Help with Mitsubishi LVP-390U.

I have a Mitsubishi LVP-390U since february and find the

picture tinged with green. I tried to correct it via the

controls (color temperature, color matrix etc..) whithout success. Could the unit be defective?

Thank you for your help.

Please tell me what and how your sources are connected to it....


I have a Philips SACD-1000 (DVD video player and SACD multichannel player) and I use a S-Video connection since the european model doesn't have component (the cable is a 35 feet Bandrigde Profigold - around 30$ here in Europe).

Thank you very much for your attention.
I currently have a Mits x390 and consider the S-Video in as unacceptable. The internal scaler is not very good. I am using a HTPC and the picture is excellent. Using even an inexpensive DVDO will make a huge difference.
Hi leckian,

I will certainly give the HTPC solution (and DVDO) a try.

However, I tried the Mits with a cinematrix (sort of a high performance scaler inside a Sony 7700) and found very little improvement as for the damn green on the image!

Have you ever experienced this specific problem in any of

your setups?

This is my first experience with Mits and I have had unit for one week. The picture with S-Video input was not green it was just lousy scaling. With the HTPC and the Mits I got an immediate gorgeous picture with both the HTPC Video Overlay and the projector set at defaults. There has never been a hint of green. I would think with the cinematrix you have a spectacular picture. I would try testing unit with much shorter lengths of cable and different cables to see if there is any difference. If not I would ask for a replacement from dealer or Mits.

Looks like I have to go for the dealer route, since I tried

also shorter (and more expensive) S-Video cables whitout success.

Thank you for your help anyway.
