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
If you have it connected to the 'antenna input' on your TV, change the channel up or down, and then back to 3/4 as appropriate. Sometimes the signal from the machine does not match exactly what the TV is looking for, but the TV will figure it out after you change the channel up or down. The AFC (automatic frequency control) will then try to re-tune the channel. If you have it connected using the composite, and r/w audio, then you likely have a problem inside the DVR. tom
The split screen (identical display left & right) indicates that your DVD is on Progressive Scan.
P scan refers to progressive scanning mode and is not an
indication of something broken but rather is a feature. What you can
do is look over your remote and check if it's got a PS or PScan button.
Pressing the button should revert to the single display. If there is
no such button, pls check your menu or settings and should be there
somewhere. At other times, there is a small hard switch at the rear (or
front) of the player itself just for this purpose.
On your concern for no color, determine the color system of the disc you're playing, the setting of your DVD player as well as the color system of your TV. They should be the same. The 3 systems are NTSC, PAl and SECAM.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back should you have other concerns.
I finally, after several months of just giving up, figured out how to get my Protron 007 DVD player to work. I hope this works for you. I have a Sanyo TV with the video controls on the front. Here are the instructions that worked for me.
1. Turn on TV
2. switch TV to video
3. Wait for "Protron" screen (Try the PSCAN button it doesn't show.)
4. Press setup and a menu will appear with 4 icons: Language, TV, a Hammer, and an Exit icon.
5. The only two icons I needed to use were TV and the Hammer.
6. TV icon: 4 choices: a) TV TYPE = choose 4.3 LB (mine was not set there); b) TV SYSTEM = NTSC; c) VIDEO = CBBS + S - video; d) DIGITAL OUT = SPDIF/RAW.
7. HAMMER icon: 4 choices: a) PARENTAL - 8; b) PASSWORD - I didn't choose one; c) ANGLE MARK: ON; d) DEFAULT: Read.
Suggestion: If that doesn't work trying playing around with the settings to see if you can get the right combination.
I hope I made your day. I know how frustrating this can be.
Are you using an RGB cable?(red green blue)
Try playing with both ends of the cable, or replacing it.
If it still doesn't work you might have a problem with the RGB output on the player, try using S-video or analog video.
Try using the DVD on another TV, just to make sure.
Good luck, let us know what happened.
