Question about Televison & Video
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?
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

Yeah, ignore all the technical faf, and check all your cables are plugged in properly. I just did, and now the colour is perfect.

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 !

Has anyone had this happen when just watching cable, not trying to watch a 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).

Solution 4 worked for me. I fiddled about with the DVD scart out lead, and the colour came on.

Solution 2 is the winner, well done and thank you, it took a matter of seconds.
