Hi all. I have connected my PS4 to an older Samsung TV with the model UA46ES8000. It is nearly 10 years old or so and the backlight is flickering. When I play Ghost of Tsushima on it I think the colors are not rendering correctly sometimes.
I have attached a sample video here. You can see the grass' and armor's colors are weird especially when I rotate the camera. I have tried changing to three different cables with no effect. Of course there is the possibility that the TV is somewhat broken, but I would like to rule out all possibilities. My observations:
The backlight of the TV is flickering as well, but I do not think this is related to the colors in the game.
This only happens for in-game rendering, not for cutscenes.
I can watch Netflix and other videos on this TV just fine, albeit the backlight is still flickering. But no problems with colors.
I have tried this PS4 unit and the cables on another TV and there is no problem.
I have tried changing the unit's Video Output settings like Resolution, RGB color, etc., to no effect.
Referring to observations #2 and #3, I think this is a 3D real time rendering because it doesn't happen with regular videos or cutscenes.
Appreciate if anyone can give me any tips or solutions. Thanks!
