Check all your inputs and reset cable box or satellite. I have never seen a color problem on this set. I have seen a lot of mice ( rodent ) problems on this and crt fluid leaks. If no solution the color comes from the digital board that can be replaced and I might have one.

Hello strata_rocks,

This denotes a possible malfunction of the chroma (color) circuits in your TV. You will need to check and see if your chroma signal is being generated at the output of the video processor IC. In addition you want to check the video signal to make sure that the color burst signal is present once the video signal is modulated from the IF input section of the video processor.

These are start off points for your troubleshooting. If you do not have a background in electronics, you have two options, the first is to replace the video board, the second option is to have a qualified TV repair person work on your television and change the board out, after troubleshooting the problem.

Thank you,

I have an RCA HDTV 52 in 2005 model that makes a humming noise picture color starts jumping in and out from color to blk and white then picture totally goes blk, then after a few minutes will come bk on....

with the symptoms id start looking in the High Voltage area for a Multiplier block failing or possible fly back transformer and i would not continue watching it ti the problem is isolated and repaired as this can further damage and destroy a video processor IC or other parts but id suspect a multiplier block or high voltage tripler is another name for it it is its accesable from the front by removing the speaker panel and be CAREFUL as there is High Voltage present there and you could get a Nasty Zap

My tv will turn on there is no picture and it


The only two parts that can cause scratching sound are the color wheel (if present) and the cooling fans.

The TV must be taken apart and tested by a technician.

To get in touch with a qualified technician ring the number listed on the user manual or check your Mitsubishi support website.

Picture and sound problem at 21" sony waga color tv

This is due to problem in deflection area and power supply section malfunction. Make one general service by technical person immediately to avoid major transformer failure problem. Since this is initial stage, the cost of repair is probably less.
