Hello all, I'm new here.
Here's my problem - I rewired my fake Dreamcast "RGB" SCART cable to output true RGB. But what's really strange - certain shades of yellow, green, blue and red to some extent have a fluorescent glow(like they are oversaturated; other colors look OK). Is this normal? If not, can I do something to fix it?
The saturation controls on my TV don't work while in RGB mode.
Any info is greatly appreciated.
There may actually be another explaination to this.
Some televisions exibit a problem called "red push" where the reds are oversaturated for example.
I guess the same thing can also happen with other colors.
What the problem may actually be is that tv manufacturers intentionally misadjust tvs so that they will stand out in electronics department of a brightly lit store.
Unfortunately the only way to fix this problem may be to adjust stuff in the "service menu" of your tv.
The service menu is MUCH MUCH more advanced than the regular menu, and you can usually adjust stuff like geometry, color temperature, tilt, rotation, horizontal size, vertical size, horizontal position, vertical position, and many other advanced settings in the service menu.
There's usually a code or a trick to get into the service menu of your tv, and each tv manufacturer usually has a different code or trick.
The code or trick is usually to press several different buttons on the remote in a certain sequence and in a certain amount of time.
It's like a combination/password to get into the service menu.
Now changing the values in the service menu can mess up your tv if you're not careful.
The first thing you should do before making any adjustments is that you should write down what all the original factory values for each setting in the service menu was before you make changes to any setting in the service menu.
The best thing to properly calibrate any display is an professional ISF calibration which usually costs several hundred dollars.
Pro ISF techs have very advanced equipment that they use to test and adjust your display and they make many very advanced adjustments in the service menu of your display.
