Question about Emerson EWC27T3 27 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

Picture color hue problem

In all functions the picture quality suddenly went bad. The picture is very weak and the colors that do show look flourescent. Especially the reds, greens and blues. Going from DVD's to VHS tapes to tuning into a station has no effect on the color problem. We attempted to fix the problem using the degausing technique described in the manual to no effect. The problem first started when I plugged in our sony digital camera and went to the AUX mode. The camera's pictures would not show up. Strange patterns emerged on screen. I then went to another Emerson unit, our EWC19T3, and the pictures came in nicely.

Re: Picture color hue problem

By description it seems your set lost what is known as luminance and is processing only the color information,there is really no easy way to repair this problem without being involved in measuring some voltages and checking some components with a volt meter,there is a video processing IC and some of its functions are to process the video from all sources,an squematic is needed to check and follow the video signal,you can get the service manual at and the cost should be around 20.00 dollars if you downloaded it.If you are familiar with tv service you now have a place to check but if you are not too familiar and because the nature of the problem you should seek the assistance from a servicer.Let Us know how it goes and if you need more information.

Why my salora CRT TV SC2133 is not displaying any color?

Try an external AV input and see if you have color.

Other than that, without the sams for that unit, you are hit and miss.

Also, you may want to check the power supply for Bad caps.

Picture is really dark. I can see outlines of picture, but no color. I turned up brightness all the way.

Hi, Did the TV go darker gradually or did it happen all of a sudden? Sounds like the tube went!

The t/v screen suddenly turned green. the picture is clear but green/no color

Good day! the problem you have posted indicates that the 2 color cathode of your tv is not functioning, it's either that the driver transistor of the red and blue cathode is defective or the crt socket. or maybe the solder point in the crt board needs resoldering. check for some loose connections.

During a storm, electricity went off and when electricity came on again I lost the color on my tv


This means absolutely no color - equivalent to a black and white picture. Not even a hint of color.

First, confirm that the source is actually in color - try another channel or input device.

Next, check the settings of the color control - it may have accidentally been turned down. If your TV has some kind of automatic picture mode, try turning if off and adjusting the color control. Try adjusting fine tuning if you have such a control and the problem is with a broadcast or cable transmission.

At this point with a confirmed color signal source, there is a problem with the chroma circuitry.

Note that to the average person, the obvious question becomes: is my color picture tube bad? The answer is a definitive NO. It is virtually impossible for a defective CRT to cause a total loss of color. A defective CRT can cause a lack of a primary color - R, G, or, B or a short between two colors which will mess up the color but is not likely to result in a black and white picture.

Some possibilities in no particular order:

Weak signal or defect in tuner/IF causing loss of signal strength.

Coler killer set too high (internal control) if it has one.

Defective part around the chroma chip/circuit. Faulty color oscillator.

Bad connections in area of chroma chip/circuit.

Defective chroma chip (don't suspect this first just because it is probably very expensive).

Try prodding the main board around the chroma chip with an insulated tool to see if you can make the color come and go.

I had one set where a .02 resistor decided to open up causing just this problem - perfect BW picture, no color. Another had a coil with a broken wire.

17 yr. old 35" RCA loses color intermittently. Picture & sound ok

Three guns Red Blue and Green in the picture tube of an old CRT set. If one of the guns goes out it effects that color. Sounds like one of the guns inside of the tube is going out, To costly to replace for such an old antilog set that will have to have a convertor box next month anyway.

Toshiba MW27FPX dropped it!

See if you can borrow a TV de-magnetizer (degauss) from a tv shop...if that doesn't purify the color, then the shadow mask inside the picture tube is bad = no repair unless CRT is replaced
and that would cost more than a new TV ! ...................T.

No color, only black and white

There are no bulbs inside this set to replace. This TV set is all solid state. That means it uses transistors and IC's to work. If the color is not there you could have a bad tuner assembly in this TV set and to replace that would cost you more then the TV set is worth. Sorry. Good Luck
