Check it with an other known disc, and make sure that the fault is with the DVD player itself. Electro help

We have a new VISIO HD TV. We have a Sony DVD/VHS combo player. Tried playing DVD and picture comes up in 480 dpi, in black and white instead of color and you can see pixels.

Assuming that there is no issue with the brand new TV or the DVD player....

1. Black and white issue could be due to a misrouted video component cabletomcattech17.jpg

2. The pixels could be just a problem with the low resolution that the DVD may be putting out or the current aspect ratio setting.

If it's connected via SCART, check the cable is connected both sides. If this doesn't fix the problem, try a different cable. If this still doesn't fix it, it will be a fault with your dvd player.

DVD plays only in black and white

Hey, I had this problem on Thanksgiving Day, trying to watch a dvd on my mother's HDTV. You should be able to hook up most standard dvd players to hdtvs. First you have 3 cords, mine were red, yellow, and white. The connections go as follows:

Audio| Component. The white cord should be in a white audio slot. The yellow cord should be in a yellow component slot (video) and the red cord should be in a red video component slot labeled Pr/Cr. Make sure you match the component numbers. For instance, if you want to use component one, then hook all of the cords into the slots for component one. Most hdtvs have multiple component hookups ( think multiple "channels" for your game system, dvd player, etc) so it's important that the corresponding cords go to the correct component slots.

Match the yellow and white cords to the appropriately colored slots. The red cord should go into the slot labeled component video out Cr/Pr. Not the red audio out. This worked for me. Hope this helps.

VCR/DVD setup for color on LCD TV

check to see you have the cables required by the tv. usually you need hdmi or dvid for hd display. digital rights management protocols have resulted in chips in playing devices that allow only the use of the referenced cables to protect content from being copied. in some sets they default to not playing in hd, but still play something.
look there first, otherwise you may have an input source mismatch. follow instructions on the dvd player first, then make sure the tv has compatible settings.
if that does not solve, you have a service issue with one or both.
good luck
