Had a problem almost from day one since
I bought my Panasonic RP91.

Color fluctuations.

Occasionally, the picture would turn a
totally different hue for a few seconds
and then revert back to standard play.

Are there any known bugs with the Panasonic
RP91?

Ron, I have not read about this problem with the 'RP91 before, but something obviously isn't right. Have you tried switching video cables? It's worth a try. Also, how long a cable or cables are you using? Finally, are you using the composite, S-video, or component video output?

I'm with Keith. I've owned one since May of last year and I've never noticed any colour fluctuations at all. Interconnects and connections are definitely the first bet. Power would possibly be my next look see.

Along with Keith's questions, are you running it through your receiver?

This sounds similar to a problem I was having with my old Apex player. One of the video connections was loose inside the player. I didn't bother fixing it, I just switch to a different set of Video Outputs.

But the problem you are mentioning sounds like you have it connected via the component outputs and one of the three connections is not working correctly/consistantly, this would explain the hue change.

You may want to test it using Composite or S video, I bet it will work flawlessly if what I mentioned was the problem.
If its no longer under warranty, you may want to open the player to see if everything looks ok and is connected tighty. I once fixed an Oritron with a power problem just by replugging a loose wire into its power box.

The key point to check would be the wire connected to the output jack itself inside the player. It could become loose just by plugging and unplugging your cables.
