Dvd player only plays in b&w, and connectors dont seem to match up with tv
This only plays dvds in b&W. I have a plasma tv with scart and also Y, Pb/cb,pr/cr inputs
the Pioneer has apparently unlabelled outlets, and whichever way I hook it up the best I can get is b&w or all blue tint or all red tint using the Y, Pb,Pr connections.
everything else works fine, and the sound from the dvd is coming loud and clear through the speakers.

Re: dvd player only plays in b&w, and connectors dont...
Go into the player's setup menu and make sure it's set for the kind of
connection you're actually using (component, S-video, composite).
Also make sure the connections are pushed "all-the-way-in"
Lose connections can cause B&W picture.

The most likely reason for this is that your connections between the DVD player are incorrect. This usually happens when a Composite cable is connected to one the Component input sockets on the back of the TV.
If you are are using a composite cable (red, white, yellow plugs), please make sure the yellow plug is not connected to a socket labelled Y, Pb/Cb, or Pr/Cr on the back of the TV or the DVD/VCR. The yellow plug needs to be connected to a VIDEO OUT socket on the back of the DVD/VCR and a VIDEO IN socket on the back of the TV.
Do not use sockets labelled Y, Pb/Cb, or Pr/Cr on either of them.
If you are unable to determine which sockets to use, please let me know the brand and model number of your VCR/DVD and confirm the model number of your TV is GV42L. I will then be able to draw you a diagram showing the correct connections to use.
for video, 3ways and any of this should work.
Step1, video out of dvd to video in on top at video1 section on tv. or
Step2, svideo out of dvd to svideo in at video1 section on tv. or
Step3. using component video
DVD unit component video out to TV unit component video in at video2
Y to Y input of TV
Pb to Pb input of TV
Pr to Pr input of TV
for audio, connect left/right audio of dvd to left/right input of tv. Input section of TV is in the middle. on tv back panel from left to right is antenna input, IN section - this is it, use this for all your connections.
let us know if you have any issues. thanks.
Make sure that the proper input is selected on the TV. Also, check to be sure that the correct output is activated on the DVD. I'm not familiar with the Technika brand so verify the output selection in the owner's manual.
If those selections are correct, try connecting to the standard AV input using the Red/White/Yel cable connection.
