    Thanks for your suggestions. I have tried them and they did not cure the problem. The solution was a mistake by myself - I had been watching a recording and when I switched back to TVmode I selected TV instead of TV/DVD.

Hi there,

If this has suddenly happened and you haven't changed any cables or connections, I would simply switch the TV off and disconnect it from the power supply for a minute or two, then try again. I've seen this problem on quite a few AV and BV Toshiba series and it's usually just a software/firmware "crash". Disconnecting the power supply will reboot the firmware on the TV when you switch back on.

If this doesn't work, try re-installing the TV from within the on screen menu. This option can be found in the SETUP MENU under INSTALLATION > FIRST TIME INSTALLATION. Selecting this option will clear all of the settings in the TV and you will need to run through the setup the same as you did when you first bought the TV. If you are unsure how to do this, please let me know and I will provide step-by-step instructions.

While the TV power is switched off, I would also suggest disconnecting and reconnecting the cables from your external devices (DVD / Cable / Sat, etc) at the rear of the TV.

Hope this helps. Please try the suggestions above then let me know if you need further assistance by clicking on "Add a Comment" below your question.

Regards,
BElectric

My Toshiba model 56hm66 has suddenly become a black & white tv. Any suggestions???


Ask for a reduction in TV license fee!
Have you tried a game or DVD through the TV? If also B/W then it sounds like colour electronics have failed.

Toshiba Dvd won't work properly with my new TV


if your old tv was an analog one you need a digital converter box to change to the new signal.. new tvs wont recognize the analog signal..temporarily you may be able to use your laptops' dics player as a player for your discs..

DVD picture is in Black & White only.


Are you trying to play an NTSC disc in a PAL player, If so,your player has a switch or
on-screen setting to select the output format for NTSC discs,

Or maybe you have connected one of the component outputs (Y, R-Y, or B-Y) of
your DVD player to the composite input of your TV.

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.

Colour gone


Did you possibly switch where your wires are hooked up? I just tried hooking my player up to a new tv and I had a black and white picture at one point. Make sure your video wires hook to the proper colored ports.

DVD appears to not be reading or recognizing discs


Unfortunately your DVD drive mechanism looks to have bit the big one.

You can try taking it apart, removing the top of the drive and cleaning the lense. Work it up and down. Use a q-tip with a little squirt of windex on it.

Reassemble and try it again. If you get the same results, it's time for a new DVD player.
