    All of a sudden, my HDTV which i have hooked up to my media pc has a blue tint to it. One day it was fine, the next, i turned it on to watch a tv show, and it's all blue. Tried everything, new cable, new dvi to vga converter, even hooked up the trusty MBP, and still it has a tint. Now i can adjust the blue gamma on my video card, but it doesn't go low enough to get rid of all of it. HELP ME PLEASE

    Is it a plasma? One of the big HD plasma's at my school broke and everything that was supposed to be black was kind of red. I think they wound up having to send it back.

    Go in to your settings and make sure your color temperature/saturation/etc is all set up correctly.

    Wellll

    One thing that happened to me when I was setting up a mac mini for my little brother was that I didnt plug the DVI to VGA adapter in ALL the way when hooking it up. This led me to messing with settings and what-not for almost 15 minutes until I realized the adapter wasnt plugged all the way in! Maybe you're VGA input is out of place or something? I bet if you plugged in your xbox with RCA cables it would be just fine. It is definitely something with the input for VGA though.

    I know it is the vga connection, i'm just wondering if it could be a loose pin or something that a quite knowledgable person could fix. every other connection works fine, but i would prefer to not look at my screen all blue.
