Color fading in and out with some DVDs

I recently purchased a DVD player (Phillips), and the color fades in and out, light to dark while I play certain DVDs. It doesn't do this on all DVD's. What's going on here? And how do I fix it?

Re: Color fading in and out with some DVDs

This is the same problem I have and I am using an RF Modulator. It seems that DVD's of television shows I played show fine, but DVD's of movies have this light to dark repeated movement.

Supergirl 13 color tv/dvd combo plays CDs but not DVDs...

If cleaning did not fix it the optical pickup for that unit is damaged in some way---if the set has audio/video INPUT jacks on it just buy a DVD player and hook it to the set.

If no jacks you are finished--DVD portion of the unit if available costs more than the entire set.

17 yr. old 35" RCA loses color intermittently. Picture & sound ok

Three guns Red Blue and Green in the picture tube of an old CRT set. If one of the guns goes out it effects that color. Sounds like one of the guns inside of the tube is going out, To costly to replace for such an old antilog set that will have to have a convertor box next month anyway.

DVD player problem

You may have had a brief power outage you did not know about. Then the DVD player needs to be unplugged from the wall and started up again or your lens may need to be cleaned Because your dvd player is only made to play region 1 discs and vcd's are region 2. You need to buy a dvd player which will play all region discs or is rated region 0 which is the same.

Dark Blue Screen

You might've done this already, but first I would try the "Magic Focus" The button can be found all the way to the left of the buttons panel on the tv itself. If that has no effect, try playing around with the settings within the tv. Click menu on the remote and see what happens when you try settings like color, balance, and contrast. Report back.

It is not clear whether one DVD or all DVDs play in black and white. If it is only one make sure that the format of the DVD is correct. If it is all DVDs, given that the VHS tape and cable play with color, there could be a problem with the chroma circuit in the unit. This is probably something that a technician would need to diagnose. Good luck.
