If you're using the S-video connection, one of the wires in the cable may be disconnected or broken... or maybe the S-video connector on either end is broken.

I have a Fisher DVD-S1100 DVD Video Player. Several years old. While it still plays DVDs, the color is gone and display is simply gray and white. Is this a common failure mode (it is not listed in...


Does your TV have two
separate video inputs, or just two sets of video input jacks and only ONE
video input

Try disconnecting your VCR from the TV (or turning it off) and see if the
color comes back on your DVD.

Also make sure that your video connections are properly connected(check your manual for how to connect the AV cable)

Also, try playing the DVD in your computer and see if it is black and
white on your computer monitor too. If so, then it is supposed to be in
black and white.

Try double checking your connection on both ends (from the dvd player and to your tv). Be sure the colors of the cable (e.g. red, white, yellow) are inserted in the correct place (according to color) on both the dvd player and the tv. Also check to make sure when you turn your dvd player on and the tv on that your tv is on the correct input. The tv usually shows which input is being used where the cables are connected (e.g. audio/video 1, hdmi 1, etc). If the tv does not specify the different inputs where the cables are inserted, use the tv remote to go through the different inputs by pressing the input button until you have either selected the correct one or gone through all of the available inputs. Be sure to allow enough time (10-15 seconds) for each input to register any kind of signal, and also be sure that the dvd player is on before searching through the inputs.

Why does my dvd player not in color?

Its due to incorrect color system setting.Try changing the color Mode of the DVD from Menu of it or from the TV (like PAL/NTSC/Auto).Ensure both DVD and TV color system is unique. Better choose Auto from the DVD player

Colour gone

Did you possibly switch where your wires are hooked up? I just tried hooking my player up to a new tv and I had a black and white picture at one point. Make sure your video wires hook to the proper colored ports.

Color Faded

Hi Christine,
The company that made these has gone out of business, so you cannot get a replacement. However, I have a used 702 which I can sell to you for $45+shipping. It has all the parts, in original box.
I also have a used PDV-705 (this model has a remote control, plus S-Video & more), which I will sell for $60+ shipping. Both have been thoroughly tested and all works great. I can email you photos. Email me at
good luck and warm regards,
