The tv on;y shows a small pip window in color if it is a large picture the picture is in black and white how to fix?

Whatever input video signal you're using, PIP should be in color. What are you using out of your dvd for the second video input source, composite or component? Composite you should always have color, Component, if you have a bad red or blue, and just the green is working, you will get black and white. The green is the luminence signal.

I have a RCA Hd52w59 television that has a blurry red green blue colors on screen and the pics looked like they are caved in .any help ?

RED BLUE and Green are the component colors. If you are using component cables, which most likely you are, check to see if the Green has come unplugged. Try switching the cabls to a different input. Actually, if you get the same problem on another input that say....your DVD player is hooked to, you have a bad tv. If not, try to isolate it to the simplest thing first e.g. cables, input source, etc. Please don't forget to rate this solution for me.

Model # PTH5498 Red and Green horizontal lines show up after the set has been on for a little while. They don't stay but come and go

If it is being fed by a component video source you could have a loose connection. Component sends analog video signals via Red Green and Blue cable. If the blue cable is loose then you will generally get a redish or greenish looking picture. If the cable isn't the problem try using a different input such as the S video input. If this still doesn't fix the problem then you could have a problem with one of the lamps most likely the blue. Hope this isn't the case for you though.

Video Connection Issue

Use an HDMI cable! It carries video and sound in high definition which is blu-ray dvd player. Costs about $25.00-40.00.

I strongly doubt it's the lamp assy since you can actually see the blue screen. If the lamp failed, you would not see anything on the screen. This blue screen indicates to me that either the tuner is no longer decoding the signal, in improper input has been selected (ie: input 1 is selected while actual signal is on composite 1), or something of that nature. If you are getting audio then the input is selected properly but the video decoder has failed.

If your cable signal is going through a VCR or DVD, disconnect it from there and go directly to the TV (ie: bypass the VCR/DVD). If your picture comes back, there's some kind of problem with your VCR/DVD player.

If you have multiple inputs, try connecting an input signal to another input (ie: video 1, or aux from a dvd player) and see if you get a picture there. If you do get a picture, the whatever input you're currently using has malfunctioned.

Component Video inputs do not work

I started back in the day of tubes. A family would have one set and it would be a 19" black and white. There are different resolutions now. The components probably do work, but, they don't pass the 480i signal. The satelite converter's analog signal needs to be set to 480p and the DVD needs to be set to progressive if it does have that setting. If the DVD is not a progressive scan DVD, then, the only inputs that it will show on is the analog signal. Some of the dish converters have a switch on the face for changing the resolution. If yours doesn't then put it in an analog source and go to the menu and change it there. Then move it to the component input. Hope this helps.
