Magnavox ZV420MW8 only shows in black and white with no sound

When I tried to use my Magnavox ZV420MW8 it will not show anything in color only in black and white. Then there is also no sound but all the wires are plugged into the correct spots. I've tried putting the wire into different spots just to double check and then there is no picture at all so I believe I have the wires in the correct spot it just wont play and needs sound.

Make sure that you connect all of these connections to the right colored cables.

It seems like you only have the green cable connected. Go back and connect the red and blue for both the tv and dvd.

No color-showing in black and white


It sounds like something is set to NTSC instead of PAL, check to make sure that everything is set to PAL. If you TV isn't NTSC compadible then it could be that you are trying to watch an NTSC disk.

No color and sporatic play on VCR mode, with zv420mw8


If this problem happened within a few seconds, you probably have dirty heads. If It happened slowly you could have an alignment problem. Both of these problems should be repair professionally.

I can only record and play back in black and white.


siri,

for the black and white screen output of your DVD and VCR.

1) for DVD player: using remote control locate "setup" button and click.a dialogue box should appear indicating " audio setup" video setup" etc.....
2) select and scroll to "video setup". in video setup there should be an option to choose "AUTO" "PAL" or "NTSC"
3) choose "auto" then check if any change in screen color.

for VCR, locate a switch or button indicating "PAL" "Auto""PAL SECAM" "NTSC". same with the dvd choose and select "auto"

note: if you still have the manual for both VCR and DVD check the instruction with regards to video color setting.

cheers,
mark

This recorder only records inline. This means that there is no channel on recorder. It records whatever your satellite or cable box is showing. You'll have to change the channel on that.

I don't know that this will work for timed recording. You'll have to make sure that your cable/satellite is on and set to the proper channel before you leave. This wont work if you're recording multiple shows on different channels while you're gone. In that case you may need a different recorder.
