Question about Philips Magnavox MT2501C 25" TV

Open Question

DVDs Black and White

The TV plays fine on all channels, but DVDs only come in black and white. No inputs I assume means the color streams through the cable connection. Is there anything that can be done when connecting the DVD to the TV that will allow us to watch DVDs in color?

SOURCE: change input source for philips magnavox

use the up/down channel until you get to the input you have connected. You did not say you had a remote so i am using the standard fix for this.

Tv plays cable in black and white but plays dvds in color. What is the issue?

Try changing the channel on the TV to 3. Most cable boxes change everything to channel 3.

I would suggest to you it is not the set if only two channels, perhaps the transmission is in black and white?

Went black and white rca f32648

so far no proper details are available regarding resetting this particular TV ( f32648 ) .... i have checked user manual also

have you tried following things

1 - playing different dvds (dvd player )
2 - changing different channels ( cable tv or antenna )
3 - increasing ( to maximum ) & decreasing ( to minimum ) [in menu ]
contrast colour tint black level sharpness
picture presets auto colur colour warmth
4 - auto channel searching ( cable tv or antenna )

even after these trials if picture is in black & white then it is a hardware problem - since it is a rare problem no details are available about which component might have got deffective ...... only the service engineer who opens & checks your tv can tell the exact deffective component .......... sometimes it can be loose connection ( cracks at soldering joints - hit your TV lightly with your hand on left side or right side or on top - if color comes & goes then it is loose connection problem - all soldering joints should be resoldered by service engineer ) ..... or an IC might have got deffective ......... only after opening & checking your tv mainboard exact deffective component can be identified ......

for nearest RCA service center call 1800 336 1900 ( this number got from your TV's user manual - click this link for your TV's user manual - free down load - RCA F32648 model -

JVC 32" D series TV is suddenly black and white

Wow that's interesting, was there anybody watching your home while you were gone? There is a possibility that someone simply turned down the color level with the color control? Check that first. It's an unusual symptom. With composite video, component video or HDMI it's not usually possible to experience that defect. Since the color (chrominance signal) is usually inseparable from the luminance (black and white signal) I would check the color setting first. Other wise your set has become unable to detect that color signal... I bet it's a setting rather than a defect.

Happy Viewing

Video 4 channel to color from black and white?

There is no option for changing this, is video 4 a component input? maybe the format is wrong (yellow instead of green)?

DVD plugged into red, white and green(Yellow) TV imputs, results

Yeah no color coz its black and white. Color coding commonly yellow wire for video, red and white wire for audio. It should also be from DVD to TV, video out and audio out going to video in and audio in. And switch the TV to play video and the audio inputted. Maybe TV/Video Switch or button.

Hope it helps
