Re: dvd color is off
Depending on how it is configured to your TV it could be high contrast with the TV. One thing you might want to try is replacing the video cable if you have a spare. If you are using an RF modulator and watch DVDs on Channel 3, you might want to replace the coax line between the box and the TV set.

I think I know what the "skin tones blue" problem is-you probabaly have the composite video(for the old video-on-one-cord format) connected to the blue of the component video input.(component video is the red/blue green RCA type connectors).
The HDMI should work hooked directly to tv through An HDMI input but if it doesn't, try either watching yourself or have someone watching while you twist and try to push all three(blue, green ,red) connectors into their in/out jacks. I feel composite gives you better picture anyway> the HDMI is just easier because it carries sound and audio. Anyway, one of your jacks is probably not in all the way>
You have posted this in the Panasonic DMR-ES30VS section.
Please note which product section you are in before posting your question.
For the Sony DVP-SR200P there could be multiple reasons for it only showing in B&W.
Was this a recent problem, is this a new hook-up, has it always been this way?
In the setup menu there is a setting for Custom Picture Mode. Could someone have turned the color down? You can go to the setup menu and "Reset" the player to the factory settings.
How is this connected to your TV? Check all cables to make sure they are plugged in, test each one by unplugging it, and then plug it back in fully.
If you are using a composite cable (1 cable yellow plug), be sure you have plugged it in from yellow to yellow.
If you are using the component (3 cables red-green-blue plugs) hook-up, be sure you are using cables only designed for component hook-up, and have plugged them in correctly, red to red, green to green, blue to blue (Be sure you've plugged the red cable into the red video not red audio).
Are the cables in good condition? No breaks, loose connectors, they weren't smashed under a piece of furniture? Have you tried a different set of cables?
Test the DVD player on another TV. Does the same thing happen? Did you "Reset" the DVD player? Maybe the DVD player is bad?
Find another DVD player and test it with your TV. Does it work OK, or is it black and white too? Maybe the connectors on the TV are bad? Is there a custom setting on the TV for that connection? On some TVs you can adjust the settings for each input (INPUT 1, INPUT 2, ....) maybe the color setting is turned down?
There are may possibilities, but these are some of the basic things to check.
CONNECT YOUR DVD PLAYER TO SOME OTHER TV .IF THE COLORS ARE OK ,THEN YOUR TV IS AT FAULT .
THE COLORS OF YOUR TV CAN EASILY BE RE ADJUSTED BY A TV SERVICE MAN.
THE CORRECT RATIO OF RED ,GREEN ,BLUE NEEDS TO BE ADJUSTED .
That happened to me when I went switched from S-Video to the red, green, blue component cables. If thats the case you will need to change your VIDEO OUT settings on your DVD player to one of the YUV settings.
