Question about Toshiba 32A50 32" TV

1 Answer

Toshiba Color picture is black and white

This picture on our Toshiba TV (1999) has gone to black and white. All connections secure. Is this something worth trying to have fixed, or is it time for a new TV?

    I bought a really cheap Sylvania small color TV-VCR combo set at Sears on sale in the early 2000s. The VCR only lasted a year, but someone hooked an old VCR unit to it and I've used it five days a week while I fix lunch for day care kids in my home. (I don't use it for regular TV programs.) Suddenly today when I put a tape in, the picture was like the old black and white sets with poor quality. I tried another tape and still got the same black and white picture. Am I stuck buying a new small color set?

Good day.
The missing color issue can be resolved by resoldering the loose contacts in your units circuitry. Your unit is still worth to be fixed.

Response is highly appreciated.

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

My tv have one line white horizontal

The vertical output integrated circuit (Q301, mounted on a heatsink roughly in the middle of the main circuit board) isn't working. This is frequently because of bad solder connections, which is an easy repair if there are no other parts needing replacement. However, the device itself may have gone bad or there may be power supply problems. It's not unusual for other parts around the IC to go bad first and cause the IC to fail.

You can try resoldering the connections to Q301. If that doesn't bring the picture back, or there are other pictures problems afterward, you can see what a TV technician would charge to repair the set. I always liked the Toshiba picture quality, so if everything else was working properly and you were happy with the set it might be worth the cost of fixing it.

Try connecting any other devices to the TV and check whether the issue persists, this is to confirm the issue. You can also try changing the cable to connect the devices to the TV. Try resetting the TV to the factory settings. If the issue still persists, try power resetting the TV.
Turn Off the Tv and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation.
If the issue persists, then the TV may require service.

DVD connections have progressively grown darker and now have gone to totaly black and white. Television color and picture are completely normal.

If you are using the red,green and blue component inputs, check to make sure the red and blue ones are connected good and none of the jacks are loose. If not there is a problem with either the DVD player or the TV. Hard to say. Thanks
