This usually happens if the send signal eg s video and the tv set are set up to receive something different eg RGB

Get him to check that the send and receive are the same.

hi anskyber thanks for the reply where should he check it is a tv/dvd combi

Ah yes sorry, I should have spotted that.

In that case there are sometimes in the video menu of the set (or under picture) the setting to display in Band W so it may be worth checking.

It can happen when trying to playback NTSC US DVDs. Or just by accidentally changing the RGB setting for colour mode.

This has happened to me quite often...its usual cause is that the connections at the back of the machine have come loose..take and then put them back..
