Re: no colour

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)

Directv can't connect my tv to he, what can I do, they say I need a green plug in in the back,with the red, yellow, white

What I believe they are trying to tell you is you need to hook up into a component input . It is a video input only and it has three jacks usually coloured red green and blue. Match up the colours with the receiver and you will get an HD picture. They way you currently have it hooked up is a composite connection with only the yellow being for picture. This cannot get you an HD picture. The red and white is for the sound. I don't know what you mean by he though.

Hi,I can play a DVD disc on the system and get sound from the surround sound speakers but I can't get a picture on the tv,Sony Trinitron.The connetions are from the DAV S500:(DVD only)red and white cable...

First try with yellow video output of DAV-S500 in yellow video TV input to get its picture. (yellow output means composite video out)
Green-Blue-Red video output is component output that will be turn on when you switch the unit into Progressive picture mode, that option would be available in Menu of DAV-S500
Hope this info will help you.

My dvd's are all in black and white for some


Try checking the connections between the dvd player and the tv, make sure they are fully pushed in.

If that doesnt work and you have a spare socket on the back of your tv try swapping the lead to that one.

I know that with scart leads if they arnt fully pushed in you will get a black and white picture.

I hope its thats simple..

Black and White instead of color

Make sure both S-video (black round connector) and Composite video (yellow connector) are connected to video outputs not inputs. It can also be the S-video is disconected, that will give you a black and white picture. FR

DVDs play in black and white

Try use connect your dvd player with just RCA(composite video) and see if you get regular color picture.If so,you need to go to the system menu to check the video output and see if it is under R Pr Pb-component video setting?If not,be sure to change it to component video setting AND use component video cable to connect to your TV unless your TV don't have this connection.

check your connections on the back of the tv and back of the dvd player. make sure you are using the proper conections on the back of the tv. if you connect the RCA (composite) cables (red yellow white) you should be going from the red yellow white on the tv to the red yellow white on the dvd player. if you have the component(red blue green) connection on the dvd connected to the red yellow white on the tv, you may get a black and white picture. If this does not work, check the manual for the dvd player and see if there is a way to turn "Progressive Scan" features off, some older TV's cannot handle a progressive scan dvd player.
