Pink Tinted Picture

Posted: 1/31/2008

It has come to our attention that a limited number of BRAVIA® televisions may display a pinkish (pink tinted) picture when connected via HDMI™ to devices such as DVD players or A/V receivers. The pinkish picture may appear under the following circumstances:

  • When powering on the television or the connected device
  • When changing the input source or inserting the HDMI cable while the television and device are powered on

We have determined that this only occurs in a limited number of televisions manufactured before November, 2007.
