No color when a Hailo HDSTB-8000 set top box is connected and tun

I have purchased a Hailo HDSTB-8000 set top box, when installed and tuned I have a clear picture but no color, even when I bring up the menu there is no color in the menu. The TV it is connected to is a Sony KV-K29SN21 Trinitron Color TV KiRARA BASSO.

I sent the set top box back to the repaires and they could not find a fault, they loaded the upgade soft wear for it and retuned the set top box. Again I connected it too the TV and tuned it in but still no color.

Can you help me?

Cheers Robert

I just did a factory reset this morning and I had the same problem until I realised that you have to use the "Output" button to get the Video Outputs to DVI Digital (see page 17 of the manual), if that's what your connection is, then I could select "menu" and do a channel search. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Problem retuning Sagem PVR6240T set top box

Apparently you can get your software updated by sending your Sagem PVR 62** to their offices in Chertsey, Surrey. I am about to do that. This is as a result of getting an answer from Sagem as follows:-

"Following the impact of the national retune on Wednesday 31/09/2009, Sagem have decided to offer an additional software update for their old PVR62xx range in the UK. However, since Sagem have to cover the costs for the implementation of an unscheduled update, customers will be charged £23 for their update which will be performed in our head office in Chertsey / Surrey. Please complete this form and return it to _service.uk@sagemcom.com"

Hope this helps.

How to get full picture on my tv?


First, ensure your tv is using the highest resolution possible (Usually 1080 for flat screens) by using an HDMI cable from the receiver to the television, and that you are on the correct input. Second, ensure your tv is not sizing the video by using the 'picture size' or 'aspect' or 'ratio' key on the remote that came with your tv (Not your DISH remote). Third, tune your DISH receiver (with your DISH remote) to an HD channel (for VIP model receivers, when you tune the channel to an HD channel, an opaque white 'HD' appears insude the blue box at the top of the screen). Fourth, hit the star key on the remote, while watching the screen. On the right hand side, near the top, it will cycle as you hit repeatedly the star key, the style of screen widening. Hit the key as often as you need to make the screen appear the way you want it to. The receiver will remember your setting for all HD channels. When finished with the HD channel, tune your receiver (with your DISH remote) to a SD channel (any channel in the guide that does not have the HD icon). Repeat the fourth step.

For Hopper/Joey family receivers, hit menu, settings, screen size. Follow the instructions to resize your screen to match your preference. When finished, repeat step four above on each an HD and a SD channel.

Installed a new set top box last night and all the channels are black and white - no colour at all - confused!!

Check your cables between the receiver and your TV to make sure the colors match. If you are using a component cable (green, blue, red, white, red), not matching colors at both ends will give you what appears to be a black and white picture. I hope this helps.

I have a aiko set top box receiver, installed, we have pictiue, sound but no colour only black and white, what wrong?


Hiya Margy,
I know your query was 6 months ago,but I had a similar problem with connecting an Aiko SD set top box to our second older tv set & after 3 months only recently found the solution!
Our problem? When connected the tv picture went green! Nobody,including Tandy staff,knew what to do! (We also have an Aiko STB connected to our newer tv and it worked fine from day one.)
Anyway,it took 3 months but I finally worked it out.
Our problem was settings on the TV,NOT the STB.
Go to your TV's COLOR settings,pick a setting called 'COLOR SYSTEM' and change from 'ntsc' or 'pal'(depending on what country you're in) to AUTO.
It isn't enough to change the tv system on the STB's SETUP menu,or to change it on the TV's SYSTEM settings,you have to change it in the TV's COLOUR settings as well. Change colour system to 'auto' and see if that helps.(And of course,change all system settings on both the tv & the STB to AUTO or the right system for your country if you haven't done so) Hope this helps! Good luck!

Freeview box (Duraband)


Hi Sandra , it could be poor signal ,worth trying another box on your aerial , also the aerial lead could cause this even the one from the wall plate to the Freeview box ,if your analogue picture is snowy then I would suspect the aerial have you looked for a signal strength meter in the menu , might show how good the signal is
hope this helps
cheers John
