Question about Emerson EWL2005 20 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

We have an Emerson 20inch tv that suddenly lost it's color.

This morning when my husband went to work the bedroom TV was in color but when I turned it on this morning it was in black and white and has been ever since. We have it hooked up to DirectTV, as well as the living room tv, but the living room tv is fine. Not sure if it has to do with the satellite box or the TV. When we searched the menu on the TV the menu options show up in color and if you change the channel on the tv, not the satellite, the channel number shows up in color. Any suggestions?

Do a reset to this TV and then check. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

SOURCE: Lost satellite signal after hooking up an hdtv

Provided you did not make any changes to the cabling through out the house there is no reason that you would have lost satellite signal except if something is in front of the dish, some one moved the dish e.g. child bumping into it if it is on a pole, or there is a major storm in your area e.g. blizzard, hurricane etc. You also may have snow build up that may have caused this issue or a form of wildlife that has decided to use the dish as a perch and is blocking the LNB's. The most likely result would be trying to split a signal that is coming from the dish going to another satellite receiver or the multi-switch. There are a few ways to get a signal to that TV.
1. RESTORE THE SYSTEM TO ITS ORIGINAL CONFIGURATION.
2. Either come off the multi-switch in the attic or outside the home and run new lines to the new receiver if you have one for this TV.
3. You can run new lines from the dish to the new TV if your system has an available port(s).
4. This is the least preferred by most homeowners as it will result in two tvs viewing the same programming- You can put a splitter into the line going from a receiver to the tv and run one of the out ports to the new tv and the other back to the original tv.
I hope this assists you and thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can be of further assistance please let me know.

Hey, most stations are not broadcasting analog anymore. That is why you are only getting 10 channels.

SOURCE: I have a friend whose Emerson Flat Panel LCD

How do hook it up? Are you using composite video (Yellow video cable) from DVD Yellow RCA video out to the TV AV1 composite video Yellow RCA jack and RED and WHITE cables for sound. Or you are using component video hook up using RED, BLUE, and GREEN Video cables and the RED and WHITE cables for sound. Please post back and tell us how you have it set up. You just have to match the color of jacks and plugs, unless there is problem in the TV.

TV is suddeningly turning volume up and down


That could be one of two things first being the front keyboard and possibly a main board. However the keyboard is usually the cause of those two issues.

Different color vertical lines on screen Sony KDF-E55A20


Go to the last page of troubleshooting in the manual and perform the system reset procedure. Basically hold the Wega "arrow up" as you manually switch the TV off. It will automatically switch back on and reset. I had only vertical colored lines on the screen, with audio but no response to any remote control functions. The rest worked perfectly.

Color messed up on tv since lightning strike


your tv may have ben magnetized by the lightning strike.
tv's have an automatic degaussing circuit that demagnetizes
the pix tube when the set is turned on. this degaussing circuit
may not be working or magnetism may have been too strong for
the internal degaussing to correct.
contact local tv repair shop in your area see if they can manually
degauss your set , it should be a min. service charge around $25.
