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.

No color


Does it have a video input? Does it have color when playing a vhs tape or dvd into the video input?

Does the set show the raster lines? Is there any snow showing on the raster?

If the set does not show color with an a/v input either then it is likely the main power supply section feeding the deflection system or the video processing is bad.

RCA sets more than a few years old are not good investments for repairs, unfortunately.

Let me know the answers to the questions above and I can give you a more precise suggestion.
 
 Good Luck

Probable causes 1) Magnetic field disturbance from near by equipments. eg. Audio Speakers. 2) It might also caused by shifting TV position 3) the degaussing might be faulty. Demagnetizing the set will resolve the problem.

DVD player in black and white


Ok I know I just made a comment but guess what... heres the solution!!!!!!! I was sooo mad that I went and started playing with the cables and got it working. You have to plug in white to white, yellow to green and red to blue on the back of the DVD player and match up the colors on the back of the tv. And it plays in color!! Hope this works for you too!
