Question about Insignia 32" 720p Flat-Panel LCD HDTV

DVD hookup to LCD monitor only appears in black and white!

I have a Samsung series 3 - 330 LCD monitor.  When I hooked up my DVD/VCR player, the picture is in black and white. I have tried everything to get color picture, but I can't.  The DVD/VCR is also Samsung, but is about 6 years old.  How can I get color picture?

    Same problem here, except with Samsung T220HD. The screen shows in black and white regardless whether the signal was coming from dvd player or game consoles.

    yeah, i have the dvd player in the bottom inputs and the game console
    in the inputs directly above (both are supposed to be aux in)... but
    only the ones in the first set (aux 1, i think) are in color - not the
    2nd... and i switched them to see if it was the input or the game
    console and it appears that anything in the bottom inputs will work
    fine, but anything in the upper inputs will be b/w and grainy... :(

I have a Samsung SyncMaster 933 HD TV that we are using for a video hookup. We have plugged the white and red RCA jack into the back but did not get a picture. Does this TV have to be on a certain channel...


The white and red wires are for sound only, you will need to connect a video source, usually a yellow wire.

What is your video source? dvd, computer, vcr, cable

Write back and i will help more

There has got to be a way


I have this model..was trying to hook it up to a directv hughes receiver. After a day of trying and many curse words I found that using this hookup works . Hook up your satellite connection to you tv as usual...Now plug rca cables(red, yellow white) into the corresponding holes on the BACK of the Directv receiver ..now plug the rca cables into the FRONT of the Magnavox player...you will only use find holes for the white and yellow(that's ok) Now hook up up the dvd player to the tv using the rca connection back of dvd/vcr player..or if your tv only has a coax connection you will need a rf modulator available at walmart etc. You will run the dvd/vcr on L2. The key is the connections to the FRONT of the dvd/vcr player..I hope this helps..:)

Lcd tv hookup


Ive got 3 samsung tv's (lcd, plasma, DLP) and I use HDMI cables on all of them. Its the only way to get the full potential out of the tv. When you use the red/white/yellow RCA cables the signal is anolog aka "old technology". Component cables are good but HDMI is the best. HDMI is a digital signal and thats what all the components that go with the tv should be run on. If your dvd player does not have an HDMI output I would suggest getting one that has that output. As for the cable box most require you to upgrade to digital cable in order to get one with an HDMI output. If you dont want to spend the money on new components and run what you have now the picture will stay mediocre at best. Good luck hope this helped

We have a Philips VCR/DVD player DVP3340V/17. According to the manual we have it hooked up correctly but it will not record on VCR or DVD. Help


Here's what's going on with that unit. The DVP3340 records on the vcr side only, not the dvd side. To record on the VCR side, you would have to plug a red, white, and yellow plug from the red, white, and yellow OUT of your cable box to the red, white, and yellow VCR IN of the Philips. The manual, as far as I can see, only shows hookups for playback, not for recording. Good luck!

HOoking up DVD/VCR without correct connectors


either use an old vcr to act as a signal converter or go buy an "rf converter" from an electronics store to change composite audio/video signal to channels 3 or 4 and that should do the trick.
