I have audio and video, but no colour on my television at all. I have the audio all hooked up correctly. The Video In on my TV is going into the Video Out on the DVD player. So why am I not getting any colour?

I suspect you may have connected a COMPOSITE cable (red/white/yellow RCA type) to the COMPONENT video input sockets on the back of the TV.
COMPONENT requires 3 RCA type video cables - the plugs and sockets are usually colour-coded red, green, and blue. COMPOSITE only uses one RCA type video cable - the plugs and sockets are usually colour-coded yellow. If you connect the yellow video cable to one of the three component inputs you will get a black and white picture although you will still have audio if the red and white cables are correctly connected.
If you are using a COMPOSITE cable (red/white/yellow RCA type), please check your connections. Make sure you have not connected to any sockets - either on the TV or the back of the DVD player - under the heading of "COMPONENT" - or individually marked "Pr", "Cr", "Pb", "Cb" or "Y".
If you have verified that you are using the correct sockets on the TV and it still doesn't work or if you are using any other type of cable, please let me know which cable you are using and the model number of the TV and the DVD player. I will then be able to assist you further.
jus like every electrical circuit your combo player will b colour coded. the video out is usually a single jack on its own in da colour of yellow. now da audio is a bit more difficult but very easy to connect.if u read da back pannel u will read audio out wic u will connect da remainin cables. the colour coding for audio is either red and white or red and black
You will have to make sure you are connecting them with the red and white cables on audio and the yellow on video at both ends, as both your dvd and tv have low def and hi def cabling options.
That means Red and White to Audio at each end and Yellow to video at both ends. If you connect the yellow cable to one of the other three connectors at iether end you will only get black and white as they are meant for a different type of connection.
To get the maximum quality out of your sets you may want to purchase a set of Hi-Definition Component cables which will give you a set of five cables, still red and white for audio but now red, green, blue for video.
Did you possibly switch where your wires are hooked up? I just tried hooking my player up to a new tv and I had a black and white picture at one point. Make sure your video wires hook to the proper colored ports.
Sony maintains most manuals on their website. The general principle is to hook the cables from the video and audio OUT of the DVD/VCR player to the video and audio IN of the TV. Once the cables are hooked up correctly, just press the input, source, av, or video button on the tv or tv remote to change the television to the correct channel so that you can watch videos.
