The color on my HDTV is fine when I am watcing cable TV programing. But, when I play a DVD, the color displayed is awful. I have tryed several DVD's and the color is not true.

How can I adjust the color while playing DVD's?

Try different connections...

and if all behave the same then maybe the problem is the dvd player itself. I suspect it's either the cable/s or connector/s.

Thank you. I'll check the cable hookups. Maybe I made a mistake.

I had the same problem when I hooked up a new HDTV recently.
After reading all the Manuals, I found the problem.
My DVD player (Samsung) has a Setup menu that includes "Display Setup". It's where you choose the Aspect, Still Mode, Brightness and Video Output. Video Output has options for the way you have connected the DVD to the TV. I corrected mine and the DVD picture went from deep pink to normal colors.
Good luck!
