Panasonic Viera TH-37PX8B Green Screen When Turn On DVD Player

Hello I have recently purchased a Panasonic Viera TH-37PX8B. Have set it up and it works fine with sky and normal analogue aerial but when I come to turn on the DVD/VCR player the screen turns to a green colour but it still functions with sound. Have tried checking the way it is all connected and it seems fine, any ideas?

    Thanks 4 reply. I had a scart lead from DVD to TV. Should I just be using a single cable from the yellow DVD output to the yellow TV input?? Will I still get sound and a picture?? Thanks

    when switching to dvd i get agreen screen the dvd still works but with agreen picture have checked cables seem to be ok is there away to tune in dvd to tv

    Also have a Panasonic TV. Connected the sky box to the DVD recorder, and then DVD to TV, as I have no normal aerial signal to connect at moment.

    Exactly the same happens when I turn on the DVD player, the screen turns green. If I fiddle with the scart in the back of the TV I can sometimes correct it, but not ideal as scart lead is only just hanging in.

    The problem is certainly the Panasonic LCD TV. My trusty dvd player also has the serious 'green'; problem with the purchase of the Panasonic. The player worked fine on my old TV and is also excellent with a Sony LCD TV. I do not want to splash on a new DVD player as I have a PVR. My Philips DVD apart from the scart has only 4 sockets, a CVBS, a coaxil, and left & right audio out, in comparison to Component, Y, P8, and >R on latest models. Can anyone please help? By asking all round, I am told the only realistic answer is my Philips DVD player and the Panasonic TX-32LXD85 are simply incompatible, how realistic is that. HELP??

    I have the same problem but all the white in the picture comes through pink. Sky and Wii box work fine

    Same problem for me, I even went with my DVD player to the panasonic
    dealer and we tested together on 2 different plasma TVs over the SCART
    cable. The problem only occurred on the panasonic viera, not the other
    plasma TV ( think it was a samsung ). Waiting for an official answer
    from panasonic now ...

  • jan-ray May 04, 2009

    I have the same problem exactly. Might try getting some new leads instead of using the scart lead as suggested.

I had the same problem, after reading the forums and playing around for a while I cracked it. It was to do with the output from the DVD player, in the DVD player setup I changed the output from RGB to s-video and bingo! Hope that helps

Same problem with DVD connected to a new (March 2010) Panasonic TX L32G10B . Solution was to change DVD video out setting from Ccart/RGB to Scart/CVBS. No idea what that is but it worked, and pleased, as the DVD is a £30 effort from Asda.

Had the same green screen problem with my Panasonic TV when connecting a new DVD recorder using a scart lead - even down to pulling the lead till its almost falling out!
Reading on the forums it seems to be a common Panasonic fault.
Instead of using a scart for output I used the Component connections. Red, blue and green for the video signal, and red & white for the left & right audio.
Use the setup menu on the DVD and set video output to progressive.
To watch output from the DVD I now just select 'Component' on the TV from choice of AV inputs. Doesn't switch automatically like it would with scart connection, but everything works fine.
It may not be the solution for everyone, but it works for me, and it's a lot cheaper than buying a new DVD !

This sounds to me like you have connected a "composite" signal to a "component" input, specifically the green input. Make sure that you have the correct cable. A composite cable will contain only 1 video cable (yellow). The component one will have 3 for video (green,red, blue).

    If you have connected the correct color of cables (eg. Yel to Yel etc.), then the next item to check is in the TV itself. A composite signal (Yel) contains information about all three colors (Red,Blue, Green) and the TV will decode the single video signal in to the component parts that then are processed separately. If you are getting just Green, then either the decode process is not working properly or the Red and Blue signals are being lost. One thing that would help is to know the timeframe during which the set turns green. If it is green all the time, then the decode section is suspect, if it takes a while, it is possible that there is a bad connection that is heat related or a defective component also heat sensitive.



    One other thing to check is to be sure that the DVD Is set to output COMPOSITE signals rather than COMPONENT. Some units use the same set of RCA output jacks for both options. The output may need to be set within the video setup menu of the DVD.



    Please update this with the info requested above and I'll try to track this down.



    Thanks,

Green vertical line down the screen!


Hello,

Most likely the failure of the Screen.

If you purchased the product new, and have the receipt Panasonic will repair it FOC from what I understand, at least 3 years, your TV is no where near that old yet.

If you bought it, but don't have the receipt.....

Green interference on Panasonic TH-PX75U


Since the set is only 8 months old, it should still be under warranty. This may only be an internal connection problem, but opening up the unit will void the warranty. I would suggest that you call for warranty service. This is a problem with the set and has nothing to do with external devices or interference.

Keep us posted.
