My TV is green when viewing digital channel; OK for DVD/PS3

by terribletvpic / April 17, 2011 12:44 AM PDT

My TV is green when viewing digital TV but was fine on analogue and also OK when using PS2/3 for games or viewing DVDs so there can't be anything wrong with the tube itself. It has always been like this but more of a problem now the analogue has gone. It's a bit hard watching F1 races when you can't tell the colour of the cars!! Help!!

How are you viewing your TV?

How is the source connected is it composite by that I mean is it connected by separate leads marked Red Blue And Green? if So check these leads and make sure that they are seated properly into the correct slots.

As far as I am aware it is a normal co-ax cable. As I said, it worked fine with analogue but has never given a proper colour picture with digital (freeview). Works fine when we connect the PS2/3 into it to play games or watch a DVD so the TV tube is fine.
