You need to make sure that you change the input on the TV. It is most likely AUX1 or video input 1. Look on you TV remote for a button that says "input" or "source". Make sure your DVD player is on, press press play, then hit the input or souce button on the remote.

If the Sony DVP-NS77H DVD player displays "TRAY LOCKED" and you can't
eject a disc or open the tray, try the following - First turn the unit
off. Then, while holding down the eject, play and stop buttons
simultaneously (on the front of the DVD player), turn the unit on with
the '/O button (also on the front of the player). This released the
locked tray for me.
If you have red, white, and yellow on both DVD and TV it should work. The DVD is obviousy an output so, check your connection on TV. You may find that if you scan through the TV's menu, you will have sound in one arae and picture in another. If you have a DVD in or AUX input on the TV try, and make sure you use the inputs for the respective setting, to hook up there and see what happens. You want input on TV.
Hi, Hook audio/ video cable from dvd player to AV input of tv and select that AV input in tv to watch dvd playback picture. You will see yellow jack (for video signal output) and red-white jacks (for audio left-right output signal) at rear of dvd player, plug AV Cable and hook it in AV input of tv, make sure yellow pin connected in yellow jacks of dvd and tv. Thanks.
You have posted this in the Panasonic DMR-ES30VS section.
Please note which product section you are in before posting your question.
For the Sony DVP-SR200P there could be multiple reasons for it only showing in B&W.
Was this a recent problem, is this a new hook-up, has it always been this way?
In the setup menu there is a setting for Custom Picture Mode. Could someone have turned the color down? You can go to the setup menu and "Reset" the player to the factory settings.
How is this connected to your TV? Check all cables to make sure they are plugged in, test each one by unplugging it, and then plug it back in fully.
If you are using a composite cable (1 cable yellow plug), be sure you have plugged it in from yellow to yellow.
If you are using the component (3 cables red-green-blue plugs) hook-up, be sure you are using cables only designed for component hook-up, and have plugged them in correctly, red to red, green to green, blue to blue (Be sure you've plugged the red cable into the red video not red audio).
Are the cables in good condition? No breaks, loose connectors, they weren't smashed under a piece of furniture? Have you tried a different set of cables?
Test the DVD player on another TV. Does the same thing happen? Did you "Reset" the DVD player? Maybe the DVD player is bad?
Find another DVD player and test it with your TV. Does it work OK, or is it black and white too? Maybe the connectors on the TV are bad? Is there a custom setting on the TV for that connection? On some TVs you can adjust the settings for each input (INPUT 1, INPUT 2, ....) maybe the color setting is turned down?
There are may possibilities, but these are some of the basic things to check.
check your connections on the back of the tv and back of the dvd player.
make sure you are using the proper conections on the back of the tv. if you connect the RCA (composite) cables (red yellow white) you should be going from the red yellow white on the tv to the red yellow white on the dvd player. if you have the component(red blue green) connection on the dvd connected to the red yellow white on the tv, you may get a black and white picture. If this does not work, check the manual for the dvd player and see if there is a way to turn "Progressive Scan" features off, some older TV's cannot handle a progressive scan dvd player.
