Sounds to me as if you have not set the Playback CODEC properly.. In the Menu system, as in NTSC or PAL. Make sure that the DVD & Player are set the same Format ie: NTSC or PAL..

When I hook up DVD player to 32inch LG television there is no color on the TV it plays in black and white. Why?


first check color level setting on the tv when on av source input. double check input you are using, yellow video input (not green)
then try another device in that same input, then try the DVD player on another tv. The problem will be either DVD player or incompatibility or bad main board in TV, but usually a DVD or compatibility problem(cheap DVD player)

#dhb300b DVD player plays only black and white my TV is a JVC HD TV with HDMI cable from driver TV box hook up DVD to TV audivo to audivo video to video set TV to component program DVD to TV but plats


The yellow/red/white cables are COMPOSITE cables. COMPONENT cables are RED/BLUE/GREEN. You can buy those at any electronics store. Your best bet, though, is to stick with HDMI if you can.

Our Emerson EWD7003 now only plays in black and white after DISH hookup


Does the Tv channels show colour? if yes! I would try another audio/video cable connection from the DVD player to the Tv and try another input to the set, to see if that will help.

Picture but no sound


Best to use the a/v cables.
Your player should have output ports for audio and video, on the ports that say output, plug the cable red to red, white ot white, and yellow to yellow.
Now, the cable going the back of the TV. Your choice, input1 or input 2. Just plug red to red, white to white, and yellow to yellow.
Now press the the input button on your remote until the picture and sound appear.

DVD plays only in black and white


Hey, I had this problem on Thanksgiving Day, trying to watch a dvd on my mother's HDTV. You should be able to hook up most standard dvd players to hdtvs. First you have 3 cords, mine were red, yellow, and white. The connections go as follows:

HDTV:
Audio| Component. The white cord should be in a white audio slot. The yellow cord should be in a yellow component slot (video) and the red cord should be in a red video component slot labeled Pr/Cr. Make sure you match the component numbers. For instance, if you want to use component one, then hook all of the cords into the slots for component one. Most hdtvs have multiple component hookups ( think multiple "channels" for your game system, dvd player, etc) so it's important that the corresponding cords go to the correct component slots.

DVD:
Match the yellow and white cords to the appropriately colored slots. The red cord should go into the slot labeled component video out Cr/Pr. Not the red audio out. This worked for me. Hope this helps.

DVD'S Play only in black and white


In UK this occures when an NTSC picture is played from a DVD player to a TV which cannot enitrely hand NTSC format. Possible this will happen in the reverse for USA.

Also my TV cannot handle SVHS signals and also displays them in black and white.

Try changing settings on the DVD Player to Composite or RGB.

VHS tapes are black and white


The tapes are B/W or one of the playback video heads is not making contact with the tape. The video head may need to be adjusted. You can take it in to get it fixed or buy a new one. The unit today is worth around $25-$30.
