Just had the same problem with mine. It would not play DVD's in color, but the TV's color was great. I put in a DVD and started playing it. I unpugged and replugged the S-video cord while the DVD player was playing a movie. This was an instant fix for mine. The color is back while watching DVD's. Hope this will work for you too!

You may have connected one of the component outputs (usually colored red, green, and blue) of your DVD player to the composite input of your TV. Connect yellow to yellow. See section 3.2 for hookup details. Also, if you've hooked up component video, check the three cables to make sure one of them hasn't become disconnected or developed a short and that they are connected in the correct order. If you use an s-video connection, the chroma wire maybe broken -- try a different cable or try the composite connection.
If you live in a PAL country (most countries outside of the U.S., Canada, and Japan) you may be playing an NTSC disc in a PAL player, but your PAL TV can't handle the signal. If your player has a switch or on-screen setting to select the output format for NTSC discs, choosing PAL (60 Hz) should solve the problem. See section 1.19 for more information.

SOURCE: DVD disks just play in black and white. No color.

This is because of the audio video format issue. You select the TV type to auto (Advisable) or to the appropriate selection such as PAL or NTSC in the DVD player to get the better output with the color.
This selection you usually find in settings > Video setup> TV Type

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.

No longer plays color picture


Try the settings for "pal - ntsc - cvbs" video formats, if the tv and dvd aren't set the same, then this can cause the problem(usually with distortion to picture, depending on how it's mis-matched)

DVD's not playing in color


sounds like the problem is the TV . your tv have to different inputs , COMPONENT is for the separate color , BLUE , RED , GREEN this is for better video quality , if your DVD doesnt have this OUTPUT feature , then maybe the YELLOW (VIDEO) , RED & WHITE ( AUDIO ) thats coming out from your DVD player is connected to the COMPONENT input of your TV , GETTING the B&W effect. it should be connected to the VIDEO input of your TV ( yellow , red , white ) hope this is helpful AJ

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.

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.
