VPL-VW50 and PS3 HDMI - Very Yellow Tint

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I finally took the plunge and bought a VPL-VW50 to replace my old CRT based RPTV. Everything is great, except that when I hook my PS3 up to it via HDMI (using a 25' Bluejeans cable), everything has a very noticable yellow tint to it, almost like the whitest whites are going yellow. I've tried 3 different cables and both HDMI inputs on the Pearl, but nothing seems to help. When I output via component, the image looks great. I also tried both HDMI on the Pearl with my Direct TV DVR and it looks perfect. I've tried a factory reset on the PS3, but no change. I have not done a factory reset on the Pearl, but it was in use as a demo model at a local high end installer and doesn't appear to have had many, if any changes done to it. Not sure this would help as every other input on the Pearl looks perfect.

I've been all through the menu on the Pearl as well as the settings on the PS3, but nothing seems to have any impact. Is this a common thing or am I looking at a possibly defective PS3?

Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer!

Your going to have to try the PS3 on a different display. These are games with the tint? SD-DVD? Blu-ray? All of the above?

If Blu-ray does it? I'd ask this in the Blu-ray player section on these forums.

Are you watching a Jerry Bruckheimer movie?

It's an issue on everything, even the front end menu. I can't believe I didn't think of trying the PS3 on another display, so I did that last night and have the same behavior on an LCD RPTV. Guess there's something out of whack with my PS3 and not the projector.

Lol!! No, I wish it were as simple as that!

yep.. I'd say your PS3 has an issue. Could be a setting, but you would get much better response in a PS3 specifc thread in the game or blu-ray player forums.

I say could be a setting because there are so many involved with the PS3 and I'm not a gamer so I never went beyond it playing a Blu-ray disk well.
