Black and white playback on television screne

When the camera is connected to the TV, playback on the TV is black and white. Playback on the camera LCD is normal and in color. I have tested the problem in the following ways: The television plays other programs and DVD's in normal color. The s-video and the RCA/yellow head video cable produce the same result. Different tapes, some previous some recent, all play black and white on the television, but in color on the LCD. The camera is functioning normally otherwise. I have had it three years and use it fairly constantly. Could this be about cleaning the heads? Please say it is.

    You were exactly right.

    I couldn't believe it at first, but when I looked at the TV manual, I found that the color system control is a tiny button next to the RCA input. I must have hit it inadvertently. Thanks so much.

NOT GETTING COLOUR FROM CCTV DVR TO TV BLACK WHITE


Missing information alert. What is meant by "to TV black and white"? Are you saying you can't get playback on a black and white (and therefore old, analog) TV set? What connection set up are you using between recorder and the playback TV? At first glance it would appear you might need a digital to analog converter to process the DVR output prior to feeding it as a SD (standard definition) signal into your TV set for mmonitoring. thanks for clarifiying your question, including a description of your setup.

Toshiba VCR. It records OK but playback is black, white shaky


What do you mean by "records OK"? It sounds to me like you are not getting a signal to record. I had this problem before, as well. There are two things I recommend you try. The first is that (if you are trying to record over-the-air tv, you will need a digital television converter box connected directly to the vcr. If you already have one and are sure that it is connected correctly, you may also try an RF modulator. When I got my new vcr, it wouldn't work at first. I eventually found out that I would need an RF modulator in order for it to work on my tv. I hope these suggestions help. Good luck! Sincerely, Der Strom

Vidio recorder when i record it wont play back what is recorded but it will play pre recorded tapes Is it campatable for LG television please model no VR550/07


If it plays back pre recorded tapes then there is nothing wrong with that section of the unit. Does it playback audio and not picture or does it not playback anything.
Also, when trying to playback a recording what is seen of the screen? Snow(black and white dots or wiggly picture?

The unit uses two separate circuits to record and playback tapes. Is any thing else connected to the unit while you are recording? If you are using anything plugged into other ports on the recorder it may not see the camera input causing it to not record anything..
