I have a Apex LD3249, I moved it too another room plugged it up and did the channel scan for TV Air. When it finishes the screen is black and it has the white box in the middle saying to do a channel...

Main system control memory IC fault. This is a very small IC; have 8 solder terminals, and can be located very near to the main system control-chroma IC. Check and replace it. Be sure to replace it with the same number printed on it; in all respect. Otherwise, it won't go. Before replacing it, try a reset to this set, and then check.
There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

Turned my tv on and for some reason the DVD source is in black and white and controller not workin for it, TVs colour for other outputs and controller works only DVD that doesn't .

If you're using component cabling (red, green, blue cables) a black and white picture will occur when only the green cable is plugged in.

If you're using HDMI cabling, try a different HDMI port and see if your color comes back.

If not, unplug the set from power for a few minutes, plug it back in and see if problem persists.

If you still have the same problem, check the DVD player on another TV. If it shows color on a different TV, then your TV will need a replacement digital board which we can check availability on once we have a specific model number. If it's black and white on a different TV, then you have a problematic DVD player.

Dvd is playing movies in black and white

use red/white/Yellow cables to connect to a loose hard diskon which I keep films, TV-serials and talking books. The colour is fine.

But I connect the DVD to the TV with a scart cable.

Hope you get your colour

TV suddenly lost colour - gone black and white Virgin Media.

most likely the problem is due to a "lock up" you need to reset the system, unplug the set, and look in the back panel (I am assuming it is a digital (flat screen tv?) for a small (usuall) red nipple, again making sure the power is unplugged, depress the nipple with a bll point pen for about 5 seconds, wait a few minuets, and plug the set back in, you will most likely need to go to your menu for set up again, but you will be starting with a clean slate (so to sleak) and the tuner should then correctly pass the signal though

No Color playing DVD just black & White

Have you tried playing the DVD in PAL60,NTSC 3.35 or alternately select the colour system on the TV manually rather than in auto ?
