Re: the colour has gone
You may have to clean the record/playback head. Firs remove the top casing and watch as the casette loads,making sure that it wraps the tape at least 1/3 of the diameter,this is of course not a precise measure but it will be close enough. If that's all well then you've got to clean the head. You can pick up the cleaning tool at your nearest electronics store(Radio Shack) and you'll need a small amount of denatured alcohol. While turning the head gently with one finger aplly a small amount of pressure with the dampened tool. Make several rotations. More importantly, after this, clean the three or four tiny slots at the base of the head(these actually do all the work. You can clean them buy rubbing back and forth with an old toothbrush soaked in denatured alcohol. Then spin the head while blowing through a straw to dry the unit, otherwise it will eat your first tape. Leave the top off and turn the unit on and off a couple times to do the final dry on the head then put in a tape and try it. Thanks Dana.

Your current TV may not be "multi-system", which is needed to play tapes that have been recorded on a VCR that operates on a different "colour system". VCRs can be "multi-system" too, in which case, you select its output to match the playback TV's colour system. When you previously got the tapes to play, your VCR and TV were either "colour system matched" with each other (and the tapes), or "multi-system" http://helpguide.sony.net/dsc/1510/v1/en/contents/TP0000576912.html
A simpler issue may just be a faulty video cable between the VCRs and the TV, assuming you used the same cable in all cases.
As long as you have the picture it means that DVD's Laser Eye is Ok..
Pls Check your connections to make sure the audio and video cables of both VCR and DVD are properly hooked up to the television. Color coded cables should be matched with the jacks of equal color. Yellow corresponds to video while red and white are both audio.
Ensure the DVD is in standby mode if you are not getting picture from the VCR. The DVD cannot be running at the same time as the VCR is playing when you want to see the VCR picture.
Connections with combo units are often inconvenient, forcing you to use separate video hookups for each section (DVD, VCR), a problem for older TVs. This player has it figured out: a single RF or composite-video connection to a television will display either the DVD or the VCR signal, depending on which format you're viewing. If you want to view DVDs in S-video or in component-video (either interlaced or progressive-scan), you will need to use two inputs. though: any component- or S-video-equipped TV will offer sufficient inputs for both of the SLV-D350P's formats. It's a different arrangement for audio: you can listen through a single set of stereo analog-audio cables for each component or--if you want to enjoy DVDs in discrete 5.1-channel surround sound--you can send the DVD's audio to a compatible audio/video receiver and a multichannel speaker system through a digital-audio interconnect (either optical or coaxial,). The unit also comes with an RF cable that will transmit DVD/VHS audio and video to your TV. In conclusion,for a best tech solution I prpose you to connect DVD audio directly to your Stereo and listen as separate audio source.while Video goes to TV as usual.Hope this helps! if you need more help pls contact me..Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :) Thanks
If your using the component outputs from your DVD player I would first check to make sure that the cables for the Red and Blue channels are connected properly. If the cable is connected correctly then try replacing both the Red and Blue channel cable. If this fails to fix the problem try connecting to another component input on your TV if you have one available.
You might also want to check to see if you switched on the progressive scan switch on the back of the VCR/DVD unit. If you know someone with another DVD player have them bring it over and see if the problem is still exists.
If the green picture is still present then the problem is and internal problem with the TV and you will need to find a repair center for it. If the problem goes away then the problem is with the VCR/DVD combo unit. You can at this point also try using just the Video Out from the DVD player.
Hope these suggestions will help you with your problem.
Is the picture still or it scrolls? You may be playing NTSC tapes and DVDs on a PAL TV or vice versa. If your TV supports multiple systems, try switching from one system to another (like NTSC from PAL).
