Hello judithprust

The IC (integrated circuit) that controls color might be bad or the filter for the color burst might be defective. In either case a qualified TV repair person should be enlisted to fix this problem. The color burst signal uses vector mathematics to control the color output of your device, it the color burst is removed the picture will display a monochromatic (black and white) picture.

Thank you,

Alba tv, Suddenly gone to black and white with no colour on any channel or when playing DVD, but blank blue screen when configuring, is there a setting or switch somewhere I need to use?


Enter into menu, go to picture settings, and select the system settings option, and make this adjust to "Auto". If it too do not help you, contact any service technician. Will be a fault in the main board. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

Magnovox dv220 mw9 plays in black and white only


Hello
The output signal's colour system to this player is NTSC. Just look whether your TV is NTSC system compactable. Check whether the disc is recorded in any other colour system, like PAL or SECAM. These are the reasons for absence of colour to the picture. Check whether the colour control of the TV is at minimum.

Canon i9100: colors printing incorrectly


I've had the Canon i9100 since 2003 and have excellent photo printing results. In 2009 it started playing up and I'd gt some banding. More recently, black didn't want to print. It was as though the black ink in the print head got dry some days.

April 2010 - The colours started printing strange and I bought a brand new print head and installed it. Only takes a minute. Still had an issue with photo printing. Black and white was excellent but colours weren't true.

Found advice online to try cleaning the print head to print head carrier electrical contacts by rubbing them with a rubber eraser.

I did that and now I'm getting perfect colour photo prints again.

I had been thinking about buying a new A3+ printer but this is old printer is now working as good as new.

Black and white only


Well - it's fixed - but no thanks to anything I did.  It's just all of a sudden working fine again.  I tried three different dvd's the other night, and all were black and white.  But last night the same dvd's were back to colour.  Who knows?
But thanks for asking.

PANASONIC TV, TH-42PX60


If it's just one video plug, then perhaps you have to set av5 as being in colour somwhere in the menus.  If you require three wires for the pictures, as blue, green, and red, then make sure they aren't in the wrong ports.
Good luck.
