Most merchants will take the set back within 30 days but you can opt for warranty repair from the manufacture. try an auto program 1st. assuming you are just using cable.

    ok thats some help are you going to the set with compenet cable (RBG)? if so check or replace the cable. Y or lumins carries the all collor signal Pb minuses from Y to give Blue info and Pr minuses from Y to give Red. so if the Pb and Pr are a poor connection black and white is all you get. if that is not the problem then have it look at by an authorized servicer or take it back. I wish I had the time to explain all the points of electronic manufacturing but it would take forever. even a $30K lexus can have problems with in few days (it's not the way it should be but does happen).

My tv turns on in black and white only. What am I doing wrong?


Is it a BW TV from the 1960's or a new TV? Likely a new TV. Check that the tuner is bad, but this is a rare problem for new TV's.

I bought a Philips 32PFL3505D tv yesterday and now when i try to turn it on the white light comes on for a second and then turns off. I have tried unplugging it for a minute and putting back in and that...


I think that you should return it to the store where you bought your tv it has a warranty. Do not attempt to open it or the warranty will be void. Good day and best regards

My Xbox 360 is in black and white, it also has no sound!!


The problem could lie in the audio video cable or Hdmi cable. Try replacing that or even taking the 360 back for a new one. If thats not the solution then it could be the input on your tv.

Philip DCP750/37 turn black and white


I have had this problem all you do it wobble the screen back and forth until you find the right spot. if that doesnt work. unplug it from the charger assuming it is plugged in. If THAT doesnt work, believe me a little "thwap" on the back will.

Screen losing color.. turning black and white


Your TV goes black & white, because your Wii could be NTSC or PAL which. If your Wii is PAL and your TV is NTSC then the TV will show a blac and white color. Since NTSC is for North America and PAL for Asia
