I had the player under our video player when it started these boxes rolling through the picture quite often. I moved the DVD player on top of video player thinking it was the extra weight that was causing the problem. It helped for a little while, but now seems to be coming back. Not as often yet, but still annoying when we are wanting to watch a movie. It is not the DVD itself, because I can put the movie in another player and it works great. I have run a DVD cleaner through the player several times with no noticeable difference. Thank you for your suggestions.

Do you have a newer TV or a older one lets start with a newer models does your tv have 3 or more jacks on the back or front you should see a RED, YELLOW and WHITE if you have a HDTV you should see more. (LETS HOOK UP) Did your DVD/VCR come with a cables if not you will need to buy at least 2 they are called RCA cables Lets start with the dvd/vcr combo on the back you should see a (LINE OUT) this is where playback or your picture and sound come out. On the back of the TV you should see a (LINE IN) this is where you plug it in to. RED goes to RED, WHITE goes to WHITE and YELLOW goes to YELLOW. To Record you will need to hook up the line in on your combo and the line out to your tv. ( IF YOU HAVE AN OLDER T.V WITH NONE OF THOSE JACKS ) you will need to buy a RF- MODULATOR the are cheap it is a box that let you hook a cable wire to a little box and the RCA jacks to you combo and you will turn your tv to channel 3 or 4
There are two ways. One is the old way and the other by computer.
First the old way, you can get a video processor/mixer. These vary in price depending on how much you want to improve the image or add things or even do tricks. The video player ouput is fed into the box and the output to TV so you can see the effect the box has on the picture. Most will improve signal, colour and stop picture rolls and jump (they won't deal with macrovision). Some have sound controls too! They were used a lot for camcorder work in the past. So you might get one cheap on E-Bay.
And the new way is to connect the video to your PC and you can get software to digitally remaster the video, which it will then output to a DVD recorder. If you have a PC that can handle the big video files, it's more economic and you will get heaps better images.
Ok, I'm not sure what you mean by digibox. Under what conditions are you able to see things in color? Is a digibox a seperate device you can get to work with the same connection as your player? If one device displays color on the same connection and another doesn't then that seems to rule out the television being the problem. Can you clarify a little more?
The VCR is connected throug an audio/video cable (red, white and yellow) This happen because the electronic ciruitry on the combo "read" that the signal is going out to copy, and this devices have a copyraigh protection circuitry tat don't allow to do this, is not your fault, but making the connections like this, the systems automaticly activate this feature. If you can change the tv with one taht at least have the white and yellow RCA terminals, your problem will be solved definitevily.
it really doesnt matter what color the cables are as long as the one from video out on the dvd player is going to video in on the tv then the same for the sound.yellow is generally video and red would be your sound
Check if the recorder is set to output in 'S-Video' or 'SuperVideo' mode, if your TV doesn't understand S-Video you'll get a grainy B&W picture. The VCR should be set to output in PAL for the UK and most of Europe.
