Re: Black and White

On a low signal input to the set the first thing you loose is the color, then it goes snowy and then just snowwhite in a snow storm or all blue with no sound.

check your cables for no shorts and loose connections,
sometimes the color killer control inside the set in the color circuit has to be tweaked alittle.

Hi,Yes your problem sounds like the DMD board.This is how it works: Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,color distortion or white dots on screens. Here's a video that will help you find where the DMd chip is located : Have a blessed one!

I am trying to hook up my vcr and my DVD to the 60pp9202 60 in my DVD is working but my VCR is not. I am getting a black and white picture on one channel and sound on the other.

put the dvd plug scart into the spare scart socket on the vhs player,then u can only use one player at a time,ie if watching dvd put vhs player into standby or vice versa,the other scart socket on the vhs player goes to the tv. when not using either be sure to put both on standby.

Component input makes all pictures black and white?

You can also check to make sure you're on the correct TV input. I've seen this happen if you use S-Video for example, and the TV is set to a composite input by mistake. If you're using S-Video make sure the yellow composite cable is unplugged.
