Sorry if this is in the wrong thread, but when I use my Sanyo projector through its VGA input, it's a great, normal picture. However, when I try to use it via the component inputs, for xbox or playstation, it has a green tint. I've gone into settings & tried everything, but can't figure out the problem.

Thanks!

Just realized you are using multiple source devices. I'd say bad port. Could be a loose connection on one of the component cables.

I should have mentioned this in my original post: I've tried using the component inputs with 2 separate xbox systems and 2 separate n64 systems, and they all have the green tint. I also bought a component to VGA adapter, and we still have the green tint. Yet, when I use a VGA cable to connect to my laptop, it works fine.

N64 is composite, FYI.

Component is different.

Well if you plug composite into component, depending on the arrangement of cables, you end up with a green picture.

Make sure you are plugging component r g b cables into component plugs.

First, check your cables. Component is usually Y`CrCb, meaning luminance, red and blue, the green is derived from those. If your cable is not working correctly, you can get a green tint. Aside from that, the other common issue is to have your display set to RGB over component instead of Y`CrCb. Because RGB expects all inputs to discreetly give each color (red, green, blue) a Y`CrCb signal interpreted as RGB will have a green tint (the luminance signal is interpreted as green).
