Picture problem

I turned on my Sony SXRD today and notice a very strong blue color in the picture. I notice more on peoples faces. The HD channels do not have this but standard def. does. It wasn't like this before I tried to change some connections yesterday. What could cause this??

Component video??

If you are using component video, there are red, blue and green cables (or cable ends) which would correspond to the same colors on the output from your HD cable and the input on your TV, if these cables get mixed up in their connection, or not plugged in all the way, it is possible for your picture to have issues like you describe. There could also be set up problems, your TV may have more than one setting for the input you are using, and it could be looking for the wrong type of signal at that port.
Just a couple of suggestions.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
