    I had a AWA dvd player before this one because they will play dvd from other zones but had to replace it with a new model all have pluged in is yellow to yellow ther are 3 red spots and 3 white spots in the 5.1 audio output i have tryed all combos i have used the leeds that were supplied with dvd./ in digital audio output there are also red black green and blue. All connections appear good there is no other source. should i try an s video cable?

    if the s-video does it also then there is something wrong with the dvd player , but make sure that the yellow component video connection is connected to the yellow video out connection and the L & R audio connections on both the dvd and tv( you can try another RCA connector cable just to make sure the cable is not deffective) ( also when using yellow video in on tv then the s-video on same input cannot be connected)
    is the cable deffective or does it do it with another cable as well ?
    or does it do it with just the s-video connection ?

New lcd tv and dvd player is playing movies in black & white

1. Verify connections are color coded.

2. If they are correct, take out movie, press Play/Stop at same time on the front of the unit (not remote) to reset any settings that may have been changed.

Dvd plays in black and White

There are a couple of things you could try with this. One, is to make sure that the video input is connected properly. The second would be to make sure that the DVD that played in black and white automatically changed your settings to PAL rather than NTSC.

Playing movies in black and white

Use a scart lead to connect it to the TV, that should cure it.

If you are using the s-video jack to connect the DVD to the TV, the jack could be loose or the wire could be bad. The s-video cable has 2 signals, the black-and-white (luminance) and the color (chroma). If the chroma signal is not getting through, the picture will be in black and white.
