Sony DVD player color problem

My sony DVD player has started showing colors in purple and green hues. What could be the problem? Can I resolve it on my own or do I need to take it to the Sony service center?


My Sony DVP-NS72HP is also only showing colors in purple and green primarily. This is a new dvd player (last 3 months or so). I've gone through the manual and reset the dvd to factory settings as well.

Safely try playing with the cable connectors on both your dvd and tv end - does it have any influence? if so, try inserting them more firmly or you might have a problem with one of the cords.

SOURCE: Sony DVD player color problem

A few weeks ago my DVD player suddenly started playing everything in black and white. I thought maybe it was the TV because it's old and the DVD player is hooked up to it thru the VCR. But I tried it on another TV and it's still black and white. Everything is plugged in correctly and I didn't change any settings or anything. Can anyone help? Or is it time to get a new DVD player?

Why is there no color

If using component video out please make sure that all cables are firmly and securely connected to the player and the TV.
-Component = Green/Blue/Red cables or jacks.

If using the video out please make sure that the TV color settings are not set to grey or black and white.

If everything is connected properly I would recommend to connect the player to another TV to see if the same issue will occur. Also check the color settings on the DVD player under picture mode.

My Sony DVD player is only showing colors in green and purple hues. Could it be a connection problem?

Yes. Could be the color signal jacks in the back. Make sure you have them plugged in properly, green for green, blue for blue, and red for red.

Hooked up dvd sr200p to color...

If you are connected useing the component video cords (red,blue,green,red,white) it sounds as if you have the red,blue or green cords connected to the wrong color of jacks on the back of the TV or the DVD player, recheck your connections.
If all is good there, maybe one of those cords are bad?
The Sony DVP-SR200P DVD player is on the bottom end of their model line up, and you may have received a bad one right out of the box!

Sony dvp-ns425 player has the word VIDEO in upper right corner appear and disappear every 20 seconds or so. It is in the same green block letters as all the menu/control titles so I know it is from the dvd...

That word Video in green color could be TV's on-screen display as DVP-NS425 has another kind of on-screen display that has track info, time info etc in display.
Please press Display on TV remote to turn off that green color Video on-screen display at top right corner.

Getting a GoVideo DVD4000 to show color on my new SONY LCD

sometimes you can get the cable mixed up on the video. Make sure you have the right color cable in the right slot. The white and red cables are for sound only and they have to connect in the same gouping as the video cables.

Sony DVD player color problem

All These units need servicing, They all are having problems with the video output circuit. It could be a coupling capacitor or the video chip itself heating up and distorting the output after short playing periods.This may be a simple fix of changing the output coupling capacitors. But it also may be some internal distortion in the chip. These unit need to be tested on a oscilloscope and check out in the video out input section to look for possible component failures.You should contact a service center that will test your unit and give you an evaluation of the cost effectiveness of a repair. Hope this helps you with your problems.

DVD player not working right

Check your cables between your DVD player and the TV, this play has component video outputs that could possibly cause this issue.
