Purple has replaced blue color on HDMI/DVI-connected Samsung HDTV

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
All of a sudden, a deep purple has replaced that blue color on my Samsung HDTV. I am running the cable through my AVR 1912. I have been using AVR 1912 with Samsung HDTV for two years without any issues related to TV picture color. Otherwise, TV image is clean and clear....no lines; no fuzzy image; just very purple....I am perplexed. I tested the TV by bypassing the HDMI cable into the AVR 1912 and viewing TV image straight from cable box...no color problems whatsoever. I have updated my firmware as of yesterday. I have changed HDMI input ports. I have checked TV image using other inputs (APPLE TV and DVD) with same purple problem. I have completed a factory reset as well as reset microprocessor. How can I fix this without driving to Norcross, GA to see Regional Repair Shop? I like purple because I went to ECU, but come on! smile.gif

have you tried replacing the HDMI cable between the AVR and the TV?

Did you update the firmware because this happened, or did this happen after the firmware update.

Thank you for your posting. I updated the firmware after the purple showed up. Today, I replaced the DVI - HDMI cable with same purple color. It is so weird to see a beautiful ocean or sky scene--both are purple. I will change out to another HDTV (small one) to see if that changes anything. I thought it may be the slight aged HDTV (DLP) but the color is fine when I sent the cable directly to the TV and not through the AVR 1912. Any help would be appreciated.

Also try some non-HDMI inputs and outputs (composite, S-video etc) on the AVR to see if the problem is confined to HDMI board or a general video chip fault.
