We have a new VISIO HD TV. We have a Sony DVD/VHS combo player. Tried playing DVD and picture comes up in 480 dpi, in black and white instead of color and you can see pixels.


Assuming that there is no issue with the brand new TV or the DVD player....

1. Black and white issue could be due to a misrouted video component cabletomcattech17.jpg

2. The pixels could be just a problem with the low resolution that the DVD may be putting out or the current aspect ratio setting.

There is a regular video out jack in the rear of the DVD player

Bose lifestyle 48 dvd black and white only


Go to the "Bose" menu screen viewing on your TV (make sure no dvd is in the player) Go to your Video controls and check your output, chances are, if your using the component output your player is set to "S-Video". Should fix the problem. Hope this helps. If it's still not viewing correctly, post a comment and I will help you some more

Coby DVD-937 playing DVDs in Black and White


you did not connect it to the right port in you tv with the right cables. if it came with a cable using red, blue, and green wire you need to connect all three to the appropriate place on the tv in this case the red is a video cable and not audio they are white and black in component video... if it is the other way around you have a red white and yellow cable the red and white are audio and yellow is the only video and needs to be connected to a yellow jack on the television

Only black and white


If you are playing different region dvds, they can be of different color formats also
(US = NTSC, Europe = PAL). If your television is not multi-format then non-compatible
DVDs will play black and white. The solution is to purchase a mutli-format TV (accepts
both PAL and NTSC formats)

DVD plays only in black and white


Hey, I had this problem on Thanksgiving Day, trying to watch a dvd on my mother's HDTV. You should be able to hook up most standard dvd players to hdtvs. First you have 3 cords, mine were red, yellow, and white. The connections go as follows:

HDTV:
Audio| Component. The white cord should be in a white audio slot. The yellow cord should be in a yellow component slot (video) and the red cord should be in a red video component slot labeled Pr/Cr. Make sure you match the component numbers. For instance, if you want to use component one, then hook all of the cords into the slots for component one. Most hdtvs have multiple component hookups ( think multiple "channels" for your game system, dvd player, etc) so it's important that the corresponding cords go to the correct component slots.

DVD:
Match the yellow and white cords to the appropriately colored slots. The red cord should go into the slot labeled component video out Cr/Pr. Not the red audio out. This worked for me. Hope this helps.

Picture only shows in black & white when playing DVD


Same problem with an older JVC player. One end of the S-video cable was loose. Pushed in in tight and everything ok again. Cheap fix if it works for you.
