Re: Colors No longer True

If you are using the component jacks (red, blue, green, red and white) to connect the DVD player to the TV then check that all cables are securely pushed all the way into the jacks on both the DVD player and TV. I have been called to several houses with that exact complaint only to find that those heavy 5-conductor component cables have pulled themselves halfway out of the jacks.

Check to be sure your cable colors match the colors on the back of the unit. Are they Red Yellow and White or is there Blue and Green involved.? Also make sure the TV is on the correct output. for the input ... in other words if you are plugged into Video 1 make sure the TV is on Video 1

Our Panasonic DVD-RV32 player plays movies in blk & white even if the movie is a color movie....

this is a cableing issiue. I assume you are playing it through a SVHS cord. check to see which pins may be bent. If it is true and none of the pins are bent then you simply need a new cable.

wikipedia talks about these color and non color pins
If you are not using SVHS cables and instead are using the RGB or red green and blue RCA connectors then you may have them on the wrong color on either the DVD or the TV get a light to be certain the color you were trying to line up was the right one.

You may have a bad cable here as well. on the back of the unit it doesn't say RGB it says component Pb Pr and Y but just look at the colors of the RCA jacks. Side note here you can use a different cord to test them out, even one of the red, white and yellow cables, Just make sure that the jack goes green to green and so on you don't have to have a green cable in between it, it is helpful but not necessary.

also for reference here is the manual

My Sony DVD player is only showing colors in green and purple hues. Could it be a connection problem?

Yes. Could be the color signal jacks in the back. Make sure you have them plugged in properly, green for green, blue for blue, and red for red.

The colors are wrong on the screen. everything is orange and green and pink. just started after 6 months of perfect play. changed hdmi cord and port and that didn't help. it may be from overheating, but is...

Not a solution, but this will still allow you to watch DVDs until you carefully research customer feedback on DVD players. (Which I didn't do when I bought my DVP3962!)

That happened to me after 6 months. I used the A/V cables, then after a week or so I tried HDMI again. It worked for another 5 months, and is now crazy colors again.

Colors wrong on DVD player

The problem is with the cabling, assuming you are using component cables please make sure that the cables are in the proper locations (red to red, green to green, blue to blue) and firmly seated. There are also issues with using cables of various lengths where the signals to not all arrive at the same time.

Dvd movies have green shade on tv

Check to make sure that *all* the RBG cables are properly inserted into the dvd player. We had the exact same problem for the past year only to discover that the R cable (for red) was not pushed in...hence, all dvd movies had a green hue to them.

Playing recordable dvd

Your player may only be able to play DVD-format discs. Try converting the video with Nero or WinAvi or DVDFlick to true DVD format.

Sony DVD player color problem

All These units need servicing, They all are having problems with the video output circuit. It could be a coupling capacitor or the video chip itself heating up and distorting the output after short playing periods.This may be a simple fix of changing the output coupling capacitors. But it also may be some internal distortion in the chip. These unit need to be tested on a oscilloscope and check out in the video out input section to look for possible component failures.You should contact a service center that will test your unit and give you an evaluation of the cost effectiveness of a repair. Hope this helps you with your problems.
