RCA Television -- Lost Color

    I have an RCA Television 32" about five years old. I just moved, and
    upon plugging the thing into my digital cable box (DVR), it has no
    color now. All channels show fine, its just that they are in Black and
    White.

    I'm thinking something occurred during the move (obviously) and I keep
    hearing about a new color tuner. Do I need to buy one of these and can
    I install it myself?

    What about running the line through the VCR and using that as the
    tuner, possible?

    I just had this television fixed in the shop -- I really dont want to
    spend much more to have it fixed again.

    Thanks!

    jsears:
    Disconnect the digital cable box and connect your VCR two different ways....
    first connect the RF output (select the proper channel 3 or 4) to the
    antenna input of the television..... second connect the Video and Stereo
    Audio from the VCR to the television's A/V input. Insert a known, good
    movie into the VCR and play it. Try viewing it on your television on
    Channel 3 (or 4) and then try viewing it via the A/V input. If you have a
    good, color picture both ways then the problem must be in your digital cable
    box, or in the setup of it.
    If you are still confused, you should post the results of this test.

    Check the component input jacks to make sure that you did not damage the
    jack to pcb soldering connections. Try a new set of component cables, you
    know, th ered, blue, and green ones.

    He's fukindense. Probably has it in the green jack instead of the
    yellow jack.

    you just go somewhere else.... but do go away.
