DVD player will not show in color.

I have a dvd player (Curtis) hooked up to my TV w/ SVideo and it works just fine except now it only shows black and white pictures. It used to do great color and just stopped. What could the problem be?

Re: DVD player will not show in color.

Could be loose or damaged SVideo cable or cable getting interferance from other equipment. try moving cable around and see if color comes back.

Cant get color picture when playing DVD's

I too had the same problem. On the Vzio there are AV plug ins on the left side (not the back, but the left side). Use these jacks when connecting to the DVD player and choose the AV button on the TV remote. Viola!

Recently bought a Sony Bravia 20KDLS4000. Sony DVD player DVD-NS575P was compatible with 3 year old Sony TV but with Bravia, the DVD image is in Black and White. TV gets color fine. Thanks for your...

Try to set your video output settings on your dvd player . I assume you used to connect to your old tv by using svideo and now you are using another connection like component, scart or hdmi.If the video output setttings on your dvd are still on svideo you will have to set it to rgb or component or else you will get black and white images..

No color when switching to component cable

To Change DVD Player Video Output to Progressive Scan: With your DVD Player turned on, and your TV turned on, press and hold the PREV/VIDEO button for at least 3 seconds (this puts you into Video Output mode). Press the PREV/VIDEO button to access different video output options. Each time you press
PREV/VIDEO, the type of video being displayed appears next to the Display menu. Look for PSCAN on your DVD player display panel. At this time, your progressive scan on TV should be working.

Same as other poster: Player only plays black and white

It sounds like the circuitry which actuates the color drives for the screen are not working, this would ba analogous to adjusting for a B&W picture on a color TV you have color but the screen shows black and white. I would get a schematic for this set and measure the voltages on the color processor that connects to the screen since you know that the external jack has color. If possible I can help you troubleshoot this, if you need me to help out.

Dvd showing in black and white

I'm assuming you're using the yellow ended video cable and two audio cables hooked up to your TV to display the signal. If so, I would just make sure they are connected in the correct output jacks on your dvd player and that they match up with the input jacks on your TV. If so, then I'd try another DVD player to see if that one plays OK.

DVD Plays in Black and White

Depending what cables you have, try plugging only the yellow cable into "video out", I previously had red, white, and yellow cables plugged into "comopents out" and only got black and white. Doing only the yellow into video out gave me color.
