Lack of red color

The only colors that show up on the screen are yellow and blue. Red is missing. What should I do? I tried changing the color temperature but that only worked for a little bit of time.

The quickest thing to check will be the cable. Make sure that the cable is seated properly on both ends. (pull it out and reconnect it on the TV and on the source end as well.) What happens if you wiggle the cable or bend the wire just near the connector end? If the screen flickers or appears better when you do this, you should obviously replace the cable. (HDMI, Component, etc..)

If that does not work then the next thing to check will be the female connectors themselves within the TV/source housing - I've seen many DVD players have poor solder joints so that repeated pulling of a cable or other torque causes an internal connection to go bad. Does this happen with all sources (DVD, CABLE, SAT, etc?) You should first check the cable that connects directly to the TV.

I have a tv that only shows variations of blue and yellow no matter what i do to the menu color options. However the menu will show all of the colors but not the normal screen.


it sounds like an rgb problem it depends what your playing thru your tv but if its coming thru a component lead eg red green and blue it sounds like your missing the red feature also it could be a pin bent on your scart which is carring the red portion of the picture , What kind of set is it and what are you playing thru it ?

Hook up of dvd to tv


hey I think you need to use component cables blue green red from the player to the tv, make sure the blue green red ports are also on the tv, note: red yellow white composite cable will not interchange with blue green red component cable or connection.

simplify- blue green red= component
red white yellow=composite

*wires must match colors on both tv and player inputs.

then set your input on your tv to where you conected the cable.

Color changed suddenly, no red, just green/yellow/blue


Sounds like the color wheel has gone bad and needs to be replaced. This is located behind the back panel.

Take time to get used to the settings, you may think the screen looks dull at first. The truth is most people have way too much contrast on their TVs.
These settings will also work for Cable or Dish hookups, in which case you may change the Noise Reduction option to Medium to reduce signal noise.
