My dvd's are all in black and white for some


Try checking the connections between the dvd player and the tv, make sure they are fully pushed in.

If that doesnt work and you have a spare socket on the back of your tv try swapping the lead to that one.

I know that with scart leads if they arnt fully pushed in you will get a black and white picture.

I hope its thats simple..

Bose lifestyle 48 dvd black and white only

Go to the "Bose" menu screen viewing on your TV (make sure no dvd is in the player) Go to your Video controls and check your output, chances are, if your using the component output your player is set to "S-Video". Should fix the problem. Hope this helps. If it's still not viewing correctly, post a comment and I will help you some more

check your connections on the back of the tv and back of the dvd player. make sure you are using the proper conections on the back of the tv. if you connect the RCA (composite) cables (red yellow white) you should be going from the red yellow white on the tv to the red yellow white on the dvd player. if you have the component(red blue green) connection on the dvd connected to the red yellow white on the tv, you may get a black and white picture. If this does not work, check the manual for the dvd player and see if there is a way to turn "Progressive Scan" features off, some older TV's cannot handle a progressive scan dvd player.

Can only get black and white images when playing DVD's

Check your settings - video format. It should be NTSC for USA standard. If it is set to European (PAL) it will be in black & white. Hope this helps.

No color when playing DVD

your player is set to the wrong format ie either ntsc if your in europe or pal if your in america, you need to go to the setup and make sure the dvd setup is for your region. pal in europe,ntsc in america..most dvd players automatically switch.but sometimes people change the settings without knowing.
