No Colour on my TV

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?

Make sure your tv is on av2 and not av2s as this will give black and white play back

My dvd player only plays movies in black and white. When I watch tv, it's in color so I know its not the tv.


Hi,

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.

Regards,
BElectric

No colour


Hopefully you've already sorted this problem out, but here's my answer.

If using component video connections, you need to be careful to connect all three plugs correctly at both ends, as well as the two audio channels. That's five RCA connectors at each end.

Sounds like you have only connected the Y signal between the TV and DVD, and have missed the other two (PbCb, PrCr) which carry the colour information.

There is no colour on the movie


Make sure you have the cables hook up right. If you are running component mode it takes three for video blue red and white ends. If you are running composite it takes red, white, and yellow.

I just hooked up my DVD player (Panasonic DVD-RP82) to my television. I have audio and visual now, but I the colour is in black and white. How do I fix this? i have tried many combos of plug ins. Thanks.


it has something to do with your TV's video system and your player's video system...they should match...that is,PAL-PAL,NTSC-NTSC and etc..or if your tv has a multisystem then just set it to AUTO..

No colour when watching dvds ok for everything elese


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.

Hope this heps a bit more,


Chris

Colour gone


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.

LOST INSTRUCTIONS HOW TO HOOK UP MY DVD & VCR PLAYER TO MY TV SONY?


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.

Picture only shows in black & white when playing DVD


Same problem with an older JVC player. One end of the S-video cable was loose. Pushed in in tight and everything ok again. Cheap fix if it works for you.
