Re: No color, only black and white

If you have a good black and white picture then your tuner is fine, and tuners only cost about $25 so even if it was your tuner it can easily and inexpensively be replaced. The color in the picture is developed in the main signal IC which uses a chroma crystal. If you have correctly set the color and tint controls and the main signal IC is getting good clock and data signals and you still have no color in the picture, then that main signal IC or chroma crystal will probably have to be replaced and that should be done by an experienced tech.

Re: No color, only black and white

There are no bulbs inside this set to replace. This TV set is all solid state. That means it uses transistors and IC's to work. If the color is not there you could have a bad tuner assembly in this TV set and to replace that would cost you more then the TV set is worth. Sorry. Good Luck

The screen is always black and white' no colour what so ever

Check the color system settings. If PAL is selected while the receiver is receiving NTSC and vice versa, there will be no color to picture. Set color system setting to 'Auto".

Tv broadcasts in color, but dvd broadcasts in black and white is this a fault or a feature and how can i resolve it

It would all depend on what type of cable you are useing to connect the dvd to the tv.With component cables if you have the blue input in the red or any of the three colors mixed up then it could cause a black n white picture also if you place normal a/v cables into the component slot then you also might get black n white have seen alot of people put the yellow cord into the green female slot of the component input of the tv instead of the video in slot. If you have HDMI an a blu ray make sure you got a high speed cable with at least a rate of 10.2 Gbps or faster should not result in black n white but you will not get the picture clarity u should be getting an it also may cause screen blur or drag on fast moving pictures

Hy does a colored tv record in black and white on

I suspect that you have the video standard is incorrect. Ensure you are recording in the same format as the signal you recieve. IE: NTSC or PAL. Whatever but they should both be the same. IE: Signal recieved = NTSC Video recorder must be set NTSC as well. Same goes for PAL.

VCR has no color picture is clear but black and white

Vee, V, a Vee Cee Rrrrr ? Not a DVD?

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???
