When I turn on the TV at times the screen has a pink tint. If I unplug the HDMI cable and replug it, the pink is gone. In wall cables and remote equipment closet prevents easy and typical elimination testing... Thoughts on whether this is usually caused by TV, cable, or AVR??


Config: (remote equipment closet)

Avr Receiver - Denon 3311

Multiple input devices (happens on all of them)

Toshiba LCD TV (few years old)

40 ft Blue Jean cable (metal pin shield partially loose)

I don't see this being caused by your cable service, unplug all inputs a power tv up and see what happens. You may need to connect an antenna just so you have some type of signal being imput.

I'm having the same problem with my Samsung LCD TV. It goes away if I unplug the HDMI cable and plug it back in. Please post if you figure out what's causing it. I thought it might be the cable, but you're using a different cable so that must not be the issue.

I have the exact same problem with my brand new Samsung LCD HDMI TV. If I unplug the HDMI cable for a second and plug it back in, everything is fine until I turn it off then try turning it on again. I've already switched out my cable box, the cables and even exchanged the TV for another new one...same problem! Anyone find the solution?

Interesting. I used to get that on an old plasma (not used much any more) when switching from my HTPC to Blu-Ray standalone. Both hooked up via HDMI directly to the TV. And I mean *really* pink. Turning the TV off and back on would fix it.


The color space of the HTPC video was set to 4-4-4 full RGB; the Sony Blu-Ray player to YCbCr 4-2-2, IIRC. When I reset the standalone output to 4-4-4 RGB, the problem never recurred. So I assumed the TV was iffy when changing color space.


Maybe this has nothing to do with others' problems, or maybe it does. But it just might be a clue.
