Black and White video on S-Video output

Recently, my unit has been displaying its S-Video output only in black and white. I have tried swapping out cables (ruling those out). I have displayed the video on both a TV and a projector and have also run a different DVD player into the TV using the S-Video cables and works fine (thus ruling out the TV). The Yellow RCA Video output is in color, as it should be.

The Concept of S-video is Splited Video Signal (Luminance for black and white, Chrominance for colors), in your case the luminance is ok but there is no chrominance out. Expert technician is required: Check for dry solder at the s-video out outlet. Good Luck Toufic Malek

My dvd player is hooked up to t.v. but only plays movies in black/white


How is the DVD player connected to the TV? If you are using component video, check that the cables are connected correctly.

If you switch the order on two of the cables, the black and white result is common. So double-check that the red, blue and green connections (RPbPy) have been connected to both devices in the same order. Next try a different set of component video cables, in case one of the wires is damaged.

If possible, try a different type of connection to rule out a damaged input/output. Connect the TV to a different DVD player or the DVD player to another TV, if possible, to rule out similar damage.

Please add a comment with the connection type for additional support. I hope this helps.

Tv screen turns black and red when playing through pioneer receiver


Usually when I hear of solid colors that display on a TV, my first solution would be to change the cable. We know your DVD player is working as you connected it straight to your TV and you report no problems. I assume you are using a composite cable (red, white, and yellow) Red and White being the Audio and Yellow your video.

But since your player works...and your tv works under the same input, then the only other issue would be the output cable from the receiver or the actual composite input or output connector is faulty.

try a video game system in place of the dvd player through your receiver..if it happens again, then change the receiver's output cable...if it still persists then your reciever's output connector is faulty.

I hope this helps.

Recently got a Sharp HD tv and trying to connect the wii to it... the wii picture only comes up in black/white? how can this be fixed.


Hi there,
Apparently the settings on your Wii are set to be displayed in PAL (Japan), where your TV is trying to output it as NTSC, hence they are conflicting. Check the settings in your Wii and change it to NTSC to see if that corrects your problem. I would also check the connection for your AV Cables or Component Cables, they may be loose or plugged in improperly.

LT32HVE only in black and white with component inputs...definitely the proper red is plugged in because we swapped it just in case and it did not change the problem. Also when trying to bring up the menu...


On component inputs the color is carried by the green connection. I would check your green cable. It also carries the video which you seem to have. Since the menu comes up black and white also does it do this in composite also? If it does it is most likely your main board. If your green blue and red cables are ok and you still have black and white it is also most likely your main board. Component uses digital portion of main board. Composite does not

The sreen is black, and the monitor light is orange


This usually indicates an input problem. There are number of things to check:

Make sure the screen is plugged into a working output on the video card - if you can, test the video with a different screen.

Try a different cable; Swap for the same type of cable, or, if available, use a different output method(Such as HDMI).

If using an adapter on the cable, try using a different adapter.

Test the cable on a different display, if possible.

Ultimately, if the video card, cable, and connector are all working, or the display is still not, its likely a bad input board within the display - if you're savvy and have some time to kill, replacement boards cost between 20-70 bucks on ebay.

Sony Bravia with Phillps dvd player


The DVD player may have multiple output formats that can be displayed. Sounds like you have the composite output selected when you have the component output selected on the DVD player. Check the menu options on the DVD player and confirm they match the way you have the player connected

Black and White Only


I had a similar problem when I first connected my son's xbox using the Audio/Video cable (red, white, & yellow connectors). I connected the cable to the TV correctly, but incorrectly selected "component" as the input on the TV setup. Result was black and white display. Switch your TV input mode to "AV" or "Audio/Video" and you will get color.

FYI, "component" TV mode is only used with devices that use the red, green, & blue connectors.

Panasonic DVD-RV32 DVD Player-No image on RCA output


Hi Obviously the unit is playing the disk because your audio is fine, and getting some kind of black & white picture out of the composite, means that the video processor is probably ok. The most likely things to check then is the yellow video cable, (just swap the red or white in place of the yellow on both the DVD and your tv to test), or possibly the yellow RCA jack on the back of your DVD has gotten loose. If you have not done so, try wiggling it gently to see if your video comes back. If it does, and you are handy with a soldering iron, you can probably repair it yourself. Other than that, it would be a problem for a repair shop. (and a strange one!) Hope this helps, and good luck!

Video output showing black and white display


Make sure the DVD is not on the PAL system. Trying to watch a PAL dvd on a NTSC TV or DVD player will play it back in black and white only.
