DVDs are only in black and white

I just got a used Samsung 53" TV. My DVD movies are only in black and white. I tried all combinations of wire hookups. I finally did get the audio to work. But movies are not showing in color.

Bring it back to the place of purchase since the item is under warranty, this is a manufacture defect and you are in your perfect right to have a replacement.

My dvds are playing in black and white

Check your cables going from your DVD player to your TV to make sure everything is plugged in all the way and correctly. If the problem continues try a DVD that you know works and is a color movie and see how it plays.

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

I have a samsung 32 inch LCD HDTV and trying to hook up to Pioneer DVD player. There are three colors of wires to connect the DVD to the TV. I get the sound(audio) but not the video. It just shows black...

Just make sure you hook up the wires to the correct plugs. They should be colr coded - red and white for audio and yellow for video. The sockets on the TV will have the same color code. If not, its just a matter of trying various combinations. If nothing works, then try using a different cable.

Color to black and white and back again

Since you're using a composite cable (yellow RCA) that carries both luma (brightness) and chroma (color) information, it's not the cable that is the problem.

That means it's either the DVD player itself, or the TV. If you have another video device (VCR, etc) that you can connect to the TV, try that. If the other device also goes from color to black and white, then it's your TV. Otherwise the problem is your DVD player.

Since your TV only has mono audio (white RCA, but no red) I would recommend getting a new TV if the TV is to blame.
