Question about Sony KDF-E42A10 42 in. LCD Television
I have had a Sony KDF-E42A for about 18 months. It's connect to a cable HDMI input and a composit input from a DVD (not Hi-Def) player. The color from both was supurb until recently. Now there is a yellow tint to most everything from both inputs. I can change the hue setting and reduce it, but it's still there. I have made no other changes in the settings or inputs. Does this indicate the end of the life of the bulb, or something having to do with the different LCD inputs?
Since this yellow tint color in on both HDMI and your composite input you may have a bad lite engine. This part is very expensive. There are no other way out. sorry. Part number A-1123-071-A
Average cost $504.00

First, you must figure out If your TV has component video inputs. This is a set of five cables (red, blue and green for video and red and white for audio) and will give you the best picture on an hdtv
Then, If your TV does not have the component video cables, you will be using the red white and yellow composite yellows the system came with. A very simple connection.
Last, If your TV does have the component video inputs, you will need to buy a set of the Nintendo Wii Component Video cables from Walmart, Target or any other gaming store. These will enable widescreen view and the best picture quality.
To connect your DVD player, you need to located the composite video inputs and s-video. Composite video is a yellow, female RCA jack, normally found next to two audio jacks, one red, the other white. The three jacks together provide an interface for audiovisual connections. The red RCA jack connects the right channel of a stereo system, while the white RCA jack connects the left. The yellow composite video jack rounds out the set.
When playing the Wii, you will need to be on the correct video input "Component"
When playing the DVD, you will be on "Composite/Svideo."
