Video blacking out...

Video will black out, but audio will remain. Input or source signal does not matter - it's blacked out on all. After leaving overnight, will work again but will undoubtedly fail and black out again. I'm guessing its the video power supply and have actually changed some of the capacitors already, but not all on the board with the high voltage unit. Will a change of all capacitors work?

Re: video blacking out...

Changing all the caps is not the right approach to problem solving.Works cold,but fails after hot is a thermal issue.After set warms up and fails,use cool freeze spray on suspect components to isolate.Determine whether CRT filaments are lit and/or if HV is present.Also,inspect jumper wire from transformer to HV block-if corroded,replace jumper HV lead & HV block w/Mits. parts.

The tv on;y shows a small pip window in color if it is a large picture the picture is in black and white how to fix?

Whatever input video signal you're using, PIP should be in color. What are you using out of your dvd for the second video input source, composite or component? Composite you should always have color, Component, if you have a bad red or blue, and just the green is working, you will get black and white. The green is the luminence signal.

How do i get 1080i, my tv shows im only in 480i. i think i might have it hooked up incorrect. my other tv of another brand is much newer so all i did was connect the hdmi cable from the tv to the cable box...


Your TV will display all High Definition signals as 1080i True HDTV™ and all standard definition signals will be displayed as 480p.

Component Inputs 1-2
These inputs can be used for the connection of A/V equipment with component video outputs, such as a DVD player or external HDTV receiver. Please see Appendix B for signal compatibility.
Input DTV (480i/480p/1080i)
This input is used to connect an external DTV receiver, and can be configured for YPrPb and RGB plus H&V signal types.

As a special feature, you have the ability to adjust the red and blue light beams in reference to the fixed green light beam. This process is called convergence. There are two separate memories for convergence. One, for SD 480i/480p signals; the other for HD 1080i signals. SD convergence should be adjusted while watching an SD source and HD convergence should be adjusted while watching an HD source.

Wide Expand: Enlarges the picture, cropping some of the image on both sides. This Expand format is useful to remove or reduce black side bars on HD broadcasts of 4:3 images with black bars. Available for analog 1080i, digital SD 16:9 and digital HD signals.

This input is compatible with most standard DTV and satellite receivers with component video (YPbPr) outputs. Compatible DTV signals are SDTV 480i/480p, and HDTV 1080i. All other DTV signals, such as 720p, need to be converted by the DTV receiver to one of the compatible signal types. Please check the DTV receiver specifications before connecting.
This input is compatible with some DTV receivers using RGB with "separate H and V sync". Compatible DTV signals are SDTV 480i, 480p, and HDTV 1080i. All other DTV signals, such as 720p, need to be converted by the DTV receiver to one of the compatible signal types. Industry standards for DTV RGB signals (systems, synchronization, timing, and signal strengths) are not currently established. These inputs will not be compatible with all DTV receivers that offer RGB, HV outputs. RGB, HV signals with less than 5 cables are not compatible.
If your DTV receiver offers both DTV component video signals and DTV RGB, HV signals, we suggest you use the DTV component video signals. Check the DTV receiver specifications before connecting.

Rca big sreen went black and white menue is still in color

Try using one of the other video input options, like AV inputs. If still have black and white picture, then the color processor is having issues. If now in color, then your tuner has issues detecting the chroma / luminance signal.

If you are using an external digital box, this may be the source of the problem as well. If you still have a VCR, connect the coax from VCR to the coax input on the TV, and play a tape. Tune the tv to channel 3 or 4. If in color, then your set top digital box is faulty.

Toshiba 65hm167 black screen with video input

That is correct, if the lamp was bad then you will not see a picture at all. The fact that you are getting menu means the lamp is good and most likely the processor and light engine are also okay. Check other inputs to see if you have the same problem on all the inputs.

No color picture is in black and white only

I presume you are using a S-video input from maybe a computer source.
If it is an S-video source then you should try a different cable of better quality. Also check that the TV is set for the correct type of input.

Foot note to issue

If the source to the PIP input is a color signal then the PIP display will be color. PIP sets have two video sources one goes to the main screen while the other goes to the PIP. it all depends on what the format of the signal is being sent to each input. This is quite normal.

Video input from dvd player shows as black screen w/ squigly color lines

have you tried other devices for input...vcr, or other dvd players to see if it is a problem with the player or with the tv? Check the output setting for the dvd player (1080i etc) and ensure you are connecting to the proper inputs for either analog or digital signals (RCA inputs or RGB).
