Hello Mustang Cathy,
You have connection problem in Video with TV & Home Theater. This error comes mostly wrong combination of "Component Video" connections. Kindly check that one color pin must be connected with same color pin at other unit. Here is 2 pictures for further assistance. Hope problem will be solved and you will enjoy true color picture on tv.

My dvd player keeps saying 'incorrect disk' why? and what can i do to stop it?


I don't understand your problem.
Is it the TV or is it the DVD? You say you tried other dvds and the problem is still there. Looks like the TV is the problem. Sometimes it's hard to help people when they only mention on screen issues. How can first DVD say 'incorrect disk' and then another dvd, and another still say 'incorrect disk'? It just doesn't seem to make sense. Is the contents on the disk a computer recorded movie, film or home movie? If so, you have to record the film on the disk with a format that accept the DVD. Could the DVD be a Blu-Ray, can it play a number of video formats, DVD, DivX, KviD DVD, etc.? Try first with a purchased movie DVD disc, if it doesn't work, then the DVD is faulty. DVD players these days are meant to play a wide range of video format, including CD discs. If you have an old DVD player, you may not play latest discs. But if the DVD is incorporated with the TV, then you have to insert a new movie and see if it plays. Go to an appliance or TV DVD store and talk to them. Or you can purchase a new movie and insert it in. If it doesn't work, you can always return it. As you said, you've tried different DVDs, sounds like it is a separate DVD player. If so, try other movie discs. I get the same warning only when I insert discs with movies I recorded on my computer, such as Pinnacle video editor.

I just got a new player. Worked perfectly in the shop but brought it home and have a problem. After plugging it in it plays the DVD fine EXCEPT, the picture is in black and white. This was not a problem...


Select the type of video your TV requires within the menu of the DVD player and match it.
If the TV requires CVBS input and you are supplying S-Video, then you will get a monochrome picture because the chroma content is not being used.
Hope that helps.

Connect one end of the VIDEO

jack on the back of the TV. Then connect
one end the AUDIO (red and

L and R(left and right) jacks on the rear

I have a Philips 32'' LCD, when I hook a DVD it plays in black and white. It will play in color in side connecter only. Please help


The side connectors are usually composite connectors meaning the have a Yellow-video Red-right audio and White-left audio connectors. Now when you are connecting them to the back and you connect the Yellow wire from the DVD player to a component input which have Green,Blue and Red connectors to the green connector, you will get a picture, but it will be in black and white. Please take moment to rate my answer. Thanks...

"Display connected non-HDCP compliant" error


The HDMI cable was causing "Display connected non-HDCP compliant" error message to appear.
When I reconnected my DVD to TV using regular cable with 3 color connectors(i don't know what is the proper name for that cable) that error message no longer appears on my screen and I was able to watch my movie normally.

There is an input imbalance. Either try connecting your cables to different inputs on your TV, or try connecting to different outputs on your DVD player. (Only worry about the yellow video cable bit initially). Alternatively, try a different cable type; you'll have some ins and outs that don't use RCA connectors.

Yes, it's not uncommon. It also depends a bit on the TV. Some are better than others. There is a connection between price and quality, although it is not absolute. What kind of equipment are you using? DVD, satelite tuner etc, and how is it connected? (scart etc)

Colors can be adjusted from the menus (se your manual for reference). I've never seen a TV that don't need color adjusting before it gets good, as color experience will vary with room coloring and light, etc.
