I have a samsung lcd tv that powers on has sound but the picture is fuzzy and has no colour . What would be the component that needs replacing for this ??


Hello. Before you start replacing parts, make sure your connections are correct. It sounds like you have connected a composite source to a component input. Composite is three RCA plugs, a yellow for all of the video, and a red and white for audio left and right channels. Component is five RCA cables, green, red and blue for video, and red and white for audio. if composite is connected to a component input, the picture will be black and white with squiggly lines all through it.

I have an onn 42 inck flatscreen tv and since last night have lost all colour on screen,,,tried cable and scart all seem ok,,any ideas


Hi.

If the problem happens using different input and devices, then it is either the terminal circuit (input/output connectors) or the processing unit in main board. The terminals are unlikely the culprit if problem concerns different inputs.

I imagine that the picture is not properly B&W (gray-shades) but some kind of reddish, bluish or greenish picture as the LCD will process picture using RGB (red green blue) channels instead of CYMK (cyan yellow magenta black) like CRT TVs.

Test the TV using an external aerial. You will notice if the channels have the wrong color even from static.

Use different inputs, different cables and different devices. beware of SCART cables, the SCART contacts are very easy to break. A defective cable will loose picture. Better testing using AV cables and component cables. AV cables are red/white for sound and yellow for video. If the two-wired yellow cable does not work, then the TV is faulty.
Other test can be done using component cables. Component cables send the three red-green-blue signals on different cables, hence testing is simple. Test swapping cables and see if TV tone stays the same if color tone changes the problem were the cables. Test also using at least two different devices (e.g. one DVD player and one TV receiver or a playstation).

If you find that the TV is defective call the manufacturer at the number listed on manual. If the problem is that one or more RGB channels do not work the TV main controller board must be replaced.

I have a memorex dvd player and a dynex 32" lcd hdtv. I have all the cord correctly in the component plugs but the picture is black and white and there is no sound.


HI,
i think ur component video connection may inter changed. check it. are u connected red to red, green to green an blue to blue. if interchanged the picture will be black and white. also check the video system of ur tv and dvd.
about audio. for that u need a stereo rca chord. connect the audio output of ur dvd to the component audio input of ur tv. if u have already connected the audio cable , check the audio setup of ur dvd. there is selection for pcm audio select it and then check again.
ok

My samsung lcd tv will only show me black and white when i plug my wii in component 2, how do i make it go back to color?


Your problem may be that you need to select the "AV" input on the HDTV. Samsung HDTVs of late combine the composite video with the green input component video. To use the yellow composite video in the green input port you have to select the proper AV input on the TV which tells the TV to go composite video (yellow) instead of component video (green). Try this, it may work.

Tv works jsut no pic black and white screen says weak or no signel?


If it says "weak or no signal", this means your are not showing the correct input or have no channels programmed.

To find the the correct video input:
1. turn On the device you are trying to see
2. press the [input] button on the side of the TV until you get a picture (wait 3 seconds between pressing the button)

You program the TV by accessing it in the User Menu.

Also, You may access the inputs using the TV remote. Each input button (V4 and V5) may need to be pressed muliptle time to access the picture . When you press this on the remote you will notice the input change from Composite 1, Component 1, S-Video. V5 will show composite 2 and component 2. Using the side panel allows youto scan all inputs in case you are not sure.

Lcd tv hookup


Ive got 3 samsung tv's (lcd, plasma, DLP) and I use HDMI cables on all of them. Its the only way to get the full potential out of the tv. When you use the red/white/yellow RCA cables the signal is anolog aka "old technology". Component cables are good but HDMI is the best. HDMI is a digital signal and thats what all the components that go with the tv should be run on. If your dvd player does not have an HDMI output I would suggest getting one that has that output. As for the cable box most require you to upgrade to digital cable in order to get one with an HDMI output. If you dont want to spend the money on new components and run what you have now the picture will stay mediocre at best. Good luck hope this helped

46" LCD TV


Have you try the other inputs?

I would suggest to try all the other inputs and if you're still getting a black and white picture then that would mean a defective main board. If your TV is less then a year old, still cover under manufacturers warranty.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
