    Panasonic Viera PC-to-TV Via VGA has Purple Tint

    Purple Panasonic PC>TV Problem:
    The VGA cable uses three primary color RGB channels.
    Red, Green, and Blue.
    The picture is made up of pixels or dots arranged in a grid along the "X" horizontal axis and "Y" vertical axis.
    The computer mixes the intensity of each color channel to create a unique color per pixel.
    All RGB at 100% creates white.
    R+G creates yellow.
    R+B creates magenta, ie purplish.
    G+B creates cyan.
    So a purplish tint sounds as if your Green wire has no signal, which may indicate a faulty VGA cable or VGA socket.
    Put another way, (R+G+B)-G=R+B=magenta.
    So try another VGA cable, spray all socket pins with "Servisol " or similar contact cleaner.
    All 0%=Black; All 50%=Grey; All 100%=White.

    My pictures have a purple tint to them

    You're either using old/expired film, or taking photos during dusk. Color film is balanced for daylight photography. Using it under conditions other than that will result in varying color casts on the resulting images.

    Fluorescent lighting: Greenish
    Indoor bulbs: Reddish/orange
    Outdoor at night/dusk: Blueish/purpla
    Ourdoor at dawn: Pink/blue

    Or, you may have just gotten bad print work done. Try a different lab.

    Projection has yellow tint

    From your description, it sounds like a problem with the blue color. Green LCD=purple onscreen, Red=cyan(baby blue) onscreen, Blue LCD=yellow onscreen. It could be a lot of dust on the blue lcd panel, or worse, might be a burned polarizer filter behind the lcd panel due to excessive heat. If you can focus on the yellow and its tons of yellow specs, its dust. A burned filter however, must be replaced. A technician trained in projectors will have to do it. The filter material is glued to a thin glass panel and is replaced as a single filter. It's a very involved repair.
