Using component video cables, the DVD picture is in black and white. I have switched the cables around and can get a very blue picture only. The DVD worked fine with a different television set. There do not seem to be any settings within the DVD player set up that need to be changed for video and I have already changed the setting on the back of the DVD player.

Insert a DVD lens-cleaning disc into your player and press
"Play" to clean the DVD laser, eliminating picture problems due to read
errors. Do not use a CD cleaning disc as the brushes on these discs can
damage your laser.
Wipe your DVDs clean of all visible marks and dirt using a
lint-free cleaning cloth moistened with rubbing alcohol or glass
cleaner. This further fixes read errors which can damage the quality of
picture and sound.
Disconnect your DVD player from the TV or receiver you have
it connected to. Reconnect the DVD player directly to the "AV" or "Video
In" port of your television, firmly pushing the plug into place, to
eliminate possible noise from the receiver and ensure a clean
Connect your DVD player using an S-Video, component video or
HDMI cable. Standard yellow/red/white RCA connectors cannot carry the
high-quality signal that DVD discs are capable of transmitting, and will
display a particularly poor picture on flat-screen high definition
televisions. Use an HDMI cable, if your television and player support
it, or a red/blue/green component video cable.
Press "Setup" on your DVD remote and enter "Picture
Settings." Make sure your DVD player is set to display images in the
correct screen format ("Widescreen" or "16 x 9" for HDTV sets,
"Standard" or "4 x 3" for older square sets) and scan mode. If you are
using a DVD player that supports "Progressive Scan" on an HDTV or
flat-screen set, activate this setting; for older sets, choose
"Interlace" if given a choice.
How is the DVD player connected to the TV? If you are using component video, check that the cables are connected correctly.
If you switch the order on two of the cables, the black and white result is common. So double-check that the red, blue and green connections (RPbPy) have been connected to both devices in the same order. Next try a different set of component video cables, in case one of the wires is damaged.
If possible, try a different type of connection to rule out a damaged input/output. Connect the TV to a different DVD player or the DVD player to another TV, if possible, to rule out similar damage.
Please add a comment with the connection type for additional support. I hope this helps.
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.
are you using component video cables (red,green,blue) or composite (yellow,red,white)
most of the time if the blue or red cables from the component area seated firmly they cause the picture to be in black and white.
you did not connect it to the right port in you tv with the right cables. if it came with a cable using red, blue, and green wire you need to connect all three to the appropriate place on the tv in this case the red is a video cable and not audio they are white and black in component video... if it is the other way around you have a red white and yellow cable the red and white are audio and yellow is the only video and needs to be connected to a yellow jack on the television
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.
