My Rca 52 inch has lost color But If I set the feature

PIP means the set uses either two tuners or a dual tuner--could be a issue with the tuner. If it has a swap feature in the PIP use it to see if color when tuner is switched from main to PIP tuner.

A possible way around the issue is to look to see if rear audio/video inputs have color---you could route signal from a box etc to one of those and BYPASS the problem if rear inputs do not have this problem(not likely they will).

I am getting the pip but not regular picture. Sound no picture.

It could be as simple as your remote going bad try useing the buttons on the TV to make your TV go from PIP to regular screen. If this solves it then its your remote. If not you could have a defective IC chip or switching device such as a transistor

"NO Picture" 54" AKAI model PT5492S

I just had that problem. Check the terminal board that is on the left if you open the back of the TV. There is a thing in there with the number aa93-something. If you check under that board there should be some solders that have come loose. I just fixed this problem last night!!
