Re: no color

Make sure the player isn't in PAL versus NTSC.  This is found in the General Setup Page by clicking setup on the remote.

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.

You haven't given the exact model number ot your LG DVD, so I can only give you a general solution to this problem.
Get into its meny, surf through, come to SYSTEM adjust window, change the system. If a NTSC system recorded disc played with PAL system adjustment with DVD, there will be only black/white pciture, and vice versa.
Adjust it to the color system thathave been adopted your country. this must solve the problem. OK.

VHS plays in colour and DVD plays in black and white.

there is a circuit in the color section to put the tv to black and white if the color subcarrier is missing from the broadcast signal.
it is called a color killer and needs to be adjusted.
it is for a technician to do.
it operates off the 3.58mhz color subcarrier.

Sony DVD player color problem

All These units need servicing, They all are having problems with the video output circuit. It could be a coupling capacitor or the video chip itself heating up and distorting the output after short playing periods.This may be a simple fix of changing the output coupling capacitors. But it also may be some internal distortion in the chip. These unit need to be tested on a oscilloscope and check out in the video out input section to look for possible component failures.You should contact a service center that will test your unit and give you an evaluation of the cost effectiveness of a repair. Hope this helps you with your problems.
