Make sure your are using the correct connections.
Your deck and your TV will probably both composite and component inputs and outputs. They are easy to confuse.
You might be sending a composite output into a component input. That could result in a monochrome picture.
If you are using a S-video cable. The black and white part of the picture (luma) and the color part of the picture (chroma) are carried on different lines. If the chroma signal is not getting through, you will get a black and white picture.

Ok I purchased a philips dvd/vhs combo today and I can watch dvd and hear it great... but when I put a vhs in I get picture and no sound can anyone help me on this.. please


Check sound settings . If unit is set to Dolby change it to PCM. Most likely you have already went through other settings. If this does not work let me know the models of he unit and tv and what you have tried already and I will try to help

VHS plays in colour and DVD plays in black and white.


there is a circuit in the color section to put the tv to black and white if the color subcarrier is missing from the broadcast signal.
it is called a color killer and needs to be adjusted.
it is for a technician to do.
it operates off the 3.58mhz color subcarrier.

How do I connect my Magnavox DVD/VHS player to my Element Flat screen TV?


Do you have a newer TV or a older one lets start with a newer models does your tv have 3 or more jacks on the back or front you should see a RED, YELLOW and WHITE if you have a HDTV you should see more. (LETS HOOK UP) Did your DVD/VCR come with a cables if not you will need to buy at least 2 they are called RCA cables Lets start with the dvd/vcr combo on the back you should see a (LINE OUT) this is where playback or your picture and sound come out. On the back of the TV you should see a (LINE IN) this is where you plug it in to. RED goes to RED, WHITE goes to WHITE and YELLOW goes to YELLOW. To Record you will need to hook up the line in on your combo and the line out to your tv. ( IF YOU HAVE AN OLDER T.V WITH NONE OF THOSE JACKS ) you will need to buy a RF- MODULATOR the are cheap it is a box that let you hook a cable wire to a little box and the RCA jacks to you combo and you will turn your tv to channel 3 or 4

DVD in, have sound but no picture???


Hi,

Initially, a couple of ideas:
  • check the cables from the DVD to the VHS to the TV (I am assuming that the sound is likewise connected to the TV and not to a home receiver system or an amplifier);
  • I am assuming again that you are using RCA and not RF, if yes pls pay special attention to the yellow RCA on both the DVD to VHS and VHS to TV;
  • diagonal roll often indicates a loose ground or a defective cable/RCA connector;
  • verify settings/configurations in all three; DVD, VHS, TV. TV should be set to AV or Video, VHS likewise to A/V INput;
  • try playing a known good VHS tape, if normal playback, problem is between DVD and VHS, if likewise no video, problem is between VHS and TV.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
