Question about Televison & Video
I turned my tv on this afternoon and found all my virgin media channels are black and white.
If I turn on the tv without the virgin media box I get hazy/fuzzy pictures from analogue tv which are mostly black and white but do have colour sometimes/on some channels.
I'm not sure if the problem is the tv (a panasonic) or the virgin media (supplied via fibre optic cable).
At first I thought it was the Virgin as the tv screen is obviously still able to play in colour on the analogue (not all the time but we don't have an aerial plugged in for this due to using the cable tv service so that could be why on the analogue?).
I rang Virgin who told me to turn everything off, unplug the scart leads and blow into them then plug back in and turn back on. They said they were sending a signal to my box. This made no difference so the woman said to try again in half an hour and call them back to book an engineer if not....
As we work every day it's nearly impossible to find a time someone can be in if we book an engineer so I'm hoping someone has a suggestion?
Most likely the problem is due to a "lock up" you need to reset the system, unplug the set, and look in the back panel (I am assuming it is a digital (flat screen tv?) for a small (usuall) red nipple, again making sure the power is unplugged, depress the nipple with a bll point pen for about 5 seconds, wait a few minuets, and plug the set back in, you will most likely need to go to your menu for set up again, but you will be starting with a clean slate (so to sleak) and the tuner should then correctly pass the signal though
