SamsungR74 Purple Screen



Apologies if this has already been answered elsewhere but i have a Sammy R74 and last night for the first time sat down to watch a DVD, about 2 mins in the screen started to flicker and display only in hues of purple and blue, anyone know how to cure this? Same DVD played fine using Xbox360 on PC source link.

First thing to do is to check your Scart/Component leads that connect your DVD player to your TV. Make sure they are firmly fitted at both ends. If you are using a Scart lead, pull out each plug and make sure that all of the little pins are in place, sometimes, especially on slightly cheaper leads, they can get pushed back into the Scart plug, so they don`t make proper contact in the Scart socket.
