If you are using the AV inputs on the set, make sure that the DVD player is not in Progressive scan mode. ( see your owners manual )

SOURCE: Black & White picture for DVD

When using the Component outputs on the player, make sure they are enabled in the player menu system (or sometimes there is a rear panel switch and sometimes both), as most players default the Component outputs to off. Even when the Component outputs are off, you will often get a color-distorted signal out as many players share circuitry between the various outputs.

If you plugged the yellow wire from your DVD player into the "Y" input of the TV this is to be expected. Please refer to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Component_video for information regarding this.
You need to either see if the DVD player has component out, or see if there is a "Video-in" (that's yellow, not green in color) on the back of the TV and change to that input instead.

Gone black and white


Check the settings and make sure they are set correctly for the type of connection you are using. ie. if you are using the red/white/and yellow wires the setting should be on component not composite.

Dynex dx-32l151a11 the picture is black and white with the dvd player


With a Black and White picture it sounds like you're trying to connect the DVD Player's "Composite" connection to the TV's Component Connection.

Composite is a 3 wire system with Yellow for the video, and red and white for the audio. On your TV this connection is located on the side.

Component is a 5 wire system, with Blue, Green & Red for Video, and Red and White for audio. On your TV this connection type is located on the rear panel.

Check to make sure you are hooking the DVD player & the TV to the same input types.

I have a memorex dvd player and a dynex 32" lcd hdtv. I have all the cord correctly in the component plugs but the picture is black and white and there is no sound.


HI,
i think ur component video connection may inter changed. check it. are u connected red to red, green to green an blue to blue. if interchanged the picture will be black and white. also check the video system of ur tv and dvd.
about audio. for that u need a stereo rca chord. connect the audio output of ur dvd to the component audio input of ur tv. if u have already connected the audio cable , check the audio setup of ur dvd. there is selection for pcm audio select it and then check again.
ok

When i hook up dvd player to a insignia plasma tv i get a picture & sound but it is in black&white.how do i get to be color


if you connect composit video from your DVD player to the "Y" jack of the tv then you will get only a black and white picture .. the composit video out of your DVD has to be connected to the composit video input of the TV .. or if you have component outputs on your DVD then you can hook those up to the "three" component inputs of the tv .. (you have to have all three hooked up plus 2 audio cables ..

DVD picture is in Black & White only.


Are you trying to play an NTSC disc in a PAL player, If so,your player has a switch or
on-screen setting to select the output format for NTSC discs,

Or maybe you have connected one of the component outputs (Y, R-Y, or B-Y) of
your DVD player to the composite input of your TV.

DVD'S Play only in black and white


In UK this occures when an NTSC picture is played from a DVD player to a TV which cannot enitrely hand NTSC format. Possible this will happen in the reverse for USA.

Also my TV cannot handle SVHS signals and also displays them in black and white.

Try changing settings on the DVD Player to Composite or RGB.
