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.

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.

Hi there,
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.

Cheers

Make sure there are not two video outputs emanating from the DVD player - this is the classic reason behind b/w picture.

DVD Playback is only Black & White


Different areas use different colour systems. The most common types being PAL and NTSC. What I think you might have done is changed the colour type setting to one that is not compatible with your TV. If you have the manual look up the colour settings. If you haven't got the manual look around the main menu for them. If all else fails use the factory reset.

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.
