It could be the color processor module, could be locked up, or your tuner is going bad. First thing to do is unplug the AC cord, from the the AC outlet for about 40 Minutes and that will reset the color processor. if you still have problems, then bypass the tuner, and go directly to the video input with a DVD player, or Video game player "360 x box" or anything that you can hook up to the video input. Make sure to put your TV in Video mode, if you have color now , than you have a bad tuner, if it is still black and white, than in is the color module that is bad, or your color control is turn all the way down.
Not sure what kind of video hookup you're using.I'm guessing you are using a red/white/yellow audio/video cord.If you plugged the yellow(ccalled composite) cord into the green of the component video port,it may look like black and white.(this can be a fun prank to play on someone who annoys you).
There might be a problem with the jack inserts on the T.V. have you tried wiggling the jacks while there plugging in to the T.V. and also make sure the same cord is securely connected in the back of the console.
Assuming you are using the VS-2 with your system. I have experienced the same problem when I fiddle with equipment. Each time it is due to the S-video plug from the VS-2 cable becoming loose or detached. Make sure every cord is re-inserted into the back of the LS 38.
Make sure both S-video (black round connector) and Composite video (yellow connector) are connected to video outputs not inputs. It can also be the S-video is disconected, that will give you a black and white picture.
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.
1 try the video cord on other tv's if it works in color then it is the video jack on that tv. A quick fix might be running it through a box that goes into the cable hook up not the inputs. boxes are pretty cheap like 10 to 20 bucks
