    I've got a HD cable for my x-box, it outputs component into a component to VGA convertor (already using the component input on my 434MXE1 and this was cheaper than a switch box), then VGA lead from that to the plasma.

    Most of my games work, but the boot up screen and some games are almost totally "pinked over".
    Could this be a cable fault? There's a few pins missing but remember most games are fine (more than :thumbsup: ).

    New lead already on order, just hoping for some confirmation it might do it :smoke:

    When i had a component cable i hadnt plugged one of the colours in properly and there was a pink tinge to the screen, it was whilst i was watching Casino so tbh didnt really notice it until part way through the film :D . Once plugged in properly the tinge was gone so my guess would be a cable or connection problem.

    could be but on half my games the picture is stunning. I'm beginning to think it might be to do with not all of the games working at 480p, but that's for another forum...

    I'd agree, cable or actual connector problem.

    Check the pins inside your monitor's VGA connector and ensure they are straight and the same length. Also check that the connection is firm and secure. You may even want to wiggle the connectors into your screen and see if you get and image flickering..

    It is very possible there is a short or severance in your VGA cable preventing one or more of the pins not to connect properly.

    In IT terms in can also be 16bit vs 32bit conversion issues, the games your playing.. the pinkish ones aren't copies, or imports , NTSC, etc etc i assume?

    Hope this helps
    Cheers John
