Lg 32lc2r, only showing picture in black and white

My LG tv is only showing black and white picture. the menus are in colour and the HDMI port shows picture in colour. The TV reception and AV ports seem to show the picture in black and white.

about 4 weeks ago the picture was colour and then all of a sudden it went to black and white.

Why could this be and how to I get colour back?

Make sure that the color control level is set to the default or 50% to start with. This should be in the Video menu.

The colour for the tuner and for the encoded base-band video uses a circuit area called the colour demodulator. It is possible that this cirucuit area has failed and needs servicing.

We want to connect a Sinotec RC-356 TV to a LG projector but can't find how to get an output from the TV into projector. Can this be done?


check at the back of your gadget, there are ports that are designed for AV codes , normally with red, yellow and white colors , get the AV codes and insert the matching colours to those port in which red vits audio, yellow its picture and white just enhances sound quality, then connect in the same manner to the projector............

Our hdmi port on our samsung tv is broken... its showing pic and sound but the colour is funny its almost like theres a pink tinge to the colour so its not showing the right colours it should...


Before getting the HDMI port repaired, I would suggest trying a new cable and also make sure that it's the HDMI port on the TV that's bad and not whatever is connected to that port. Try a different DVD player or something... Do you have a different HDMI input on the TV you can use?

Guys, Recently i got LG 22" LCD TV. It has VGA port and HDMI port. When i connected my CPU cable toLCD via VGA port it didn't show anything, :"( i checked input MENU on remote then it shows only 4...


HDMI [High Definition Multimedia Interface]. VGA [Video Graphics Array]. AV [Audio Video]. By these definitions itself talk to you about the inputs your TV have; and it do not support VGA. Output from PC is VGA. Without a VGA input with the TV, you can't connect the PC to TV. I think I'm clear. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

HDMI Ports on Toshiba Flat Screen TV stopped working


That's highly unlikely!!! More likely is that the cable is having problems or that someone mistakenly changed the picture i the TV from HDMI to regular reception. If the HDMI ports are changed to regular TV reception they don't see the HDMI ports only the regular video ports!

Turned my tv on and for some reason the DVD source is in black and white and controller not workin for it, TVs colour for other outputs and controller works only DVD that doesn't .


If you're using component cabling (red, green, blue cables) a black and white picture will occur when only the green cable is plugged in.

If you're using HDMI cabling, try a different HDMI port and see if your color comes back.

If not, unplug the set from power for a few minutes, plug it back in and see if problem persists.

If you still have the same problem, check the DVD player on another TV. If it shows color on a different TV, then your TV will need a replacement digital board which we can check availability on once we have a specific model number. If it's black and white on a different TV, then you have a problematic DVD player.

Vertical black and white bars on lcd screen


I'm not too familiar with the LG brand, but if the onscreen stuff looks fine (Volume, menus, etc.) then the panel is OK. Try a picture source other than the one you are using now (Tuner, HDMI, VGA, etc.)

1) If it's the same across all of them, then you will need to replace the main board in the TV.

2a) If it only affects one input, it could either be your video source that is bad (which means TV is OK), or
2b) that certain input port on TV is bad, which would mean you either don't use that input any more, or you replace the main board in the TV.

Can i connect my acer aspire 4730z to my television so i can watch dvds


Yes of course.
First of all you will need to identify the available input ports on your TV. An RCA port is generally standard nowadays and it consists of a red, a white and yellow coloured reception ports (the colours may differ between tvs, i.e black instead of red). The red and white are for stero sound and the yellow is for video.
Modern TV systems also have a VGA adapter which is small flat port like the ones on a computer screen. This is usually blue.
A third option is an S-Video port, which is round in shape.

To connect your laptop using the RCA port, you will need an S-Video to RCA converter. You connect the S-Video to the port on your latptop, and through the converter to the RCA yellow port on your TV. For sound you will use another cable that connects to the headphone jack on your laptop and then splits to a white and a red cable to connect to your TV.

If you have VGA port on your TV, then connect the VGA port on your laptop to the VGA port on your TV. No converters needed. For sound you will use the same approach as above.

To use the third option you will need to have an s-video out port on your laptop and you will connect it directly to your TV s-video port. For sound, again you will use the approach as the rca solution.

Then, using your remote control, select the AV mode or depending on your TV select the PC or VGA mode.

Finally, to transfer the video from your laptop to your TV press and hold the Fn key on your laptop's keyboard and then the F7 or F9 key. (It has s small TV icon on it).

That's it!
