Mine did the same thing this week. It was caused by the white ribbon cord. The cord got bent over and over as you flip the tv open and broke the wires inside. The cord is soldered directly to the circuit boards on both ends of the unit. I do not think an average joe can fix it because it requires soldering a new cord to the circuit boards on both ends. I am going to buy a new unit for around 200$ and install it.

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.

No picture but have sound


RDD6 - I had the same problem with my AVT-1498. Took it to the repair shop who told me it would cost hundreds to repair. I figured I could find a replacement crt for less but was wrong - they don't make these tv's anymore, and really don't make any 12v crt's anymore period. So I decided on a 15" 12v ready LCD model which fit the hole where the old crt TV use to be. I needed to rig it to hold the LCD bracket but that wasn't too difficult. Then just hooked the wires back up. Good luck with your situation.

No Color on my Audiovox AVT-1498


That model has a history of bad solder connections in various circuits. I would not be surprised if that is the case with the color circuitry. You may get the color to come and go by slapping the sides of the TV or lifting one corner about 1/2 inch and dropping it. If it does, it is a bad connection and possibly fixable. If no change is noted, it could be a bad semiconductor or capacitor, etc., causing the symptoms. For that size set, it would probably be cheaper to replace with a different brand. Toshiba has a nice 14" model IMO.

T.V. overheating in our conversion van


If you suspect overheating then try removing the back and clean out with a long, wooden handled artists brush. Make sure the children are not about and try it with the back off, but do not touch things inside. You may blow cold air if you see what is overheating. See how long it works OK for. If it works without going off (assuming it was very dusty inside), then replace the back. If it needed a fan to keep it working you may find out what needs replacing.
