Customer Question

Watching the football & the picture is a shade of blue n green. And a bit fussy

Hello, I'm TV Tech1 and I'll be working with you to identify and help you resolve your problem.


Component cables -- If one cable is "slightly unplugged" the whole picture could be Off-color. Is this the cable type you use on your Virgin box to deliver the picture to your TV set??


How about SCART ? That cable separates the color, and you could have a bad wire on your Scart causing bad color.

Expert:  TV-Tech1 replied 4 years ago.

Which type of cable are you using on your Virgin box? Component or Scart?


If it's Component....even though the cable LOOKS connected, give each plug a "PUSH in" on both ends. I've had some that look connected, but after reseating the connectors, they work correctly.


On SCART...I usually try another Scart cable that I know works correctly. That's about the only way to know if a scart cable has a broken wire in it or not.


If you have any other equipment connected to your TV set, like a DVD player or game, I like to see how the picture looks on those units, so I know if the TV is bad, or one of the cables, or the problem is actually in the Virgin box or not.
