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.

It sounds like your screen might be going bad. Normally there is no setting you need to be doing to adjust colors on your screen. There are some settings when you click Start/Control Panel/Display to look at your display settings, but these normally just control the color around the windows. For example the normal or default color for the strip that is at the top of your internet browser is blue but you can change it. I would say that when you boot your machine if the colors are not what they should be normally during the boot process, then your screen is going bad. You might try Opening a Word Document then type words such as Black, Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, etc. on different lines in the document. Then highlight the word and change the font color to match the word. This might let you see if your colors are true colors or if the screen is bad.
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 ?
Remove & re-seat the component video cables at both the TV and the DVD player.
If the problem continues, disconnect BOTH ends of the BLUE cable and the RED cable. Connect the BLUE cable to the RED jack at both the DVD and TV, and connect the RED cable to the BLUE jack ob both the TV and DVD. If the RED color comes back and the BLUE is missing, then replace the RED cable (the red cable is broken and will not pass the signal that it is connected to).
If all works, reconnect the colored cables to the corresponding colored jacks at both the TV and DVD player.
If the RED color still won't display, isolate the trouble to either the DVD player or TV by connecting the DVD to another TV w/ component jacks. If the RED is still missing, it is a problem inside the DVD player - if the RED displays, it is a problem with the TV.
