Hello,

This means absolutely no color - equivalent to a black and white picture. Not even a hint of color.

First, confirm that the source is actually in color - try another channel or input device.

Next, check the settings of the color control - it may have accidentally been turned down. If your TV has some kind of automatic picture mode, try turning if off and adjusting the color control. Try adjusting fine tuning if you have such a control and the problem is with a broadcast or cable transmission.

At this point with a confirmed color signal source, there is a problem with the chroma circuitry.

Note that to the average person, the obvious question becomes: is my color picture tube bad? The answer is a definitive NO. It is virtually impossible for a defective CRT to cause a total loss of color. A defective CRT can cause a lack of a primary color - R, G, or, B or a short between two colors which will mess up the color but is not likely to result in a black and white picture.

Some possibilities in no particular order:

Weak signal or defect in tuner/IF causing loss of signal strength.

Coler killer set too high (internal control) if it has one.

Defective part around the chroma chip/circuit. Faulty color oscillator.

Bad connections in area of chroma chip/circuit.

Defective chroma chip (don't suspect this first just because it is probably very expensive).

Try prodding the main board around the chroma chip with an insulated tool to see if you can make the color come and go.

I had one set where a .02 resistor decided to open up causing just this problem - perfect BW picture, no color. Another had a coil with a broken wire.

Hitachi 46w500 went off tonight during storms, low voltage, wont turn back on


There might be a failure on the power supply or horizontal section of the TV even if you see some light inside the TV. Some of the voltages could be missing and that is why the TV fails to power up.
If you know how to use a multimeter, you could check all the fuses from your power supply.
Unplug your TV from the main AC line if you intend to do it yourself.
You will know how much you can do or it might safer to contact a tech.

Had a lightning storm,now brand new aircon wont restart,remote is ok


The electrical storm may have caused a power surge and burned out the circuit board. Especially, if the power went out briefly and then came right back on. Most manufacturers recommend turning the unit OFF during a power outage/electrical storm.

Hope this helps you.
