Bad tuner hi, i have a problem with my 5 year old tv. my tv makes a snapping noise as it jumps from black and white to color and back again and again and again. then some times it will stop and the picture will be fine. i had a repair man come and take a look and he said the the tuner is going bad. he also said the part is'nt available any more. any idea if a used tuner is out there or a new one for that matter? thanks

Lost color


It could be the color processor module, could be locked up, or your tuner is going bad. First thing to do is unplug the AC cord, from the the AC outlet for about 40 Minutes and that will reset the color processor. if you still have problems, then bypass the tuner, and go directly to the video input with a DVD player, or Video game player "360 x box" or anything that you can hook up to the video input. Make sure to put your TV in Video mode, if you have color now , than you have a bad tuner, if it is still black and white, than in is the color module that is bad, or your color control is turn all the way down.

I have a 9-month old Sanyo LCD 32K40L colored TV. The TV reception just became black and white. This is the first time this happened.


How is the set hooked up? Check the cables on the back of the set. If you are hooked up with component cables (red, blue, and green) make sure the cables are good and that they're not disconnected from the set or cable box or whatever. Plugging in the green cable only will give you black and white. If you are using the tuner (use the TV remote to change channels) then you have a weird problem which may be a bad tuner or maybe a bad main board if the input signal checks ok. Hope this helps.

We have a Samsung DLP about 5 years old. We noticed that the fan or some sort of hummning sound was coming from the back louder than normal while TV is on. Then suddenly the picture would start to freeze...


This tv have a colors wheel,hear loud motor noises,humming noises,squiling or grinding noises,have pictures black and white.All these causes are by the colors wheel is worn out, warp rubbing against it motor or fiber plastic glass briddle about to brake aparts.Don't turn this tv on anymore until,u change the colors wheel or u will damage the projection engine.The colors wheel are hard to change for amatur and hobiest.Because involved taking out many machanical parts,before even can come to the colors wheel to take out and change it.The best course to to hire a Tv Tech.to do this job.The price colors wheel part and labors.Awhile back was about $500-550,now??

Color image is coming out black and white


does it happen on the any input or just on tv setting?
if it's judt tv then sounds like the tuner, if it's on any input, then the video chip or a decoder on that board.

Screen shows only black and white


Color wheels do go bad quite frequently, if you got 5 years out of the original, believe me, that's good.
The color wheel is attached be a bearing, like a fan and when the bearing starts to ware out the color wheel on the shaft starts to wobble and that's what you hear, they spin I believe around 3000rpm. Try contacting your servicer again, don't be mad, maybe he'll be kind enough just to charge you for the color wheel. I'm sorry, but that's the best advice I can give you..Good Luck...

Color change


It sounds as though you may either have a bad video chip or a tuner problem. To make for certain you don't have a cable problem, disconnect the cable from the set and reconnect it. ( a looses or bad cable line could also cause the picture to turn to b&w). I hope this helps in some manner. nfortunataly, with a problem like yours, there are many possibilities that could be a factor.

Picture flips from color to black and white continuously


I believe your set has a loose conection that needs to be resoldered ,every time you hit it reacts and that is good,you need to use a wooden or rubber handle to tap in the main board,around the tuner and in different areas until it reacts,be attentive when it does so you can flip the board and resoldered the area that made it react,once the problem is corrected you need to resoldered any other overheated areas and there should be a few in your set,check the grounds in the tuner(where the coax goes in the inside,is a silver box),the horizontal driver transformer and output transformer.Be careful while you do this and stay away from the thick red wire going to the back of the picture tube specially when the set is on. Let Us know how it goes or if you need more information.
