No color TV on my Trutech 7'' LCD TV + DVD under the cabinet model KLV3170

I can watch dvds OK in color but not regular TV. I've tried everything with no results. Is there a secret button I cannot see? The set is in Brazil, where the voltage is the same but the TV system is not. My other American LCD works fine in color, but this one I see color only playing dvd - the black and white image is perfect, only with no color. Thanks for your help.

The TV broadcast system in Brazil is PAL-M.
If this TV was bought from the US then the TV will be expecting the NTSC system.
Your other American TV may be a multi standard TV and is able to detect and adapt to your PAL broadcast system. Not all TVs do this.

How do you connect the DVD to the Trutech TV? Is it with a Scart connector? If so then the TV will not be using any broadcast standard at all and that is why it works properly.

Unfortunately if you have searched all the menus and manual instructions without finding a TV system selection, then this TV may never be able to receive TV broadcast in colour.

Does the JVC AV-56P776 have any kind of lock out on it went thru setup it plays dvd's but not regular tv

if plays DVDs via rear connections what have you got hooked to it for regular tv reception? Hooked to the coax fitting, using antenna or cable or sat with a box or not?

Good news is if it works with DVD set is likely ok and you have some other issue----just need some more information to decide what that issue is.

Is it a Duplicate Question....Wonder why?

Same reply :0

This is an internal Fault. Diagnosis is required to make sure whether it is Failed T Con Board or Light Engine. I do not think that it would really help by changing the TV settings. This was a Common Problem with Old LCD's where you got Blurry Spots specially while Playing Real Fast Movies or Games. On Few Occasions, it as Corrupted Firmware.

As i cannot see the Video or Screen from here, more likely what i could guess it is an Internal Fault as you have tried using HDMI, Use different Setting Combination's and you got the same Picture Quality with DVD as well.

So, what i could suggest, get back to the Seller and Lodge an Official Complain and get it Replaced. There is no point in Opening and TV and Inspecting it and Replacing Components when it was less than a month ago.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I want to turn my regular signal into an HDtv signal. How Can I do this?

Your, ahem..., your Regular Signal?

Please describe this more in detail, what you are trying to do?

There are upscaling dvd players these days that can upscale regular dvds to HD...

What regular signal are you talking about? Over-the-air TV went to Digital recently ... so the Regular TV old style signals are mostly gone from the airwaves. That was NTSC (Never Twice the Same Color, no really Nation Television Sub Committee.) Now it is Advanced aka ATSC. Most tuners on newer tv's will do both NTSC and ATSC both on over-the-air and on most Cable TV systems.

Retrievo has you manual. You could probably also find it on the manufacturers web site...

there is a possibility that you have switched the RCA cables for the right port, the color patterns happen if your plug the component RCA ( Y Pb Pr) on a diff port. their usually color coded so please double check that to.

TV will turn on, but not respond

Good Day, mistymiles;

Try this before calling a factory authorized service center:

Press " menu 2 > 4 > 7 > 0 > enter", on remote. After settings have been initialized > press the system reset button on the front, once the LED stops blinking > reprogram settings and tuner channels (if not using box). IF NOT fixed call for service (get estimate before repair) and suspect repair of DM PCB (printed circuit board).

Good Luck, big IRISH.

My trutech tv has a built in dvd player and it isnt playing dvds any mor.

clean the lens of your dvd player that might solve your problem. if not then have a tech take a look at it, as the problem can be more technical than user friendly.or purchase a new dvd player if it will cost too much to repair.

good luck

Hey, I found this on a blogsite about lcd rear projections....looks like our tv's screens have been burned by the "pillers" that surround the tv when switching from 4:3 to 16:9 or fullscreen... read below, I hope it helps !

Rear projection crt's,the first generation widescreen tv's were notorious for that.Lcd and plasma can have the same problem,but it takes much longer and is not as harsh.Dlp's use tiny mirrors,so it isn't a problem with them.Lcd and plasma tv's should be ok unless you watch them with blck bars on them all the time.
We have lcd monitors at work,and i've seen them after a year with bad burn in.They also run 24 hrs a day 7 days a week with the same display.

GKar posted 2006 Oct 10 15:31 TooLFooL : i have 51" sony rear-projection and those freakin' grey bars burned themselves right into the screen...

I read that to avoid the burning you had to limit your 4:3 viewing time to 15% of total time viewed. (applied to my TV but apparently yours and others as well...great! now they tell you :-x , this applies unless 4:3 aspect was changed to stretched or zoomed...yuck :-x )

This really sucks as a Star Trek/Lexx/Farscape fan as they are mostly 4:3, fortunately the upconvert player/hdmi combo sends a 1080i 16:9 signal to my TV so the effects are drastically reduced by nearly filling the TV without the grey bars or burn in problem without stretch or zoom modes being used. yay! :wink: (default grey bars set to black automatically, apparently grey isn't needed due to screen area covered is sufficient for burn in not to be a problem.)

Bizzare Color Problem

I normally find that the DVD is either in the progressive scan or interlaced mode. If the DVD is in analog inputs (video inputs), then, it should be in the interlaced mode. If the DVD is in the component input, then, it should be set to the progresive mode. On older DVDs, the switch to turn it to the proper mode is on the back or bottom of the DVD. Newer units are on the remote that says progressive or on the menu of the DVD. The owners manual should have instructions on how to change it.
