We have a Philips Magnavox Model #TP3284C101 TV and plugged in a Durabrand DVD Model #DVD1002 player to it. It will only play in black and white on this TV. But when we plug the DVD player into another TV...

It sounds like you have a standard problem.
Is the TV you are using, that gives the black and white picture, the same as the other ie, both NTSC or PAL and both on RGB or Y-C or S-Video?
Check to see what is required and set the DVD player accordingly.
Hope that helps.

My RCA 32" TV 2001 is black and white but the menu

Ours had a problem like that. The digibox and the dvd player (anything plugged in with a SCART lead) only played in black and white but the tv menu screen was in colour.
Also anything plugged in with those three little thingies, the red/yellow/white thingies, played in colour so we just bought a converter between SCART and the three thingies.
Sorry for how useless this was, I'm not great with all the technical language. Hope it helped in some way.

I have a problem I am trying to connect my dvd player It shows black and white i have a proscan 32 inch what can I do to fix this ? please help.

Check to make sure the Video connector (YELLOW) is connected to a YELLOW plug on both the TV and the DVD. If it is plugged into a GREEN plug then it will produce the black and white picture and not a color picture.

Good Luck...

Connect Philips DVD to Sansung TV

the red and black are the same as the red and white, these are the audio left and right channels. the yellow plug is the video plug. the next thing you have to check is wheather your tv has video 1 and 2 channels

DVD plugged into red, white and green(Yellow) TV imputs, results

Yeah no color coz its black and white. Color coding commonly yellow wire for video, red and white wire for audio. It should also be from DVD to TV, video out and audio out going to video in and audio in. And switch the TV to play video and the audio inputted. Maybe TV/Video Switch or button.

Hope it helps

DVD player in black and white

Ok I know I just made a comment but guess what... heres the solution!!!!!!! I was sooo mad that I went and started playing with the cables and got it working. You have to plug in white to white, yellow to green and red to blue on the back of the DVD player and match up the colors on the back of the tv. And it plays in color!! Hope this works for you too!
