    When I watch any source on my BD808s there now appears to be a green tinge around objects wherthere is a big brightness contrast e.g. a person's head against a light sky. The tinge is quite pronounced. Any ideas what this means, and how I might remedy it?

    Thanks,

    Colin

    In the absence of other replies yet, this sounds to me like the phosphor on the Green tube is saturating.

    This shows itself as a green 'smear' to the side of a highlight.

    If so, it should disappear as you reduce Contrast on the remote. It's probably an indication that the tubes are getting on a bit or that there is an internal adjustment needed. The Green appears first because it is generating most of the light and therefore is driven hardest.

    If it is just a slight green halo evenly around objects it may be that focus is a little out.

    Hopefully someone with more knowledge on these units will chip in soon (I think Roland may be incommunicado at the moment?)

    Thanks Richard,

    I'd hoped it was maybe something I could adjust to make it go away...

    Now I feel really stupid - the "green tinge" was a result of my 8 month old son getting his sticky hands on the remote - the contrast was way, way up which resulted in the described green tinge. When I reset the the brightness/contrast settings it all went away :blush:
