Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hi , I`m JackPerhaps I can help you with this problem , a few questions coming up and please note that it may take a few minutes between replies;
What is connected to this tv ?Cable box,satellite,dvd,games etc. ?
O.k then it could have been an idea to try something else for a test and make sure the cable box r the wiring is not the problem .
What type of cables /connection do you have between the cable box and tv ?Is it color coded component cables or a coaxial in the TV's antenna /cable terminal ?
o.k then I take it that this is a dvd/vcr player and recorder .
Just for a test try to bypass the dvd and connect directly into the tv or use a piece of coaxial cable and connect another one from the cable box directly to the TV's antenna/ cable input then set your tv to channel 3 or 4
Just like vcr`s used to be connected .
The idea is to bypass the dvd and those connections to eliminate a possible culprit
Right now you are using composite red/white/yellow terminals and cables , is that correct ?
Not the component (input 2 on the tv ) Y-Pb-Pr terminals ?
tried it what ?
bypass or another cable ?
if you just play a dvd , do you also lose the color ?
o.k now try the dvd player , play a disc and see what happens
O.k then if the dvd stays fine then have that cable box replaced
If you start losing color there as well then we are talking about repairs to the tv and playing around the TV's chroma circuits definitely is not for the DIYer , you need very good knowledge of those TV's
