Older Fisher TV PC2525 works fine but the color just went out :-(
Older Fisher TV works fine but the color just went out, I switched tv's and the other one works fine, so it's not a connection problem. Does this tv have a inexpensive replaceable tube, or something I can replace on my own? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks Darren

I had a TV do that about a year ago, the repair man said it was the color wheel inside the tv. I changed the bulb to see if he was BS'ng me and eventually got the manufacturer to send a color wheel and I change it myself, was very easy...TV works fine ever since. Hope this helps
Are you still having problems with your receiver? Depending on the type TV you have, TV 1, on an older TV will use channel 3 of 4. A newer TV will have an input setting. If you have the TV remote, press either the "input", "source", or "tv/video" button to cycle through the input settings till you find a picture. Make sure the green, blue, and amber lights are lit on the receiver. TV 2 should be on channel 60 or 73. I hope this helps.
Hiya Margy, I know your query was 6 months ago,but I had a similar problem with connecting an Aiko SD set top box to our second older tv set & after 3 months only recently found the solution! Our problem? When connected the tv picture went green! Nobody,including Tandy staff,knew what to do! (We also have an Aiko STB connected to our newer tv and it worked fine from day one.) Anyway,it took 3 months but I finally worked it out. Our problem was settings on the TV,NOT the STB. Go to your TV's COLOR settings,pick a setting called 'COLOR SYSTEM' and change from 'ntsc' or 'pal'(depending on what country you're in) to AUTO. It isn't enough to change the tv system on the STB's SETUP menu,or to change it on the TV's SYSTEM settings,you have to change it in the TV's COLOUR settings as well. Change colour system to 'auto' and see if that helps.(And of course,change all system settings on both the tv & the STB to AUTO or the right system for your country if you haven't done so) Hope this helps! Good luck!
I suspect that the convergence board may be defective. If the convergence was okay before and then went out, this is a fault and not an adjustment! Adjusting only compounds the fault.
Look up the Sanyo home page on the net, and get their tech support. You can order a new convergence board, and the service manual to start.
It may be more practical for you to let their authorized service rep service the set for you. It is possible that you start buying the parts, and end up needing to troubleshoot for more faults. You will need the proper tools and training to get involved in troubleshooting your set.
