Lcd tv picture wavy, black and white

Our LCD tv picture suddenly lost colour and is black and white...also the image is wavy and incomprehensible. Of course our warranty just expired and Dell won't help us. We called another Dell helpline and have left several messages but they won't call us back! We have checked all the settings and cable connections we can think of, including the factory reset. Can anyone offer any insight?? thanks

There is a Video problem with my Samsung LCD. The sound is clear but Colour Balance Setting is disturb. The Colour is mixing with each other. Can You tell me the procedure for My TV Setting?

Before you set up try a reset

Resetting The Picture And Sound To The Factory Settings
as far as advanced settings are concerned, set the contrast backlight and brightness so you can see the best blacks without it looking too milky, the best whites so you can discern the whites and they aren't clipped, then look at colour balance if it looks wrong when you turn the colour off.

I have a Toshiba Regza 32lv 703G lcd tv. I switched it on and I have lost my colour. It only displays in black and white although the menu screen is till displaying in colour. Kindly advise. Thanks!

It is pretty much junk, sorry to say it but your picture tube went out and it is cheaper to buy a new t.v. My grandpa use to fix them for us for free but he passed:( If you call some where see how much they would charge for a picture tube, I bet it's expensive???

My LG TV has suddenly become darker all across the bottom of the screen (10cm strip) it still has colour but is darker. In left hand corner it is considerably darker and depending on what you are watching...

Hi; your TV has burn screen or comes from one image left on the screen for too long, it can get burned into the screen, making it visible at all times. You can actually eliminate most screen burns with the use of a PC computer and a black and white screen saver. This trick eliminates screen burn after a period of several minutes because the black and white screens flash quickly, removing all traces of color from the screen. This will eventually eliminate any burned images on the LCD screen. you can do it by creating a DVD picture slide with only black and white image. you can use a computer to make DVD picture slide first go to paint brush and draw only white then save as white.jpg. second burn it into nero or other dvd burner third play it to your DVD player connected to you LCD has to be played in full screen let the white image display on your HDTV for several hours or even overnight. It should remove any burned-in images or ghosts. hope this help...............

Component Input 1 & 2 gives black & white picture

You will need to connect all the cables for component to get a colour image.
The component cable has 3 connectors all for video. If you have connected only one cable for video then you will not get colour information. Component needs all 3 to get colour and luminence information. You can use a regular composite cable but you have make sure you match up the colour codes on both sides i.e to TV and to the source. The other two Red and White a separate cable is for Audio.

Black/Green Distortion - Picture Quality - Wharfedale

This is no solution but a point in a probable direction.

A tech guy told me ALL the LCDs they have seen in their repair shop have "swollen" capacitors, this is due to voltage instability. Lowering the internal voltage regulator and replacing the swollen capacitors (which eliminate noise) apparently restores the LCD to new working quality. Without actually "seeing" my problem the tech said that should repair it. I have not tried this yet but eventually will begin that way.

Lg 32lc2r, only showing picture in black and white

Make sure that the color control level is set to the default or 50% to start with. This should be in the Video menu.

The colour for the tuner and for the encoded base-band video uses a circuit area called the colour demodulator. It is possible that this cirucuit area has failed and needs servicing.
