Question about Sony DVP-NS330 DVD Player

1 Answer

DVD player only plays DVD in black and white - what's wrong?

DVD player is connected directly to colour TV via audio & video cable and comes up on TV AV2 channel but only in black and white.
TV plays Digibox in clour on both AV1 and AV2 channels, so why no colour from the DVD player. 
Have tried all combinations of Picture Mode settings on the DVD player but the picture remains firmly Black and White.
What to do?

    Previously DVD player happily played all my DVD's from around the world, it now appears to only play in colour DVD's bought in UK ! Can my children have been fiddling whilst I've been away. Is there a switch that Im not aware of that changes regions, eg DVD's bought in Sri Lanka only now play in black and white.  Any suggestions please.

    Usually, DVD players come locked to a certain region. Most of the time if you buy a player from a certain region then it will only play dvd's from that place. If I purchased a player from the us for example, it will usually only play dvd's purchased in the us. You mentioned that it played dvd's from all over. For most cases I have seen where all dvd's were playable, it's usually because it's been unlocked for every region. This isn't normal but it's possible. I would check the player settings from the menu and enable all regions. There is no logical reason why they would play one time and not play now. Check that and see if it works.

    Where is everything connected? All of the connections are color coded so follow the colors on the back of the player and the on the television.

Ok,
I'm not sure what you mean by digibox. Under what conditions are you able to see things in color? Is a digibox a seperate device you can get to work with the same connection as your player? If one device displays color on the same connection and another doesn't then that seems to rule out the television being the problem. Can you clarify a little more?

Tv screen turns black and red when playing through pioneer receiver


Usually when I hear of solid colors that display on a TV, my first solution would be to change the cable. We know your DVD player is working as you connected it straight to your TV and you report no problems. I assume you are using a composite cable (red, white, and yellow) Red and White being the Audio and Yellow your video.

But since your player works...and your tv works under the same input, then the only other issue would be the output cable from the receiver or the actual composite input or output connector is faulty.

try a video game system in place of the dvd player through your receiver..if it happens again, then change the receiver's output cable...if it still persists then your reciever's output connector is faulty.

I hope this helps.

DVD Playback is only Black & White


Different areas use different colour systems. The most common types being PAL and NTSC. What I think you might have done is changed the colour type setting to one that is not compatible with your TV. If you have the manual look up the colour settings. If you haven't got the manual look around the main menu for them. If all else fails use the factory reset.

Our Emerson EWD7003 now only plays in black and white after DISH hookup


Does the Tv channels show colour? if yes! I would try another audio/video cable connection from the DVD player to the Tv and try another input to the set, to see if that will help.

When I play a DVD, it is in black and White. When I play the tv it is in colour. Can't get the DVD to play in colour!


You have one of several possible problems, ranging from best case scenario to worst case scenario:
A DVD video that is supposed to be black and white - try a different disc.
Some setting on the DVD player is set to monotone - check manufacturer's instructions
A bad set of cables connecting the dvd player to the tv - test a known good set of cables
A bad output on the DVD player - test DVD player with a different TV.
A bad input on the TV - try another input if possible, test TV with a known working video input.

My dvd player only plays movies in black and white. When I watch tv, it's in color so I know its not the tv.


Hi,

I suspect you may have connected a COMPOSITE cable (red/white/yellow RCA type) to the COMPONENT video input sockets on the back of the TV.

COMPONENT requires 3 RCA type video cables - the plugs and sockets are usually colour-coded red, green, and blue. COMPOSITE only uses one RCA type video cable - the plugs and sockets are usually colour-coded yellow.
If you connect the yellow video cable to one of the three component inputs you will get a black and white picture although you will still have audio if the red and white cables are correctly connected.

If you are using a COMPOSITE cable (red/white/yellow RCA type), please check your connections. Make sure you have not connected to any sockets - either on the TV or the back of the DVD player - under the heading of "COMPONENT" - or individually marked "Pr", "Cr", "Pb", "Cb" or "Y".


If you have verified that you are using the correct sockets on the TV and it still doesn't work or if you are using any other type of cable, please let me know which cable you are using and the model number of the TV and the DVD player. I will then be able to assist you further.

Regards,
BElectric

No colour when watching dvds ok for everything elese


You will have to make sure you are connecting them with the red and white cables on audio and the yellow on video at both ends, as both your dvd and tv have low def and hi def cabling options.

That means Red and White to Audio at each end and Yellow to video at both ends. If you connect the yellow cable to one of the other three connectors at iether end you will only get black and white as they are meant for a different type of connection.

To get the maximum quality out of your sets you may want to purchase a set of Hi-Definition Component cables which will give you a set of five cables, still red and white for audio but now red, green, blue for video.

Hope this heps a bit more,


Chris

Same problem with an older JVC player. One end of the S-video cable was loose. Pushed in in tight and everything ok again. Cheap fix if it works for you.

DVD Plays in Black and White


Depending what cables you have, try plugging only the yellow cable into "video out", I previously had red, white, and yellow cables plugged into "comopents out" and only got black and white. Doing only the yellow into video out gave me color.
