If it is connected with coax cable i would first try removing the cable and reinserting it, try putting the channel switch on 3 instead of 4, or 4 instead of 3, if this does not work try a different coaxial cable

Installed a new set top box last night and all the channels are black and white - no colour at all - confused!!

Check your cables between the receiver and your TV to make sure the colors match. If you are using a component cable (green, blue, red, white, red), not matching colors at both ends will give you what appears to be a black and white picture. I hope this helps.

Make sure you have an ant. connected to the ant. INPUT on the>> 110 box <<then take a cable from the OUTPUT of >>110 box<< and connect it to the >> INPUT<< on your TV.
If you connect box to TV with a cable wire then put TV on channel 3 or 4
If you connect BOX to TV with the
Yellow red and white wires then put TV on VIDEO rather than channel 3 or 4 !

Samsung HLC473W have picture but not color, How


I'm not familiar with this TV, but normally it's either a lose connection (scart), make sure all your connections are pushed in firmly. Or you have the incorrect input selected on the TV. You're looking for a circle or square with an arrow in it on your remote; press it to cycle through your inputs. All this is assuming you have a set top box, sky, cable or pvr etc connected to your TV.

I have a aiko set top box receiver, installed, we have pictiue, sound but no colour only black and white, what wrong?


Hiya Margy,
I know your query was 6 months ago,but I had a similar problem with connecting an Aiko SD set top box to our second older tv set & after 3 months only recently found the solution!
Our problem? When connected the tv picture went green! Nobody,including Tandy staff,knew what to do! (We also have an Aiko STB connected to our newer tv and it worked fine from day one.)
Anyway,it took 3 months but I finally worked it out.
Our problem was settings on the TV,NOT the STB.
Go to your TV's COLOR settings,pick a setting called 'COLOR SYSTEM' and change from 'ntsc' or 'pal'(depending on what country you're in) to AUTO.
It isn't enough to change the tv system on the STB's SETUP menu,or to change it on the TV's SYSTEM settings,you have to change it in the TV's COLOUR settings as well. Change colour system to 'auto' and see if that helps.(And of course,change all system settings on both the tv & the STB to AUTO or the right system for your country if you haven't done so) Hope this helps! Good luck!

Conversion boxes-Do I need one with an outside atenna?


you will need a converter box if you do not have a digital ready television. If you have a digital television, then no you do not need one. make sure of the type antenna you have, as there are uhf only and vhf only and combined uhf/vhf. if you only have a uhf only antenna you may be missing out on channels.

Normally, there are 2 ways to hook these devices up. One is the component cable that has 3 colors, red white and yellow. these color codes match an aux. input on the TV (or vid1 or vid2) You need to change the TV input to whichever you used by the remote or maybe under Ch2 (4,3,2,vid2, vid1, aux,111,110,etc) The other way is to use the round 4-5 pin S-video instead of the yellow jack, that is self explanetory. The 3rd way and this depends on your TV and receiver is to use the HDMI, composite or DVI cable connection. These are only for Hi def players and will be either a large multi-pinned computer type plug, 5 colored/lead "octopus" cable, or a smaller D shaped high density cable with the row of contacts inside the plug. In any case you need to tell the TV which input you are using.
Once you get the TV to show a picture of the receiver, then you autoprogram the receiver with the remote under setup or other menu.

Digital converter box


Greetings kathy76turne,

In February 2009 you will be unable to receive ANY analog television signals therefore the digital converter box will be a necessity to receive any over the air broadcasts.

I am unable to answer the question about the mini van's electrical capability, however you might find the following link handy to get more information.
