Dvd color mostly blue and pink, colors look weird

try connecting thru an hdmi cable from your dvd player to your tv, check the colors then.. I'd say you have crossed your component cables.. match the connector letters a/b/x? and plug them in one after each other.

The screen gets pink contrast only on the right side of the screen. The left side of the picture will be perfectly clear and the right side has pink hue. What could cause this and how can I fix it?

could be a panel driver (if it looks like lines) or just poor digital connection(most of the time) could be in the tv (the connector is faulty) or your cable.

Would need model number to search properly. On some sets a capacitor "C2601" of Y-Drive assembly contacts the audio bracket and it is damaged, can cause a abnormal picture.
