Re: No Colour

What is a jvc xv player? how about if u connect ur tv to a cable program, does it give u the same problem? if not, ur xv player is not compatible with ur tv or tv needs to configure setting and also that means ur tv is ok. if yes, there is a problem in the color circuit of ur tv. have it check by a serviceman. but if its not economical to do it, just buy a new one.

How to hookup Sanyo DVW-6100 to a Sylvania tv

If the Sylvania tv is a CRT (old style tube tv) you can just use an RCA cable and hook it into the composite video. It will be the cable that has a red, white and yellow connectors on it. The yellow is the video, the red is the right audio and the white is the left audio. Connect ones side of this cable to the output of the DVD/TAPE player and to the input on the TV side.

My daughter sat on her JVC tv/DVD combo LTdd42J remote and now her DVD's only play in black and white, when watching the TV the colour is fine. I have tried looking in the settings but cannot fin

Cable damage is the first thing to check. If the cable is external this is an easy check by trying a new one. Otherwise it is probably internal cable damage or damage to the video output plug.

I have a JVC DVD Player (XV-N670B), (XV-N672S). I recently purchased a BluRay DVD and after inserting the DVD into the player, "Disc Error" appears. Would you tell me if my player can...

Sorry to say, no; this is a model limitation not a fault as such. XV-N670B is a DVD player, and the playable formats are:

DVD-Video, DVD-RW/-R, +RW/+R, CD, CD-R/RW, SVCD/VCD, WMA/MP3/JPEG, DivX. No Blu-ray support.

The JVC XV-BP11 and XV-BP1 do play Blu-Ray discs, as they are specifically Blu-Ray players (according to the JVC website).

I have heard of quite a few Blu-Ray players allowing DVD playback. The XV-BP1 supports the following playable media: BD-R/RE (Blu-Ray), DVD-Video/-R/-RW, R/ RW, CD, USB (again, this is from the same JVC website). You would need to purchase this or a similar Blu-Ray player to enjoy the benefits it has to offer (but it's up to you if you want one of those later on).

DVDs are still good, the 'disc error' message on your DVD player is normal due to the wrong media format inserted. The bonus here is it didn't cost you anything to ask, and you don't need a workshop quote on repairs.

This is the best free advice I can offer.

My dvd player only plays movies in black and white. When I watch tv, it's in color so I know its not the tv.


I suspect you may have connected a COMPOSITE cable (red/white/yellow RCA type) to the COMPONENT video input sockets on the back of the TV.

COMPONENT requires 3 RCA type video cables - the plugs and sockets are usually colour-coded red, green, and blue. COMPOSITE only uses one RCA type video cable - the plugs and sockets are usually colour-coded yellow.
If you connect the yellow video cable to one of the three component inputs you will get a black and white picture although you will still have audio if the red and white cables are correctly connected.

If you are using a COMPOSITE cable (red/white/yellow RCA type), please check your connections. Make sure you have not connected to any sockets - either on the TV or the back of the DVD player - under the heading of "COMPONENT" - or individually marked "Pr", "Cr", "Pb", "Cb" or "Y".

If you have verified that you are using the correct sockets on the TV and it still doesn't work or if you are using any other type of cable, please let me know which cable you are using and the model number of the TV and the DVD player. I will then be able to assist you further.

Sanyo dvw 7200 dvd only plays sound no video

It sounds to me as if you have the connectors (phono plugs aka RCA plugs--Yellow = video; Red = right audi channel; White = left audio channel) switched OR the yellow isn't connected.

The video of my jvc dvd player won't display on my tv screen or the video is not working but the audio is ok.

Connect the yellow connector on the DVD player to the yellow connector on the TV. Refer to the TV manual and select the video input. Refer to DVD manual and choose interlace on the DVD player. Let me know if this helps

Connecting DVD player to Viewsonic TV

You will use component video cables.  They come in threes and all they require you to do is connect the DVD output with the TV input and match the cable colors on both ends.  They will be red, white, and yellow.  The yellow is the video, and red and white are left and right audio.  If your TV is too old to have stereo audio, only one (red or white) audio cable needs to be connected.  It doesn't matter which.  The yellow cable always needs to be connected.

Another option, but a slightly less common one, is to use a single AV cable to connect the two.  The reason this is less common is because most newer TV's do not have AV input, and newer DVD players do not have AV output.  If it does, however, this is the most simple, and you probably wish to take advantage of it, so you have a connection available when you purchase a newer unit which does not have AV.

Colour gone

Did you possibly switch where your wires are hooked up? I just tried hooking my player up to a new tv and I had a black and white picture at one point. Make sure your video wires hook to the proper colored ports.

Picture only shows in black & white when playing DVD

Same problem with an older JVC player. One end of the S-video cable was loose. Pushed in in tight and everything ok again. Cheap fix if it works for you.
