When my dvd player is playing, the image is in blacka and white and the screen is a double image, or split screen, side by side. In other words, the picture displayed is 2 rather than one.
My Panasonic DMR-ES40V has the same problem, split screen and B&W. I noticed it after a recent power failure from an ice storm. I can't get a full screen color picture.

Re: dvd player split screen
I had the same problem. It turned out to be my cable that went from the dvd player to the TV. I replaced with new cable & everything worked fine again. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

it sounds like the vertical hold on your tv set needs adjusting also with your tv and dvd are there a set of three plugs usually red,white and yellow in colour ?? if so connect these with a cable as this by passes the tv tuner hope this helps regards JIm
I am having the same split screen black and white problem. I don't think anything simple will fix this. I have looked into the unit and almost all the video processing happens on one little PC board under the DVD. I think that the capacitors on the bottom of this board are at fault, as there have been MANY noted failures of Panasonic Professional DVC decks due to these type capacitors failing.
Could be that some combination of the progressive scan and the line input is confusing your system. Sometimes the line doubler on the TV set causes this when recieving a 480p input. If this effect doesn't reproduce on another set, then there you have it.
Try turning progressive scan off, or change between the analog(yellow) video, the component(RGB), and the S video(fat one with pins).
