Question about Televison & Video
TV color is fine. But when I play a DVD it looks washed out..no reds. I can't find a place in the display menu in the DVD for color adjustment.
Solved the problem!Well, After reading two manuals on the Sony DVD player, I saw one cable not connected: the S Video connection. I connected that. Tried it out again, seemed a little better, but still not the full range of reds. At that point I thought the problem was either:
1) the cables from the DVD player to the TV
2) the DVD player is the problem
So, I thought I'd start with replacing the cables. Labeled them as to where they went, took them out and went to Radio Shack and explained my problem. The clerk I spoke to was very nice, said he had seen this problem before, and said there was a menu on the DVD for adjusting RGB settings.
So, I went back home, plugged in the cable, and went all thru the 2 Sony DVD booklets and the display menu on the TV. There was nothing mentioned re: color settings. Went thru the DVD menu many times, looking, looking. I felt I had come up with nothing.
Turned everything off. Turned back on. Put in a DVD: It looks great! :)
So, hoping it never happens again..cause I'm not sure I can repeat it! Maybe it was removing all the cables from their sockets and restarting...I know that sometimes works with computers...anyway.. At least I didn't have to buy a new DVD! Lesson: unplug, re:plug...before you trash it!
