Lg 32lc2r, only showing picture in black and white

My LG tv is only showing black and white picture. the menus are in colour and the HDMI port shows picture in colour. The TV reception and AV ports seem to show the picture in black and white.

about 4 weeks ago the picture was colour and then all of a sudden it went to black and white.

Why could this be and how to I get colour back?

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.

I have a LG 32LC2R The HDMI connection has been acting up a lot late to where I have to turn the TV on and off a few times before it set's it's self up. I watch Foxtel mainly.

call a tv repair shop and ask what it will cost for an estimate to repair . so do it free if you have them fix it .if cost is higher than a new set then you decide which way to go .

Vertical black and white bars on lcd screen

I'm not too familiar with the LG brand, but if the onscreen stuff looks fine (Volume, menus, etc.) then the panel is OK. Try a picture source other than the one you are using now (Tuner, HDMI, VGA, etc.)

1) If it's the same across all of them, then you will need to replace the main board in the TV.

2a) If it only affects one input, it could either be your video source that is bad (which means TV is OK), or
2b) that certain input port on TV is bad, which would mean you either don't use that input any more, or you replace the main board in the TV.

HDMI, picture but no sound

Check the menus for both the DVD and TV to be sure that the audio is being sent thru the HDMI cable. Some sets and DVDs will separate the audio from the video be default unless told to send it down the HDMI. Update this if that does not resolve the problem and post the make and model of all gear in the chain.
