  1. We have an ancient Zenith--SJ7775BG from 1991 and it's still going
    like a champ. But suddenly we found ourselves watching black and white
    tv, while the menu comes up in color and looks like it always has. A
    DISH/VCR/receiver/CDplayer are part of the set up and for local
    stations we must use a 'rabbit ears' antenna--we have no cable. We
    think that the greys in the screen look slightly colored, some are
    brown grey, some are cool grey. We've gone through the menu and
    checked the color settings, everything seems to be okay. We cannot
    figure out why we cannot get a color picture, especially because the
    menu is coming up in vivid color. Any suggestions would be greatly
    appreciated. We no longer have the original remote but that has never
    been a problem in the past and the one we've been using seems to work

    :) Linda

    Rodger and Linda:
    It sounds like you have done the proper "home" troubleshooting with the menu
    settings and controls.
    You would be best advised to TAKE your television to a service shop for at
    the very least a repair cost estimate so you can make an intelligent repair
    decision with facts instead of internet or phone guesses. Nothing more you
    can do at home..... a shop tech needs to actually see the television in
    order to give you a halfway accurate guess about the repair cost.
