Samsung LE40M87BDX purple picture


Standard Member
Hi am new to this so please bare with me.

Today my TV started to show a purple tint over the picture and when any black is on the screen this shows as almost solid purple.

It happened after taking the tv down of the wall bracket for the cable engineer to install a new box which had to be setup using a scart cable. I have tried moving the hdmi cables to other ports and removed them all so that only the Ariel cable was in and I still get the same issue. I have played with the settings and this makes little to no difference to the picture.

Any assistance or advice given would be much appreciated as to any remedy i can try.

i have added some pictures of the issue
