Question about Televison & Video
I was watching a dvd in colour. I accidentally sat on the dvd remote which I'm guessing pressed a sequence of buttons. This changed the picture to black & white. I went through the dvd user manual but couldn't find any setting which toggles between colour/black & white. I would like to get the dvd to play in colour again.
It is not the TV which is causing this as normal tv plays fine in colour. The tv is also connected to a VCR which is also playing fine in colour.
Note: when the dvd player is switched on, a "Philips" screen comes on. This is in colour. It is only when the dvd is played that the colour is lost. I have tried several dvds - all in black & white.
I tried switching between PAL and NTSC, dvd still plays in black and white.
If you can assist, that would be great. Thanks.
Same problem with an older JVC player. One end of the S-video cable was loose. Pushed in in tight and everything ok again. Cheap fix if it works for you.

If you provide the brand of the DVD and remote, I would be able to look up the specs and then tell you how to reset your factory default settings.
Also, if you want to look up this information, what you are looking for is information on resetting the factory defaults of your DVD player. Check the manufacture's website for the documentation, or google the brand of DVD player and look for the users manual as the search item.
I hope this helps,

Sharp DVNC65H plays tapes in colour bout DVDs in monochrome. Solution for me was to set the TV to s-video.

If connected using a scart lead the S-VIDEO function may have been switched resulting in B&W picture. Could try selecting this.
