Question about Philips 32PT5441/37 32" TV

1 Answer

Color loss (but onscreen displays in color) - DIY repair?

My Philips 32PT5441/37 32"TV abruptly shows only B&W (whether showing cable TV, DVD movies, with same problem even using front A/V inputs); sound, performance and picture quality otherwise fine.
Onscreen displays still show color;
MY MAIN QUESTION IS:
Should I open up the cabinet (properly grounded, electrician's tools/safety techniques, etc) and remove a video card somewhere and pop in a replacement?
If so, what do I need to order?
Thanks in advance

    S4 diamonds intended - helpful and quick reply (Sorry I was unclear - the loss of color is apparently permanent) Since skiz & scope necessary, the $100-$210 (2 local shops guesstimated $135-$175 today) is a sufficient answer, since a NEW 32" tube tv is on sale here for $175.. (clearance at CC)

    Oh well... off to the local eWaste collection center..

    followup - well, the good news is that this problem (and my wife's post-surgical analgesics) led her to suggest I buy a HDTV... "

Your description was great, thank you

there is only 1 hope for you on this one, intermittent color is a touf one, tap on the board with wooden or plastic handel see if you can make the color come and go that way, if so you have a intermittent break in the board, my guess is by one of the big ic chips on the board. if not able to make the problem act up with the taping then you have to look at the croma section and color oscillator section , this is not easy needs skiz and a scope and a little know how. depending on what they need for time a shop would charge 100-210 to fix this kind of problem. sorry this is not what you wanted to hear but is one of the tufer problem to fix on a tv.

I cannot get the DVD player to display the movie in color. It is only showing in black and white yet it is a DVD in color.


Color system may be different. If say DVD player set for PAL and DVD is NTSC and TV is Pal you will get this effect.

When playing DVD on panasonic plasma TV, the color is black and white


Consult the owner manual for the player (and or try it on another set) as many players have settings that can cause B&W or a single color display for the image.

My dvd's play in black & white. cant get any color in pitures.


Hello,

There are three types of display settings. 1 PAL, 2, NTSC and 3, Auto.

The pal and auto makes a display show color while the NTSC allow a display show in black and white but sometimes NTSC also shows color. It is possible that the display format on the movie is NTSC.

To fix this problem, play the movie that shows black and white. When the movie shows in black and white, press PAL/NTSC or P/N on the remote control and it should display in color.

Or Go to the player menu, check video or display setting, change it to Auto.

Problem should be fixed because that's where it lies....

But if it doesn't solve the problem, please let me know so that I may direct you further on what next to do.

I hope you understand the above.

Good luck.

I own a toshiba 19dv500 and am having trouble viewing a dvd, the system is working but only in black and white, no colour\???


Hello there,

A black and white picture is most often due to a faulty or incorrect RGB (red/green/blue) connection or cable.


If you are using a composite connection (red/white/yellow RCA jacks), you have probably connected the yellow plug to a socket labelled Pr/Pb, Cr/Cb, or Y - on either the DVD player or the TV - most probably the TV. The yellow needs to be connected to a socket labelled "VIDEO". If you connect this to any socket labelled Pr/Pb, Cr/Cb, or Y, you will get a black and white picture.

If you are using a component connection (red/green/blue RCA jacks), one of the plugs is either not fully inserted into the socket or is in the wrong socket. If you remove any one of the R/G/B plugs, you will get a black and white picture.

If you are using a SCART cable (UK / AUS), you may have a bent, damaged or disconnected pin.

I suggest you check and correct the connections between your DVD player and TV. If you are unable to locate the problem, please try another cable as the one you are using may be damaged. If you are still unable to locate the fault, please let me know the brand and model number of the DVD player and how it is connected to the TV. If required, I can also draw a diagram showing the correct connections.


It would also be useful to know whether this "fault" suddenly occured, or whether you have just connected the player to the TV.

Hope this helps - please let me know if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

Movie has no red color only green and yellow


Remove & re-seat the component video cables at both the TV and the DVD player.

If the problem continues, disconnect BOTH ends of the BLUE cable and the RED cable. Connect the BLUE cable to the RED jack at both the DVD and TV, and connect the RED cable to the BLUE jack ob both the TV and DVD. If the RED color comes back and the BLUE is missing, then replace the RED cable (the red cable is broken and will not pass the signal that it is connected to).

If all works, reconnect the colored cables to the corresponding colored jacks at both the TV and DVD player.

If the RED color still won't display, isolate the trouble to either the DVD player or TV by connecting the DVD to another TV w/ component jacks. If the RED is still missing, it is a problem inside the DVD player - if the RED displays, it is a problem with the TV.

Good luck!

The cd is working fine. however there is no display on tv.


Ensure that your connections are securely in place; a loose cable can cause signal loss and yet may not be totally obvious from a qick inspection.
