Install s-video cable now dvd is black & white

Have had combo player for some time and recently installed s-video cable between player and RCA 32" television. Now all player will do is play dvd's in black and white. The picture clarity is great but it's still black and white. Cannot seem to get color. All I did was install an s-video cable. Had to resort to re-install coax connection so that dvd would play in color. Any suggestions?

    Purchased a different s-video cable and received the exact same results. Didn't think the cable was the issue, but figured it was worth a try to eliminate the concern

You might have a bad cable just because you get a great picture but no color.i would exchange the cable where you bought it and try another one.

The player does play the dvd's and everything but the picture wont show up in my television. I already connected the RCA connectors into the television and the player but still no picture. Please Help.


Assuming you used the standard YELLOW-WHITE-RED RCA cable, between the unit and the TV, the colours of each of the plugs should match both the outputs on the rear of the unit and the respective inputs at the rear of the TV. The TV must also be on an AV input 'channel' to receive the connected unit. (for example, AV1 or VIDEO 1)

Try changing the RCA cables - just in case the ones you currently have are defective in some way.

Being a combo unit, there should be a DVD-VCR common output on the rear - using RCA cable, the YELLOW is video, the WHITE is left channel, the RED is right - these MUST match the input on the TV, and the TV AV input must be selected in order to view the pictures and audio from the unit. To enjoy both VCR and DVD, using the RCA connection, the common output on the rear of the combo unit is recommended.

Better quality video is possible using S-Video cable (available from electronics stores such as Radio Shack etc. but this does not provide audio; you would still require RCA RED-WHITE cable for that, and your TV may not have S-Video input). Your TV may have a TV/AV button on the front - select the correct AV 'channel' with that if necessary.

It makes sense to check everything twice before assuming anything is broken.

I have my Samsung model dvd V9800 hooked up to my RCA RT2906. The dvd side is showing a picture but the video side is not. The RCA RT2906 has have a hook up for a vcr player by it's self but I do not think...


Hi,
VCR video signal wont come out from Component Video Out of combo unit, it is low resolution signal so you need to hook yellow-red-white video cable in tv for VCR output.
Make sure to select VCR as source in combo while playback of VHS tape and select DVD as source when playing dvd disc in combo.
Hope these info will help you.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

I AM TRYING TO HOOK UP A SONY DVD PLAYER TO AN INSIGNIA TV/DVD COMBO. CAN IT BE DONE. IF SO DO U NEED A DIFFERENT CABLE OR EXACTLY HOW DO YOU CONNECT THE TWO....THANKS


It will depend on the TV/DVD combo and the DVD player. Most TV/DVD combos can have another device attached but you will need to get the cable. Since you posted this under the Insignia IS-DVD1001, I'm not sure which TV or DVD player you have.

In general, look at the back of the TV and the DVD player and see what ports are on both (input on TV and output on the DVD player). If you have HDMI out on the DVD player and HDMI in on the TV, get an HDMI cable and use that; generally you do not need the most expensive cables available. The next best choice is Component video and A/V audio. One cable with three RCA plugs (red, blue and green) on both ends carries the video and a second cable with two RCA plugs (white and red) carries the audio. The third choice is composite video or S-video and the audio. (Composite video is usually designated by yellow and is again an RCA plug. S-video is like a large version of a PS2 (keyboard or mouse) connector. All of these cables are available at electronics stores, stores that sell cables or electronic accessories.

If the two do not have the same ports, you need an appropriate converter (or modulator if the input port is the coax port on the TV). You can find many of these at RadioShack or online.

I hope this helps.

How do i/can i record tv to a DVD ]


If your using RCA cables (thats the red, white & yellow leads) you need run yellow RCA from the 'VIDEO (or) TV OUTPUT' at the back of your tv, to the 'VIDEO (or) TV INPUT' in the back of your DVD/VCR combo unit, & do the same with the red & white 'AUDIO' leads only run them from AUDIO OUTPUT(tv) to AUDIO INPUT(dvdrecorder). Now set the mode of the dvd recorder to TV IN or AUX IN. Now it should record whatever you see on the tv screen. But if your tv has an S VIDEO OUTPUT option, using an S VIDEO cable would be much easier & produces a better copy! Hope this helps!

I am trying to connect an akai dvd player to directv, please help


ruettab,

good day. to connect your any DVD player to any TV screen always remember this color code

from DVD back part:

yellow = video out

red/blue/green( in a row) = component video out ( this can only be used for screen with component video inputs)


Black = digital audio ( rarely use unless)
Red and white (in a row) = Audio output (left and right audio)


where to connect from TV screen.

Locate where A/V INPUTS (audio/video socket) from your TV screen, you can see it either at the BACK/SIDE or somtimes in FRONT of TV screen , having marked as "AV1"AV2"AV3' .

Once you found TV input, you must first have RCA cable (color code cable to connect player to screen) then connect the RCA cable at the back of your DVD player, simply follow color code

RCA yellow marked cable = DVD yellow socket
RCA RED and WHITE marked cable = DVD RED and white socket (second row for your player)

then connect the other end of the RCA cable to TV screen, first select which input where you gonna place the DVD player ( either AV1, Av2 or Av3 if do have multiple inputs)

once decided which INPUT to connect the player.
ex. if you select AV1 as input there would be 3socket on its row (yellow/red/white)

now connect the other end of RCA cable to the screen by following the same color code:

RCA yellow cable = TV screen A/V1 input yellow socket
RCA RED and White = TV screen A/V1 input red and white socket.

cheers,
mark

Hi!

This sounds a lot like a setup problem. If you have connected more than one kind of cable to the unit (say, coax and RCA, or RCA and S-video), the unit needs to be told what cables to use. I'm not familiar with this particular unit, but I would bet there is a place in the setup utility where you can tell it which connection to use. Tell it to use the highest quality one you have connected and see if this fixes your problem.

Good luck and let me know if this helps!
