooked up to digital input on TV (always used component hook-ups) until now. I've tried two different adapter cables, but picture has a pink tinge. Any suggestions?

    Component out works fine, just not the digital (HDMI/DVI) connection. Unfortunately, I have limited funding so I don't have another DVD with HDMI or another TV with digital in to swap out to check which item is acting up. I was hoping this might be a situation someone else may have encountered. Both the TV and DVD work fine with component out, but why limit the picture resolution if digital hook-up is available?

    I've tried 2 different HDMI - DVI cables with the same results!

  • benonbase Oct 12, 2008

    I'll take a look at the contacts and plugs. The DVD is brand new, but TV is older. I have some non-conductive contact cleaner which would do well cleaning the contacts. All for the sake of a better picture...sheeesh!

    Bought another DVD player with HDMI out. Same problem...guess the problem lies with the DVI-in on the TV. I think I'll live with it hooked up to composite-in...TV is too heavy to take anywhere for repair!

    Video card? We aren't referring to a computer here. It's a DVD player connected to a TV with a HDMI-DVI adapter cable. The TV is 1080i, the DVD is set for 1080i, but the screen has the dreaded pink tinge. I've tried 2 different cables and now 2 different DVD players with the same results. It would appear that the DVI input on the TV is the culprit since all other connections work just fine. I've even spayed the DVI socket with contact cleaner and there's no improvement. Wingling the connection doesn't change anything, so there is something within the DVI board/connections that must be causing the problem.

ONE: First thing to do is a hard reset. Do this by unplugging the power cord for 15 minutes. Then try it again. If that does not help, unplug it for 3 hours, minimum and try it again.

TWO: If the reset does not help, using a dvd player connected try adjusting the screen resolution.

THREE: Check the TV menu to make sure all the correct settings on HDMI to DVi connections was set.

FOUR: If you have another tv in the house, bring it to this location and plug it up on the same cable connection to see if it is working

FIVE: If no results, try to concisely give me the symptoms to help me understand what is going on overall.

Check whether the TV is HDCP compliant - if not this may be the problem. You can also try a different TV set or a simple Monitot which has a DVI Input. It is highly unlikely that the players hdmi socket is faulty so the problem is probably your TV. There is DVI to RGB Adaptor found in the market which will be of help to you. You can contact Bestbuy for the same. Thanks

Make sure the Geforce outputs in DVI-digital
then  Boot the PC while the TV is on and connected. This allows the card to read the EDID from the TV and provide the best resolution...

 
Most displays work best at their native resolution, which is either 1920 x 1080, 1280 x 720, or 1024 x 768 for most HD TVs. It sounds like your video card has difficulty handling resolutions that high and that may be your problem.
 
One has to remember that DVI/HDMI is capable of carrying two types of Colourspaces: RGB and YPrPb. Unless modified, the PC will always output RGB.
Do you any other components that use HDMI that you can test, or another HDMI port on your TV that you can use? If not, then the best you can do is swap the cable and contact your provider about the problem,  Make sure the Geforce outputs in DVI-digital

Try another HDMI compatible device on the same TV, if you get the same result then waht you want to do while the jacks are plugged in is to nudge the ports up or down left and right, then check if your screen changes looks.

-if it does, this means that your port needs attention from the inside, a possible loose or unsoldered connection.

- if it does not then you may want to clean the contacts of your tv or the jack itself.

if you have tried another HDMI compatible device on the same TV and had a diff result then you may concentrate on working with the TV alone. if it cannot be fixed by pure cleaning and corrosion removal, then you may want to get the TV checked by a certified local TV tech of the same brand...

hope this helps out, if you have other questions just lemme know...

Pink usually means the blue or green aren't coming through correctly.
Unplug all power cords
Try cleaning the contacts on both the hdmi cords and the receivers with some alcohol solvent.
It's tough to get in there, a paper match stick with a clean cut may work for you.
a thin piece of card stock will work too.
One of the contacts may have also gotten bent. I had this happen on my camcorder plug.
Good luck

    well it could be the cable or the output or the video input on the tv , it will need to be tested to determine the source of the problem

  • jason Oct 12, 2008

    then its the tv input circut or the dvd output circut( even though they never were used power is always applyed to those circuts) it needs to be tested to determine which one.

    You can try to leave the HDMI cable plugged into the tv and dvd and unplug the dvd power for for a little while( 5 min.) check it , if not then unplug the tv power for a little bit , check it , if not then they need to be tested to find out which one , or take the dvd to someone you know who has that kind of input on thier tv and see if its the dvd or not

  • jason Oct 13, 2008

    just because the dvd is new don't mean that there isn't a problem in it, but being that the tv is older, its probably the tv, but testing the dvd player on another tv is the easiest way to determine if its the dvd player or the tv. you can even take it to the place where you bought it and ask them to test it before you return it

I have a 2002 Mitsubishi Medallion TV. The only input for HD is DTV (no DVI or HDMI inputs). Is there a converter box from HDMI to DTV that will allow for 1080i resolution?


From looking at the back panel of the TV, the DTV input can be configured as a component video. The M-Link/DVI-HD port is also a DVI with HDCP port and maximum signal handled is 1080i. The M-Link should work with an HDMI to DVI cable or adapter. For this to work, the source must not be a computer or another device using the default computer video output (computers give RGB output). The DTV port would need an HDMI to Component video converter. See this page for some examples: http://www.hdtvsupply.com/hdtocoad.html . The first one in the list (for Netflix and Boxee among others) will give 1080i out if the source is set correctly.

Most DVI-HDMI cables are single link. I've seen some examples where DVI-I (single link) and DVI-D (dual link) cables are not interchangeable. If you have video problems, check your cable. An HDMI to DVI adapters will let you run an HDMI cable up to the TV and then converter at the TV as a separate connection.

I hope this helps.

Inputing HDMI signal to a WS-55313 55 via an HDMI-DVI cable


HDMI standard is a bear, especially "Older" versions. It should be possible to input HDMI to a DVI, either DVI-I or DVI-D, input, there are however DVI analogue too, in fact we have, 3 type of them, they are, DVI-I, DVI-A & DVI-D.... Also some HDMI do not send the Audio over it, as it should, so all in all it can be a pickle. So you MUST get a converter that works with your sort of DVI. You would have to select that DVI, input, which may be under Auxillary, or External or the like, try scrolling through your AV inputs, see if you "Find" it. if so, the set will "Read" the signal and display it automatically. The Audio, however will have to be done via the AV sockets, the Red & White stereo IN, from the DVD etc. If you have any other inputs such as Component Video, Green, Red, Blue, then this is the best way... The Audio, again must be routed to the AV, the Red & White Jacks. So ensure you have those outputs on your new DVD.
I have included a couple of links below about DVI & HDMI for your convenience. http://www.datapro.net/techinfo/dvi_info.html http://www.hdmi.org/learningcenter/faq.aspx

Try pressing the HDMI button on the remote control to toggle the display output to something that your television will recognize. You can also try The progressive button and see if that helps. I am assuming you model is the XD-E500 model.

I would like to know if I can connect a HDMI cable from My tv model WS-65315 to a Direct TV HD receiver?


NO> If your TV supports and have HDMI connections and your HD receiver has an HDMI output then you should have no problem displaying Video. Just make sure you change the input signal of your television to HDMI input. After looking at the spec's of this model these are the following inputs you have. your best picture quaity would be to use componet cables instead, which can show full screen 1080i format, your television does not show at 1080p whis is what HDMI is known for.
Connectors
Rear Input Connectors S-Video x 2 - Component x 3 - Composite x 2 - DVI x 1 - RF x 2 - 1 x RS-232C - Audio (RCA) x 6

Front Input Connectors S-Video x 1 - Composite x 1 - Audio (RCA) x 1

Rear Output Connectors Composite x 1 - Audio (RCA) x 1 - RF x 1

Another good option is use to use a DVI to HMDI connector and hook it up this way. But note: you will have to use audio cables for the DVI input.

Powersurge made my HD setting revert to low def.


Your TV plays High Def material through either Input 4 (uses component cables R,G,B) or through Input 5 (Uses DVI cable).
Today most equipment uses HDMI cable for High Def or it may have a component (RGB) output that you can use. The DVI hookup is best, so you need a HDMI to DVI cable or Component Cables (Red, Green, Blue). You need some source that OUTPUTS High def (ex. 1080i) either through HDMI or component cable. You need to either connect the component cable(R,G,B) from the source to the Input 4 on the TV or connect the HDMI to DVI cable from the source to the Input 5.
You need to set the AV source on the TV to AV5 (if you are using the DVI input) or AV4 (if you are using component cables).
If you want to play Highdef source like Blue Ray then you can just connect the output of the blu ray player to your Tv using either the HDMI to DVI cable or component cable (Red, Green, Blue) and set the TV input to AV5 (for HDMI/DVI) or AV4 (for component).
But if you are trying to get Free High Def from an antenna then you will need to have a component that can OUTPUT high def. The $40 converter boxes don't do this - they simply convert the Digital signal to Analog (non high def). What you need is a High Def TUNER that OUTPUTS High Def. I was looking for one for this same reason and ordered the centronics ZAT 502 HD. But it cost about $80. Then I saw that Tivo had an upgrade deal where I could upgrade my existing Series 2 Tivo to Tivo HD for $99. It has a High Def Tuner in it. So I cancelled my order with Centronics and got the Tivo. In any case if you want Over the air HD you will need a High Def Tuner that will OUTPUT 1080.

Connection problem with HDMI cables on Denon AVR-589


Hello,
I want to clairify you install, you sat you have I an HDMI cable running from the Time Warner Cable box to the AVR-589, going in to the TV/CBL input. From the Denon AVR-589, I have an HDMI cable running from the output to my Toshiba RV525U television.

Check the connection at the TV, if as you indicated above you have an HDMI cable from the HDMI out from the Denon to an HDMI output on the TV, if this is the case you need to have that HDMI cable plugged into an input on the TV not an output

Sound Noise Using HDMI Cable


The first solution was to use the remote controls on the recorders and shuttle from 480p to 720p to 1080i.

The other solution was to run left and right audio cables from the output of the DVD recorder to the audio inputs of the tv. Then, go into the setup menu of the recorder and tell it not to output sound using the HDMI cable.

The first solution has to be done each time the machines are turned on for the first times of a day.

The second solution fixes the problem once and for all....
