3. HD

4. yes i have the original sony remote


I bet your cable box is connected with Component cables. That's five cables-
Green, Blue, Red for video
White, Red for audio

If one of the three video wires is not connected properly then you can get a discolored picture. Verify the Green, Blue, Red wires are plugged in all the way on the back of the Tv plugs AND the back of the cable box plugs. Just to be sure, one at a time, unplug each cable and plug them back in securely. It's also easy to accidentally mix up the Red video wire with the Red audio wire, so double check that they are correct.

If this doesn't help then reply here to go to the next step. Please remember I am here to provide you with excellent service so if you need more help then REPLY here, otherwise please take a moment to leave a positive rating.
