Fully wired SCART




I am having trouble with a SCART connection from my DVD to TV. There is a nasty green wash over everything on SCART+RGB. I cannot adjust individual colour tones on either DVD or TV, only a general 'colour' setting on the TV. Turning off RGB on the DVD menu gets rid of the effect, but I am now presumably loosing potential picture quality.

Some one suggested I might not be using a fully wired SCART. The SCART I am using came from "Homebase!!, cost 10 quid and has a thick cable and gold-plated pins.

Can anyone tell me the symptoms of not having a fully wired SCART. Could this account for the green wash effect?

Thanks Alan

Scart leads sold by DIY stores have been reported before as very poor quality, the brand Masterplug has had severe criticism. However I doubt very much you would get a green wash just due to quality, how green is it, is it a tint of green or *really* green.

If the red signal was missing the picture would look very green.

It could also be a fault with your equipment, I suggest you try another lead, borrow one from something else, if that cures it buy a new lead.



Thanks for that info.

The brand I am using is called'Posiscart', and I think it is fully wired.

Checking on my TV, I have some RGB settings I can tweak (picture position), these are apparently unavailable if the connection is not RGB compatible etc.

It is only a tint of green, and I have subsequently spoken to someone with the same DVD and they are having the same effect. So it looks as though it is the DVD that is at fault!!

Fortunately I have s-video connection on TV and DVD and can use this to get round this problem.

Thanks ALAN
