Colour problems with dvd recorder model dvp3980

When a disc is inserted into the recorder the colours are vibrant and inappropriate to the show displayed. the recorder has been operating well for the last 1 month without problems. i have checked the cable and television - all seem to be working okay.

    Our DVD player is having this same issue. Areas that are supposed to have a black color are instead showing up as a bright green. Bright pink blotches randomly appear and disappear, and the picture is very blotchy.

We just called Philips and they instructed us to unplug our DVD player from its power source and plug it back in after 30 seconds...and it worked! He couldn't tell us why this seemed to solve the problem but he did say that he had many people call in regarding this same issue with this model of DVD player, and that this did the trick in most cases.

We had this problem when our DVD player was too near the satellite receiver box, i.e. a heat source. We unplugged it an moved it away and the problem was resolved and it never happened again.

Magnovox dv220 mw9 plays in black and white only


Hello
The output signal's colour system to this player is NTSC. Just look whether your TV is NTSC system compactable. Check whether the disc is recorded in any other colour system, like PAL or SECAM. These are the reasons for absence of colour to the picture. Check whether the colour control of the TV is at minimum.

If you have both a VCR and DVD recorder there is no problem. Just connect the A/V output from the VCR to the A/V input of the DVD recorder. Start the tape and press record on the DVD recorder. (these connection are RCA type ans coloured white, red, abd yellow. Just connecxt them colour to colour. Couldn't be simpler. When the recording finishes, transfer to an optical disk. After finalizing, the VOB files from the optical disk can be converted to mpeg4 or any other format you desire using your PC.

Panasonic dvd recorder model dmr-e55eb/ebl. played dvd,no problem - ejected dvd - green/blue colouring appeared on TV which disappeared when dvd recorder switched off. since then unable to play dvds. ...


This is a problem with either the logic or the power supply. Without seeing the machine and taking measurements inside, I can't state for sure the exact problem. These are decent machines. I would suggest that you bring it to an authorized Panasonic service center for a repair estimate. Post the results here and we'll suggest the next steps.
