When we connect the DVD-R to the TV, the images are in black and white only. This not just for DVD playback but for menu's etc as well
Any suggestions? I don't have a "switch" on the back of my player as suggested by another answer.
Since my son dropped the remote our DVD-R won't play in colour. No idea of which Panasonic DVD-R it is, just 4 yrs old from new. All menus and playback in B&W - sound quality fine. Must be simple fix but tried everything: new batteries in remote; checked all SCARTs; rebooted everything; re-installed factory settings. TV works fine with other inputs so not TV. Help pls?! UK query so no US specific info pls - and if you are kind enough to help, pls put in idiot-proof English as I can't make head nor tail of much of the response material on here! Thx

Any Incorrectly connected or defective cables can cause your DVD to display black and white images. If you Are using Component or RCA/Scart Cables follow the below steps :
You must match the colored plugs on the cable ends to the color coded jacks on your home theater and TV

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.
well a dvd player is only going to playback the media it is reading. So if the dvd is a reproduction of a b/w western then b/w is correct but if you play a dvd from the present then it should be in color unless the tv it is connected to is faulty. Try connecting to another tv to see if problem repeats on another tv
You are running in the wrong format.
If you are in the USA then you need to set the Bose system to NTSC. If you are in another part of the globe then set it to PAL.
The other thing is to make sure your TV is set the correct way as well. The only other thing that will cause this is if you are trying to playback a PAL dvd on an NTSC system (and the other way around of course)
All the options you need will be in the setup menus for both the TV and Bose.
Hope that helps
That should solve your problems.
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.
