The tv on;y shows a small pip window in color if it is a large picture the picture is in black and white how to fix?


Whatever input video signal you're using, PIP should be in color. What are you using out of your dvd for the second video input source, composite or component? Composite you should always have color, Component, if you have a bad red or blue, and just the green is working, you will get black and white. The green is the luminence signal.

Rca big sreen went black and white menue is still in color


Try using one of the other video input options, like AV inputs. If still have black and white picture, then the color processor is having issues. If now in color, then your tuner has issues detecting the chroma / luminance signal.

If you are using an external digital box, this may be the source of the problem as well. If you still have a VCR, connect the coax from VCR to the coax input on the TV, and play a tape. Tune the tv to channel 3 or 4. If in color, then your set top digital box is faulty.

Samsung DLP TV shows green color where color should be black


This could be your video board going bad where your input cables are connected --OR-- the color wheel going bad. Hard to tell without a photo or reference though. Try swapping the cables first... and listen for any winding or whirring sounds.

Toshiba 50HX81 only showing black and white


I bet it's a DLP TV correct?
This symptom would indicate that the color wheel has flown apart. Which results in a monochrome only image.
Color wheels are expensive and need to be replaced by a qualified service person.

SONY rear projection TV - Whites have started looking "snowy"


This is your Picture tubes getting very weak.( low in emission ) You have three in there and I guarantee they are no longer available so I would start thinking about investing in a new set, but use that one until you can't stand it anymore.

Black and white picture only


The color wheel is not the problem. If the spinning color wheel is impaired in its RPMs it will cause picture distortion, not black and white picture. If the color wheel looses any of its color fins, like if it is broken, there will be a loud vibrating noise inside the tv which you did not mention. Also if the color wheel is broken and doesn't spin, the tv will not start up.

The likely problem is on the digital control board or the power supply and should be referred to a local repair shop for repair.

There is an outside chance that you will receive color if you experiment with using all of the different input ports to see if you can find one that will bring back color.

When I input s-video cable into RCA tv, the screen shows just black & white color, not full color that used to show. I tried to connect my laptop and dvd player with new s-video cable, but it didn't...


Take a flashlight and magnifying glass and look at the S-Video connector on the back of the TV. Check to see that there aren't any pins or other debris stuck in the four holes.

One pair of holes is for the brightness (luma) signal, which gives you the black and white picture, and the other pair of holes is for the color (chroma) signal, which seems to not be functioning.

If there's nothing in the holes, then the internal connection may be flakey. Try gently wiggling the plug on the TV side and see if color returns, even briefly.

Does your TV have other inputs like component YPbPr?

Video input from dvd player shows as black screen w/ squigly color lines


have you tried other devices for input...vcr, or other dvd players to see if it is a problem with the player or with the tv? Check the output setting for the dvd player (1080i etc) and ensure you are connecting to the proper inputs for either analog or digital signals (RCA inputs or RGB).
