Well most newer systems tend to use the green jack with others as well, as far as i know this only puts out black and white try pluggig it into the yellow jack on your tv insted of the green one posably it could be a filter built into the tv with the green jack( i hope this fixes the problem if not im sorry that i was of no help)

My TV rca model hd52w68 HV black in white Pict

I think you were trying to say you have a black and white picture(?) Make sure you haven't connected a composite(yellow) video source to a component (red/blue/green) connection on the TV.(If you connect a composite video to the green component connector,it will appear to be in black and white).

My Plasma 42PD580DTA

I assume your DVD is coming up in colour when you plug it into a standard scart connector? Have you tried using a different S-Video cable because this sound symptomatic of a dodgy lead?
Check the SCART end of your lead for any bent or broken pins.

Failing that if the problem lies with the TV itself I'd really recommend having a pro look at it. Plasma's are expensive and opening it up if you don't know what you are doing is a bad idea.

Dear Sir My Dvl 919 dvd player component output give black and white images no colour but SVHS have color images.Pls advise Erwin Koh

there are three wires associated with "component output" .. those have to be hooked up to component inputs on your TV .. not to the composite video input .. if you do hook up to composite you will get only a black and white picture .. make sure all three wires are connected correctly then select the proper input in your TV setup ..

Connecting sky box to to non scart reysis tv,via scart plug cable

This lead is usually coloured yellow and looks like the red and white leads you use to connect the tv speaker OUT sockets to an amplifier or external speakers. The input on the tv should be coded yellow also.

When connecting video or set-top box using composite video cable picture is black and white. If I use S-video I get colour. Video only has scart and tv only has composite/component/s video connectors so I...

you really cant convert to component. it defeats the whole purpose of upgrading your tv. with your tv you should be using hdmi to connect all your devices your cable box should deffinatly have one. any time you connect component to something else you will get black and white hdmi is totally digital where as component is still analog pluse you dont need audio cables with hdmi its just one digital cable

Trying to import analogue video from VHS

I _assume_ you're feeding PAL video into the MV500i... one of the simplest ways to lose color information is to feed an NTSC (or PAL60) source to a standard PAL display.

Another possibility is that you're losing the chroma signal. I believe this camcorder has a composite (CVBS) analog input. If you're tapping off a SCART connector, make sure you use a SCART to composite cable, not SCART to Y/C (luminance/chroma). Are you using the same cabling with the camcorder as with the TV?

Avermedia Averkey lite - Monitor Colour Display Issue

I had the same problem. I was going from PC -> Dvd recorder -> TV.
I had the S-Video output from the averkey going via an adaptor into the DVD scart input. I discovered a setting within the DVD menu which could select between 's-video' and 'composite video' on the scart socket. (it appears that scart can carry either/or, I guess).

I changed from composite to s-video, and I got colour.

I think seeing a greyscale image indicates that the signal being sent is S-Video, but the equipment that is recieving it is expecting composite video.

If it's just one video plug, then perhaps you have to set av5 as being in colour somwhere in the menus.  If you require three wires for the pictures, as blue, green, and red, then make sure they aren't in the wrong ports.
Good luck.
