If this just happens while vcr is playing. Check the vcr. Did you happen to adjust its brightness and contrast settings. If things doesn't change. Then if this model is a crt type could be adjustment on its flyback transformer is needed tweaking slowly its screen knob or tweaking also its focus knob until you got it to the level of viewing it correctly.

But be aware, hazardous voltages inside it. Or let th technician set it for you, its a minor adjustment.

Why does my combo tv/dvd only play dvds in black and white? is it broken?


Check its settings. Get into its menu, and select picture settings. Set the color system to 'Auto' there. If wrong setting is done there, only B/W picture will be displayed.

Vcr problem


Did you try cleaning video heads? Most obvious problem. Do you see the picture out of the VCR while recording? That would rule out cables, switches set wrong and most of the electronic circuits.

Picture keeps trying to black out


Hi I have seen this problem before, and it was the video processor. I have seen the picture fade to black, then come back, and also fade to green. The cost to repair is prohibitive unless you could find a shop that perhaps has hung on to a unit that was hit by lightning, and only has a blown power supply. The only ray of sunshine I could offer, is if you recently connected your unit to a vcr, because the effect you describe is also what appears when you try to play a dvd that is copy guarded. If your DVD player is connected to a vcr then to the television, take the VCR out of the loop, connect straight to t.v. and all will be well. Goog Luck!

Hitachi 23" tv/ toshiba vcr


Sounds like a problem in your VCR IF what your saying is when the screen goes dark and you turn off the VCR then the screen on the tv returns to normal?? Does this happen with the vcr on and the tape not playing?? No Ok you have a problem in the video processor Ic or the circuit but most likly the IC as Ive seen this already twice in a toshiba VCR. No if it happens even when the VCR is on but the tapes not plying and the vcr is sitting, and the screen fades The problem is the on screen disply IC in the vcr. seen this a dozon or so times already. Vcrs no a days are not worth the money to invest Unless you got a really good one from the past, BUT you can by a good on for these times for well under 100 bucks . Good Luck

1. Check the TV's horizontal and vertical hold. 2. If there is a VCR connected: Shut off the VCR. If the problem clears up, the VCR is not properly ?fine-tuned.? Turn the VCR on and troubleshoot the VCR problems. 3. If a converter is connected to your TV and VCR: The VCR needs to be on channel 4. VCR may not be ?fine-tuned? to channel 4. Locate and adjust the fine-tuning mechanism until the picture comes in clearly. The <3/4> switch may be in the wrong position. Locate the switch on the back of the VCR and set it to <4>. 4. Check the fine-tuning of your TV. good luck :-)
