Question about Portable Televisions
I have a sylvania TV, model SRT2232X that will periodically loose color. The TV will work perfectly for long periods than change to shades of green, grey and black. After a period of time will go back to full color? Any idea what could be causing the problem and is it a relatively inexpensive fix?
Thank you in advance,
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, your concern could be any of three (3) possibilities:
Since this involve opening the TV unit and working on the electronics, this would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.
Repair cost would be dependent on how you approach the repair. Parts I expect, would not be that expensive. However, if you avail of the services of a competent repair person, then it would be the service charge that would make the repairs cost more.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Sure. You have a bad chip or two. Is it inexpensive. No. It will probably run at least $200 minimum go have it repaired.
This is what you asked for. Sorry to deliver bad news. If you want to know what chip and why we do have IC Techs who can answer that problem. But, this is no do it yourself poject unless you are very qualified.

You might be having problems with the Video IC, actually the section of
the IC that controls color. I would first check to see if the color
controls are working, I would also suggest checking the color presets and defaults. After trying these controls if the color can not be corrected then troubleshooting
of the circuitry is needed for this I would suggest that you have a
qualified TV technician look at the set and give you an estimate for
I hope this helps,
