Merry Christmas everyone.

Last night my tv screen froze and then went a pink colour.

All the HDMI outputs on the menu are all greyed out and I am unable to select them.

My TV is a Samsung series 6 LE40A656A

Any advice is much appreciated.

The HDMI inputs will be greyed out unless there is equipment plugged into them.
Have you tried unplugging the power and then plugging back in again?

Hi JayCee.

Thanks for replying on Christmas day. I have my av amp plugged into the tv.

I have just unplugged the tv and will let you know what happens.

Ok what I have now is a two tone pink screen. A dark pink at the top with broken lines. The rest of the screen about 90% is a light pale pink.

Hi JayCee.

I've established the problem now. I plugged my Blu-ray straight into the tv and it was fine on all hdmi slots.

The problem is my Sony amp, I changed plugs just to make sure but still a problem.

Now my screen looks like a faulty gfx on a pc.

Reset the amp? First unplug for 10 mins or so, then find the manual and see what it says about a factory reset. Probably a case of holding some combination of buttons while switching the unit on.
