ok all unplugged and replugged
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
i have some blue very bright blue, no reds

OK, how the satellite box connected to TV?

The choices are:
1- Component cables: 5 wires between the tv and the device, these are color coded on the end and have a green, a blue, a red, a white, and another red cable.
2- Composite cables: 3 wires between the tv and the device, these are color coded on the end and have a yellow, a white, and a red.
3- HDMI: 1 wire between the tv and the device, this is a single wire and looks like a computer plug on each end, similar to a large USB connector.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
tv is on the wall

OK, can you please connect another video source such as DVD/Bluray player to TV, pull the HDMI from satellite box and hook it into bluray player as a test to see if TV shows colors?

This is odd, do you get same issue on all HDMI inputs?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
only imput is dvd and tv

I guess I wasn't clear in my previous info request, have you tried other HDMI inputs of TV and get same color problem?

Ask Your Own TV Question

It needs to connect DVD player into any other free HDMI input of TV as a test.

Excellent, HDMI cables looks suspected as they tend to go bad/ broken internally. Glad to know TV is fine and back in business. If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask. If you're satisfied, please rate me a 5-star at the top of your page so I can get credit of my work on website.
Thank you.
