Re: hooked up my dvd player no color

Go to the settings menu in the dvd player. You will need to change the output settings to
match the output you are using. Whether it is s-video, component, or hdmi . This will fix the color issue.

Re: hooked up my dvd player no color

Could be an NTSC/PAL button you need to press. Some DVD players have this either on the remote control or the player itself to match with the TV region code or DVD itself.

MY TV will not show color on the tv .I have a protron PDS2315 .I don't have the cables that came with the DVD player Does that make the deference?

Hi zapchenk,

First of all, thank you for posting your question here at

The most common caused of "No color" fault when viewing movies through DVD player are :
1. Wrong TV/DVD format - If your TV is a NTSC system format and not knowingly your DVD player is set to PAL/Secam system format, then there's no color generated to your TV due to incorrect video frequency signal coming from the DVD player.
Solution : You have to sync/match the system format of the TV and DVD player. Check first the system format of the DVD player through the menu. Try to change it from PAL/Secam to NTSC.
2. Wrong hooked up - Since the problem is in video, you have to check the video hooked to your TV and DVD player. HDMI jack is the best option to avoid wrong hooked up because it come with Audio and Video in just one cable. If you are using one RCA cable to connect the video, make sure that it is hooked up to Video in of the TV and Video out of the DVD player, it is usually color yellow RCA jack. If you are using the component video hooked up, you must have 3 RCA cable for video alone. It is color coded as green(Y), blue(Pb/Cb), and red(Pr/Cr) RCA jack.

My advice is to check first the system format and then the video hooked up.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Good luck and take care!

Kind Regards,

I have an apex ad-5131 dvd player i want to hoook up speakers to to but how? i dont understand the coaxil i matched all of them by color to color but it still doesn't work

The outputs on the dvd are line level and will need to be hooked up to an external amplifier or stereo receiver in order to make speaker work...all you do is hook the audio output right (red) and left(white) to the amplifier and then hook the speakers to the speaker outputs on the amplifier

How do we hook up the D.V.D. player to the T.V. We think we have done it correct but it does not play.

couple of ways but the easiest way would be connecting the video and audio out from DVD (need rca connections yellow red and white)
Yellow --- Video
white and red is audio out left and right.
find in your tv set inputs with similar colors its going to be input 1
or input 2 (as an example)
once you conect the cable matching colors yellow to yellow red to red and white to white make sure you select the same input on your set (video 1 or 2) that its throu input selection in remote control from tv or set itself.

Hooking it up

Easy, just match up color codes from tv to dvd player. If you only have red, yellow and white, they should coincide wih the TV as some TV's dont have the 5 color jacks R/W/G/B/Y inputs. If they do, use the colorstream or "comp" input on the TV

DVD Plays in Black and White

Depending what cables you have, try plugging only the yellow cable into "video out", I previously had red, white, and yellow cables plugged into "comopents out" and only got black and white. Doing only the yellow into video out gave me color.
