Lost Color after Speaker was too close to TV

I have a Panasonic 27 inch TV. I set an unshielded subwoofer too close to the TV. I removed the speaker after I turned the TV on an notice it had lost its color. The image is not distorted, but the TV is only black and white. Oddly enough, when the menu is pulled up the menu choices are in color. Is this problem fixable?

Good Day, Props123;
It sounds like you may have locked-up the micro, try unplugging TV from wall for 3-4 minutes, then replug. If the TV was magnetized (crt) the osd would also display no color.
Good Luck, Big Irish.

My color is off on my whole tv i have a 52''projection toshiba cinema series the old big style and was wondering how to adjust the colors so they match up


Sounds like what was wrong with mine! Take the remote and hit menu, then scroll to the Video Adjust button, then adjust the "convergence" or the color tone, brightness, contrast etc. My repair man did this and it helped get the picture much more life-like. He said over time they get out of line and just need a few adjustments. He just charged the $50 house call. Good luck, hope you can fix it.

I have a philips HD rear projection TV 60 in. inside there are six adjustment knobs. Three are color the other three are for brightness contrast and hue. Which is which Left to right


If yours is a rear projection TV the adjustment knobs on the focus block inside are screen (red, green, blue) and focus (red, green, blue). The ones you are referring to as color are the screen controls and they adjust the intensity of the color from each tube. The other set adjust the focus of each color. They are also not intended to be adjusted by the user. Unless major components have been changed these controls should not need adjustment. That is why they are inside the TV.

The colour on my TV is a reddish colour. Have tried the colour adjustment. Skin colours in particular.


simple. easy. you have 3 screen adjustments. red green blue. turn color all the way down. you should then get just a black and white picture, but in your case, it will still be reddish. behind the speaker grill is an access panel for screen adjustment. remove speaker grill. remove access panel. you will see a block assembly roughly 6 inches square with 6 knobs on it. 3 are for screen, 3 are for focus. adjust until you have a black and white picture. then go into menu and turn your color back up. enjoy!
