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

Need to know how to connect what color cables to TV & DV2150


If you use an HDMI then you just need to go from the DVD player out to the TV Input. If you have RGB cable (Red Green Blue) then hook the RGB to the output of the DVD player and to the Input of the TV. with that option there will be a pair of audio as well. They will be red and white. Red is your right and white is your left. They will go from your output from the DVD to the matching input on your TV that you put the video into. (ex. Video 1 pairs with Audio 1). HDMI carries audio and video so only one plug in.

Dvd color mostly blue and pink, colors look weird


try connecting thru an hdmi cable from your dvd player to your tv, check the colors then.. I'd say you have crossed your component cables.. match the connector letters a/b/x? and plug them in one after each other.

Trying to connecting my Bose lifestyle to my Samsung led smart tv to play a DVD with a yellow video cord and picture is blurry and double and has jo color? Any ideas how to fix Bose lifestyle is older...


Without the specific LifeStyle model # it's not easy to say for sure, but it sounds like you might have a composite cable plugged into a component video output of the Bose. Assuming it does not have HDMI output, it might have white/red/yellow (RCA-type jacks, aka "phono") and that yellow jack is a composite video output. It would plug into the same color jack on the TV. There are also RGB (Red/Green/Blue) component outputs on many devices and similar inputs on the TV, so you have to match like color out to same color in and make sure the TV is set to composite video input, not HDMI nor component.

Also could just be a bad cable. It's always the cheap things that we overlook, so with the same output/input setup, assuming you match type, try a different cable. The actual color of the end on the cable does not matter, but don't plug a yellow-colored output jack to a red, white, blue or green input jack on the TV - that won't work.

Vizio M550SV no sound. Is there an audio card or does the main board have to be replaced?


See page 8 here:
http://cdn.vizio.com/documents/downloads/hdtv/M550SV/991UG_M420-470-550SV.pdf


From the top
- HDMI - both Audio and Video come from device via one cable.
- RF Coaxial (aka CATV) - both Audio and Video come from device via one cable.
- 15 Pin Dsub (they are calling it RGB), Video comes from this cable and Audio is from a dual 1/4" plug (looks like a headphone wire at both ends).
- Component (this is true RGB) uses RCA type cables - two sets of cables, cable one has 3 RCA at each end and they are color coded, as follows Red/Green/Blue, cable two has two RCA color coded as follows White/Red. Cable one is Video, and cable two is audio, total of 5 connections at source and 5 connections at tv.
- Composite AV - one cable set, coded as follows - Red/White/Yellow, Red/White are audio and Yellow is video.
Hope this helps.

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.

How do I attach my dvd to the 42 inch tv to watch a movie? Do I just attached the RGB connections?


An HDMI cable is best however a set of Component cables will also work. The Component (RGB) will also carry a high def image. You will need five cables in all. The Red, Blue, Green for the video and two additional RCA cables for audio (red and white). Color match the inputs to both the DVD and the TV. Select "Video" source from the Input menu of the TV. Confirm this worked.

NO RED


as a cable tech I have seen this before, you either have the cables from the sourse plugged into the wrong color or the cable is bad itself. get a new cable, you can check the tv by connecting a DVD player to it, if the color is fine on that then you know you might have a connection problem. if its bad on the DVD, then you may have a tv problem. Most TV's have more than one RGB input, try changing inputs, and double check to make sure the red line is in, If you are using an HDMI cable then all you can do is call a good tv repair man and hope your waranty is stil valid.
