Resetting the TV
If the buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped responding. Reset the TV as follows:

NOTE:
Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.
1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the TV.

Hope it may help you;

My philips dvp3560 will only playback in black and white


Check the TV System menu:

[TV System]
Change this setting if the video does not appear
correctly. By default, this setting matches the most
common setting for TVs in your country.
• [PAL] - For a PAL-system TV. (European TVs)
• [Multi] - For TV that is compatible with both
PAL and NTSC.
• [NTSC] - For an NTSC-system TV. (American TVs)

Also try:

[Picture Setting]
Select a predefined set of picture color settings or
customize the personal setting.
• [Standard] - Original color setting.
• [Bright] - Vibrant color setting.
• [Soft] - Warm color setting.
• [Personal] - Customize the color setting. Set
the level of brightness, contrast, tint and color
saturation, then press OK

Have you try: NTSC on PAL TV On • NTSC discs will play correctly on PAL-only TVs.
Off Use if your TV is already NTSC-compatible.

Many recent PAL TVs are compatible with NTSC input and so this setting can be switched off. Check the operating
instructions that came with your TV. See also About NTSC on PAL TV on page 124 for related information.

I got a new TV, plugged everything in, the dvd/vcr player is working but it's in black and white. I've tried all of the plug ins in the back of it. . . still black and white. Getting a little frustrated...


Check your TV to make sure it is set to the correct video system for your country (e.g. PAL); as well as the 'TV system' output of your DVD/VCR combo - make sure these both match. Chances are either one is set to NTSC 3.58 which will produce black &white - if your TV is multistandard (PAL/NTSC) then set its system to AUTO, otherwise set it to the relevant system to match the combo. The question is, do other video sources connected as well as the TV tuner produce colour? If so, it is a system mismatch between devices. If not, there is possibly a chroma decoder fault inside your TV, which if under warranty won't cost you parts or labour, but this too can produce 'no colour'.

However I strongly suggest that you go into the menus of both TV and combo, to be sure they are both set to the same system (PAL or NTSC) - no mismatches before considering any further courses of action.

anteetina,

most probably your problem is within color system settings. It's either PAL/NTSC or PAL SECAM signals being produced by your player.

1) try to check your TV screen with regards to color system it use, check the color setting if it does indicate "Auto" "PAL" or "NTSC" try to choose "auto" and see if any changes will occur.

note: you can also check the service manual of your DVD player of what color system it produce and if it's match with your TV screen

cheers.

There can one of two problems here. Either your DVD player's output is set to NTSC and you are attempting to play it through a PAL (European) TV, or you are perhaps using the SVHS output incorrectly. The solution is to access the player's setup menu and ensure the video output is set to your standard (PAL or NTSC). Hope this helps!
