Question about Philips DVP642 DVD Player
Can not get the dvd to play in color
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.

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
