Toshiba 50L2200u no color

I'm having the same exact problem. I bought a Toshiba L2200U 50 inch and it works great with cable, but the DVD player only works in black and white. I've tried different DVD players and cables, but still no luck. Did you find a solution?

Won't play in color

If set it is hooked to works ok then look in the DVD player menu (this problem is listed under DVD players) for a setting that will make picture have no color (perfect black and white image).

If no, you may have a circuit problem in the unit and unless it is an expensive and newer one---replace the entire player.

Screen is Perfect just Black and White only...No Color

well a dvd player is only going to playback the media it is reading. So if the dvd is a reproduction of a b/w western then b/w is correct but if you play a dvd from the present then it should be in color unless the tv it is connected to is faulty. Try connecting to another tv to see if problem repeats on another tv

Trying to hook up a Philips 22'' TV to Sony CD/DVD player. Need help. I have a Red, White. and Black connector to go from TV to CD Player. Do I need anytning else? TV model # 22PFL3504D/F7

Usually the Color Red and White is for the audio channels and yellow is for the video but in your case you find black instead of yellow.

So you do the connection as per the instruction given below.

Only view in black and white on my ilo DVD R04

I was having the same problem. My DVDR04 was working fine. And after about four months of not using it I desired to use it. Turned it on and everything was in black in white. After searching on line and e-mailing Ilo which I never got an answer. I finally tried using an RCA video (Yellow) cable on the line out video jacks, replacing the line out S-Video jack/cable and it worked fine back in color right away.

Yes there is video format for our TV and dvd players. NTSC & PAL...

EVEN IF, THE DVD PLAYER SETTING IS KEPT AS PAL, AND WE INSERTING THE CORRECT CD OR DVD AND ALSO IT SHOW BLACK & WHITE PICTURE, ETC.... so please check your video system in TV, DVD PLAYER and check the CD or DVD you are inserting is of same video format you have set in DVD player.

DVD player only plays DVD in black and white - what's wrong?

I'm not sure what you mean by digibox. Under what conditions are you able to see things in color? Is a digibox a seperate device you can get to work with the same connection as your player? If one device displays color on the same connection and another doesn't then that seems to rule out the television being the problem. Can you clarify a little more?

Color to black and white and back again

Since you're using a composite cable (yellow RCA) that carries both luma (brightness) and chroma (color) information, it's not the cable that is the problem.

That means it's either the DVD player itself, or the TV. If you have another video device (VCR, etc) that you can connect to the TV, try that. If the other device also goes from color to black and white, then it's your TV. Otherwise the problem is your DVD player.

Since your TV only has mono audio (white RCA, but no red) I would recommend getting a new TV if the TV is to blame.

DVP642 DVD Player is only working in Audio mode

Mine does the same. Cannot get a picture using the Yellow RCA output. Use an S-video cable if you can - it should still work. If you get a black and white picture using the S-video output, go to MENU > VIDEO page and change the output from PyBywhateveritis to S-video and the color will come back. I only found out mine was broken when I needed to use the s-video cable for something else and tried switching to the Composite Video (RCA) to no avail no matter how many cables or TV inputs I tried.
