Yellowish color from DVD

When connecting a DVD through RGB cable, I get no red color in picture. My satellite color is fine via HDMI. I tried adjustments, different set of cables and tried different inputs without changing picture. Any ideas?

Hello Tsmith4,
Have you tried another source such as a HD cable box on the same component input (Y Pr Pb) By doing this you will eliminate the TV or the DVD player. If the picture shows great using the cable box on that same input then we will assume that the TV is ok for now. You may want to also check the DVD menu under progressive scan that it is set to progressive scan. if the picture is still not good, we would want to look at the I/O board on the TV. The red path after the Video switch maybe open. If this is the case we will have to go to board replacement. I will tell you what board to change.

Best regards

Hi Kelly,
I believe the Sony Trinitron WEGAs do not have an HDMI connection on the back of the TV. If they do it would be labeled as HDMI input below that familiar looking HDMI narrow horizontal connector. But I believe what you have is the RGB connector which looks like three round female connectors which are color coated Red Green and Blue. Now these RGB connectors are a form of high definition but it's not a direct connect for for your HDMI DVD player or your XBOX 360 or what ever you want to hook the TV up to.
You'll have to convert you HDMI to RGB. you can still purchase DVD players with RGB outputs but if you already have a device that requires a TV with HDMI, you can buy a converter. Go to RadioShack or BestBuy or search online for a HDMI to RGB converter cable . It should look something like the picture below.
RED GREEN AND BLUE for video. And then the white and red connectors that are banded together are for your audio.
Good Luck

I have a Sampo 42 inch plasma multimedia display monitor model PME-42S6 (s). I got a blu-ray player and connected it via the AV1 inout. The screen is now green and red. What can I do to fix this?


If you have a Blu-Ray player you should be connecting it via HDMI, which is the only way to receive a full HDMI picture on your television. But you may connect it via the component inputs if you do not have an HDMI cord. The component cable consists of five color coded cords of (1) red and (1) white cable for the audio, and (1) blue, (1) green, and (1) red cable for the picture. Connect the Blu-Ray using this cable and you will be fine.

Do I need a separate HDMI cable to connect my DVD player to my Sharp Aquos LC32D47UA? I only have 1 video input but 2 RGB inputs. Do I need to unplug my satellite and use that input. Can't I have both...


If your DVD player has a composite or S Video output, you can use them instead of using an HDMI cable. However, you need to connect the audio portion as well - RCA left and right, white and red, respectively to the set.

Circular yellowish tinge projected on screen. Outer edges white.


First, check your cables on the input side. If your using RGB, it could be a bad cable, If your using DVI or HDMI, it's more than likely the convergence chip and will have to be serviced. Try a DVD player as a source connected directly to the unit with a new cable; ie. HDMI, DVI, or component and check the picture. If it's still the same, it definately needs serviced. If you need further help, post a comment and I can help you further. Hope this helps.

Can i connect toshiba satellite a205 to tv?


Yes VGA carries RGBHV--RGB and Horizontal and Vertical Sync information along with DDC info where available.

Now is that port on your TV a d-sub 15 pin standard VGA connector?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

If it is, then yeah you should be able to output VGA from a PC to the TV with a proper cable.

However if the TV has DVI or HDMI connections on it, it's better for you to connect it that way. DVI/HDMI is a digital signal and if it's a digital-based display tech TV, then you're better off using that. Also if the TV does resolution above 1360x768 (i.e. if it does 1080p) you can get higher resolution by going via DVI/HDMI...

Denon AVR 588 7.1-- Sound setup questions


This reciever does not decode the audio through HDMI, the HDMI ports are simply a pass-through. To get audio you need to connect an optical audio cable from the PS3 to the reciever also. I figured this out after 2 hours of trying to get audio from the HDMI cable. Here is a link that shows the different audio formats supported through HDMI by the different Denon models. It looks like the AVR-788 is the lowest model that supports audio through HDMI. Hope that helps.
