    here's my problem. while watching a dvd, the picture has a blue hue to it. no other colors whatsoever.

    the tv is a panasonic th-42pz77u and it's hooked up by component cables to a phillips progressive scan dvd player. i've tried adjusting every picture setting on the tv, but that got me nowhere. anyone have a clue as to what i should try next?

    Has the dvd player always been hooked up to the new tv? If it was hooked up to an older tv using composite(yellow) video cable, you need to change the settings in the setup menu for component video and progressive scan. Some dvd players have a setting in the menu where you need to tell the dvd player to output via composite/s-video/component.

    actually the dvd player was hooked up to a much older tv, and i had to use a modulator to view dvds on that tv. thanks for the help, i'll go ahead and try to change the settings.

    Also, just in case....make sure you change the aspect to 16x9 in the menu settings aswell.
