Journeyman III

Radeon R7 200 series wrong colors displayed.


It looks like there's a fault in my video card.

Everything that should be yellow is now green. (Try watching an all green Simpsons cast.)

I have tried different screens, different episodes of the Simpsons, different ways of looking at anything yellow and seeing green instead.

I took a screen shot of the problem an emailed it to my mobile phone. Much to my surprise, the picture was still green. 

This tells me it's not just displaying yellow as green but it's generating (replacing) the color yellow as green.

Hopefully, there is a cheap and simple fix.

Which gpu are you using ? Are your drivers updated ? 
If you are on amd radeon software , go to settings , Display and if custom color is enabled disable it or if it aint enable it and change the hue 

that should work


Thanks for taking the time to offer a suggestion, much apricated. 

In regards to what gpu, I hope the following might provide the answer.

I have tried updating drivers vai Windows update and by going to the AM site. They both believe that my drivers are up to date. (And as this issue is new, maybe there was a driver problem with the most recent update? How do I roll back to an earlier video update?)

Changing the hue did have an effect. The color yellow is now a greeny gollden color. (But on the image below, it's still mainly green.)


Is it time to replace this card?
