Blue Flesh
« on: January 02, 2009, 05:19:57 pm »
Skin tone is showing pale blue,blue or dark blue on all our dvd's.
It's happening on both tv's & both dvd players including the one bought about 3 weeks ago.
It is happening on my granddaughters Mama Mia dvd which is playing now.

Anyone got any suggestions as to cause/solution?

Stick it in your laptop/PC and see how it looks. It's very unlikely to be the discs, it's also very unlikely to be two seperate TVs and DVD players. Have you all been doing drugs?

Interconnects?

Interconnects?

I suspected this.The options are limited of course by the male/female conns..
The original player/tv combo worked fine for a good while & then suddenly the problem materialised. :-\

You need to find the common problem, it's unlikely that two sets of cables will be duff.

1. Try it on a computer - no interconnects and next to no user colour changes
2. Is it just you that thinks it's blueish?
3. I think it's lupus.

Ignore 3, t'was me being silly. Lupus is an autoimmune disorder mentioned every minute on House, a US medical series.

Zilla, I can't believe I missed that lol.

My only other suggestion is ambient lighting on the screen. What DVD is it?

Cant be the DVDs. It would be statistically impossible (well OK extremely unlikely) to corrupt a single DVD so that all that happened was it went blue and its not going to happen to a group of DVDs ever. Most likely the interconnects, how is the DVD connected via SCART leads ? SCART connectors are the work of Stan and tend to work loose.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Do you have very yellow ambient lighting? This would tend to make tv pictures appear blue. Try turning the lights off.

Done that with no resulting benefit.

Maybe you have spent months watching American programmes where everyone is tanned and now you are watching Coronation Street and a selection of Ken Loach films. HTH.

Damn, this happened with my parents' DVD player, but it was greenish, not blue.

When I was up over Christmas I tried some logical experiments. SCART leads were not the problem. The DVD player was not the problem, as it played perfectly on their other tv, on both SCART leads.

I've looked this up before, and I suspect some RGB/Composite Video discrepancy between what the DVD player outputs and the TV expects. Traversing the DVD player menu seemed to confirm the output was RGB, but I couldn't see the equivalent on the TV on-screen setup menus.

Can you try connecting with a different type of interface (eg composite - yellow RCA or component - normally red/green/blue RCA)
