BD-C6500 RGB Issue

Occasionally my BD-C6500 displays in a weird magenta, yellow and cyan colored picture. This is sometimes accompanied by flickering. Sound is normal. Color on broadcast channels, OK. Samsung tech had me reconfigure wireless connection, but still have this problem, occasionally. The only fix is to unplug blu ray player. Just turning it off doesn't help. Any idea what this might be? ET

RGB Issue

Would help to know the make and model number of the TV you are connecting to; also, what type of cables (HDMI, component, RCA) you are using to connect.

More RGB info for BD-C6500 bluray

Thanks for asking! Old schoolMagnavox lcd tv model 37mf231d/37. Works great since I replaced the capacitors. Cable is Monster HDMI home series. Wireless connection has been good, always.

You might try resetting the player back to the factory default settings. Many times this will correct a "glitch". With no disc in the tray, press and hold down the Stop button on the player itself (not the remote) for 8 to 10 seconds. The display on the player should read 'Reset' and you should see the initial setup on your TV screen. If this does not help the issue you should swap out the HDMI cable with another one.

Samsung tech had me try the reset already. The cable was brand new, do you think it is bad? My warranty is almost up, would hate for this to continue. If it is the player would like to address this asap. Thanks for the input Techno-q
