Question about Toshiba MW24F51 24 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

1 Answer

DVD player - Picture goes from color to black and white

The TV and VCR give color picture when used. The DVD player will sometimes start up in black and white and stay in black and white. Other times it will start out in color and after anywhere from a minute to 30 minutes, typically 1 to 5 minutes , screen will change to black and white. I pulled the DVD unit and took the metal covers off and checked visually for any identifiable problem. On the flat ribbon cable that goes from the left side of the DVD player and connects to the PC board that the VCR is mounted on, I saw a 1/4" long section of the ribbon where the plastic coating had been wore off (possibly from a spinning assembly line tool that grazed the ribbon cable), and the copper wire could be seen. After reassembly, the DVD player worked as it did above. I tried moving the ribbon cable while the DVD was playing in black and white but there was no change in the picture so I don't know if the problem is within the ribbon cable or elsewhere in the DVD player and I am not shure where to go next. Thanks

Why GE TV plays color DVD/VCR tapes in black and white


Some inputs on tvs won't process the color signal. Try one of the other inputs. Mine does the same. If u have already used the working ones on something else, U will need a switch to select one or the other available at Radio Shack if u can find one.

The tv on;y shows a small pip window in color if it is a large picture the picture is in black and white how to fix?


Whatever input video signal you're using, PIP should be in color. What are you using out of your dvd for the second video input source, composite or component? Composite you should always have color, Component, if you have a bad red or blue, and just the green is working, you will get black and white. The green is the luminence signal.

I would like to know how to connect a dvd player through my samsung vcr the inputs in the back i am not familiar with there are two sets of yellow white and red connections with one side for output and...


Connect from dvd OUT to vcr IN
The yellow connecter is video, red is right audio and white is left audio.
You can purchase converter leads (scart to phono(the red/white/yellow connecters) or many other combinations) if needed.
If you have scart connections ( a block of 21 pins) then use that if possible as it will give a better picture.
Connect the dvd out to vcr in and vcr out to the tv in.
NOTE. if you connect this way you will find that the copyright protection will make viewing dvds quite poor quality and may even be black and white or even the picture may "roll"
You may want to buy a scart block to connect more scarts to the tv then it has, also you can get these with different connections.

I can only record and play back in black and white.


siri,

for the black and white screen output of your DVD and VCR.

1) for DVD player: using remote control locate "setup" button and click.a dialogue box should appear indicating " audio setup" video setup" etc.....
2) select and scroll to "video setup". in video setup there should be an option to choose "AUTO" "PAL" or "NTSC"
3) choose "auto" then check if any change in screen color.

for VCR, locate a switch or button indicating "PAL" "Auto""PAL SECAM" "NTSC". same with the dvd choose and select "auto"

note: if you still have the manual for both VCR and DVD check the instruction with regards to video color setting.

cheers,
mark
