post #61 of 1473
Has anyone tried HDMI at the higher resolution and if so, does it also exibit the green tint? my HDMI doesnt work with my Direct TV but thats a whole other issue.
post #62 of 1473
str8ace - i was planning on trying it with my Upscaling DVD player (currently connected to the component, but as such, will only output at 480p) as soon as i can get the cable. Not sure when that might be though, sorry.

str8ace I have not tried straight HDMI to HDMI but I bought a HDMI to DVI cable to hook up my laptop to my TV over HDMI it works fine but the picture was inferior to my PC which is connected via regular VGA cable. They both have good graphics cards my PC has an ATI X1300 and laptop has a Nvidia Geforce 6600 go.

those of you who have been able to get in contact with Olevia TSR... did they call you back after an email or were you able to call them? The tech support numbers seems to ring with no one on the other line ever picking up. How do you get in touch with them? They have not responded to any of my emails.

Well no green tint (Firmware A33-5.A19.A10.A01.A21) Hooked to my Directv H20-100 Via Component & HDMI Component is Fine HDMI won't lock signal above 480p and if I turn the tv off and back on it revertys my H20 to 480p even if it is set for 720/1080. Component is fine from my HD-DVD but have to still try HDMI from the HD-DVD......ohh Glitches

/Update HD-DVD is fine over HDMI in 720/1080 must be a glitch between the Sat box & the TV

I have the same issue with my H20-100 DTV box on 720/1080 resolution where signal will come in and out. Apprently DTV is to issue a fix but they have said that for over 3 months.

So they acknowledged it's in the connection between these two. ok I will just run component until a fix comes out this one is going in the home office as a third HD set anyway

not neccessarily... from what i understand, manufacturers do not adopt the same HDMI standards as there are different versions. So no one is really at fault. I have a Samsung 4095D LCD as my primary set and can't get DTV over HDMI to work on that set as well. Supposedly, the industry is to adopt a new standard next year and at that time, hopefully all this will work...and they will issue some fixes.

Ok got ya now....

At least it's not a bad part that I have to return (I hate having to deal with returns)
post #71 of 1473
I registered on this forum so someone would be able to give me a solution to my problem, but in the end i ended up solving (well isolating) others' problem. Well this will be my last post and after this i am giving up.

If there is anyone and i mean anyone out there who owns a ps2 and is able to display their image full screen without any black edges or letter box please let me know what your TV and/or PS2 settings are.

Thank You

That is a nice picture there. I must say, with a good antenna, the HD OTA looks surprisingly nice as well. My TV grabs 16 digital channels (and 16 analog, but those are of such low quality, its not funny), and does an amazing job of displaying the channels in HD (when they are in HD).

I will say, the set does a bit better job when the source is 720P as compared to 1080i (but that shouldn't be a huge surprise). Fox here broadcasts at 720P, and it looks just phenomenal.

Unfortunately, the otherwise awesome display is why the green tint issue is just so damned disappointing. I still think there are too many people reporting issues for it to be a bad motherboard (if it is that, then they have some SERIOUS QA issues).

The black bars/edges are there by default. Example: Play games like FFXII or Resident Evil 4 on a standard definition TV, you will still get the black edges. It is part of the image being outputted by the PS2.

The best you could do is Full Screen it and set Cropping to On to cutoff some of the black edges.

Indeed - also, there is a screen adjust setting menu in the system menu, and that might be worth a shot as well.

It seemed fishy to me that it would be motherboard. Because it seems a lot of people are having the same problem. If it is the motherboard... the amount of problems seems unacceptable. But, what can you do?

I think I'd rather it was a motherboard problem for a few sets... than just the standard way the tv looks.
post #77 of 1473
Thanx guys i figured that out when i got home, plugged in my dvd player and it was full screen. That kinda sux does'nt it? PS2 not being able to output a full picture.

That is my thinking as well. There are too many users (just here, not to mention how many others there may be) showing the problem for it to be a failure.

Also, their tech support is just... gone. If you call the number, hit 2 two (Tech Support -> LCD Support), it will just ring and ring; perhaps there were already enough people calling that they are looking into it, and just can't answer phones? Who knows....

my firmware is A33-5.A19.A10.A01.A21

here are pics with and without the tint -when tinted, resolution is at 1080i, when not, 480p

Ewwwwwww... I can't help but think of glostbusters... "I've been slimed"
post #81 of 1473
2 more pics with lights off to prevent the rainbow ring

if you call and just hold...for 20-40 minutes, you will get through... you'll have to sit through the french/european voice that comes on, hold music, silent (for a long time) then - finally a another ring and a voice comes on.

conversation goes something like this
me: i have 3 232v that exhibit a green tint when i use any resolution above 480p via component cables
tech guy: that is strange, that's the first i've heard of it
me: (thinking this is complete BS) i have a samsung LCD and its fine with component cables on 720/1080i
tech guy: what kind of signal are you feeding it
me: HD with Direct TV H20-100 receiver
tech guy: we have an H20-100 here...we'll send your case to product managment/research and get back to you...
me: (thinking i probably will not hear back)

In theory, yes... but there appear to have already been correlation between green tint and set failure.

Yes, my set has failed... and I'm waiting for the replacement to be shipped to me.
post #85 of 1473
Well, i can try again. I figure, the more they hear about this, the more chance we have of getting a real answer and fix. Not to mention, i won't just fold and let them pass me of like this; if i need to, i will reference this thread..

Sounds like my conversation earlier, I especially like the part where he says it's the first he has heard about the green tint. I told him about hooking up an xbox 360 on the tv and on my 22" monitor with component inputs. The monitor worked fine at 720P/1080i. After being on hold a few times he agreed to replace the tv. Then he emailed me a form to fill out and fax back with a copy of my receipt, and they will send a replacement tv. I hope the new tv works.

i too bought this tv on black friday at CC..and i have the same green tint problem.. i plug it up to my xbox360 using the component cables and it looks fine in 480. but when i put it on 720 or 1080 i get the same horrible green tint.
post #88 of 1473
if anyone figures out how to fix this please let me know.. or how about you got it exchanged if you had to
post #89 of 1473
does this mean, we have to pay for shipping to send the defective tv back?

If you got it at CC, you should be able to just take it to them, tell them the issue, and tell them you would just like an exchange, rather than return (assuming that is what you want).
