Twice in the last week while I have been watching live TV via my BT TV (YouView) box the colours have gone 'off' showing greens, greys and pinks rather than true colours.
- I have changed the HDMI cable - didn't resolve
- I get the same if I watch a recorded programme via BT TV
- changing channels etc doesn't fix it, nor does going into standby and restart
- Other sources to my TV work fine (direct TV, DVD player)
The only fix I've found is to power down and restart the BT Vision box.
Is this a symptom of the box about to fail perhaps?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Is this a BT TV Youview box or a BT Vision box?
It is a Youview. Sorry if I muddled things with a mention of Vision!
No worries. Vision was discontinued years ago lol...
Try another device in the same input to rule out it being a TV fault and if it still presents the same problem, you'll need to call BT and report the fault. If you have an active BT TV subscription they will replace the box
Thanks - Ive discounted it being a TV fault already I've swapped HDMI and switched input sources..
I'm ex-BT and was around when Vision was launched so the name is engrained in me LOL.
Will report it as a fault, thanks. Of course that will probably mean I'll get a new box and lose all my recordings (again).
One thing I would do to see if it has any impact when the problem occurs is to temporarily change the HDMI display setting ( in the Picture & Sound area of the BT TV box Settings).
Hi, any luck with this, my BT youview Humax DTRT2100 started to do this about the same time as yours in February! Always a Sunday afternoon when watching football. I narrowed it down to occurring when the Sky sports logo appears after the adverts, does a big crackle and the picture goes grey, green and pink! I tried all the same things cables, HDMI ports, ruling them all out. Only thing that fixes it is Off/on reset. Very annoying and weird!
Hi. No I'm living with it until I've watched some recordings in case the result is a new box!
Yes it's always during football and we think during the half time break a ls we're always rushing a box restart before the 2nd half starts.
OK same as us, living with it for now. I will try the maintenance mode reset next, see if it is any quicker, but I don't see how anything can fail in this way! May have to ring BT at some point then.
