Question about Philips Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player

1 Answer

No color when playing DVD's

We have a relatively new VCR/DVD player DVP3150/37. We have been borrowing DVD movies from our local library, haven't tried bought or rentals but what we are experiencing in 6 out of 8 so far have shown no color for the movie but some color in the intros, which I think is odd. We have jiggled the cables and tried different things but generally no success, The VHS part works just fine, what are we missing, please? Thank you....

    We only have the one DVD player and no close neighbors available to use their player to test the DVD's. We were able to watch one of the library DVD's last night and the color was there for that one but not for the other three, Which sort of tells me that it is not a problem, as such, with the player as much as compatibility with said DVD's. I have checked with all of the DVD casings and they are all Region 1, the DVD logo is the same on all except the one that worked for us, on the ones that don't work the DVD logo has a disc under it and the one that worked has a shape above it, not sure if that is relavent but seems to be the only difference. I am sorry, not sure what the other suggestions mean.
