When tv is in composite video screen is black and white and fuzzy

When I try to hook up anything up to the composite video jacks the screen is black and white and fuzzy. I was able to fix this problem in the other modes by turning video to user modes but for some reason this won't work for the composite. And other settings turn all red or blue

My nintendo wi system when i turn it on the home screen is in black and white and fuzzy what is wrong

Well I think that it might be the av cables that are causing it to be in black,gray and white then. Or the tv might be having an issue with the rca jacks on the tv where you hook up the av cables or it could be the aux or video 1 2 or 3 that is not working so try another video or aux number too see if it will make a difference.

Im trying to connect my sega dreamcast which has red white an yellow av cable only, however my insignia NS-32E570A11 led tv only has for component connection with the blue green n red, when i hooked it up,...

Sorry, this will not be easy....

You need to locate a composite to RGB converter box.

Your Sega outputs a composite signal - Video (yellow) and audio left/right (white/red).

The TV needs RGB (red/green/blue) inputs on the component connection...your composite signal divided by three. There are converter boxes out there for around 70 bucks or so.

Are you certain you do not have a yellow VIDEO IN jack on your set? Every LCD and LED TV I have experience with has at least one.

Wii game hooked up to new Sharp LED tv. TV is color and the wii is in black and white.

Usually this is either a cable or a mode issue. First make sure that you have the correct cable connections. (Composite video cable to a component video jack is one possible cause of the problem.) Component video cables are not included with the set but will give better results. However, composite video in from the wii's composite video out should give good results.

If you are using HDMI or component video cables, then go into the Wii video menus to select the correct mode for your tv. Check your TV manual and the Wii setup guide for details on the mode (resolution, etc) you should be using.

If the problem persists, try new video cables and make sure that they are fully seated on both sides. Try switching inputs if you have several available.

I hope this helps.

How do I hook the dvd player to the tv???

If your TV has composite video inputs, use the A/V cable that came with the player. Connect the black mini-plug to the AV out on the left side of the DVD player. The other side has standard composite video (RCA jacks); connect the yellow plug to a composite video in jack on the TV. Then plug the red and white plugs to the matching Audio in for that composite video connection. If you do not have the adapter, get a replacement like: .

If your TV doesn't have composite video inputs, you will need the appropriate converter depending on the TV. Most likely you would need a composite video to RF converter (an RF modulator) like this: . (Most TVs with component video and HDMI ports will also have composite video jacks.)

I hope this helps.

(If you have enough devices that you need a switch, you can find them in stores like Radio Shack. If you want to convert to component video, those converters also exist. However, each converter will degrade the signal a bit.)

I have a friend whose Emerson Flat Panel LCD television works fine except when you hook up a DVD Player to the television set it only shows the movies in black and white. For some reason I can not get it...

How do hook it up? Are you using composite video (Yellow video cable) from DVD Yellow RCA video out to the TV AV1 composite video Yellow RCA jack and RED and WHITE cables for sound. Or you are using component video hook up using RED, BLUE, and GREEN Video cables and the RED and WHITE cables for sound. Please post back and tell us how you have it set up. You just have to match the color of jacks and plugs, unless there is problem in the TV.

Connection using Component video No Video

1-Locate the audio/video input jacks AND the component input jacks on the TV.
Inputs are typically located on the back of the TV, but occasionally are on the sides, top, or bottom. They may also be located behind a hidden panel or door in the television.
Look for inputs marked Audio and Video IN.
Do NOT connect the system to anything marked OUT.
2-Connect the rectangular plug of the Component Video Cable into the Digital AV Out port on the back of the Wii console.
3-Connect the Component Video Cable to the television as follows. (Note that the Red and White audio cables are bound together with a black band labeled "audio.")
4-If you do not have a TV/Video button, then the input could be labeled something different. Some common input selects to look for on the TV or remote are: Input, Input Select, EXT, AUX, AV, or a channel such as 00 or 99.

I just purchased this tv. I had no trouble hooking up the satalite cable box but When I hooked up the dvd player the picture is only in black and white. How do I fix this?

Are you using component video (red/blue/green) rca jacks, or composite video input (yellow) rca jack? You need to match the color but watch out and do not get confused with the red and white RCA for audio.

The dr-mv100b only plays in black and white?

You may want to make sure your connections are correct. You will typically see this when you hook up composite connections into component inputs or vice versa.

Make sure if using composite (Red,White, Yellow) cables that they are hooked up to the composite out put jack on rear panel of the unit.*Note: composite out put jack is located directly below the composite 'Input 1' jack with a black 'background' on this recorder.So don't confuse this 'output' with an 'input' simply because it is below the 'input' jack.

Also make sure you are hooking up into composite inputs and not component (Green,Blue,Red) jacks.

When i hook up dvd player to a insignia plasma tv i get a picture & sound but it is in black& do i get to be color

if you connect composit video from your DVD player to the "Y" jack of the tv then you will get only a black and white picture .. the composit video out of your DVD has to be connected to the composit video input of the TV .. or if you have component outputs on your DVD then you can hook those up to the "three" component inputs of the tv .. (you have to have all three hooked up plus 2 audio cables ..

DVD player hook-up problem

Using the composite video connection method is pretty straightforward. you will be dealing with one video cable (marked in Yellow), and two audio cables (marked in White and Red) Red is right channel and white is left channel if stereo, if mono use the white marked cable. Look at the back of your DVD player you will see the video out RCA jack (marked in yellow) plug one end of the video cable into this jack, the plug the other end of the cable into the TVs Video In jack (marked in yellow) Then plug the audio cables into the Audio Out RCA jacks of the DVD player Red marked cable to red jack White Marked cable to white jack. After this is done plug the ends of the sother side of the cable into the Audio input of the TV white to white, red to red. At this point you should have video and audio once you set the menu of your tv to accept input from the Composite input and the audio jacks. I hope this helps.
