I purchased a Colby upconverting DVD player. When connected to my Sony via HDMI the colors all shift to a yellowish hue. There is only one HDMI input so I can not try another and the player works okay via component, but doe not upconvert on component. Player and cable work fine on my Vizio in HDMI. I called service and they think it may be a compatibility issue.
Sony admits that it is not a compatiblity problem. The tech hookei will ever buy!d up his Sony DVD and it lacked red. He then changed a small board, then a large one. Nothing helped. He then checked and found that even the composite inputs were not giving red. Now they say it is the B-Box. That has been replaced 2X already when they could not get the cable card to work. I have about had it with Sony. That is probably the very last Sony product that

Unless your DVD/VCR is Upconverted to use HDMI, then you would use either the RED/GREEN/BLUE + Red /White leads to your TV and then use the TV remote to select whichever your TV names that input. If it is Upconverted, then simply plug the HDMI cable into a spare HDMI input.
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.
Hey smittybd, According to information provided by the manufacturer, this specific model DVD player is only able to provide upconverted 1080i images via its HDMI output and a maximum 480p resolution using its component connectors. Please keep in mind that while component cables are able to support 1080i and 1080p resolutions, not all hardware (TV's and DVD players) will support these resolutions through component connections. If you're having difficulty locating a model that specifically supports 1080i resolution images through its component connections, you may wish to try visiting individual manufacturers' websites for more information. Some companies (such as Sony) will provide detailed information regarding what each type of connection is capable of in their owner's manual documentation. Hope this helps you out. Sincerely, Aaron Go Ahead. Use Us.
Hello Tsmith4, Have you tried another source such as a HD cable box on the same component input (Y Pr Pb) By doing this you will eliminate the TV or the DVD player. If the picture shows great using the cable box on that same input then we will assume that the TV is ok for now. You may want to also check the DVD menu under progressive scan that it is set to progressive scan. if the picture is still not good, we would want to look at the I/O board on the TV. The red path after the Video switch maybe open. If this is the case we will have to go to board replacement. I will tell you what board to change.
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
Most new HDMI DVD players use High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP)on the HDMI output.If you try to play this on an older TV that is not compliant with these new standards it will not work.This standard came out late in 2004 that is why your older player still works. There is also a service bulletin from JVC about upgrading the software on your TV for HDMI compatiblity issues.If you want a pdf file of the bulletin I can send it to you.
I've been seeing alot of this out in the field. The cable is thick and heavy, after awhile the HDMI connectiion inside the set comes apart and breaks from the main board.
In my opinion the only difference between Component jacks and HDMI inputs is the thought of reducing the amount of wire mass in the back of the unit. It's more pleasing to the eye.
If it's under any kind of warranty, call a servicer. The main PCB will need to be replaced.
If it's not under warranty, use component input cables, you'll get the same performance from your set and save a few bucks.
