Re: Color

Have you tried to hook up a DVD player or any other source? If so does the color come back? If not then I recommend you call for warranty service if the set is in warranty, sounds like the vidoe processors are bad on the main board

Color problems vizio lcd hdtv

If your tv has a custom settings area, first turn all color down on set so picture looks black and white. Now in color settings look for red blue and green color bars. Use the bars until the picture looks as true to black and white as possible. Also, try changing color temp.

I just bought a Westinghouse LED TV. When I hooked up my dual DVD/Video combo the picture is black and white. What did I hook up wrong??

It sounds like you may have connected the dvd/video combo to the wrong spot on the television. The yellow wire cannot be placed into the green hole. You'll get a picture but it will be in black and white. You can only connect these yellow, red, and white composite wires to a component input spot on this television in order to get a color picture.

(you have to have all three hooked up plus 2 audio cables ..
