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.

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.

How do I connect to tv there is nothing on the screen from the DVDs player


It depends on your connections for one thing. I did find this piece of information on the DVD player:
"One thing they do not state (in the manual) is that if you are playing it through your Scart socket to your TV. Your TV's Scart socket must be PAL60 compliant".

If they both have HDMI sockets I would get a HDMI cable and connect via that. You will also get a better picture than a scart.

If you are using a scart the connector can also become faulty either inside or a faulty pin so check that too.

My Plasma 42PD580DTA


I assume your DVD is coming up in colour when you plug it into a standard scart connector? Have you tried using a different S-Video cable because this sound symptomatic of a dodgy lead?
Check the SCART end of your lead for any bent or broken pins.

Failing that if the problem lies with the TV itself I'd really recommend having a pro look at it. Plasma's are expensive and opening it up if you don't know what you are doing is a bad idea.

I need to know how to hook my DVD player to ,y Samsung TV. I have it hooked up and have a picture but its in black and white.


look on the back of the television and the DVD player, there should be a SCART socket and/or red, white and yellow AV sockets, either use a SCART lead and connect it to the SCART on the DVD player and the TV.Or use an AV lead with 3 auxiliary shape connectors and match the colour of each connector with the female sockets on both the TV and the DVD player instead of using the other component connections.

Ghosting of picture from a Panasonic home cinema system


There must be a fault in the screening of the internal wiring to the scart outlet in the home theatre system. I simply changed the way the player was connected to the TV and the interference disappeared:-

1.) I used the RCA video outlet instead of the scart lead. Picture quality was not compromised. FYI the Panasonic Plasma TV I have has only RGB video input sockets at the back, so I used a scart to RCA adaptor to overcome this problem of connecting old technology to new.

2.) The surround sound when playing DVDs is generated directly from the home theatre system so there was no need to connect the audio from the home theatre system to the TV

3.) I used a pair of RCA leads to connect the "audio out" from the TV to the "audio in"on the home theatre system to provide the option of TV sound through the home theatre system.

Cant see dvds on my emerson tv


Hello.

In many cases by connecting the DVD via a scart cable (depending in what country you live in if your system supports it)
the dvd will send a signal to the TV to switch over to RGB mode when you start playing the dvd. Rember to make sure the scart connectors are firmly pressed into their sockets on both tv and dvd.

Also if you found out how to switch channels directly on the TV try to go through them ...you might find the AV channel that will show the picture from your dvd.

Hope this will help you.

Good Luck.

How can i watch dvds on this old sanyo tv?


does your tv have a scart socket or is it pre scart, if it does, and you connect the dvd player via the scart then the tv should auromativally switch to av when the dvd player is switched on. failing that, if you have no scart, then the only way you can watch dvd is by connecting a flylead from dvd player to tv, (take out antenna and put it in that socket) and then start a search if you can, normally the buttons for this are behind a flap somewhere on the tv. if you have no scart or a way of tuning tv, then i dont think you can watch dvd through that tv

DVD playback no playback


Sounds like the scart lead is not in straight. Scart connectors have the audio pins at one end, and the video pins at the other. If the lead isn't in straight then you often get sound and no picture and vice versa.

Check the connection by pushing the scart lead in securely. (Both DVD and TV end of the lead)

Failing that could be a dodgy lead.

Goodmans Tv wont show dvds


Usually with DVD players, picture & no sound, or sound & no picture is caused by the scart lead not being plugged in properly.


Sound pins are at one end of the connector and audio pins at the other.

If you are using scart make sure that the plugs at both ends are pushed in all the way. The plastic part of the plug should just touch the socket.

If you are using S-Video (Round connector with 4 pins) you also need to connect a twin phono-phono (Red & Black or White) lead to carry the audio, as S-Video only carries video.
