Re: black and white picture on the JVC TH-505

If you hold the VFP button while a movie is on, you will get a small box on the corner that shows your color. My default color also turned black and white. I just moved over to a user1 color setting (push the right arrow on your remote), and it allows to the change the colors. You might be able to put the colors to come out through here. Hope this helps.

Yes you should go to VFP button but not only move into user 1 or 2 but playing enter such you put on 0: gamma, brightness, contrast, saturation, tint and sharpness, then you adjust at your preference!!!! It worked for me after 3 hour try to fix it, beginning with the below advice.

Check your connection if you had tampered with it before it turn black and white.if the connections is okay then the tv is having problem in the color circuit take it to a tech for repairs.goodluck.

I had this problem when I first got the JVC TH-505 and the picture was black and white. It turned out that I had the cables hooked up improperly.

Sounds like have your component video (RED GREEN BLUE) wires crossed in some way... match them out from the player and into the TV one by one.

If you're using component video cables from the DVD player to the receiver, remove and reconnect them.

Black and white and scrambled picture of jvc th-m505

I know you hate to hear this but most JVC parts are propitiatory

and they wouldn't sell you the part .

Most of the parts are surface mounted so for the amateur solderer

its out of the question.

You can find this receiver for about the same or less than you can have it fixed .

No color picture

Have you looked at the menu to see if it is an international system? If you have more picture posibilities than NTSC you may need to make that selection. Terry
