Color fading in and out with some DVDs

I recently purchased a DVD player (Phillips), and the color fades in and out, light to dark while I play certain DVDs. It doesn't do this on all DVD's. What's going on here? And how do I fix it?

This is the same problem I have and I am using an RF Modulator. It seems that DVD's of television shows I played show fine, but DVD's of movies have this light to dark repeated movement.

the most likely cause is the coolant needs to be replaced in the CRTs. Very common problem. You can get the Phillips CRT coolant kit at the following link which contains the coolant and step by step instructions. Its listed under the repair kit category.

Fading dvd picture


DVDs are recorded in Macrovision* format which distorts the video when playing through a VCR. This is an anti recording device to prevent duplication. You can try finding a decoder that connects between the player and VCR to override this

Usually if your getting it with the MENU then your connection is weak, are you going through a VCR or some other type of device besides directly to the tv? Try hooking unit directly to the tv. Besides that, its possible you could of messed with the settings, go to the menu, go to advanced and do a reset to make sure no settings were adjusted, the disk has to be out of the tray while you do the reset.
