    ok, did that. still black and white. tried different dvds too. tried progressive scan cables and changed settings and got color. however i want to use an s-video cable and when i do it is black and white again. frustrating. If i plug the cables in where they should be on the dvd, i do not get a picture. If i put the video cable in where the progressive scan cables were, I get black and white. So under the video menu, NTSC, then S-video, then interlaced settings on both video 1 and tv?

In order to use component cables (red,blue, green) you must hit "set up" button on dvd remote control. than scroll over to the "video" icon. Once in that screen scroll down to "video output" and switch default (s-video) to "CbYr."

Try going into player's menu, and set video out or TV type to NTSC.
It might have switched to PAL, or disc is PAL and player is set to any.

How to tune up dvd player

  • Plug the power cable of the Samsung VHS/DVD player into an available power outlet near the television.

Connect a set of RCA audio and video cables to the color-coded outputs on the back of your Samsung VHS/DVD player. The colors of these cables are yellow (video), white (left audio) and red (right audio).

Take the other end of the RCA audio and video cables and connect them to the color-corresponding inputs on your television. When plugging in these cables, look for a label for the input, such as "Video 1" and "Audio 1." This will be important in Step 5.

Turn on the television and the Samsung VHS/DVD player.

Tune your television to the video input channel that you noted in Step 3. If you did not take note, you can also tune through your television's input channels until you find the one displaying the signal from the DVD/VCR player.

Insert a VHS tape or DVD into the Samsung player and press the "Play" button to verify that the unit is functioning properly.

Component Video

Plug the power cable of the Samsung VHS/DVD player into an available power outlet near the television.

Connect a set of component video cables to the color-coded outputs on the back of your Samsung VHS/DVD player. These cables will look similar to composite audio and video cables, but they are instead color-coded as red, blue and green.

Plug the other end of the component video cables into the color-corresponding inputs on your television. Take note of what input number you are plugging the cords into, as it will be useful later.

Connect a set of RCA audio cables to "Audio Out" jacks on your VHS/DVD player, then connect the other ends to your television. These cables are color-coded as red and white and must be plugged into the same input number as the component video cables.

Turn on the television and the Samsung VHS/DVD player.

Tune your television to the component video input channel where you connected the Samsung VHS/DVD player.

Insert a VHS or DVD into the Samsung player and press the "Play" button to verify that the unit is functioning properly.

Hi,Would you pls check the connection that you have made between TV and DVD player..?
2xRCA (white+Red) will go to Audio IN sockets of TV in addition to 1xRCA Yellow video cable goes to "Video IN socket of TV..
if the connections are right than you must select the right source on TV ,as AV1 ,AV2 which corresponds to the cable input sockets of your TV.

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.

VHS plays in colour and DVD plays in black and white.

there is a circuit in the color section to put the tv to black and white if the color subcarrier is missing from the broadcast signal.
it is called a color killer and needs to be adjusted.
it is for a technician to do.
it operates off the 3.58mhz color subcarrier.

Need instruction to hook up dvd player

You will need a TV or monitor with audio/visual inputs. The better ones have what is known as an S/VHS input, which separates the TV picture signal for better color reproduction. You will need to be able to switch your TV, usually by the channel selector, to the proper input for audio visual signals. Sometimes this is known as Video 1, Video 2, A/V etc. These are usually below Channel 2. Maybe your remote has that option. You will need an a/v cable. This is a three-connector cable with RCA plugs on each end. Connect the DVD player to the TV as follows: 1. Yellow cable, from video OUT on the DVD player, to video IN on the TV. Video is ALWAYS yellow. 2. Red and white cables from audio OUT on the DVD player to audio IN on the TV. 3. If you have S/VHS capability, buy an S/VHS patch cable which will have the three plugs mentioned, plus a round 4-pin plug. Select S/VHS OUT on the DVD player, and S/VHS IN on the TV. When using S/VHS, ignore the yellow connector. It is for composite video and not needed. Here's a hint: Your YV audio/visual inputs will usually be on the back of the set. Some better units have a/v inputs in front. What if my TV doesn't have a/v inputs? If your DVD player as an RF output, connect an RF "f" cable from that output to the antenna in cable on your TV. Otherwise buy an RF converter (about $20 or so at Radio Shack). Connect your a/v cable (yellow, red and white) from the DVD player to toe converter, then connect an RF cable (like the kind your cable box is connected with) to the antenna input on your TV. This signal usually comes in on Channel 3. Let me know if your problem is more complicated, It seems like a lot of wires and connections, but it is really straightforward, Remember, yellow is ALWAYS video. The two audio cables can be connected without worrying about color.

Black and White video on S-Video output

The Concept of S-video is Splited Video Signal (Luminance for black and white, Chrominance for colors), in your case the luminance is ok but there is no chrominance out. Expert technician is required: Check for dry solder at the s-video out outlet. Good Luck Toufic Malek

VHS tapes are black and white

The tapes are B/W or one of the playback video heads is not making contact with the tape. The video head may need to be adjusted. You can take it in to get it fixed or buy a new one. The unit today is worth around $25-$30.
