The following represents a possible solution to this issue, check if the movie colors are displayed correctly after completing each suggestion.

  • Ensure the HDMI® cable is securely connected to the camcorder.
  • Ensure the other end of the HDMI cable is connected securely to the HDMI input on the TV, or Audio/Video (A/V) receiver if one is being used.
  • If the issue is not resolved, try connecting the HDMI cable to a different HDMI input - if available.

    NOTE: If the issue is resolved using a different HDMI input, then the previous HDMI input may be faulty.

  • If the camcorder is connected to an A/V receiver, try connecting it directly to the TV instead.
