All color has gone black and white including all screens including ones that are usually blue are all now black and white. The recorded items also play black and white as well as the channels tuned in through the DVD player.
Has anyone ran into this? If so any fix or time to get a newer model?
Thanks for all the help.

It sounds a bit like you lost the Chroma signal on an S-Video cable. Are you using one? If so, change it out.

Evil is charming and beautiful. It makes you doubt yourself. It asks for one small compromise after another until it whittles you down, and it functions best when no one believes in it.-JOA

Thanks to all that replied. I can always count on those here at AVS forms. It is a bad S-video cable. tested using a yellow RCA cord and that did the trick. will replace the S-video cord. Maybe a better TV down the road.
Thanks again!!!!
