Green hue

Unplug the TV from the wall and plug it back after 45-60s should fix the problem. However, it will come back from time to time so the same procedure will reset the video board. You'd want to upgrade the firmware on the ATSC tuner as well because old firmware was built before the final standard and when the TV goes digital in June 2009, it wreak havoc on all older HD TV. Go to hitachi website and download new FW for your TV. Copy the FW to an SD card and follow procedure from Hitachi to upgrade. It works wonder for my TV after the upgrade.

1}DVDR 3480 playback on many Dvds widescreen insteadof 4.3 as set. 2) my Vcr. has 3pin phono. Dvdr scart to Phono .Xt2 says nosignal. Phono tophono (cam socket) no signal .cannot copt tape to DVD. 3)B W...

1) The 4:3 / 16:9 option only optimises playback for that particular type of TV. The 4:3 setting also allows you to set the output between:

  • 4:3 PS - expands the picture vertically and horizontally which gets rid of the black bars, but you also lose the left and right edges of the picture.
  • 4:3 LB - Letterbox format, displays the full picture from the disc, with black bars top and bottom.
The PS option loses the bars on 16:9 widescreen DVDs, but may still leave bars on true cinema widescreen DVDs, which are 21.7:9
This is normal.
  • 16:9 - Optimises the picture for a widescreen TV. Again True cinema widescreen DVDs will still have black bars.
2) All of the external inputs will show "No signal" until there is actually a signal playing into them.
EG to copy VHS to DVD, you will need to select the relevant scart or phono input, and press play before the recorder will register a signal and allow recording.
Some bought VHS videos have copy protection, and may cause problems when copying to DVD.

3) Greenish playback maybe caused by colour setting on TV being too high. Also check Hue or Tint settings on the TV, if it has them.

4) For some reason, in their infinite wisdom, Philips omitted the Video Plus facility from this model.

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.
