SOURCE: DVD picture is in Black & White only.

Are you trying to play an NTSC disc in a PAL player, If so,your player has a switch or
on-screen setting to select the output format for NTSC discs,

Or maybe you have connected one of the component outputs (Y, R-Y, or B-Y) of
your DVD player to the composite input of your TV.

The yellow/red/white cables are COMPOSITE cables. COMPONENT cables are RED/BLUE/GREEN. You can buy those at any electronics store. Your best bet, though, is to stick with HDMI if you can.

Tying to hook-up my 1100 dvd player to tv I have the three cables white yellow and red audio out to audio in on tv. the recoder plays but no picture. is the a certain channel i should be on?


The connection should be the cable box out to the DVD in, the DVD out to the set. The DVD should have a channel select, Either 3 or 4- set it to the channel that is not used by the cable decoder. which should also have a switch for 3 or 4.

Then all you do is switch between channel 3 or channel 4 with the TV remote or by TV channel buttons. One will be cable, the other will be the DVD.

you have to change the input on the tv to AV. there should be an input button on the remote, but if your remote doesnt work you might not be able to change the input. you can try to use the channel up and down on the tv and once you get to the end of the numbers, some tvs will change inputs before restarting the number list. make sure you hook the yellow cable to the yellow plugs on the dvd and the tv and either of the red or white ones to the white one on the tv. red and white are left and right audio and the yellow one is the video

I am hooking the system to a yamaha stereo receiver and i need to know what jacks to hook it to out or in 3 wire or just 2 because of no video just audio red white yellow the stereo reciever just has ...


Let me write some basic things about audio and video signals and cables. Stereo audio has two channels, left and right, usually red and white (or black) jacks. You plug in audio cables. Video signals in old receivers are marked in yellow. If your receiver does not have video (yellow) input, usually located above the two audio inputs, you will not be able to watch any video signal through the receiver. The receiver will only play the sound of dvd, since its left and right audio channels are properly connected. Just aux and phono inputs are not enough. Hope this may help.

Hooked up DVD player to 32" Westinghouse HDTV and now all dvd's are in black/white and fuzzy, along with only having 3 total channels! Help!


It sounds like something is shorting out do to an incorrect connection. Make sure you are matching the correct colors if using composite (RCA) or component cables.If you are using composite than hook the yellow for video and red and white for left and right audio. For component cables use the red blue and green for video instead of yellow and use the red and white from the composite cable for left and right audio leaving the yellow unplugged. You should have the cables coming from the DVD players output going to the TV's input. Select the same input on the TV that you have plugged into. If you are using coax cable through the DVD player if it has a tuner than you will need to change the TV to channel 3 or 4 depending on what the DVD is switched to. After you are done with the DVD player be sure to turn the power off so the cable can work properly. I am guessing here since I don't have much info to work with so I hope this helped you.

Hooking up my DVD/VHS player to TV & Convertor box


I would just hook up the dvd/vhs player with the red,white,yellow rca cables that should of come with your unit and just go to the input on the tv to watch your dvd/vhs player. This will give you a better picture and sound while allowing you not to have to watch dvd/vhs on a channel which helps make the dvd/vhs player independent. Also if possible I would hook the converter box up with the red,white, yellow rca cables to the tv as well if your tv has more than one set of red,white,yellow plugs since it is a better connection that coax and you probably watch more tv than vhs/dvd anyway. So bottom line try to hook up both boxes red,white,yellow and watch each box on different inputs instead of like channel 3 or 4. Also to record of converter box you can run coax from converter box to dvd/vhs combo and make sure your dvd/vhs player is on tuner input or channel 3.

DVD plays only in black and white


Hey, I had this problem on Thanksgiving Day, trying to watch a dvd on my mother's HDTV. You should be able to hook up most standard dvd players to hdtvs. First you have 3 cords, mine were red, yellow, and white. The connections go as follows:

HDTV:
Audio| Component. The white cord should be in a white audio slot. The yellow cord should be in a yellow component slot (video) and the red cord should be in a red video component slot labeled Pr/Cr. Make sure you match the component numbers. For instance, if you want to use component one, then hook all of the cords into the slots for component one. Most hdtvs have multiple component hookups ( think multiple "channels" for your game system, dvd player, etc) so it's important that the corresponding cords go to the correct component slots.

DVD:
Match the yellow and white cords to the appropriately colored slots. The red cord should go into the slot labeled component video out Cr/Pr. Not the red audio out. This worked for me. Hope this helps.

Can't get my dvd/vcr to tape and play back


Color codes for A/V cables:

Yellow: Composite Video
Red: Right Audio Channel
White: Left Audio Channel (mono)

Does your TV have a video & audio OUTPUT on the back of the TV?

If so, will need another set of audio/video cables and you need to connect the yellow cable from the video OUTPUT of the TV to the video INPUT (yellow) of the DVD/VCR and connect the Red cable from the right OUTPUT of the TV to the red INPUT of the DVD/VCR. Then connect the white cable from the left OUTPUT of the TV to the white INPUT of the DVD/VCR. If your TV is not in stereo, just connect up the white cable for mono audio.

If your TV set does NOT have audio/video OUTPUTS, then you will still need another set of audio/video cables and connect the yellow cable from the video OUTPUT of the cable box to the yellow video INPUT of the DVD/VCR and connect either the red or white (or both if possible) to the red or white audio INPUTS of the DVD/VCR.

You need two sets of cables because you want to watch DVD's & tapes on your TV (Path #1) and you want to record the TV channel shows back to your DVD/VCR (Path #2).

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good Luck!
