No Color on my Audiovox AVT-1498

I have an Audiovox AVT-1498 that has no color. The picture is perfect but only in black and white. All the menus and when I do an "autoprogram" the entire screen is in color. A few days ago the picture was in color and after I shut it off it is again only in black and white. I have hooked a VCR and a video game up to the inputs and the picture is still only black and white. What would be an easy fix for this or am I better off to replace. :( Thanks Jim

    No problem buying a replacement, it just has to be the same overall size or smaller. Do you have this information?

That model has a history of bad solder connections in various circuits. I would not be surprised if that is the case with the color circuitry. You may get the color to come and go by slapping the sides of the TV or lifting one corner about 1/2 inch and dropping it. If it does, it is a bad connection and possibly fixable. If no change is noted, it could be a bad semiconductor or capacitor, etc., causing the symptoms. For that size set, it would probably be cheaper to replace with a different brand. Toshiba has a nice 14" model IMO.

How to set perfect color on samsung 48" led smart tv

To achieve true life like colors, the primary colors need to be balanced to produce a perfect black and white picture. Turn the color level on the tv to 0 and tint to middle then look at the picture - does it have a reddish or other "coloration" to it? Then set the individual color levels (if your TV has these settings) of red, blue and green to balance out and get a true black and white picture. After that, bring the color level up slowly until the facial levels are natural - not over driven as seen in most store displays. You may need to use tint control slightly.....
One other way - There is a dvd from Disney called "Wow" that aids in getting your set to optimum display.

Screen is Perfect just Black and White only...No Color

well a dvd player is only going to playback the media it is reading. So if the dvd is a reproduction of a b/w western then b/w is correct but if you play a dvd from the present then it should be in color unless the tv it is connected to is faulty. Try connecting to another tv to see if problem repeats on another tv

My FLEXVISION 13in. color tv/monitor model avt-1498 in my dodge van i just bought will not show the picture only sound. the screen is all black but there is sound. i have the manual right next to me. i...

Mine did the same thing this week. It was caused by the white ribbon cord. The cord got bent over and over as you flip the tv open and broke the wires inside. The cord is soldered directly to the circuit boards on both ends of the unit. I do not think an average joe can fix it because it requires soldering a new cord to the circuit boards on both ends. I am going to buy a new unit for around 200$ and install it.

No picture but have sound

RDD6 - I had the same problem with my AVT-1498. Took it to the repair shop who told me it would cost hundreds to repair. I figured I could find a replacement crt for less but was wrong - they don't make these tv's anymore, and really don't make any 12v crt's anymore period. So I decided on a 15" 12v ready LCD model which fit the hole where the old crt TV use to be. I needed to rig it to hold the LCD bracket but that wasn't too difficult. Then just hooked the wires back up. Good luck with your situation.

Perfect picture on TV, DVD and VCR, but no color means you have selected the wrong color system.Since you are in the UK, make sure that the VCR Color system is also set to PAL. Perhaps it is wrongly set to SECAM?
