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.

Is the TV PAL or NTSC? The symptom you are experiencing is what would happen if you are trying to play back a NTSC signal on a PAL TV or vica versa. If you have a scart connection on theTV then use a scart lead to connect from the DVD player to the TV. Set the DVD player for RGB output which is independent of PAL & NTSC.

Will only play back in black and white. How to fix this?

You may have the wrong setting, depending on whether your TV is PAL or NTSC. Check the settings for the DVD recorder and make sure your TV is the same (PAL/SECAM for Europe, NTSC for America). If you connect via the scart lead, then set the unit to output RGB. Also check that your lead is OK.

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.

OK,you need 3 leads,(A/V leads),normally red white and yellow.

So yellow is for Picture (video).go from video OUT (combo) to TV video IN.

Then red and white .... Audio OUT of combo into Audio IN on TV

TV must then be set to AV1 or AV2 depending on which AV inputs you used..
