Re: stuck on black and white

Hi, this is usually an indication of a shattered color wheel, the only way you can be certain is to take the set all apart and look at the color wheel, looks like a set of prism glass mounted on a fan shaft, if the shaft doesn`t spin or the prism glass comes apart the picture will be black & white, hope this helps, BMW Rider

TV fell and now only have black and white picture No color.

if you were using a straight coax connection you might want to try HDMI, on a Cable or sat box or if you are using component connections make sure they're all color coordinated. just because one input may be damaged doesn't mean other inputs are damaged try using a Blu ray player you know is good, checking different types of connectors and different inputs. If you get the same results off all inputs then the tv has sustained damage, might want to check prices at Walmart cuz it ain't gonna be worth it to have it fixed

Color problems vizio lcd hdtv

If your tv has a custom settings area, first turn all color down on set so picture looks black and white. Now in color settings look for red blue and green color bars. Use the bars until the picture looks as true to black and white as possible. Also, try changing color temp.

Sounds just like a loose solder connection. The trick is finding it. I would start with the microchips and the large transformer. Otherwise, it could be a capacitor starting to short out. I would give both options a 50-50 chance to be the problem.

Lg 32lc2r, only showing picture in black and white

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.
