    I have the same problem as described on the first message. My DVD only captures images on a black and white picture. My first impression is that I will need to convert the signal We have in Brasil (PAL-M) to a NTSC standard to get it colored.Is it corect ? Are there any codes that can be used to activate the firmware to convert the redceptio for a PAl_m >?/

I need to know how to hook my DVD player to ,y Samsung TV. I have it hooked up and have a picture but its in black and white.

look on the back of the television and the DVD player, there should be a SCART socket and/or red, white and yellow AV sockets, either use a SCART lead and connect it to the SCART on the DVD player and the TV.Or use an AV lead with 3 auxiliary shape connectors and match the colour of each connector with the female sockets on both the TV and the DVD player instead of using the other component connections.

When I switch on my dvd even the set up page is in black and white. Originally I was getting no picture so I made sure everything was plugged in. Then I got the black and white.

Check the scart cable , try connecting it to another scart socket on the tv. I would even change the scart lead to make sure its ok. I have had loads of similar problems like that caused by scart leads faulty or connected to the wrong socket.

I would like to know how to connect a dvd player through my samsung vcr the inputs in the back i am not familiar with there are two sets of yellow white and red connections with one side for output and...

Connect from dvd OUT to vcr IN
The yellow connecter is video, red is right audio and white is left audio.
You can purchase converter leads (scart to phono(the red/white/yellow connecters) or many other combinations) if needed.
If you have scart connections ( a block of 21 pins) then use that if possible as it will give a better picture.
Connect the dvd out to vcr in and vcr out to the tv in.
NOTE. if you connect this way you will find that the copyright protection will make viewing dvds quite poor quality and may even be black and white or even the picture may "roll"
You may want to buy a scart block to connect more scarts to the tv then it has, also you can get these with different connections.

My dvd's are all in black and white for some


Try checking the connections between the dvd player and the tv, make sure they are fully pushed in.

If that doesnt work and you have a spare socket on the back of your tv try swapping the lead to that one.

I know that with scart leads if they arnt fully pushed in you will get a black and white picture.

I hope its thats simple..

Black/Grey/White screen with bars

OK, I'm making a few assumptions here

You say you got a Megadrive but it sounds like your from the states
It sounds to me like you are running a Pal system on a NTSC TV or a NTSC system on a PAL TV.

It also sounds like you may of used compersite scart lead or Phono lead.

Make sure your TV can cope with RGB
Because the only way to get a good picture is to use a RGB scart lead. do these leads for the megadrive(Genesis) 1 and 2

Black & white picture on vcr & dvd playback

Check your VCR or DVD for correct region and standard. If I had a camcorder, VCR, or DVD player here in America on Pal standard or eupopean region the same thing would happen.In fact I accedently did that on an unknown switch on the camcorder.
