This sounds like the color processor IC is not working properly. If this is the case you will have to have this checked by a qualified technician.

Most likely it is in the cable box settings accessed through the cable remote, not the tv settings which are set up through the tv remote.

Hello

Before taking this to a local repair person, I suggest you check with your cable provider. See if they are having trouble with their HD transmission and then have them test your lines. Out here in Arizona with have constant problems with HD due to heat, rodents and poor installations. Your DVR only recorded the problems that were on your set. If these prove fruitless then take the TV to a reputable repair person.

Good Luck

Ten years is two lifetimes for a Plasma, it most likely is either the display panel itself or a main board, in either case not cost effective to repair or smart but the real problem would be parts, I bet almost zero is available for this.
