Question about RCA 27V530T 27" TV

4 Answers

No color The TV when turned on one day suddenly was without color. It has a good black & white picture. The color did not gradually go away, it just wasn't there. The tv is only about 3 years old. Please recommend what can be the problem and hopefully repair it at home. On some of the websites I visited it referred to the Chroma chip/circuit loose or maybe bad. Please describe what this part looks like so I can investigate it. If you have a schematic for this model that would be helpful. Thanks Diane Peel

    Same problem, all of a sudden no color but good B&W pic. DVD plays movies in color, but all channels in B&W only. Not a Directv problem, as they were out today.

A trouble in any of the following circuits may cause the symptom: bandpass amplifier, ACC, color killer, 3.58 Mhz oscillator, 3.58 Mhz output, burst gate and burst amplifier. but as techman told you, if you are not inclined in this kind of job, better bring it to a qualified tv technician.

Diane, so sorry to burst your bubble doll but this is not a place for you to even consider experimenting with. Do you know how to read a schematic? Do you know what a burst amp is or how its generated? Really you should not attempt to repair a TV set unless you understand how the color or how the other circuits work. Do you know how the croma Oscilator and the burst circuit works together in the video to produce color? Please unless you can answer all of the abouve , seek out a pro to assist you in this repair as I said many times before, a solid state TV set has no user serviceable parts inside them.

Poor viewing quality

By poor color quality, do you mean that if you turn the color control all the way down, the black and white picture is more like black and red, green or blue - or do you have a good black and white image? If the B&W image is good, and the TV is an old (8+ years) one, maybe the mirror inside the set needs a good cleaning - especially if there are smokers in the room. If you have a B&W picture that is tinted, then you may have to go into a service menu to adjust it back to a better picture. Hard to guess the problem without more specific description of symptoms.

Problem with the Toshiba 50H13 50 in. Rear Projection Television. Green tint

The tubes have aged and the colour balance between the tubes has shifted. You will need to redo it using a black/white test image: first the black (the cutoff point), then the white (the gain) on each tube - always start with the green colour. This is done on the final video amplifier of each tube by adjusting the corresponding semiadjustable resistors.

Having problem with getting the color and contrast right?

Good Day;
Turn your color down all the way, do you get a good Black and White picture with good black, white and grays? If not your picture tube may be going bad. It can be adjusted sometimes to get a 'better' picture.
If picture is a good B&W; adjust britness level: 50% > contast: > 90/95 % >color: 50%.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

The first thing you need to do is to take away the color completely, then you adjust the hue until you get the picture looking like a black & white tv, like the old shows that were broadcast in black & white.
Then you can gradually add the color. And thats it your done!

No color

If the settings are correct and the signal is good but there is no color, it can only be one of 2 things - the CXA jungle IC and the chroma crystal next to it. If you have never replaced small parts on PC boards then have a qualified tech handle it for you.
