SCART on your THOMSON TV 32HC3101W
The SCART cable is the cable that allows an audio and video connection between your decoder and your television.

In this case, first check the connection of your SCART. Unplug it, clean its inputs and outputs, and reconnect it.
If this does not work, you must replace your cable.
You can find them easily in stores.
When you connect the new cable, be careful to turn off the TV and the decoder to avoid handling problems.

Do not panic ! Here is how to reset a normal color on your THOMSON TV 32HC3101W with standard TV settings.
Take the remote control of your THOMSON TV 32HC3101W, and press “Menu” then select “Setup”, which can also be called “Main Menu”, “System Menu”, “Tool Menu”, “Setup Menu” or “System Setup”.
There, go to “Image”.
You are in the menu that adjusts the image quality of your THOMSON TV 32HC3101W. Go to the saturation gauge.
You may have to go to a sub-menu called “Colors”.
If your image is in black and white, increase the saturation using the left and right directionnal buttons displayed on your THOMSON TV 32HC3101W.
If your image is too saturated in color, lower the saturation using the “left” and “right” directional buttons.
Then, if your television is in black and white, go to the “RGB” gauge of your THOMSON TV 32HC3101W, which can be divided into several gauges like “R1”, “R2”, “G1”, etc… Increase the gauges until the color is obtained.
It is not necessary to adjust these gauges if your television had the colors saturated. Finally, choose the display mode of the image you prefer for your THOMSON TV 32HC3101W.
You will have the choice between “Normal”, “Cinema”, “Dynamic, and others.” This can help you find the display mode best suited to your tastes.
Capacitors on THOMSON TV 32HC3101W
Finally, the capacitors may be at fault when the colors of your THOMSON TV 32HC3101W are not displayed correctly.
Notably at start-up, an image is displayed with colors that “drool”, then disappears after a little time of use.
If your capacitors work badly when cold, at start-up then, you have to change them. Capacitors are electrical components essential to the start-up of an electronic object.
They are made of an insulation and two metal wires.
Be careful, if you do not feel comfortable with the following procedure, bring yourself closer to an expert who will help you for a reasonable price.
Indeed, this procedure is highly risky as you may get electrocuted. Please unplug the power from your THOMSON TV 32HC3101W, and ask a professional to do it if you are not an expert about electricity.
To repair the capacitors, you must go to the back of your THOMSON TV 32HC3101W television and remove the protective cover if the capacitors are not already visible.
When you see them, have a pair of pliers, and separate them from the TV. Next, place the capacitors, which you can buy for the price of bread in a store, in the right place and with the help of a welder, assemble them to your THOMSON TV 32HC3101W. Wait a few minutes for the capacitors to cool down.
And now, the colors work again!
