I have a mistubishi vs-5051 that has not color but the menu is green whats wrong

When you see the a picture with missing color, but the television is capable of showing colors on screen you have a cabling problem from the device sending the picture to the TV.
If you are using component video, three separate connectors red, green, and blue, and they are all matched to correctly colored termal on each end, be sure all cables fit tight. If the cables are tightly connected to the terminal of matching color at each end you will need to replace the cable. Component Video Cable on a picture)
If you are using S-video, older connection type where the cable end is a ring with four tiny metal pins plus a plastic square, one of the bins is either bent or broken. If you are unable to adjust the pins to fix the cable replace it. S-Video Cable on a picture)

My onida 21" black color

Possible there is a fault in soldering. Poor joints in the CRT base circuit of the CRT tube will result in poor connection after some use due to the fact the heating and cooling will detach off the leads. So use a good soldering iron to touch up all the points in your main board and the CRT board and it must work provided your tube is not faulty.

How to adjust color on sk-32h570d

This is from the MANUAL


A-1 Settings
Use the Settings sub-menu options to manually adjust the display quality. Use the ◄/► keys to adjust the
option level.
Adjust the luminance level.
Adjust the brightness to darkness ratio.
Adjust the balance of the red, green, and blue colors in the display.
Adjust the color intensity.
Adjust the sharpness or softness of the display.
Adjust the brightness level of the screen backlight.

AND this is from the troubleshooting procedures in the manual


Wrong, abnormal or missing colors

・ If any colors (red, green or blue) are missing, check the video cable to make sure it is securely connected. Loose or broken pins in the cable connector could cause an improper connection.
・ Press and select Picture | Settings to adjust the Hue and Saturation settings. You can also select
Picture | Advanced to adjust the Color Temperature settings.
・Connect the TV to another computer and check if the problem is with the computer screen.

Other than that there is no mention of color adjustment

No color

The most common reason for this is when you use component cables (YpYbYr) and the red or blue cable is bad it will cause a black and white picture. Also doesn't hurt to check the color settings in the menu too.

Color of people's faces in movies played via DVD is now blue since connected to LCD TV

The reason the picture is blue on the DVD is because you have poor video cables running the feed, probably RCA yellow cable im guessing. Get some nice component cables for the DVD feed and it will fix you right up.

Componet 1 and WII

First of all, make sure that you have the colors of the component cable matched correctly. You can switch the Pr and Pb cable and still get a picture although in the wrong color.

Secondly, go to the TV menu... the menu should still be in color. If it is in B/W then you might have a hardware issue. Try adjusting the custom color setting so that you get a blue picture or red picture. There is an option for adjusting the color called "blue mute" it should give you a perfectly blue picture. If you still don't get any color than it is a hardware issue. It could be the Main Board or the Control Board.

It was the Main Board in my case.

Are you using the component inputs from the DVD player (blue, green, red)? HDMI? If using the component cable, it sounds like one is in the wrong slot. If using HDMI, try looking at the setup in the DVD menu to make sure it is using the correct output. I had a samsung DVD player that kept trying to use the component output even though I told it to use the HDMI and my picture looked red. Let me know.
