Re: Picture in Black & White

If you are using composite cables (yellow,red & white), make sure your yellow (video cable) is into the yellow output. if you plugged the wire into the green on the back of the dvd it will give you a black & white picute. But if it is in the yellow then you most likely have a problem with the dvd player that will need to be taken to a service center.

While watching a DVD my Sony DVP-NS30P failed completely, presumably the power supply. Is this common and is it relativly straight forward to fix? Thanks Neil

Yes! the power supply is the issue, I have found the main filter capacitor in some units opens stopping the power flow, if that is the case the repair is simple to correct.

Why is it that some dvds only play in black n white?Is there any way to fix this?

Your solution may be to connect your cables to the front of your tv, instead of the back as found here:

Sony also supports this solution, as found here:

Sony also advises it may be due to a faulty cable or if the signal is being transmitted via a vcr.

As per this site:

if your s-video cable going to your tv is loose or is faulty, then only 2 of the 4 pins are communicating with the tv, thus resulting in a black and white picture.

Depends on what you paid for it. The error is an indication that either the laser head is misaligned or defective or the motor or associated head/motor electronics is defective.

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?

very simple , just made sure dvd output hooked to the input of your tvs and same color ,jack to jack,you know, yellow to yellow,red to red ,white to white.But I suggest you use a s-video jack(all black). instead of the yellow composite ,or RCA jack,which give you a better picture,and if you have a the component jacks (red, blue , green)on both machine , that will give you the best picture, but remember , you still have to connect the red(right channel,+))and white(left channel,-)cable to have sound coming out from your tv.You will need a s-video cable or component cables for those option I suggested.

If you are using the s-video jack to connect the DVD to the TV, the jack could be loose or the wire could be bad. The s-video cable has 2 signals, the black-and-white (luminance) and the color (chroma). If the chroma signal is not getting through, the picture will be in black and white.
