Question about Audiovox AVT1498 TV
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
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.
