Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

THe picture on the tv is really weird. Evrything has a red tinge to it and the colours are all funny. It looks a little bit like if you shove the contrast value to the highest possible number or possibly like the way the ator was seeing people in the movie, those sort of slightly pulsing circumferential smudges on the pictures. It doesnt show on all the colours either. Somebody told me it might have something to do with the power supply thing in the tv going but i just dont know!

Our hdmi port on our samsung tv is broken... its showing pic and sound but the colour is funny its almost like theres a pink tinge to the colour so its not showing the right colours it should...

Before getting the HDMI port repaired, I would suggest trying a new cable and also make sure that it's the HDMI port on the TV that's bad and not whatever is connected to that port. Try a different DVD player or something... Do you have a different HDMI input on the TV you can use?

The picture was fine when tv was linked to the BT tv kit. Now it's connected to the digitak aerial the picture has a pink/red tinge. How can I correct this? Thanks Gary L

Hi Gary. Not sure if this will be of any help, but have you tried connecting a DVD player and seeing if that is still colour tinged. It may be possible that your TV may have developed a fault and coincided with changing your aerial and there is in fact nothing wrong with the new aerial. I hope I'm wrong. If you are connecting through a different signal input socket, that may also be faulty or dirty. Basically, until someone can come up with a possible reason and fix, it may be worth ruling out other causes for the problems. Regards, Steve.
