Too much green in picture

My zenith plasma television has too much green when I hook it up through the composite video jacks, but it has a good picture when I use the computer jacks. Do you know what this could be?

    There is only one set of composite video jacks.

  • bribild Dec 03, 2008

    There is a jack that kind of looks like a coax input, that is close to the composite video jacks, but I'm not sure how to, or what I can hook in it. It is round, and has two short knobs on the side of it.

    I have a Zenith 50" plasma tv. When I use the red, green, and blue inputs, the picture has too much green in it. If I use the monitor plug, the picture is fine. The circuit board, for the composite video, unplugs, and is inter-changeable, but I don't want to buy it, if I don't have to. Do you know if this would fix it? The model# is, P50W38H. Thanks, Brian

    That might be the problem, but I think they are plugged in correctly. The red goes to red, theblue to blue, and green to green. I tried to hook up another dvd player to the composite video jacks and there was still too much green. I also tried to tweek the tint, color, etc...

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your 4th post/comment is significant. You posted "The circuit board, for the composite video, unplugs, and is inter-changeable," Perhaps this would address your 6th post "don't want to buy it, if I don't have to.". If they are interchangeable, then relocate/reposition the boards, any order as long as not the original placement. If one of the boards is defective, then the color that is too much would change to blue or red from green.

Additionally, access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings wouold be to your advantage assuming you have a and familiar with DVM or VOM.

Incidentally, we appreciate your continued patronage. It would seem that you have availed of FixYa before on your Mitsubishi WD-62725 and your JVC AV-32D104.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    The best connection from your cable/satellite box, home theater system, or DVD player is HDMI (flat multi-pin connector). If your video source doesn't have HDMI, the next best choice is component (color-coded red, green, and blue jacks), followed by S-Video (round 4-pin jack), then composite (yellow jack).

The conenctors or the cable are bad. If you know for a fact that the cables you are using are good, then its probably the board where the ports are sodered too.

You could try to re-soder them but only if your confident you can.

This happens mostly because they have little or no support behind them so when you push in the plugs, it pushes the connection back inside and damages and can eventually snap the sodering points off.

This happened to alot of Dell latitude laptop power connectors we used ain school, kids would pusgh the charger connector in to hard and the three prong connector would break off and fall inside the casing. this was do to just cheap manufacturing on dells part but later corrected in new models.

anyways. You can try to open it up and fix the connectors yourself or go to a t.v. repaire shop, or just order that one part.

I would try the cheaper first.

The green is part of the signal getting interference due to the damaged sodering or pins.

Thats why it works when you use it through other ports, they arent damaged so they look fine.

Let me know how it goes and good luck

Your plugs are plugged in incorrectly, as into the wrong outlet. Check both the tv side and the dvd(?). Also try changing the saturation of green if you can in the menu settings on the tv

I can't get my emerson lcd tv to recognize a dvd player hooked up to Video 2 component jacks. What do I do?


Are you using RED/BLUE/GREEN cable? Some DVD player will have to activate the Component output (or select either composite video out or component video out). I would ty using the composite video (yellow) cable first to see if you can get the picture through your TV. Post bak what you find.

I just purchased this tv. I had no trouble hooking up the satalite cable box but When I hooked up the dvd player the picture is only in black and white. How do I fix this?


Are you using component video (red/blue/green) rca jacks, or composite video input (yellow) rca jack? You need to match the color but watch out and do not get confused with the red and white RCA for audio.

Vcr hookup


Try using a S-Video cable if your VCR has the connection. Otherwise, use a RCA composite-video cable on one of the AV inputs of the TV. The cable has a Yellow, Red, White color, the same as the jacks it goes in.

When i hook up dvd player to a insignia plasma tv i get a picture & sound but it is in black&white.how do i get to be color


if you connect composit video from your DVD player to the "Y" jack of the tv then you will get only a black and white picture .. the composit video out of your DVD has to be connected to the composit video input of the TV .. or if you have component outputs on your DVD then you can hook those up to the "three" component inputs of the tv .. (you have to have all three hooked up plus 2 audio cables ..

We are unable to get video (picture) on our TV, when we hook up to our new DVD/VCR combo. The combo doesn't have an S-video port and our TV does. We get perfect sound though.


Your TV should also have a regular composite video input jack (yellow) in addition to the s-video input. Use that input instead of the s-video. The video won't be quite as clear as with s-video, but you have to work with what the combo gives you.

DVD hook up


can you tell me if your using Composite (Which is the yellow RCA style Connector),
S-Video (which is usually a single black connector),
or component (which is Red/Blue/Green).

You may need to go in the menu options on your tv for the appropriate video input. Select S-video if necessary for video input on that channel. If that is not the case you may need to reverse that and select in the dvd players menu S-video. Im assuming that its S-video by the tv.

But if you don't have any video then you are unable to view the menu. So in that case what we need to do is. If it has Composite and you are not using it. what you need to do is hook up the Composite yellow plug into the corresponding jack. Then see if you can get video. Once you have video you can then select in the menu of your dvd player what output source to use. In your case this will be S-video.




If you can give me the dvd player make and model. I can give you the exact step by step. This is just a general FAQ for the information I have. -Thanks Nate
