Re: No Color on Zenith SG5257S

Hello Nexium7,

The best place to get a schematic would be from the manufacture Zenith, However you can try The cost for the schematic is $23.99.

I would suggest you start by using a color bar generator to send a known good signal in to the RF connector on your tV then go to the output of the video detector to look at the video signal, what you should find will be on the schematic, which should be the video signal with color burst if the color burst is not present or low in amplitude this is your problem and the trouble is happening before the video stages. If the burst is ok the you will have to test along the video path until you get to the point that the burst signal is no longer present, and then you will know the stage which the problem is occurring.

In any event you will need a schematic, multimeter, oscilloscope, and signal generator (color bar and raster purity)

Thank you,

JVC 32" D series TV is suddenly black and white

Wow that's interesting, was there anybody watching your home while you were gone? There is a possibility that someone simply turned down the color level with the color control? Check that first. It's an unusual symptom. With composite video, component video or HDMI it's not usually possible to experience that defect. Since the color (chrominance signal) is usually inseparable from the luminance (black and white signal) I would check the color setting first. Other wise your set has become unable to detect that color signal... I bet it's a setting rather than a defect.

Happy Viewing

Zenith television no color except when in the menue screens

The onscreen menu does not rely on the color circuit to produce a color menu.
The most common issues with that symptom are bad color crystal on the main board or a shorted transistor on the main board next to the video jungle IC
