Hi , I`m Jack
Perhaps 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. ?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Cable box
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

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 ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The coaxial cable goes into the cable box then I have RCA plugs going from the cable box to the DVD player then more RCA plugs going from the DVD player back to the TV
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I had DirecTV this is how it was hooked up I just change the Comcast this week and that's when the problem started
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

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

TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

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 ?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago

TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

bypass or another cable ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

if you just play a dvd , do you also lose the color ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I bypass the DVD player put the RCA cables to Yellow red and white directly into the TV and the same results I had to I had color at times then went back to black and white
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

o.k now try the dvd player , play a disc and see what happens

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Right now the DVD is in color
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

O.k then if the dvd stays fine then have that cable box replaced

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Ok thank you
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

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
