Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV740 Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Green image Hello, I just switched my TRV-740 on and the display is very green. There appears to be no red content at all. I plugged it into my computer via firewire to make sure it wasn't just the LCD, but it was the same. I also reset the camera with no luck. I'm pretty upset about this. Is it a major repair job or is there anything I can try? Many thanks, Terry.

The yellow blue and green.. which one is video plug?

What you have is a component cable. By the sound of the cable it seems like you might have this kind:
The Yellow / Blue / Green / Red cables are all meant for video. The back/side of your display will either have matching colors, or it will just have a yellow, white, red. You want to plug in the Blue, Green, and Red cables. If your display doesn't have this, it's not capable of component video, in which case you will want to plug in the Yellow / White / Red into the AV slots.

Y/Pb/Pr outputs are green; needs

There is no calibration for the component video that I know of, check your cables you may have a bad Pr cable or the Pr/Pb ones may be mixed up.

Y (the green one) is for luminance, plug in ONLY this connector and you should see a black and white picture.

Now connect the Pr. You will now see red tones.

Now connect the Pb. And you will see blue tones.

Reverse the Pr and Pb and see what happens.

Oh and make sure you don't accidently have one plugged into a composite video or digital audio port.

Still not looking right?

Go into the input menu of the TV and change the component (or colourstream) input from RGB to Y/Pr/Pb. (most TVs do not have this feature.

Hope this helps!

Picture is red

If you are running component video, make sure the blue is plugged in and in the right spot. Component video works like this: the green is a black and white image, the red and blue are cover overlays to make the image display properly. So if everything looks plugged in right, then try plugging in a composite video (Yellow) or S-video cable switching to the appropriate input, and see if the image is still red. If so, go to the set up and set the set to factory defaults, and see if that fixes the color issue, It's possible that the color settings on the TV are messed up, with the S-video plugged in go through the set up menu and see if you can correct the color issue IF THE IMAGE IS STILL RED WITH THE S-VIDEO OR COMPOSITE VIDEO, otherwise the issue is a problem with the component video cable.

Green tinted people

The only time I have had issues like this was because of the Component Cables not being in the right position (the Red and Blue connections switched), or a bad Component Cable where the Blue Connection is not receiving a signal. Swap out the cable to be sure and double check that it is properly installed. Green to Green, Red to Red , Blue to Blue.
Hope this helps,

NEC LT35 color problem

If you're trying to project video, then the unit needs professional service. If you're trying to project from a computer, you may have a loose display cable, broken pins in one or both ends of the display cable, or broken conductors (wires) within the display cable. The computer sends its image information as a template of RED image components, GREEN image components and BLUE image components with the projector overlays to create the complete image with blended color values. (The computer also sends HORIZONTAL and VERTICAL synchronization signals, but those don'e affect the color content of the projected image.) That's why I'm suspicious of the display cable, conductors or pins.
