Question about Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U 42 in. LCD HDTV
I have just purchased an LC-37D44U LCD TV. I have connected my DVD and VCR to the inputs on the back of the TV. These are typical RCA connectors. When I view the screen and play a movie, it appears as a grainy black and white image. If I plug in the TV to the HDMI port on the back of the DVD, the image is in colour and appears to be crisp. I have changed RCA cables, to no avail. Any idea why this is happening? Thanks for your feedback. Steve
First thing- why not just use the HDMI instead of standard def cables in the first place?
If the RCA-video (yellow composite cable) is not producing color, 1 of 2 things may be wrong:
1. You accidentally connected the a/v cables [yellow white and red] to [red green and blue] component inputs or vice versa, or..
2. Your TV or DVD player is somehow set to the wrong video format. Check the DVD settings for video output format and video connector type. Format should be NTSC, and connector should be composite and/or s-video for the cables you're using.
If this is only happening when connecting the DVD player through the VCR, then check to make sure the same cables connecting the DVD player to the the VCR are also connected to the TV from the VCR.
BTW- if this is just to record DVDs to a VCR, I'll tell you it's not worth it. If your DVD player has an HDMI port, your picture quality will be so much better than if you're watching a VCR copy of one. Your new HDTV will look worse than an old standard def TV. Worse; I'm not kidding.
I hope some of this helps.
