DVD playback in black and white

I am attempting to set up my DVD player on a Jensen TV. The DVD player work fine I had it on another TV, but now when I try to connect it to my Jensen tv it will only play back in black and white. I am sure there must be a simple solution to this but as of yet I can't find it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanx.

We have a Philips Magnavox Model #TP3284C101 TV and plugged in a Durabrand DVD Model #DVD1002 player to it. It will only play in black and white on this TV. But when we plug the DVD player into another TV...

It sounds like you have a standard problem.
Is the TV you are using, that gives the black and white picture, the same as the other ie, both NTSC or PAL and both on RGB or Y-C or S-Video?
Check to see what is required and set the DVD player accordingly.
Hope that helps.

I have sony wega trinitron and a day back purchased a new LG DVD player but the picture is black and white.I tried the Setup to change the color from auto to PAL but the option color change is permanantly...

Your TV model has only NTSC system with it. No PAL or SECAM. It is not a mutisystem compactable one. Check whether your DVD has NTSC playback option. If it has, you can see discs writed in NTSC system through your TV. If it has not equipped with that system, it is useless for your TV. Sony KV32FS120 and KV36FS120 models are only meant of US standard, and have only NTSC system with it. Ok.

DVD plugged into red, white and green(Yellow) TV imputs, results

Yeah no color coz its black and white. Color coding commonly yellow wire for video, red and white wire for audio. It should also be from DVD to TV, video out and audio out going to video in and audio in. And switch the TV to play video and the audio inputted. Maybe TV/Video Switch or button.

Hope it helps

Hooking dvd player up to tv

Sounds to me as if you have not set the Playback CODEC properly.. In the Menu system, as in NTSC or PAL. Make sure that the DVD & Player are set the same Format ie: NTSC or PAL..

Does not recognize cable channels

All you have to do is connect those yellow red and white cables to one of your tv inputs in the back either video 1 2 or 3 and you should have both your dvd player and cable working. Make sure your black cable is connected through coaxial in the back of your tv and the yellow white and red cables from the dvd player to video 1 in the back of your tv if anything else just let me know...
