Colors out of Whack on HD input 4 only

Recently all of our colors went out of whack all of a sudden on 3 and input 4. On DVR recording and DVD's too. So we called the TV repair man - he fixed it brought it back - not fixed - called him again - fixed it brought it back - not fixed. Called the repair man - went to the shop to verify it worked - looked fine but it was not hooked up to HD -- brought it home - it worked well on 3, DVD's and the DVR recordings BUT when you place the TV on input 4 with HD the colors are whacked out again. Removed the HD cables and everything is fine on input 4 - replace the cables and its whacked again. I changed cable boxes but not the cables. Hooked up the new cable box - colors whacked out again only on input 4 with HD. Could it be the HD cables or is there something still wrong with the TV.

To get the functionality you're looking for you'll need to to take the cable running from your DVR output and connect it to the input on your DVD recorder. Next you want to connect a cable from your DVD recorder output and connect it to your TV. If this is an HD set up you want to use HD Cables for all of the connections.

you most likely need to replace the convergence ICs. If you are lucky, they may have unsoldered pin connections at the PCB, you can try re-soldering those loose pins. What usually happens is that because of the heat generated, the pins have become detached at the IC also, thus the need to replace the ICs. Some of these have either fuses or resistors to the ICs that have also opened & will need replaced also.

Connect dvd recorder to cable box and hdtv

I have posted a tip that should help you out with your problem follow the link below but there is one minor variation for connecting to your TV.

On step 3 of the connections section substitute the follow for your situation.

You will need 1 component cable (Red/Blue/Green/Red/White cable)

3) Connect the Green/Blue/Red connectors to the back of the DVR labeled "COMPONENT OUT" matching the colors. Connect the same ends to the input of the back of the TV again matching the colors.

4) Connect the last two connectors (Red/White) to the back of the DVR to the AUDIO IN on the TV.

Other than this variation all shoud be the same.

Good Luck...

Problems establishing audio output from DVD RW to TV

If you own a Digital Video Recorder, such as TiVo, or a DVR from a Cable or Satellite provider, then you know you can record to the device's hard drive to view TV shows at a later time, much like the old VCR. However, saving those TV shows becomes difficult as the Hard Drive starts to fill up. The answer to saving your shows is to record them to DVD! This can be accomplished easily by hooking up a DVD Recorder to your DVR
Here's How:
  1. 1)record a TV show on your DVR that you want to save to DVD!
  2. 2)Turn on the DVR, DVD Recorder and the TV that the DVD Recorder is connected to. In my case, I have my Samsung DVD Recorder (no hard drive) hooked up to my TV via an RCA Audio/Video cable from the rear outputs on the DVD Recorder to the rear RCA inputs on my TV. I use a seperate DVD Player for playing DVDs, but if you use your DVD Recorder as a player as well, use the best cable connections you can to connect to the TV. See the articleTypes of A/V Cables for more info.
  3. 3)Connect an S-Video or RCA video cable and composite stereo cables (red and white RCA plugs) from the DVR to the inputs on your DVD Recorder. If your TV has Component inputs, connect the Component Out from the DVD Recorder to the Component In on the TV, otherwise you can use S-Video or Composite. You will still need to use RCA audio with your video connection.
  4. 4)Change the input on your DVD Recorder to match the inputs you are using. Since I'm using the rear S-Video input, I change my input to "L1", which is the input for recording using the rear S-Video input. If I was recording using the front analog cables it would be "L2", the front Firewire input, "DV". The input select can typically be changed using the DVD Recorder remote.
  5. further instructions continued in my next comment post please read.

Color of peoples faces are not right!

Have you tried swapping cables to see if you have a defective cable, or just checking to make sure all the connections are tight? I had strange color when I changed my dvd player and finally traced the problem to one of the component video connectors being slightly pulled off of the back of the dvd player.
