Question about Televison & Video
The picture is fine on the HD channels but when i play a new DVD i get no color how can I correct this?
SOURCE: DVD won't play movies in color
RCA cable connectors (red,white, yellow) are usually for an analog setup. You could still use these for "component" setup, but know the difference with color stamps as follows:
Component color stamps are "blue, green, red" ( blue is marked Pb, green is marked Y, red is marked Pr)
RCA color stamps your using are "red, white, yellow"
Here are the proper hook up method for "Component" using your "RCA" connectors:
On both the TV and DVD component setup:
Plug the red RCA fitting in the component port marked "Pr (red)
Plug the white RCA fitting in the component port marked "Pb (blue)
Plug the yellow RCA fitting in the component port marked "Y (green)
Be sure this setup is the same for the TV's component input ports, and the DVD's component output ports.
For optimum picture quality you may want to purchase component cables as the gage is thicker giving better impedance match resulting in better picture and sound quality.

Hi, try switching your tv to channel 3 or 4 and see if that works- there should be a switch on the back of your DVD player beside the Coaxial Cable outputs-it will allow you to use Channel 3 or 4 as the default to play dvd's. I hope that helps-if more detail or wiring diagram is needed-please leave make and model numbers and i'll try to help.
Cheers and have a Happy Holiday Season!

check to see you have the cables required by the tv. usually you need hdmi or dvid for hd display. digital rights management protocols have resulted in chips in playing devices that allow only the use of the referenced cables to protect content from being copied. in some sets they default to not playing in hd, but still play something.
look there first, otherwise you may have an input source mismatch. follow instructions on the dvd player first, then make sure the tv has compatible settings.
if that does not solve, you have a service issue with one or both.

The reason the picture is blue on the DVD is because you have poor video cables running the feed, probably RCA yellow cable im guessing. Get some nice component cables for the DVD feed and it will fix you right up.
