Metz CRT TV G3478 color problem in PAL mode

Hi I have this TV about 4 years, recently when I turn on the TV I see black and white picture and the colors is somtimes flickers. after the TV working on about two hours the colore return and I see great picture, it's happend for the RF and SCART (video) inputs. If I change the input signal from PAL to NTSC (change the dvd or satellite receiver definitions)I will get a nice color picture, It seems like the TV does not detecte the input signal even though it config to PAL method and only after it warm up it start to detect it. Do you have any idea how this problem can be fix? Thanks Oren

I see from your profile that you have not specified your location which make it tricky to be sure which standard you should be using.

Not color

Hi mcm406,
If you already tried the system set-up to your menu (NTSC,PAL,SECAM,AUTO) but no luck and still the picture is black and white locate this parts on the board
This is 3.58Mhz crystal that responsible for producing color on your unit and other tv. Replaced it and your unit will back to normal again.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Our Jensen has no color. We have picture and sound, but in black and white. The display settings on the screen are in color. Anything I can do? The model is TS2750J. It's only 2 years old!

There are different types of color settings and systems - NTSC, PAL and SECAM. Are you sure the correct one is selected ? If yes then the problem is in the decoder and must be replaced since the chip cannot be fixed. This is a job for a pro.

17 yr. old 35" RCA loses color intermittently. Picture & sound ok

Three guns Red Blue and Green in the picture tube of an old CRT set. If one of the guns goes out it effects that color. Sounds like one of the guns inside of the tube is going out, To costly to replace for such an old antilog set that will have to have a convertor box next month anyway.

In black and white? If there is a red and yellow, white and yellow, or red white and yellow on the tv end make sure the colors are matched correctly. Try on channel 3. Try on another tv. Is the camera from a foreign country? (Might be PAL, not NTSC.) If so, there should region menu in the camera to change this. For video, you have to shoot it in the mode of the TV you want to watch it on. North American TV's are NTSC, so shoot with the camera in that mode. If you shoot in PAL mode, a north american TV will show a black and white rolling picture. Just about everywhere else in the world is some version of PAL.

Perfect picture on TV, DVD and VCR, but no color means you have selected the wrong color system.Since you are in the UK, make sure that the VCR Color system is also set to PAL. Perhaps it is wrongly set to SECAM?
