Question about Audio Players & Recorders
The unit has a color controller PC board that switches between BW and Color. The fact that you still show color at all indicates the circuit is complete and the BW exists independently by itself. In some cases, the problem is due to connecting cables. Change out the current set and see if that presents a solution. Make certain all connections are firm and tight. Other than that, internal data switches pose a problem and the circuit needs to be traced using test equipment to locate the problem.

Precorded discs, or copies made on a computer? Other than that, getting service will take a miracle, as the company is out of business...accordianman

Make sure that the color control level is set to the default or 50% to start with. This should be in the Video menu.
The colour for the tuner and for the encoded base-band video uses a circuit area called the colour demodulator. It is possible that this cirucuit area has failed and needs servicing.

My sister-in-law has exactly the same problem and is a common one with this unit.
I've spoken to a technician who says that:
1. Hitachi are withdrawing from Australia and there are VERY limited service centres left
2. The problem is a chip on the main board and depending when the TV was made will determine whether the chip is a plu-in or soldered on to the main board - if it's the latter, you'll be up for a main board at around $400
3. He couldn't get the price of the plug-in chip because he couldn't get through to Hitachi.
