Quasar tv/vcr combo vv2009

Wondering if anyone can help????????? When I play tapes the picture is in black and white,but if I am just watching the tv I have color. I also have a dvd hooked up to the unit and all the dvd's play in color...What could the problem be with the vcr playback only being in black and white? Thanks-

    Thanks- will try the head cleaner, but knowing the luck I have it will probably be the color circuit!!!

    Hi, I have a problem similar to Linda's. I don't have color on any tape that is recorded at home (two different VCRs). However, I seem to have color on 'commerical' tapes, e.g. a Wiggles tape. I cleaned the heads and still have the same problem. I also recorded a program on a brand new tape, using a different VCR. The tape plays back in color on other VCRs, but not the one in question. Ideas?

It is in the Luminence circuit. it's about 50 pins, and it has an oscillator on top of a chip marked Toshiba on it. Don't know the actual part number because I don't have the schem, but it says VCRS 0167

If you are playing a VHS tape that should be color content and it's in Black and White ... well you could check the tracking control if there is one on that model. Otherwise it sounds pretty broken. Probably NWR. Not worth repair. Try Cleaning the heads with a cleaning tape???

Screen is Perfect just Black and White only...No Color

well a dvd player is only going to playback the media it is reading. So if the dvd is a reproduction of a b/w western then b/w is correct but if you play a dvd from the present then it should be in color unless the tv it is connected to is faulty. Try connecting to another tv to see if problem repeats on another tv

The tape only plays back in black and white.

normally this would be a tracking error, if you can manually adjust the tracking, this should fix the prob...if there is no way to manually adj the tracking, use a video head cleaner to see if cleaning the heads will help the auto track to function better.

It is not clear whether one DVD or all DVDs play in black and white. If it is only one make sure that the format of the DVD is correct. If it is all DVDs, given that the VHS tape and cable play with color, there could be a problem with the chroma circuit in the unit. This is probably something that a technician would need to diagnose. Good luck.
