However, when I switch back to analog and also the DVD colour displays!! Do I need another cable to get the colour? TV set to PAL. Have used the box on another tv and works fine, only difference is that I am now using an indoor aerial rather than outdoor.....

Are you using component cables (red/green/blue)? Check your connections to see that they are all seated properly. When using component cables, if only the green is plugged in, it will give you a black and white picture. You will get color once you plug in the red and blue.

What kind of sources are you using? what kind of cables are you using? Need these kinds of specifics to ehlp you out.

Colors in QL-711V shifted to green


Hi, I had the same problem and I wrote an email to Nu. They wrote me back that I should use the Factory reset feature which you have to go through the Factory Menu to get to. Instructions to do this are as follows. I got to the menu my first try but it has been a pain to get back to it. I hope it will be easier to access for yours.

Hope this helps

RCA F32665 Shows only gray screen, sound works.


You have a problem in the video circuit. Any video that comes into the set is not getting to the picture tube. The menus come from the system control microprocessor. This shows that the input at the picture tube itself is working. Also you system control is working. The signal would have to be traced through the set to find out where the loss is originating.
