My mother-in-law sent me her unit with the same problem. The problem i had was you couldn't really read anything on the screen in the setup menu. I finally got lucky and got in the right menu and set everything to default settings and it went right back. Here are the steps to reset it without reading it. 
1. remove all tapes and discs
2 if your unit scans for channels when you turn it on press return once
3.if it doesnt go to channel scanning you should have a blank screen
4.press the functions button once
5.press down twice
6.press the enter button
7.press the enter button again
8.press down once
9.press right once
10.press down 4 times
11.press enter once
12.press up once
13.press enter once and the double image should be gone
14. press the functions button twice to exit

hope this works for you

    Oh my gosh I don't believe you fixed this - you are a genius, THANK YOU! How on earth you managed to figure that out without being able to actually see the menu I will never know, but I am in awe and extremely grateful!!!

Try holding the stop button and the DVD dubbing button at the same time and waiting about 3 seconds. I had to do this twice, but it solved my problem.

    I used this and it seemed like it unstuck something, but I still had a problem, then I used Solution 2 below (indy5155) and it is totally fixed!

Color problems vizio lcd hdtv


If your tv has a custom settings area, first turn all color down on set so picture looks black and white. Now in color settings look for red blue and green color bars. Use the bars until the picture looks as true to black and white as possible. Also, try changing color temp.

Dvd is playing movies in black and white


Hi
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

My Samsung 47 has a black film covering 1/2 the screen for about


Samsung only makes TVs that last 2 years, mine also has the same problem. Throw it away and buy a cheaper disposable TV, despite all the hype Samsung is just another cheap and nasty manufacturer who uses its customers as product testers. Why do you think they keep changing model numbers every week ?

Hitachi RP CRT Gone Red On All Inputs!!!


I want you to do a simple visual check of something that will tell me what the problem may be.

Go to a channel that is in black and white--old movie and tell me what color the screen/picture is.

You can also turn the COLOR in the customer menu all the way off and look that way.

What we are trying to see here is if TRACKING is set correctly or has changed. If the screen is somewhat to medium reddish it may be an adjustment outside of the customer menu.

Let me know what you find--I have seen several of these where the black and white picture was somewhat red--the idea is it should be as close to black and white as possible--if red is the predominant background color the picture will look reddish.

If this has helped and you confirm the red instead of black and white picture--I can tell you a easy way to adjust this.

If this information told you something you did not know and helps you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

New lcd tv and dvd player is playing movies in black & white


1. Verify connections are color coded.

2. If they are correct, take out movie, press Play/Stop at same time on the front of the unit (not remote) to reset any settings that may have been changed.

Lg 32lc2r, only showing picture in black and white


Make sure that the color control level is set to the default or 50% to start with. This should be in the Video menu.

The colour for the tuner and for the encoded base-band video uses a circuit area called the colour demodulator. It is possible that this cirucuit area has failed and needs servicing.
