    CAN YOU DIRECT ME TO A SITE WERE I CAN PURCHASE A COLOR WHEEL AND INSRUCTIONS ON REPLACING IT.

  • wboudreaux4 Jun 07, 2010

    WELL COULD THE BULB HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE PICTURE BEING BLACK AND WHITE, BECAUSE THERE WAS NO WHINNING SOUND THAT WAS HEARD AND I WATCHED TV ONE NIGHT THEN THE NEXT MORNING TURNED IT BACK ON AND NOTICED THE PICTURE WAS IN BLACK AND WHITE. WOULD THAT STILL BE THE COLOR WHEEL THAT NEEDS CHANGING.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. As you have already checked the lamp and its working fine so that means that ballast is only working which is the power supply source for the lamp. With that being said it seems to be the color wheel that has gone bad and should be replaced to resolve this issue. If you have also heard a loud whine like sound earlier then it is the color wheel that should be replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

    Thanks for accepting the solution. If there was no whine like sound then yes it could be a bad bulb.

Black and white picture with red lines vibrating with sound.


More info would be nice. Are you using HDMI or Component cables. If it is component cables (red, blue, green for video white and red for audio) Check your red and blue connection. Green alone will give you a black and white picture.
If you are using an HDMI cable, replace the cable to see if this changes anything or if you have another tv swap cables to see if problem stays with tv or moves to another tv.

I have a JVC LT 32 EX 18 TV. When connecting my laptop over HDMI, playing on a playstation or WII the sound and picture work perfectly. When I want to watch normal TV over cable though the problems start...


If the rear inputs work consider connection for the channels with a box using one of the rear inputs--sounds like a tuner related issue and going to the rear inputs bypasses that.

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.
