Sounds like a power supply issue. Does the power indicator light up? Can you hear a click when the power button is pressed?

SOURCE: TV will not turn on. Clicking noise heard from inside.

These sets use what is called a "switch mode" power supply. In order for them to work there is a capacitor that "kick" starts the process. If that cap goes bad, the power supply will not start up. Also, there are other caps inside that maintain the oscillation required for the power supply to work. There are 2 options for you here.

1) Replace the entire power supply module.
2) Repair the existing one.

Sicne these types of power supplies are not the easies to diagnose or repair, I would suggest that you replace the power supply module. That should resolve the problem.

Please note that there are other causes of the reported problem, but hte power module becoming defective is the most common.

Turned my tv on and for some reason the DVD source is in black and white and controller not workin for it, TVs colour for other outputs and controller works only DVD that doesn't .


If you're using component cabling (red, green, blue cables) a black and white picture will occur when only the green cable is plugged in.

If you're using HDMI cabling, try a different HDMI port and see if your color comes back.

If not, unplug the set from power for a few minutes, plug it back in and see if problem persists.

If you still have the same problem, check the DVD player on another TV. If it shows color on a different TV, then your TV will need a replacement digital board which we can check availability on once we have a specific model number. If it's black and white on a different TV, then you have a problematic DVD player.

My dvd player is hooked up to t.v. but only plays movies in black/white


How is the DVD player connected to the TV? If you are using component video, check that the cables are connected correctly.

If you switch the order on two of the cables, the black and white result is common. So double-check that the red, blue and green connections (RPbPy) have been connected to both devices in the same order. Next try a different set of component video cables, in case one of the wires is damaged.

If possible, try a different type of connection to rule out a damaged input/output. Connect the TV to a different DVD player or the DVD player to another TV, if possible, to rule out similar damage.

Please add a comment with the connection type for additional support. I hope this helps.

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.

Black and white picture


Try going into player's menu, and set video out or TV type to NTSC.
It might have switched to PAL, or disc is PAL and player is set to any.

DVD Plays in Black and White


Depending what cables you have, try plugging only the yellow cable into "video out", I previously had red, white, and yellow cables plugged into "comopents out" and only got black and white. Doing only the yellow into video out gave me color.
